According to Pyles, Arsene doesn't big up Andrey Arshavin enough.
He also described Andrey's performance on that night against the Mug Smashers (with thanks to Arseblogger) as the "most electrifying he has ever seen from an Arsenal player" including DB 10 (also known as "God" by members of the Gooner Nation) and Thierry Henry (who we call "Igwe" back home in Nigeria, and for those who're wondering, Igwe means King).
There is no doubt that Andrey "Assassin" Arshavin is a special talent. The whole world and their gran can see that. And there is no doubt that the performance at Anfield that night was something special, the kind of thing you only see once in a lifetime, at least, if you're not an Arsenal supporter (we Gooners have gotten used to seeing such mind-blowing things from Arsene's boys).
Clearly, Pyles is a fan of Arshavin. He's been for a very long time, and he's never hidden the fact from anyone. And, if as a fan of a player you feel he's under-appreciated by his manager, well, fair play to you, it's your opinion after all. It is from that point onwards that Pyles's hatred of Arsenal comes bubbling to the surface. I know, he just can't help himself.
When he says that if Igwe had scored those four goals, Wenger would be still be talking about them every week it has to rank up there with greatest bullshit ever written. The same Wenger, who Cesc recently said comes to him after a game in which he feels he was perfect and shows him a tape and says, "You shouldn't have done that. Or that. Or that." Wenger doesn't dwell on good performances from anybody. He praises them after the game, and that's it.
Did Wenger talk about Henry's game-changing performance against Liverpool at Higbury for weeks and weeks? Of course not! Did he endlessly rehash Henry's 5-star performance against Inter Milan for months? Nope.
Pyles has constantly suggested that Arsene doesn't like Arshavin, even going so far as to imply that it was Gazidis and not Wenger who signed the Russian in January. Now, there are several things wrong with this line of reasoning, but I'll point out one of the most glaring: if (as Pyles wants us to believe) Arsene Wenger is an egomaniacal control-freak, then how the hell would anybody force him to sign a player he didn't want, or give him any playing time? Didn't we all see how Robbie Keane's sojourn at Liverpool ended?
At the end of his write-up, Pyles tells us that he's been telling Arsene how good Arshavin is for months. As if Arsene Wenger bothers to read this kind of trash. The only egomaniacal control-freak on ANR is Pyles himself.
