    Does it? He seems to be complaining about their fouling. The 'picking flowers' bit could mean that the Arsenal players were spending too much time on the floor after being fouled. He's also critical of Wolves. It's hard to tell with the translation but that seems to be an annoyed Arshavin talking rather than one who relished the battle.

    Of course.

    I'm pretty sure he didn't write that.
     
  4. No he wasn't. He lost.

    No, it's a rather standard saying in Russian meaning "football is a physical game, which happens to be rough from time to time. So, no point complaining about it". We also say: "You play football, not chess!":)

    Those type of tackles where players go in studs up are disgraceful and they happen faaar too often these days. Cowardly.

    Most British teams are just a bunch of brutish athletes with terrible attitudes

    The irony is, so many of the great chess players have been Russians.

    This would be a great post, although your statements during the last World Cup require a little "wink wink nudge nudge" factor. :wink: :wink: (There does not appear to be a "nudge smiley.")

    Stupid tackle. The gif in slow-mo doesn't do it any justice.

    Nobody noticed the last question he answered? To paraphrase he will reply honestly after the Everton game and after 'I sort some other events in my life'. Not to over speculate( :roll: ) but does this mean he could be signing his contract renewal this week maybe?

    Finally something nice said about Fabregas:


    Meanwhile, Wolves defender Stephen Ward, 25, has forgiven Cesc Fabregas for his horror tackle on Wednesday.

    Ward was carried off on a stretcher after being scythed down by Arsenal's skipper in Wolves' 2-0 defeat at Molineux.

    The sliding tackle left a gash in Ward's shin that needed five stitches.

    But the left-back said: "There's no hard feelings. It's just a mistimed tackle.

    "I appreciate him apologising. It shows the kind of player he is - these things happen in football."

    It was a bad tackle and he's been rightfully criticised for it. What's annoying is that it wasn't even one of the three worst tackles committed in the game, yet it's the only one people seem to talk about. When you run around kicking people all the time you're bound to provoke a reaction at some point.

    Arshavin retracted his leg from that incident as well, otherwise if he stands full power on it his leg would definitely be broken.

    One thing I like about Arshavin is how brave he is at times when he is in pain. Its obvious sometimes he was in huge pain but when plays goes to him he would rather get up and play through pain.

    Shava's not one for acting up after a bad tackle.
    He's quite robust.
    He has a reputation for being lazy which may or may not be justified but he's definitely not fearful or fragile.

    The uproar about Cesc's tackle is laughable really when you consider some of the incidents this week i.e Essien with a two-footed stamp, Barton punching Pedersen.

    :) On FF Lee Dixon highlighted the fact that for balance the BBC should have shown the Henry tackle.

    There was also a short interview with Theo and Cesc where they defended our GKs, praised each other, said Eboue was the team joker.

    Cesc said he'd most like to have dinner with Zidane and Theo said he'd choose John Barnes.

    I do wonder, has there ever been a longer interview with no mention of Eboue being the joker? :lol:

    In the same interview, when asked who is the loudmouth or beats his chest when coming out of the tunnel, Cesc laughs and says, 'No no no no. No one does that. We're not that English. We are European. Hehehe'.

    Sorry for bumping this thread, but I was pleased to a tiny little detail about how Fabregas acted just before Chamakh scored our first goal.

    As Rosicky delivered the ball to Song, Fabregas and Wilshere started running toward the Wolves box.
    As Song was about to cross the ball, I noticed Fabregas telling Wilshere (with hand gesture) to stay there "in case the ball is lost and a counter would commence", so there is not much area left uncovered.

    You may find our first goal on footytube, but it goes to show you how much of an intelligent lad and forward thinker is Cesc. These fine details are true captain material. ;)

    Don't think you have to be too intelligent or captain to do that.
