It's internationals week, news is scarce, people are being bored within inches of their lives by mundane, dull and boring football. Time for lazy hacks to fabricate some news.
After Danny Fiszman sold a percentage of his shares, rumblings began occurring here there and everywhere, Gooners began to worry that the club would be sold to the highest bidder.
A few weeks later and share prices rocket amidst rumours that Arsenal football club is up for sale.
With Arsenal's footballing partnership with the Colarado Rapids recently being cemented, the inevitable rumours of the Rapids owner (and Billionaire to boot) Stan Kroenke wanting to buy Arsenal (or at least a stake in the club) have surfaced.
However Mr Kroenke's company have moved swiftly to rubbish these rumours, setting Arsenal hearts at ease, at least for the time being.
Jurgen Mainka, senior director of communications and international business at Colorado Rapids, said: 'At this point, there is no interest or intention from KSE in buying any shares or any pieces of Arsenal Football Club or any club in the English Premier League.'
'There certainly is no substance to these stories and rumours in the media which indeed started when we first announced our commercial relationship with Arsenal Football Club.'
Arsenal Football Club is currently valued at around £700 million (a bit more than the quid Ken Bates paid for Chelsea eh?) and as such would take an Abramovich size bank account to prize the club from the hands of the current owners.
And I for one hope it never happens.
