Eboue’s injury more serious than expected or has it vanished overnight?

By Aries

Eboue has developed a reputation for simulation on the football pitch but when he was stretchered off last Sunday after a cynical foul by Joe Cole it did look that it was more serious than that.

Arsene Wenger feared the worse:

"He has injured his medial knee ligaments. We will see in the next 48 hours but it looks as if he will be out for a while." He said.

Only yesterday sources close to the player himself told the Africa Press Agency (APA) that he is now likely to miss the whole of the African Cup of Nations which is scheduled to take place in Ghana between the 20th of January and the 10th of February of the new year.

This would have meant that he would have been out of action for a whole two months depriving both the Ivory Coast and Arsenal of his services.

But surprisingly Arsene Wenger speaking on Arsenal TV Online today Thursday afternoon failed to name Eboue as one of the players who will be missing the derby against Spurs on Saturday:

“The injury news is quite good compared to last week. The only one who is problematic is Theo Walcott. He is not fit to practice. He has had flu and has not recovered completely. Everybody else is available.”

The inference that can be made therefore is that Emmanuel Eboue is fit despite being stretchered off against Chelsea only four days ago!

Let’s hope so……

It would be good to have Eboue back though i feel he has never really gotten mentally fit since his last injury. He is still below his standards. I would rate him at 60%. On the other hand i feel Song might just fit so well in defense. Going by the blackburn game, Wenger should look at posting him in defence. He also has the midfield experience meaning he can still do the overlaps from defence. Watch our third goal and you'll see what am talking about!!

Hi 1970's Gooner here.
Agree with you on Eboue he is still not 100% both in body and in mind. He still chooses to make the wrong ball and is always in a harry to pass bfore he can assess the available options.
Song I think is a better player as a midfielder. I watched him a few times last season for Charlton and he was very impressive there esp at Man Utd away. He needs to improve his aerial ability if he is to make it as a defender.
That's just my opinion since you asked!

I think Wenger simply forgot to mention him.

To be a upright human being is to procure a make of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an ability to trusteeship undeterminable things beyond your own control, that can take you to be shattered in very exceptional circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly important with the prerequisite of the ethical life: that it is based on a conviction in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a jewel, something fairly feeble, but whose extremely precise beauty is inseparable from that fragility.
