UF Quick Throw: Arshavin move done

It's taken long enough, but Sky Sports News is reporting that Andrei Arshavin's move to Arsenal has been approved by the EPL. How long until he reaches match fitness? I'm guessing March.

We just paid a lot of money for a 5'6 Russian attack-mid.

In related news, Bayern is attempting to sign Tymoshuk from Zenit. They hope to get the deal done by April 1. 2009?

Tymoschuk to Bayern. Bah.

You forgot "temperamental."

No, we just need the sharks to get smaller.

Russia is in the midst of an off-season too.. so not only is Arshavin malnourished (always) but he's now out of shape too.

Don't expect much from the puny Modric clone until March then.
