Nothing epitomises Arsenal’s post-Invincible years more than Emmanuel Eboue; a period for the club full of embarrassment and despair, mixed in with the odd moment of glory, but ultimately frustration for the fans and amusing memes for everyone else.
Despite all of Eboue’s flaws – and there were plenty – Arsenal fans took him to their hearts, even singing to rival fans: “You’re only here to see Eboue”.
The amusing fan chant could very well soon be adopted by the Sunderland faithful, with the right-back currently training with the Blacks Cats having been without a club since the summer.

When I arrived, he made a big noise like a tiger roaring. For a moment I was in a big panic but then I saw him and I thought, Oh its only Eboue’.”
