Fabregas Wins Award For Being Ace

Fabregas Wins Award For Being Ace

Cesc Fabregas has been recognised as the best young player in the Premier League this season by his fellow professionals.

The Spanish midfield maestro was named PFA Young Player Of The Year after some scintillating displays that saw Arsenal lead the league for the majority of the season.

Fabregas was delighted with the honour.

'I am very proud because it is always satisfying for yourself, but all the team worked really hard this season and it's been disappointing at the end,' he Fabregas told Sky Sports.

'But at least someone can get something.

'But this is for all the team, and all the fans, because all together we have had good season even though we haven't won anything at the end.

'This is thanks to them as well.'

Well deserved, this boy just gets better and better. I hope we all as supporters don't indulge that horrible British trait of knocking him every time he's less than perfect. We have the most complete central midfielder in world football and he's not yet 21. Well done Cesc.

nobody deserved this award more than cesc this year! Gratz Cesc! :)

I rather laughably heard some Man Utd fans claiming Anderson had been better than Cesc this year. Fab is an awesome player, he's also a winner, everything we need.

Very well done Cesc! Team trophies will follow! I actually felt quite confident Cesc would get it (plus those pros who couldn't stand Ronaldo holding both awards last year would have voted for Cesc this year lol). Rocky, some ManU fans also said Ronaldo should get both awards again too. Some of them got bitter enough to ask "Isn't Torres 24 already? Why's he still considered a "young" player?!" lol

Congratulations to Cesc a well deserved award. Congratulations to the others who, together with Cesc made us the most represented side in the PFA team of the year; Sagna, Clichy and Adebayor. Presumably they now become the sort of 'big name' players we should have signed?

Well said Amos - Ade, Clichy and Sagna have made their names. Again shows that Arsene seldom buys stars, he makes them.

Thoroughly deserved, not only for his quality and talent, but because of his winner's attitude. He's going to get even better as he gets physically stronger. Also see that Wenger has praised Clichy, especially for his performance against Man Utd. Have to say, he was absolutely awesome in that game, where he got that much energy and desire from, I do not know. Whatever happens, we have to say that all our players gave 100% this season and we could not ask for more.

Surely even you lot should admit Torres done far more this year, and is more likely to WIN SOMETHING.
28/04/2008 11:57:00
AS, nobody here doubts the quality that is Torres.. and I'll be happier if u could name someone from the team u support who made it to the epl best 11.. NONE?.. then save the banter for next year mate.
28/04/2008 12:05:00
And surely you can admit that Cesc, despite not winning anything, has been better than any play to wear the Spurs shirt?!
