Stanley cuts Usmanov out + Portsmouth v Arsenal: lets get it out the way

In Arsenal FC, Premier League on May 2, 2009 by Highbury N5 Editor

Stan Kroenke is now the largest shareholder of Arsenal. The club have said:

Arsenal Holdings plc (the “Company”) has received notification that on 1st May 2009 KSE, UK, Inc. (“KSE”), a company controlled by Stan Kroenke, a Director of the Company, acquired 4,839 ordinary shares of £1.00 each in the Company from members of the Carr family, including Richard Carr, a Director of Arsenal Football Club plc. The  shares were acquired at prices of £8,500 per share and £10,500 per share.

As a result of the acquisition, Stan Kroenke has a beneficial interest in, and controls voting rights over 17,613 ordinary shares in the Company, representing 28.3% of the Company’s issued ordinary shares.

Richard Carr, Arsenal Director said: “It has been a wonderful ride and the family have enjoyed every minute of it. I hope there will be many more magic moments for us in the future.”

Peter Hill-Wood, Chairman of Arsenal: “I would like to pay tribute to the long-standing commitment that the Carr family has shown towards Arsenal. The Club is hugely indebted to them for the role that they have played in the development and success of the Club over the years. The Board particularly wish to thank Richard Carr for his hard work, effort and integrity since joining the Board in 1981 and I am pleased to say that Richard will continue on as a Director of the Club.”

Not really going to go into the details of it as there really is not much point but I will again point you to an exclusive I published months back where a source pointed out to me that Kroenke will take over Arsenal.

What this really does mean is that Usmanov, the troll mirroring oligarch billionaire criminal cunt, who has lost a lot of money recently (HAHAHAHAHAHA! – sorry) has no say in the running of the club and will not be able to launch a takeover of the club as Kroenke can just simply overpower the fat troll. Arsenal Football Club is slowly changing.

Moving on….there are noises that Fran Merida might be given a chance against Portsmouth tomorrow, I’m unaware as to the strength of the rumours but hopefully we put out a side decent enough to get something at Fratton Park. A win would secure our top four place and keep alive chances of third place, it would also give us a little momentum going into the big game on Tuesday which I will move onto in just a moment.

I am expecting wholesale changes to be honest, out go Fabregas, Adebayor, Nasri, Walcott and Song and in come Ramsey, Bendtner, Merida, Diaby and maybe even Bischoff. Sagna may be rested for Eboue and Vela could also play on one of the wings. To be honest, guessing this starting eleven will be a totally pointless exercise so you know what? I’m not going to do it. Three points would do me fine though.

You can’t really blame the players for having one eye on Tuesday and to be honest if they feel like leaping out of 50/50 tackles I endorse it….just this once. Any more injuries and I will probably cry because I’m sick to the back teeth of them. There has not been a week go by where we have not had a ‘setback’ or a ‘knock’ or ‘niggle’ or any other word for injuries. Get some more medical staff in with some of the ticket revenue because it looks like they are needed I can tell you. The club doctor has not been lonely this season.

I expect us to deploy a 4-4-2. You hear that Wenger. A FOUR FOUR TWO. Like the magazine?

It does not work in the big games, that has been proven by two shite semi-final performances in the last few weeks so a switch back to our best formation would be much appreciated. Nobody really cares about this game but its still important in its own way… Pompey have nothing to play for but we have not got a good result down there in a few years and they are always tricky to beat.

I’m not sure what else I should say before the game…I don’t think I’m going to be able to catch it as Ive got an errand to run…to be honest I don’t think it will be much of a spectacle.

Here’s to three points and no more injuries. Bit of a scatty post today.

til tomorrow.
