Arshaaaaaavinnnnnnnn…yet again at anfield

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Please rise for the one and only Arshavin…I do not care how the match was played till the first half and whenever Arsenal looked really pathetic in the match…but what a comeback by this team and what a finish from the Russian super star. For him Anfield is a good stage to shine after scoring four in the same fixture last year. His exquisite finish was the difference in the end.

The first half was so bad for Arsenal that Wenger had to give a piece of his mind to the whole team, shocking everyone from Cesc to Vermaelen. So we went away to a top four side and were one goal down at half time and came back the winner at the end of the match…so this should settle a lot of nerves. Having said that the biggest challenge this year would be to get 3 points out of the away fixtures at Villa Park, Craven Cottage, White Hart Lane etc. Which means that the Gunners should get all the three points in the next match at Burnley.

World Cup draw tomorrow

Tomorrow evening the draw for the greatest sports show in the world will be held. The winner takes about 31 million dollars with the teams beaten in the group stage taking home about 9 million dollars. The World Cup 2010 draw could surely group certain powerhouses as a couple of European star teams find themselves unseeded for this tournament, namely France and Portugal.

Pots for Friday’s draw: eight groups of four countries to be drawn, each group containing one country from each pot.

Pot 1 (seeds): South Africa, Brazil, Spain, Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Argentina, England

Pot 2 (Asia, Oceania and North/Central America): Japan, South Korea, North Korea, Australia, New Zealand, United States, Mexico, Honduras

Pot 3 (Africa and South America): Ivory Coast, Ghana, Cameroon, Nigeria, Algeria, Paraguay, Chile, Uruguay

Pot 4 (Europe): France, Portugal, Slovenia, Switzerland, Greece, Serbia, Denmark, Slovakia

For the last WC I did make my predictions and got it right with respect to the pre-quarterfinalists but after that got it wrong. So surely after the draw is made I will try my luck again and maybe you all can make your comments on that.
So till then….
