With the distinct lack of transfer activity the major talking point amongst Gooners this morning, has Arsene Wenger made his most flimsy attempt yet to appease Arsenal fans?
After losing Lassana Diarra, Gilberto Silva, and more importantly Mathieu Flamini in the last 8 months, Arsenal fans everywhere were positive some kind of central midfielder would be brought in, especially after Arsene claims that they would 'stay up till midnight' if they had to.
However, a quick scout around this morning will show you that never happened. Unconfirmed sources say we made a last ditch attempt to sign Alonso, but that's about all we got. Instead, the only news coming out of Arsenal is that Wenger thinks Eboue is starting to play really well.
"Since the start of the season, Eboue has played well," said Wenger. "He had two good games in central midfield. At Fulham, he was one of the players who was not disappointing and he had a good performance against Newcastle as well.
"He's a football player. Sometimes I play him, sometimes Walcott, sometimes Nasri [out wide].
"There was a little bit of frustration from the fans because they thought that he didn't always have enough end-product, but he has improved a lot in that respect. He has put over good final balls since the start of the season."
Now let me start by saying that I'm really pleased with Eboue so far this season, he has shown a marked improvement in both his technical game and also his on field attitude. However that said, does anyone else feel that Wenger's comments are a lame attempt in telling us that we didn't get our midfielder, so we'll have to make do with Eboue should the need arise?
Mathieu Flamini left Arsenal along time ago as far as the transfer window is concerned, and if Wenger didn't get his man then that is solely down to his playing Transfer Window Texas Hold'em.
Many Arsenal fans are feeling deflated and let down this morning, and understandably so, but the transfer window is closed now, and we need to get behind the players we've got.
