Stan Kroenke’s KSE (Kroenke’s Spiffing Eels) have bought 13 more shares in Arsenal.
That brings their total to 41,596 or 66.85% of the available shares. The question is: what does this mean?
The answer is: nothing. It changes nothing. Except the number of shares that he owns, but beyond that it has no discernible impact on anything.
There had been rumours that the American was going to dress up like Santa and drop shares into crowded places for people to pick up but an Arsenal spokesperson said, “That’s beyond stupid. What are you talking about? Stop calling here. This is your last warning.”
Meanwhile, Alisher Usmanov’s offer to dress up as Santa for the office Christmas party was rejected by officials who were worried he’d repeat his trick of stealing all the mince pies like he did last year.
Instead, they hired former Gunner Vladimir Petrovic who simply refused to interact with players. Lukas Podolski was said to be particularly unhappy when Father Christmas told him he’d be getting nothing for Christmas expect an Aha double-album featuring all their hits like ‘Take on me’, ‘The sun always shines on TV’ and that other one about eagles who fly down into fjords and take small children away to their eyries before fashioning them into hybrid bird children that try and take over the world but are stopped by a conscientious lemur.
We used to have the 12″ extended dance mix picture disc of that but it was stolen one night by a crazed Norwegian who tried to sell it on the black market but ended up shot dead by some Macedonian hit men.
Karma, baby. Karma.
