Due to popular demand in another thread, I am putting up an entire heading for you all to discuss what you think of the supposed impending ownership takeover of Arsenal Football Club. My feelings are well known and pretty vanilla. Basically, I think that even if we get to one person having 30% of the shares their attempted forced takeover (irregardless who it is) will fail. Just because they have to make a bid doesn’t mean that others have to sell. As for which of the two main candidates I’d rather have as owner, I’m going to say as clear as possible that I like the current ownership and board just the way it is.
However, there seem to be quite a large number of my regular readers who want to debate the finer points of Usmanov v. Kroenke or whether the takeover will happen and that’s fine, have at it.
As for the new tee shirts, the winner of the slogan contest was Cesc’s Mullett with “We score more before 9am than you will day.” I have modified it a bit to say “your team” but it’s still the winning concept. Congrats and thanks for the submission!
Tee shirts will be printed on white, 100% cotton, American Apparel shirts and will retail for $20 shipped to the USA and $25 shipped worldwide. Please send an email to 7amkickoff AT gmail DOT com with your size and quantity if you want to pre-order a shirt.
