Barca Voice Fake Ethics But Tapping Up Continues

Barca Voice Fake Ethics But Tapping Up Continues

As the media circus goes mental amidst rumours that Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has told Arsene Wenger that he wants to leave The Gunners, we are once again treated to a few moral pontificating sound-bytes from the Barcelona's Txiki Begiristian.

'It's great news that he wants to come here and I think that one day Cesc will have to come to Barca,' he told the club's official website.

'But what matters is Arsenal and what their decision is. They think he is a very important player for them. We have to respect that. At times the wishes of players do not come true because they are under contract.'

'That he says that he wants to come to Barca is a synonym that things are being done well here.

I don't know when but I have the impression that he is a Barca player and that he will enjoy it very much.'

'I wish it was as soon as possible. But we have to respect Arsenal's wishes and the contract he has.'

Considering that Cesc, Wenger and members of our board have consistently stated that we want him at the club for the foreseeable future, 'respecting our wishes' would constitute as pissing off once and for all and leaving us alone.

Stop hiding behind mock-ethics, pretending and appearing to be doing the right thing whilst all the time blatantly and publicly tapping up our finest asset.

Didn't realise until today that txiki is pronounced cheeky. So that's Cheeky Buggerystain...seems rather fitting giving their proclivity for attempting to shaft us season after season.

Well said Rocky. Barcelona are the perfect embodiment of that old adage "Beauty is only skin deep." All pretty football on the outside but ugly as sin underneath. Their behaviour of openly tapping up the player of another club and using all the forces of darkness of trying to get at him is quite despicable. Another tactic they have been using this past 24 hours is trying to put a wedge between Arsenal fans and their captain, trying to erode their hitherto rock solid trust in him by releasing statements of "he said this" and "he said that." I am trying very hard to stand up to this assault but it getting harder by the hour. Barcelona cannot be trusted to act with propriety, therefore it is time for Arsenal or Cesc himself to speak directly and tell us what is really going on.

The only thing I like about Barcelona is their playing style, the rest of their club is grotesque.

Let's not get on our high horse fellas. We haven't always been whiter than white when it comes to aquireing players and 'declaring our interest!

What scum. I hate the way their league's two competitive teams just collect players like effing pokemon. I hope "280 million no trophies Real" actually give these****s a beating next season, then hopefully every other player will slow down on "dreaming" of playing for Barca and they won't treat Arsenal like a feeder club. In the opinion of this Chelsea fan, the very least Fabregas can do to thank Wenger and Arsenal, if he leaves, is to publically express vague interest in moving to Citeh so they instantly make an obscene bid which means you guys get a good price for him from Barca.

Ethics? ETHICS?! These ********s dont know the meaning of the word. Its a foreign concept to them. Navydave, yes we are not whiter than white when it comes to our transfer dealings, but we are nowhere near as underhanded as these *****ers thats for sure.

It's just a case of bigger dog eat dog! Barca/Real have done it to us/United/(name any club with a decent player here). We've done it to smaller clubs in the past. Ferguson is notorious for it. Am I happy about it..... NO! but it's just the nature of the beast. Barca are definately not as bad as Real.
19/05/2010 13:26:00
I've become immune to it, it doesn't even bother me anymore. It's like having to deal with an obnoxious, yapping dog in the neighboring yard all the time, after awhile you tune it out.
