Desperate time - 32 year old Fabregas anybody?

We have an interim manager.
Why not an interim world-class midfielder as a short-term fix to strengthen the MIDDLE with a box-to-box midfielder who can thread a pass accurately?

Youngsters like Willock, Smith-Rowe, Burton, Saka, Nelson and Martinelli, and even Pepe, will certainly pick up lots of tips under his mentorship.

Bring him home as an interim solution for this season when we sold Xhaka and Torreira in January.

No.

The time to resign Cesc was when Wenger snubbed him and he went to Chelsea and finally won the league.

We need to move forward not backwards.

No, far too late. We've already got midfielders who run as fast as celine dion

My first reaction was 'no', but then thought that he could spot a pass to Aubu or Laca and set up a few goals. He probably wouldn't want to come anyway

Nobody.

The solution is fix the formation either play 4-3-3 or 3-4-3. Bring in the young players in starting lineup. Sign up a CB or 2 CBs immediately and a strong holding MF and build the team. Let go the dead woods Ozil, Xhaka, Kolasinac etc etc....

Let's be real, a 32-year-old Fabregas is better than a 31-year-old Ozil.

I don't think he'd come back though. I think he loved Wenger and then by default he loved Arsenal, in the same way your non-blood related uncle loves you because your auntie does, but I'm not sure he'd feel the same about Arsenal without Wenger being there.

Both are dead rubber, shano.

We don't need his love as player, may be in future ever he becomes useful again as coach or Football Director etc etc then we might need to reconsider him. Arsenal is in serious sh.it now more pressing thing is to start fixing them rather than being nostalgic about Fabregas's love for Wenger.

Show's how bad we are having a thread about Cesc.
