Arsenal fans are having a moment while common people are pressing home home their power against greedy owners.
A dream team of legends is backing a takeover by a billionaire supporter. And it’s making me tingle all over.
Iconic manager Arsene Wenger has joined arguably the greatest trio of players in the club’s history and music-streaming platform Spotify CEO Daniel Ek in a bid to buy the club from Stan Kroenke.
With Dennis Bergkamp, Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira on board, it's like a wet dream.
Can you imagine what that would be like? All football men taking charge of the club from basically the top down.
I’d reckon Wenger having a say on the board on football matters, while also using his economics background to forecast the future.
With Ek’s fortune and expanding tech empire, money wouldn't be a saak.
Wenger’s eye for talent and the pulling power of the charismatic Henry can land the best players.
Vieira’s presence would keep the talent disciplined and competitive, while the cool creativity of Bergkamp can help the players improve on the training pitch.
It’s all the ingredients to shoot Arsenal straight back to the top of the game.
And the Gunners would be way ahead of the curve.
With the current climate in football turning towards fandom, Ek has promised to give fans a “Golden Share” in board decisions, empowering them to veto the executive.
That would be amazing and turn the club into shining light in the game. I'd freaking smaak it stukkend.
But it’s probably just a pipe dream.
Kroenke took over the London landmark when it was the most profitable club in the game. And the American won’t let go.
Ek this week said he has the funds to make the deal happen.
And me and every Gunner I know wants this to happen.
I hear you say, but you're still in bed with a greedy billionaire.
But he is a Gunner, just like me, with dreams of seeing the red and white wipe the floor with the rest of the Prem and Europe.
And even if you’re not a Gunner, you’d want this too.
Because your club could follow suit and have your passion run through every fibre of the club.
Let’s hope it happens.
