PICTURE: Cesc banner set to make debut on Wednesday


Written by Chris Wheatley

56 Comments  

A banner of Cesc Fabregas will be hung at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday when Arsenal play Barcelona in the Champions League.

Supporters group REDaction have planned it to hang off Club Level, with the wording ‘Spirit of 1970’, referring to Arsenal’s double winning team from 1971.

Let’s hope the skipper is passed fit for Wednesday’s game!

A truly appalling effort. Frank’s image is almost unrecognizable. What is the Spirit of 1970? Is it the spirit of 1971? At worse 1970/71? In 1970, we were thinking – good lord, we haven’t won any domestic trophies since most of us were born.

Good grief, was it designed by Stevie Wonder?

Eh… hope it didn’t cost you too much to make the banner – Arsenal won the double in 71… they finished 12th in 70

may as well invoke the spirit of anfield 88 while yer at it…

I’m confused, who cares about 1970 it’s all about the future of arsenal starting wed, I voted on redaction website for summit completly different! This will mean nothing to cesc!

Nice banner but it would be better if the whole stadium just sang “We’ve got Cesc Fabregas” for 90 mins and really p… off the Barca fans – Oh well,one can only dream.

That banner sucks.

What does Cesc have to do with 1970 or it’s spirit? Looks rubbish.

What is the point he is leaving in the summer, should have made a banner for david rocastle instead.

it would have been- cesc is our captain-or just-cesc is ours. This one spirit of 1970 is nothing.

WTF is this banner?

What does 1970 have to do with Cesc?

Surely 94 is more relevant that the tin pot piece of crap we won in 70?

Will cesc even know what happened in 1970?

Very disapointed.

I Love it great banner!

Please block/bar/ban all those gloomy buggers who say he won’t be here next year. Call yourself supporters? You don’t know the meaning of the word.

How sad to read how little history means to some gooners…our club is what it is because of its history…Highbury was the stadium it was because of what happened there…the original Double Team would not have let victory slip at Birmingham…why do some people think football only started when they began watching…sad,sad,sad….

just because you are young doesn’t mean things didn’t happen, 1970 was the start of big things and a top side at Arsenal this was when the ” great” Leeds side were about but we did The double , that night at highbury was the best night there EVER sorry for those that missed it, do you not think Cesc as captain hasn’t read all about the great Arsenal side even the thirties side football teams are about history as well as the future , we are about to start a very big time in the Arsenal history. Enjoy it

Remember when Arsenal were at Villareal, and a fan came on the pitch, gave henry a Barca shirt? I wouldnt be suprised if somethng same along the lines appens to Fabregas, at the camp nou.

Football teams are history ask a Chelsea fan 1970 was the start of arsenal being a top side again after 17 years we won the double the next year when Leeds were the “Great” side of the day Do you not think Cesc as captain does not know of the great Arsenal sides of the past even the thirties side. We are about to see another great era at Arsenal Enjoy it

Hmm, the spirit of 1970. I remember it like it was yesterday despite not being around until 13 years after this date. Seriously man get with the times. Boring old fashioned crap!

Forgive me for being wrong but didn’t we win the Double in 1971 not 70?!
It was 70 when we started but trophies were won in May 1971!

The Fairs Cup came in 1972 – same year we last managed to overturn an away leg defeat at home before Porto this season.

We didn’t do much else in the 70s until 1978 (Lost to Ipswich FA Cup Final) and waited until 1979 to lift the FA Cup.

Should be 71 shouldn’t it – thats when we actually won the title/double.

I think they could have been more creative.

Kind a dissapointed with the banner. I really hoped that the text would have been “Home is here” or “our captain – our leader – our heartbeat”. This means nothing to Cesc.

i said this comment in gunninghawk –> –> arsenal seem to do better without fabregas in champions league. Last year, they reached the semis, and fab4 played in semis and we lost to ManUre. Fabregas was absent in our biggest champions league thrashing as well -.-
