Usmanov Can Fuc.......Go Away

Usmanov Can Fuc.......Go Away

Up until now, I have refrained from writing anything about Usmanov and his supposed takeover, not through fear of retribution from him and his lawyers, oh no, through the simple fact that all this 'city' talk has me baffled. I can tell you how much change you'd get from a £20 note for a pint of Stella and a packet of pork scratchings, but that's about it.

But after reading Usmanov's latest comments about his plans for the club, I can safely say, from the bottom of my red and white heart.......

'F*** of and leave us alone, we don't want you here.'

Putting aside the allegations made against him regarding various crimes (Yeah, I do value the small amount of cash I have in my wallet) his visions for the club are nothing more than self serving.

Usmanov said recently, 'I want a position (in Arsenal) that would allow me to have a blocking stake and then wait for its value to rise,'

'They (the shares) have a 50 to 100% growth potential.'

Whilst the romanticist in me would want board members that will, first and foremost, serve the club, I'm not so naive as to believe our existing board don't want to make a few quid from their Arsenal adventure. However they have plans, a vision of where they see the club going, they have an interest in football (well most of 'em do) they want to see Arsenal become the biggest and best footballing side in the entire world, and don't just see them as a way to make a quick buck.

In Usmanov's latest interview, not once did he mention the team, what he hoped for them to achieve or what avenues he wants the club to go down, he simply wants to make money, lots of it, and quickly.

This is unacceptable. He needs to be stopped, and I pray the board that has brought us so far, and so much, has the balls to stand up to this man and prevent him from becoming anything close to the owner of our club.

So if Mr Usmanov's lawyers are reading this (which they probably are) you can tell him from me, that in Paul Mustchin's opinion, and in the opinion of many thousands of Gooners, you would be bad for the club, and we don't want you here, not now, not ever.

Nice one Rocky, I take it vital has'nt had any threats through yet from this scumbags' legal team? seems like they've contacted several gooner blogs and told them in no uncertain terms not to print anything regarding the criminals' criminally criminal activities. Other web hosters have been ordered to take down posts regarding the fat criminal resulting in Blogs that have nothing to do with the criminal being taken down (ie Boris Johnson!) Haul your morbidly obese criminal carcass elsewhere please Usmanov.
