“I want to play at a good European club and I want to prove how good I am. I think it is a distant prospect that Zenit will ever be as big as the likes of Real Madrid or Juventus. It will take some time and Zenit must win many titles first. But recently the club have been progressing. The main thing is that the management should have willingness and players should be provided with opportunities.” Okay, so we already knew that – yes we didn’t learn much from this. But hey, in Arshavin’s eyes, we’re not even a big club! And yes, he said the only club he wants to go to is Barcelona… anywho – it may be the difference between 4th, 5th or 6th… On to other news and Ade still believes we can win the title. Despite his fumbling, despite his very poor form, despite his want to leave in summer and despite the inability for him to score the “simple” goals he was scoring last season, he’s still positive about winning the league:
“To try and come back and win the title, we know it is going to be very difficult, we know it is going to be tough. It is tough for us, it is tough for Liverpool, it is tough for Chelsea and it is tough for Manchester United. “We are 10 points behind, so if we can win three or four games straight away we have a chance to come back. The most important thing is to keep on going. We have to keep our dreams alive and keep going. We will do everything to make it possible.” “We have a chance there [in the champions league]. We have a very tough game against Roma but we believe that we can do something.”And Ade also supported William Gallas and what he said earlier in the season.
“There is some truth in what he said. Someone had to say these things, to make each person face up to their responsibilities. If he had said nothing, where would we be today? Gallas has always been like that – he has experience, he has won titles, played in a World Cup final. He doesn’t throw these thoughts around lightly. He said something because it was necessary to do it. He is indispensable to the team. He is Arsenal’s rock – his behaviour since the armband was taken off him proves that.”One thing that Ade has forgotten is that he was one of the players that Gallas was referring to. I think sometimes some of these things are better left behind closed doors, but maybe it’s a little hard to keep everything hidden… Okie dokie… let me know your thoughts… Til tomorrow…]]>
