Cesc: Learning to love/tolerate him

Cesc Fabregas is a Chelsea player. Has anyone here let that sunk in yet? Watch the video in the tweet below and tell me that doesn't seem weird to you:

He looks happy enough, and I admit the color of his shirt does alleviate the inevitable cringing of watching his "Barca DNA"-smirk.

Strange times we're living in. Mata a Manc. Lamps a Yank. I mean Benitez was our manager for christ's sake. Scum of the earth, those scousers. So I suppose Fabregas' signing shouldn't really come as a surprise. At least not in the sense of breaking seemingly holy club allegiances. I do feel for Arsenal fans though - tradition now, isn't it.. Vieira, Cole, Nasri, van Persie, Sagna and the list will go on.

Having been Chelsea for nearly 20 years now, the way I see it Cesc has some serious winning over to do to altogether eradicate that inevitable cringe. I'm certain most of my fellow WAGNHers feel the same. So what I've come up with is this therapeutic thread. The point being to discuss and share the good things about our new #4. And perhaps, just perhaps, we'll be rooting for him before he's even set up his first Chelsea goal with a scrumptious pass that might go something like this:

That's crazy good. He's got three players marking him, yet still manages to dink the ball into the penalty area onto the chest of a teammate. Watch the rest of it if you like. It's rather impressive. The word 'pinpoint' comes to mind. As does 'defence-splitting'.

Back in 2011, Guardian journo David Lacey wrote:

Selling Fábregas is the footballing equivalent of having a frontal lobotomy. Players of this cerebral quality are about as easy to replace as brains.

Also, he doesn't seem to mind looking an ass so long as it helps the team:
