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.
