'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fabregas Happy With His Goal

Cesc Fabregas has expressed his relief at scoring a Premier League goal for the first time in 11 months, and it that it came against our Old bogey side from Bolton.

Fabregas scored seconds after the restart (as I was throwing the dreggs of my pint down my throat, grrrrr) and it proved to be the winner, and a goal that in all probability gave us the Champions League football we so badly crave.

'It has been amazing, crazy. I have had so many chances, but I have not been taking them,' said the Spaniard.

'It is also important for my confidence as well.

'In November, I said I should have scored 10 goals - that is the way it is in football sometimes. You score one, then you score five and then maybe go five games without a goal.

'I was saying to myself that it did not upset me because it is not normal to have so many chances and not score.

'Sometimes you make the shot of your life, and you hit the woodwork, sometimes the keeper made a fantastic save and sometimes I was just not taking it.

'Fortunately against Bolton was the day - let's see if I can score some more now.'

And before I get bashed for being one of these fans who is never in his seat for the whistles, this was the first time in my life I have missed a minute of a game (sodding queues for beer) and after missing that goal, it will be the last.

I missed a Ljungberg goal at the Valley a few years back, new year's day and I just had to have a whizz. The only time in my life I've missed a minute of a game. All I remember was hearing the cheer as I was giving it the old final shake.

I was at a pub and shame for me, i was looking down at my plate of over-easy eggs and home fries while Gilberto played the through ball. The girlish shriek of the guy sitting beside me called my attention to the tele and upon seeing two red and whites in the away box of 3 confused orcs, my heart rate soared higher than a clichy cross. I was too confused to understand what was going.

I didn't know wether or not it was a goal or a replay of the first goal so I threw my plastic (you can't call is a glass can you) on the floor and ran back in, saw everyone celebrating and grabbed some geezer and gave him a shake.

lol, nice goal though, Fabregas has huge composure and techique that he didn't bottle it and just smash a shot in but he took his time and waited so he can be sure he scores.

Anybody see what that Turd Kevin Nolan said about Cesc?? talking about temper which is a bit rich comeing from him.
ExRox
I think it's a fair assesment by Nolan, sure he meant it in a nice way rather than having a dig at Cesc. Press are always going to try and make a story out of it. Headline could've been Nolan: Cesc a pleasure to watch. But they choose not to. All hail Cesc!

I am happy with his goal too, the ball seemed to stick to his feet for an age before he shot.
gunnerb
i agree with saisho, press always make a bitter meal out of things.
Phantom of the Grove
my fave part of that fab goal was the way he lost it after slotting it home. It sums up the guy's desire for the arsenal. »»Arsene Knows««

im situated on the end on the aisle,it kicked off,and yep you guessed it some person who cant tell the time made me stand up so he could shuffle past me to his seat,but to make matters worse he stood on my brand new suede MDT trainers,as i tutted and bent down to wipe them clean i heard a roar,and i just managed to lift my head up in time to see cesc slot the ball into the net,but i didnt see the build up or through ball by gilberto,i dont know who annoy me more,early leavers or late arrivers both sets are kuntz
fran merida
how happy am i to see that fabregas finally broke the duck. . .. i hope he continues scoring now because the way he has been denied so many goals dis season is amazing
abdleb
