Eduardo Suffers Leg Break

Eduardo Suffers Leg Break

Arsenal striker Eduardo Da Silva has suffered a leg break in the first couple of minutes at St Andrews

Birmingham's Taylor seemed to make an inocuous challenge on the Crozillian, but the referee dissmissed the player instantly, with both Arsenal's medical team and the paramedics running on the pitch immediately.

The reactions of Cesc Fabregas, Bacary Sagna & Manu Adebayor told us that it was a break, and horrendous one at that. Indeed, SkySports deemed the images so horrific that they refused to show them again.

I write this article while there is still 10-15 minutes left of the first half, finding it hard to be enthusiastic about the match, I also wonder how the players will keep their concentration on the pitch after seeing their team mate and friend in such a way.

My thoughts are with Eduardo, and hope to see him back on the pitch as soon as possible.


After the intial thought that the tackle was both unintentional and unfortunate, I have been given a link to a picture that proves otherwise. Feel free to click the link as the image is not in poor taste and a fraction of a second before the break, it does however prove what a wreckless challenge it really was.

You can tell it was bad when they didn't show the replay. Sincerely hope he makes a full & speedy recovery!

My personal regards to the lad, and I'm sure I wont be alone in that. It was horrible, and I only hope that he can get through it, because it really did look like it might've been that bad.

Since the incident my mind has been wandering about how bad it was, and I didn't see it, and I'm glad I didn't. Considering they replayed Djibril Cisse's injury on tv and that was awful, I can only speculate as to what happened to Eddy. I can't say I'm overly concerned about the result at this moment in time.

Nobody ( with any sense ) likes to see any player injured, wishing Eduardo a full recovery.

I've got a REALLY BAD FEELING for this game and for Dudu... This might be the end of the season for him...

It didn't look good. Hopefully, he'll be back soon.
