Eduardo will END the curse of the Arsenal number nine shirt

I can't wait for the day that I see Eduardo put the red and white shirt of Arsenal on his back again.

We won't know what type of player Eduardo will be after coming back from such a bad injury.

Before his "assault" we were beginning to see the reason why Le Boss signed him. He was starting to settle in and was producing some great football.

Of top of this, he seems such a nice bloke, and to see him suffer such a cruel injury just seemed damn wrong.

I've a feeling that he will come back better than before and will become one of the BEST forwards in Europe. I've rated him from when before he signed for Arsenal, and was very pleased when he signed on the dotted line for us.

I reckon that finally we will have someone who will end the curse of the number nine shirt at Arsenal. The last few to wear it have struggled, Jeffers, Reyes and Baptista, and even Eduardo himself suffered from the curse when getting injured!

The number nine shirt is prestigious in football. It's a goal-scorers shirt, and Eduardo is a goal-scorer. I've no doubt when he returns he will do us proud.

He was a hungry player before and after missing the last part of the season and the Euros, he will return even hungrier. He is a strong person and that strength is what he will need on the long road to recovery.

He will get there. And I reckon that he will score a bucketful for our club. In fact. I think he will get 100 goals for Arsenal. At least. In fact, I'm having a bet on it!

The curse of the number nine has affected numerous players, including Eduardo himself.

But he is just the man to lift it.

Keep it Goonerish.........

Spot On... We should be able to manage the striking dept without him for half a season while ade is fresh... using VP/Walcott/Vela/Bendtner alongside him... too early to say about the 100 goals though, but he certainly looks game for more than a 100 for sure... Looks like he's made of sterner stuff... Thank God for that huh...

Well said once again wrighty, seeing what happened to Eddie when it happened almost brought a tear to my eye, it couldnt have happened to a nicer bloke in my mind. I dont know him personally but you can just see the way he has reacted to this incident that hes a good geeza. Let me just say this. Form is temporary, class is permanent. He'll be back. and im sure he'll join the ton club for the gun club.

Well Van Persie and Adebayor will be established first teamers when he starts making appearances so he's gonna have to start from square one again although having three quality, proven strikers can only be a good thing.

Top post again Wrighty,

You are better than them and to think they call themselves Arsenal fans.
They embarassed me.

Im A big fan of Eduardo he settled in nicely within half a season showed good skill and an eye for goals. I remember Pires and Henry both took a full season to settle in. He looks a team player and I cant wait to see him back. I would back him for the 100 goals.

DuDu Was just showing signs of class when it happened.

Its very hard to say if he will return to the player he was before the injury. It will take time, i mean every tackle that he goes for, or indeed every tackle he sees coming his way, he may pull out of.

I sure wish him well in his recovery, and hope that he is back in time for the second half of the season to fire us to next years title.

Delete the above

Eduardo's injury was one of those great injustices in sport. He was just hitting form, turning heads in the Prem and justifying the transfer, and providing crucial momentum to Arsenal's run in when Taylor decided let him know he's there. On top of that he carried the hopes of Croatia going into the Euros.

So fantastic news to see him back to training. Ahead of shcedule is great, but its all about his form when he returns. Can he play the same? Massive question mark has to remain over that, despite what we all want. An effective, fit Eduardo would be a real boon to an Arsenal team short on squad depth and still waiting for fresh additions

Eduardo is my hero. A classy fotball player and an awesome person - so humble and cool. When he comes back later this year for the first time since his injury ill probably cry of happiness.

Had he not been chopped down I dare arsenal could gone on to fight to the finish and could have won at least one trophy.

Not only would he have helped Arsenal win at least 1 title, but Croatia in my eyes would have won the Euro 2008 crown. Thats how good he is, the difference between a bucket load of titles, and not winning sweet F.A. Once again Wrighty, you've done us all proud.

Completely spot on - I can't remember a player I "fell for" so quickly. On the pitch he radiates uncomplicated commitment. A skillful player who plays the percentages, never showy and always precise, not afraid to take a risk when it mattered. You always felt the team would win when you saw his name up front. What a player! Great to see him on the mend.
