Thankfully, Arshavin brought jokes

Read between the lines, Man U.

We all know that Arsenal’s defense needs work, hell the whole team could step up in that regard: even Cesc is talking about the need for a team defense step-up ahead of the Champions League clash with Man U. So, us fans fretting over it is probably not going to do a lick of good and us bloggers writing about it is pretty much pointless.

What I would love to tell you is that there’s a 100% chance of Eduardo, Almunia, and Djourou this weekend. But I can’t do that either, which is a bit of a bummer. What the hell is going on in our injury room gods damnit!?!?

I suppose that news will have to wait as well.


Which leaves us with nothing… well… we’ve got Arshavin cracking jokes and actually he’s a funny guy. I don’t know who he was talking to but in that link above he is both be humble about his place on the team and shows some self deprecating humor there at the end. And in this article he talks about his desire to succeed and how he’s not going to be another Beast.

Pretty cool stuff from a funny, smart, and driven young guy.

Which makes me wonder how I was so completely duped by the English and Russian press this January? I guess it just goes to show that you can’t believe everything you read, and even less of what you read in the papers.

Match preview tomorrow, see you then.
