I know todays post was earmarked for the chump of the year, however the Cersc Fabregas story has emerged and I can’t ignore it.
HOWEVER, IS IT TRUE? AND IF IT IS TRUE, THEN DON’T INSULT US BY SELLING HIM CHEAP, £50mil AND NOT A PENNY LESS.
I would say no again but having said that, with the world cup coming up and the fact that Cesc is 23 and won nothing of note, (save the FA cup, the Emirates cup, a Community shield and the Amsterdam trophy) this time it could be true.
A big well done to bumbling idiot Peter Hill-Wood who said that Cesc wasn’t good enough to get in the Barca side, I bet that endeared Cesc to the Arsenal, thanks Pete, you are truly a smart guy. It is so time that we asked him to leave, he is just embarrassing.
I seriously doubt that Barca can afford to buy Cesc, Villa and Wayne Rooney all at the same time, however if this Cesc story is true, then why does Arsene keep increasing players contracts, it doesn’t get loyalty and it doesn’t increase their transfer value, all it ever does is reduce our transfer budget and make average players fabulously wealthy.
If it is true I would strip him of the captaincy and stick him in the stiffs for a season. It’s time to stand up to players, this is Arsenal football club and it has long had it’s policy dictated to it by players, time to send a message out Arsene.
On the up side though, if Cesc is sold, it will spell the end of project youth, it will finally prove that all we are, is a training facility for fancy clubs, Hleb, Flamini, Ade and now Cesc.
He is telling Wenger that he is no longer prepared to listen to the ‘I believe in this squad’ rhetoric from Arsene Wenger.
He has now to admit his youth policy has failed, we have won nothing and now we are losing our best player.
Arshavin has been saying since he arrived that we need to sign some grown ups, Robin has too, now what will they do? I wouldn’t be surprised if Wenger took this opportunity to resign if Cesc is allowed to go, then blame disgruntled fans for forcing him to abandon his doomed project.
Of course he could well say Aaron Ramsey or Samir Nasri will fill the gap and go and sign another couple of 18 year olds and pay them a kings ransom.
Ivan, time to tell the boss how it is, time to tell him we need to act more like Barca and bring in top players to play with the young ones, then we may get back to winning some trophies, you know, like Barca do. The team you claimed are the best team in Europe. That’s why, they buy world class players.
All this of course if the story is true, but losing Cesc would be a massive blow, he is after all a very good player.
I hope you stay Cesc, I really do, but if you are allowed to leave after so many extensions and pay rises, I will be disgusted, disappointed but at the same time relieved, at least it will consign project youth to the dustbin and we may get back to being a football club and not a nursery.
Oh and congratulations to arsenal.com, commenting on players we won’t buy is truly cringe making, comment on this rumour, that’s the question that needs answering.
Have a great day Grovers, maybe tomorrow we’ll get back to Chump of the year, with this ash cloud hanging over us called Cesc, maybe there will be a surprise winner.
