Is The Peseta Finally Dropping At Barca?

Is The Peseta Finally Dropping At Barca?

Could it finally be dawning on the morons over at Camp Nou that Arsene Wenger will not be bullied into selling Cesc Fabregas, cut-price or otherwise?

The past few days have seen both horse faced midfielder, Sergio Busquets, and newly appointed village idiot Sandra Rossell admit that it may prove more difficult than first thought to get Arsenal to sell their best player and captain, Cesc Fabregas.

Sandra said "They don't want to listen to offers and they are not putting the player on the market. One thing that is certain is that we will not go mad trying to sign him."

Now the Barca manager (who seems to have been the only member of the Barca staff to have kept schtum during the last 12 months) has also conceded that it's unlikely we'll be willing to budge on our current Fabregas stance.

Pep Guardiola said "I think signing Cesc will cost a lot. We want him to come but if Arsenal don't want to negotiate, he won't come."

So it seems as though they're finally getting the message. Of course we're still going to have to listen to endless drivel from Xavi, who is far too interested in DNA to understand anything else on planet earth, and Puyol, whose 6 feet of solid perm prevents any information getting in or out of his Brian May-like head.

However with both players into their 30s and the average male life expectancy in Spain currently standing at 76 years, we only have to wait another 40 years or so before they both die. Hurrah!

Pre season friendly between Barcelona and Stoke anyone? Perhaps we should invite both teams to the Emirates Cup next year?

Tbh, if they offered 50 mil. GBP now, I'd sell him in a heartbeat.

I wouldn't bet on the peseta finally dropping with this mob. I so wish Mourinho sticks it up em this season and they win absolutely zilch.

Barca are going about this all wrong, they're showing no respect or class and are really embarassing themselves with all this DNA and Barca blood talk. Well done in bringing them down to earth, i'm so glad Inter knocked some sense into them, some really big ego's were bruised that day.

I would also love to see Barca playing a real physical team like Stoke, that would be a right laugh watching those little ****e5 being torn to shreds.

Am I being naive here? Do you think it is official policy at Barcelona to get their players to publicly court targets such as Henry and Cesc so that the players become unsettled? Do they actually sit down at a meeting and say, right, our current target is Cesc Fabregas so Xavi, you start by giving some stuff about DNA, Iniesta, you follow up shortly with some more crap and Puyol, say something about Arsenal having to show some respect to Fabregas by allowing him to follow his heart home to good old Barca. We’ll do it like rotational fouling so no one gets into too much trouble. It will also confuse the hell out of FIFA/UEFA because they can’t see it as tapping up so they just conveniently ignore it. Don’t worry about our reputation either because we have UNICEF on our shirts.

Barca has this process down to a fine art. I've been looking at some of the reports of their courtship of Henry a year or two before he finally joined them. The similarities are clear with Laporta's modus operandi obvious. The process involves first getting the player to say that he would like to play for the club which they feel, with some justification, closes any potential claims of inducement. I'm pretty sure that Cesc was advised by someone close to him that if he were to announce prior to the Wold Cup that he would like to join Barca then they'd be able make it happen. Cesc must also be a little wiser now.

I agree with Amos, re Cesc being wiser. His fellow Catalans have made him go through such an uncomfortable period, these last 5 weeks, or so. He loves Arsenal but is Catalan and so has a soft spot for the club and we all agree he shall, some day return there. They have made him start something they couldn't finish as planned.

Sir H, I have since lost respect for the sorry lot at Barca; I fail to recollect any other club that goes about tapping up players as do the Barca heirachy. Real Sissies, if you ask me; and why have their recent club Presidents come with feminine first names, anyway? Joan? Sandra? (apologies to female Gooners).
