Yes obviously an exaggeration.
But he has been rubbish. Although not all the defences he has faced have been better than Chelsea or United, I do think he's faced much more worthy opponents here than the likes of Darren Moore or Senderos who are closer to the quality he faces most weeks in the league. Anyway it's all irrelevant. Can only beat what's in front of you and all that.
Expected Arshavin to do a bit more against Spain but he never got into the game.
