    Thats not what you want to do.

    You want to set up a trust fund so they get a monthly payment. You can set up a trust fund so your mother gets, say, $10,000 a month for the rest of her life. According to my math, $10,000 per month for 20 years is $2.4 million. That's better than giving her $2.4 million up front because she can blow it all in a matter of days and then she'll want more and you'd feel obligated to give it to her.

    So if you win, don't "give" anybody anything. Set up a trust fund.

    Now that I think about it, I could set up a trust fund for my brother. I'd give him $10,000 a month. He's about 45 now so $10,000 per month for 40 years is only $4.8 million. That makes more sense than giving him the money in one lump sum.

    Apparently Usmanov tried to buy Arsenal but Kroenke wouldn't sell

    Arsenal from upper management, manager and players is gonna be the most interesting club to watch over the Summer
    Arsenal shareholder Alisher Usmanov makes £1billion bid to take full control of Gunners but Stan Kroenke is not willing to sell

    Uzbekistan metals magnet Usmanov made the massive offer in a recent letter to American sports mogul Stan Kroenke, who owns 67 per cent of the club.

    It's understood Kroenke did not initially turn down the fortune, which values Arsenal at over £1.6billion with Usmanov owning 30 per cent already. But he has indicated over the last week that he will not be selling.

    But Arsenal, who are in grave danger of not qualifying for the Champions League for the first time in two decades, are a club in flux with a dysfunctional management structure.

    Manager Arsene Wenger's future is still unclear, there is an absentee owner in Kroenke, a lame duck chairman in Chips Keswick and an ineffectual chief executive in Ivan Gazidis who is believed to have a poor working relationship with Wenger.

    Usmanov, whose bid would have given Kroenke a profit of over four-times what he paid for his shares, is more critical of the American than Wenger.

    He believes Kroenke has not invested enough in Arsenal and has been happy to keep the status quo of ever-rising profits from Wenger delivering Champions League football for 20 years.

    Neither Arsenal nor Usmanov's camp have offered comment.

    Alisher Usmanov to make second Arsenal takeover bid after having £1bn offer rejected by Stan Kroenke

    The American majority shareholder is unwilling to sell as it stands

    alisher-usmanov.jpg

    Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov has had a £1billion bid for Stan Kroenke’s 67 per cent Arsenal stake rejected but still appears to harbour hopes of a takeover, with the club on the brink of failing to qualify for the Champions League this weekend.

    Usmanov would have known when making his $1.3bn offer– revealed by the Financial Times on Friday – that the US sports mogul Kroenke would be unwilling to sell. But the timing of the move and the leak is significant, ahead of what is set to be an weekend of soul-searching and protest among Arsenal fans if – as expected – the club’s 19 consecutive years of Champions League football comes to an end.

    Demands that Wenger and his protector Kroenke leave the club will escalate if Manchester City and Liverpool secure the draw and win which they respectively need on Sunday to keep the North London club out of the top four. Usmanov - the Russian billionaire, who controls a 30 per cent stake - is striking at Kroenke at the point of greatest weakness. At the very least, the bid may put pressure on Kroenke - a remote figure rarely seen at the Emirates - to find a bold way of demonstrating to supporters that Arsenal’s decline can be turned around.

    The Financial Times reported that Kroenke had not rejected out of hand the idea of selling his share to Usmanov or someone else, quoting a source who said: “Two weeks ago, I thought something could realistically happen. Now I am not so sure.”

    The men have been at odds for a number of years over the direction of the club. Usmanov feels there has been a lack of investment by Kroenke and may be less wedded than him to the idea of continuing with Wenger, whose future will become clearer after this weekend’s closing fixtures of the Premier League season

    Usmanov has become increasingly concerned about a lack of investment by Kroenke. In an interview with Bloomberg last month, Usmanov said the blame for the club’s performance should not rest solely with Wenger, but also with Kroenke and the board, from which Mr Usmanov is excluded.

    Arsenal stands to lose out on about £50m in revenue if it misses out on the European tournament.

    Other bidders are thought to be ready to make a move for Kroenke’s share in Arsenal and Usmanov could return with a more substantial bid. He has no plans to dispose of his stake. He first acquired shares in Arsenal in 2007, when he teamed up with Farhad Moshiri to purchase a 14.6 per cent stake for £75m.

    Usmanov increased his stake to 30 per cent last year, buying out Moshiri, who went on to buy Everton. Kroenke also bought into Arsenal in 2007 and became majority shareholder four years later.

    Ligue 2 is lit!

    1 more game of the season to go and 6 teams could still potentially win it

    Amiens earn Ligue 1 promotion with 96th-minute winner over Reims as Strasbourg are crowned champions


    Strasbourg have been promoted as champions of Ligue 2 while a 96th-minute winner for Amiens means they join them in the French top flight next season after securing back-to-back promotions.

