For those of you who read my blog last night, well about 4am this morning, it was very much focussed on the Eduardo tackle. I was at the game on Saturday and was shell shocked for most of the day - the longer the evening went on, the more angry I became and by the time I wrote the blog, I was very much the incredible hulk.
Someone who I think it's a right idiot, is Stephen Kelly - sometimes you have to protect your team mates and sometimes you need to shut up. He has the ordasity to say:
“I think Mr Wenger’s comments after the game were so harsh,” said Kelly.
“That is disgraceful talk from Arsene Wenger. It is terrible. You know the way Martin is. He slid along the ground.
Mr Kelly, you are an idiot – this is not “slid along the ground”.
It’s about a foot off the ground you idiot…!
Okay, anyway here’s more about what Mr Kelly had to say and he is really an idiot.
Eduardo has now been moved from the hospital in Selly Oak to London and will undergo further surgery in the next few days. He had exploraty surgery on the leg and full surgery on the ankle.
For those of you have no problems keeping your food down, there are two links which show the graphic detail of his injury.
It has been confimed as a “double compound fracture”.
This picture and more details of the fracture and how bad it really is can be found on
For the sentimental of you out there, here’s an awesome little tribute to him: his season in pictures. The latest information, as mentioned above sees Eduardo back in London and Slaven Billic has commented on the
“This is horrible. The fact he won’t play at the Euros is less important. Most important is he recovers as soon as possible and resumes his career.”
Meanwhile. Croatia caption, Niko Kovac said:
“I can’t believe this happened. Also, I can’t believe such brutality still exists in football. I don’t even want to speculate about the time of his (Eduardo’s) absence. Let’s wait for the doctors to give their opinion.”
Well, time to get a KFC for me and the lads. I’ll be back in a bit to continue this post…
And back to the blog and a continuation of the Sunday Round-up. Carlos Vela scored this weekend for Osasuna against an Athletico Madrid team which contained two former Premiership in Diego Forlan and Jose Reyes. Reyes is starting to look a better player than last season, but still somewhat off the standard that made Arsene sign him many years ago. I will always remember the introduction to the Arsenal with two goals against our rivals Chelsea… memories hey?
The injury to Eduardo has highlighted our striking options and with Van Persie out or at least not available for selection, we’re not to two recognised strikers in Bendtner and Adebayor. Young Theo Walcott can be added to that category obviously, but with Rosicky & Diaby still out and Eboue suspended for another two games, he and Hleb are the only “wide” options we have – neither actually being a real winger. Diarra would have had a serious amount of games if he stayed but that’s another conversation.
Til tomorrow, have a good day!]]>
