This Arshavin deal (no funny names anymore) is another PR disaster for Arsenal and just winds up the fans. Deadlines by Zenit, deadlines for a work permit, it’s Arshavins fault aaaaarrrrrgggghhhhh. This is like the Nasri deal all over again. At least by 5 oclock on Monday we will be put out of our misery.
It maybe a better money spinner for Arsenal to sell keyboards in the Armoury than Eboue shirts. My F5 key has worn out moving between the Newsnow, Zenit and Arshavin.com websites. But then again this could be the dreaded smokescreen that transfer theorists would like us to believe.
I have noticed that some bookies are making Aston Villa fourth favourites for the league title now and that’s after we are on our best run of the season.
Onto tonights game, we have Clichy back from his suspension and Gallas is fit, but I don’t see either of those making any great improvement over Toure and Gibbs who had a cracking game on Sunday.
Sorry everyone but I don’t think we are going to win tonight. I am going for a 1-1 .
The team I think Mr Wenger will pick is.
