The Lyrics

It's finally official ... Andrey Arshavin will not be back with Arsenal after this season. So much promise and so little delivery ...
Andrey Arshavin

He came to us in January
For a record transfer fee
Captain of the Russian national team
A football superstar supreme
And the hero of Euro two thousand eight
Couldn’t wait
To sign Andrey Arshavin

Then came the game at Liverpool
He made Reina look the fool
Into silence he stunned the Kop
He started scoring and he couldn’t stop
And the tale was told of the winger who could always score
And he scored four
Four for Andrey Arshavin

But time passed by and he did fade
Could not fulfill promises made
Faded in and out of games
Out of breath and out of shape
And he stood and he watched as the football passed him by
Waved bye bye
Bye bye to Andrey Arshavin

Now his play’s become so poor
Swansea match was the last straw
Won’t run and cannot find the net
Can’t bother to break out a sweat
And the board said, the terms of the transfer must be written by the end of day
Please send him away
It’s over for Andrey Arshavin

Not in to soccer at all, and never heard of the guy, but this was a fun read - what this site is all about.

Well, i do follow football, and I also know who comrade Arshavin is. A flop of the highest magnitude, spent too much time believing his own good press! Smeg et al, this was very accurate and amusing.

Lifeliver & Peregrin - thank you for the kind words!

I don't know how I missed this one the first time around, especially being an Arsenal fan. It seems he scored only 5 goals for the club, the 4 at Anfield and that 1 against Barcelona. It's like he was never really there.
