Vlog on the Pitch: Cesc Fabregas special

September 26, 2008

When Aleksandr Hleb and Mathieu Flamini left Arsenal in the close season with no obvious replacements you might have been tempted to question Arsene Wenger’s transfer policy.

Well, Cesc Fabregas was not among the doubters, as he told Reuters this week. Cesc says he always had faith in the man who brought him in from Barcelona as an unknown teenager (as well he might).

Owen Wyatt “caught up with” the Spain midfielder at a trendy London nightspot and clearly picked up some fashion tips while he was there.

Check out the video above, and give us your thought on Wenger and his 2008-09 vintage Arsenal in the comments below, or in a vlog of your own, which we’ll be happy to host here (if it’s any good).

Wenger has built yet another Arsenal generation.
The guy is simply a legend, as is Fabregas for that matter.
Premiership, here we come!

Wenger is the man. I don’t think they will win anything at all this season but they play the best football out there and Fabregas is a big part of that.

You can’t win anything with kids.
Except the reserves league in Arsenal’s case…

Wenger is clearly one of the top five managers in the world. The teams he’s built at Arsenal have played the most attractive football to ever grace the premiership. At the beginning of last season they were untouchable, and they are kicking into that gear now, but will they win trophies? Well, it all depends on whether the young team can sustain their quality for the entirety of the season and not fade away like they did last year.

I am the author of ArseNews and its pleasing to see a proper journalist, especially someone writing for the likes of Reuters, link to my blog.

Mate, if you like it, it’d be great if you could stick a link in the sidebar. I will do likewise.

 

What is going on with his hair?

He could be totally covered in hair, or have no hair at all – it’s what he does with his feet that matter.
Unless he wants to mould his hair into some fashion that will dramatically increase his chances of scoring from headers.
