Arsenal chairman snubs US buyer 


Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has sent a hands-off warning to American billionaire Stan Kroenke over any potential takeover of the club.


Kroenke recently bought 9.9% of Arsenal and also acquired more shares from major stakeholder Danny Fiszman, sparking talk of a takeover.


But Hill-Wood told the Guardian: "The shareholders would prefer to stay in control than sell out to some stranger.


"We would be horrified to see ownership of the club go across the Atlantic."


Hill-Wood claims that he and three of the club's major shareholders - Fiszman, Lady Nina Bracewell-Smith and the Carr family - have "no intention of selling".


He added: "These people love Arsenal, they are independently wealthy and do not need the money. Having a few extra million pounds in the bank is of no interest to them.


"We're here for Arsenal football club, not to make a few bob. The club has been run for the benefit of supporters, staff and players."

Very funny Vic. Of course there is only one Carr family in the country, and yes one of them plays for us.


Sad what passes for wackiness these days.

Americans in charge of manure has really pulled that club down, hasn't it?


I wish we could be so lucky. Looks like business as usual to me.
