What can Fabregas expect on Arsenal return?

I am sure that the former Arsenal midfielder and club captain Cesc Fabregas will be hoping for a decent reception when he comes back to the Emirates to play for the first time since he left the club for Barcelona and La Liga back in August of 2011. But I don’t think that he will get his wish.

Although Arsenal fans have not looked at Fabregas in the same way as some other departing players like Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie, probably because we understood that being born in Barcelona and spending his formative years in their famous La Masia academy would always make him want to play for them.

The problem is that the Spaniard is now playing for our Premier League rivals Chelsea and it does not help that they look set to win the title. Neither does it help that Fabregas has been full of praise for his new manager Jose Mourinho who has had a long running feud with his former mentor Arsene Wenger.

So I reckon that Cesc is in for some stick on Sunday. I would like to think that the Arsenal fans would remember the years of great service he gave to the Gunners and maybe he will get some applause at first, but then it will be all about the present situation and judging from the video from Youtube below in which an Arsenal fan calls him a disgrace and demands the Fabregas banner be removed from the stadium, I think the Chelsea man is in for a tough time. What do guys think of the situation?

    1. Which one of the three scenarios makes this season to be the most successive to Arsenal in the last 10 years?

      1. Beating Chelsea, United and finishing in 2nd place in the EPL
      2. Beating Chelsea, losing to United, finishing in 2nd place and wining the FA Cup
      3. Losing to Chelsea, beating United, finishing 2nd and lifting the FA cup

      In my opinion, i will go for the first scenario

      1. I can’t see anyway of describe losing in the FA cup final in exchange for temporary bragging rights over either CFC or Man Utd as good or successful. A trophy beats any individual match win where the result probably won’t have any significance. Win FA cup, beat one of the 2, draw with the other and finish no worse than 3rd would be good for me in the circumstances.

  1. He will be in alot of pain if at any point in the game,he happens to find himself in Coquelin’s buffer zone with the ball.

  2. Meh i sympathise with the guy. I can understand why he wanted to go back to Barcelona and i can understand why he’d join Chelsea if Wenger said no to him rejoining the club.

    1. Our great understanding was thrown back into our faces by that che move. If we had never taken him from barca there is a good likelihood he would have moved another Spanish team. It is because of what we done for him that he is in such high regard in Britain, its just a pity we didnt do it with someone of admirable character ie Arteta when he was a youth.

  3. A drubbing at the hands of the gunners which he will have to witness from coq’s back pocket.

    Lets destroy Chelshit and wipe that grin off mou’s stupid smug face.
    4-0 to arsenal

  4. Champions League seedings has changed the likelihood of being in a tough group is higher,we now need to start competing for the title and actually win it in the coming years!

    1. Nah… we can always go down the europa route lol meet up with spurs liv and rest of clowns giving them a spanking on way to final.. nothing much but better than nothing.

  5. I agree with the author….great reception when he steps on the pitch is deserved, but when the whistle blows, its game on.

    It’s been a good season, can still end being a great season and aside from finishing (at least) second and winning the FA cup, beating Chelsea is the next major monkey to get off our backs. COYG’s!!

  6. all the players who left arsenal have won titles πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™
    im sad πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™

      1. Song, Vermaelen, Afobe, Eduardo, Dixon, Winterburn, Wrighty, Merson, Ljungberg, Aliadiere, Senderos, Pennant, Bentley, Reyes, Luzhny, djourou.

        Or do you mean all players who have left Arsenal and won silverware with new clubs are the only ones who matter and only ones who you care about… if so you should have said im sad former Gunners are or have won titles.

        Better off just focusing on what we can win, whether next match or FA cup, but if you must look back well look no further than the Arsenals achievements.

  7. my chelsea fan mate said that being second is just bein the first of 18 losers πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™
    so many sad πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™

  8. sorry to be unpopular but screw him, I was a big fan, but the long saga he put us thru only to go to his “boyhood” team sucked, arsenal did everything possible to keep him, and HE is NOT even still at his boyhood team! no, he is across town playing for that Piece of crap Jose, hey cesc, screw you you self serving arrogant jerk!

  9. Lets boo the c..t! No time for him whatsoever win the game and give him and Maureen hell for the whole game!!

  10. Great Reception???,tell you the truth Im not one of those gunners who started supporting the gunners during the invicibles or early Wenger double winning years,quite honestly i wasnt ineterested in football and I liked a certain Crespo and Shevchenko meaning I liked the blue half of London,surprisingly when Mourinho joined I stopped watching football all together,till one glorious Champions League Night,It was my first ever Match there was a certain 20 year old highly rated youngster who scored a wonder goal that day he played with such skill and passion ever since then I started supporting arsenal that was during the barren years.I actually liked Barcelona because of their similarity with the arsenal,so when Fabregas joined Barca I started to watch them a bit more I still loved Arsenal and I was extremely passionate,the other players i adored left in painful manners,while some left which was still painful:i.e Eboue.I always taught cesc would come back and when it was official he was leaving Barca i said Finally almost hosting a party.Well reports started coming out that he is going to join chelsea and i laughed so hard and said he would be the last player on earth to do that,when it became official words cant express how i felt,He was the reason I started watching football he lit up the emirates with exquisite touches through balls to walcott,its a shame I would have preferred he joined bayern,or remained in barca its terrible reading the comments he made recently about the emirates,This was a captain,someone who led,anyways,like ive learnt and Arsenal have learnt,We dont live in the past Like Liverpool(no pun πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ ) WE ARE THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE(Crowley)(Puma)WE ARE ARSENAL…..Bring on the Blues….COYGGGG!!!!!!!!

  11. I think we should give him applause. It’s the classy thing to do.

    Plus if we boo him, we’re showing fear of Chelsea, and that’s not clever.
