Will Fabregas Find His Square Hole?

Both Cesc Fabregas and Barcelona must have regrets about his three-year spell at the Nou Camp; Barca never quite gave him the chance to play in midfield...

Fabregas was pants at Barca, (I know the stats were decent but I saw every single game he played and he really was poor in the majority) you can put that down to not playing in the right position, or limited oppertunities if you want, but I think it's more down to his attitude, I know everyone seems to think that he'll be an unqualified success at Chelsea but I'm unconvinced, He's undoubtedly a fine player but he's not quite as good everyone and more importantly he thinks he is.

Arsenal have a had a good transfer window thankfully because there would have been uproar should the like of Alexi not been signed and Fabregas rejected. In any case Fabregas should have been brought back. Wenger said last season when he signed Ozil that when a quality player comes along of that caliber you don't turn it down. Is this not the same thing. A player that loves the club and is pure quality wants to play or you. Wenger is probably thinking he has spent £42 million on a player last summer and he is going to build the team around him. Which is fine and Ozil is quality and I have agree with that but Fabregas is not a number 10 solely. He can play anywhere in midfield.Imagine Ramsey Fabregas and Ozil in midfield! Not signing him back was the same as selling one of your best players to a rival club which although we have done it the past unwittingly and are more reluctant to do these days. I noticed walking into the stadium yesterday that they have taken down his pictured flag on the Ken Friar Bridge where he was amongst greats such as Bob Pires and Liam Brady and the like. Such a shame. He could have had a statue beside Bergkamp and Henry. Now he will probably have a statue beside John Terry. Christ!!

It's the fault of even the greatest clubs that they don't recognise that overhwhelming superiority quickly turns to stagnation if you don't move on decisively. Xavi was clearly no longer the player he'd been, but Martino - for whatever reason - didn't act. (I'd say Liverpool and England have the same problem with Gerrard; and even though Man U sort of saw it coming with Keane, they never managed to solve the problem). But to be fair, even at Arsenal, Cesc's role was never entirely clear. The stats on assists speak for themselves, though - a man to build a team around, not one to fit into a sacred liturgy.

He'll be Chelsea's player of the season. He'll work alongside Matic and quite frankly it's going get quite arousing.
