    Maybe he figures Kroenke is likely to throw some money at them now he has overall control, which would increase the value of the remaining shares.

    Ah yes, the "Uzbek billionaire". Lovely fella, I'm sure.

    I'd have thought dodgy billionaires were right up your street, what with Unky Joe Lewis and all....

    The average annual income in Uzbekistan is £2,000 pa.

    This mixed with "don't forgot I have a shit load of cash to spend"

    As against all those other countries where billionaires are much more in line with average earnings?

    The contrast was with Joe Lewis, who didn't become a billionaire in a country where the average income is £40 a week.

    An important distinction.

    nope, he just fucked the entire planet over by currency speculation and then by tax exile.
    Do you really think I'm gonna love one billionaire more than another? How bizarre

    No, he helped Soros fuck Lamont and John Major. Currency speculation 1990s style.

    'How bizarre' - I remember that record.

    The contrast with Joe Lewis is that Usmanov isnt the owner of Arsenal, Kronke is.

    Hello, the Brains Trust has arrived. Ownership is about as significant to my point as the colour of his socks.

    yeah but the point itself was a dud one. usmanov has zero say in the running of our club.

    I really hope he leaves... well sick of this bloody soap.

    How do ya think us gooners feel? hope we invest the fee into strengthening the team.

    Stupid? As for re-investing the fee - how many 18 y.o. French-Ghanaian lightweight attacking CMs will one Fab buy?

    I'm more worried about Nasri going than Fab, tbh. Wilshere, ramsey AND Nasri could each replace fab

    Dunno why we're still interested....I know he's 7 years younger than Xavi and so it makes sense and could take some of the pressure off. But we need defensive cover as Busquets and Mascherano can't keep covering for Maxwell or Puyol.

    kained&able Here for the football.

    if i was man city/ac milan/someone massive i would be preparing a bid for xavi and drop it in the second the fab deal gets done.

    There is no way in hell iniesta/xavi/fabegas can play in the same midfield, surely.

    wel exactly...it's a headline signing with a view to replacing Xavi who's been more injury prone. Unless we go mental and drop Busquets

    or chuck iniesta as leftfoward and drop pedro i guess.

    Both seem like silly ideas though.
