Andrey Arshavin maybe a man short in size and stature but he will become a giant of a player for Arsenal.
His goal today was immense and straight out of his You-Tube drawer. Type Arshavin in You-Tube and you will see goal after goal of similar style.
His arrival at Arsenal seems to have had a knock-on effect to the rest of the side and it has given everyone associated with Arsenal a huge lift. With the business end of the season in sight the lift couldn't have arrived at a better time.
I have one question though about Arshavin. Why does he wear gloves? I'd have thought it would be hot over here in England compared to Russia!
The 4-0 hiding of Blackburn wasn't all down to Arshavin and Nicklas Bendtner tried his best to keep the score line as low as possible.
Gooners are split on Bendtner but I think he should be given a break. The booing was wrong and to be honest there was really no need. Yes, he missed chance after chance but it was petty to get on his back like that.
I happen to think he will become a very good player and if he did leave the club as a result of him being booed then it could come back to bite us on the arse.
Eboue is the other player used to being booed by Gooners but fingers crossed he has turned the corner. He hasn't endeared himself to the Arsenal faithful in the past with his antics but if he works hard on the pitch then we can build bridges with him.
The result was flattering for Blackburn and could have been a lot more than the four goals we did score. What makes it even more sweeter is the fact Fat Sam is in charge of Blackburn. I can't stand that man and to see his face looking like thunder at the end warmed my cockles.
It's over to the Spuds now to do us a favour against Villa but in my opinion finishing in the top four is down to us. We have the quality and players coming back from injury and that should be enough.
Keep it Goonerish............
