You Can Take Cesc But You'll Never Take Our Eboue

As the Cesc Fabregas transfer rumour rumbles on, The Mirror claims that we are about to be hit with a hammer blow to end all hammer blows.

If it wasn't bad enough that Barcelona are trying to steal our club captain and second best player, Cesc Fabregas, for what I would consider to be 'next to nothing', the Spanish giants are now considering a move for god himself, Emmanuel Eboue.

Rumour has it that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is livid at the public courting of Fabregas and has slapped a minimum value of £70 million for the Gunners skipper. Rumour also has it that Barca can't in anyway afford that price. So if they can't afford Cesc, how on earth do they think they can afford Eboue?

Maybe give us their entire squad and stadium?

They can have Cesc for 20 and a Toffee Crisp if they leave Eboue alone.

seriously no player is worth more than 50m im sure wenger would take that for fabregas. he could build 2 title challenging teams of under 20's with that amount.

I think you'll find Eboue is worth four times that amount easily .... but you should know that, what with having your username named after Eboue ;)

I'm absolutely furious too! HANDS OFF Barca!! If 70m is the price tag Wenger put on Cesc, Eboue should be worth 700m! So Rocky's estimate of their whole squad plus Camp Nou sounds about right. :)

Rocky's humor is a little too difficult for you to discern, isn't it Shelfinduced? // Anyway, hands off Eboue! They can take Cesc, they can take RVP, they can take Silvestre...oh wait. Well, we are the Arsenal and only WE have the right to say "you've just been Eboued!"

On a serious note, Eboue has become genuinely valuable to us and I would be actually gutted if he went. How many players knuckle down after a booing (see what I did there?!) and still fight for the team. Eboue after Song is one of most improved players and he can still improve. Barca can go do one... We've come to see Eboue....

Did you guys see a Guardian article about how annoying Barca is as a club which keeps saying 'mes que un club' when they're such morons? The article itself isn't truly well researched and written, but I agree with the sentiments. Despicable club.

Gooners never booed Eboue! They were just chanting his name in adoration: "Ebooooooouue!".

Tom, I DON'T want Eboue to go- I love the guy. He runs his little heart out. How he coped with and responded to that disgraceful booing, means I have a major soft-spot for him AND he is an important part our squad now. So bog off Barca and I mean that sincerely!

Don't respond guys. Not every single thread has to be reduced to a childish borefest of recycled lines spuds-style, especially when there's no quality banter on display, not worth it.

while arsene is fantastic at bringing in talent, he's not that great at shedding it when the time is right. is senderos still on the arsenal books? eboue should have gone as well... once sagna came in, he lost his place... he's not a great midfielder, he a good attacking right back...
