how do you know the condition on Fabregas? maybe he couldn't manage it. Maybe our injury prone players couldn't manage two games in 48 hours?

the team put out should have beaten wigan. Thats where the problem lies.

Im not just talking about Fabregas he made 8 changes to the side and he should have learnt from past mistakes but he never does.

I never said we have, difference is we can buy players in January if needed and have Zhirkov and Benayoun due back sometime in the newyear.

Maybe the team isn't good enough to win the league this year, but if they could this team together the next few years they are a serious candidate.

Wolves went into their game knowing they didn't have a chance so rested players. Arsenal rested players however the side put out was by far good enough to beat a team like Wigan. (No disrespect intended).

And I think dropping two points to a weak Wigan side is punishment enough.

True, but look at Barcelona.
A few years a go it was a disaster, they started to work with they own youth and when you have patience the results will come.
You don't buy a team, like Chelsea, You built a team.

your argument is the squad isnt strong enough to be tinkered with, when the reality is, only city have better strength in depth in the league.

You say their squad isn't good enough, and you just admitted their depth is better than Chelsea's, so if their squad isn't good enough, you just said Chelsea aren't good enough to win the league, an admission like that is unlikely so people infer you meant Chelsea's depth is better.

Remember your post in a thread, where you said about your squad player by player and went on about Josh? And also looking back at that thread, i loled at your comments about Berbatov.
