Usmanov Shows His True Class

Usmanov Shows His True Class

The Daily Mirror are reporting that Alisher Usmanov is showing what a truly classy geezer he is, by attempting to gain his 'blocking stake' by purchasing shares from Arsenal supporters who have died.

It is estimated that 1% of all Gunners shares are owned by people who have passed away. City sources say they are difficult to track down, but not impossible. While the number of shares is nominal, the 1% could prove pivotal in Usmanov's bid.

Usmanov has already developed a relationship with Arsenal fans by trying to silence Gooners on the Internet(and non gooners) using strong armed tactics and violating our freedom of speech, using our club as a way to make a quick buck, trying to undo all the fantastic work the current board has done, and now trying to profit from people who have died.........well I never said it was a good relationship did I?

This latest move will only serve to strengthen the resolve of the board and various Arsenal groups who have joined together in the fight against this horrible man. RedAction, AISA & The Arsenal Supporters Trust have all united to stop this revolution. In turn, hundreds of of sites across the blogosphere (including this one) have given campaigns to stop Usmanov their 100% backing.

As yet, I am still to meet 1 Gooner who is happy with Usmanov and his ambitions for Arsenal Football Club.............and I doubt I will find one either.

Well he has already made £75M out of it so far scooch. Dein for me now is the the evil genius you see on films. The start out on the side of good, but have different opinions to others, in his attempt to prove his peers wrong he completely loses sight of what he was trying to achieve in the first place, and becomes a raging looney hell bent on revenge. Sat in his lair at night, lightening crackling round him, rubbing his hands with glee at the thought of his enemies demise.

It would be interesting to know how this story got out. Is it Usmanovs lot trying to keep the pressure on? Or is the story out of the club or a broker? Either way he seems to be struggling to pick up more shares at the moment. We need to make him and Dein feel as uncomfortable and unloved as possible. The Downing Street petition has, for the moment, understandably stalled (it's just under 3,500 at the present) but if anyone hasn't signed up there is still plenty of time to do so at http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Oligarchs/

I think I know what you're saying Rocky. Star Wars Arsenal style. It is like Dein being a Jedi that later ends up being consumed by power and joining the Dark Side. We know who Jabba the Hut is (Jol), but who is Princess Leia and who is the Wookie in the story?

If only tevez was a bit taller... he could be Chewie...as I said in a previous article. The end is near... I'll be cheering for usmanov to buy the club, just to take the *****, and then I'll be one of those guys who go "it's a disgrace to football people like usmanov buying clubs, it makes me sick" , and all that good stuff. :-)

He bought another 24 shares yesterday, for 10,500 each. It's all gonna add up slowly but surely unfortunately. Just hope the board all hang on.

Kevin, Even with Usmanov taking over our club we'll still be self sufficient, unlike your little club. By the way, are you happy with that bloke taking over as manager, sorry I can't remember his name!!! Haha. Do you not think that he's only installed as Roman's puppet?

Nah, the end was near a few seasons ago. We might not win anything this year, but we'll still be in a comfy position. But eh, will ya? Usmanov clearly doesn't care about what you lot think, neither does Dein, the so loved dein... that's gotta hurt.

I'll be cheering for usmanov to buy the club, just to take the *****, wow what a love for the game you have kev, basically what you're saying is OK my cash broke old hooker of a club opened it's wrinkly old legs and whored it's poon to an unscrupulous Russian, I won't be happy until all clubs are owned the same way and our game is the plaything of the corrupt and morally bankrupt, unlike your lot we are actually trying to fight our ogre, but you just sit there and laugh mate, that says everything to me about your p1ssant excuse of a club and it's pathetic part time supporters. Have a word with yourself.
