Things keep moving around at Arsenal and fighting for a place in the starting lineup couldn’t be any harder. Get injured and you might as well miss out the season because somebody already took your place.
Someone moving up will only mean someone else ready to fill his shoe , this is how things have been at Arsenal and this is how a certain Justin Hoyte is hoping it goes, the youngster has seen some first team football last season when Eboue was injured but then vanished once Eboue was back and with Sagna signing for the gunners in the summer,And performing as well as he has could only have meant a step back into reserve football for Hoyte.
Sagna is now performing at his best and Eboue, the former obvious No.1 for the right back spot, is back from injury But something is different about him.
Playing on the right hand side of midfielder ahead of Sagna in two games so far as a right winger and he seems to be doing an OK job,Yes he is not a natural winger but he pace and power gives us a great option on the break.
Yes Eboue is not as good as Hleb or Rosicky but there is obviously something out there to made Wenger play him as a RM instead of a RB moving Hleb to the left and keeping Abou Diaby out, As in the Bolton game.
Wenger seems to be getting ready to turn him into a winger and bring Hoyte up to fill his boots at RB. When everyone was calling out for a winger, Arsene went on to buy a full back, maybe it’s because he has this in mind, maybe because he foresees Eboue as a winger?
Recently most of the manager’s talks have revolved about getting Theo more involved and bringing forward the talented English players in the near future, this comes at a time when Arsene knows his team ( in its current foreign dependent form ) will suffer most from Platini’s new regulations of forcing clubs to have a quota of local players … Arsenal only have one English player at first team level who rarely plays as well as a handful of others in the reserves … in the near future Wenger will sure be moving things around to adjust his game just like he always does but and a certain Justin Hoyte will definitely be hoping the manager’s new vision will include him
