I'll be honest here,
I want Arshavin to sign but do I only want him to sign because we haven't seen a "star" name sign for Arsenal for ages or because I believe he could benefit the team?
I think its a mixture of both really.
Over the last few years we have seen the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and even Tottenham spend big money on "star" name signings.
I'll admit that maybe I have become a little jealous because I know deep down that we won't be spending big money on anyone.
We have become accustomed to spending very little on players and it's difficult to watch the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea spending money and winning things while we are not.
I understand its difficult for Wenger to break his habits but there are times he needs to break the bank.
However, I believe that Arsenal have done well in this transfer saga involving Arshavin. I think that Zenit have been a disgrace throughout the whole thing.
In other transfers I'd urge Arsenal to maybe go that little extra like we should have for Alonso but Zenit are being so difficult I want Arsenal to stick to their guns.
The situation has become tedious and almost farcial and despite me wanting Arsenal to sign a big name, I don't want them to pay over the odds in this deal.
Keep it Goonerish............
