Balague backs down on Cesc story
June 10, 2010
The man behind the media drive (couldn’t resist) to get our Captain shipped over to Catalonia, has finally retreated this afternoon.
He has actually had a mini breakdown RE:Twitter and the abuse he has taken off Gooners since his Cesc to Barca quotes last month.
“Courtesy of Twitter, I`ve been getting more abuse from the Twitter twats and toddlers because I`ve been reporting on Barcelona’s strategy for recruiting Cesc Fabregas.
Apparently, because I`m Spanish, I`m doing my bit for the Catalan club of which I must surely be a fan: because I`m from Barcelona. You couldn`t be more wrong. Is every Londoner and Arsenal fan?”
His rant did not finish there…..
But when I report that candidates for the Barcelona presidency have a strategy for signing Cesc Fabregas, apparently I`m single handedly masterminding the downfall of Arsene Wenger.
I shall Tweet no more, other than to link to an article in full. The internet has become a mine of mis-information and unless you read it here, or in an article with my name on the by-line, then the next time you read in a forum or a blog that ‘Balague says….’ – you can take it with a pinch of salt.
All the best, Guillem… bet we don’t see you at the Emirates next season.
