His old partner Moshiri owns a majority of Everton FC. Would Usmanov like to join him there? “Yes. With great pleasure, if he asks,” he says. “I am thinking about my investment in this club . . . I cannot reject Arsenal. I will not leave them as a fan. But if I join Everton, then I will wear an Everton shirt, because I am a professional.

“They are going to build a new stadium. Why not the USM Arena? It is not obligatory for me to participate myself. I could just sponsor them.” A week after our meeting, Usmanov brokers a deal to bring Carlo Ancelotti, the former Real Madrid manager, to Everton.

“What is the remedy for love? New love,” he laughs. “If you think like a Muslim, who can have four wives, or a harem? . . . I love Arsenal, but I failed. What can I do? But I also believe Arsenal lost something without Usmanov.”

I can tell from the various politics/election threads that a great many of NSNO folks are left-leaning to extremely progressive (correct me if I'm wrong).

I'm curious how you feel about someone like Usmanov being involved with your Club? Yes his money opens a great many doors for us, but he has quite the checkered past and based on what he's bought/sold in the past, appears to be quite right-leaning if not outright supportive of totalitarian ideals.

I personally don't care, as I've devoured plenty of artists and movies starring unsavory types, and I'm certain I've both directly and indirectly supported terrible corporations, but I'm just wondering some of your thoughts on the matter.

Same could be said for a few current Premier League team owners /  investors, all have had some sort of dodgy dealing in the past, that's how they've got where they are now. I won't lose a single second of sleep over any of uncle Usmanov's previous dealings, let's not forget that our current majority shareholder also had a bit of previous

Personally, if it meant we won something I’d be happy with a board made up of Hitler, Stalin, Voldemort, Sauron, Cobra Commander with Satan as Chairman

Ming The Merciless as Chief Exec
