Arsenal Won't Follow Liverpool

Arsenal Won't Follow Liverpool

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.

Good to hear! But someone from the Arsenal board should really clarify just to set the fans hearts at ease. At the moment no one really know wether Danny Fitzman will sell his share or not, plus ITV.

I'm glad this current rumour has been dismissed, but I don't think it will be too long before another appears.

I am quiet uneasy about who is mysteriously buying the clubs shares.

The shares are unlisted .. Your in the same boat as spurs when the evil Scholar showed up!! Thats all you need to know.. Shares in private ownership are governed by the laws or rules of the privately held company.. But the shareholders can vote to change the rules. IE Your safe unless someone who has a better than 51% stake wants to sell

I hate the fact that people come into clubs and run them as businesses instead of football clubs. Some people may argue that a football club is a business but the football should always be the main concern!
