There he is.

So it's achievement this year cos Nasri n Fabregas left last year!! It was achievement cos William Gallas, Eduardo and who knows who else left last year!! It was an achievement cos Mathieu Flamini and Hleb left the season before, it was an achievement cos Henry left a season before that season before!! Well it's always an achievement!
Gallas wasn't that great, and Eduardo was a shadow. Flamini and Hleb have gone on to show how great they are with their subsequent careers. Birgmingham City and the Milan bench are ever thankful, I'm sure.

Nasri and Fabregas were the absolute heart of our team. Nasri got a bit more hype than he deserves, but is still immensely talented. Fabregas goes without saying. As important as RVP, maybe more.

So yes, them leaving right before the season started hurt a bit. Take Yaya and Silva, Nani and Young, Lampard and Mata, hell even Tiote and Cabaye out of a given team and tell me how well they do.

As far as the above statement is concerned I'm a football fan probably before even you were born and by football fan I mean real match going football fan of real football club who has produced footballers from scratch the world could never forget and we were never bothered about cult worshiping be it football players or managers. Probably, you need to think better reasons than that to advice me of supporting few more teams as glory hunters of a money bag league.
You can be a crusty old bas.tard and still be wrong. I don't really care how old you are.
