Thoughts On An Alleged Takeover.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 “I Want Arsenal” said great big bold headlines
As another club comes up for sale
Whilst real football fans ponder quite worrying times
Where our icons are sold off wholesale.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Two Russians could own clubs in London
With two Yankee owned clubs in the north
Will the wags in the cheap plastic seats we sit on
Look forward to match day cold wars?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 As a bastion of working class history
Flirts with an oligarchs wealth
There is trouble afoot at The Emirates
As board level tension develops.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 A true red a prominent feature
One from the communist bloc
Has been busily buying up David Dein’s shares
So now holds a lump of red stock.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Will blinis replace the old hot dog
Will vodka be taken like bovril
Will the borscht at halftime be piping and hot
To remind the new owners of Moscow?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Will that Terry Henry fella soon be bought back
To once again grace the green turf
Or will Shevchenko be joining from Chelsea
Resplendent in a red and white shirt?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Are our clubs about to fall in to hands
Where dubious money is king
Will the fans who cheer loudly up high in the stands
Not really care, as long as their team keeps on winning?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Will fur hats be welcome this winter
At games down the Holloway road
Will new contracts being signed by Arsene Wenger
Include the use of a dacha near Moscow?

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 As the gooners fans look to a future
Under an ownership that really is red
Will the powers that be look to refuse,
Some of those with whom our club directors
Wish to jump in to bed?



I know, I know as a Chelski fan. I should be the last one to talk but the way that this alleged takeoever is going is very worrying to say the least.

We were skint and going out of business when Roman I’m loaded came in to save our souls.

Whats the reason at the Emirates? Power, money, Putin the Russian president is close mates with Roman stinking rich and Alisher loads of dosh stalking the Arsenal, and could be using the move to restore diplomatic relations with England after expelling our diplomats from Russia over the assinations here in London.

What next? Blokes from the KGB running round the Emirates with guns trying to sell you a programme?

There’s a joke there somewhere.

The plot thickens or what?

Get the mystery writers on it.
