Amazing Eduardo Back In Training

An astonishing video has hit the interweb with footage of Arsenal striker Eduardo back in training.

A little over 3 months ago, Eduardo suffered a leg break, so horrific that most television companies refused to show it, by the feet of Birmingham 'gentle giant' Martin Taylor.

Amazingly Eduardo's recovery is well on it's way and now a video has been released of the Crozillian going through some pretty rigorous training I must say.

Many people, including myself, thought Eduardo's career was well and truly over after making the wrong decision to look at images of Eduardo's injury.

The news of Eddie's swift return to training will warm the hearts of all Gooners, indeed football fans in general.

If the stories that he can resume full training at the beginning of August are true, having only been out for less than 6 months then he will have lost very little. He could be back in full action as early as October. That has to be excellent news for the club and, in many ways more importantly, for him.

The most positive thing for me was his body language. His movements and facial expressions showed me one of the most determind son's of bitchies around. Can't wait to see you back Eddie!!

Thank God he's such a strong boy! We knew he's made of very stern stuff and would come back didn't we? Even for an optimist like me, his progress is nothing short of amazing!

impressive recovery... it speaks volumes for his strength of mind and how positive he was when he came out of hospital... he should be sprinting in 3-4 months but i'd rather he came back in the new year.. he and us can't afford to take any risk...

incredible - i too was one of those that thought he would do well to play again but he 'might' even play again before the year ends, quite abit before the end of it aswell maybe, which would be a remarkable recovery. good luck to him.

That is a Wolverine level of healing, he is obviously one of those mutants and Wenger is some kind of Charles Xavier figure. Eduardo is amazing, the recovery will be made complete when he puts on an Arsenal shirt and becomes a goal machine.

Yep, truly breathtaking. I hope his comeback is like Larsson's, who was out for only a short time and came back better than ever. However,the physical recovery is half the battle, the real question is, how will he react when that first tackle comes in?

It's as if the video was made before he ever got injured (except for the scar on his foot). Truly incredible. Can't wait to see him back on the pitch, although we must be very careful about when we put him on.

LD - The look on his face suggests to me that he can't wait to find out. Exceptional character. Since I snapped my humerous bone in a drunken armwrestle, the last thing I'd want to do is try it again .... and that was 6 years ago .... lol

Rocky, we're talking about a guy who refused to take morphine injections in such pain. I don't think it'll make him scared of tackles, but make him stronger cos he's been through the worst and nothing will scare him anymore. (Optimist speaking again.)

Dudu seems to be a tough character. He will recover physically (and its good to see him exercising) and he will recover mentally. I'm certain of that. You only have to read of his struggles to make it as a professional footballer and you know that we have a deceptively mean SOB playing for us.

Just goes to show how good the Arsenal medial staff are. This guy could be a huge player for us in the latter stages of next season. Hopefully he can bag some of those vital second goals to kill teams off. We missed that a bit since his injury, especially vs. the big teams.

I could not be happier for Eddie, what a champion, I only feel sorry for him and all Croatians that he wont be able to take part in the Euro 08's as I seriously thought with him in their side Croatia were a good outside chance at winning that competition. Would love to have him back in our side asap, his contribution last season was invaluable and his injury in my mind probably made the difference between a title winning season and the collapse we suffered.

if dudu can return in january for us it would be awesome. i hope in the meantime he takes his time towards a complete recovery and rediscover his old form. cant help but feel sorry for croatia though. second highest scorer in the qualifiers missing from the squad. and also to our club, he COULD have made a difference in a season where the margins between winning and losing was very small. just wanna shout out a well done to the medical teams in brazil and arsenal, keep up the good work.

Lou, Eduardo refused those morphone injections because he'd already been administered some sort of relaxant while still on the pitch--it calmed him down. Also, luckys, I provided a Portuguese translation of his comments in that interview in the previous thread (the one about Blatter).
