CAN EBOUE EVER SHAKE OFF THE BOO-BOYS?......

There is no doubt that Emmanuel Eboue isn't the most popular of Arsenal players amongst Gooners.

He doesn't endear himself to the Gooner faithful with his sometimes infuriating antics. The play-acting and diving has to stop before he can begin to build bridges with the Arsenal crowd.

However, speak to members of the Arsenal squad and they absolutely love the bloke and say that he is great for team morale.

Is Eboue a bad player? I don't think so. I think sometimes we are so wrapped up in the things he does bad we forget about the good things he can produce.

I feel Eboue is a competent player. I think his best position is at right-back but lets face facts, Sagna is one of the best right-backs in the world and isn't going to be dislodged any time soon. I could think of a lot worse cover for Sagna than Eboue though.

We have to cut Eboue a bit of slack. Last season was his first in midfield and it will take time for him to adapt there. However I don't feel that the middle of the park is a place for him to be!

I reckon Eboue COULD shake off the boo-boys and regain some support from Gooners if he cut out the play-acting and diving.

If he committed himself 100% to the Arsenal cause and showed that he willing to change his ways and stop the silly shit that he does then he may begin to get some affection from us.

Only Eboue can achieve this. He needs to realise we don't like his antics and it's time for him to grow up.

If he wants to endear himself to us then he knows what he has to do. Its up to him to shake off the boo-boys and show how good he can really be.

Keep it Goonerish.............

I understand what you are saying Wrighty but he is one frustrating mother-fucker!

I don't think that he could change his ways. I think he is too far gone.

100% AGREE.

EBOUE HAS GREAT POTENTIAL BUT NEEDS TO CURB HIS ANNOYING WAYS.

HE WOULD NEVER BE A FAVOURITE AT THE EMIRATES BUT COULD POSSIBLY BECOME A MORE LIKED PLAYER FOR ARSENAL.

THE ONLY WAY IS UP FOR HIM!

GOOD POST. LIKE IT.

I dont think he loves arsenal
i think he would go anwhere for the money
altough who would wanna buy him

the only way he can beat the Boo Boys each season is to either leave, or be sold, or simply score 10 goals in all competition each season.

SIMPLE AS THAT!!!

Spike said...

f he's great for morale and a bit of a joker, then he should be the effin mascot!

It aint his fault, its Wenger's. He should never have been put in as a right winger as he just aint good enough. Back up to Bacary is his role in the squad, well it should be, but now Wenger's doing things on the cheap yet again by trying to play Ebooowweee as an effin defensive midfielder!

I aint even concerned about his antics, its the fact he isnt very good.

And to think,m Wenger let Palacios go as well!

Fuck me bandy, what the fook is going on???

Eboue said he wants to play in ITALY one day with AC MILAN. HE IS PERFECT FOR THEM.

Theirs alot of spurs fans chatting
shit in here....Eboue's Class
no 2 ways about it, you name a better right back going forward in the EPL apart from sagna, Watch the
NewCastle Game and focus on eboue you might change your
views.....Nasri player of the year
you heard it here first..

Its not just the play acting, his passing is crap. 'Pass Master' my arse! For every decent pass he makes, 10 get over hit or go off in the wrong direction. Look at his back heel last week, it goes off sideways towards the goal. He was just luck RvP11 was following up at pace or the defence would have cleared it.

stav said...

I think phycically and technically he can probably play, but his decision making is shite i would go as far as to say he practically lost us the league by himself last year, because he fucked up every move Arsenal had down the right side without fail. I hope he proves us wrong and becomes a good player, we all want the Arsenal to do well after all.

Anonymous said...

he would be a regular in many smaller teams. we should be glad that we have a player that can play as a RB RM and CM. sure he is not the best player, and he does frustrate you alot, but he is a usefull player to have and as long as he doesnt complain or leach to mutch money I dont have a problem with him staying....

