    ...and so the summer of bullshit tabloid reports begins.

    Wait, so '****ers' isn't censored? Nice.

    The quoted salary is probably just bullshit. This is the first time I've seen anyone suggesting that he's on 80K per week. He supposedly took a pay cut to join us and he earned a little less than 60K per week in Russia I think. I did the math a while ago when some financial record revealed how much he earned pre-tax.

    I saw it earlier but I have no idea where he said it, why he would say something like that, and how the fans heard about it.

    Or if it was just a bunch of made up quotes to stir trouble.

    edited title to make it a little more censored.

    Nothing wrong with that. Most of us here are.

    He seems a player with his head screwed on and as such, surely he wouldn't make such a rookie mistake as not to check the salary he goes home with.

    What kind of annoying, hate generating bollocks this is?

    As far as I know the fans love Arshavin and nobody said he is greedy. The Mirror should be sued for making up ****.


    Reminds me how I'd like to blow up the whole ****ing office of the tabloid papers. They are living off other people's fame by making these up and making profit from selling the ****.

    I think the quotes are real. But they're at least a couple of weeks old. I read them a while ago in one of the many translated interviews from Russian posters in the lobby.

    I remember thinking that it won't take long before those quotes are picked up. I'm surprised it took this long, both for the media and posters here.

    In fairness, it wont be just Arshavin looking for a contract re-negotiated if true. The recent tax changes in the UK have had a apretty big impact on players net salaries - the situation changed from when he negotiated his salary prior to the transfer

    Good article in fairness. I cant see too many players being happy with a big cut in their salary which is human nature - not particularly greed. As for agents..what a shower of f*****s

    Yeah, but as an investor, surely you take into consideration the possibility of things like this, especially in today's climate?!

    So Andrei wants more money. I suppose he's holding the club to ransom then. Maybe he'll be booed next season. Yeah right, fickle, hypocritical ****s.

    Cheer up dude, it could be worse. They could be upset at a player for doing his job consistently like Denilson.

    That's the similar pattern of new signings. Most will complain that they didn't expect this or that. But Arshavin has chosen a dangerous area to complain about wages. He is probably among 5 best-paid players in the club.

    Frankly I am worried that slowly he is showing his true self of after Euro 2008 when he was begging any club to go get him.I'm afraid that if he keeps the current form, the at end of next season, we will see the back of him toward Barca, ManCity or Inter

    Good times are gone now, when ****s like Reyes were complainign about the weather.. :)

    Put in his shoes, I would do the exact same thing. I once went through a tax change that messed up my salary big time because the govt starting taxing all my allowances. It can really mess around with your financial planning, so I support Arshavin as long as he isn't looking to gouge the club.

    I go overseas to earn more, they tax me more, I end up earning less. Of course I'm gonna be a bit peeved. It's not all about money but you're already being nice to take a pay cut to play for a club, but to take an effective pay cut again half a year later?

    Poor little Shava, how ever will he survive on a weekly wage millions of people in Britain make in a week.

    This is greed. Same greed Ade has. Don't pretend its anything else. Just accept that people are greedy and we don't care if Shavas greedy because he's great. Its that simple.
