Time To Move On As Cesc Commits To Arsenal

Time To Move On As Cesc Commits To Arsenal

Cesc Fabregas has finally spoken regarding the speculation regarding his future at Arsenal.

The Spanish midfielder had started to come perilously close to burning all his bridges in North London until he finally got back to training yesterday and had another chat with Arsene Wenger.

Fabregas has always handled the speculation brilliantly, that was until he got together with a bunch of classless pricks for the World Cup at which he seemed to get caught up in the hype. But it seems that having got back to London, Le Prof has weaved his magic.

Cesc said 'Firstly I would like to apologise to all the Arsenal fans for not speaking sooner about my future but I have not known what I was going to do until this moment, 'I cannot deny that joining a club like Barcelona was not an attractive move for me.'

'This was the club where I learned my football, it is my home town where my friends and family are and a club where I have always dreamed of playing. There are not many players in the world who would not want to play for Barcelona.'

'I have had many conversations with Arsene Wenger both in person and over the phone over the last few months and although the content of those conversations will remain private, the conclusion is that Barcelona have had two formal offers rejected by Arsenal.'

'I am a professional and I fully understand that it is Arsenal's prerogative not to sell me. I owe a lot to the club, manager and the fans and I will respect their decision and will now concentrate on the new season ahead with Arsenal.'

'I can assure all the fans that now the negotiations have ended I will be 100 per cent focused on playing for Arsenal. I am an Arsenal player and as soon as I step out on to the pitch, that is the only club I will be thinking about.'

'I am looking forward to the start of the season and putting this speculation behind me.'


I was worried about what Cesc might have to say, but after this summer of uncertainty, I think we've come out the other side about as well as anyone could have expected.

I'd just like to say a massive 'thank you' and 'congratulations' to Arsene Wenger for having the balls to do what's right, and stand up to the bullies of Europe, it would have been easy just to accept the £30 Million (or possibly more after Cesc confirmed there were two offers), you have done this club and it's fans proud.

It's now now time to put all this behind us (for 12 months at least) and look forward to a new season of scintillating football.

Don't jump the gun gooners. I too am happy with his response. He's doing the offski, probably with Wenger, sooner rather than later. Order your drinks at the last chance saloon! Just my opinion.

Jump the gun? He's said he's staying, and we all know it's probably just for a year ..... but at least that's a year we won't have to listen to your witless monotonous drivel. It really is a great day all round :)

Putting this sordid saga behind us is a massive boost to our title challenge this season. Barca underestimated our club's strength and resolve. The club management deserves great credit

You must be bloody raging Clive. You're as desperate as those whoremasters at Camp Nou! Ha, ha, ha, bloody ha! The media are pretty ticked off too. None of their much touted transfer sagas have come off! Serves them right.

No one gives ***** all about your opinion Clive. Cesc Fabregas is an Arsenal FC player, live with it you miserable ****.

You are all wrong! I'm delighted! I always suspected he would stay another season. His thunder like face yesterday confirmed for me that it's the last hurrah. Don't be bitter gooners, you've had a good innings.

I wonder if you'll be delighted when he rips you a new one like he did at the Grove last year. Still cheers me up to watch your clown like defending on the restart.

You hang on to that memory Rocky. I'll just wait for the fat lady to sing. (She's clearing her throat.)
