Anyone Else Want To Bitch-Slap Carlos Puyol?

By on July 30, 2010

First off, I apologize for the lack of pictures today but I refuse to grace my blog with pictures of scum. On to the business… I had hoped to get the whole Cesc story out of me the other day, but a new slew of utterly inane comments from Cesc’s self-appointed spokesman, Carlos Puyol, have got me uncharacteristically wound up all over again. Here they are:

After seven years of great service, I thought Arsenal could have granted him his dream move. He is having to stay at a club where he no longer wants to be. Cesc has given everything to Arsenal to try to win a trophy but they haven’t matched his expectations. I won’t say he is in a prison, as we know how privileged we are as football players. But after how clear Cesc made it that he wanted to be in Barcelona, I thought they would have granted him that.

Where to begin? Apparently, Puyol thinks Arsenal should repay Fabregas for simply playing for us by allowing him to move. As if merely being graced by his presence was a gift to the club. When Barcelona didn’t think Cesc would be a top-class player seven years ago, they put up no fight to keep him when Arsenal made him an offer. Only afterwards, when they have realized their mistake, do they want him back. Is it me or is it a bit like the father who leaves his young family only to show up on his son’s doorstep after he’s become a movie star millionaire?

“After how clear Cesc made it that he wanted to be in Barcelona?” Puyol must be reading his own quotes because I haven’t seen one quote from Cesc saying that. The only ones making it “clear” are Puyol and his teammates during a media campaign that has become nothing short of embarrassing. If Barcelona were such a great club, why would they feel the need to resort to these kinds of tactics?

“Cesc has given everything to Arsenal.” True, but Arsenal has given Cesc even more than one player can give to a club. Arsene not only gave him a chance at 16 years of age in the first team, but he let him step in for the club’s captain and leader. He then went on to build the entire team around Cesc. And, let’s be honest, Cesc is just as much to blame as anyone else for our failed title bids in 2007/08 and 2009/10. His performances fell off just like the rest of the team.

If anything, Cesc owes Arsenal far more than Arsenal owes him. At the very least, Cesc owes it to the club to see that we get what we deserve in terms of financial compensation for the time, effort, faith, and confidence the club and supporters have shown him. All four things which Barcelona didn’t show him when they had the chance.

No football player is fully-formed at 16 years old. ARSENAL made Cesc into the player he is today and now they want him back for half of what he is worth. Barca let Cesc walk away. He was not poached or stolen. They could’ve told him that they would offer him a professional contract and a place in the first-team when he would turn 17. Had they guaranteed him that, he likely would not have left in the first place. But they didn’t have faith in him.

No matter what Puyol thinks, Barca have no unalterable right to Cesc Fabregas. If it came down to it, I’d rather offer him to Madrid for £40m than sell him to Barca for £60m. The problem is not that Arsenal don’t want to let him go, Carlos. The problem is you’re as skint as your average Scouser. It’s not that Arsenal don’t want to sell, it’s that Barcelona can’t afford to buy after having bought 7 trophies with loans. Why sell a player to a team who hasn’t even finished paying for previous transfers and is up to their ears in debt? That’s just dumb business.

Arsenal, quite rightly, are simply not going to sell their most prized asset for 1/2 of his value because cunts like Puyol and Iniesta keep talking to the press. If anything, Puyol should realize that he is only making matters much worse for Cesc and his club. The level of conceit, entitlement, and downright egotism emanating from that cuntbox of a stadium is astounding.

The headline of the piece in the Mail is “You’ll pay for keeping Cesc Fabregas!” No, Carlos, YOU and all the cunts at Barca will pay.” It’s easy. Either come up with £60m or fuck off.

      I think you’ve got it backwards. I think Puyol is doing what Barca is telling him to.

    I appreciate that Cesc wants to go, anyone one would given the opportunity to play for life long supported club., but Barca should/must pay the market rate.

    Also if Cesc is so desperate to go, why does he not hand in a transfer request, this relinquishing his right to his contract being paid in full if the club chooses to sell the player?

    Hello all,
    Yes we’ve all come to hate farcelona, but lets also think what cesc has been doing.last year he signed an extension.If he wanted to leave this summer, why should he have done that.He hasnt come out this whole summer in defence of arsenal.Only has talked abt how AW is like his father, how great that chat was with him etc.Why hsould he demand talks with AW if hes not interested in going?Again why hasnt he come out in public and said anything to stop in ***** for friends from talking shit in the media.Yes he wants to go, but he has to stay here for another year.So he better have a good excuse for all his antics….If the WC hasnt showed him anything( being on the bench), im
    sorry abt his mental state…..if he still wants to go, lets just open a bidding war.im sure real madrid, manshitty etc would love to have him.then he can leave. On our terms, not on his whims…..And we wont budge an inch….not even an inch for farcelona……i want the whole stadium to sing “stand up if u hate barca”……let it resonate also in cesc’s ears…..

    First time iv been on ur site but to read my exact feelings written by someone else makes me chill a bit because I feel like ranting at random people about it who don’t actually card haha! The main thing that you say that I totally agree with is that on what world do Barcelona players or even fabregas think by puyol coming put and chatting utter crap will help a transfer?? Of anything they are bogging cesc and barcelona a HUGE hole to climb out of!
