Yesterday we heard the news that Lady Nina has decided to sell her shares in our club, she owns 15.9 of them. Stan the Man owns 29.98 shares and the Big Man from Russia owns 26.29. Even someone like me, who can’t add up for love nor money knows that if either of the two boys buy the shares they will have to make a takeover bid. (yesterday I added 90 + 30 = 150….. 🙂 )
It’s suggested she wants her shares sold by the end of May!
For me, that’s where it ends, I don’t know enough to discuss the issue over shares, all I know is, it will be a very sad day when Arsenal no longer belongs to Arsenal and our club just becomes a ‘Boy’s Toy’…..
Putting thats aside, the future looks quite bright with all the up and coming young players. Over the last few days/weeks we have talked about who should go, who we should buy, but what about those players in the youth/reserves?
Just who will Arsene Wenger think about before making any of the much needed experienced signings…
These are the Reserve/Youth Players currently at Arsenal – according to afc.com
Who out of that lot is ready to step up next year then? Is there a player that Arsene Wenger will truly believe to be ready for the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League?
Is there one, two or maybe even three players that he can honestly say will be good enough to make the move into the first team?
One thing for sure is, unless its another Cesc, Henry or TV in the making, we don’t need to buy any more young players. If we buy, we need players who have 3/4 seasons left at their peak.
I think there are a fair few from that crop that we will one day be watching play in our first team….
Any stand out for you? Do we actually know enough about them to comment?
I know a few are too young to be considered, but it goes back to that ‘If you’re good enough, you’re old enough’, Shrek is living proof of that!!
Just a little distraction from tommorrows game….
