Return Of The Ralph

Arsenal`s Cameroonian right back Lauren began his return to fitness on Friday as he played his first game for 11 months in a friendly match at Arsenal`s London Colney training centre.

It had been feared at one point that 'Ralph` would never play again after undergoing surgery on a serious knee injury back in January. But the fierce defender`s character shone through and he managed 55 minutes against Arsenal associate club Hoang Anh Gia Lai.

Lauren wore the captain`s armband as he led a team consisting mainly of fringe and reserve players.

He showed no reaction after being substituted and will continue his return in the reserve team before he returns to the first team squad.

We wish him a speedy recovery.

I really rate this guy, so under valued. Eboue looks to have drifted into a comfort zone and it will be interesting to see who wins the right back berth.

i think most gooners rate him too. has been the mainstay at right back of our club for years, and we've really missed him in the league this season, and when he is fit, he should be drafted stright back into the team to give eboue a reality check..
