Kronke Increases Stake In Arsenal

Stan Kroenke has increased his stake in Arsenal to 28.9% by purchasing 90 more shares, according to reports today.  That takes him closer to the 29.9% amount that would trigger a formal takeover offer for the remainder of the club. According to reports from The Guardian and Sky Sports News, Kroenke purchased the shares at a price of £8,500 each.

He purchased 80 shares two weeks ago and he now owns 17,957 in total, a figure which has doubled in the last year or so. The American tycoon, who also owns the NBA’s Denver Nuggets, has been gradually increasing his stake in the football club this year.

Rocker Suicide Hoax On Twitter

Last night, when I was on Twitter, a romour was floating around about Sum 41 singer/guitarist Deryck Whibley. The rumour was that he had committed suicide!

A few tweets and google searches later the 5 or 6 people in my contact list who were concerned and I were convinced that it was just a stupid hoax and that the guy who started the rumour has deleted his original tweet on the subject.

What is true is that Whibley and Avril Lavigne have filed for divorce after announcing a formal seperation last month. The often abused term “irreconcilable differences”was stated in court paperwork, what ever the fuck that means.

I lost interest in Avril Lavigne as a singer the moment she started pallying around with the Hollywood sluts like Paris Hilton. She lost all substance and her 3rd album is a pile of junk. The couple was doomed from the start and Avril seems to be mired in the wastage of the rich, famous & young lifestyle in California.
