So, this Arsenal Beveren thing: a big deal or a fart in a storm?

I’m sure there are more details to come, but so long as it cannot be proved that Arsenal had a controlling interest in the club, which they insist they have never had, then I can’t see how they’ve done too much wrong – in the eyes of the law at least. As reporter David Bond pointed out in today’s Telegraph, “Although Uefa have rules which prevent any club owners from owning more than 50 per cent in another club playing in the same competition, there are no FA, Fifa or Uefa rules which stop one club or club official lending money to another club or their directors”.

Still, it means a very quiet few weeks have drawn to a close.


Arsenal since about 1979. Thick, thin and all that.
