Arshavin: 'I Am Gooner'

Arshavin: 'I Am Gooner'

A grinning Andrei Arshavin gave an interview to Sky Sports reporter Brian Swanson outside Ashburton Grove today in which he exclaimed 'I am Gooner'.

The epic transfer was made official today after a tense wait as the Premier League ratified the £blah Million transfer.

Speaking with reporters in, let's be honest, better English than mine, Arshavin was clearly delighted with his transfer and that the horrors of the past month were now behind him now that he is 'Gooner'.

Speaking of his ordeal the Russian said 'I am happy to be here. I became Gooner some time ago and I'm happy now. I will do my best.'

'It was very hard days for me, but now it doesn't matter, now I am Gooner, that is what is important.'

When asked about the possibility of making his debut in the North London derby this weekend he said: 'I must be ready by Friday or Saturday, but I am not fit now. It will be decided by Arsene if I can play or not.'

I think I speak for almost every Arsenal fan when I say we're as happy as Andrei is that he 'is Gooner'.

Spot on Rocky. I didnt see this interview, but I see watch the one on the Arsenal site, and his final words to the Arsenal fans were "Trust in me, and trust in Arsenal". A nice touch to the interview I thought. Also, he said "I am not friends with Pavlyuchenko" one week before the NLD and he knows which side his bread is buttered. Smart lad.
