Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has made up with Kroenke apparently and has been saying that now he would like investment from the American. He told the Daily Star "I think he would be a good addition. He seems to have been very sensible. "I think he would be quite happy to buy more shares but I think he has absolutely no intention of buying the whole thing."
Now Kroeneke seems an alright guy to be honest hes not in the mold of the Glazers or even worse David Deins best chum Usmanov. But unlike a fair few other Arsenal fans who seem to be delighted by this news because they want us to become crazy money spending heartless teams such as United and Chelsea i'm not that keen on it at all.
The only good thing out of Hill-Wood's quotes i can take is that he thinks Kroenke "has absolutly no intention of buying the whole thing". Im proud of Arsenal and i'm proud of the board. We have become a finacially stable club who could never do a Leeds. We're an English owned club a dyeing thing in the top flight of English football and watching cold war champs league final and title run ins fills me with heartache becuase Arsenal weren't init and also anger because these two teams may have a couple more technically crap English players in their side but why they our continued to be viewed as more English then the only English owned and run team which highlights the anti-Arsenal stance the media has.
If one of kroenke or usmanov was going to buy the whole club then i would go for the obviously sport loving American but still i would be disappointed as some of the heart in the club will be lost. People critisize Hill-Wood saying hes outdated with the way hes goes about things with his "things we're different back in my day" view of things. But a lot of what he says is right take this quote on agents and wages:
"Nowadays, a lot of people sign four-year contracts and you heave a sigh of relief. Six months later they come marching in saying they want double the wages.
"The only answer is to tell them they are on that contract and that's it. Unless you do that, the game will become chaotic and descend into anarchy.
"I think there are very few people who have really got the tradition of the club at heart. You can name them on one hand. Actually I can't name them on one hand and that's a great pity."
Who can argue with that hes spot on and highlights a love for a club only a chairman who has aged with the club could have. Man United and Chelsea's massive debt could get called in at anytime which leave them in a whole heap of trouble. Our debts becuase of the stadiaum our just like a mortage on a house and without spending tons and getting ourselves in an unstable downright dangerous finacial situation we have still been able to keep pace with biggest boys in world football and with a bit more luck this season we could of been celebrating and English team winning the league and champs league though the media wouldn;t of seen it quite like that.
In another news I saw the Spain national squad being greeted by traditional Austrian dancers on sky sports news drunkenly late last night and Fabregas and Puyol we're having a bit too much of a nice joke and chit chat for my liking tut tut. Aslong as the joke was about how Puyol is leaving Barca in a swap deal for Eboue and was actually going to happen then i'm not laughing boys.
