Arshavin the perfect replacement for Scholes - "Fergie, Fergie - sign him on"

Russian star Arshavin lit up Manchester last night in the UEFA Cup final when producing the game's only genuine moments of class, Zenit St Petersburg won two-nil, Arshavin was at the heart of both goals.

In truth, the match itself was like too many finals, with so much at stake, not that memorable and there were few technical skills on view. However, the Zenit number ten did more than enough to ensure that Europe's biggest clubs will be making enquiries about his availability this summer.

Rangers huffed and puffed their way through the match, but they had no answer to Arshavin who once again proved that he is the man for the big occasion. England fans will no doubt recall that he was the architect of the Three Lions downfall in the Euro 2008 qualifiers.

Paul Scholes is not unlike Arshavin in his style of play, both have the ability to unlock tight defences with killer passes, the 24-year-old Russian would be an ideal long-term replacement for the United midfield general.

As the song goes "Fergie, Fergie sign him on".


  1. Arshavin was awesome. Zenit St.Petersburg deserved to win. I wouldn't be happy if Arshavin landed in Manchester this summer.

  2. arshavin is not 24
    he was born on May 29, 1981

    which means he will be 27 at the end of this month.

  3. they said he was 24 in commentary...

  4. I just heard about him. Went through the WikiPedia and found out he is 27 (born 1981).

    Not sure about commentary though, because I didn't watch the match.
