Monday Backpasses: Really, we're done (for now)

fuck chelsea but germany's gaffer is a total cunt if he really stops ballack from playing in the fa cup final. i could understand if it was a qualifier but an exhibition tour? thats just totally unreasonable, overbearing, and the definition of douche.

/can't believe i'm sticking up for a member of chelscum especially a cunt like ballack but low is way off base here

Does Low have the power to stop him from playing for both club and country? Preferably forever? Because that would be awesome.

Arshavin is hilarious.

Yulia making Arshavin get a haircut - one shorter than usual - before leaving, so he can wait longer until his next cut, reminds me of what a mom would do before sending her freshman son off to college.



Thanks, Mom.

Between flying his stylist to London, his ridiculous hatred of women drivers, his fashion line, and pretty much all the pictures of him, I'm pretty sure Arshavin is my favorite premier league footballer now.
