Vital Eboue

Vital Eboue

Since the repulsive actions on Saturday that Emmanuel Eboue was unfortunately on the end of, a breath of fresh air has swept over Vital Arsenal, as Gooner members from all around the globe logged onto the Vital network bearing their support and condolences for the midfielder from the Ivory Coast. This support has currently earned him 60% of the MOTM vote for the game against Wigan. When I added this poll to the site, I had no idea there would be such overwhelming support for Eboue, but instead I thought that I would be questioned for even putting his name into the mixing pot. But I think this goes to say that the members on this site see him as the pivotal element, that he is, to this Arsenal squad. His versatility, attitude, and team popularity makes him indispensable. So here`s to you Eboue, and from all of us at Vital Arsenal, I hope you have a blinder today against F.C. Porto.

P.S. If your up for a good laugh scroll through the few pages of hilarious pictures that various VA members have posted to glorify our Eboue. The Legendary Eboue

He certainly wasn't Man of the Match, but having him leading the poll says a lot about what the fine people on this site think of Eboue.

I think Eboue is a squad player and not much more, but he's going to be playing for us, like it or not because of all the injuries we get, and he should be supported. As should all the rest of the players. Let's just hope that this support for Eboue doesn't come at the expense of someone else.

He is totally symbolic of the malaise in quality that has swept through our team since the invincibles (although part of it, not integral) and the lack of investment in top quality talent this club has suffered from. Although a useful squad player and fairly handy to have around, that is about it and I for one prefer more from the players at my club. Feel free to slaughter me for it, I’m used to it on here now but that is my opinion and until we get players like Diaby, Denilson, Eboue and several others replaced with actual talent that has achieved something already or has some semblance of winning and experience we will continue to rely on the top teams slipping up to grab hold of their coat tails. Make no mistake, none of the above would get anywhere near Liverpool, Man Utd or Chelsea’s first 11 yet they are all over ours and we continue to be paying the highest of all in terms of tickets etc. When will we start getting treated with a little respect by the club? Wenger thinks we are foolish enough to be swayed by the media opinion (Not me sir) and I find it insulting as do many others that go to home games/season ticket holders that he thinks we are gullible/stupid enough to allow down market rags to dictate what we think.

I think the bubble could begin to not so much 'burst' but slowly deflate... more and more Arsenal are condsidering the £1k+ renewal on their ST for next season.
10/12/2008 09:16:00
Will people be happy t pay £1200 to watch a team of youngsters acting as our first 11 next season if we don't win anything again? Personally I don't care if we win or don't I will go regardless, but it isn't people like me the club care about........People will get tired of paying £8 for burger and chips or whatever it is and as you mentioned shewore, we will see a slight down turn in our attendances due to the lack of team investment and extortionate prices.
10/12/2008 09:21:00
Yep, and the slight increase this year was down to 'inflation'... what happens if we do experience deflation...? Put the prices up?!?! The board also bang on about our long waiting list, but you can bet your b0llox to a barndance they won't all take up the £1k+ prices...
10/12/2008 09:31:00
Will they take the VAT off next years tickets and any that will be sold afte rthe decrease this year?
10/12/2008 09:35:00
Doubt it! I read that only the mickeys were doing that at the moment, £1 each per ticket, although i think some of our tickets are down £1 each, not sure though. In the scheme of things it means eff all really.
10/12/2008 09:41:00
I know overall it makes no difference or little difference to us financially as fans, but the gesture would mean an awful lot more. Funnily enough Im surprised that ANY club has done it!!!