    Emmanuel Bourgaud broke the hearts of Troyes as the substitute lashed in the winning goal against Reims deep into stoppage time, while Lens, Brest and Nimes all missed out on promotion on the final day.

    It was the night billed as the most dramatic finale to a season across Europe, and while it certainly delivered with several twists and turns, all six sides capable of securing promotion won their respective games.


    [watch the dramatic, winning Amiens goal in below link]
    https://streamable.com/h13ha

    Thirty different combinations to finish in the top two automatic spots could have occurred - and a night of high drama delivered, with Strasbourg edging out Bourg Peronnas 2-1 and Amiens beating Reims by the same scoreline.
    Troyes had thought they had done enough to secure an immediate return to Ligue 1 but despite recovering from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Sochaux, they were made to settle for a play-off with the 18th-placed side in the top flight later this month.

    Not really "bossed". Argentina were clearly the better side in the first half and in the 2nd half before the red card. Unfortunately for them, England withstood the pressure and took their chances when they came.

    Arsenal need a billionaire like Alisher Usmanov to move forward, says Ian Wright

    Arsenal need the spending power of a billionaire such as Alisher Usmanov in order to move to the next level, says Gunners legend Ian Wright.

    Uzbek-born Russian Usmanov has made a £1bn bid to take full control of the Gunners, but majority shareholder Stan Kroenke has shown no interest in it.

    "He has put in the bid and it is great news," Wright told BBC Radio 5 live.

    "Something has to change, whether it is the manager Arsene Wenger or whether it is the board upstairs."

    Arsenal need other teams to slip up in Sunday's final round of matches to avoid missing out on Champions League qualification for the first time in 21 years.

    Wenger, who has been manager since 1996, has been the target of protests from some of the club's fans.

    The Frenchman's future at the club will be decided at a board meeting after Arsenal meet Chelsea in the FA Cup final on 27 May.


    "It is not looking good for Arsenal at the moment," Wright told 5 live's Friday Football Social.

    "They may be out of the Champions League - something they are not used to - and they have to beat one of the best Chelsea sides I have seen for a long time in the FA Cup final to try and get something from the season.

    "Where are they going to sign players from? Who is going to want to come to Arsenal instead of anywhere else in London? At the moment, they are not an attractive proposition.

    "We are already missing out on the managers we are supposedly interested in and we are going to start missing out on the kind of players that are going to be available and want to play in the Premier League.

    "Top players may want to leave. Too much is up in the air.

    "Something has got to happen for Arsenal to go to that next level. This bid will galvanise the fans."



    'Arsenal need a winner like Abramovich'

    Chelsea have won 14 major trophies since Roman Abramovich (second right) took control of the club
    Metal magnate Usmanov owns 30% of Arsenal's shares but is not part of the board or decision-making at the club.

    Usmanov said in April that Kroenke must "bear huge responsibility" for the club's failures on the pitch.

    The Gunners' London rivals Chelsea won the Premier League this season - the fifth time they have done so under the ownership of billionaire Roman Abramovich, who has spent heavily since taking control in 2003.

    "Abramovich is a winner," added Wright, who scored 185 goals in 288 appearances for Arsenal.

    "Stan Kroenke sees it as another asset. If you look at all his other franchises, they are doing the same. They are mediocre, with poor attendances and aren't achieving anything as a team. That is where Arsenal are at the moment.

    "We need an owner like Abramovich, who wants to win. I would swap Arsenal's last 10 years for what Chelsea have done."

    Alisher Usmanov has wanted control of Arsenal for some time.

    A long-standing critic of the current board, he has attempted to curry favour with fans by calling for greater investment by Stan Kroenke. He believes the team should be performing at a much higher level.

    Now, with questions swirling over Arsene Wenger's future and with a lack of Champions League football next season looking inevitable, he has made his move.

    However, he has been rebuffed.

    The big question is whether this was a final throw of the dice by Usmanov? And, with seemingly no prospect of Kroenke selling, will he turn his purchasing power towards another Premier League club?

    Harry Kane wants to join the 100 club after Tottenham striker moves ahead in the race for the Golden Boot


    This is the third successive season that Kane, 23, has managed 20-plus Premier League goals and the second campaign he has reached 25. He stands on 75 in total from just 115 games.


    'It would be great if I can get to that 100 club by the end of next season,' he said.
    'If there is another season like this then hopefully I can get to the 100. It would be a fantastic achievement.'

    If he carries on at this rate he would be among the quickest to reach the mark.
    Michael Owen was the youngest at 23 years and four months, with Robbie Fowler next at 23 years and nine months.
    Kane is 24 in July so Wayne Rooney's place as the third youngest is secure at 24 years and three months, but Alan Shearer's 25 years and four months is a realistic target.

    WTF is Ian wright talking about, Arsenal is owned by not one but TWO billionaires.

