Thierry Henry tells Kroenke that he needs to listen to Arsenal takeover approach

You can’t get a bigger Arsenal legend than Thierry Henry, and Gooners are usually keen to hear his opinion on the goings-on at the Emirates, so it can only help Daniel Ek’s bid to take over the Gunners when he has the support of the King of Highbury.

Henry has now told us that he has spoken to Ek, and he is very serious about the takeover, and he says all it needs now is for the Kroenkes to listen to his proposal to begin negotiations.”He (Ek) already reached out (to the Kroenke family) and said himself that he had collected the funds to make sure that he can put in a good bid,” Henry told Sky Sports.

“They now need to listen. A lot of people have been screaming that they want the owner out. We are trying to offer a solution involving the fans and getting the DNA of the club back.

“One thing that I want to reiterate is that Daniel will not move away, he will be there waiting to see if they want to sell.

“That is going to take a very long time, we know what we want to do, but first and foremost we need to make sure that we can take over, if they are listening.”

So now all Arsenal fans simply have to wait to see if Kroenke makes any new response to Ek’s overtures, but we can not be optimitic at this point.

But we still have hope…

    Why would Kroenke care what Henry says…he doesn’t care at all!

    On another note, Leno to leave?

    Kroenke does not want to lose money. He ‘stinks of it’. The smell of money is the smell of his ass. There is now a review of football at government level. Kroenke the ‘hero’, who wanted to start the ‘murder animals’, hunting channel…….will run faster than Usain Bolt if he thought he was to lose money. My guess he will sell/run so as not to risk losing big money. Be patient. All things change. A Raven now sits on Kroenke’s shoulder. Bad times for Kroenke.

      Keep deceiving yourself, every billionaires has gone through a phrase of losing money on their investment but keep pushing with hope of it crowning back.
      Kroenke has lost money on his different clubs he owns but since he was a man who never sell his investments, he kept pushing and now his clubs value has risen up. So what makes you think he won’t keep pushing till he got better.

      I’m only happy with this protest(not that I believe he will sell anyway) because he might decide to change management and go deep in recruiting a better management and players to compete for Top 4 and then EPL to appease the fan.
      Do you think fans won’t forget about this protest when they see we are competing for Top 4 and then the league. It will be forgotten in no time.

      But I’m still of the opinion of fans owing 51% (even 60% if possible) of the club

        You know this do you, that Kroenke won’t sell? It’s the long game. Not headline news tomorrow. Of course….every supporter would like supporters to own 51% of the club. You say the obvious. Are you a fan or a real supporter?

        1. Bobs says:

          You can’t just be a fan of a club who never win the League for 17years and no European trophy.
          You can only be a real supporter for sticking with the same club for years even when they fail.

          So your point exactly?

    I don’t know about anyone, but I don’t trust Henry on this issue, my mind tells me he has a motive on EK buying this club and not because he want Arsenal DNA.

    Pep and Zidane took the chance to coach Barca and Madrid youth team and they got promoted to the first team but Henry rejected Arsenal offer to manage Arsenal’s youth team because of the salary sky sport is offering him.
    If that don’t show a sign of someone who is after money first than anything, then I don’t know.

    And about EK.
    EK is just like Kroenke 2.0. You can’t understand except if you’re a musician. He’s not a good man as people think.
    But what people fail to understand is that, no matter who the billionaire is, either he loves the club or not, he will still sign the ESL contract. EK was only lucky cos he doesn’t own Arsenal when that situation arise. Many billionaires critizing them now are all liars cos they will do the same if they are in the same situation.
    The most dangerous criminal can call a petty criminal criminal until he himself is caught in the act.

    Don’t tell me Abramovich did not love Chelsea or never have passion for the game before he sign the contract.
    Tottenham is owned by the British but yet they too signed the contract.

    To me, I prefer to stick with Kroenke that I know than an incoming owner who came in because of we fans and later regret supporting him to buy the club. Who do we turn to after he prove worse than Kroenke?

    If there is a way fans can own 51% of the club and then give out the remaining 49% to a billionaire, then that is a very good thing.
    The government should do everything possible to make it happen cos changing from one billionaire to another is not the solution.

    Liverpool changed billionaire through protest, are they not doing the same now?
    Nothing is gonna change with billionaires except using Bayern’s system.
