‘Better than ever’: UK’s richest own one third of country’s wealth: The Sunday Times Rich List shows that the United Kingdom’s richest are richer than ever before, which is in sharp contrast with many ordinary Britons who are struggling after five years of austerity. “I’ve never seen such a phenomenal rise in personal wealth as the growth in the fortunes of Britain’s 1,000 richest people over the past year,” said Philip Beresford, who has compiled the list since 1989. "The richest people in Britain have never had it so good," he told Reuters. "The challenge now for the government and the rich themselves is to see this wealth percolate downwards and outwards, out of London and towards the North and West of the country."

Russian Social Network under Government’s Control President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, seems to having taken control of the most popular social network in the country to ensure that he is able to effectively monitor Ukrainian protests. The founder of the Russian Vkontakte (InTouch), Pavel Durov, had previously announced he was leaving the company but said he had withdrawn his resignation just to find allies of Putin sitting in his desk. Pavel Durov, 29, was reported in press as saying he had previously refused requests from the local government to censor publications on his website. Pavel, who has been forced to quit the company, confirmed that now Vkontakte goes under the complete control of two people: Igor Sechin and Alisher Usmanov (both of them are connected to President). Perhaps, in the Russian context, this situation was inevitable, and Pavel admitted being happy they managed to last seven and a half years. The creator of the website claims they have done a lot, and part of what has been done ca ...

According to Russia's central bank, total foreign debt stood at $732 billion at the end of 2013, up by nearly $200 billion over two years -- and $160 billion of that was new borrowing by Russian businesses and banks. Just this week, mining giant Metalloinvest said it had arranged an export financing facility worth $1.15 billion with a group of banks including the three biggest names in France, Deutsche Bank (DB), UniCredit (UNCFF) of Italy, ING (IDG) of the Netherlands, as well as Credit Suisse (CS) and Japan's Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi.

Britain's richest man and Arsenal shareholder Alisher Usmanov has defended the foreign ownership of Premier League clubs, saying it's good for the English game. The billionaire said the growing influence of overseas shareholders was not stripping the sport of its identity in England. And while he praised Arsenal's impressive start to the Premier League season, he said he reserved the right to criticise the club's board if he felt they weren't getting things right. The Russian, who has a fortune of more than £13bn, has spent more than £200m over the last six years, building a 30% stake in the Gunners. He has been involved in an uneasy stand-off with the club's American majority shareholder Stan Kroenke, accusing him and chief executive Ivan Gazidis of failing to invest sufficient money in Arsene Wenger's team despite significant reserves of cash.

Alisher Usmanov, the UK's richest man, owns 29.99% of the stakes at Arsenal, has on previous occasions publicly criticized Arsenal's management and has credited them for an eight seasons trophy-drought. His criticism in particular targeted the London club's major share-holder, Stan Kroenke, former chairman Peter Hill-Wood and Chief Executive, Ivan Gazidis. However, the Uzbek billionare believes Arsene Wenger to be a world-class coach and has backed the Frenchman to continue at Arsenal. In a recently conducted interview by CNBC, he had to say: "Of course, we as shareholders point to some drawbacks in the management of the club but he is a great coach and the club is progressing in the commercial sense." When asked about the speculation linking England and Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney to a surprise move to Arsenal, he had to say: "He is a great player and [joining Arsenal] would be great for Rooney, and Arsenal too."

Arsene Wenger hides behind a makeshift back four setting a Champions League record of the most minutes without conceding a goal (Eboue, Senderos, Toure and Flamini) all of whom are nowhere near or have ever been close to being world-class and a 2003/04 so called invincibles in which was achieved by world-class striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy striking the bar in a penalty he would put away 9 times out of 10 and Robert Pires diving versus Portsmouth at Highbury to deny us defeat. We lost our Chairman and replaced him with another Pensioner yet we need a new direction from top to bottom. We shut out Alisher Usmanov when we needed him more than ever - scrapping with Spurs for 4th each season and pipping them by 1 point twice now is not good enough. Wenger has taken 70mil+ in wages in the past 10 years (More than a winning Sir Alex) yet he has a plus net spend. We no longer are a Football Club but a money making business for Stan Kroenke, hence Wenger is beyond being sacked and why he wont spend anything close to ...

ARSENAL REJECTS TALK OF RECORD TAKEOVER BID = Arsenal has rejected reports of a record £1.5 billion takeover bid from a Middle East consortium, adding that majority owner Stan Kroenke has no intention of selling his stake in the English Premier League club. The Sunday Telegraph reported that the consortium, backed by funds from Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, had already requested a meeting with American billionaire Kroenke, ahead of what would be a record takeover bid for a football club. The newspaper said the bidders would like to unite Arsenal’s ownership, putting all the shares together in one fund. The offer is said to be for the full 62,217 shares which have been issued, paying around £830 million for Kroenke’s 66.83% shareholding. Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov has repeatedly stated his goal of securing outright ownership of Arsenal. Usmanov, and his business partner Farhad Moshiri, have been steadily increasing their stake in the club in recent times and currently own 29.96% of Ars ...

