Time To Eboue Off!

Time To Eboue Off!

I watched the highlights of the brawl last night and was appalled at Eboue and his actions towards Bridge.

Firstly because it got Adebayor sent off, secondly because I don't like the example it sets to the younger fans, especially my kids.

It showed him in a very bad light, i have tolerated his constant diving and cheating, but for me that is the last straw. Why on earth just Because Bridge threw the ball away does it mean you have to have a go?

Was Eboue trying to get the ball to restart play? NO, the ref was still sorting things out.

Did bridge overact? Yes, but Eboue shouldn't of reacted like that, it shows me how stupid he is, and personally I would smack him round a bit to tell him so.

I hope Wenger gives him a stern telling off, like a last chance warning or he is out of the club.

Hoyte for me has shown was true commitment he has, the progress he has made in 12 months has been brilliant, but not only that, he plays the game fairly and his conduct is a good example to our younger generation.

Am I the only one disgusted, or do you lot feel the same?

I'll reiterate my thoughts on the forum. Eboue is no worse than RVP when it comes to diving/ disciplinary, yet nobody yells for him to be sold. Criticising Eboue has become a fashion statement for us, a get out card to show our objectivity to other fans. He is no worse than RVP who is equally culpable, Cesc has been guilty of petulance this season but nobody wants him sold or accuses him of being a bad example. I get annoyed by Eboue's antics as well, but I think he is very much a scapegoat where other players seem to get away without our scorning. Toure now has two three match bans for retaliation, should he be sold?

Eboue does tend to be a drama queen at the worst of times and I felt a bit embarassed to see his picture in the paper today as he landed a sneaky one on Bridge. He is still young, we forget he's only a year old than Hoyte but even at 23, he does need to behave himself. When he knuckles down and concentrates purely on his footie, he is quality. Whilst Justin Hoyte has been a revelation for me, Eboue is undoubtedly talented. He needs to grow up and learn to keep his temper in check but I don't think he has too much of a problem. He'll learn, whilst he's behaviour is out of order, it is not beyond repair. He was one of the better right-backs in Europe last year and at 23 he still has a lot his career left. We've had our fairshare of firebrands, the current crop is only just beginning to emerge. Fabregas is also one. Eboue is a great player, he just needs to grow up a bit.

He has shown time and time again that he requires some time in an Anger Management class...Eboue has a very short fuse, and often he ignites over the most insignificant matters on the pitch. He needs to learn to keep his composure for the sake of the young fans AND his team.

I think it is sad he is behaving like this because off the pitch he is deeply religious and not like the normal baby Bentley footballer of today. I really hope he sorts it out because he could be a truly great right back but there comes a time when you have to say enough is enough. That time for me has not arrived yet but it wont be far round the corner if he keeps abusing the support we give him and disrespecting the badge. Im glad you have stuck this article on here if only to show supporters or certain other London clubs they we dont tolerate cheating, diving and bad behaviour at The Arsenal.

To add...I don't think it's his fault as much as he is surrounded by influential teammates and a coach who needs to step up and teach him patience and composure. If they already are trying, then EBoue may have bigger problems that cannot be fixed.

In regards to RVP and Cesc I feel they react to situations badly but Eboue is more prone to starting situations.

Bridge shoved Eboue previous to that incident & then proceeded to smack the ball out of Eboue's hands. What was the reason for that?? Yet Bridge has walked away scott free & all because he is english................................Little Dutch, I agree with you, he is being made a scapegoat. When Jens does these things he is hailed a hero, yet everyone calls for Eboue to be kicked out!! Also love the way the FA have completely brushed under the carpet the chelski fans behaviour during that match. If it was arsenal there would be all sorts of sanctions!!

There are players who just naturally have tempers, whilst I'm not justifying Eboue's behaviour, he hasn't reached the point of no return. He is still maturing as a player and he can get his temper in check. If you think back he hasn't done as much wrong as we seem to believe. It's just that in a season where injury has limited his appearances the few times we have seen him something has happened. Someone needs to sit him down and have a long word with him, even anger management ala Wayne Rooney wouldn't be amiss but he has a very bright future at Arsenal FC. His off the pitch conduct is good, he is an examplary right back. He is the reason Lauren got sold. Arsene doesn't often get much wrong, Eboue needs to fix up but he is no way near the end, not yet.

Anyone remember Vieira in his younger days? As soon as Eboue learns to keep his composure, he'll be a world class right back. Everyone acknowledged that he was a revelation last season. No one condones this kind of behavior but I appeal all gooners to give him a chance. He is still better than Rooney in my opinion

But keplaz, you forget that Eboue was so desperate to win a free kick and feign injury at Anfield, that he sat in the treatment room for three weeks! That's commitment to diving!
