Seeing Cesc Fabregas last night (Wednesday) coming on for Barcelona made me cringe! It was so weird seeing him in a Barcelona shirt but I guess this day was going to come sooner or later. What hurt even more was how Fabregas seemed to just come into the side and play for 10 minutes as if he had been at that club for years. I guess that just goes to show the quality of players around him at Barcelona and the quality he himself possesses.
Cesc went 6 years without a trophy at Arsenal and after 10 minutes playing for Barcelona, he has already won the Spanish Super Cup!
In the past, players who have left Arsenal for ‘greener-pastures’ such as Adebayor, Henry, Flamini and Hleb have failed dismally at their new clubs. I would hope Cesc goes on to fail at Barcelona after he left us hanging but it does not look like it. A midfield of Xavi, Iniesta and Fabregas is a scary prospect for any opposition. What I would give to have Barcelona in the Champions League again this season!
