RIP Danny Fiszman

I wasn't going to comment on the ownership changes at Arsenal until the dust had settled and it was actually clear what the picture going forward was going to be, but Danny Fiszman's sad death - which likelihood given his illness surely has some bearing on other recent events - should not go unremarked, I feel.

Peter Hill-Wood said: "We are all deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend Danny. His voice, wisdom and presence around the football club he so dearly loved will be sorely missed.

"Arsenal Football Club will forever be indebted to Danny for his invaluable foresight and contribution during the move from Highbury to our new stadium.

"Our thoughts at this time are with his wife Sally, family and friends. We have lost a much loved husband, father, grandfather and friend."

In Danny Fiszman's passing the club have lost a great servant and supporter. May he rest in peace.
