Please go and sign this petition.

Just a quick one today. Go to this site and sign the petition.

I know it's unclear how effective these things are, but over a 1,000 people have signed this one already; quite clearly, it's better than nothing.

The debt-laden takeovers of English clubs, by foreign owners with questionable backrounds, must stop. If the FA can't/won't do anything about it, then the government has to. I know that the UK has turned into a tax-haven for the mega-rich, thanks to the efforts of Thatcher and her successors, but to stand by and watch our national game be sold off in this manner needs to end.

And if you don't believe me, take Arsene's word for it. Honestly, every day I find a new way to admire this man.

I'm not a British citizen nor an Arsenal fan, but you are absolutely correct and it's not necessarily limited to foreigners wanting a stake in the Premiership money machine, but shady characters in general. Arsenal seem to be the last big obstacle before these money-grubbing tyrants take complete control. They are ruining the game, but no one seems to care. I even read a post from a so-called Arsenal fan from a rather influential blog that basically ridiculed Wenger. What do you expect from an idiot, brain-washed American though?
