Kolo Impressed With Eduardo

Arsenal vice-captain Kolo Toure is astounded with the calm, composed and clinical Eduardo Da Silva.

The Gunners striker, nicknamed Dudu, has taken a while to find his feet in Europe's premier competition, but his deadly accuracy is winning the hearts and minds of Gooners everywhere.

The Crozillian frontman never seems to miss, and his astonishing calmness in front of the onion bag has impressed everyone, including Gooner's favorite, Kolo Toure.

'Eduardo's finishing is unbelievable,' said Toure. 'It seems that every time he gets a chance he scores - and he also manages to score at very important times for us. His composure is outstanding when he is in front of goal.

'He has now played with Nicklas [Bendtner] for some time and they know each other's games very well and they look a very good partnership.

'It is great for us to have them playing so well, especially as we have Robin van Persie and Emmanuel Adebayor ready to come back - it means we will have four top-class strikers.'

I feel very happy that we have Eduardo.
So now our 'secret weapon for the 2nd half of the season' has become the worst-kept secret now! :) Hey this is FUNNY, see how Cashley lost face:
Hopefully he continues his fine form without injuries and bring home the trophies.
hey am new here,been an arsenal fan since i was 5 though lol!gys be ready to see lots of me

I dunno what it is, but I really believe Eduardo can be the guy that wins us the Champions League. I just think that no matter what the circumstances, or the opposition, this guy will always finish whatever chances are given to him. He's live van Nistlerooy (though it pains me to say it).
edurdo is what we have been looking for!now its upto arsene to give him more games to prove his worth.....we got 4 top class strikers not like the spuddies lol
the arsenal
Eduardo gives me the impression that he could score in huge games given his temperament. It's uncanny that Wenger said he could be huge in the second half of the season, and Everton was literally game number 20 and he's scored in every game since. Having four top strikers doesn't just give us good options for starting a match, but Bendtner, Eduardo, RVP and Adebayor have all shown before that they can make an impact from the bench.

Spot on LD I think Eduardo is at his best in the big games something about his lack of nerves and all around cool approach, nerves of titanium me thinks and welcome the arsenal, the more the merrier.
thnx armory..more than pleased to be here

Surely this interview was translated first right?
Blue is the colour
Not into chav unfortunately though Blue.
BITC(H), if you get your head out of your ass, maybe you can read it better.
i would prefer if eduardo was our romario,and not van horse head....

Dudu's a poacher in the classical sense, and we definitely need that. What impressed yesterday was the balls he played thru, esp the one to Nick for his goal. Van horse head was a poacher, but that was all. I think our Ed can both poach and playmake, in which case we are sitting pretty!
As long as he keeps knocking in all the chances he gets we will keep winning.
It's not surprising that Dudu can make defence-splitting through balls, as not only he's the Croatian league top scorer last season but he also made quite a number of assists in his name. This is a good quality to have, since we don't want to have a one-dimensional striker.
anyone still thinks we need anelka???
we dont need le sulk,does anyone know when rvp will be back and since we got hot competition in our strike force i wonder how le proff will deal with rvp when he gets back
the arsenal
just how stupid can a person get? cannavaro is an example of a really really stupid person
Ah he's posted the same thing in 3 articles. What a sick dick you are a ******** bastad and thats all youll ever be
Toure is spot on, Dudu's finishing is incredible, and his composure in front of goal is astounding. Wenger still has his magic touch (and a crytal ball apparently, coz he said Dudu will be his secret weapon in the 2nd half of the season), and its great to have such competition upfront.
I still believe eduardo has a way to go to make a big impact to our premiership campaign but i believe eduardo is perfectly suited for europe and can be massive to our CL ambitions. If we need late goals in ties...he can bring them!!
I don't see him as a poacher but more of a real top class centre forward. The kind that is always on the shoulder of the last man and scores with almost every chance. I don't remeber him scoreing any tap ins.
Cannavaro, i cant wait to see dudu make you eat kaka! I predict him to bag the winner, and then your beloved club will begin a slide into obscurity, How dare you talk bad of African players. You are the kind of person that football in generall could do without. When there is no corruption in Italian football and when most Italians i see are not cheating whining diving primadonna's, maybe then you have a right to be a smug git. Until then, just shut up.
I'm in shock - a racist Italian, whatever next? Hey Cannavaro I p1ssed on your colisseum, and kissed the lamp post they strung that fat cvnt Mussolini from! Berlusconi is a crooked little wig wearing dwarf and Nesta is a transsexual, capiche?
Welcome the arsenal. Nice one KT, we agree there and if Eduardo continues what he is doing currently then it confirms that.....ARSENE KNOWS!!!
