talkSPORT Presenter: "Arshavin shouldn't be welcomed back into England"


Written by Chris Wheatley

126 Comments  

Controversial talkSPORT host Adrian Durham stated that Arsenal midfielder Andrey Arshavin “shouldn’t be welcome back into England” after taking part in Russia’s successful bid to host the FIFA 2018 World Cup.

Arshavin, who will be 37 by the time Russia hold the event, was present at FIFA’s HQ in Zurich along with several other Russian dignitaries for the well-awaited announcement.

Despite Arshavin looking extremely dignified after the announcement, Durham used the 29-year-old as a scapegoat for England’s bid failure and encouraged his listeners to “boo” Arshavin when he returns to club duty for Arsenal.

“Arshavin shouldn’t be welcomed back into England after what he did to us,” Durham said on his daily ‘Drive Time’ show.

The oil-rich nation of Qatar were the other selected country to host the 2022 World Cup, making it the smallest nation and first Middle Eastern country to participate in the tournament.

I agree – i never liked that little prick anyway. Always quick to criticise his team mates for lack of effort yet does so very little himself – i love Arsenal but detest Arshavin – i would be glad to see the back of him.

I have listened to Talksport every day for over a decade and its the only show in town apart from when Adrian Durham spouts his trash. What a plonker. Arshavin is a naughty boy etc etc Rubbish. He is a proud Russian. Good luck to them and to Qatar 2022 which will be amazing.

Well that proves how much of a d*ckhead he is! (As if we didnt know he was already)….its funny cos i said to my mate jokingly that we’re probably gonna get certain fans booing Arshavin now?! …But its THAT kind of attitude that contributed to England bid failing in the first place…that whole big headedness ‘we’re better than everyone else so we SHOULD get it’ attitude. Durhams a c*ck and in a way it doesn’t suprise me he came out with that….

Durham is an anti-Arsenal shit stirrer and should be sacked but Talksport are the only bunch of crooks worse than FIFA themselves. Any nomal person should ignore anything Durham and talksport say.

I thought Arshavin was very reserved when receiving the news, no doubt out of respect for England. He should be congratulated for behaving like a gentleman.

As for Durham…

What a total asshole if he said that.Arshavin is russian just like beckham is english,would he want beckham and prince william eternally booed around the world had england won it?,i very much doubt it.Andrey is russian and of course he should want his nation to win.It is a real shame england lost of that there is no doubt but that alleged remark is silly,shameful and extremely bitter,sad fella.

Adrian Durham! What kind of a person are you?You should be SACKED!This is football.Remember England had its chance before.Whats wrong with Russia hosting and Arshavin as a representive like Beckham was only doing his part for his country! Do’nt tarnish the image of our EPL(the BEST in the world).Go back and Brood, Do not comment further on this as England does not want your ideas at all.

This is just one more example of the self-styled “football genius” bigotry. What would he say if an English player playing in Portugal had backed their bid? What a load of shit this man talks. To blame Arshavin for England’s poor bid is just stupid. I hope that football fans in general are more intelligent. Shame that the sort of people that listen to this idiot’s ramblings are the sort of people that will agree that they should boo him. I actually think it is a thinly veiled attempt to put Arshavin off his game, as his form as just… Read more »

Personally I like the fact some nations who never hosted the World Cup before now got the chance. Afterall, it’s called the WORLD Cup, so what’s wrong Russia and Quatar get the chance to host it? besides, from England’s point of view, it’s a blessing. Just look at the young talents England have right now, there may be a chance they go on and become the second host nation ever fail to qualify from the group stage had they won the bid for 2018 World Cup.

Never mind booing arshavin, everyone should just switch off talkshit when gobshite durham comes on air, its because of cocks like him that our country, which btw already had a world cup when we was an emerging country, does not deserve the world cup. The annoying thing for me is the waste of money that goes into a bid like this when there are millions of people in poverty and dying from starvation and illness. Furthermore, FIFA should come out and state clearly its obvious intentions to award the tournament to countries where its needed. England does not need the… Read more »

@Petrov … You are talking out of the side of your neck, idiot. Adrian Dumbman does not speak for English people, he’s just a ginger wanker, that talks a lotta crap about Arsenal football club, it’s obsessive.He’s a disgrace to journalism,England and gingers.
Next time please Think before you react to anything you hear or read. Arshavin is a stand up guy, representing his country to the max.

Adrian Durham should be banned from radio for trying to incite fans into not welcoming Andrey Arshavin back. We have just had Birmingham fans ruining our football reputation now Talk sport is encouraging racism. He is Russian what do you expect him to do!!!

This is typical of the garbage that Durham speaks on his show.Talk Sport try to wind people up to get people to call in.that’s how they make their money.Buffoons like Parry and Durham are prepared to make the most extreme comments.
Arshavin showed great dignity at the announcement.He is only supporting his country’s bid as he is the Russian captain.A perfectly natural action.

Huh, AA23 was supposed to support England coz he plays there. Well, Beckham should have supported Spain or USA, he played/plays there. This kind of Self exaltation propelled by the media is wot causes English football to be so overated, no wonder WC2010 was a failure coz the really good footballers were overlooked, thanks to the MEDIA.

If it weren’t for the egomaniac english press, england would and should have won the bid. So instead of lashing out at AA23, maybe this c**t should go back home at think of something constructive to say.
