I can see Arsene Wenger now. Questioned about the return of Eduardo.
"Eduardo will be like signing a new player"
That's one excuse for him not signing anyone in January I suppose. But to be honest it's true.
Eduardo will be like signing a new player and I can't wait to see him wearing the number 9 shirt on his back again.
Like every Gooner I was shocked and horrified at the injury that Eduardo suffered.
I was angry at the time because I felt that he didn't get the sympathy he deserved from the media.
It turned into a "Martin Taylor is innocent" campaign. I've often wondered how the English media would have reacted had it been Wayne Rooney on the end of a foreign players tackle.....
I suppose what is done is done and we should just be happy that Eduardo can resume his football career.
I hope he has recovered well. Not only for Arsenal's sake but for his career too.
He was beginning to find his feet in the Premiership and began to show us Gooners what he was about. I liked what I saw.
Gooners don't need me to tell them to be patient with him. We all know it will be tough but I think that Eduardo has the character to continue his career.
I actually believe he will come back stronger and even better than before. It will take time but he will get there.
Many Gooners believe we lack a natural finisher. Eduardo can be that man. He reminded me of Robbie Fowler. Robbie Fowler was deadly and Eduardo can be just as deadly.
Fingers crossed for Dudu tonight in his comeback!
By the way, thanks for all the kind comments for yesterdays blog!
Keep it Goonerish.............
