Eboue Considering His Future

Eboue Considering His Future

Emmanuel Eboue says he is still trying to decide whether to remain at Arsenal or move on in search of more regular football.

The Ivorian has not won many friends in his time at Arsenal, the low point of which was when he was boo'ed by Arsenal fans in a 1-0 victory over Wigan, since then the versatile player has improved both his standard of play and behaviour on the pitch. However the lack of playing time has him considering his options.

'My future at Arsenal is not clear yet, I did not play a lot in the season and the World Cup is coming. There are many clubs interested in me, so let's wait. Before the season's start I will make a decision.' said the right sided player.

The departure of Eboue would probably bring many a cheer from a large portion of Gooners, but me ...... I'm not fussed one way or the other.

Eboue signed a new 'long term' contract 2 years ago. As he is still in the 3 year protected period he would only be sold if the club were happy to do so. I suspect he will still be here next season though still essentially a squad player.

Arsene Wenger has never been one to stand in someone's way .... if Eboue decides he wants to leave, I'd wager the boss would let him.

I don't want him to leave, squads are built on players like Eboue. He's played on both wings, centre midfield and right back this season and actually had a decent season. Unfortunately, people's preconceptions of the guy allowed them to block that out, especially his start to the season which was immense. By no means our best or most important player, but United would never have won the league without the O'Sheas, Parks and Fletchers.

Still trying to forgive him for sending off at Tottenham, it appears he's learnt from that though - think we need to keep him, he can play at a high tempo even if he has no clue what do with the ball in the final third.

If he goes, we are weaker in four areas of the pitch. Unless he is looking for a first team role, he should stay. But if he does want to go and play first team football, who would begrudge him if he moved on? Maybe it would signal more bench time for Wilshere and another defender from the reserves (Hoyte?) at right back?

I'd like him to stay, but as a squad player. If he wants to be regular starter then I don't think we can accommodate him.

If he plays like he did at the end of the season I have no issues with him staying, however as already mentioned, he is a squad player at best and if he thinks he is good enough on last seasons form for a guarenteed start week in week out he is very much out of touch :)

This Vermaelen transfer which has been reported on a few sites.. Is he any good? Is he really that experienced at the age of 23 with 80 games for ajax. He is only 5ft 11, hardly sounds like the big dominating CB we have been craving unless he is as strong as an Ox and leaps like a salmon
