Cesc tells Arsene what he wants for Christmas

Add comment December 8th, 2009

We all wants different things for Christmas.  I want Assassin’s Creed II for PS3, Craig Burley wants his two front teeth, and Cesc Fabregas, our playmaker/captain/probable Messiah, wants a physical forward:

“Throughout the game [at Manchester City in the 3-0 Carling Cup defeat last Wednesday], we had a lot of possession but didn’t really have anyone to go in behind the defenders, apart from Carlos Vela. We had a lot of similar players who like the ball into their feet. Sometimes it’s true that you need a different kind of option.

Against Chelsea, I saw a team that was normal but a team that has probably the best striker in the world [Didier Drogba], and that makes such a difference. Without him, their team would not be the same. Perhaps we had the same kind of problem against Chelsea as the boys had at Manchester City, not really having someone whose game is to go beyond defenders.”

At the moment in time, however, it seems Cesc hasn’t been a good enough boy to get what he wants this Christmas.  In the past few days, Arsene has denied rumours linking us with Mario Balotelli, Marouane Chamakh, Edin Dzeko and, much to my relief, Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Not content with that, he’s also scotched the resurfacing rumours of a return to the club for Patrick Vieira.  He’s such a spoilsport, is Arsene. has published some advice for fans travelling to Olympiacos tomorrow night.  My advice would be to see if you can get a refund.  The injuries we picked up at the weekened guarantee that it’ll be as weak a side as Arsene can feasibly field.  Still, I suppose it’ll be interesting to see the likes of Wilshere again.  And Athens is a lovely place.

More tomorrow.
