Cesc Fabregas' Car Crash A Perfect Metaphor For Arsenal's Recent Woes - The Short Fuse

Ted Harwood at SB Nation's Arsenal blog The Short Fuse isn't exactly thrilled by the news that Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas managed to get himself in a car accident on Monday morning (he was unhurt). It's not because of the crash,  - these things do happen - but Ted does appear to be drawing parallels between the incident and the rest of the season, and like all Arsenal fans is salving his hurt with a healthy dose of sarcasm.

No reports have come in about any jokes about how long the car is expected to be out for, whether or not Fabregas was driving on the correct side of the road, if the car will need submarine placenta rubbed on its dents, or how this incident will affect Fabregas' captaincy and "leadership skills". It's actually kind of a small wonder that nobody in the English media has called Fabregas to task for leading too much by example on the motorway and not being a vocal, in-your-face-type leader that is required to avoid just such "prangs".

It's difficult to blame Arsenal fans for being snarky in the circumstances - a car crash, however minor, involving their midfield star is more or less the cherry on top of a now-miserable season, and I suspect everyone would be at least slightly cranky in Ted's situation.

Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas Unhurt After 'Minor' Car Accident

In keeping with a miserable few months for Arsenal, captain Cesc Fabregas has been involved in a minor car accident near Arsenal's training ground in Hertfordshire - but fortunately emerged unscathed. According to a police spokesman, the two-car collision happened on Monday morning at around 10:00 AM, but there were no severe injuries or major damage to either vehicle.

A few short months ago Arsenal were competing on four fronts and looked in good shape to give Manchester United a major problem through the final few weeks of the 2010/11 Premier League campaign. Since then, it hasn't gone so well. A 2-1 home victory over Barcelona was overshadowed first by a Carling Cup final defeat to Birmingham and then a 3-1 loss at the Camp Nou which knocked them out of the Champions League. Then came an FA Cup quarter final defeat to United at Old Trafford, which was followed up by poor league form. And the injuries... well, it's safe to say that the medical staff at the Emirates Stadium probably won't be considered under-worked anytime soon. Adding a car crash to that list seems just about right.
