It seems that Kroenke Tonk Stan’s (KTS) increased stake in the club has been confirmed and for me it is a good thing. It helps keep Usmanov at bay and it may, hopefully, result in some extra transfer funds being made available for the boss as I am sure that KTS won’t want to see his investment’s value drop so soon after making such a sizeable investment.
Elsewhere, current and former players are pointing out our problem areas and how they should be addressed. There is nothing really new in them and it is nothing that hasn’t been covered on this and other Arsenal blogs before. If you are interested in them Petit talks here, Silvestre here, Van Persie here. Van Persie tells ATVO that he feels sorry for the Arsenal fans and let me just assure him that we feel sorry for ourselves too.
Apparently Eduardo will be fit in about two weeks time. That’s great news, just in time for him to head off on his summer holidays…
Some Russian is being linked with Arsenal but I wouldn’t pay too much attention to it as it is probably just some lazy journalism.
Our own little Commie is a bit perplexed to be employed as a left winger, but with his goal return and performances so far I think he should be happy enough with the results of his role in the team.
That’s about it for today. Time is short and so is reportable news.
UPDATE: A bit of a dilemma for me here, it seems that Patsy Palmer has promised to depart ANR should Arshavin leave the club. Now, I think Arshavin is a top class player that undoubtedly improves our squad. But, the thoughts of never having to read/hear Patsy’s opinions again makes it a very difficult thing to decide over… Let’s hope that Arshavin going away on summer holidays counts.
Talk to you again.
