Fabregas Is Rooting For Arsenal

Cesc Fabregas (Spanish Footballer) is really wishing that this football season Arsenal is able to win the Premier League title as it will be awesome to witness Arsenal win after a 9 year long wait. He wants Arsenal to compete and defeat Manchester City and Chelsea and secure the Premier League title.

Fabregas recently admitted that he watches Premier League and especially those matches of the league in which Arsenal is playing. He is absolutely excited to witness how the league results turn out to be this season.


Cesc Fabregas has denied the reports of him not happy after being called back into the dugout by the Barcelona manager towards the end of the game against Levante.

Fabregas had started that match and was looking in fine touch. It seemed he would play the entire game, but, surprisingly, Gerardo Martino who is in charge at Barcelona at the moment decided to take him off with about 17 minutes remaining.


After playing with Arsenal 8 years, the Spanish midfielder made his move to Barcelona on August of 2011 in what was one of the longest transfer sagas in modern times. Even though the transfer was completed some time ago, Jack Wilshere wrote on Arsenal’s website that the departure of Fabregas made him more upset than anything else.

"The one I was really upset about leaving was Fabregas, I learned so much from just watching him," he told Arsenal's official club website. "He's similar to me starting at a young age. He later went on talking about the latest addition of Arsenal, Mesut Ozil.


Radamel Falcao has hinted that he doesn’t want to make a move away to Spain as he doesn’t have any problem at his current club Monaco.

In one of his interviews a few days ago, Florentino Perez who is the president of the Spanish club Real Madrid had praised Falcao and had said that his club might try to buy the Monaco player next summer.

Since then, there were speculations that this might be Falcao’s last season in France, but, the 27 years old Colombian striker has denied those speculations.


Cesc Fabregas has said that Celtic still has chance of making it to the final 16 in the Champions League.

Barcelona defeated Celtic by 1-0 a couple of days back to secure their second consecutive win in the Champions League this season and the man who was the hero for La Blaugrana in that game was Fabregas. He scored the only goal of the match in the 75th minute and made sure that Barcelona would remain at the top of the Group H points table.

Cesc Fabregas to snub Manchester United

Manchester United manager David Moyes is set to be snubbed again after Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova revealed that his midfield Cesc Fabregas has told him that he wants to stay at the club and fight for trophies and not look for greener pastures. The Old Trafford confirmed last night that they have lodged a £ 26 million bid for the former Arsenal skipper as they look to find a replacement for the retired Paul Scholes in midfield.

New sponsorship deal

When it comes to the rumour surrounding the clubs in the English Premiership they generally centre on possible arrivals and departures of players and managers, but another thing that changes fairly frequently is the shirt sponsorships for the major teams.

This is because this sponsorship accounts for a significant proportion of their revenue, and the top clubs are always looking for a more lucrative deal in the hope of gaining a financial edge. Now rumours suggest that a Premiership club may be about to announce just such a deal, with the gambling site Lucky Nugget.


The Champions League quarter final match played between Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain at Parc des Princes on Tuesday has ended in a draw. Both the teams scored a couple of goals each.
This was the first leg. These two teams will again face each other in the return leg which is scheduled to take place at Camp Nou on 10th of April.

Barca was ahead in the match for a long time. They got the lead with Lionel Messi’s goal in the 38th minute and they maintained that lead for 40 odd minutes.

In the last few minutes of the match, some dramatic things happened. In the 79th minute, Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the equalizer for PSG with a fine header. That goal gave the home supporters a big relief.

However, the happiness of PSG supporters didn’t last long. A penalty was awarded to Barca in the 89th minute and Xavi was asked to take the shot. He blasted the ball into the right hand corner of the net and gave Barca the lead again.

The last twist in the game still had to come. In the 4th minute of the stoppage time, the score became 2-2. The scorer was Blaise Matuidi, but, the hard work was done by Ibrahimovic. After a brilliant run, he passed the ball to Matuidi who finished it with a powerful shot.

The whole stadium erupted after that goal. There were wonderful scenes out there. The home supporters as well as the PSG players were jumping in joy, while, there was clear disappointment on the faces of Barca players. They would have been thinking that they had this one in the bag.
This was a great game of football. Both the teams played some high quality football and the spectators got their money’s worth.

Barcelona’s next match will be a La Liga encounter against Mallorca at Camp Nou on 6th of April.


Cesc Fabregas has said that his team performed quite decently in the Copa Del Rey match against Real Madrid which ended in a draw. That match was played at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday. Both the teams scored one goal each in the match.

For Barcelona, Fabregas was the one who found the back of the net in the 50th minute of the match by capitalizing on Lionel Messi’s pass. The scores got levelled in the 81st minute when Raphael Varane scored for Madrid.

Talking to the reporters after the match, Fabregas said, “It was a good performance by us. We were taking on Madrid at Bernabeu which is not an easy task. We stopped them on draw and I think it’s not such a bad result for us. We will play the return leg on our home ground and hopefully, we will perform better than this in that match.”

Barcelona had a few opportunities in the first half. In the 13th minute, Jordi Alba got a wonderful pass from Andres Iniesta, but, the Spanish midfielder couldn’t give the finishing touch. His shot went wide of the net.

In the 21st minute, Barcelona had another opportunity when they got a free kick, but, again, they wasted the chance. Xavi Hernandez’s shot bounced back after hitting the crossbar.

When asked about the lost opportunities in the first half, Fabregas said, “It was a huge pressure game and the players were a bit nervous at the start. So, you can expect a few mistakes here and there. But, you can’t question our commitment. The commitment was there. We tried hard and overall, we did quite well.”

Barcelona will again face Real Madrid in the return leg of the Copa Del Rey at Camp Nou on 27th of February.
