Here’s that supposedly revealing footage. It doesn’t require the services of Lt Columbo to see the thing was jammed on over his head complete with his arms trapped inside.
He looks uncomfortable. Hardly a statement of intent.
Fabregas said, ‘I am an Arsenal player and proud to be.’ What would have been useful was if he was able to bring himself to add, ‘And I have turned down Barcelona.’ Talk about leaving the notoriously thin skinned Arsenal faithful in the lurch.
I wonder, does he look ill at ease because he wanted his first time in the shirt (outside of his bedroom) to be, ‘special’?
