    Do you fear for our national game if it is the plaything of foreign billionaires?

    I feel he must be leaving because the board has been seduced to sell their shares.

    But maybe I'm putting 2 + 2 to get 5.

    Try the other way around fella

    Meanig Dein want's too sell, the other board members want too keep onto their shares/ Arsenal values.

    I have to be careful of what i say on the subject, seeinf i'm LFC, but i have too admire the Boards decision too let an influential member leave like they have.

    Too clarify my position,

    I wished Moores and Parry had the foresight (before UTD) to make the most of LFC's success on the field.
    We were at one point the most recognisable team on the planet.
    But we got left behind on the pitch and in terms of marketing.
    Once The prem got recognised, we we're too far behind financially too compete with UTD.

    They kept expenading Old Trafford, and we couldn't expand Anfield.
    It came too a sad point, we're we had to "sell out" to stay competetive with the top 3, especially after Chelsea got their sugadaddy...

    A sad state, but thats football...

    If you are right it is a massive risk.
    Dein and Wenger have always been close, I'm sure this one has a long way to run.

    Too true,

    Have a look at the reaction of Arsenal fans on Beeb 606 forums.

    They are of the inclanation that Dein left because he opposed the take ove.

    A bright few Gooners undestand the real implications of his resignatin.

    Truely, i never thought Dein to put money over his beloved club, and his relationship with Wenger, but it seems that way..........

    I cannpt imagine Le'Arse without Wenger, and it will be a great loss to the prem if he goes (yes more so than Moanrinho)

    You mean that with foreign bosses, Arsenal might become a team of foreigners with a foriegn manager.

    It will never happen.

    So what if the teams are owned by foreigners?!?!?!?!?!?!

    Football is not the parliament, for crying out loud. It is a business
    and as long as people receive the entertainment football is supposed
    to provide, if the Vatican or Muhamar Gadaffi own the teams who
    cares a rat's behind, my dear sons.

    The big problem with football nowadays is that fills the gap of family,
    faith, or the need to belong in many youngsters, converting it into
    a fertile soil for hooliganism.

    Go in peace.

    God bless you.
