Good news at last for Arsenal fans - Amazing pictures !!!!

Nobody in Manchester really wants to pile on the agony for the residents of Woolwich but there is a glimmer of light amongst the many supporters of their struggling football club.

Finans magazine's latest list of Russian zillionaires is led by Oleg Deripaska at US$40 billion his dosh handily exceeds the US$17 billion of Chukotka governor and Chelsea Football Club owner, divorcee, playboy Roman Abramovich.

But it's good news all round for the obese Co-owner of the “Arsenal”, Alisher Usmanov who was upgraded to 12th, (from 22nd place) with US $13,3 billion and drew almost level with Vagit Alekperov of fast growing LUKoil ($13,5 billion).Latest pic of Alisher surfing.

Boris Berezovsky who fled to avoid prosecution to the UK where he was welcomed by Tony Blair and sweetly (and very swiftly) given UK citizenship is down to 80th, with an estimated wealth of $1.3 billion.

Keep an eye out however for glamorous , slim, pouting, beautiful Elena Baturina head of Inetko Group who was downgraded to 27 from 17, with US$7 billion but is also Mrs Mayor of Moscow as her spouse was Mayor Yury Luzhkov . (Forbes has her at 335th in the world)

After Luzhkov became mayor, her Inteko company became the largest construction firm in the city, mostly building prefab housing when his term as Mayor ended she bailed out and sold off a lot of her interests - and sensibly took the cash.

She is the president of the Equestrian Federation of Russia and tells su that she spends most of her time with horses and her two daughters.
