Arshavin. Arsene. Arsenal. Three great sources of arse-related jokes, destined for greater greatness together? Arshavin’s agent certainly thinks so:
“The stable situation in the club and the influence of Arsène Wenger to Arsenal and to English football is huge. I think this is an advantage,” said Lachter. “If Arsenal go for Arshavin it could be really good for both parties. Arsenal is a very young team and Arshavin is 27. There’s something about combining young and older players, they propagate attacking football.”
Oh please oh please oh please let this happen. I don’t want to wax emotional, but if this only proves to be a close shave, a rumour created by a cheeky agent, I’ll be bummed out.
