Arsenal Message Board
Is any one worried about Arshavin because I really am..... having only just watched a replay of some of our games this season to say his form is dire is puting it mildly.
I know he can come alive suddenly and make things happen..... TBH only one player who's is worse than Arshavin in the EPL at the moment is Torres and he is sh*t utterly cack!!.
I am talking simple passes to a mate less than 10yards away without pressure on him. With AA he doesn't even make an effort to get the ball back even when he is closer to the ball than the opponent ...it makes me wonder does AW ever have a word with his players at all ...you can overlook it if its a one off ..... or an occassional occurrence .... it is frustrating for fans when this happens week in week out...
If I was the coach it is certainly time to warm the bench I am afraid till he learns to put in the effort to at least try and win the ball back...play Rosicky ahead of him I'd say....

Yeah...you also told us Berbatov was 'the new Cantona' though Chrissy. Before you changed your mind and told us 'We need to get rid of Berbatov and bring back Forlan'.
A tad 'Inconsistent' surely.
Arshavin is a player of 'Rare quality'.
Arshavin will come good ( as will Berbatov).
When Arshavin misplaces a pass, this is what is usually going through his head (in the meerkat voice):
"Hello ball, I am Andrey. I going to score genius goal with you. I am long way from goal, but I put you in back of net. Mr Wenger be annoyed with me? But I am Andrey, a genius, I no listen to him. But he pay me money, I must do what he say. Okay Clichy - here, have ball. Ah sh*t... not good ball Andrey."
