Cesc talks on the rest of the season, will he stay?

“With Arsenal 17 points behind leaders Manchester United in the Premier League with 12 games left, Cesc Fabregas’s assertion that it is “not realistic” for the Gunners to win the title was a statement of the bleeding obvious. But the Spanish midfielder, who is hoping to return in April from a long-term knee injury, insisted a Champions League place is attainable. Arsenal, in fifth, are six points off that pace.

At the moment we would not be intelligent to be looking right to the top of the league,” he said. “Now we have to make sure we put a run of wins together and don’t lose more points.

“Chelsea and Aston Villa [in third and fourth] will drop points, of that I am sure, and that is why we need to be ready to capitalise at the right time. We need to be sure that we take the chances we will get because it is really important for next season.”

Arsenal have played in Europe’s top club competition every year for more than a decade, which has played a part in a success story that has extended well beyond the pitch. The latest positive chapter came yesterday with news that Arsenal’s pre-tax profits for the six months to the end of November 2008 had risen £4.5m to £24.5m.

Well i came accross this article and it seemed positive to hear what the Spanishmen had to say about the rest of the progress in this season, but it made me think, him being so concerned does it seem he has a future at Arsenal. People are constantly worrying about weather or not our world class midfielder will make a departure this summer.

It was joyful indeed to hear that his willing to fight and maintain the Champions league spot for next season, hoping that he will still be apart of it next year.

Does this mean he will stay? Lets just hope he sticks to his guns, we will get there in the end and bring home silverware.

    Of course he’ll stay, but we shouldn’t take Cesc’s loyalty for granted. He deserves to be winning things and he wont accept this forever.

    I have the feeling that he’s the type of guy that would consider ending his career here so long as we were doing him justice – or maybe leave us in his late twentys for his dream move to Real or Barca. I’d settle for that.

    The point I was making is, what do you expect when so many of our first team players out of action? A team made up of Vela, Diaby, Bentner, Denilson, and an unfit yet gifted Arshavin isn’t going to break down a team with a good defence record like Fulham. The West Londoners have hardly conceded any goals when playing away. RVP is single-handedly shouldering the attack, but its too much to ask of just one player.

    Same happened this time last year with Adebayor. He was having an amazing season, couldn’t stop scoring, then a few key players, who he relies on, get injured (Eduardo and RVP), the goals dried up, and surprise surprise, we dropped points. These things happen!

    Any other team that has those kind of set-backs would go through the same thing, its just we’ve been the ones who’ve had the most severe injuries to key players in the last year or so. United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Villa wouldn’t be up there if they had our injuries, and in fact, one could argue that they should have more points at this stage of the season than they currently do, which goes to show that they too haven’t played to their best ability either.

    Its natural to feel disappointed, but that doesn’t change the result. All there is is the next game. Peple always criticise Arsenal for not having a never-say-die mentality, yet with a 3rd of the season still yet to be played people are writing them off already, and that isn’t right.
