You know that stupid, stupid game i was supposed to play in last night? Well i wish i didn’t because I’ve got a massive swelling around the side of my foot and my god does it hurt….still, i have a blog to write.
You may remember in December of last year i made contact with a source that gave me information towards a takeover by Stan Kroenke, possibly being in the summer of this year. Weeks later, Lady Nina left. Now there has been another significant happening. At the time i wrote:
Fiszman will probably leave in 2009/2010
He has just sold a massive chunk of his stake in the club, but can you believe a man that only stays in this country 90 nights a year to avoid tax? Tax exiles are not welcome on these shores in my view and i certainly do not trust them. Read Fiszman’s statement here.
Now, personally i think Kroenke will eventually take over the club with the blessing of the current board and to be honest i would much rather him take over the club than that walrus looking Uzbek bastard.
Ivan Gazidis seems a very good man, one of the best at the club and i trust what he says, on the issue he stated exactly what occurred yesterday:
Yes. Danny Fiszman, who is a long-time member of our Board, has sold 5,000 of his shares to Stan Kroenke, who joined the Board in September. That represents about eight per cent of Arsenal Football Club and takes Dannyâ€™s holding down to 16 per cent and Stanâ€™s goes up to around 20 per cent.
And on the daily running of the club he commented:
No, itâ€™s business as usual. Itâ€™s a transaction between two Board members, both of whom believe in the philosophy of the Club, the self-sustaining philosophy on a day-to-day level. It has absolutely no impact at all.
I think we are going to be in for a very interesting summer in the Arsenal backroom i have to say. I think we are going to be taken over sooner rather than later, and if Danny Fiszman claims he is an Arsenal fan then why the hell would he do a transaction of this magnitude at such a stage in the season?
What made it so urgent?
All he wants is money, that is simple from the fact that he is a tax exile. Arsenal supporter? My arse.
I would welcome your thoughts on a takeover of Arsenal by Stan Kroenke, Walrus face, Mickey Mouse..anyone. What are your views on a potential takeover of our club? Drop me a comment and get debating amongst yourself because this really does split opinion. Do give this article a read through again.
Right folks I’m going to leave it at that for today. I’m in agony…agony i tell you!
More in the injuries to Van Persie and Bendtner tomorrow, it goes without saying i am nothing short of livid.
Til then, t’ra.
