Anyone watching the Arsenal Birmingham game?

Speaking from experience (I broke my arm in two places playing football when I was 14) breaking a bone is absolute agony. I really hope it isnt career threatening and it looks as if he wont play for Croatia at Euro 2008 now. It's also his birthday on Monday icon_sad.gif

that's utterly sickening, not sure it's such a wise idea to post those pics. Taylor should be suspended until Eduardo can take the field again.

Not sure I agree. I haven't seen the tackle yet but I've heard that the tackle wasn't that bad. It was just an accident that Eduardo broke his ankle. If so then I don't think it's fair to suspend him. Not even sure a red card was warranted.

surely you're taking the piss!! Studs up into his ankles with his full body weight leaning into his ankle!

Here's the _Guardian_ match report's take:

"Apologies for not watching the football for a couple of minutes - it's basically a training session anyway - but I've just seen a picture of Taylor's challenge, and it is completely and utterly disgraceful. Flying through the air studs up, he lunges in halfway up the shin of Eduardo's standing leg. The striker's leg clean snaps at a right angle; no wonder Fabregas was holding his head in his hands the minute he saw it. It's going to be an ethical dilemma for sports editors across the country, is this picture."

I don't think a picture of a tackle tells you very much. You really have to see a video of it and admittedly I haven't yet so can't really comment on it. Reports I have read have varied all the way from 'horror tackle' to 'not actually that bad'

looking at the tackle in realtime on the other thread I agree that it would be hard to say there were seconds of premeditation (a la Roy Keane). However 2 things are obvious to me about Taylor's challenge

1) just like Stephen Hunt on Cech, once beaten he doesn't try to pull out of the challenge

2) why the f*ck were his studs up and halfway up Eduardo's shin?

sky sports news just showed post match interview with wenger he said that Taylor shouldnt be allowed to playt and that teams are always kicking arsenal blah blah were angels etc etc.

IMO dispite being an awfull injury thats going a bit far. surely hes not stupid enough to think taylor meant it
