'Once a gunner, always a gunner', says Cesc Fabregas

Just when you thought the Cesc Fabregas saga couldn't get get any more painful for Arsenal fans, the former Gunners captain po up on Twitter, right after months of silence on the issue of his transfer to Barcelona, to says that he'll always be a one of them. Methinks not, Cesc.

Fabregas, whose previous post – right in the middle of the transfer wrangle, as Arsenal captain – was 'Just got my new blackberry bold 9900. Its amazing!!!', has thanked Arsenal fans for their support and said that he'll be watching his friends in action tonight, as they take on Udinese. However, what he won't be doing is playing for them any more – that's got to hurt.

'To all Gunners: A big thank you for your unconditional support during the last 8 years,' he said. 'Just say that I will always carry you in my heart!

'Thank you all for your kind messages my friends and for helping me enjoy what I love most in this world that is playing football. And the most important, best of luck tonight, I'll be watching as usual. Once a gunner, always a gunner. Have a good day guys.'
