At the start of every season, the Fox Soccer Report has their on-air staff try to guess how the different clubs will finish in the Premier League table. The clueless and Canadian group of TV talent never have any idea what is going on and always end up scratching their heads at the end of the season when Liverpool finishes outside the top two. Still, even someone like the show’s analyst Bobby McMahon, who does know what he’s talking about most of the time, gets the end-of-season blushes when his predictions turn out to be wrong. Can one really predict what will happen in such a crazy (see the chicken) and uncertain league like the EPL? Maybe not, but that doesn’t mean the writers here at FourFiveTwo can’t give it a shot and try to look like we know what we’re talking about!
Today we bring you a guest post by friend of the blog and Arsenal fan Blankzy
The pint-sized Russian has finally gone home to Mother Russia. Yes, it is only on loan to Zenit but it would be naïve to say he might actually return to London. Sadly, Tomas Rosicky and Aaron Ramsey are now the only surviving members of the Lesbian Lookalikes Club that is the Arsenal midfield, having already lost the pasty-white, androgynous Samir Nasri to Manchester City. Fortunately, Mikel Arteta’s eyebrows make him an ideal replacement.
When speaking of Andrey Arshavin, Arsenal fans love to reminisce about that unforgettable night back on April 21, 2009, when we all watched the little Ruski score four goals at Anfield; the first player to do so since 1946. After that magical display, Andrey was always going to be a disappointment for the supporters. Arshavin’s genius gradually fizzled out over the next few years and his performances became more and more frustrating. Now that he’s gone, I urge all fans of the sport to remember him not for his inconsistencies on the pitch, but for his downright hilarious brilliance off the pitch.
