    i’ve read that article as well. i’m not too sure it was confirmation of the signing though…

    good to see that fat russian is good for something

  2. joshgooner says:

    oh yes!

  3. Claude says:

    Believe it when I see it mate, but good work all the same

  4. Jullsan says:

    Nice if it’s true.

  5. goonio says:

    Blimey! He will need time with the fitness coach and the optician when we sign him, he looks really overweight. Doh! thats a pic of Usmanov!

  6. Ed says:

    That makes your last articlae a pile of p*ss then, so why should i believe this. You talk sh*t!!!!!!!

  7. Joe says:

    You realise Life.ru is about as official as me drawing a picture of a clown, publishing it on the internet and claiming it as evidence that he’s signed. However saying that… I still think he’ll sign fairly soon.

  8. gunnersmate says:

    I really hope this is true, our club is in real need of a lift. But somehow I think this may just be another loss leader!

  9. Caknucklehead says:

    well, I hope this is true, that would take the edge off!

  10. Spud says:

    Does that mean you are going to pick your toys up now ?
    Lets wait for the official statement by AFC first, but if its true then good, if not then see my first post !

  11. athlon says:

    It will be nice if it’s announced at arsenal.com

  12. paul boyle says:

    don’t talk shit

  13. Brady says:

    Come on that is no confirmation. Why do you bloggers all get us excited then we come to the link and its never an actual confirmation. What’s the point ?

  14. antifan says:

    Oh nooo!

  15. Harry says:

    Do you not feel a bit stupid publishing this article 10 mins after writing “Arsenal never wanted to sign Arshavin, it was all spin…..”??

  16. nickynicknick says:

    Be afraid. If this is true Usmanov will hold this as a bargaining chip for another day and god knows what he will want then. We’ll probably have to play in commie red strip…..oh we already do….or sell the rights to our stadium to the highest bidder……oh we already did……..or spend all our profits on a swnaky development for the directors………..shit…..we’re already f**ked.

  17. IDLE says:

    Arshavin will lead us to victory on the 8th, and will help us great the champions league this year.
    It will be magnificant.

  18. sheggs says:

    This better b true gooner…….

  19. Paul says:

    What a joke of a site.

    I hope if this is true you post a massive pubic apology saying sorry to Wenger and the board for your outrageous lies you printed about them!

  20. Ben Mills says:

    Its all SPIN AND LIES FROM OUR LIAR OF A MANAGER

    WEAK MINDED FOOLS!

  21. bergy says:

    im dont trust this source

    only beliveve it once arsenal.com shows it

  22. Arron says:

    Next on the list is Kaka and Messi!!

  23. chris says:

    hmm. i will believe it when i see it on arsenal.com…
    theres been way to many ‘arshavin signs’ articles already

  24. luke says:

    if this is true it is supperb because he is one of my favourite players and he will score goals and help us win the league the champions league and the fa cup and we have also got theo walcott tomas rosicky cesc fabregas and eduardo to come back all fantastic players

  25. realgooner says:

    Wenger doesn’t care anymore about Arsenal.he keeps the players that we don’t need {eboue} and let the players that we need go.he doesn’t want to buy while he knows we don’t get cesc back till april.

  26. Danish Gooner says:

    But i cant believe that has happened and how Ebeenezer scrooge wouldnt pay that extra penny for him,laughable.So now his money is all right is that what you are all saying ???? Remember how you all lambasted Abramovich ???????????????????

  27. Charles says:

    Really difficult to believe yet. Will keep my ears to the ground whole night just to confirm.

  28. rasak says:

    pls let this be true or trouble will bargain alot for this act

  29. THEEEO says:

    The Russian version of The Sun

  30. Sloughburger says:

    If it was true so many other sites would have confirmed it by now. Fingers crossed though!!

  31. Joshwaaaaa says:

    The other stupid article was written by Gonzo, and this one was written by thegoonerforum. If you guys got your heads out of your arses for 1 min then maybe you’d notice that. However I do think that you should get rid of that article TheGoonerForum, Gonzo has ruined your site.

  32. Phillipe Senderos says:

    but I’m confused… I thought the arshavin transfer was all a spin?!?!?!?!?
    you’re the weak minded person, your blog is useless and arshavin hasn’t signed so shut the hell up and dream up another crappy conspiracy theory.

  33. jakobson says:

    I’ve looked at the life.ru in the hope there would be a translate option, which there wasn’t. It looks like a Heat magazine type website and so hard to gauge authenticity. This story looks like it’s going the way of the alonso deal, which following yesterday’s dismal display is doubly disappointing. I know we should feel grateful that Rosicky is on the way back, but when (if ever in reality) and how long for?! Eduardo is getting closer though which is a relief.
    Is there any truth in the monday eve deadline? I thought it was Saturday. Then it was Sunday and now it is supposed to be decided one way or another by tonight.
    By the way, why would City sell Richards for 7 mill?

  34. Greg says:

    Just looking at life.ru, and it looks like a Russian version of the Sun or NOTW, and we all know how much journalistic integrity those sites have.

  35. james says:

    I feared this may be the case when the fatman was allegedly involved a week or so ago. Remember that this man is essentially evil (if i go into that further your blog may get lawyers involved as have many previous blogs, but I am sure google can help if you want a bit of information on his background and various charges levelled against him), supports Man Utd, and does NOT have the clubs best interest at heart.
    Most fans know this already, so as he continues to buy up Arsenal shares, there was always going to be a moment where he does something to attempt to win the fans over. His connection with Zenit’s owners always made this the perfect opportunity for him.
    I appreciate that most stories on this blog are made up crap, but if this happens to be the true one, PLEASE gooners don’t be fooled by this man. don’t view him as some kind of saviour who stepped in to help the club he loves.

