I'm nearly certain you probably didn't know anything about Arshavin before Euro 2008?!Please? Always knew he was quality and I was on my knees for Fergie to sign him.
But anyway, we didn't need to splash out on him after signing Berbatov for £30M and then having the whole Carlos Tevez saga where we didn't know if we were signing him or not.. We signed 2 Serbians who can play out wide and Fergie still has to get Nani to start performing since he cost a large sum of money a couple of seasons back..! We didn't need him to be honest.. Even though he's a far better player than Tevez..!
