Cesc Fabregas (a move forward or backward) by John Collard
‘There’s no such thing as a great substitute in the world of football – I couldn’t tell you what makes a great substitute,’ Fabregas told Marca.
‘I always wish my team-mates well and put a happy face on. If I have to take my unhappy face home then so be it, but I would never let my team-mates or manager see it.’
‘I’ve always said that I play for the best team in the world, but I came here to compete, to learn and enjoy, not to sit wracking my brains.’
‘The manager knows what I can offer. I’m delighted to be a part of this team but when a coach tells me I have to go, I’ll go.’
‘But I will not make it easy for him to do so, by any means. I will keep going, looking forward to the time that things change.’
‘I came here to see out my career.’
A small blog today on your view on the Cesc situation and a possible return to Arsenal (if ever). I’ve been reading many peoples posts and small paper articles on the return of the midfield genius. Now im not looking for a argument so I want to make this very clear all I want is a opinion (Would you take him back?).
Cesc chose to leave Arsenal as many do down the years be it for money or say they are going for silverware. Now Cesc seems to be finding life a tad harder and seems to struggle in the new managers plans people cry for a return (Why?). Can Arsenal not move on without Fabregas as we did from Henry. Im looking at some comments from fans and saying lets get him back we need him (I don’t think we do). Yes it would be a great addition to the squad but when Jack Wilshire is fit I believe we have a better all round talent. Also it would seem Santi Cazorla seems to be adding just as much football ability as the great Cesc Fabregas. I read so many blog merchants come on here and said we don’t need him anyway (and they are right) but lets stick by our guns and move on.
When a great player like Cesc wants to leave, are the fans the first thing on his mind (NO WAY) Cesc like Van Persie have all said how much they love the club and Wenger is like a father (Well I wouldn’t leave my father in the sxxt) Would you guys? I really believe its too soon and we must all move on and forget about Cesc Fabregas. I would really like to hear your views on this situation and what you would like. Yes it would be great to have him still at Arsenal but taking him back is that really the answer? Do we all pine for the player that much and feel we cant move on from a player that cant break into the Barcelona team (Ok Cesc come home) Second best is what you want (WE ALL LOVE YOU AGAIN!).
Gooners in the midfield I think we have the players to cover Cesc and to bring him back in my opinion would only rock the boat. Remember this is just a blog on your view…. if you ask me Cesc will not return to Arsenal anytime soon. Liverpool has more chance of signing Drogba.
To be also fair it would seem midfield is Arsenal’s strongest part and it doesn’t need to be changed. So do we open our arms for Cesc to walk back into the team and tell Arteta and Jack sorry lads (Not that Jack would make way for Cesc because he is a better all round player). With Wilshire I see a young Paul Gascoigne and has ability in abundance. So say this fantasy talk we keep hearing about should be true what do you wish to see. For me I would have liked Cesc to stay like Van Persie and grow with the new group of player. (But they wanted to leave) So is the love for the club really that strong and for the weeping fans.
Would it not be fair even in this early stage to say Carzorla is doing a great job and maybe as well as Cesc, and the return of Jack and Mikel Arteta would make a statement of saying sorry Cesc there is no room at the inn. I just think fans begging for the resign of Cesc would not show the player how big the club really is. It’s a topic which im sure will have many great views. But listen gooners I want to make this clear im asking your opinion I am in no shape or form seeking a argument with you all.
It’s the principle of the matter it would be like taking back Flamini but some will say well he is not in the same class (SO) It’s the message Arsenal football club send. Listen fellow gooners when it comes to the crunch we are the real love merchants of this wonderful club (Not the players) WELL TONY ADAMS DID. Thanks for reading.
