The great Cesc Fàbregas debate rages on, fueled by idiots like me who tweet about it and write blogs about it.
Will he leave Barcelona ?
Do we want him ?
Do we need him ?
Is there a buyout clause-how much is it ?
Does Arsene want him ?
Would he disrupt the team spirit ?
Should we go for him just to stop someone else getting him ?
Would he “kill” Jack , Aaron, AOC or anyone else ?
Is he injury prone ?
Is he slow ?
And on and on and on go the questions.
Just like the Arense in/out debate, there is a full spectum of opinions. The fan base is divided .
Least we forget , this is a player that forced his way out of the club.
Arsene did not want to sell him and he had a long contract. The team had been built around him.
Arsene had trusted him to lead us forward in a very difficult time. He was key to the future of the team and the club. We were forced to sell him at less than the perceived market value. It was him who did the forcing.
At the time it was a crushing blow to everyone at the club.
He knew his importance . He knew the love the fans and staff felt for him, yet he forced his way out.
I don’t care a jot that he wanted to go home, win things and play with his mates. He let everyone who loves the club down. He chose to do that. Him, and him alone.
I care even less that he is savvy enough to bang on about his love for Arsenal, for me its just rhetoric. Its like a man who leaves his loyal and loving wife and goes back to his first love. Its poor form and he let us down.
He let me down, ! I was gutted .
Did he go on strike? I don’t know ! No one outside the club does. But I do know that Nasri played and he didn’t. Yet two days after he left he was playing with his first love, running around like a spring lamb.
Am I bitter? You bet your life I am !
He is a fabulous player. He would be a huge asset to us now.
He could cover for Ozil and Ramsey(or alternate ,if you would rather) .
He would make us more dangerous going forward, score and assist as a given.
I believe that before he left he was the best player in the league, he was that good. He would be up there again I have no doubt.
Still, until the questions asked at the top are answered , its a redundant debate.
For the record though, if buying him did not adversely effect the purchase of players in positions that we have a greater need , I would be happy to see him back at the club.
My hypocrisy knows no bounds.
