Eboue: I'm No Cheat!

Eboue: I'm No Cheat!

Since 'that goal' in Paris back in May, Manu Eboue has been called a cheat just about every week.

It did appear that the talented defender took a dive back then but I think that the constant jibes since then are unfair and Eboue agrees.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal's 6-2 demolishion of Blacjburn Eboue said: 'It is not my style to play like that.

'I honestly didn't mean to and I apologised immediately.

'I'm not out on the pitch to mess about or have a laugh. Sometimes you can be light-hearted, but not all the time. It depends on the situation.

Manu also explained why he and Robbie Keane went toe-to-toe in the North London Derby earlier this month.

Eboue said: 'When I came up against Robbie Keane, in that recent game against Tottenham, I got very angry because first he provoked me, then he annoyed me, then he trod on me and then he insulted me.

'I don't accept that. I don't like being insulted or shouted at by a player. I just want to do my job well and I don't like people messing about with me during a game.'

I believe that he doesn't set out to intentionally dive, but there's no getting away from the fact that he does. I don't like it, and I wish he'd stop!!

spot on PG. Eboue needs competition, it will make him a better player - and maybe some defending tapes, Lee Dixon-style:)) As far as our RB position: I am concerned about Ralph, what can we expect from him and what can he offer? It will surely take him a while to get back to his former self, and the pace of the game isn't getting slower. Maybe a midfield role would suit him more when he gets back. Hoyte looked shaky vs. Rovers, got caught out of position several times and lost a lot of headers to Bentley and Gamst-Pedersen. He does look gritty, great pace. I like him, but I feel he's not playing with confidence, looks like he's holding back a bit. He needs to improve his positioning, be more focused and physical. Get some (hate to say this!) Cashley C. crunch-tackles in. And then there's Kerrea Gilbert. What of him?
