I was lucky to have had Danny as a friend for 45 years. The Arsenal were truly fortunate to have had Danny as a Director. What you all now are aware is how instrumental he was in delivering the Emirates Stadium on time and on budget. Everyone who was fortunate to come into contact with our friend Danny will always cherish our memory of him.
