After the ‘will he won’t he’ saga of the past month, Andrei Arshavin’s transfer to Arsenal has finally been confirmed. Not by some suspect guy claiming to be a Zenit spokeman, not someone close to Arshavin and most certainly not according to what Sky Sports ‘understands’. Arsenal.com has pictures to confirm, which is good enough for me.
The Sportboys being Arsenal fans, are well chuffed with the news and you all should be too, because the whole bloody boring affair is over now. If you want reminding about why we predict he will thrive in the Premiership, read here.
Point of note: If the chant “Ar, Ar, Arshavin, Russia’s greatest goal machine” (to the tune of the Boney M classic ‘Rasputin’) catches on, we want credit.