    What incentive does Stan Kroneke have to sell his stake in what I believe is his biggest cash cow in terms of profits generated from the sports teams he owns.

    Abramovich and the eithad dude don't run Chelsea and Man City like a stock listed professional football club, they run them like a hobby, a billionaires dick measuring contest ( look how big my yacht is/ how many Championships​ my team won).

    Yes it is great for the fans of those didn't know me '91 but they know me now teams but Arsenal are not broke, have billionaire owners, can pay top wages, I think Arsenal fans just need to readjust expectations and realize it's not just Man Utd Liverpool and the goons competing for the title any more.

    I said this before already but Liverpool is by far a bigger and more successful club than Arsenal and you don't see their fans bitching and moaning like these fickle gooners do.

    Arsenal need a billionaire like Alisher Usmanov to move forward, says Ian Wright

    Arsenal need the spending power of a billionaire such as Alisher Usmanov in order to move to the next level, says Gunners legend Ian Wright.

    Uzbek-born Russian Usmanov has made a £1bn bid to take full control of the Gunners, but majority shareholder Stan Kroenke has shown no interest in it.

    "He has put in the bid and it is great news," Wright told BBC Radio 5 live.

    "Something has to change, whether it is the manager Arsene Wenger or whether it is the board upstairs."

    Arsenal need other teams to slip up in Sunday's final round of matches to avoid missing out on Champions League qualification for the first time in 21 years.

    Wenger, who has been manager since 1996, has been the target of protests from some of the club's fans.

    The Frenchman's future at the club will be decided at a board meeting after Arsenal meet Chelsea in the FA Cup final on 27 May.


    "It is not looking good for Arsenal at the moment," Wright told 5 live's Friday Football Social.

    "They may be out of the Champions League - something they are not used to - and they have to beat one of the best Chelsea sides I have seen for a long time in the FA Cup final to try and get something from the season.

    "Where are they going to sign players from? Who is going to want to come to Arsenal instead of anywhere else in London? At the moment, they are not an attractive proposition.

    "We are already missing out on the managers we are supposedly interested in and we are going to start missing out on the kind of players that are going to be available and want to play in the Premier League.

    "Top players may want to leave. Too much is up in the air.

    "Something has got to happen for Arsenal to go to that next level. This bid will galvanise the fans."



    'Arsenal need a winner like Abramovich'

    Chelsea have won 14 major trophies since Roman Abramovich (second right) took control of the club
    Metal magnate Usmanov owns 30% of Arsenal's shares but is not part of the board or decision-making at the club.

    Usmanov said in April that Kroenke must "bear huge responsibility" for the club's failures on the pitch.

    The Gunners' London rivals Chelsea won the Premier League this season - the fifth time they have done so under the ownership of billionaire Roman Abramovich, who has spent heavily since taking control in 2003.

    "Abramovich is a winner," added Wright, who scored 185 goals in 288 appearances for Arsenal.

    "Stan Kroenke sees it as another asset. If you look at all his other franchises, they are doing the same. They are mediocre, with poor attendances and aren't achieving anything as a team. That is where Arsenal are at the moment.

    "We need an owner like Abramovich, who wants to win. I would swap Arsenal's last 10 years for what Chelsea have done."

    Alisher Usmanov has wanted control of Arsenal for some time.

    A long-standing critic of the current board, he has attempted to curry favour with fans by calling for greater investment by Stan Kroenke. He believes the team should be performing at a much higher level.

    Now, with questions swirling over Arsene Wenger's future and with a lack of Champions League football next season looking inevitable, he has made his move.

    However, he has been rebuffed.

    The big question is whether this was a final throw of the dice by Usmanov? And, with seemingly no prospect of Kroenke selling, will he turn his purchasing power towards another Premier League club?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39981954

    WTF is Ian wright talking about, Arsenal is owned by not one but TWO billionaires.

    What incentive does Stan Kroneke have to sell his stake in what I believe is his biggest cash cow in terms of profits generated from the sports teams he owns.

    Abramovich and the eithad dude don't run Chelsea and Man City like a stock listed professional football club, they run them like a hobby, a billionaires dick measuring contest ( look how big my yacht is/ how many Championships​ my team won).

    Yes it is great for the fans of those didn't know me '91 but they know me now teams but Arsenal are not broke, have billionaire owners, can pay top wages, I think Arsenal fans just need to readjust expectations and realize it's not just Man Utd Liverpool and the goons competing for the title any more.

    I said this before already but Liverpool is by far a bigger and more successful club than Arsenal and you don't see their fans bitching and moaning like these fickle gooners do.

    At the end of the day spurs fans and Liverpool fans are complacent and happy with not winning the league or major trophies.

    Fans of the other clubs have seen their team win it multiple times and want that success again. And it's obvious why Arsenal fans are upset.
