He is better offensively than Lauren.
Lauren cannot cross the ball to save his life.

Defensivley, he played really well agaisnt Real Madrid and nullified Robinho.

We have a right back dilemna.
Lauren
Eboue
Hoyte
Gilbert

It would be ashame to see Hoyte or Gilbert leave.

he still has quite a bit to learn, he has improved a lot though since coming back from Egypt(didn't think it'd ever be pleased about one of our players playing in ANC)

he will be better soon, i'm sure, but Lauren is still Lauren. :proud:

next season i hope Lauren can go into midfield, he would be a good asset there.

I think Eboue should play from next season with Gilbert back-up and Lauren should be sold for some money which can be used on a decent central defender and other positions.

Rated Eboue from the moment he signed, despite the rather mixed reception he got when we did sign him.

Moving Lauren back to midfield will be very good. He can play defensive midfield or defensive right wing. He will not be exposed to pace and is never afraid to tackle. After all he was a midfielder when we boght him.

Eboue is better than Lauren, IMO. Full back is about two things, defensive skill and speed. Not many full-backs who excels in both and Eboue has good balance between both. And also great dribbling skill. He is absolutely better than Lauren when attacking since he offers penetration while Lauren prefers to pass it to other when he got stuck.

Same here, I was on about him after seeing him first time in Ajax tournament - power and compusure on the ball were there to see. Bloody work permit issues stopped us then.

Sell Gilberto and Lauren... bring through Eboue and sign a good CB and CM.

Why sell Ralph? He's committed to the Arsenal and never lets us down.

He plays/played as a CM for Cameroon for years.

selling Ralph would be idiotic, not only because he is better than half of our current midfielders. but there is no gurantees Eboue 's form will hold up, he's only young and youngsters sometimes start playing badly for no real reason, not all of them can be like Cesc. ;)

exactly, very much like Sendo. Last season Sendo was awesome and we were much like we didn't need Campbell but we can see how Sendo is struggling now.

i would never sell lauren, specialy after this season, players who can be rotated and have his quality are very rare
