Why tho?None of know either's intentions...Hill-Wood just doesnt want Dein in any control cos Dein would force him out the club like Hill-Wood did to him.

Part comes down to this west vs east business, people who rather side with a Yank than an Uzbek.The same guy supports Man Utd.

April 2007"Why don't we want the American at our club? Call me old-fashioned, but we don't need his money and we don't want his sort. Our objective is keep Arsenal English." October 2009"It does look like he is edging towards a takeover, which I would welcome. I have not asked him if that is what he plans to do, but I am very relaxed about it. If it was to happen, I don't think you can expect any big changes because he seems to like things very much the way they are."peter hill wood<<___

Hill-wood is an old fashioned c*nt. Thought Kronke originally was an Abramovich type of character, then realised he had some pedigree in developing sports franchises and has changed his tune. And to be honest since the invincibles Arsenal hasn't pushed on as much as a global brand as we could of done.Although i'd like us to still be owned by British shareholders Kronke is the lesser of two evils and seems happy to develop the club without being silly with money.

No he orginially saw Kroenke as the c*nt that was gonna get Dein his golden ticket back into the club, then when he saw that Dein had then found Usmanov, he sat with kroenke and made him his new best buddy.

I find it weird that when asked yesterday at the AGM, Kroneke gave no comment at all despite being asked, and from Hill-Woods comments they dont seem the pals I thought, which amazes me why he has painted this getalong gang picture, which has made fans pro-Kroneke.

What makes you say that. Sounded like PHW helped Kronke dodge a very difficult question. As PHW has said in the past he now welcomed Kronke onto the board and how his ambitions match Arsenal's (long term sustainability, no drastic changes in the running of the club etc)

It was a question that didnt need dodging...Infact if you want to dodge it, dont turn up or send some to represent you, like Usmanov did...I just found it weird that he's there, not answering questions directed at him, then maybe I'm reading too much into it but when Hill-Wood was speaking for him, his body lanugage didnt suggest he was agreeing with what was being said. Which is fair enough cos Hill-Wood is a a**hole.Something isn't right there still at boardroom level.Wenger and Gazidas spoke well, and both seem to be above whats going on above them and get on with what matters, football and progressing.

Stan Kroenke has purchased another 10 shares in Arsenal's parent holding company, at a cost of some £85,000, to edge closer towards the takeover threshold. The Denver-based sports magnate now controls a stake of some 28.9%, which includes a £765,000 purchase earlier this month.Should Kroenke, or indeed anyone else, such as second-largest shareholder Alisher Usmanov, reach a figure of 29.9%, they would, under the City's financial regulations, be obliged to launch a formal takeover bid.However, when the matter of his intentions for the Premier League club was raised during last week's annual general meeting at Emirates Stadium, the American – nicknamed 'Silent Stan' – chose not to take the opportunity to address the gathered shareholders, with chairman Peter Hill-Wood intervening.Any public statements against future bid intentions must be unambiguous, otherwise the individual or group would, under the Takeover Panel's rule 2.8, be prevented from making a formal move for six months.The latest share dealings were confirmed to the Plus market. "On 26 October 2009, Arsenal Holdings plc (the 'Company') received notification that on 26 October 2009 Stan Kroenke, a director of the company, acquired 10 ordinary shares of £1.00 each in the company at a price of £8,500 per share," a statement read."Taking into account such acquisition, Stan Kroenke has a beneficial interest in, and controls voting rights over, 17,967 ordinary shares in the company, representing 28.9% of the company's issued ordinary shares."http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2009/oc...-arsenal-shares

Well 1% then he has to make a take over bid, that take over can be rejected by the share holders.
