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

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.

I can't find that news on Eduardo anywhere on the web.

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!
Passenal
That was just one of a few articles ... one of which claimed Eddie had suffered a set back!!
Rocky7
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.

jens gone! flamini gone! hleb gone! cesc will follow hleb and leave, eduardo will be out for the rest of the season..... then leave when he recovers, ade will leave, rvp will leave or get injured, rosicky will leave if he can walk out of the club (literally if he can walk), theo too young, bedtner too young, nasri too young.... and french, arsene disillusioned, emirates stadium is cashstrapped, usmanov has completed a hostile takeover, david dein is the new chairman, tottenham to beat us in lge position. just thought i'd give the D&G merchants something to work with....

Goof - D&G = Doom and Gloom!

supersof - why so negative???
ForeverUnited
I see Rock Mister. Those who say that Ade is crap?
Tom14
what's the prognosis on his return? i still can't believe that injury...so grotesque.
RadioactiveD
I don't think there has been any 'set back' that is just the media sensationalising things to fit in with their 'Arsenal in crisis' spin. When he was first injured we were told he would not be back until December. It was Eduardo himself who said he might be back in Europe end of July/beginning of August. This was never confirmed by the medics so it was probably wishful thinking on his part.
Passenal
Arsene just said that Eduardo would be back for the Emirates Cup. I just wonder if he meant just an appearance at the stadium, or playing (really?!): http://www.mailonsunday.co.uk/sport/football/article-1037373/Wenger-admits-stuck-middle-Arsenal-held-draw-Hungary.html?ITO=1490

Malaria for Kolo Toure?
paul_ownz
Yay, Arsene said Dudu will be there to watch the Emirates Cup. Well at least we can watch him from the stands. :)
