Finally, the desired outcome has transpired in the Cesc Fabregas case. We have all been waiting for someone, somewhere to say something, anything that would give us an indication of what the hell is going on. And our very own Tiny Vampire, Andres Iniesta, comes to the rescue. He has had a conversation with the Catalan midfielder, and knows what the deal is. He spilled the beans to News of the World.
“Cesc wants to be with us, but he told me how close the Arsenal fans are to his heart.”
Here are some more quotes, which mean that for a few months at least we can go on with life, and not being called names by Arsenal fans.
“He is a special player and I hope he wins the title at Arsenal this season. For them to win Cesc will have to stay fit and injury-free but he deserves to finish with a title.
“For all the work he has put in at Arsenal it would be a shame if it was all fruitless. I have seen time after time Lionel Messi win games for Barcelona when the rest of the team have not been on form and Cesc can do that for Arsenal this season.
“Cesc is such a special player that he could carry a team to the title on his own and I hope he does it this coming season. It would be brilliant if Arsenal’s hero could lift the title as captain during his last season. I think that it would be fantastic for everybody.”
Awwww, I’m about to get all weepy. Now, question for the class. You have 40m, and you know what this team needs. How would you spend it?
Dumb-assed transfer rumor of the week
Time for a new feature, kids. Silly Season is bizarre, because some awesome stuff pops up, players going hither and yon, for bags of chicken bones or used footy boots. But my favorite in a while comes from our very own El Mundo Deportivo, who says that we will swap with AC Milan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic for Brazilian defender Thiago Silva. Wow.
