30.6.12 - Keeling meets with Usmanov

Geoff Keeling woke up very late that morning. He had been playing Football Manager very late into the night. He dragged himself out of his bed and went to open the curtains in his room. The sun shone in and gave Geoff a surge of warmth. He walked back over to his bed and picked up his phone, which was casually left on the floor, as were a lot of things in his room.
He looked at his phone and it said that he had a missed call from Alisher Usmanov saying, " Hello Geoff, I would like you to meet me in my office at 11:00am today please, I have something very important to tell you."

He started to feel nervous, and he quickly rushed around his house looking for clothes to wear. He was delighted to find under a large mound of clothes his beloved Arsenal Tie, something he had cherished since he was a child. He quickly ate some breakfast and was on his way.

The Meeting


-Hello there Geoff, please do take a seat.
-Hello Alisher, sorry I missed your call, I had a late night.
-Oh that is quite alright, how are you?
-Oh yeah, I'm great, I'm still buzzing from the Spurs , yourself?
-Yes I am good thanks, should we get down to business then?
-Now Geoff, it has been a year since I bought the club, and I told myself "It will only be a short time, I will sell it again." But the club has just grown on me! I don't want to sell the club anymore.
-That's great!
-Yes, and since I am committing to club, I would like you to do the same, will you please sign a new contract?
-Well, I would be delighted to!
-Really, that's great! How much would you like?
-Give me a contract, and I'll sign it, I don't care how much I get.
-Well ok, how does £77k a week sound?
-Fantastic, I thinks that's all for today, thanks for coming to the meeting, Is there anything I can do for you?
-Well, there is one,
-Go on,
-There shouldn't be any sponsors on the home kit.
-I'll see what I can do!
-Ok thanks Alisher, I'll see you later.
