i don't know what arsene wenger exactly seek and needed in the squad. there's already samir nasri for the same position with arshavin. so maybe this is not really needed by arsenal (at least in my opinion) but maybe the deal will effect to the EPL tittle's race...

I've been following this for a long time (actually ever since the beginning of EURO 2008), especially as my best friend is a huge fan of his. =P Seeing as I'm a Tottenham Hotspur fan (and let's just say, not an Arsenal fan ;-)), I'm a bit disappointed because I'm sure Redknapp would have jumped at the opportunity to buy him in the summer transfer window - I'm sure that Pavlyuchenko and he could have transferred their EURO 2008 success to the team, and that they could have been an amazing pair up front (and of course, owned Arsenal badly). They could also help each other find their feet, which I'm assuming they'll do now, but to less an extent seeing that they're in rival teams. I also think that there's something "fishy" with his singing after the window was closed as the weather had nothing to do with it, but that just may be my evil side talking. =P He is a great player but he won't be an instant success as I think Wenger hopes he will, but he will eventually become good. To me, he's in a rival team now and, because I consider him an awesome person and player, I don't hope he turns out to be a flop as I would for anyone else there - nor any excess luck though. I would have loved him to join Tottenham and thought that he could have perhaps, better adjusted there and had better partnership, but alas, c'est la vie.
