It’s fair to say Arsenal fans are not happy.
We all knew it was coming, and on Thursday it finally happened – Cesc Fabregas signed for Chelsea. Usually signings like this are met positively, but this one left a particularly bitter taste in the mouth’s of Arsenal fans as they took to Twitter to express their distaste at the move.
FABREGAS: "Yes, everyone knows that Arsenal had the first option to sign me. They decided not to take this option…it wasn't meant to be."

Worse still, Fabregas basically confirms on Facebook he wanted to come back to Arsenal. Crazy decision to let Chelsea have him.

Chelsea wait until the first day of the World Cup to announce Cesc signing. They're just taking the piss out of Arsenal fans, aren't they?
