Members Day 2010 Gallery — Cesc is back

Cesc Fabregas returned to training with Arsenal on Thursday – and lined up for a team photo at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners captain has been at the centre of speculation linking him with a return to Barcelona all summer.

Barca, the club with whom Fabregas began his career, made a £30million bid for the midfielder earlier this summer, only to be told by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger that the player was not for sale at any price.

Several public statements by Barca’s most prominent players advocating a move for the World Cup winner has only served to increase speculation that Fabregas will leave the club.

Despite that, the Spain star was all smiles as he lined up alongside Wenger and the rest of the Arsenal squad for the team photo at the Emirates Stadium.

An Arsenal spokesman said:

“Fabregas spoke with his coach [Wenger] today, also in private. He will talk to the fans at the end of this or next week.”

I heard Clichy and Vermaelen slipped an Arsenal shirt over Cesc in practice today! They are such jokers! Oh… wait…

I can’t understand why Lansbury wasn’t called up for the U-21 since he is practicing with the first team. He was in the last squad, has had a good pre-season and few of the last crop have been excluded for A-team duties and he is left out. Still, it will be great to see three Arsenal players in the England team when Capello announces it. Here is for Jackie, Theo and Gibbsy boy.

well, till cesc speaks [to the fans] this or next week, anything still could happen… it’s just unpredictable world of football especially with barca and arsenal in it!

so far so good… hopefilly, by the time cesc speaks publicly, we have made couple of new signing announcements!

since Stone mentioned U-21s, i’d also say that it’s awfully strange arsenal have no representation in it…

despite JW and KG being ‘dropped’ as reported in the media, surely, other arsenal reserves and even U-XXs have (or have we?) some talented english players… thought wenger and ivan have been bragging about them quite regularly in 09?

it must be really something for the other players when they see the world champions is training together with them. it sure bring lots of inspiration to the team. dear cesc, this club loves u more than anything else. not even barca would love u as much as the arsenal. would they still want u if u were just an average player? would they say u have the barca dna in u? i doubt it but here, no matter who u are, how good or bad u r, we will always love u. this is the club of class not… Read more »

The official website has been updated with the training pictures and Cesc is conspicuously absent in all of them. When Cesc’s participation was easily the biggest deal of the day, leaving him out of the 13 pictures is really queer to say the least. I wonder if something is going on behind the scenes.

@osman: Yes, I hope so. I’m surprised because I kept refreshing the webpage to see some headline to the effect of Cesc and RVP back in training. Makes sense to have those two in the spotlight instead of Mannone, Lansbury et al. But what you say makes sense. Maybe they will have a special report on Cesc and RVP.

Glad to see Cesc Gooner back in a shirt that isnt covered in Puyol’s slime. The story doing the rounds is Cesc will be short for the Liverpool game. Odd then to see that he been named in Spains squad for the friendly next Wednesday. One last throw of the dice by the despicable barca tap up meerchants? Wenger is too honourable a man to withdraw him from the squad in the way Lord Alex of Rednose does, so I hope Wenger sends Cesc to Spain with explicit instructions. Wear your i-pod at all times and you WILL be playing… Read more »
