Fans of Arsenal Football Club may not have fond memories about a firmer player if their club in the person of Andrei Arshavin, but the Russian was steadily making headlines during his time at the Emirates for both positive and negative reasons. The former striker left the Gunners after seeing his stock drop so low while also losing his form. He also struggled for fitness and game time at the tail-end of his Gunners career.
For a player who was signed by Arsene Wenger from the Russian football league, Arshavin arrived at Arsenal and made an impact after the first few games he played for the club. He almost immediately wrote his name on the heart of Arsenal fans with some wonderful performances on the pitch and his comportment off it. He became such a popular figure at the club and amongst the fans because he was also an outgoing personality.
