Arsenal's majority shareholder Stan Kroenke was at The Emirates for their draw with Hull, will it have convinced him to spend?

Arsenal's majority shareholder Stan Kroenke was at The Emirates as the club scraped a 2-2 draw with Hull City.

For fans hoping the American will pump more money into the club, it was perhaps an ideal game for him to attend.

Arsenal have had a poor start to the Premier League season, amassing 11 points from a potential 24.

Kroenke was making a rare visit to the stadium due to the club holding their annual general meeting (AGM) the week prior to the match.

A man of few words publicly, Kroenke comes across as very passive when it comes to Arsenal, with the club perceived as an investment of his rather than a passion, and has been dubbed 'Silent Stan'.

He did not seem full of joy at the weekend, although there were very few smiles among fans at the final whistle, with Arsene Wenger's side losing further ground on league leaders Chelsea.

Kroenke was scrutinised at the club's AGM over a £3 million payment from the club's account into a Kroenke Sports and Entertainment fund.

The Independent reported that chairman Sir Chips Keswick stated in response: "This fee was proposed by myself and Lord Harris (of Peckham) for the wide range of services provided to Arsenal Football Club by Kroenke Sports and Entertainment

"KSE is one of the most respected and successful sports organisations in the United States, operating in the most sophisticated sports business market in the world. They have an extensive and long experience in modern sports management.

"It is of the utmost importance that as a club we use it to our best advantage to ensure we keep progressing."

If Arsenal are to really progress however, it is imperative that money is spend on players in key positions to start helping the team achieve more consistently in the Premier League.
