Arshavin in his London home. (Arsenal.com)
After three years and a recent run of poor form, Andrei Arshavin, everyone's favorite misogynistic women's clothing designer is being sent back to Zenit St. Petersburg by Arsenal. It's only a loan spell that will last until the end of the season, but it seems this could be the end of Arshavin's stay in London. So we've decided to compile some of our best memories from one of the most entertaining footballers' time in the Premier League.
