Wenger - Fabregas & Nasri to Stay

Wenger - Fabregas & Nasri to Stay

On rather more positive news after our previous article, Arsene Wenger says he`s positive that both Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas will be Arsenal players come the start of the season.

There has been much speculation regarding our two most creative players of the 2010/11 campaign, indeed most were resigned, and had made peace with the fact that Fabregas was joining Barcelona, however the unsavoury nature of the Nasri rumours were a little harder to stomach.

However, speaking matter-of-factly for the first time on the subject, Wenger says he expects both players to stay.

'Yes [I expect Cesc to stay]. As simple as that,' said Le Prof.

'I have never spoken about what has happened behind closed doors but Cesc loves the Club. We know the Barcelona story goes on for years now and we have to close that. Now we focus on the new season, hopefully with Cesc Fabregas."

'Yes [I expect Nasri to stay as well]. There is always speculation when a player has one year to go on his contract that he might leave the club but Samir Nasri is very happy at the Club and committed to stay at the Club."

'I hope he will sign a new contract but I am not the only one to decide that.'


One would be forgiven for thinking that this could just be some big talk hoping to drive up the prices, however our admirable stance last summer proved we`re up to the task of standing up for ourselves, and certainly in the Fabregas saga, it`ll be even easier to resist this year considering Barca refuse to even match their own valuation of the player from their last attempt at signing the Spaniard.

A cynic would interpret this as setting a target price which has to be met before we let the two leave. I hope we can retain one out of the two. If Samir leaves after Cesc does knowing fully well that he will pass over the opportunity of becoming the creative fulcrum of the side one would have to think that he is motivated by money only.

Yeah the key word in there is 'hopefully' lol. Far from a concrete statement more like a xmas wish list. "I expect cesc to stay I expect nasri to stay". Yeah and based on last seasons collapse all Arsenal fans expected you to have pulled your finger out of your brown hole and got us a couple of signings wrapped up by now old son but you can't (as the Rolling stones almost put it) always get what you expect.

Never mind you've already started scraping the bottom of the barrel with Downing.

And when we touch the bottom of the barrel we'll find Mickey Owen with his crocky little legs resting up on his man utd footstool as he counts his well earned wages.

This is very different from Wenger compared to last year when we took a more Modric like stance of "We're not selling".

OT : http://www.ministryofsoccer.org/2011/07/fc-barcelona-host-a-wedding-at-the-nou-camp/ but this was just too hilarious to pass up. Now we know why Barca are called more than a club - credits Twitter. :)

Holding a civil wedding ceremony at the stadium costs between 1,800 and 2,400 euros depending on the number of guests, according to the club. The price for the banquet begins at 110 euros per person and the club can accommodate up to 750 guests. Extras, such as displaying the trophies which Barcelona won last season, including the Champions League, at the banquet cost 1,500 euros. "The dream of so many Barcelona fans is finally possible, celebrating your wedding at Barca," the club says in its brochure to promote its new wedding services.
