John Collard-Arshavin in last chance saloon 14

Posted on July 30, 2012 by admin

Afternoon Gooners.

Today I’ve been reading some very interesting articles. It would now seem our little Russian may still have a future at Arsenal football club. Now to be honest, in my opinion, the little guy deserves another chance. But I want your views on this situation, would you send him on his way?

The characteristics of this guy on the football pitch at times frustrates us all (Agreed). But I really believe this guy can offer great value as a squad player. On the down side he can be sublime one minute and a complete lazy waste of space the other. So is it, for you guys, a risk worth taking?

PS. I would like to congratulate all the Gooners upon showing that Arsenal is still the pride of London. Taking the Spuds to a Football academy is something I saw coming. [They have a lot of homework to if they are to finish above us!]

The first article of mine to appear on this website early last year was about Arsenal’s squad depth. I argued that Arsenal clearly lacked depth. Even though Arsene brings in new players every season, my observation was (and still is) that these are just replacements and not real reinforcements to tackle the challenge of squad depth.

Andrei – Should Arsenal Call Arshavin Back In The Summer? 6

Posted on March 01, 2012 by admin

Arsenal’s winger Andrey Arshavin was one of the most unwanted players in the last few months at the club after losing his form completely. Fans started to attack him every time he entered the pitch and we all know about the incident when Wenger substituted the OX with Arshavin and the whole stadium went up in flames.

The funny side of the story is that after not scoring a single goal for the Arsenal senior side since the Swansea match, Arshavin made a loan move to Zenit a week ago and he already seems to be in better form having scored against Denmark for Russia in a friendly.

Arshavin shouldn’t be leaving Arsenal. by KJ

It looks extremely likely now that Arshavin will leave Arsenal for the club we bought him from, Zenit St Petersburg. This isn’t the greatest news for an Arsenal team on little confidence and approaching one of the more difficult periods in our season. I feel his leave is fuelled by the fact that Arsene plays him out of position constantly and is also compounded by Arshavin trying to cement his place in Russia’s Euro squad.

Weslee: Are Arsenal fans expecting too much from certain players? 35

Arshavin would never have been able to cover Valencia.

Ok gooners, take a deep breath. Release. Here goes. I had recorded the game, so, i took a second look at the game with a view towards the Chamberlain substitution and the United second goal. I therefore looked at the whole game to see what the ebb and flow by both teams would show. First, United was man marking and being very tight on their marks. Second, Arsenal was constantly moving from the back to the United goal. This placed more pressure on the midfield and defence. Lastly, there were many occasions for Arsenal to score but failed to do so. Van Persie’s first attempt off the Rosicky feed being the most memorable. United also had several opportunities but Szczney kept them out. Van Persie missed badly.

Anurag – It’s Wengers fault that Arshavin has no enthusiasm 18

It was another disappointing game for Arsenal as they just came a bit short against Manchester United, the match was a treat to watch really. That being said, the game, at least in an Arsenal fan’s point of view, will more likely be remembered for Wenger’s controversial decision to bring on Andrei Arshavin in place of a very game Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

I mean where do I start? Okay, the decision was definitely a poor one considering the circumstances but the booing was totally uncalled for. To see the look on Arshavin’s face when he came on really broke my heart. Although the Russian isn’t doing much to help his cause, it is a really sad sight to see a player being picked on by his own fans.

Nitesh: Arshavin needs to show that he can still succeed at Arsenal, and FAST! 4

Posted on January 14, 2012 by Nitesh

The Russian has had a rather strange journey at Arsenal. He absolutely exploded out of the ranks after signing for Arsenal, and who can forget his 4-goal haul at Anfield? But he has rather failed to show the promise most fans saw in Euro 2008, and his career has been a bit of a sorry tale this year.

SVGunner – Arsenal need to be patient with Chamakh and Arshavin 1

Posted on December 28, 2011 by admin

I would just like to say something in the defence of two of Arsenal’s most under fire players: Chamakh and Arshavin.

I can almost see your exasperation at this but, please, hear me out. Virtually all of our current players have been solidly criticised by the media at some point or another; Koscielny, Song, Arteta, Walcott, Gervinho, Sczcesny and even Van Persie (in past seasons, due to his temperament) have been slated by the media. I don’t know why this is (perhaps the media have it in for Arsenal) but I do know that each of these players has pulled through and gained the respect of Arsenal fans and media alike; none more so than RVP. So I would ask you to please have a little more patience with Arshavin and Chamakh, as I think that each of them has reasons for their (lack of) form.

S.H.: Reasons why Arsenal fans will miss Andrey Arshavin 12

Posted on December 12, 2011 by Nitesh

On 21st April 2009, Anfield Liverpool, witnessed a historic mark in time. Since 1946, no one else had scored 4 goals, at the home, “where you will never walk alone”. Andrey Arshavin had just stunned Liverpool and became a hero to all Arsenal fans. The Final score: Liverpool 4 Arshavin 4. It was the first time, the diminutive Russian maestro had ever scored 4 goals in a game. A GAME WHERE ARSENAL HAD ONLY 4 ATTEMPTS ON GOAL. Just a small feat to add to his Russian Footballer of the Year Award Russian Premier League , Russian Premier League Cup, Russian Super Cup, UEFA Cup and the UEFA Super Cup. He achieved this from 2000-2009 with Zenit St Petersburg, where he played 308 games, scored 76 goals and made 107 assists.

Pat – Is Arshavin’s Time Up at Arsenal? 9

Posted on November 28, 2011 by admin

When Andrei Arshavin was named in the starting lineup for the first time in five matches, there was much anticipation among the Arsenal faithful. At last, the Russian was being given the chance that he demanded himself earlier in the season. In the crucial match against Fulham, he would play a very integral role in attacking for the team.

We anticipated the Arshavin of old. Quick, lively and magical. The first ten minutes were good by anybody’s standards too, as Arshavin lapped up on poor touches from Fulham players, had a goal disallowed (correctly, for offside) and made a few nice moves down his flank.
