Anything significant about them?... No?
Well - let me inform you. 7th June 2013 Ivan Gazidis and his we have huge financial firepower story. 9th June fresh off the back of his rousing statement we have the fans Q & A session based mainly on his positive spin story a few days earlier.
27th September a rare an uncoincidentally timed story from no other than Stan Kroenke our "majority shareholder" if you live in the UK or, our "owner" if you live in the US.
So, for the last date 17th October? 11.30am to be precise... any thoughts? OK - well it's our AGM date, and after a less than inspiring performance in the last 2 AGM's it appears Kroenke has learned to play the game. Gazidis style. "Get a decent story out in the weeks running up to the AGM Stan, they'll think you know what you're on about, and go easy on you in the AGM". Sadly we're not falling for that one here at the BSM.
We are all too aware of the spin that comes out of that club. OK - we signed 1 world class player, and what a player we hope he turns out to be. But we let 20 odd players leave? Surely that's left us threadbare as a squad?
I'm not going to dwell on the negative as we've had a great start. Ozil being attributed with laying on the goals but we were doing well without him so he can only help our cause this season. I'm loving the football we're playing. I'm loving being proved wrong about Ramsey, I'm loving being proved wrong about Giroud. I'm loving Matthew Flamini, and I would gladly pay the fine he probably got for that yellow vs Spurs. At 29 he's in his peak. He can share that "play breaker" role with Arteta all day long for me.
A tough away game this weekend, but in the run of form we're in, why should we fear? Keep those heads held high, play for the crest on that shirt (although the cannon is arseways) and keep us proud gunners fans smiling.
Come On You Gunners...