Second seasons are always better than firsts and I expect Eboue to be better this season. He looks like something has changed about him recently tho. He can come good. I have no doubt about that. It can only be a good thing to have him and Appiah in midfield. That'll give us the strength we need to support the defence and Cesc and Nasri dove-tail.

It doesn't matter whether the fans love or hate him. He's paid to do a job. I think Eboue is Eboue, just like Savage is Savage and Rooney is Rooney. It's an element in their DNAs. There's nothing wrong with having some aggression but diving and cheating is simply not acceptable. He'll learn to focus on playing his football without losing his temper so often. If he was the victim of the dangerous tackle Barton put in on Nasri last weekend, I wonder how he'd have reacted. You saw how Nasri just looked at him. Eboue of last season would have prolly been on his neck. But we'll see. I hope he curbs his antics and uses more of his football brain.

Eboue is like Ray Parlour was at the start of the Wenger era ... a powerful player on the right doing a lot of the less glamourous stuff.

My only complaint is is totally incompentant when he gets in the box ... the poor lad never has a clue what to do .. the backheel to VanPersie being the first right decision I've seen him make in over a year.

If he learns to shoot I reckon he's as good as anyone in right midfield .. a big IF admittadly!!

Anonymous said...

If he is such good cover for right back. Why did Wenger play Toure and even Hoyte there in front of him when Sagna had his injuries and problems last year?

Face it Arsene see's Eboue as a midfield player not a back up anything. So there's no point in everyone saying he is good cover as RB.

Spike said...

"2nd seasons are better than 1st seasons....Rooney is Rooney, Savage is Savage...."

Wow, thats amazing logic, hilarious!

Jeeeez, Eboue is shite, is only in the team to dance with Ade when he scores and he has some incriminating photos of Wenger and a shhep.

Theres no other way he could get in the team.

He brings NOTHING to the team, is a liability, is shite going forward and loses concentration when he's supposed to be defending.

I cannot see why he has not been let go, oh yeah, coz no fucker wants him.

By lump i mean eboues HUGE GOCK

Anonymous said...

i admit eboue isnt the greatest,but people who dont realise the balance he brings dont understand football!

Anonymous said...

people who dont understand football are the same gilberto boo boys who only realised what he did when he was out for half a season!

Anonymous said...

I dont think Eboue is good enough to be playing week in week out in mid field. He is good cover at rigth back and thats it. He would not be in my side playing anywhere in the mid field.. he reminds of a west african fraudster!!! sending out spam emails to depost a million trillion dollars in your back account etc!!!

Anonymous said...

He's crap. What's he ever done? On back heel in the box in 4 years amidst 500 dives, 10000 bad passes and 5000 fouls. "Pass master" my arse. Wenger is patronising his fans with such idiotic comments.

Anonymous said...

He is just an athlete his footballing brain is super super poor, rolling around throwing his arms up after every tackle i have no doubt in his ability if the guy would just focus hes not practiced his shooting wicth is discustingly dreafull 4 a pro player his crossing is 1 good 8 super super poor hes wasting his talent because he could be a fan favourate.WAKE UP U WASTER an it aint a GOCK its a SOCK this guys a JOKER

SHALLOW-MINDED FUCKS!!! that is what most of you are, I am a spurs fan and I hope all of you gooner cunts realise most off last seasons goals scored against your team came from the left side, Sagna would have half the impact he had last season if Eboue wasn't there to fill the void he leaves behind... stupid cunts

Spike said...

Maybe Imbeing too harsh towards Eboue, like I said, it aint his fault Wenger keeps playing in midfield!

But, please, dont even bother trying to compare him to Gilberto. Bert has a footballin brain and reads the game brilliantly. Eboue doesnt have a clue.

To state that anyone who dont rate doesnt know football is bullshite.

Wenger is too stubborn to admit Eboue aint up to it, thats why he comes out with stsatements like he's like Ray Parlour FFS! And he's too tight to sign a quality replacement.

For me, Theo is number one choice right winger.

Eboue should be back up to the teal lady.

