Why the liverpool sale might mean Arsenal is sold too

With the impending sale of liverpool to another billionaire, the challenges to Arsenal off the pitch are growing. Last season the debate about Arsenal’s potential ownership structure was a constant theme up until the anti-climatic May deadline. But watch for a resurgence in this debate if liverpool are purchased by an owner that has no desire to operate within any fiscal restraint. As liverpool go, so goes the Arsenal. Continue reading

This is stability? Fab, Bracewell and NEW billionaire owner. Has the Board given up?

Big money money big money money! The rumors about the money flying around our beloved Arsenal are high right now. And I’m not talking about potential transfers. If the rumors are true, the Arsenal Board approved a special pay day to Fab last summer. Meanwhile, Bracewell might sell her shares to yet another billionaire. Time for a Gallic shrug? Just when I thought the manciteh game was going to bore us to death and with the May 1st fire works fast approaching, the soap opera at the Emirates continues. Continue reading

Usmanov preparing to launch take over bid for Arsenal

True to form, Usmanov has begun to make his move to take over Arsenal. To be sure, I want Kroenke to buy the team and hope I’m wrong, but I have my doubts. Bracewell’s inexplicable move to sell her shares on the open market smells more of a wounded ego than actually caring about the Club and Usmanov has quickly jumped on the opportunity.

Why Kroenke might sell his Arsenal shares

That’s right, just before our big Derby match, the Board decides to go off the deep end. Prepare yourselves my fellow Gooners this summer is going to be a roller coaster. Lady Bracewell-Smith made her play, hoping to cash in on Kroenke. But no. Kroenke turns the tables and upends Arsenal and the NFL (maybe even the NBA, but that’s a whole other story). How? Because he announces that he wants to buy the St. Louis Rams. Sadly this decision illustrates why Silent Sam is a good businessman, just what we need; so his potential movement away from Arsenal is bad for the Club. Continue reading

MayDay: preparing for the Kroenke take over of Arsenal

I’m just acting as if last weekend didn’t even happen. So lets not talk about it. Instead, lets focus on Kroenke again for a minute because the money machine was moving last week. More shares were purchased and new questions about Kroenke’s ownership of the Rams has come up.  So the May countdown is on. I wish we could put a counter on the website: May Day is about to take on a whole new significance for Arsenal fans. Continue reading

A Beautiful Mind

Watching Jose Mourinho’s classy exit from the bridge was a good reminder that football geniuses are in short supply.  I (and others who admit to it) feel like idiots for questioning his 4-3-3 line-up.  And this made me stop and think: maybe I’m being too hard on our genius.  Continue reading

Dear Arsenal (Tom Fox!), Please don’t forget your cousins across the pond.

Dear Arsenal,

“How do I love thee?  Yet you spurn my amorous glances and love as if I carry about me a foul and unpleasant odor.”  Such is the opening line American supporters of Arsenal might write to Arsenal.  With the potential to have millions of fans in the US, yes millions, and the dollars that go along with them, Arsenal needs to do more to cultivate the support on this side of the Atlantic.  I’m talking to you Tom Fox.  And, I’ve got a few ideas and they all start with Arsenal America.
