'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Eduardo Exit Stories Are Dudu

I've been rather disappointed to see that many news agencies, and even one or two Arsenal blogs, have being reporting that Arsenal's in form striker Eduardo, is looking to leave Arsenal.

The artist formerly known as Dudu, has stated that at some point in his career he would like to play in Brazil, and finally finish up his career in his other home nation, Croatia.

Eduardo was quoted as saying 'I want to play a season in Brazil but to close my career at Dinamo.'

Due to the fact we live in a sensationalist bullshit world, all major media outlets have mauled his quote and taken them all out of context, no surprise there, the big disappointment is seeing Arsenal fans jump on this bandwagon.

Gone are the days of one club players, it will be very rare to see the likes of Tony Adams or Matthew Le Tissier ever again, and we need to accept that.

It seems rather hypocritical to get on the Crozillian's back about his statement considering Gooners spend a lot of their time telling rival supporters that Cesc Fabregas isn't going anywhere despite the little Spaniard making similar claims.

Let's just let Eduardo get on with what he does best.

The comments from him are where he wants to finish his career. At the age of 24, I would suggest that he's not considering retirement just yet. I know the media wouldn't inconvenience themselves with basic arithmetic, but surely players typically retire in their mid thirties or later (injuries permitting).

Exactly LD - Even if he buggers of at the age of thirty (which is what is considered to be around a players peak age) then he will still have spent 6 years as an Arsenal player, which is a long time in this day and age. And more than enough time to make himself a legend.....just ask Bobby Pires!!!

As the great poets Chuck D and Flava Flav once said "dont...dont, dont believe the hype"!
Cesky
It's best we don't burn our hearts with these kind of bull***** that comes from the media. There will always be these little buggers in football.
Thing
Oh really, I only saw "he wants to finish his career in Zagreb after playing a year in Brazil", which is all sensible and natural for the player to say. Didn't see the present continuous tense of "Eduardo leavING Arsenal" per se in the news. But what do you expect from the press (and some blogs)...! This is exactly like Cesc's plan of ending his career back in Spain - which is yet many years later. To be honest I'm not expecting a lot of oldies to end their careers with Arsenal given Arsene's youth policy. Only someone like Dennis, who wasn't greedy and could live with 1-year extensions, could do it. Well between youth and experience I think Arsene's been balancing quite well so far.

A gooner exodus underway? maybe your players are slowly realizing that you simply aren´t good enough to win the PL, and that from now on you will most likely crumble, sure you´ll win the odd game here and draw one there, but ....let´s face it...you´re not good enough.
Blue is the colour
BITC, we r not good enough, yet we r sitting 4 points above u with a better goal difference.. wat does that make u then, i wonder?
McGooner
now let me see...one season in brazil, one in croatia, how old is he now? hmmm...i reckon he will retire in 2 years, so hes off to brazill...i love the way the media thinks!!! good luck!!!
pompeycarpet
He's 24, minus 2 years in Brazil and Croatia, he still has about 8 years with Arsenal. Or he can even spend 12 years with us, go back to Brazil at 36 or later, like Henrik Larsson you know.

Dudu is here to stay...atleast for now
the arsenal
Exactly my thoughts Lou the Gunneress
