Do Arsenal actually NEED Cesc Fabregas? I don’t think so….

The curious case of Cesc Fabregas by MrAFC

Cesc Fabregas, a name that will forever be in the hearts of all Arsenal fans. The diminutive Spaniard who went from youth prodigy to captain in just a matter of seasons, and who led the team with purpose and aggression, the type that had been lacking since a certain Patrick Viera. The golden boy, who could strike a ball onto a five pence piece from forty yards away, and carried the burden after the departure of the invincibles. There is no doubt about it, he will always be remembered as a legend, the boy wonder that symbolised everything that is great about the latest Arsene Wenger era; ‘we don’t buy superstars, we make them’. Now, with his stock falling in Barcelona and the fact that we have first refusal, the pursuit of our former captain is well and truly on, but there is just one question; Do we actually need him?

Why Arsenal should beware of bringing back former players

Do we really want to bring back former players? by K.M.

Heading into the transfer window, not too much is rumored about Arsenal yet, except a few former players we might look to bring back. Now first of all, Wenger rarely brings former players although we have seen it in recent years a few times including Flamini who is in the current squad.

But honestly does Arsenal football club need the rumored people? As good as Carlos Vela is doing at Sociedad, he is no signing of intent. We need some pace on the left but I’d target Di Maria if I wanted to show intent. What happened to Draxler? If he is as good as Hazard, the money would be worth it.

Man United want Fabregas, but Fabregas wants Arsenal!

Every year there are more and more Fabregas-to-Arsenal rumours, but this year it is looking like it could actually come to pass, now that the 27 year-old’s love affair with the Barcelona fans seems to have come to an end.

Poor old David Moyes tried very hard to secure captain Fab last summer without success, but now the incoming Man United manager Louis Van Gaal has also made the Spanish international his number one target after losing interest in Toni Kroos, according to a report in todays Daily Star.

Arsenal rumours May 25th – Fabregas, Griezmann, Bernard and Schneiderlin

On the day that the Arsenal Director Lord Harris has promised Arsene Wenger almost unlimited funds to improve the team, the daily papers are full of big-money Arsenal transfer rumours to help Wenger in his search!

To start with, the Daily Mirror says that Arsenal are in pole position to re-sign Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona. Apparently if Barcelona put Captain Fantastic on the transfer list then they need to inform Arsenal as soon as they receive a bid for him, and Wenger gets to have first refusal. Could Wenger turn down the chance to bring Cesc back to the Emirates?

Arsenal odds on for Draxler and Fabregas nears Barca exit

Barcelona midfielder and former favourite son of Arsenal, Cesc Fabregas, could spark a bidding war between Arsene Wenger’s side and the Manchester clubs. Barcelona are reportedly ready to listen to offers for the 26-year old whose return to the Catalan club has not been as rosy as he expected. He was booed by the home supporters during Barcelona’s 2-1 win against Athletic Bilbao and that was not the first time.

In a recent online poll, 50 percent of the Barcelona fans that voted would prefer to see Fabregas leave the club. Fabregas is in his third season since he left Arsenal where he became a superstar but the club’s supporters never took to him. He has often been used as a scapegoat in the club’s recent failings.

Cesc Fabregas odds-on to join Arsenal – and Wenger is staying!

With the transfer window approaching the bookies have started speculating on where any available players will be moving to in the summer, including Fabregas, as well as some other interesting stuff like whether Arsene Wenger will still be in charge at Arsenal next season.

First of all we have Paddy Power, who are Arsenal’s official bookie, who have the Gunners as 8/11 odds on to be Cesc Fabregas’ next club, with Man United at 5/1 and, surprisingly, Bayern Munich next at 10/1 and Chelsea at 16’s.

Hello fellow Gooners. Let me start this piece with a quick thank you to the staff of Justarsenal.com-my T-shirt came, the one I won for getting the result/striker and minute right (by the way, why dont we play that anymore?). So, Thanks you guys :-)!

Was Arsenal boss right to comment on Barcelona ban?

Wenger backs Barca ban! by Ash

As I’m sure you are all aware by now, in non Arsenal news, Barcelona have been banned from making any moves in the transfer market for the next two transfer windows. Although this doesn’t make too much of a difference to Arsenal, manager Arsene Wenger has been chipping in with a statement about the issue.

Do Arsenal have TOO MUCH focus on youth development?

Is youth an Arsenal value? by Ash

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been criticised several times during the past few years over a lack of success and not moving on with the modernisation of football. And many are quick to state that the fact he is persistent in building the ‘team of the future’ rather than focus on the current Arsenal team , offers a good reason behind why Arsenal haven’t challenged in the same way as they did before under Wenger.

A non-Arsenal fans view of Wenger – It’s not good!!

Wenger should wave goodbye once and for all by lloydschatz

Arsene Wenger will reach an incredible milestone this weekend when his Arsenal side takes on Chelsea. Wenger will be taking charge of his 1000th game as Arsenal manager, something that probably will never be matched at the club and a Premier League record only bettered by Sir Alex Ferguson. There are rumours that this is going to be the time that he will sign an extension to his contract that runs out in the summer. But I can’t help but think he is being rewarded for being a failure.

Fabregas set to cheer Arsenal all the way to BPL title

For Arsenal fans, Cesc Fabregas is a rarity. Despite him leaving the Gunners against all of our wishes and leaving Arsene Wenger with a real problem replacing him, the Spanish international is not seen along with the likes of van Persie, Nasri, Adebayor and other former Gunners who we would cheerfully watch being set upon by a pack of wild ferrets.

There are various reasons for this, the main one being that he did not abandon us at the first chance and went back to the club he supported as a boy and always wanted to play for, FC Barcelona. The fact that they are one of the biggest clubs in the world and not one of our direct rivals helps us to understand his decision as well.

Arsenal fans do NOT want Rvp or Cole back! Maybe Cesc….

The return of the unwanted rivals? by Ash

Although the transfer window has shut down permanently for this season and will not re-open again until a few weeks after Arsenal have potentially had their celebratory Premier League winners’ open bus parade, but the transfer speculation is already in full swing. The news is so surprising that it has to be shared with Arsenal fans because this really would be one massive shock if it happened.
