EXCLUSIVE: Eboue: The Musical

A black day for English football with the news that Manchester City didn’t make it to fourth spot but we remain positive-ish here at Arsenalinsider.com — and to prove it we’re bringing you an upbeat-ish edition of over very own podcast, the sixth such broadcast we have recorded, and each and everyone has been met with a mixed bag of abuse. But we can take it!
In the Gunner-tastic feast of entertainment (it says here) we bring you breaking news of Eboue: The Musical, a show destined for the West End but which has humble beginnings as it is currently being shown at the Alexander Theatre in sunny Bognor Regis, West Sussex.
We also look at the final home game of the season against Fulham at the home of football in the Premier League on Sunday and also have a little delve into possible transfer targets for Arsene Wenger. And we make the contention that AW must field his strongest side against the Cottagers so we claim third spot and avoid the total humiliation of that lot nipping ahead of us in the table. Unthinkable.
We also run the rule over the current squad and assess who is cutting the mustard and who is stirring the custard and who is worth keeping hold of and those perhaps not so. We were hoping to bring you an exclusive chat with Charlie George but he is refusing to answer his phone and that must in some way be linked with the events last night in central Manchester one would like to think.
In other news today, the papers have various stories on offer pertaining to the Arsenal, the one with most credence comes in the Mail (and others) which quotes Theo Walcott on a fifth straight year without a trophy.
‘We can’t use the experience as an excuse now, with the experiences we’ve had as a side,’  he said. ‘We need to go that one step further. It’s been quite hard at times. We had a lot of injuries to big players and it’s been very frustrating. Myself as well, I’ve had a lot of injuries this season. People say if we’d had Robin [van Persie] we’d have had a bit more of a chance and I’m pretty sure if we’d had him we would have had more of a chance.’
Walcott adds that he has been impressed with some players but funnily enough doesn’t talk about his own form. ‘Nicklas Bendtner’s done fantastically well. He’s scored goals and that’s what you’ll be judged on,’ he said. ‘We had a lot of defensive problems as well, but the likes of Sol [Campbell] came in and did a great job.
‘So it’s one of those things where we need to hopefully try and look after ourselves a bit better and there’s a different side when you’re off the pitch and we have to look after ourselves and not suffer so many injuries.’
The Mirror carries an ‘exclusive’ claiming AW is set to make £10million defender Pape Malickou Diakhate which the paper calls the ‘first new signing of his Arsenal revolution’. The red top adds that the experienced Dinamo Kiev centre-back is the Senegalese vice-captain and a player that the Arsenal boss has tracked for more than two years.
The paper adds that AW has already captured striker Marouane Chamakh from Bordeaux on a free transfer, but the move for Diakhate ‘signals the Frenchman’s intention to finally give in to calls to loosen the purse strings at the Emirates’. Hmmm. We shall have to see.
