I was having this discussion with a friend the other day, bearing in mind the recent pursuit of Cesc by Barca which of these two scenarios would you prefer



A: Sell him now for good money and rebuild your squad for another title challenge

or

B: Reject all bids from Barca (Im not sure how many years he has on his contract but I pretty sure he has got a few years left) continue to challenge with the Current side and risk the possibility of him not signing an extension and possibly leaving to Barca on a Bosman/buy-out of contract in the future?
Also would you think he is a cunt for not getting you a fee if that happens?

Option A.

I don't like the idea of keeping a player who isn't 100% focused on the team he plays for, would rather sell him & purchase a suitable replacement or push Nasri into the middle.

Tony Starks
12th July '10, 04:42 PM
Option B (and eventually he wont leave on a bosman, no one does)

We have him on a five year deal. We have the luxury of holding onto him for at least 2-3 years before our hands are forced into selling him.

If Barca aint gonna give us his rightful price cos they're strapped we aint gonna give away our captain just because they want to impress their fans with puttin him on the bench.

Cesc's performances wont dip as his heart is fully with the club and hes a great captain. I understand his desire to want to win things at Barca but i honestly feel we're very close to achieving our potential. Just a signing or two away imo

JACK
12th July '10, 04:46 PM
A - if we're buying Gourcuff and can still buy at least 3 other, also of appropriate standard

B - if he acts like a professional and performs his 100% despite said want to get away right until the end which is 2014 i think

hard to say straight for me

Sir Kippington
12th July '10, 04:48 PM
Yes im liking this.
The opinions are nice and polarized.

Its interesting to me since we have a similar-ish situation with Torres and I'm undecided.

B.

He should be kept at all costs.

Have enough confidence in Ramsey doing a good job once he's fully settled after his injury, and Nasri plays well in the middle and Wilshere is one who can hopefully progress to the standard which is being talked about of him. But Fabregas carries the side, he's our only player who plays to a very high level more or less weekly and he's our lynch-pin.

If he does leave in a few years those other three will be more than ready to try and fill the gap in their own way.

Highly doubt he would go on a free given the leeway we have with his contract and Wenger's financial nous (he's tied until 2014 I believe), but given your scenario I'd still keep him at the expense of a transfer fee

Yes Naturally.

Big Money im talking -like enough to get 3-4 top draw players



@FG good point.
Ramsey looks like he will be alot and I feel you about the lynchpin thing.
Like he is more than just a good player, he is the heartbeat of the team , face of the club etc

im still sometimes getting the impression Cesc is not necessarily a playmaker, more a central mid/offensive mid depending on the day, and, obviously its still early to say but Ramsey looked even less playmakerish than that to me.

also feel Nasri could replicate the moving winger role he showed at OM, would surely prefer that than sticking him in the middle

FG
12th July '10, 05:13 PM
Think he's just developed his game, getting more goals than he ever has and is more threatening going forward.

Think Ramsey's game is naturally similar to the matured Fabregas now, though of course not on the same level. Ramsey is a more direct and attacking player than the Cesc of a few years back without the vast passing range.

Think they're similar in that they can add impetus and drive to the midfield when the chips are down, though obviously Cesc can simply dictate and control games on top of that.

For me Nasri's best league games last season were when he was in centre midfield in Cesc's absence

Allow forcing to players to stay when they wanna go home and play with their friends (nh) and win trophies

sell him for at least 50

Sir Kippington
12th July '10, 05:18 PM
TBH if he stays i would take that as a big sign of commitment, you can imagine half of the Barca squad was in his ears about leaving all summer.

I think Nasri is wasted on the flanks too tbh, unless your looking to play very narrow

JACK
12th July '10, 05:22 PM
thats the whole thing, its complete opposite to his Marseille time. fuck knows why he's taking so long to settle in, or whatever reason making it like that, but i would love to see that here sometime soon

cesc isnt a berbatov-esque figure who will cause trouble

plus he's already captain so no chance of him following henry or berbatov and giving the manager ultimatums

also on the nasri point, he's not merking like he did at marseille as basically he's not that good. french league is shit and made him look better than he is. ifyou get gourcuff he'll also flop.

on topic its interesting cos fabregas is arsenals best player but at the same time him playing in the centre seems to massively limit arshavin and nasri's impact

"Cesc is our captain, he is so important to us and we want to keep him, that is why we were not listening to any offers.

fabregas will come to realise soon hopefully that going to Barcelona would not be the best thing for his career. At arsenal we may of not won anything but we've come close and the next 2 years if we don't win either the prem or cl he should be allowed the right to leave. We are re-building our defence which was our main problem.

nothing of the sort. i went to the barnet game on saturday and simpson was OVERLY poor..... he lost the ball constantly, barely won a single header, couldn't hold it up and mislaid pass after pass. to play in that role he needs to do more.

both his goals were laid on a plate for him, although the first was still an excellent finish.

