Metro certainly have both Chelsea and Arsenal fans looking up here in the Football Transfer Tavern after they contain some rather sensational quotes from new Blues darling Cesc Fabregas.
The Spaniard made the move to Stamford Bridge from Barcelona this summer but only after his former club had turned him down.
Of course that caused widespread anger and indeed the obligatory social media meltdown amongst Arsenal fans.
Gooners felt that they had been betrayed by their former skipper, who of course claimed on Twitter – ‘once a Gunners, always a Gunner’ – until you score for Chelsea and pat the badge obviously!
Cesc however does not seem to agree with the abuse coming his way and claimed: “Changing clubs is part of the game and people must remember it was Arsenal who didn’t take up the buy-back option for me.
“They told me now [Mesut] Ozil was there, there was no need for me.
“That’s life. No problem. We move on. Life moves on. Football moves on.”
Arsenal fans. Who do you blame for this? Is it Wenger’s fault for failing to re-sign Cesc or should the player himself have turned Chelsea down no matter what? Let us know your thoughts below.
