Barca risk screwing themselves

Barca risk screwing themselves

Barcelona's actions are embarrassing to their club. The continuous procession of players and club officials announcing their desire to get Fabregas into their bed is beginning to make them appear disturbingly obsessive. Xavi is the latest player to get in on the act. It`s a psychological flaw they need to seek help with. More and more their club is beginning to look like a nerdy stalker in a dirty raincoat, or a slutty groupie following Cesc around.

With a compliant press ever eager to look for any encouragement to invent a story their increasingly desperate pleadings have a ready ear. But it has gone on so long that Cesc has mastered the art of pretty instant denials and his response to Xavi`s love letter was marked 'return to sender` and mailed back very quickly.

"It doesn't upset me what Xavi says, not at all. It is very flattering from a great player like Xavi," said Cesc with practiced diplomacy as he continued

"I am the captain of Arsenal and I have a job to do here. Everyone has their own life and you do what you feel is better for you.

"Being at Arsenal is the best thing for me at the moment. I want to win things here and I'm very comfortable with Arsenal.

"I love London, it's a great city, it's like my house, it's really good. It is very important for a player to feel at home and I feel like that."

The chances of Barcelona getting Cesc one day are probably a good bit better than Adebayors chances of pulling Beyonce but their classless posturing risks spoiling any potential future consummation if infatuation doesn't ultimately fade as it is prone to do.

In lovemaking things can happen too soon, timing is important if all parties are to be satisfied. So Barcelona will just have to wait to be screwed. In the meantime taking up a position more likely to be found in the centre pages of a porno magazine doesn`t make them any more attractive. It might appear to help make things happen quicker but that's often with only one party present.

it's getting annoying but nothing barca do will ever risk spoiling this move because sooner or later it will definitely happen.

A nicely writte piece Amos, but if Barca are screwing themselves or not, Cesc will still join them. I would not blame the young man for wanting to return home, he's been away for 6 years now. I think that next season will be his last with us, which really saddens me, but preparing for the reality of it will soften the blow.

There's an inevitability that all players will go sometime. The trick is for us to time it when it suits us and to get the most out of it. There are very few players that are truly indispensable and most are replaced more easily than we sometimes imagine. What is silly about all this is that if it is going to happen there is no need for Barca to say or do anything. It just makes them look so cringe makingly desperate.
02/10/2009 12:53:00
You are spot on Amos, they do seem increasingly desperate. All they are doing is laying down a " we love you Cesc " marker for when Real Madrid show their hand.

I think Arsene needs to be looking for a replacement to Cesc now, as I believe that he will be gone within the next couple of seasons. Actually, I’d be surprised if he wasn’t already doing so, possibly looking at Nasri or Arshavin as the creator. But if we can hang on to Cesc for at least two seasons, Wilshere could be the perfect replacement provided we can hang on to him as well. It’s not all doom and gloom.

Although he says all the right 'generic' comments in interviews you get the sense his heads already been turned and it's only a matter of time. What you have got going for you though is Barca's perplexing desparation (considering Xavi and Iniesta are the best 2 ACM's in the world imo) which means you could probably name your price.

Amos, your prolonged sex metaphor for Barca and Cesc was a hilarious way to start a slow Friday morning, thank you. :-D What I don't understand is the assumption that Cesc will just stroll right into Barca's first team as a regular starter right now. Certainly in a few years that will be the case (I also assume he'll return there) but not now. Xavi and Iniesta control Barca's playmaking in midfield and look to do that for some time to come. Cesc would start maybe some domestic cup games, or replace one of them when they're injured. At Arsenal he's the captain, a regular starter, the principle playmaker. He dictates our game, he's our "thinker" (to use an Argentine term for a playmaker). Right now that just wouldn't be the case at Barca. I was surprised to hear Xavi make those comments, he's not known for public statements like that. it's like La Porta's urging his players to all come out publicly and unsettle Cesc. I guess Barca have never forgiven Arsene for taking Cesc and they're getting a little revenge.

BTW, did you guys read these wonderful quotes from Cesc about Arsene? Got me all choked up. On a totally separate topic, I just watched Arsene's latest interview on the official site and--contrary to what he said in his last press conference--it looks like Almunia is still "doubtful" for Blackburn. This is the longest "chest infection" I've ever heard of.

lol about Ade's chances with Beyonce! I think Wilshere is the replacement...

How do you say 'yawn' in Catalan/Spanish? Bostezo!!
