As many of you already know, anytime Andrei (or Andrey) Arshavin opens his mouth, unintelligable awesomeness dribbles out like so many marbles or chicken nuggets. In this bit for last weekend's episode of Soccer AM, the little Russian talked about his Arsenal teammates. And while I couldn't understand a good 90 percent of it, I loved every second. Here's a rundown of some of Arshavin's finer points:
-Sol Campbell is "double like me" or, twice the size of Andrei. Which is funny because it's true.
-Cesc Fabregas is slow and Andrei won't let him forget it.
-Mikael Silvestre "looks smart and clever," but is he? Who knows.
-Sol Campbell will not succumb to initiation rituals.
-Andrei says he has the worst taste in music because he's the only one who doesn't have an iPod. A line of logic that follows neatly with his anti-Blackberry stance, because who is he going to email? Bendtner? "How are you?" Hahaha our technology is beneath him.
-Bendtner is also awful at dressing himself.
-Emmanuel Eboue and Bacary Sagna dance naked in the dressing room. Which Andrei finds hilarious.
-He didn't want to say who takes the longest in the shower, but ... it's Jack Wilshere. His hesitation makes it sound weird. Probably best to stop there.
Once again, if Andrei Arshavin had his own television channel, I would watch it until my eyes bleed.
