Cesc and the Media

A great man and colleague of mine recently wrote that Cesc Fabregas is not an Arsenal legend. I agree.

Cesc is an amazing player with a glorious future. I witnessed his first ever Champions League goal in a 5-1 thrashing of Rosenborg in December, 2004. I remember thinking as the North bank celebrated wildly, that I had just witnessed the first of many Champions League goals to come for a sure bet future Arsenal legend.

The potential is clearly still there but he could well leave this summer or the one after. Who knows?!?! To my mind, Cesc Fabregas will not go the same route as the ex Gunner who scored the first goal of that match, Jose Antonio Reyes. He could instead become an icon in the mold of the man who grabbed Arsenal’s second goal that night, Thierry Henry. Again, who knows!?!?

Recent reports have yet again hinted that our captain/player maker is contemplating a return to his homeland. Just as when Patrick Vieira was captain Cesc is continually talked about as a potential target of Real Madrid. Despite being raised a Barcelona fan by Barcelona fans, in Barcelona, it is repeatedly stated in the media that Cesc will/might/could leave Arsenal for Real Madrid.



If and when the time comes for Cesc Fabregas or Arsene Wenger or Manoue Eboue or the kit man or FN Goonersaurus to leave, they will leave. There will be a club left for us to continue supporting after they’ve gone. That much we all do know.

The more people buy into the media speculation/attempts to destabilize our club the more they will do it. Unfortunately, it is the nature of the beast.