Hey Wrighty 7, great blog. I was wondering if you'd be willing to do a link swap? I'd be happy to add your blog to my list of favourites if you'd like to add mine to your links list. I've only recently started my blog and could use all the support I can get. Check it out and let me know what you think.

I really think that booing Eboue can be bad for team morale because he's the most popular player in the squad so the whole squad would be offended that he is booed.

Oh and I think he can become a very good right winger based on his improvement this season. His passing has improved and he has drive. He looks comfortable there whereas last season he looked lost.

He's just immature, not bad minded and I think he's very offended by the booing so we shouldn't boo him, just like we shouldn't boo any Arsenal player, especially when we're into the season.

Fans are pathetic. Have you even seen Eboue play this season? His defending breaks down many attacks for us and he provides great cover for Sagna (unlike a certain Mr. Walcott). His been one of our best players so far, along with Nasri and the usual excellent Clichy and Sagna. Almunia's done nothing wrong for us either (that cross at Fulham was far too low for him to come out to collect).

And Eboue's not a backup RB anymore. I remember he played like 15 minutes at RB for us for over a year now, in the Everton game last season at the Emirates when he came on as a sub for Toure.

I think he is actually a right wing back, if that makes sense. He's not good enough at tackling to fit into a back four, and he is often 50m out of position (probably rolling around on the floor). But in a 3-5-2 system, he would be better as the guy on the right, as he can run and run and run all game.

He's not really good in midfield because he doesn't know or understand what to do, apart from 2 crosses ever. But as a sort of berserker, he is very difficult for the opposition to figure out, like late on in a game, chasing a result.

He is definitely no defensive mid as that takes concentration and positioning and patience, things he does not possess.

He is unpredictable and full of energy and that's it. Otherwise he is a cheat, a diver, a pussy who rolls around feigning injury, and a guy who deliberately tries to injure the opposition. Booing him is natural because many people don't want him to wear the shirt that they are proud of.

It saddens me to hear some of the comments which some of our folks make on AW and players. They are all looking for everything perfect. AW must be perfect in selection and we do not give him time nor the opportunity to do anything wrong. A common statement AW always going cheap but at least he knows what is wants to do and balance the book and you cannot have the best of everything, we need to support and encourage them, if each time we fail we go buy a big ticket player then we should maybe selling the club and let the arab and russian managed the team. The beauty of the game has been created by AW and his believe and fortunately for him he has a supportive board. I am sure AW wants to win something but please remember he is entitled to some mistakes but overall he is excellent for the club. I was one of those that stayed up late to get news of the transfer market but was disappointed but how often AW has gotten it right for us for the beautiful game but not much compliments, too many whinnies and imagine if we give them more support and have a fair mind and often more encouragement and believe in the manager who has taken us thus far. The beautiful game in perfect for the entertainment and enjoyment of the game and needless to say it is good to win some trophy but not at a cost of betraying what you believe in. AW we believe and the beautiful game is some thing which we can be proud of as gooners or gunners or whinnies.

whats the differents between theo an eboue, nothing. they are both wasters but i dont see any1 attacking theo. theo is rubbish, only thing he can do is run

wegunnerbekings said...

Theo is rubbish? He is 19, a regular player at a top european club, called up to the national side on a numerous occasions. And you call him rubbish, yeah he's fast and a good runner but he has great skill look at the goal he set up for Ade against AC Milan. That run was brilliant, the way he knicked the ball around Kaladze. What about his run against Liverpool, that was inspired, he didn't just run with an epty field in front of him, he took the ball past three or four players. You fucking plastic gooners piss me off your type of guy if u don't see maradonna style playing you think a player is shite. Cop on u idiot next time back up your emotive comments!!

I always thought Eboue is a decent player with a good technic going forward and producing crosses.But his diving antics just pisses me off tbh.He have establish himself as a joker and diver here.You cant possibly win fans over by using those antics over and over again each time.
He needs to cut the nonsense out of his game and just do what he have/can do each game.If he does that for 1 season long he can and will shut the boo-boys up no doubt.
