    Fabregas - he's a strong player, still learning and he stays on his feet.

    They're two completely different players, so I think it's unfair to compare them. Flamini is a holding mid while Cesc is a playmaker.

    Flamini's got a place in the squad, will start eventually at the Premiership level, and will be a quality player.

    Cesc has got once-in-a-lifetime like vision and control and has the possibility of being one of the great players on the continent.

    So, Cesc gets the vote...

    Yep....the 2 are both quality and offer different skills to the side.

    Fabregas strikes me as a box to box player. He gets back to defend a lot, but also is a great passer and chips in with goals as well. Top signing.

    Flamini might be a Petit type player eventually.

    Difficult to compare the two due to their different styles, Fabregas is just quality and i would say he easily has more ability than Flamini, but im a big fan of flamini, he's a hard worker and you cant help but appreciate the effort the guy puts in.

    Both these players have very different roles and if you judge each player on how well they do their job(at the moment) then I give it to Flamini....but cesc under the eye of AW will become a great player. Hes gonna be a type of player that we havent had in while....a true playmaker

    I would echo the comments above.

    Cesc has better all-round footballing talent while Flamini has better defensive qualities and is able to get around the pitch better. The only problem I have with Cesc is that he sometimes seems a bit pedestrian in the hurly-burly of a Premiership midfield. I realise that they a both very young and have lots of time to develop, but at the moment Flamini is more suited to the English game.

    Flamini: Ridiculous workrate, very good skill.

    Fabregas: Very good workrate, ridiculous skill.

    These two could make a hell of a partnership in the years to come...

    I agree with most of that but I think the jury is still out on Flamini's technical skills. His workrate is awesome but he was caught out of position a great deal last season (unless Wenger said to him, "run around like a headless chicken even if this lets attackers run straight at the defense all game"), turned the ball over too often, and his passing is certainly not up to Arsenal standards yet. If he does manage to bring up his skills to match his workrate than he'll be a great player for years to come. Too early to tell.

    Don't know why, but I've a hunch that it's Flamini that'll make his mark with The Arsenal? He reminds me of Bryan Robson, Rayzer and Petit and I don't think we've seen the best of him. If he lasts, I see him progressively contributing more in front of goal as well? Don't get me wrong Cesc is pure class.

    They could be an amazing partnership but I am a bit concerned about a central mid pair so lacking in inches; would it really matter?
