Andrey Arshavin has branded Arsenal’s season as “pitiful”. A bit harsh, Arsh.
The Meerkat told The Sun: “There was nothing special last season for me to think back about. The season was normal – even pitiful.”
The Gunners won the same amount of trophies as Stoke and Blackburn, admittedly, but it was hardly a pitiful campaign.
In contrast, Arshavin praised champions Chelsea, in particular compatriot Yuri Zhirkov.
He said: “I am happy for Yuri Zhirkov, who won the Premier League with Chelsea.
“They deserved the trophy, as they were the strongest during the season.”
Hmm. Hmmmmm (strokes chin, says “Chinny Reckon”)… I wonder about Arshavin – whether his heart’s in it at Arsenal. Would be prefer to be a club team-mate of Zhirkov, for instance? He doesn’t appear to get on well with many of his current club-mates, I reckon.
