Fabregas in dream act
It is what dreams are made of for all footballers.
If you do not agree, ask Joan Cruff, Marco van Basten, Roberto Baggio, Zico, Paolo Maldini, Michel Platini and even Miroslav Klose just what it would have meant to be called a world champion.
To the delight of most Arsenal fans, a man who has served the club well enough to even merit the go ahead to a desired departure this summer, has got his hands on that famous old trophy.
And it was no fluke either. Fabregas, unlike a typical less recognized World Cup winner, was not there to just make up the numbers for the Spanish national team.
His contributions were often limited to coming off the bench during the tournament, but when he finally did so again on Sunday, Cesc was half responsible for the Spanish victory, teeing up Iniesta who netted the game winner.
He became the first Gunner to claim a winner’s medal in the competition during his Arsenal stay since Emmanuel Petit and Patrick Vieira did in 1998 – all at the expense of the unfortunate Robin van Persie of course.
Cesc Fabregas was always going to be involved one way or the other today.
Arsenal’s skipper sat on the bench for 85 minutes until Vicente del Bosque sent him into action with Spain growing desperate.
And following his introduction, Fabregas teamed up well with fellow midfield maestros Xavi and Iniesta in probing the Netherlands’ tiring defense.
Playing out the biggest minutes of his career, the 23-year-old was more adventurous than ever in attack as he hit a long range effort just wide after a strong run from midfield before finding himself through on goal moments later.
But the normally cool-headed Spaniard fluffed his lines this time as the goalkeeper saved his shot.
Fabregas though, made amends in the dying seconds of extra time as his killer pass found Iniesta who thumped home the winning goal.
dont forget emanuel petit scoring teh third goal in the 98 finals, he was tsill at arsenal.
This just shows Fabregas can do better and more with ARSENAL. Fab4 stay
I sill think he has a special loyalty to Wenger and will give us at least one more year of that long contract(?). Seeing 7 Barca players in the Spanish team and he on the Bench surel should hint at what he position might be at Barca against who he is at Arsenal. Or is it money against loyalty?
I know my man can do that and even more… Go fab. go gunners, go arsenal!!!
I prefer Robin lifting the World Cup instead.
U av don it again,fab,in d arsenal way…mor of u at emmy stad
Alan Hansen typically was a two faced CUNT ! ………. Spouting the justice for the team who consistently get it down & play football whilst labelling the over physical opponent a disgrace.
When it’s been Arsenal kicked around in similar fashion by the likes of Blackburn & Bolton he has different attitude in keeping with always being anti Arsenal. He drooled on & on about Iniesta whilst neglecting to mention Fabregas’s part which was only mentioned by Lee Dixon.
Great News ! ……..
‘Speaking on TF1, the national French Television Station, Wenger told viewers he has spoken to the Barcelona President, Sandro Rosell, and told him in no uncertain terms that Cesc is not for sale.
Wenger was speaking as a match summariser following the World Cup Final, won by an Iniesta goal set up to perfection by the Arsenal Captain.
This news follows the report in this morning’s Sunday Times, which detailed news of a 2 Million pound property that has just been purchased by Cesc in the leafy Hertfordshire town of St Albans ‘.
Dat was my guy u saw…in d world,only 2 passes exist.fabrepass and odas.dat was don d gunnaz way.we r proud of u,fab.let’s go Premier.our head is there…up gunnaz
Who saw d trik dat gave a once-in-4years victory?.his name is fabregas.a 5-star gunners striker,midfielder,scorer,playmaker,uhm…ehn…infact,IM SHORT OF WORDS.tel dem fab stays flying.he remains an emir(a ruler in northern nigeria)
My heart is telling me that he will stay, while my head is telling me that like how he is has won the world cup with about 60% of the Barca players he going to want to repeat the same success next season and seasons to come. If I were Cesc and I really wanted to stay, then I would carry this feeling of winning the World Cup to win trophies for the team that mould me into the World Class player that he is
guys check what cesc said of rvp
and i quote this line from the source
“‘He is a great guy and a great leader and he has been really unlucky with injuries and I really hope that he can have his moment next year and hopefully he can win something.’” – cesc
check out “have his moment next year and hopefully he can win something”
why is cesc referring to winning trophy as “he” and not “we”?
and “next year” means epl or CL… means ARSENAL and not Holland…
does this mean Cesc is leaving and out of joy he accidentally leaked it to us?
Without Fabregas superb assist spain wouldn’t have become champions. I pray nxt season will b 4 d gonas,but we need more new faces cos all our 2 signings are replacement. Up Fabregas! Up Spain!! Up Arsenal fc!!!
I was quietly hoping for Holland to lift the World Cup but alas, that’s not to be..my heart goes to Robin.
Why hello there fella!
Goonerton, don’t read too much into it. He’s staying!
Congrats to Spain and, Cesc Fabregas!
No more World Cup..Bring on the EPL please!
Hey, Randy what’s going on my man? Looking forward to the new season and hopefully chat will be up and running. Cheers!
Despite my fears he continues to be a class guy. Don,t parse his words Guys he is staying and if Joe C comes we will have a great middle line even without Joe C we will have a great line. Another defender and experienced goalkeeper then look Chelski ManU and Man City we are on our way. A final thot. The fact that Cesc first thot was for his club team mate shows all the talk we heard about spirit in the club house etc etc is true!! GREAT GUNNERS
