Jack Wilshere – #trueGooner
So Fabregas is gone, but I can’t help but wonder if any Arsenal fans will be upset to see him go. Despite his undeniable talent it has been a while since Cesc was a true captain.
Jack Wilshere, on the other hand, continues to impress, this week tweeting throughout the Newcastle game he was injured for. While Cesc left the country when injured for a game Wilshere could have easily been mistaken for a genuine supporter, Tweeting: “Come on Arsenal! RVP first goal!”, “Am I really seeing what I just saw…….”, and; “That is not football! I am pretty sure Abou Diaby got sent off for that last year!” Each line would’ve been well at home in a packed north London pub.
Wilshere even had the decency to take on Barton via Twitter after the game. With equal amounts of talent, and the opposite attitude, there is no reason for anyone to shed a tear over Cesc’s disloyal ways.
Samir Nasri – #wishiwasthere
While Arsenal’s squad came out in Twitter force to wish Cesc congratulations and good luck with his Barca move, Samir Nasri’s message may have been tainted by a pinch of salt.
“Congratulation to my mate @cesc4official i will miss you world class player and top men” tweeted the barely Gunner.
His apparent typing error, the plural ‘men’ despite only one player leaving, could also be taken for a Freudian slip, with Samir already mentally preparing his own goodbye messages.
The clearout of fickle mercenaries couldn’t come sooner for Arsène Wenger’s red and white army.
Cesc Fabregas – #overandout
Apparently his biggest regret is that he wasn’t able to win a trophy as captain of Arsenal.
Perhaps it should be that he held the club who made him to ransom, leaving them with a gaping hole in their team, and a pathetic fee with which to replace him due to the underhand dealings of his beloved Barcelona.
However, as a regular feature on Taking the Tweets it’s only fitting that we give Fabregas the chance to sign off: “To all Gunners: A big thank you for your unconditional support during the last 8 yrs. Just say that I will always carry you in my heart!”
Personally I would prefer not to join Cesc and the party in his heart, as the Barca bench is likely to become very crowded if he takes all us Gooners with him!
