If Cesc Fabregas goes to Barca it will be the dumbest move by a player and a club (Barca) I have witnessed since Alex Hleb left co-incidentally to go to the same club.
He’s not in the squad this weekend, and he’s not injured because if he was he’d fail the Barca medical, he’s sulking, the captain of Arsenal is sulking. What a joke.
I watched Alcantara score two goals for Barca last night and he was a joy to watch and he’s what 19? Iniesta is in his mid twenties and Xavi is just thirty, so where does Cesc fit in? Why would Barca spend big money to get a player in a position they have surrounded?
And he’s fast becoming a crock, snap off their hands and make Nasri sign a long term contract. If he won’t, then sell him too.
Make Mata a priority and unveil him at the Emirates Cup and sign Cahill or Samba, both have prices on them, Samba has tweeted that the Arsenal rumours are disrespectful, if only we got that from Cesc, if only. Point is both players are available and we know what their price is, so what’s difficult, sell Squillaci and bring in Bartley, then we’ll have cover.
Not sure who would buy Squillaci though, he’s a complete enigma, no wonder Nasri won’t sign a new contract.
Today’s rumour is Tevez to Madrid and Benzema to Arsenal, so if we did all the above I could see us ripping the league, all are available and all would transform this team, Theo getting injured in pre-season worries me enough to get a world class striker in now.
Crazy thing is we could get all those players without needing to sell Cesc, but his silence is deafening and it will be the same forever, so sell him and be done.
All the pundits are predicting will will finish 6th, if we play the team I’ve seen so far I think that’s a good call, if we make a few of the above signings I think we can win the league, it really only needs tweaking, but we have been here before so I’m not holding my breath.
The Mancs beat New York Red Bulls 4nil last night so I’m expecting a big win at the weekend, in fact it doesn’t look like a big workout like we normally have so with luck we won’t get too many injuries.
In my heart I would have Cesc stay and play with Mata, but at what cost because you know that Wenger will throw money at the problem and that will stop us signing more players, I still think that we need a big DM, maybe Frimpong will have a Flamini season and solve the problem.
Either way we to resolve this problem for good, if Cesc stays then he needs to tell the Barca team, the Barca manager and the Barca board to stop harassing the Arsenal, it has to stop, if not the please sell him.
I wonder why we took Ryo on our pre-season when he hasn’t got a work permit yet? Maybe a deal has been done already, I’m not sure he’s ready yet, but you can never have too many wingers, well not unless you are Man City that is!
Have a great day Grovers, hopefully Mata will happen today.
