With the sale of Alisher Usmanov’s shares to Stan Kroenke, Arsenal entered the world of modern football, but what can Arsenal fans expect?

In his fantastic book, ‘The Billionaires Club’, James Montague details the shady world of football club ownership at the top end of the game, including an extensive analysis of Stan Kroenke and the impact he has had on some of the clubs he owns.

If you are interested in how oligarchs and Emirati come to own football clubs in England or, perhaps more importantly, why they want them in the first place, Montague’s tale of slavery, torture, corruption, and greed delivers answers to questions you didn’t even know you had.

We have three copies of the book to give away thanks to those wonderful people at Bloomsbury.
