Anyone else see the headlines about the Arsenal takeover?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/8616504.stm

I was interested in the article to find out what was going on and the only quote that we have is that the selling of Lady Bracewell-Smith's shares was not likely to be immanent. I started to wonder how this counted as news then. But then I finally realized when I read the final paragraph, that this happens the same day that we will learn if Stan will sell his stake in his last place American Football team the St. Louis Rams and free up a lot of capital that could be used to buy her shares.

Otherwise this isn't news, it would be if you got a quote from Lady, or a quote from her husband saying the sale is imminent but you don't, all you have is that she is now have a realitor sell her house (Arsenal shares) instead of trying to do it herself, we already knew since she left the board a year or 2 ago that she was looking to sell her shares since then. This is barely news.

Update:

Your thoughts? will you be following this story?
