It’s a three-part blog today with an update on Andrei Arshavin, some thoughts on the 0-0 FA Cup draw with Cardiff and a sheepish yet predictable apology for going missing yesterday. I’m sure the Australians who read the blog will understand.
So it’s big, big, big news to start with: Arsenal and Zenit St Petersburg have agreed a fee for Andrei Arshavin. Reports suggest that the two clubs have finally seen eye-to-eye and all that’s required is the Russian to agree personal terms before the move is made official.
I would expect Arshavin to be presented as an Arsenal player in the couple of days. I’ll make more of comment on Arshavin when the move is made official but in short it’s definitely something work getting excited about.
Cardiff v Arsenal
A draw was probably the right result in a game we really should have won but easily could have lost on Sunday. There’s not much point in covering old ground and a delightfully accurate match report from The Cannon should do the trick in that area. What is worth saying is that I think it’s great that we’re still in the competition and I’m extremely confident that we’ll get the right result at the Emirates.
And that’s really it for today. It’s a bit short and sweet at the moment, what with Australia day and everything yesterday, but hopefully things should pick up with the signing of Arshavin and the Everton game tomorrow.
Cheers, and have a good one.
