Hill-Wood Seeks Silent Stan Help

Peter Hill-Wood is hoping to enlist the help of Silent Stan Kroenke in order to shut out a possible takeover of the club.

The current Arsenal board had previously agreed a 12 month lock-down period in which no member may buy or sell any of their shareholdings.

It is hoped that that period will be extended for another year, and that the American Tycoon will lend a helping hand in this apparent public protest.

'I think it would be rather nice if he would join the lockdown. It's obviously up to him, but we would certainly welcome it,' Hill-Wood told the Daily Telegraph.

'He now sees the benefits of a long-term relationship with us and he is not remotely interested in making a bid.

'He knows perfectly well what we are up to with the lockdown and I don't think he disapproves of it. We have been comforted by that. We don't want to be taken over.'

The noises coming for Hill-Wood and his buddies are extremely comforting and everything appears to be being handled in the right way, the Arsenal way.

I bet PHW wishes he could take back that "We don't need need his money and we don't need his sort" comment now! I honestly think Kroenke was misinterpreted originally. The way he operates with his other sports interests, he seems rather hands off. He's an investor, not a buyer...that's a good thing. I really hope this all works out!

I don't think that Kroenke was so much misintepreted as misled. Dein led him to believe the boards resolve was less committed than it apparently is. Now both Kroenke and the board need something from each other there is a fair chance that Kroenkes investment can be made to work for him and for the club. - without the need to satisfy Deins ambitions.

Strange that the very man Dein initially brought in could be the man that will now stand in the way of his goal.

Usmanov scares me. pure and simple. I don't want to imagine what would happen to the Arsenal if Usmanov got his hands on it, even if he doesn't do anything to boss Wenger around a la Abromovich. Keep him out of London

It all seems to be falling into Kroenkes hands, before he was hated now he is a bit of a saviour to us.

This is good news, although conspiracy theorists will probably eye Kroenke's closeness to the Board with suspicion, as part of a Machiavellian plan to take-over the club anyway. Some reports suggest that Kroenke is not keen to sign this lock down agreement, but as long as he and the Board agree on the significant items, and Kroenke wants to develop the relationship from a long term perspective for Colorado Rapids, I think the short term danger has been averted.
