I must say I was shocked to see Tom Hicks and George Gillerr sitting next to each other in the directors box during the Arsenal game on Tuesday. Does this mean the two have put their differences aside and have finally realised that they need to work together if we are to be successful?
I am not sure if they will be able to arrange the financing they require to keep the club and inject some more cash with the way the global markets are looking. The two have to refinance the club’s £350 million loans with Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and Wachovia, the American bank, before they are due to be repaid on July 25. It is understood they (Hicks and Gillett) were entertaining representatives from RBS on Tuesday night at the game so maybe thats why they showed signs of solidarity.
For me personally, I hope Hicks and Gillett sell the club to someone with cash. We need some big money to make big names signings to push us to the next level.
