talkSPORT Presenter: “Arshavin shouldn’t be welcomed back into England”

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 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….

    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 taken an upturn. Durham has such an anti-Arsenal agenda and to see us win the title this year would make him sick.

    Arsenal fans lets get right behind AA23 on Saturday.

    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 world cup our domestic league is the richest in the world and will thrive with or without the world cup. Congratulations to Russia and in partiucular to Arshavin, by all accounts his speech made Beckhams and the Future King of England’s seem like one of the student protester’s after a night on the shott’s.

    Arshavin has been publically involved in the Russia bid from Day 1. As captain of his country what else is to be expected ?

Sadly it demonstrates the worst aspect of today’s British culture which is an inabilty to accept defeat gracefully, but instead to lash out at somebody, anybody.

    They tried the same corruption route the Russians used, even the Prime Minister tried to suck up to the bribe takers to keep them kind.

    Now that it is lost, it is sour grapes (just like the world cup, or any other football competition England participate in).

    Go on fooling yourself to thinking this is still a great empire, when in reality it has become a small European 3rd world country, only benefiting from being a US servant!

    Talkshite have done it again. What a load of complete crap. If Arshavin should be banned, then how about the guy who paid for the votes Abramovich. Andre was supporting his country and I’m sure any English player playing in a country bidding for the world cup would do the same. Come on Andre knock a couple in tomorow for us.

    This statement i published truely show how little pride that some people have. Get over it, russia got the WC. Even if i have hoped it had gone to England.
    But this wasn`t Arshavin`s desission, but Fifa made it.
    People should rather Boo BBC for making the tv programs on Fifa, and taking them off the air..

    That man is a complete idiot. Some of the tosh that is spouted from their website is truly impressive. when oligarchs meet oligarchs they kind of get on – hence Russia wins! Hardly Arshavin’s fault.

  125. [...] Now the pair are to form a three-pronged arial assault of misogyny by joining one-time wife-basher Stan Collymore in jobs at TalkSport, the station that’s been reported to Offcom for homophobia (Bushel and Mendoza) and racism (Alan Brazil), as well as attracting controversy for having aBNP member as a DJ (Rod Lucas, who was sacked) and for saying Andre Arshavin shouldn’t be welcomed back to England after he helped promote Russia’ successful bid for the 2018 World Cup (Adrian Durham).
