Now that the 2010-11 Premier League season is three weeks old, it’s about time we—commented on it at all? Checked in on Americans in the league? Made some predictions?
Well, sure, yes—all of that. We’ll get to it, we promise, before league play resumes on Sept 11.
Some recent gems from his reader mail:
Snakann: Hi, Andrey! I came across your photos on the internet not long ago, where you are wearing a stylish suit. It was rather unusual to see you in a suit. It suits you!
A.A.: Really? OK. Although, frankly, I rarely wear business suits and feel uncomfortable in them.
Polovinka: Good luck in the upcoming games; I wish you health and all the best. Q: What are you doing tomorrow evening?
A.A.: Training with the national team.
From Vladlena1: I have a vital domestic question: “Can you cook?”
A.A.: So-so. I can make macaroni, fry some meat, make a sandwich and pour a cup of tea…
Vladlena1 [She (we assume) posted four consecutive questions]: Give us, please, your opinion. What do you think is more romantic to watch the sunset or the sunrise?
A.A.: Enjoy both the sunset and the sunrise, and, most importantly, do it with a person you like.
Bulanmisha: “We’ve Got Arshavin, F**K Adebayor!”
А.А.: I’ve heard that.
There are plenty more where those came from. Andrey continues to bring it in 2010.
Arshavin and Russia face Andorra today and Slovakia on Tuesday in their opening pair of Euro 2012 qualifiers.
He’ll be back in Premier League action when Arsenal hosts Bolton and U.S. midfielder Stuart Holden on Sept 11.
