Runyonesque Arsenal Outclass Spurs In League Cup Photos

by | 22nd, September 2010

THINGS are happening at Arsenal Football Club, winners of the League Cup game with local rivals Spurs by four goals to one. It’s not so much the action as the names of the players that catches the eye. Step forward and take a bow to the club members Henri Lansbury, scorer of The Gunners’ first goal, a refulgent strike.

Runyonesque names are in vogue once more at Arsenal, a side that boats board members of such calibre as Peter Hill-Wood (chairman), Sir Chips Keswick, Lord Harris of Peckham, ‘Silent’ Stanley Kroenke, Lady Nina Bracewell-Smith and Danny Fiszman. Kroenke bought shares off Lady Sarah Phipps-Bagge. For added intrigue, the battle for Arsenal ownership figures an Uzbek billionaire named Alisher Usmanov.

Wonderful stuff. And ripe for Henri Lansbury to fit right in…
