Cesc Confident Of Future Success

Cesc Confident Of Future Success

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').

Imo he's too young to be captain, but I think someday he'll be.

It would not be overloading him IMO. He alredy has a lot of experience and is a leader at hart and don't forget Tony Adams was only 21 when he became captain and what a leader he was!

only a spuddie idiot with the brains of an amoeba would think that Cesc places a CC trophy above a 3rd place CL spot.

RvP needs to be wrapped in cotton. I hope he doesn't get injured at the Euro. National teams tend to care a lot less than protective Arsene.

Gael-Force, I've given up on RVP. I just really don't care anymore. It may be harsh, but I'm just fed up. We simply can't ever rely on him.

Jaelle, he's a magnificent player so i am not giving up yet. Clichy used to have injury pbs all the time and now he has played the full last 2 seasons. RvP's problem seems more muscular which is a worry. Another example is Ronaldo, out of the game for 4 years but came back.

Gael, *sigh*, you may be right, I certainly hope you are. I love RVP, no one is a bigger than I of his skills and talent. And I'd love to be proven wrong. But if it's all the same story next season, I just don't see how he can be seen as anything other than a passenger. Lou, I feel sorry for him too, he's got a strong winning mentality and he wants to be out there on the pitch every game.

Good goal from Teo but he missed a much easier one earlier. Next year we need to tuck them all in.