    Also, Arshavin would not be eligible for champions league this season

  36. Sharkey says:

    A real cunt of an ‘Arsenal website’ this one. Weak and feeble minded, not to mention schizophrenic !!!

  37. lwason says:

    harry why do u talk like dat watz wrong with that story,how about arsharvin signs haven’t u taken a look at that.

  38. danygooner says:

    this article is shit n he just said wenger and the board were fooling us. shit u mate. where did you get this crap n tell me the source of this story.

  39. Jay says:

    I thought Arshavin could play for us as Zenit are no longer in the competition. I thought the rule was that we can register 1 player who has played in a Uefa competition this season, aslong as his previous club are longer in that competition? Hence Huntlaar has been registered by Madrid? Real had a hissy fit as they could only register the 1, meaning Diarra couldnt be…

  40. Merse-10 says:

    Hang on a minute, i thought Arsene and the board were liars and it was all a sham.

    Truth is, you don’t know any more than any other fan yet you choose this is a platform to spout shit and claim an exclusive! lol

  41. adam says:

    BEFORE CRITICISING THIS ARTICLE, APPRECIATE THAT THE LINK TO THE SOURCE IS PROVIDED. IT MAY NOT BE TRUE SO ITS UP TO U IF U TRUST IT.

  42. shkumbin says:

    U ARSENAL FANS THAT USUALY HAVE WROTE HERE ANYBADWORD,NOW HAVE TO CONSIDER UR THOUGHTS AGAIN.I ALWAYS HAVE THOUGHT USMANOV IS NOT A BAD MAN,HE HAS HIS BUSINESS CALLED “WHITE & RED”,AFTER THAT HE BECAME AN ARSENAL FAN AND INVESTED AT ARSENAL.I JUST DID NOT UNDERSTAND SOME OF ARSENAL FANS WHO HATED THIS MAN.AND DIDN’T KNOW WHY?AND KNOW WHEN HE IS HELPING ARSENAL TO GET ARSHAVIN,OH YEAH GOOD “VIVA USMANOVE”.

  43. Andrew says:

    Totally not true….how can anyone come along and start to change the contract negotiations. Utter crap. Not saying that he might have some ‘inside’ influence…but officially there is no chance.

  44. Paul says:

    Here we go again. Yawn!

  45. james says:

    Firstly is is “Red and White”, not ” White and Red”.
    Secondly there are numerous photos of him around in front of his beloved Man Ure’s poster
    Thirdly, try reading things like this:
    http://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2007/09/alisher_usmanov.html and this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alisher_Usmanov and see how he tried to close down numerous Arsenal blogs that dared to say a word against him

    then shove your caps lock where the sun don’t shine 🙂

  46. Eric says:

    Oh, great.. Arse-shaving will take 12 months to adapt to the Premier League, upon which time he’ll become injury prone and ask for a transfer to Barcelona (his one true love, he’ll claim).

  47. liam says:

    i’ll belive it when i log on to arsenal.com and see him holding up and arsenal shirt

    MOLDOVAN STAR CLAIMS HE’S BETTER THAN “FAT” ARSHAVIN

    AP-BALTI (Monday) The hottest young football talent in Eastern European football, 16-year-old Moldovan star Masal Bugduv has slammed Arsenal for signing Andrei Arshavin last night.
    Bugduv has been tracked for the past six months by the cream of Europe’s footballing talent and seemed set to sign for Arsenal or Barcelona in August.
    However, last week he was meeting with legal representatives to launch a massive libel action against hundreds of world newspapers who claimed that he did not exist.
    “I was a victim of a great hoax, but the hoax was that I do exist and the Russian hoaxers convinced other newspapers that I did not. Now, Arsenal have signed Arshavin, probably put off by the stories about my non-existence. Now every time I look at that fat Russian, I will cry in Moldova because he stole my dream move.
    “My agent Sergei Yelikov is working on the massive legala ction and I will make much money but I want to earn money through football not through court cases and lawyers.”
    Agedejust 16, he has already played four times for his country’s senior team, setting up two goals in the process.
    He has been described as the finest young player to come out of Eastern European football since Gheorge Hagi and scouts have said that the strapping teen is able to walk straight into many first teams in the Premiership.
    Born on April 14, 1992, he shot to fame playing for his native FC Olimpia B?l?i for whom he scored a hattrick on his competitive debut in an Adzi Cup match in December 2007.
    Bagduv became the youngest player capped at that level by his country and he went on to make his senior international debut aged just 16 years and 44 days when he came on for the national team in their 2-2 draw with Armenia in a friendly international in Tiraspol on May 28.

    “goonerforum would like to apologise to Arsene Wenger, the Board and the Fans for posting shit on a daily basis” should be the heading for your next blog…

    Mr Gooner(lacking in credability and integrity)Forum suffers from severe gullability from tabloid sources and worse still puts more spin on his plagerised works than a labour politician looking for reasons to invade Iraq.

    Here’s some more headlines you should think about using…

    The news of the world is my bible…I have no decent input of my own…I love being a newsnow whore

    We’ll wait for him to be displayed on a real news source until then we can keep ridiculing your desperate attempts to sound “in the know”.

    Usmanov cannot be part of the transfer talks or payement of any tranfer fee or salary to Arshavin as he is not part of the Arsenal management. It will be totally illegal. He could however have some influence behind the scenes it helping the deal go through.
