Pies is a wee bit late on this, as I was away ‘fishing’ yesterday, but hey, who am I to deny you this grainy clip of Cesc in tears at some award ceremony in Spain. Did he cry at the sight of his young self in a Barcelona shirt, and all those people shouting “Go to Barcelona, you idiot!”? Looks like it. That’s what the pro-Barca press think, of course – it’s a sign!
I’m with Wenger now. The only man who can halt the Cesc Rumour Juggernaut is Cesc. All it would take is one very brief statement, published on Arsenal’s official website: “I am staying at Arsenal this season.”
It’s easy to do. So why won’t he do it? Indeed, his failure to stop the whispers makes Fabregas complicit in the whole ugly affair.
Do the right thing, Cesc: stay at Arsenal for a couple more seasons, then swan off to your spiritual home.
