[VIDEO GOALS] Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool: Calamitous Eboue Gifts United The Title

By on April 17, 2011

Emmanuel Eboue gave away a penalty in the 10th minute of injury time that has all but ended Arsenal’s title hopes. A very flat Gunners side won an injury time penalty themselves after Fabregas was brought down in the area, Van Persie converting to give what looked like a vital 3 points to the home side. But Arsenal collapsed as only Arsenal can, with some school-boy defending that resulted in Eboue bundling a Liverpool man to the floor when there will little danger, Kuyt converting in the 10th minute of injury time to end the game 1-1 but most importantly, pretty much end Arsenal’s title hopes for another year.

What do Arsenal fans think of Eboue’s actions, is this the title over?

    Eboue is not the one responsible for handing Manchester United the title, it is the other teams that have been unable to beat them that has done that. Welldone Manchester City.

    I felt the F.A.’s referee did something very suspicious when Newcastle were awarded two penalties against Arsenal. I wondered was the fix on by the F.A. to stop Arsenal winning the league. Then I had some time to think and realised that all human beings can make mistakes and that the referee appointed by the F.A. had just made two terrible decisions and it was just unlucky that Arsenal were the recipiants on that occasion. However, after watching what happened at the end of Arsenal v Liverpool game I am not so sure. Something is happening with the referees and it really stinks. I truely beleieve now that the F.A.’s referees are being paid dirty money by someone at the F.A. to ensure Manchester United and only Manchester United win the league. It may be next year or the year after, but the truth will come out. I remember match fixing being unearthed in Italian Football years ago. No one could believe it at first. One rat spoke out. Then another. Then all the horrible truth came out. It has been clear for years that you cannot question the F.A. They have no one to answer too. It is the same with FIFA. No one can hold these men ruling the game or their referees to account. Yes these grubby old men at FIFA and the F.A. are making lots of money now. But jail is jail. Let the truth be told.

    no chance of the title now. utd are 6 points ahead and 6 goals ahead in goal difference. eboue should be shot for that. sick of stupid defensive errors. please wenger get rid of the dross in the team and sign some decent and hard players. eboue, squillaci, bentdner, denilson, diaby OUT. reina, cahill, mertesacker IN.

    f*ck off man united.

      No it wasn’t. Lucas conned the ref. He knew someone was behind him, so he slowed down, and was on his way to the floor before eboue made contact. It’s a defenders nightmare because, what can you do to avoid it? You just have to have incredible reflexes to slow yourself, or jump out of the way to expose the fact that it was a dive. I don’t want to vilify lucas, lost of players do it, and he did have a great game, but it was an incorrect decision that might have cost us our chances, although it actually still isnt over.
      I don’t blame the ref because he was actually very good apart from that moment (and I think he booked a couple of their players unnecessarily), and up until we scored, I wouldn’t have begrudge liverpool a point because they defended brilliantly even after losing two of their starting defenders to injury, but the way that they equalised leaves a sour taste.

      On Man Utd – they have avoided 10 CLEAR red cards this season that I know about, which probably isn’t everything. It’s ridiculous the helping hand they get throughout the season (and they still bitch and moan about every suspension), and they would probably be chasing us right now if the refereeing were at all fair. Chelsea would have won the league by 10 points last year if Utd hadn’t had all their fortune in the early parts of the season as well. They were THAT much better, and these things are supposed to even themselves out – what a joke that saying is.

    why are we going on and on about eboue. this title was lost at the beginning of the season when we failed to buy quality. what do you expect from such mediocre players, mediocrity. arsene wenger has failed us repeatedly and should go, thank god there are alot of world class coaches available to choose from. until the supporters do an egyptian revolt by boycotting arsenals matches , i guess the mgt will still give us such crap

    i’m upset as hell but its the players that are the disappointment. no fight, no passion. Arsene need to clean house. he also needs to evaluate him methods. i don’t recommend firing him he’s a good coach. don’t forget he has won titles. we never want to be like Chelsea changing managers every minute. sir alex never won a title for 5 seasons until he regain it resently.

      we just need some experience and dedicated players. cesc isn’t a leader so we need a strong willed captain. cesc is too hung up on returning to barcelona

      • arsenal4ever

        April 17, 2011 at 7:14 pm

        i also wonder if cesc leave for barca. who will he replace in midfield. i guess he will be warming the bench for quite a while

          no player is un replaceable
          except messi.
          By the way fabregas never performs in big matches according to his ability so he can never be called world class player.

        • QUAN

          April 17, 2011 at 8:12 pm

          The only player can replace Fab successfully and Ars will be stronger is MESUT OZIL. I’m in deep love with this guy.
          Did anyone see he played yesterday against Barca. Once upon a time players can fool barca’s defence.
          But this deal may never happen. 🙁

      What were you watching? I thought we played great and really went for it, particularly in the first half, and did enough to win the game, just about, against a strong liverpool side that defended admirably. We aren’t perfect defensively but we kept suarez and carroll more under control than the other big sides have managed to.

    I’m taking a white handkerchief to the next game at The Emirates because Arsenal are a bunch of cowards with no bottle. It’s Wenger’s fault that our season has capitulated once again. As for Aussie Gooner’s comments: you need to grow up mate, we’ve drawn these matches not because of some FA conspiracy, but because Wenger has no grasp of tactics and our players are a bunch of bottlejobs! WENGER OUT, KLOPP IN!!!

    The truth is the truth. If We had won this game in injury time, It would still be a shame.
    wenger not only produce exellent players but also destroying game players: eboue, diaby, Fabiansky,..

    Most fans dont like Eboune cos he is a f**king liablity and does stupid sh** today was just another example ….what a waster.

    That said he has not cost us the title today, the squad players that were given chances when players got injury cost us the title like Eboune, Alumnia, Squallaci, Denilson, Rosicky and Arshivan (first teamer).

    Get rid of these very average players and bought players who will actually make the first eleven perform week in week out. So if you arent playing well you are benched its all to nicey nice and easy going at Arsenal…. that not the stuff champion are made off!!!!!

    There is a saying “IF YOU DO WHAT YOU ALWAYS DO YOU WILL GET WHAT YOU ALWAYS GET” I would have thought Wenger would have learnt after 0.0 against Sunderland and Blackburn if you play the same tactics it does not win you games. If you need to win a game to keep your season alive you must play two upfront RVP is not an even proper striker he drifts in to midfield Wenger has lost his tacticle knowledge it really is time for him to go.

    Firstly Liverpool fan. Secondly both penalties were the right decision. Thirdly, Wenger seriously needs to grow up a bit. Every game ‘I didn’t see it’ ‘it wasn’t a penalty’ refusing Kenny’s hand after the game etc. I think he’s a good coach but he if he can’t being himself to buy some players maybe it’s time for someone who will? It’s admirable relying on players brought through the club but you need a Carragher – you need an experienced player marshalling the defence.

    It was a good game, wish it had finished 0-0 though Spearing had a great game then makes one mistake (mind you, I can’t blame him when Fabregas is dancing like that in the box – brilliant play) and feel for Eboue but young players make mistakes.
