Eboue starts for Gunners at Tottenham

Arsène Wenger has made two changes from the team that lost to Barcelona last week.

In defence, Sol Campbell comes in for Mikael Silvestre to play against his former club, while Emmanuel Eboue is handed a start upfront ahead of Theo Walcott who drops to the bench.

Dutch frontman Robin van Persie is also on the bench after returning from long-term injury.

Confirmed Arsenal Starting XI & Subs

Almunia
Sagna – Campbell – Vermaelen – Clichy
Nasri – Denilson – Diaby
Eboue – Bendtner – Rosicky

Subs: Fabianski, Silvestre, Eastmond, Merida, Walcott, Eduardo, van Persie.

Is there anyone more CRAP on the pitch than Diaby??? How much longer can we afford to keep someone who makes it his personal business to give the ball away and be in the worst position possible consistently???

Come on you gunners…

I have told people over and over again. We are simply not good enough. No spirit no aggression nothing. It’s shocking to watch. I’m ashamed to even think we are good enough to win the league. Don’t make me laugh. We have got lucky to be were we are in the league. Simply not good enough. And I’ve had enough of wenger filling us with shit. Major clear out during the summer is needed. Desperatly!!

i agree diaby has been poor for the most games lately and it’s clear we desperately need sum better players come summer…. sol played very well so far and we shouldnt really be losing, we had all the ball but cnt produce a clear chance.

RVP is coming on, hope he and Theo will change the game (but with Silvestre at the back we will concede a few more though)

A poor performance but imminently predictable.too many passengers in that side without any real leaders.A side containing Almunia-Sylvestre-Denilson-Diaby and Bentner isn’t going to threaten much against well drilled opposition.if Man City carry on winning we won’t even finish 3rd.Perhaps,then,the Board and The manager might be ablew to see beyond their Pockets!

Wow, Bale and Rose. Who and who? The spuddies will be happy, but they still won’t be getting 4th. We however have biggger issues. Too many players not playing well, stop giving pay rises for winning nothing.

Ending tonight on a plus point. Campbell needs to be given a year contract. End of. And if wenger doesn’t. He is a fucking joke and should be sacked. He was our best player by a mile.

Well Bendtner is great. Almunia, Nasri, Diaby, Silvestre, Sagna, Walcott, Eboue, Rosicky (unless he still isn’t fit) all have to ask themselves what the hell they are doing.

The thing is that Spurs are still crap, so what does that say about us? With so much time to rest and prepare it’s stupid to get beaten by a team full of Spurs second rate players.

@Angry fan: You still insisting on it, are you ? Do you realize we have like 4 or 5 key players out injured ? No Song, no Cesc, no Arshavin, no Gallas and now no Vermaelen. With those five players in the team we would have kicked their ass. We lacked invention and penetration in the match today. Nasri and Rosicky playing too wide while Denilson and Diaby were too deep. RVP show a glimpse of his skills but still not enough to save us. Theo had some pace but was clearly frustrated. Their Gk were fantastic in the final… Read more »

. Injuries is no excuse. All teams have players out at any one time. It’s a squad game and ours is no where near good enough. Some of those players should be ashamed to pull that great arsenal shirt on. It makes me sick that I see some of those losers bottle it. Time an time again. Just admit it. We ain’t good enough. The excuse of being a young team don’t wash anymore. Change is needed. From top to bottom.
On another point I think wenger needs a new assistant. Keown or bergcamp someone of that stature.

Clichy was our only player that tried tonight! i f**ckin hate Diaby, he’s useless, he dwells on the ball, dont know wat to do, then delays delays delays, everyone is picked up wen he finally decides to pass. not got a clue wat Denilson does in this team?? Nasri and Rosicky was shocking tonight. Now we got Silvestre and Campbell to last the season?? Wenger knew the squad was too thin but he did f**k all as usual, he has to sort this team out now in the summer coz if not, we’ll never challenge chelsea and man utd. does… Read more »

i thought we played well considering the amount of injuries we had. van persie was awesome, imagine if we had him fit all season. if chelsea were without drogba and united without rooney they would have struggled too. ok, so our keeper is rubbish, bendtner is poor, and we need a backup centreback, apart from that i think we will be fine next season. We have improved so much already. i cant wait for the chamach and rvp combo. as for you glory hunters, go support chelsea, i can’t stand these ppl! ohh, and the last thing, i have been… Read more »

why couldn’t almunia catch that ball (not taking anything away from that strike but if it were Cech, Van der sar, Given, Reina it would be a simple catch) my goodness our midfield today were all in the wrong positions, everytime we made an attack it was 3 or for arsenal players vs 6 or 7 spuds we really miss our top player and we need to strengthen of bench to avoid playing these crap guys like silvestre, denilson, even rosicky who i think should be sold this year, anyways i really admired Van persie and walcott’s impact, brought out… Read more »

It was a good game, we had more than enough possession but couldn’t brake them down enough, when Van Persie came on it was an instant lift and we made a lot more chances. The first goal was such a fluke, he tried smashing and curling it on the outside of his foot, but he got it wrong. I think Almunia got a good punch and top marks for it, but he slipped when he landed and struggled to get up and then Sagna was in the way when he tried getting back to the line, also I’m not to… Read more »

Bendtner may miss chances, but at least he can score. Apart from him, there are no goals in this team (bizarre to say).

A power shift requires more than one victory over the course of 10 years!
Meanwhile,can someone explain why the Manager managed to wait until time had virtually run out on our season before bringing on the only player we had left in our squad capable of getting the two goals back against a resolute Spurs defence.
