Pssst.... wanna buy a piece of Arse? The Gunners are to offer fans the chance to buy up shares and, in return, have a say in the future running of the club. With each share in the £640m club worth £10,250, it might seem a little steep for supporters who've already shelled out for season ticket, shirt, and scarf. However, the Arsenal Fanshare scheme, run by the Supporter's Trust, sells portions of a share. A crumb from the dinner plate might not see much, but add hundreds of thousands of fans together, and they could buy themselves a stake in the club's future direction. Costs run between £10 and £12,000 per year, and participants are free to increase or decrease their involvement as they see fit.
