Eboue Not Leaving!
According ot Eboue’s agent, Arsenal have turned down a offer from Atletico Madrid for our dynamic Ivorian utility man. That will come as a double shock to Arsenal fans; not only was a club prepared to take Eboue from us, they were prepared to pay us!.
The Eboue saga does not end there; Wenger has invited the Ivorian’s agent to London to discuss a new contract.
Whilst I am in favour of us having a decent size squad, Eboue has done nothing to convince anyone that he is worthy of wearing an Arsenal shirt. Where will Eboue feature in Arsene’s plans is a mystery.
We have Walcott, Rosicky and Nasri out wide, we could also soon have Arshavin. Wilshereis a natural player for a wide spot until he develops, whilst Armand Traore is doing a great job at Portsmouth.
Wenger does not trust Eboue to play at right-back, in a recent game Song played in that position.
All we can be guaranteed is that with Eboue in the squad, it will always be an exciting time at the Emirates, full of mystery, bewilderment and frustration.
