Voice Your Concerns About Usmanov

Voice Your Concerns About Usmanov

Tom Watson is a member of parliament for West Bromwich East, and for reason unknown to me, seems to have taken an interest in the potential take over from the more than unwanted Alisher Usmanov.

Mr Watson, on his website, has stated his intentions to discuss the matter further with his colleagues at Westminster.

Tom said 'I`ve had a fair number of Arsenal fans email me this morning. I`m going to talk to colleagues in Westminster about Mr Usmanov`s bid for Aresenal. I`d be interested to know your views in the comments section of this post.'

So with that in mind, I invite all Gooners with growing concerns about this man and his take over, to leave a comment for Tom on his website Click Here. or email him at watsont@parliament.uk

I'd like to take this opportunity to remind anybody wishing to contact Mr Watson to keep your comments and emails to the point, un-offensive and not in anyway defamatory.

His site was taken down along with Craig Murray's, by mistake. Its good that he is concerned about this.

I shall put my cards down on the table. I'm a Spurs fan. I really DO NOT LIKE Arsenal. I feel that your policy towards frequently playing NO players able to represent England at international level is a disgrace for a team that is based in England - heard all the excuses and they hold as much water as your average sieve. HOWEVER - I've written to Mr Watson this morning as I don't think clubs in the home of football should become a dumping ground for the ill gotten and dubiously acquired gains of reprehensible individuals who have no interest in this country, no interest in our national game and no interest in continuing with the efforts that all clubs make to benefit our society. That may appear nationalistic to some fans not based in the UK and I make no apologies for it. Today it's you under threat but tomorrow it could be us. First it was Chelsea, though Abramovich seems ok, then ManC where their own is definitely not ok, and now you lot .... does anybody notice a sliding scale here in the decency of the owners? Get behind the PL/FA and get them to declare he's an unfit person to own a club.

Gromit - While you comments regarding our "Englishness" are mis-guided, and indeed blinkered, you a correct about one thing, this can happen to any team. Until football associations and boards around the world start rejecting these people from our clubs, any fool with money can buy into them and do with them what they please. No matter what they have done in the past or how they aquired their money!!

The only point I would disagree with Gromit over is Abramovich, he's is at least a football fan. He's one of the richest guy's on the planet, and as such must have business interests all over the world. Yet he's at every home and most away games, that's a football fan.

Oops! Sorry about that. As I was going to say Rocky7! I'm sure as an Arsenal fan would not like to see some players in your team that represent your country (whichever country that might be)? I cannot understand why someone of the calibre of Wenger cannot unearth a Stephen Gerard, Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, Micah Richards and so on. Their is something within your club that I don't quite understand, believe me I'm not having a pop. And I can also understand your defence of your club, but their has to be a reason why this has happened at Arsenal!

Kev, I choose to believe that the word that has been "starred out" says "very nice man".

It hasn't happened at Arsenal. Infact Arsenal have produced more players to play for England over the last 5 years than United, Liverpool Chelsea and Spurs. Just because they no longer play for us does not mean Wenger has not done his bit to produce English players. The reason they do not play for us anymore (Ashley Cole aside) is that we have happened upon better players. Is it not acceptable to play our best players, rather than inferior English ones? Indeed you own club seems to be adopting our policy, slowly but surely. Bent aside, your transfer dealings of late have seen English players leave and foreign players come in. Difference is, we are now producing more English talent in the youth set ups than any other club.
