BBC - Fabregas is going nowhere!

There is a lot of fuss at the moment in the Blogosphere and Journoland because the BBC published a story quoting an unnamed 'senior Arsenal official' (their words) saying that if Arsenal received a suitable offer for Cesc Fabregas then they would have to sell.

Setting aside for a moment whether the license fee funded BBC should be getting involved in speculation like this that is unarguably designed to unsettle Fabregas and destabilise Arsenal, I have one thing to say to the BBC:

Tell us something we don't know. Every player has his price and Fabregas is no different, the problem is that Barcelona are not willing to meet the asking price for Fab4 and that therefore he is going nowhere!

There, I'm glad I got that off my chest. Now onto the other issue that the article raises. Namely, should the BBC get involved in stories design to unsettle players or destabilise clubs?

Personally, I have to say that I'm not too happy about it, either in this case or generally whatever the club involved. (Well, okay then, maybe if it's Spurs!) On the other hand, fans of ManUre, Chelski, Man Citeh and Spuds probably think it is worth paying the license fee in this case just for that purpose.

If anyone is in any doubt about the purpose of this article then the following quote from it should persuade you:
"Did you know...? Cesc Fabregas is a life-long Barca fan who watched his first game as a nine-month old baby."
Which of course means that Arsenal should sell him back to them for nothing, right? Uuurrrgghhh!

Calm, calm, calm. I must stay calm. Deep breaths. Deep breaths.
