It is fair to say that Arsenal have been on the decline for some time now.
Long gone are the days where the Gunners were considered one of the top two or three clubs in the Premier League.
The likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea have overtaken the north Londoners as the top sides in England.
The decline began in what was a rather sad end to Arsene Wenger’s stint at the club, with the Frenchman failing to achieve a top-four place in his final two campaigns.
That trend has continued under both Unai Emery and Mikel Arteta, with Arsenal currently not even in the top-six under the former Manchester City coach.
AFTV named most profitable YouTube fan channel
Whilst the decline of Arsenal hasn’t been great for most of their fans, a handful have been able to capitalise on the Gunners’ growing decline.
Pretty much everyone who follows the Premier League in some capacity will be aware of Arsenal Fan TV.
The fan-led channel boasts over 1.3m subscribers on YouTube and attracts interest from fans of other clubs – largely due to some of the classic rants of both fans on the show and the presenters.
Now, an insight into the profit made by AFTV has been provided.
According to a recent report, AFTV have the most views historically, the most views over the past 12 months and the most views over the past 30 days out of all of the fan-led football channels.
It is added that AFTV are believed to make £1.2m-per-year from YouTube ads alone, which works out at around £32,000 from every Arsenal match.
