Arshavin Is Happy, Sad & Tired

Arshavin Is Happy, Sad & Tired

Arsenal new boy, Andrey Arshavin felt a whole host of emotions as he made his Gunners debut in a bore draw at home to Sunderland Saturday passed.

Wenger's charges struggled to break down a defensive Sunderland and and suffered their 3rd successive 0-0 draw in the league.

However the game saw Double A's long awaited debut as the Russian got his first hour of Premier League football under his belt after he was withdrawn on the 60 minute mark.

The wily playmaker was happy to play, sad to draw and a bit knackered at the end.

'I enjoyed my debut in front of so many spectators, but am disappointed we did not get the result,' said the midfielder

'I think it was not so much of a problem for me on the pitch, but Sunderland played very defensively. All of their players stayed in the box. It was very difficult for us.'

'We tried to play for a goal and had chances, but we were not happy. I am doing everything I can to be fully fit as soon as possible,'

'If I had played in the Russian Premier League, I think I would have been okay, but the English Premier League is a different speed - it is quicker.'

A good debut from him nevertheless. One can only imagine what he will do once fully match fit.

This guy oozes class. We only need to get the balance of the team right and then bingo. I look forward to seeing Dudu, RVP, Tommy Gun, Cesc, AA and Nasri with whoever the rest of d team is made up of. If these guys can gel and remain match fit and injury free then next year looks exciting already

The best player on the, and he was not even fit! When he bets up to speed with the usual Arshavin, he will be our best player.
