Fabregas Doesn't Want Nose Job

Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas is hoping to avoid surgery on his hooter after breaking it on international duty.

The Spaniards schnozz was broken as he challenged an opponent for the ball, but despite this Fabregas hopes to face Everton tomorrow.

'There is a fracture but it has not come away from the main partition in the nose,' he told EFE.

'After the game it was pretty swollen but I hope this will not prevent me from playing.

'We will have to see if it continues being okay and that I don't need an operation.

'I don't even know how it happened really, I started going for goal and I do not know if it was a punch or a knee from a Belgian defender but it was a heavy blow.'

Having broken my own beak on five seperate occassions I'd hazzard a guess he will be fine, just snap that bad boy back into place and be gone with you.

Five times? Jeez, does your missus swing out in her sleep? Mind you I've busted my jaw about seven times now and after a while you do get a bit blasé about it? Cesc is a tough cookie, he'll be fine. Also nice to see that, once again, he was swift to distance himself from comments attributed to him during the international break (if you'll pardon the expression).
Little Dutch
Sorry to say this but I hope it does not spoil his Good-looks! Now back to football, gald to hear that Cesc will be fit for Sat Game against Everton.
Yeah, once via someone's fist, twice playing football, once playing basketball and once via a house brick that also cracked my skull and broke my jaw. That one stung a little!!lol. Still if Andy Linnigan can score an FA Cup final winner with a broken nose Cesc will be more than fine.
On breaking your nose, it depends on how bad the break is (or at what angle). I've done mine serveral times playing rugby. Once had it reset at hospital, but every other time it's sorted itself. It doesn't sound like a bad one, so (providing his breathing is ok) he should be fit to play!
Was gonna say Rocky, living up to your name there... i'd hazard a guess he'll want it back in its natural state, he has had his chest hair laser removed after all
Well aslong as it hasn't altered your winning smiles and good looks lads that's all that matters! ;o) lol Touch wood, never broken a bone in my life, more than happy to keep it that way thank you very much!
I had to have mine reset the last time Navy - the sound of the crunch (not crack as the doc said) will haunt me till my dying day ..... lol
Oops Rocky a brick?! :O I'm fainting already..!
I think we need to be told the story of the brick here.
Lol - It was new years eve and my bud had a house party, shortly after midnight this random stranger came into his house causing trouble so me and a friend ejected him. Two minutes later there was a knock at the door mny bud opened and this guy smashed a bottle over his head. So I chased him down the street and as I rounded the corner he was waiting bricking hand and knocked me and my face out in one fell swoop. lol. 6 hours in casualty on New Years day with my nose over my left eye was no fun!!
In Croydon, that would have been considered a gesture of kinship.
Little Dutch
Weren't in Holloway was it...
Sounds like this random son of a beach has a whole heap of karma heading this way, cowardly little creep. Needless to say the old bill never did jack about it or made any effort to find him huh? It being NYE and acts of casual violence being the norm!.
They threatened to arrest me because when they turned up they were acting like *********s and I let them know it. lol. Still, I should have known better than to chase after him, probably not something I would have done had I been sober. Still, you live and learn!
*shakes fist and grumbles about coppers*
One of my best mates once glassed himself in the face while I was sitting in the pub with him. (This is not how one usually endures discussion with me, but I can't say I blame him). When I asked him what in the name of Satan's portion had made him glass himself in the face, he just reasoned that, if he were to ever be the victim of a glassing (a likely enough scenario in Sawf London) then he would be ready for it and know what to expect.

"Two minutes later there was a knock at the door mny bud opened and this guy smashed a bottle over his head." That reminds me to buy a peephole.If it's any consolation, I would have done the same.
LD - That's cos you're all swampy S.L.A.G.s!!!
South Londoners Against Glassings?
South Londoners Administer Glassings.
Little Dutch
Aah, with you. Do these two rival groups ever meet up? If so how does the former defend itself?
With house bricks, they've nothing against a good old fashioned bricking. Especially whilst singing, "he made me feel sick so I hit him with a brick..........."
Little Dutch
So strictly speaking they should be S.L.A.Bs then LD?. It's not too often round my way I see geezers walking round or sitting in a boozer with a brick in tow, but thanks to your insight I'll know he's not some harmless builder stopping off to give an estimate!.
lol I cannot believe what I'm reading!
S.L.A.Bs is a very fitting name too, they use paving slabs you see. I once knew a bloke who had his jaw, nose and skull broken by a paving slab. To be fair I think he was a bit of a tool and had it coming to him……………..
Little Dutch
"Are you the South Londoners Administer Glassings?" "f*** Off, we're the South Londoners Against Glassings? He's over there!"
Probably lost on some younger posters me thinks!
jaw, nose and skull broken by a paving slab?? Let me guess - he fell on the pavement heavily after the statutory glassing?
@ LG splitter!!
LondonGooner - Shut up bignose.
LOL classic stuff!
Who you calling big nose?
I know what I'm going top be watching later tonight after the pub! lol
Shewore - Have I left me webcam on by mistake again?
Dunno mate but i wouldn't be looking at a fella called 'LondonGooner's' webcam...
incontinentia..............buttocks. Thats gets me every feckin time :)
Welease woderwick!! There's too many funny parts!
So glad I've left South London lol
But has it really left you Lou?
ie when did you last glass anybody? (stranger or otherwise)
"You can't polish a turd" springs to mind! My old man said that to me when I moved from Leytonstone! The old codger!!
lol Niko I don't glass, though I'm crass. And I'm now 5983 miles away from London so I'm safe. :)
