Orient's unlikely FA Cup hero
He had been patiently fielding questions from dozens of journalists who knew next to nothing about him, so no wonder the FA Cup's newest hero, Leyton Orient striker Jonathan Tehoue, was not in the least bit surprised when he was told that Arsene Wenger hadn't heard of him either - well not before his last-gasp equaliser against the Gunners anyway.
There cannot be many French footballers that Wenger's famed encyclopedic knowledge of the game does not cover but, to be fair to the Arsenal boss, Tehoue's own manager at Orient, Russell Slade, was not completely clued up on the 26-year-old striker either.
Slade was unable to clarify when quizzed about Tehoue's (now corrected) Wikipedia entry, which had him down as the cousin of Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue. Tehoue himself had to clear that one up (they are good friends and share Ivorian heritage but are not related).
It turns out Tehoue also hangs around with a few of the sizeable French contingent in the Gunners squad - he is mates with Abou Diaby and has known Alex Song since they played at SC Bastia together. Perhaps one of them could have warned Wenger about what he is capable of, because he certainly knows all about him now.

Given he had already scored seven goals in the 85th minute or later after coming off the bench this season, Orient fans probably had more of an idea of what to expect when Tehoue came on midway through the second half.
Slade knew too - he calls the powerful and bustling 6ft striker his "secret weapon" but for the rest of us - Wenger included - it was a big surprise when Tehoue barged his way through the Arsenal defence and slammed his shot past Manuel Almunia.
"The manager told me I could cause them problems because they had a young boy [Ignasi Miqel] at centre-half, and I did," Tehoue explained. "I didn't really think about what I was going to do but the Arsenal players hesitated and I went through and took my chance."
Super sub indeed. But there is a less appealing reason Tehoue is on the bench so often. Along with his obvious ability to change a game, he is rarely fit enough to start one and has been struggling with a hamstring injury.
It may be hard to believe now, given his latest strike has earned Orient a lucrative replay at the Emirates, but there was an increasing feeling that he was not doing enough to justify his status as one of the highest earners at the cash-strapped League One club.
Slade - who did not stop smiling during his entire post-match news conference - was obviously not in the mood to say as much, but conceded there had been issues over the player's fitness in the past: "Sometimes it does seem a problem - he doesn't look as fit as expected, and he can be a little bit unpredictable that way."
There are other factors that suggest he might be difficult to manage. When O's chairman Barry Hearn took a punt and offered him a deal after he had turned up on trial at Brisbane Road in January 2010, it followed seven separate spells of no longer than a season with clubs in France, Cyprus, Belgium and Turkey. Huddersfield had tried to sign him in 2009 but a contract dispute with his club at the time, Konyaspor, put paid to that.
Not that Hearn will be complaining now. The club had already broken even for the season on the back of the £800,000 they earned from their Cup run and now, if their replay against Arsenal is televised, the fee for that and the gate receipts will go a long way to sorting out next year's finances too.

Holding Arsenal has already earned the Orient players a holiday from Hearn, something they reminded him of by playing Elvis Presley on their dressing room stereo when he came in to congratulate them at the final whistle, singing along to Viva Las Vegas.
Beating the Gunners on their own patch will be a different prospect entirely, of course. Tehoue only hopes to start that game but it is a safe bet that he will feature in it at some point. Even before his goal against Arsenal, the Cup had been good to him - he scored a hat-trick in an incredible 8-2 second-round replay win over Droylsden - but Sunday was the first time he had made a splash on a bigger stage.
He seemed to enjoy all the attention, of which there will be plenty more ahead of the replay, but he is also aware his new-found fame is unlikely to last. Asked if he would enjoy reading about his exploits in Monday's papers, he said: "I don't really pay attention to them because I know when we go out of the Cup, all of this will end."
Not that he is already resigned to defeat at the Emirates on 2 March. Manchester United are waiting for the winners in the quarter-finals and Tehoue said: "Anything can happen - this is the FA Cup. We have already caused a big surprise by getting a draw and, when you play football, you never step on the pitch and tell yourself that you are going to lose. Even away from home, we will try to get through."
