[LNB]"My recovery from a cracked fibula is on schedule," Fabregas said. [LNB]"I have started jogging for the first time, and it looks as if I will begin running again properly tomorrow." [LNB]The midfielder, who has been out of action since the Champions League quarter-final second-leg against Barcelona in April, continued: "I am happy with how things are going. [LNB]"Now I just have to be patient, making sure I come back as strongly as I can."[LNB] You might think that players like Xavi and Pirlo are the best but they are not. Fabregas has one thing that they don't - pace. gunner4life2010 Fabregas was writing in his captain's programme notes ahead of Arsenal's final game of the season against Fulham at the Emirates.
