Cesc can be replaced


Indifferent season leads one fan to question captain’s value to Arsenal

The other morning I woke up to unusually beautiful weather to start the day in good form, until I went online and started to read the latest Arsenal news. Our beloved captain had once again been voicing his love for the recently crowned European Champions. This led me to ask myself…. Is Cesc really that good? Would he actually start for the “greatest team in history?”

Fabregas is a fabulous footballer and will hopefully continue to improve, however he was made to look like a boy against Darren Fletcher and Lampard during our two semi finals this season. As I watched with eyes of bitter jealousy as Xavi Hernandes and Andreas Iniesta tore United apart last Wednesday, I thought, where was Cesc when we needed him this season?

Unlike some of the legends that have pulled on the famous red and white, Cesc has not delivered when he has been needed most! Look at the likes of Henry, Vieira, Pires, Overmars. In the past, when we needed them most, at the business end of the season, they stood up and delivered. Yes, these players did play in squads with a lot more experience and had more quality around them, but when they were needed most they did not go missing and hope that someone else would take control.
