Let’s get things straight first: I am a Gunners fan. I was absolutely ecstatic on Wednesday after a 2-1 comeback win over Barcelona, the Gunners first win over the Spanish club ever. Of course, my excitement high came crashing down (just a bit) when club captain Cesc Fabregas came out and reaffirmed his commitment to the Gunners. Here’s what he had to say:
“I’m showing I’m committed to this club and we want to do great things,” Fabregas said. ”I want to continue working to improve and help us win trophies. We are still fighting in all four competitions.
“We want to win everything and go the furthest possible in all competitions. My future is the last thing on my mind.”
First of all, let me say it’s not an awful thing he’s saying these type of things. He wants to show the talks between him and his boyhood club Barca are shut down, for now. The timing of this statement is what I have a problem with. Why did he have to say it right after beating Barcelona? According to him, his future may be the last thing on his mind, however, the fact the 23-year-old had to release these statements now…maybe it’s just me who has a problem with this.
I’ve expected Cesc to leave the Emirates for Camp Nou for quite a while now. He’d be a center piece of the club for years to come after Xavi finally decides he’ll give up a bit of the world-class quality he has. Really, it just fuels the fire that Fabregas will take his Nike CTR360 Maestri shoes to Spain. Don’t get me wrong; I’ve loved everything he has done for Arsene Wenger and the club. However, with an up-and-coming prodigy in Jack Wilshere, a soon-to-be carbon copy of Fabregas given his meteoric rise at the tender age of 19. Time for Arsenal to cash in and end these annoying rumors.
