Cesc Fabregas: Gone Baby Gone

People? The time for flirting, bickering, stony silences and pouting is now over. No, Ronnie and Sammi from Jersey Shore haven’t broken up (despite our prayers) but Cesc Fabregas and Arsenal FC have finally negotiated who gets the Coldplay CDs and Krispy Kreme gold card and wished each other farewell.
We must face facts: Cescy was unveiled as a Barcelona player yesterday afternoon after signing a deal worth about £35m to the London club.
It’s the news no Arsenal fan wanted to hear, every Barcelona fan wanted to hear, and the rest of us have been hiding under the duvet to avoid for some months now. Now it’s over, Kickettes, let’s come together as one and plead for our Number One Finest Five boy to do the decent thing and get a haircut.
Then put all this unpleasantness behind us and concentrate on the far more important matter of involving you in our fantasies instead of doing any work.
You owe us that much for our devotion alone.
