They`ve been longing for more goals for a long time now, not just recently. Arshavin will hopefully ( for them. ) help them and get the goals flowing for them. It`s a matter if he will settle or not, that is always a question mark on new signings, he may take his time to settle but he will in the long run.
Well said:) next season (with champions league football and stars staying plus a DM and CB in summer) can see them back challenging for title

id say he will do well with Arsenal he suits there play and i doubt he will be over awed by the step up to the EPL he looks like he has a decent build that he will hold his own in dirty tackles.

Well Nasri did score twice against us in Goonerville:) fair enough they have been found wanting for goals recently but all teams go thru a famine of goals! im sure arshavin will be a good signing in the long run
Good points.
Arshavin is a great signing. Arsenal are on the slump thankfully and they will need
a LOT more than Arse-shaving to help them get near the Prem trophy again. It will be
interesting to see how he gets on. I think he is a classy player, but will take his
time to settle in England. Im not worried about Arsenal though. They still need a
world class DM, or they are never gonna compete.

Coppell slams transfer 'sham'
Reading boss angered by Arshavin deal


Coppell: Unhappy

Reading manager Steve Coppell has branded Andrey Arshavin's deadline-beating move to Arsenal as a 'total sham'.

The Russia international's switch to Emirates Stadium from Zenit St Petersburg was not officially ratified until almost 24 hours after the 5pm deadline on Monday.

Premier League officials granted the Gunners an extension due to the bad weather on Monday and were satisfied that an agreement was in place for the talented playmaker in time.

But Coppell has been left distinctly unimpressed by the whole protracted saga and claims that the transfer window favours the top teams.

Ridiculous

He said: "The whole thing is a total sham.

"You are looking for the governing body to show leadership and you want rules to be rules rather than rules to be bent.

"The whole transfer window and its policing are on a par with each other.

"The transfer window benefits the wealthier clubs. Why bother with the pretence?

"Now we go into the even bigger pretence of the emergency loan system, which is ridiculous.

"It always has been and always will be. It's just a way of bending the rules."




I can't help but agree with him there. :cool:
