Eduardo Patience Is Paramount

Eduardo Patience Is Paramount

Different sites are today reporting that Eduardo has suffered and injury setback, and that it is a time of woe at Arsenal ..... well that's just not true.

The injury suffered by our Crozillian number 9 was so horrific many feared he may never walk again, never mind kick a ball.

So anyone expecting him to be back for the start of the season is, quite frankly, living in cloud cuckoo land.

So before the D&G merchants saddle up, I think that it is vital that we take our time in getting Eduardo back into the action. I'd rather Arsenal go the next 5 years trophy-less than bring a premature end to a promising Arsenal career due to impatience.

I think it was generally understood that he wouldn't be ready at the beginning of the season. Having been out for 6 months it is going to take him more than a couple of weeks to get to playing fitness. If we get him back anytime between October and December he would still have done much better than many had forecast.

we brought him in when Henry went, Eddie, Eddie; he scored more goals than darren bent, Eddie, Eddie; he broke his leg but he'll be back and darren bent will still be cack Eduardo Silva, Arsenal's Number 9.

The article doesn't say anything about an injury setback, just that he won't be ready until the end of September or so, which is still earlier than we expected him. I think Eduardo's claims that he'd be ready to train next month may have been fuelled by his optimism rather than based in medical fact. Of course to the papers this constitutes a 'striker crisis'.

Arsene won't be letting him return until he is well and truly 110% ready. Extra 'arsey' points though for the delightful "Before the D&G merchants saddle up" :-)

Sadly I don't think the D&G merchants need to saddle up since they spend all their time on their high horses!

That was just one of a few articles ... one of which claimed Eddie had suffered a set back!!

Im guessing D&G merchants are the Le Grove sort?

We all want Edu to take all the time it takes anyway. Two weeks more or two months more. The most important thing is that he can run and play football again. We were talking about the end of the year, this is still much better than we feared. We'll all be there for him when he pulls on the shirt and get onto the pithc again.
