How do you feel about this?
Because I’m absolutely livid!
Cesc is a world class player, and we struggled last season when Aaron Ramsey got injured last season. He’s a proven talent in the Premier League, into his peak years and would make any of the top teams even better.
So why don’t we want him?
Honestly, I have no f*cking idea. Maybe Arsenal have limited resources and Arsene is determined to strengthen in other areas.
But we all know that by the end of the summer, we’ve end up with a few signings off being true Premier League contenders. It’s been the same old story for the last 9 seasons, when it comes to the league at least.
I’ve said all along we should get Cescy back. It makes so much sense on so many levels – he would give the players, club and fans a huge boost, and he scores goals. His assist record is fantastic as well and we have a ready made replacement captain for Thomas Vermaelen. So what’s the deal?
Arsene Wenger must believe on some level that Cesc is not the player he once was. In typical Arsene fashion, he will believe that Cesc being at Arsenal would hinder the progress of the other players – but we know that’s ridiculous. Cesc was brought up in a team with midfielders like Pires, Vieira, Gilberto, Parlour, Freddie, Reyes and Edu. With that midfield, we went a whole season unbeaten.
What’s our current midfield? We have Ramsey who is our best player but his injury record is patchy. Jack Wilshere has his injury problems, as does Tomas Rosicky (plus the Czech is over 30 now). Mikel Arteta is getting on, and Flamini tends to pick up a lot of yellow cards.
Seriously, I have no idea why we’re not signing him!
