    Anyone who thinks we don't need Cesc is a ****ing idiot. What happened when Ramsey, Ozil & Wilshere got injured? We were stuck with playing Arteta and Flamini together ffs. I don't ever want that rubbish to happen again. Never count on Diaby, because well, it's Diaby, Santi can blow very hot and cold and Tommy is a bit part player. We need Cesc, someone of his calibre wouldn't go amiss and if we could get him back there should be no debate.

    If other players are unhappy about having more competition, tough ****, maybe they should try harder at displacing the player rather than having a moan.

    So you're advocating signing a £30m+ player in case at least 4(Ramsey, Ozil, Jack and AOC) of our current midfielders get medium to long term injuries simultaneously?

    Yeah added on to being PL proven, and counting towards home grown. LVG and Pellers (assuming yaya goes) should be on their knees for his signature.

    Would chew my arm off for him back at Arsenal tbf but not sure where he would play, for a false 9 to work we need our wings to be on form, which means podolski needs to be replaced. I was wondering how he would fair in the role Arteta plays atm, he can keep the ball better than him and can push forward but with no real steel in the midfield we will probs get punished when he gets dispossessed higher up the pitch. Could go with the old Flamini-Fab but thats pretty unfair on Ramsey. Playing him as an AM would displace Ozil or push him onto the wing. So it just kinda seems he would be there when someone gets injured and tbh he's too good for that.
    I think we could get away with fabregas in the arteta role against lesser teams that way we can accommodate ramsey and ozil, but one of them would have to be dropped against stronger sides. If this does happen it would make it hard to fit wilshere in though, but then again we will probably have plenty of injuries to give evryone a good run of games.

    We spend every season moaning about injuries and lack of squad depth.

    Then when somebody like Cesc is available, people say we don't need him?? wtf

    Man City (the champions don't forget) would never say "Let's not buy this world class player, we already have one in his position".

    And don't bring up the money, cos nobody is using money as the reason for not wanting Cesc.

    I'd be so pissed off if he went to Chelsea. Of course we are bound to get injuries, we need Fabregas.

    He's literally asking to come back to Arsenal - and I'm sure I read an article a few years ago where Wenger was all like "Fabregas will always be welcomed back at Arsenal"

    Have the feeling were all getting done by paper gossip and Cesc won't even be in the PL next year.

    Everybody needs to just relax though tbh. We don't even know if he's really even leaving Barca at this point, let alone where he's likely to go. It's gonna be a summer-long saga so there's no point fretting and speculating now.

    If he ends up at somewhere other than emirates I'll be so pissed off. Anyone saying there won't be a place for him, well just look at our injuries. Everyone moaned about our lack of depth when Ramsey, ozil, cazorla, Walcott, Wilshere etc were out and now apparently we don't need any more players.

    We have money. He wants to come back. I see no reason why we shouldn't buy him. Even if he is a luxury player- we should still buy him.

    I don't get what the problem is, even if we fork out £30m it's fine. It's not like we have limited funds? We can go over £100m this summer and FFP won't chat **** to us.

    I'd be so pissed off at Arsene if we don't get him

    i'd respect him a lot more if he went to city rather than to us i think.

    it would show he has character and a backbone and that he doesn't let his emotions force him in to irrational decisions

    This is just press coming to their own conclusion- far fetch as always. Wenger knew last summer when we signed Ozil that Cesc was possibly going to be available this summer (words that came out of his mouth). He was interested then, pretty sure that he's still interested now IF Cesc is available.
    Fair enough, but either way I don't get this hype of getting Cesc back. Don't get me wrong I'd be stoked if we landed him, but he's not a priority as I'm more concerned with DM, RB and CF positions. Cesc would be a bonus but for now he's a distraction we don't need.

    Lol, your fellow Arsenal fans are going insane I think.

    If you do get him, it'll be on high wages, and it'd result in Ramsey/Wilshere/AOC's development being stunted significantly.

    You also still have Cazorla and Rosicky. Podolski and Walcott on the wings.

    I can 100% see why you wouldn't buy him.

    But it's going to be funny when CFC end up with:

    Costa
    Hazard - Oscar - Willian
    Matic - Fabregas
    Luis - Terry - Cahill - Azpilicueta
    Courtois

    Man like cesc should be on the first train back to Catalunya if he can't deliver famo. I expect messi performances from this chap since this is the homecoming of the prodigal son kmt.

    Or the more likely scenario is that Chelscum will buy Koke (who Barca are also interested in) and Cesc will stay at Barca. Cesc isn't a Mou player in the first place, he's an artist, not a destroyer and doesn't work hard enough defensively. I don't see why he'd let go of Mata/KDB and then buy Cesc 😕

    Would be astonished if Cesc went to Chelsea tbh, really cant see him going there. Also think Mourinho would have a fit over having a player of such unbridled creativity and flair in his team, probably will sign Fellaini instead :laugh:

    Outside chance of City though, but I think he'll stay at Barca.

    I understand your frustration... but even looking at injuries, it'd be a higher priority for me, and much more efficient in the long run, to just ****ing sort out the injuries once and for all than to sign Cesc to cover for them....
