A combination of good old fashioned siege mentality and naivety on behalf of Arsenal has them seeking to be painted as the hard done by party in the Fabregas debacle.
The situation is not so clear cut and if a player wants to go he should be allowed, but equally he ought to publicly say what it is that he wants. Nothing is more infuriating in these situations than ardent supporters defending to the death a player who’s not condescended to say anything of any real value.
After having been led up this particular garden path by Henry already, you’d think everyone at the Emirates would be acting less hurt and aiming what bile they might have at the player himself.
So Arsene is threatening to hang a prohibitive price tag about the Spaniard’s neck.
“If Cesc can come to a market price, we will make every effort to come, but it must be a logical and market price;, when a club makes an exorbitant price, signal it wants to prevent transfer and in this sense, the club will not pay a price that is out of the market. ” Barcelona President, Joan Laporta
Good luck with that.
