Recycled Arshavin Quotes and a Sorry Willie

I thought I recognised the Arshavin quotes about Arsenal needing additional players to win anything and it seems I was right. Arsene Wenger confirmed at today's press conference that Arshavin made these remarks after van Persie got injured. You can bet he feels differently about our chances of winning the league now.

The quotes were recycled. They've been all over the media because lazy hacks who never let the facts get in the way of a good story repeated them vebatim without checking the original source, so it's hard to know where they originated. But I did a bit of digging and it seems like TribalFootball were the ones who did the original recycling. Surprise, surprise!

Arsene Wenger also said in the same press conference that while we are playing two games a week he'll be too busy to negotiate any new contracts, including William Gallas', but that generally the negotiations with Gallas are going well. He also said that while Gallas won't be fit for the Brum and Barca games, he may be fit for the game after that, against Wolves.

So it seems I owe William Gallas an apology, having intimated in an earlier post that his injury was not genuine.

Sorry Willie!
