Arsenal man to be new Managing Director of Liverpool

October 13, 2010

That’s the news I have just received on former Arsenal MD, Keith Edelman.

There is a board meeting taking place right now in the City of London offices of Slaughter & May legal bigwigs.

In attendance is John Henry, the new proposed yank owner, the Liverpool board led by Martin Broughton and as mentioned, Keith Edelman.

The man who was supposedly the one who negotiated the terrible commercial deals currently in place at the Arsenal.

He was unofficially sacked by Danny Fizman.

Now he looks to have a future at LFC.

Interesting.

    I think this is a welcomed development. Last season it was Pouthsmouth. Now, an European super power – Liverpool. The shame couldn’t be imagined. Its a tragedy for the English football. We hope and pray that the negotiation works. Goodluck Liverpool.

    Is this a good thing or bad thing for Arsenal?

    It might actually be a good thing for Arsenal. This might make signing Reina easier.

    He has apparentely been an advisor to RBS throughout all the shenanigans. Therefore, he was there to look after their interests once the Board meeting kicked off (shortly before it was brought to an abrupt halt by a $1.6m lawsuit & injunction).

    I dont see him as being there long-term…

    It is probably the cheapest signing Liverpool could get.

    Not sure y it would make signing reina easier?

    If he still holds grudges with Fizman etc then it could make it harder.

    we’re not signing reina, it’s so obvious that rumour is a complete joke. he’s way out of our reach.

    i hear though that liverpool’s new owners will look to take the arsenal approach to financing itself.

    i think this is good for arsenal. arsenal is like a beacon of hope in a sea of selfish billionaires, and now other clubs are following our example. we will take the billionaire scourge out of the game eventually!

    He was there on behalf of RBS apparantly.

    Edelman is n’t a football man – but whatever you say about the commercial deals, he masterminded the move to the Emirates, got the stadium built on time and on budget (who else has done that?) and saw the Highbury Development through which is now producing millions….