JET, Lansbury, Wilshere, Gibbs, Frimpong (1/2), Henderson (1/2) and Walcott are all English (or qualify to play) and are over in Austria.

Frimpong particularly impressed on Saturday and it will be interesting to see if he manages to secure a loan if he has an impressive pre-season.

and yeah Frimpong has said he wants to play for Ghana, much to the annoyance it seems of Arsenal and Henderson will probably chose Ireland but until they are capped they can still play for England.

Jay Simpson played for the reserves lasy night and was again poor. if he gets good servicr he is lethal but without it he is a league 1 player.

rsène Wenger is confident Arsenal can improve on last season's final League position, despite the money being spent by other clubs.

Manchester City in particular have splashed the cash in an attempt to muscle their way into the Premier League title race but Wenger is still convinced his side can improve on the third-place finish they achieved last term.

"I am very confident [we'll do better than last season]," he said. "We know in England that the Premier League is the biggest league in the world and everybody invests a lot of money.

"We invest in our work, in our beliefs, in the quality of our behaviour and I am confident that will pay off.

"We finished third last year and we hope we can improve on that. But the race will be tough."

We really need to sign a center back....we only have 3 at the mo

apparently the bosnian captain is close to signing. not sure how true that is, because my understanding is he is a left footed/left sided player who can play at lb as well.

tony adams also said that tv5 wasnt the type of player arsenal needed......i know nothing of him other than what i have read and seen on youtube. people are slating him because he isnt mertersacker imo. if he joins, then he will have the chance to impress me.

sparky isn't letting schwarzer or konchesky leave so wonder what that means for the goalkeeping dilemma.

i would sooner a centre half with premier league experience or someone from italy.

Spain international Cesc Fabregas has confirmed he is staying with Arsenal for the new Premier League season.

The talented 23-year-old has been heavily linked with Barcelona this summer and he has admitted that two formal offers were tabled for his services.

The Gunners rejected Barca's moves and never changed their position throughout the summer, stating consistently that he was not for sale.

While Fabregas admits he was seriously tempted to rejoin the Catalan giants, he is now fully focused on performing for Arsenal.
He has been with the club since he was 16 after leaving Camp Nou and appreciates everything they have done for him over the years.

Arsène Wenger is still pondering which goalkeeper will he his No 1 for the forthcoming season.

The Arsenal manager has also revealed that one of his four shotstoppers will head out on loan this season. But he is yet to decide who that will be.

Lukasz Fabianski accompanied the manager at a press conference in Warsaw on Friday evening. Both the 25-year-old and the Gunners' other Polish keeper Wojciech Szczesny will feature in Saturday's friendly against Legia Warsaw. However, the manager still doesn't know who will line up in goal at Anfield in just over a week's time.

"Still players fight for their place," he said. "Tomorrow Fabianski has another opportunity to show that he can play No 1.

"Wojciech is a goalkeeper of huge quality. At the moment we want to play for the title so I believe he needs some more experience to compete directly for the first goalkeeper position.

"But it depends a little bit. We have four goalkeepers, one of them will go out on loan, three have to stay so we do not know yet who will go out."

strikes me as he might not get a new keeper afterall. smh.

I don't understand why he doesn't do like Fergie and spend a bit of money on a good keeper who is mid 30's. Would not cost more that 5m and would tie them over for 2 or 3 years until the pole is ready for them

i think he tried that with schwarzer, but didn't feel that the deal they wanted represented value for money.

there were rumours in the week of a loan deal for joe hart, but i can't realistically see man city agreeiing to that. a deal for given always struck me as the most likely.

todays sun talks about a 23/25 million bid for pepe reina which surfaced earlier in pre season when benitez was there and apparently turned down 10m

i'd sooner a new keeper came in and both mannone and chesney went out.

Hardly any loss was made on Reyes (signed for around £10m which would've rose to £17m with appearances, sold for around the same price)
Wright only cost £2m (would've rose to £6m with appearances)

Jeffers, Kos & Squillachi (Fair Enough)

Henry £10m (Sold for £16m)
Vieira £3.5m (Sold for £14m)
Overmars £5m (Sold for £25m)
Toure £150,000 (Sold for £16m)
Anelka £500,000 (Sold for £23m)
Adebayor £7m (Sold For £25m)

Why did you even bother? There have been at least 4 Arsenal fans who were reading that post as I was reading it. We all said nothing, because it doesn't deserve a reply. Treat him like a child if he's behaving like one. Ignore his taunts and he'll eventually find something else to do.

He won't though, he has no life.

Literally every time i see Arsenal mentioned in a thread he's there regardless of whether people ignore him or not filling the thread with co2.

You're right though about not responding, i won't from now on it's bait he's attention seeking.
