Pisstake or prank? Cesc 's Barca blunder

One minute he is dedicating his World Cup triumph to Arsenal, the next he has the audacity to don a Barcelona shirt…is it me, or is Cesc Fabregas taking the piss?Don’t get me wrong, I know this was a prank by Barca’s Carlos Puyol and Gerard Pique with Liverpool imbecile Pepe Reina helping procedings along, but surely to God (Dennis) Cesc should have given them a look as if to say, ‘Leave it out, you know how delicate this is for me’. Or even retrained them putting the top on.
Yet, given previously making all sorts of nice comments about the glorious Gunners, the little Spaniard is smiling and joining in the fun as if it is a prelude to a done deal that he will move to Barca.
Again, I understand he may be caught up in the wonderful aftermath of lifting the most prestigious trophy the Beautiful Game has to offer, but isn’t it an affront to us a club that he let this happen? Or is it merely a bit of hilarity occuring in the euphoria that the Spanish nation is enveloped in right now?
Let’s not forget what Cesc had to say after threading the ball through to Andres Iniesta to give Spain a 1-0 win over Holland in South Africa on Sunday to win the World Cup for his nation for the first time.
“All I can say is that this World Cup victory is for all the Arsenal players and fans, they are a world-class club,” declared Fabregas. “I am an Arsenal player and proud to be.”
And one of the first to congratulate Fabregas was AW, who sent a text after the final whistle. “I had a text from Arsene Wenger. He said ‘Congratulations, you deserve it’,” Fabregas revealed. “I replied ‘Thank you very much’ and told him this is for the whole of Arsenal Football Club, who have helped me get where I am today.”
Just 24 hours later, being pictured in a Barca shirt is hardly the way to follow up that message of thanks, is it? I have been led to believe that Cesc would stay a season before being allowed to go to the Nou Camp with our blessing… for the dignity of the Arsenal, isn’t it time to change tact and take the money? Adios, Cesc.