ARSENAL DEAL OR NO DEAL Kroenke 'no intention' of selling Reports have claimed a Middle East consortium are preparing a £1.5billion bid to buy out the Barclays Premier League club at around £20,000 a share. However, sources close to the Arsenal board this morning maintained there had been no approach, informal or otherwise, to the American owner, who remains "in it for the long term". Kroenke pushed through his £430million-plus takeover in April 2011, and now holds 66.83% of the club to give him overall control. The Kroenke Sports Enterprise Group has a history of sustained involvement in all of his sporting interests in the United States, which include the Denver Nuggets of the NBA and the Colorado Avalanche in the NHL, as well as Major League Soccer club the Colorado Rapids. Uzbek oil magnate Alisher Usmanov remains Arsenal's second largest shareholder with a 29.96% holding, but does not currently have a seat on the board. Reports suggest that, if successful in a potential takeover, the consortium - ...

Source close to Alisher Usmanov says he too remains committed to Arsenal for the long term.
The extraordinary flow of money into European football from the Middle East could be set to accelerate dramatically after an unnamed consortium revealed plans to pay a record £1.5bn to transform Arsenal into a "world force". The group, who did not want their identities revealed, have made their tantalising proposals public on the eve of Sunday's north London derby. They have issued a series of promises apparently designed to appeal to Arsenal's increasingly frustrated fan base – including "substantial transfer funds", wiping out the club's debts, reduced ticket prices and even an attempt to recreate "some of the feel of the old North Bank" at the Emirates Stadium. A bid source, talking to the Sunday Telegraph, said the proposal involved making a cash offer for all 62,217 shares, the bulk of which are currently held by the majority shareholder, the American Stan Kroenke, and Alisher Usmanov, who has a 29.96% stake. Kroenke would reportedly be offered around £830m for the 66.83% shareholding he has buil ...

Mr Wenger should leave and Stan Kroenke sell all his Arsenal shares to Alisher Usmanov... and kill himself afterwards
The anniversary files: how Rangers owned part of Arsenal – and then sold it By Tony Attwood 16 May 1910 Following the collapse of Woolwich Arsenal’s attempts to launch a new share issue, and the widespread knowledge that the club was in such deep financial trouble that the League had demanded a meeting with them about next season, rumours began to circulate. Was the club about to fold? Was there a white knight about to take over? What was Henry Norris going to do? Amidst all the stories there was one set of rumours that reverberate today – and that is that Tottenham and Chelsea and Rangers FC were all trying to buy all or part of Woolwich Arsenal FC. In fact it came to nothing – except that Rangers did actually buy some shares – shares that they continued to hold until Alisher Usmanov bought them. This sale of those shares bought in 1910 came to light when Scotland’s Daily Record ran the story that Mr Usmanov’s Red and White Holdings Ltd bought 16 shares at a total cost of £230,000 ($361,2 ...
CHARLES GREEN has claimed he’ll heal another wound from Craig Whyte’s reign by buying back Rangers’ shares in Arsenal. Shamed former owner Whyte flogged 102 years of history when he cashed in on the link between the clubs last year. He struck a deal worth more than £230,000 when he sold the 16 shares to Russian magnate Alisher Usmanov, a story that was exclusively revealed by Record Sport. Green is adamant they will be heading north again but far from looking to sell off slices of his stake, Usmanov is desperate to increase his shareholding and needs 21 more shares to own 30 per cent of the club. That would allow him to exert more influence on the way major shareholder Stan Kroenke runs the club. Green was in Stornoway meeting with a supporters group last night as he continued a tour of far-flung fans groups. The Ibrox supremo is rallying the fans and sees returning the Gunners shares as an important step in rebuilding the club. He said: “We’ll be buying back our shares in Arsenal and I’m als ...

Alisher Usmanov: Thierry Henry wants me to take over Arsenal
Alisher Usmanov criticises board for turning Arsenal into feeder club The underlying tensions within Arsenal's ownership structure have resurfaced as time ticks down towards the transfer deadline after the major shareholder, Alisher Usmanov, claimed the board's lack of spending and inability to hang on to the club's best players have effectively rendered them a feeder team for their rivals. Usmanov, who owns just under 30% of Arsenal, has regularly expressed his frustrations at the running of the club by the majority shareholder, Stan Kroenke, and offered his latest outburst in an interview with L'Equipe. Arsenal have not claimed a trophy since the FA Cup in 2005 and have lost the likes of Robin van Persie, Samir Nasri and Gaël Clichy to the two Manchester clubs – as well as Cesc Fábregas and Alex Song to Barcelona – in recent years. "The greatest achievement of Arsène Wenger is to have created two teams: the one that now plays for our rivals and the one that is trying to be among the best in the P ...
