  1. Eboue better not start. There’s no reason why we need to handicap ourselves by relinquishing RM to them- and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing if he plays.

  2. @ Stu,

    I total agree with you, but i know Wenger will definately start with him!!

  3. Eboue is the worse player in the squad yet starts nearly every match.

    So much for Wenger knows.

  4. Eboue looks better playing CM and thats saying something!

  5. eboue is fine (at least against twente) but the worry is ramsey and denilson, and walcott – all inconsistent and not quite tested; and this is a must win game

  6. Eboue is playing well obviously been working on his game, showed good crossing skill to put the ball in a dangerous area for adebayor to open scoring against Ajax… he just needs accuracy in the final third….

  7. Given the weakness in terms of personnel, Eboue’s inclusion is ok, however I would rather play Vela in place of Ramsey to start with. Let’s not forget that even at 19, he is a full international for MEXICO!! Denilson can then play as a holding midfielder. We need at least a draw.

  8. fuck me when you think thats probably (disregarding any miracle recoverys or worse, more injurys) the squad we will be starting the prem with we should thank our lucky stars we havent got the mancs or russians in the first 2 or 3 games!

    great promise in players like wilshere ramsey vela butto have to rely on them in their 2nd or third game as starters against the top teams would be suicide!

    get rid off roSICKy, senderos and “maybe” van persie….
    i had enough with injurIES…yes plural…INJURIES!!!

  10. u guy keep complaining eboue is a nice player but vela would be preferable in dat position

  11. the squad will be okay and will win the game, chill out.

  12. Agree with Stu and BerlinGunner, we can’t have Eboue starting ahead of someone like Vela!!!!

    I think Vela has warranted a place in the starting XI, whereas Eboue has done nothing other than setting up one goal against Ajax.

    Come on Arsene, make the right choice!!!

    Great article BerlinGunner, keep it up mate!

  13. By the way, I think people should stand up and take notice of the magnificent work Alex is doing on this site.

    An amazing new banner and a fantastic Next Match graphic have been created, great job man, keep it up.

  14. Vela can be reliable with his skillful dribbling some times so lets try vela instead of unconfident eboua

  15. Lay off Eboue. While he’s an Arsenal player that’s never brought up any crap about cash he’s fine with me. Football is a confidence game. How the hell would you like it if every time you went to work you had 2/3 of a 60k stadium giving you sh1t?! Don’t get me wrong, I think the boy has gone backwards since that awesome champs league run a couple of years back when I thought he had the potential to be the best offensive right back around, but for god’s sake he’s on OUR SIDE!!!! Come on the gooners.

  16. One thing eboue has is his ability to open up space for other players which vela clearly lacks, experience also counts, eboue would be a first choice for me.

  17. eboue ahead of vela not 4 me,wager pliz i belive da funs my not stop to cry as yet u have a norrow squd da is what happens these is jus the start wait when da season starts an tiredness sets in an for us the funs we need results,u better go back u polices an check on then many years trophyless
