What's good about Arshavin is his work-rate and versatility, can play on either wing, off a striker, or pulling the strings in the middle. He's like Milner but with pace and a better eye for a pass and captain of his country =) We are just crying out for more pace on the wing and more creativity and Arshavin would give us both. Until we hear Sam talking about him or Riquelme then I won't get my hopes up but fingers crossed...
