Arsenal Supporters Trust

"Stan Kroenke's move to take complete control of Arsenal "marks a dreadful day" for the Gunners, according to the Arsenal Supporters' Trust (AST).

Kroenke Sports and Entertainment (KSE) informed the London Stock Exchange on Tuesday that it has moved forward with plans to buy Alisher Usmanov's 30 per cent stake in Arsenal, a deal that values the club at £1.8billion.

KSE already owned 67 per cent of Arsenal and now stand to be in complete control, with Kroenke of the belief that taking the club private will help them strategically in the long run.

But the AST is unconvinced and said in a statement: "This news marks a dreadful day for Arsenal Football Club.

"Stan Kroenke taking the club private will see the end of supporters owning shares in Arsenal and their role upholding custodianship values.

"By taking the club private, Stan Kroenke will be able to implement the following detrimental actions: pay management fees and dividends without any check or balance, no Annual General Meeting (AGM) to hold the board to account, remove the independent directors, place debt onto Arsenal to support his other business interests.

"The AST is also extremely concerned to note that this purchase is being funded by a loan.

"The most dreadful part of this announcement is the news that Kroenke plans to forcibly purchase the shares held by Arsenal fans.

"Many of these fans are AST members and hold their shares not for value but as custodians who care for the future of the club.

"The AST is wholly against this takeover. Arsenal remains too important to be owned by any one person.""

They think they've got problems...
Did I just hear right?

Anybody else catch that on the news this morning?- Gareth Southgate saying Ingerlund were in the toughest group of all?!!

Against the mighty Tunisia and the even mightier Panama!?
Plenty of confidence in the camp then!
Why the silence?
at 17:50 15 May 2018

So when we get Muslim atrocities, we get plenty of Muslim community leaders condemning the actions.

Why is the silence deafening from Jewish community leaders in Britain?
Is this because of some fear of retaliation from Mossad?
Or are they in favour of Netanyahu's government's actions?
You know you get the urge to.............
at 13:36 15 May 2018 something just because it's there?

Anyway, I lost my job as a gynaecologist today.
IF we stay up, will it be worth it?
at 09:56 7 May 2018

Another season of 3 managers, woeful recruitment, in a league where we only dream of being top half let alone winning. no long term plan, cannon-fodder to most of the rest of the league.

After all, staying up means the Yanks and our "DoF" are doing something right, right?

Anyone know what this Kaplan/Levien/Morgan thing is all about?
at 11:23 5 Jan 2018

Presumably Stu Mac is aware and should be explaining to the Trust members what's going on?

....connections to the Trust?
If not, I'm sure we were taking advice from some legal eagle connected to the Trust.

IAnyway, whoever it is, isn't he the vguy we shpould be asking about the legitimacy of some Trust board positions?

And if some Board members who were instrumental in getting an "accept the deal" done whilst possibly not being legitimate members of the Board, shouldn't he be the one advising the Trust membership as to what the legalities of all this mean?

Does anyone have an email address/name/contact details please?

5 at the back at home for winnable games against the likes of Watford and Newcastle.

No ambition to play attractive football - no width, the diamond is the preferred option. Forced into different tactics, against his nature, by fan pressure.

Won't play Mesa, ffs. Yes he made a mistake against Watford, but who doesn't make mistakes? And when he came on, he took the game by the scruff. Far too exiting for PC. This is his biggest sin for me.

Perfectly content to finish 17th. And if this is the sum of your anbition for the Swans - just to stay in the pig's trough, irrespective of the style of football you choose to get you there - then join HJ and the Yanks.

You may say that he can only do so much with the players he's got, but he said nowt against the Board's choices during the close season. Either he's happy with what we brought in, or he should say different, or he should walk if he has principles. Could you see Pulis or Sparky just putting up with what they get given?
His safety-first tactics are abysmal. Where's the fun, skill and entertainment?

And don't be clouded by out win against Huddersfield - if we'd played an anywhere near decent football team, we'd have struggled to even draw. In fact Huddersfield were on top until their goalie gifted us a goal.

Rant over. Tin hat on.

Population 330,000. About the size of Carfiff.

They qualified last night. Gylfi scored.

Never mind. He's a shit player who brought down the playing standards at our club and we're better off without him.

According to those who know their football, like.

Trust Membership Figures
at 10:51 24 Aug 2017

Anyone know what the Trust membership figures are before August 1st and after?

Be interesting to see how many have not renewed after the vote to accept the Yanks' offer.
Is any mod ever going to explain...................
at 07:55 21 Aug 2017

why Swansnews' tedious threads are always stickied?

I know you're all following orders, buit what's the reason for it?

If the threads are any good, they'll stay at the top anyway. However, Swansnews has a 100% record of being totally shite.

Mods - somebody care to explain why a thread was removed?
at 19:58 20 Aug 2017

Hello the Trust
at 11:13 19 Jul 2017

I sent you the following question last week, and although you say you'll repond within 48 hrs, I'm still waiting.

So I'll try to get your attention on here -

The candidates for election to the Trust board - how do I find out what their ttitude are to the deal/litigate situation?
I don'r care if they speak Welsh, are MDs of companies or have supporteed the Swans since they were foetuses. But I do want to know what their attitude to our owners is.

Surely in any other type of election we'd have some concept of what candidates stood for. How can I vote for someone when I know feck all about their attitude to the club?

The North Stand and the Trust

Hello the Trust.

I understand that this point was raised a while ago, but I was wondering if the Trust were interested in bringing the following up with our owners -

Why do away fans get prime position behind the goals? This hardly happens with other PL clubs. THey're usually shoved into some corner somewhere.

How can I ask the Trust if they/we can bring up this topic at the next Trust members meeting? Do the Trust board have any views on the matter? Would our owners be amenable to home fans being given prime position over away fans?

I would ask via the Trust website, but then it would be just me asking and the Trust replying to just me. So because you chose not to have a forum on the Trust website, I have to come on PS as the only way of including fellow Jacks in the discussion (or am I being punished for not doing FB?)

If only Coach Bob hadn't been tempted
at 10:52 19 May 2017 be promoted out of his depth.

He'd have been promoted to L1, mainly cos he knows that to pass a ball, it's best to use your instep. Warra feckin div.
