It’s all very quiet regarding the Arsenal this week. The slow trickle of news and fall-out from Everton has pretty much detrickled itself as everyone else casts their eye on the weekend’s internationals.
After Danny Fiszman selling 1.1% of the club last week, to person or persons unknown at this stage, a lot of people are worried that a takeover bid is imminent and the rapid rise in the price of each Arsenal share (Fiszman received nearly Â£6,000 per share when they were trading at Â£4,500 only six months ago) is doing nothing to dampen the speculation. All we can do is go by the word of the Chairman who, in an exclusive interview on Arsecast 16, said that after all the work getting the new stadium together a takeover bid would be most unwelcome.
Until we know who exactly has bought Danny Fiszman’s shares then people will speculate. Was it you? Did you buy Danny Fiszman’s shares? Call Arseblog in complete confidence!!
Another French youngster has signed. We did report this back in January but the Telegraph says we’ve secured the signature of Gilles Sunu, a striking prodigy, who we hope is more Henry than Aliadiere. No doubt when things get rocky again people will say “Oh, well we’ve got Sunu. He’s supposed to be, like, completely awesome and stuff and even though he’s just 6 year olds he’s the answer to all our problems.”
That aside not much happening so it’s on with the Arsecast we go.
This week’s Arsecast, sponsored as always by Savile-Rogue.com, features a blogchat with the Man from East Lower in which we discuss our misfiring strikers and midfied, discuss William Gallas and some other stuff too. The Man in the Bar has another player history, Arsene Wenger Hawkins is there, based on your suggestions we tell new Arsenal fan Jeff why he should hate Sp*rs and there’s some other waffle in there too.
Because there’s no match there’s no bet of the week from BlueSq.com – but that doesn’t mean you can’t open an account and bet on camel racing or something.
And of course there’s the winner of the two Savile Rogue scarves for the best contributions to this week’s Arsecast. Remember, if you want to email or leave a voicemail for the show you can find all the contact info here.
Ok, that is entirely that and I need some breakfast and some painkillers due to over-exposure to Guinness last night.
