Kop Quote

Andryi Arshavin scored all four of Gunners' goals vs Liverpool in a 4-4 draw on 21st April 2009. Arshavin was proud of his achievement, but also praised the Liverpool fans:

It was typical English football, with a high tempo, good skill, good chances and an amazing atmosphere at Anfield. I must say that with the crowd there, it’s like you’re 11 men playing against one big family. It’s not like their supporters have just come to watch the team, it’s as if you are playing them as well!
