I'm glad that Eduardo scored. Proper glad. That geezer does not deserve any of the treatment he is getting at the moment.
Yep, he went down easier than Audley Harrison against Celtic but you would have thought the Crozillian invented diving the way everyone is going on.
People in the pub asked why I was cheering Eduardo on. The reason? I'm more Arsenal than England any day and that goal was just a little pay back for the rough justice that he is receiving from all quarters.
Let me tell you something. If these donuts think that a little booing and jeering will affect Eduardo then they better think again. That man has been through more than they can imagine.
Eduardo had his leg snapped worse than a Kit-Kat and is lucky to even be playing again. Does anyone really think that the abuse will put him off his game?
I think I get more angry than he does and that is because I see the likes of Rooney, Gerrard, Drogba and many more hit the deck faster than 52 card pick up and it pisses me off that it is brushed under the carpet.
To be honest if this harshness on Eduardo banishes diving from the game then it can only be a good thing I suppose. My fear is that Eduardo has been singled out and that is not fair on him and Arsenal.
Both will suffer now because ref's will scrutinise whether Eduardo went down easy. It happened last night. Eduardo should have had a penalty and it was more blatant than the fact that Frank Lampard eats pies for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Anyway we'll see how things progress. Lets see if others are as victimised as Eduardo has been.
Keep it Goonerish..........
