Fabregas started off the season this year in blinding form, combining vision, assists, hard work, aggression, and goal scoring all in a 5 foot 9 inch frame. His contributions and value to this team at the moment is indispensable, and not a price in the world could see Arsene part with the young Spaniard. Wait now....what'd you say? Oh that was last year, wasn't it? My mistake.
Cesc was booked for the fifth time this season against Villa, compounding more misery to the weekend for Gooners. He will not be able to take part in the match against Manchester City next weekend, as he was also booked against Newcastle, Bolton, West Ham and Stoke earlier in this young campaign. Now whether he regains his place after the suspension should be in doubt.
Say what you want, but for me Cesc Fabregas' head is not at Arsenal anymore. Some might argue that its wandered on over to Catalonia, but I will not go that far. Many suggestions have been made to why he has displayed this lack of form including, but certainly not limited to: the departures of Hleb and Flamini, the lack of a true defensive midfielder next to him, or even the absence of a proper preseason for Arsenal. It may be one of these or a combination of many things, but one thing is for certain, his performances do not warrant an automatic starting spot anymore. He needs to spend some time on the bench. This might be detrimental in maintaining his loyalty to the club, but for me that is a risk that must be taken. Aaron Ramsey has displayed all of his exquisite attributes in the Carling Cup, and should get the call up to the creative midfield role come Saturday. Aaron Ramsey is not a better player than Fabregas, but on form right now, I think he could do a better job. An intervention must take place for Cesc Fabregas, and I believe this drastic step is what the doctor is calling for. Hopefully he responds to the medicine.
