Silent Stan, Not So Silent

Silent Stan, Not So Silent

Silent Stan Kroenke has suggested that he would be in favour of joining the current Arsenal board in their 5 year lockdown plan, but wouldn't rule out making a takeover bid in the future.

In a rare public interview with SkySports, the American tycoon makes it clear that he is in it for the long haul and is interested in forming good relationships with the board.

'I have known about Arsenal previously. We got involved in Major League Soccer in Colorado,' he said on Sky Sports News. Our executives started developing a relationship which we felt we needed with European football.'

'Through that process we got to know Arsenal in a different way, and so that is how we became as familiar as we are and eventually made the investment. It is a partnership at this point. Everybody has a tendency to speed up the process. These things take a lot of time and effort, and many years to develop.'

'We tend to look in the long-term; I think if you're an investor and don't look in the long-term you are not a good investor. There are lots of owners in Arsenal so we would have to see how that (a takeover) would work.'

When questioned about the boards current lockdown agreement, Not-so Silent Stan said

'I support it. We'll see, they would have to invite me,'

'This is a strategic investment for us, we are long-term investors. We like the team, otherwise we would not have got involved.'

If he is in it for the long term then that's good enough. Multiple ownership looks to be the pattern for the next few years which means that the club should be run in the sole interests of the club itself.

I think the thought of having that horrible greaseball in charge has made everyone feel Silent Stan isn't such a bad option.

true rocky, his statements about long-term partnerships, being invited to the board etc are in stark contrast to the crap usmanov his throwing around.

by a mile i'd rather have the club as it is, but if we had to be taken over, kroenke doesn't seem too bad.

i really hate to say it, but out of all the managers in the world the one who i really didnt want to join spurs is ramos. The only problem is that he likes to play a version of Wengerball and no spurs players can do that. He'll either have to change things completely or he will fail. let's hope the latter.
