Well what can be said of Eboue that hasn’t been said. He shouldn’t be seen in an Arsenal shirt again. I tried as did many others at the start of the season to try to like him, but he has gone too far this time.
Sorry Arsene this is one experiment that you need to give up on, EE must be sold, it has got to the stage where you are flogging a dead horse, if the referee had of given him that goal yesterday his Arsenal career could have had one last chance, I am now starting to feel sorry for the guy now because of the torture Mr Wenger is putting him through.. Cash in or just let him go!!
Onto yesterdays match.. We was all disappointed because we all wanted to beat them spuds so much, but judging by the lack of text messages from the spuds that I know, they were disappointed more than us, The “homecoming” of there Dipper reject Keane and against 10 men.
The game went as usual the Spuds getting out of the traps first with there wild football, then the class of Arsenal started to tell. We started to create chances. The best of which unbelievably Eboue scored. Then for some reason I have still to be convinced of why the goal was disallowed, Eboue got a pat on the back from the ref and this started the beginning of the end for Eboue.
He talked his way into his first booking, then a kick out on rat face and he was off, this was just after Ade went off, we now had our no 4 striker on and the chance of seeing Arshavin later on in the game was gone..
We just battled our way through the second half but we needed that extra player.
Almunia…8…. Superb performance today, saved a few decent shots and punched some crosses well clear of his area. His kicking deserves some credit too, far better than the Mad German he replaced.
Sagna……7.5….. Good battling display from him considering it was the player in front of him that got dismissed, done well to get forward as much as he did.
Toure…..6.5… Played okay and with his usual heart but his clearances, and marking need to be tightened up.
Gallas…. 7…. Very solid, he cleared up behind, Clichy when Lennon was giving him a roasting, hardly noticed him really, that’s a compliment.
Clichy…. 6.5…. He is as mad as they come, all heart and running , but Lennon had the better of him on more occasions than normal, luckily Lennon cannot cross a ball. Looked a bit rough when he walked off, hope he is okay!
Eboue… 1.5.. Sorry mate your Arsenal career is over…
Denilson..6.5… Had his usual battling game, need to put on some weight for a player who is 5′ 11″ get thrown about too easily. He will look better with more quality around him. All good experience though.
Song…. 7.5… Lost the ball on several occasions but heh he isn’t the first player ever to lose the odd ball. Some surprisingly good penetrating passes and shielded the defence very well in the second half.
Narsi…. 7.5.. Our brightest attacking spark today, looks better in the middle and I like that little nasty streak he has in him.
RvP…. 6.5.. Not his best game, but he had to work far harder than he would like as he and Bendtner had to drop into midfield area’s when we went down to 10 men.
Adebayor…. 4.. He got a 2 for not getting sent off and the other 2 for going off injured, that was the best thing that he done all game.
Sub.. Bendtner.. 7.. Played pretty well, tries to be a bit of a Georgie Best but he is too tall for that, needs to win more headers and use his height and strength more. but not a bad performance..
Manager.. 5…Mr Wenger obe… Nearly pulled off a masterstroke with Eboue but it backfired big time.. needs to trust the players like Vela and the like more..
As they say.. Things can only get better and I am sure they will. Bring on Cardiff!!
Some real sad news coming out of Australia this morning. My thoughts are with you guys over there!
