Arsenal loan players make an impression at the Euros

It may be sacrilegious to make such a comment, but I’ll make it all the same. As a Gooner I really find it hard to be too excited about the European Championship, the World Cup or any international competition.

Sure I enjoy watching football, because that’s what those of us who love the beautiful game do far too frequently. I am a proud Englishman and want my national team to do well, but I find it difficult to cheer on an England team containing the likes of Terry, Cole and Parker; players I despise.

Arshavin favourite to beat Rosicky tonight!

Russia and the Czech Republic are due to go head to head in the EURO 2012’s opening day, as they both will try to do their best to qualify into the knockout stages of the tournament.

Arsenal have once again sent most of their best players off on international duty, and although we have yet seen the likes of Robin Van Persie, Walcott, Chamberlain or Koscielny, we can be happy to see that the Gunners are ruling the opening day of the European Championships.

Agent – Arshavin is STILL not leaving Arsenal!

After his annus horriblis at Arsenal in 2011, it seemed very likely that Andrei Arshavin would be moving on in January in search of regular first-team action ahead of the Euro 2012 tournament.

His agent, Phil Smith, revealed a couple of weeks ago that the Russian billionaire at Anzhi Makhachkala had made a tentative approach for Arshavin but his client wasn’t interested.

Lately the rumours have been surrounding a return to Arshavin’s old club Zenit St Petersburg, but Smith has felt the need to yet again deny that Arshavin is going anywhere at all. Smith said: “Officially there wasn’t an approach and Arshavin doesn’t have an offer either,”
