    No article retract from the Athletic, 24 hours after Kia claimed to have instructed his lawyers.

    Why don’t Arsenal release a statement? Just for transparency, given they have playing staff on a wage cut.

    Hopefully someone from here has a listen and gives a summary of what gets said.

    Is it live or pre-recorded?

    I really cannot believe that we paid 24m all in total for David Luiz. I mean even if they have strings attached to Kia this would be plain stupid. And if this would have happend they would lose their job.

    Or does Amy Lawrence has any prove?

    There will be more fallout from this, I’m sure Amy Lawrence will have her say after Kia claimed this is not true.

    Arsenal paid 8-9m for Luiz, and 10% of it is close to 1m, just like Kia said and Marcotti confirmed.
    Amy Laurence is in a shambles.

    Amy Laurence won't say anything specific bar "BuT i HaVe A wElL-iNfOrMeD sAuCe" and "BuT i WrOtE a BoOk AbOuT wEnGa AnD tHe InViNcIbLeS"

    If she got played kind of interesting why & by who? Alot of stories seem to be around about what players the club wants out & our inner dealings.

    Never got the impression the type to run a story without good source & very well respected in the club.

    Athletic or Lawrence have not retracted their claims. Interesting how this will play out.

    Either they will pull the story or they’ll back it up, either way the truth will come out.

    American_Gooner Not actually American. Unless Di Marzio says so. Moderator

    Maybe by one of the board members who've been marginalised recently by Raul and co.

    Its weird that people chose to believe one of the most sketchy person in football industry over well respected journalist. But then again Trump is a president so.

    Of course Kia claim he has evidence. When shady deals are done the numbers are well hidden, even for most trained eyes.

    Maybe it was Sven...when he was rooting around the dumpsters at Arsenal for food, he found some discarded papers with some dirt on Raul and Kia.

    Yeah Gab Marcotti who almost never reports on us and works for renowned bullish*t merchants ESPN or Amy Lawrence who’s spent almost her entire career covering the club, clearly built up a good network of contacts and who very rarely speculates in her tweets.

    Tough call.

    Who at the club in the current setup would she have close links to that would have access to that sort of information and give it to her? Bearing in mind it would make the people running things look bad......The only one would be Sir Chips.

    Who knows? We don’t know the inner workings and politics of the upper levels at the club. Raul and co present a united front to the fans but we don’t know who’s nose is out of joint or has an axe to grind.

    When the pressure is on you’ll notice most clubs start leaking more than the titanic.

    What's with everyone all of a sudden sucking off Amy Lawrence? All journalists are the same and twist bits of truth here and there for more clicks.

    To post such claims, the Athletic and Amy must feel they’re on solid ground. I mean she’s never been one to post extravagant stuff.

    Like I keep saying though, if Kia has the paperwork and his lawyers on this then the truth will come out. It’s been a day since the threat of lawyers and no claims are being taken back.

    Kia will get a public apology if the Athletic can’t back up their story.

    It doesn’t need us to bring our so called agendas into play, this is playing out in front of us.
