Getting it Right

Unlike Arsenal, we are back to full strength! Join Jen, Deb, Sarah, Zara, and Subha as they discuss the Bolton match.

Alternate title: How Arsenal and Song got it right, and Walcott got it wrong.

One of our big topics (so big, it necessitated a Le Petit Back Heel episode) was Robin van Persie. Listen to the minisode below, take a look at Zara’s post, “The Century Man” and read all about our captain.

This week we had so much to say about Robin van Persie that we added a very short Le Petit Back Heel to this week’s media. It’s also available on iTunes (you don’t need to subscribe to another channel) and you can listen below:


The truth is that I came here to present this fragrance, not talk about either team. At the moment, there’s nothing to be said or discussed.

And after 8 years, after all my hard work, after everything I’ve felt, after all I’ve experienced with the club, with the fans, with my teammates; I can’t just throw it all away now with a word.

After saying it both actively and passively, Cesc Fabregas has taken a couple of days vacation, the current Arsenal player is one of the most sought after ‘pearls’ by La Liga, but while his future is being decided he takes advantage of the break with his family on the beaches of Ibiza. There have been a lot of Premier League games and lots of attention as to whether he’ll be wearing blaugrana, white, and if he will finally return to the best league in the world to show off his talent. The Arenis de Mar native, in spite of everything, also takes time to be with his loved ones,  forget about his boots, and feel the beach sand. What does Cesc’s future hold? Only time can tell, for the moment, he enjoys the coast with his family. A true star on and off the pitch who looks to have his future bound to one of the teams in La Liga.

So that’s his latest official statement, and it once again is vague, as it should be. While it’s true that he hasn’t committed himself to Arsenal, it’s important to see that even though he plans to leave us eventually, we mean a lot to him. I’ve seen a lot of fans criticizing him for ‘forgetting’ everything Arsenal FC have done for him, but this video is proof that he can’t. And after the Samir Nasri quotes we’ve just received from NOTW (please visit @timpayton for the quotes if you don’t want to purchase the rag), it’s refreshing and I appreciate seeing Cesc not betraying it to the media.

Cesc remains one of our most well-spoken diplomatic players, regardless of his intentions to stay or go. That’s something I truly respect and admire about him. Oh, how I wish ALL of our players were well-versed in the do’s and don’ts of footy PR.

So this video has caused a minor uproar on Twitter as Cesc’s quotes have circulated via The Guardian. Unfortunately, the translations are correct. However, the media are (omg what a surprise) capitalizing on these quotes.

This is what I can catch, some of it is in Catalán and I don’t understand it, so unlike the Don Balón translation, this will be slightly incomplete.

Reporter: You can’t resolve anything now, can you?

CF: Nonono–

R: but you can relax about it now?

CF: Exactly, at the moment I don’t have anything to say and there’s nothing to discuss.

R: you’re just getting in good physical condition to be ready for the start of the season, right?

CF: Of course, I’m already doing my part, and doing what I can–

R: [two reporters talk at once] Are you relaxed/content at your club? [the other asks if he is an optimist]

CF: yes, yes, I’m very relaxed

R: [in Catalán] What about the market?

CF: What market?

R: the transfer market [not sure about this next part] Are you in it?

CF: Me? No, if something happens it’s because it has to; I believe that when a player is in the market, it’s because his club doesn’t want him, but I don’t have that problem so I’m calm.

R: Are you an optimist?

CF: Yes, I’m optimistic about everything, I don’t know what you’re referring to.
