is there a video of eduardos injury?


Essien's Strike

Recommended Posts


Watched it a few times on Sky + but it honestly didn't look like a bad tackle, and you couldn't see the actual impact. They even said at HT on Sky they didn't think the challenge was even a yellow. The picture above proves it was horrific.

Seems like it's too horrible to show, so it must be a shocker.

I don't know why anyone would want to gawp at it. Please could no one post any pics just links if they must so some of us can avoid looking, thanks.

Although, I guess for the same reasons that people slow down going past terrible car crashes - human nature and curiousity.

Sounds terrible, as bad as the Busset (?) injury ages back may be? Sky will not show it and they say the editors in tomorrow's papers are going to be in a dilemma over printing a picture. Personally I don't think they should.

Some people at Five Live have seen the still shots taken from another angle which shows how bad it is.

I just wish Eduardo sincerely all the best and hope he recovers as quickly as possible and will be able to play football again.

I feel really ill just thinking about it and very sorry for his fellow players who were obviously shaken up by this.

I don't believe the guy who tackled him meant that to happen he apparently went down the tunnel holding his head and he was very upset - very clumsy but not deliberate? I don't know I only heard about this switching on the radio half an hour ago.

Poor Eduardo. icon_sad.gif

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Martin Taylor should "never play football again" after the Birmingham captain's tackle broke Eduardo's leg.

A hand popped up from the back of the room. Wenger's PR team checked his face against their list of approved journalists, saw his name and announced his name. 'Loz Shed End'

Loz: Mr Wenger, I applaud your stance on players committing violent tackles. Does this mean you will never be selecting Eboue again?

Wenger: Eeez that the time, I have a train to catch

Oh Wenger saw it did he??

He manages to miss every other f**king thing!!!

Awful injury,bad tackle,I feel sorry for both of the players.

I feel sorry for both players too.

As for Wenger saying that Martin Taylor should never play again, right so that's every player who makes a stupidly mistimed tackle which in this case had horrible consequences should be consigned to unemployment for the rest of their days?

Well in that case there are probably quite a few players including some in Wenger's team of "angels" that we will never be seeing again.

The saying "those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" springs to mind.

David Busst of Coventry City, 1996. That was a truly horrific injury, with groundstaff using sand to soak up the pools of blood on the pitch. I think Peter Schmeichel threw up on the pitch when he saw the extent of the injury. Details given in the link below - be aware that there's a picture of the tackle at time of impact in the link.

Back to today, I wish Eduardo well, and hope he makes a full recovery.

I'd like to say that no player deserves to get injured like that, but it simply isn't true as far as I'm concerned. I'd have no sympathy at all if it were the likes of Eboue or Ben Thatcher who were on the receiving end.

That was a sickening injury and I hope first the poor bloke gets to walk properly again let alone play,

I dont know how much (if any) malice went into that tackle but I dont know if I would be able to put my foot in again if I done that to someone,

Hope its somehow not as bad as it looks.

I think it depends on how clear your conscious is. If you can look at yourself in the mirror and know that although you did that to someone you did it without intent then I think you can get over it. If deep down you know you intended to harm them, even if it wasn't to that extent, then, assuming you are even a semi decent human being, you will surely struggle come to terms with it.

That is why Roy Keane is more savage than human.

Thanks for the recap, I wont click on the link though.

I do remember that one and Schmeichel's reaction to it and how it affected all the players. Terrible - just couldn't remember the guy's name!

I feel terribly sorry for Eduardo - I mean that could be the end of his career - it was for Busst.

As for whether I would feel so much sympathy for certain other players, oooh that's a tough one you've brought up there. I'd like to think I'd feel sympathy no matter who they were.

Might give MOTD a miss tonight.

In fairness to Wenger he has now issued a statement to say that he takes back what he said about Taylor never playing football again and I think we can all understand why anyone would react the way he did straight after the game.

On the tackle itself I have now seen it in slow motion on MOTD and I although it was horrific to see I don't think there was any intent whatsoever - it was just one of those horrific events that happen in sport from time to time.

I just hope Eduardo makes a full recovery in time and he can resurrect his career.

Seeing it again on MOTD had completely the opposite effect on me, I thought Taylor went studs first and over the top, even allowing for where the ball would have been had Eduardo not got to it first.

Looked like a bad challenge, horrific outcome whatever and I just hope the lads alright.

Just as a subnote, great reaction to the penalty and final whistle from the captain!!!

I just think he got totally mugged for pace - I didn't see anyting that suggested he had a design to injure Eduardo. I do think it was a reckless challenge and merited a straight red, I just don't think he was targetting the player rather than the ball.

Wenger usually irritates the hell out of me but fair dues to him for taking back his statement about Taylor.

W*nger has just proved yet again what a total c*nt and hypocrite he is. He conveniently never sees any incidents which his little angels perpetrate, such as Eboue's challenge on JT, or indeed several of Eboue's other challenges.

Arsenal have a horrendous record of red cards since W*nger took charge, mostly because of their highly aggressive attitude. Think back to Keown, Dixon, Vieira, Petit and the like, dirty c*nts, the lot of 'em.

And I don't for one minute believe that W*nger meant a word of his retraction, he's just a lying piece of sh*t trying to cover his arse.

I also believe that Taylor didn't go into that tackle with any intention other than winning the ball - though of course it's difficult to tell even after watching it in close-up on TV, so really only Taylor will know.

Professor Yaffle said: "William did not kick anyone in the whole game. It will now come out that William was crazy and Taylor gets away with it. "Let's analyse the real problems in the game. William did not kick anyone.

A hand pops up from the back of the room. Wenger's PR team checked his face against their list of approved journalists, saw his name and whispered to Wenger: 'Careful sir, it is that Loz again from the Shed End and I don't think the train line will work this time'

Wenger: Let eem speek, zis time I'm reddy

Loz: Mr Wenger. William did not kick anyone..... this week, care to comment

Wenger: err. you must exqueeze me, I sink my phone ees ringing.
