Arshavin says he will not be wearing the number 13 shirt for Arsenal


By 1970’s Gooner

The English press has been releasing details about the transfer of Andrei Arshavin to Arsenal, which we first reported on Arsenal Analysis as “a done deal”.

Some of you had doubted the hot news we brought you but that is your prerogative of course.

Apart from the transfer fee (some are saying £12m rising to £15m with bonuses, others put it at £10m rising to £13m with bonuses, which will be paid, by the way, after Arshavin plays in 100 matches for Arsenal) the pressmen have in their wisdom published Arshavin’s squad number as the “unlucky” 13.

Again they may have got it wrong!

And the one to believe on this issue is Andrei Arshavin himself. He has stated in his personal site that he will wear the number 23 for Arsenal.

No one in the Arsenal squad has this number allocated to them and it appears that Andrei does not want to start his Arsenal career with a “handicap”.

What if the FA don't approve of the move?

If you're going to photochop a picture of his shirt, at least make it the current kit.

We know the board are tight, but I'm sure they can stump up for a new shirt for him!
