I've just come back from 8 months in Russia and whilst he may be one of the most naturally-gifted players in the Russian league, I'm not sure what he'll bring to the side unless BMJ wants to play him behind the front two because he's a bit of a midget. Also saw him at Wembley for Russia - fairly threatening there but nothing to write home about. We've got Keano - no need for Arshavin

Perhaps he's being bought in to offer the creativity in the centre that we're lacking. But I still think it's a defensive minded midfielder that we're lacking more than anything.

It looks like Gilberto Silva may be becoming available... :shifty:

That's exactly the sort of player we need. Sadly I think Gilberto may be scared of JJ after he got completely snapped in the last game that JJ played for the barcodes :grin:

Thats not Spursking, SS57. He lists his interest as 'rock music'. Surely SK is more of a 'Gansta Rap' fan.

I have seen him play quite a few times - for both Russia and Zenit, and I have talked about him and rated him as a good player. I rate him as one of Russia's best players.
