This may be a tough one but isn’t that the point of ‘Throw the Topic’ discussions anyway?

  1. I loved both of them equally, the question is a bit unfair because they were different types of players. Arsenal wasted the potential of Fabregas though by not giving him a team to win things with, Pires on the other hand had Bergkamp, Henry and Ljunberg to compliment him with. Fab had Adebeyor!

    • Actually Shined and Shone are both correct forms of the past tense of Shine. They are used by choice. Neither is wrong.

      shine (sh n) v. shone (sh n) or shined, shin·ing, shines. v.intr.
      1. To emit light. 2. To reflect light; glint or glisten.

      There you have it, Mr. Smart Ass :D

  2. Who won titles and played a big role in contributing to his team? Pires left arsenal a winner fab left arsenal a loser and a quitter. Pires for me is a legend as much as Henry and bergkamp at one point he just couldn’t stop scoring amazing goals.

  3. Robert Pires was a true master, one of Arsenal’s Great players, Cesc could have been an Arsenal great but chose to go home before he reached his best!

    Pires by a Mile for me !

    • Spot on, Bobby would have (and should have) retired with us if not for Arsenes over 30 policy. A true Arsenal legend, and an incredibly skillful footballer.

  5. P’se Bob, i hope u didn’t bring this debate by just looking at Barca then u came with this assumptions. To set the ball rolling, even upto the end Fab’s career in football will never reach to that peak Pires. He’s another man wenger has failed to find of his kind. He was very good tackler with very dangerous interceptions with high pace, could put defences on tension and when he could reach in the box, his targets were always accurates even when he broke his leg, he still remain a man to watch on the pitch

  7. I’d like Pires better. I think because the topic say, “Which one give you ‘wow’ moments”, i’ll choose Pires. But, indeed Fabregas has a lot more potential to show. The think is he never get the best chance like Pires had. In Arsenal he is the heart of the team, but another players didn’t support him much. In Barca, he not more as an additional good member. His presence not really better than Thiago or even Busquet. At least he thirst about throphy has been satisfied there. Pires like we all know, has all the support he needs in club as well in country. He maybe not the heart of the team, but he like a vein who support the heart and that irreplaceable
