Newly-crowned PFA Young Player of the Year, Cesc Fabregas, steadfastly believes that Arsene Wenger's team has it in them to deliver silverware to the throngs of fans in Islington, and beyond.
Speaking after receiving the gong, the stylish midfielder said:
What matters at the end of the day is a trophy.
We didn't win one this season but we will be up for it next season.
I think we will win something, of course.
Cesc, who has also been named in the PFA team of the year, alongside Arsenal teammates Emmanuel Adebayor, Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy (Cashley who?), reiterated his desire to bring trophies to our club, and repay Arsene Wenger's faith and confidence in him, at the inception of his career.
I've always said that I'm grateful for what he did for me and what he is still doing for me and this club.
He has great scouts around the world watching and he is intuitive about his players. He has the smell for who will become a very good player and a good person.
And as the furore surrounding the Captain's armband continues to gather pace, amid speculation that William Gallas will be removed from his position, Fabregas took the opportunity to distance himself from assuming the mantle of Club Captain.
I don't know. This is not in my hands, it is the boss that decides that.
You have to respect William for what he has done in football and what he is doing now, for me he is doing a good job.
For me, the most important thing is giving everything on the pitch, that is what really matters to me.
No doubting that Cesc has the mettle of a captain.
What's more a question is would it be overloading him with responsibility at his age, and even if the captaincy is to be removed from Gallas, it must not be allowed to become something that appears to have been carried out at the behest of the media, such has been their scramble to see Gallas made to pay for sitting down in a centre circle after a disappointing late draw away from home (I'm not saying I agree with what Gallas did that day, but it's hardly the worst crime in the world. I'd say that booting a female steward is far worse, but I guess you're allowed such indiscretions if you are English, as it just shows you 'care').
