Fabregas: Spending To Win Not Our Style

Fabregas: Spending To Win Not Our Style



Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas has followed swiftly in the footsteps of his manager today in talking Manchester City...

'Everyone chooses their own politics and everyone decides how to win. They have a lot of money. They are taking advantage of it, and that's it. It is not our style, but we respect everyone's decision.'

Vote of er, approval given, the brilliantly talented 23 year old then links second placed City's recruitment policy which saw 6 players arrive and 20 depart this summer to team spirit:

'You cannot buy the spirit in one year. You need a few years to get everyone together and to get to know each other well, and it's not easy. You don't make a team in one season or two.'

To date, Roberto Mancini has had to rely upon the nucleus of last season's squad due to an inability to field all 6 of his new signings through injury. Fabregas concedes that for City it is a case of so far so good:

'...of course, they are in a very good position. They have all the ingredients to become a great club and we have to fight hard against them.'

I like Fabregas as a player and would love to see him at City but I feel some contradictions in his comments. He seems disillusioned at Arsenal's lack of trophies and the reason they haven't won trophies so far is that they haven't invested in a set of good, experienced players to lead their undoubtedly great set of youth. This has Fabregas wanting back to Barcelona at this stage of his career, as they are a winning club (who have also spent big on certain players while cultivating their own youth products).

For starters, i watched his interview and he didn't say 'manchester city' once. I can see what his point is though, i have always respected wenger for bringing players through the ranks and making them superstars and i think that arsenal are two players away from being great but without spending that 40m which is all they need to really spend then they wont be champions any time soon. Spending 30 - 40m isnt a problem, it's when you spend 100m + when people begin talking cough* cough*. But saying this and wanting to leave arsenal does not make sense what so ever. And cb25yid erm pretty football doesnt win trophies yet barcelona are winning lots of them? Chelsea are? And inter milan who are playing nice football are giving your team a good hiding as we speak so that makes no sense either.

Got to laugh at a yid defending Citeh with a passion. Take a bow cb25yid. Btw its been 5 years since we last won a trophy of note. Compared to your 50 years since last winning the league thats a short time.
