    I’ve always been a big fan of Arshavin, even though I hate the big four

    LooKs like your arse-shavin’ finally paid off, Voyeur.

  9. Pretty sweet goal. The guy is like a young more twinkly Paul Scholes. Scholsey would have hammard that in with his head first time through the other players back!
