I feel Sorry for Eduardo, But Arsenal are doing the right thing

A number of reports in the press over the last 48hrs all saying the same thing.

Apparently Eduardo is heading for the Arsenal exit after being told by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger that he is not in his first-team plans for next season. I couldnt agree more with Wenger over this.

Eduarod (27) has struggled to return to his early Arsenal goalscoring form and has never looked the same player since his broken leg in 2008.

The Croatia striker has failed to score in his last 12 games and seens to have lost his pace and eye for goal.

Arsenal have recently signed striker Marouane Chamakh to partner Robin van Persie, and this has pushed Eduardo down the peaking line.

He is believed to prefer a move to a European club rather than stay in the more physically demanding Premier League.

Eduardo has been linked with a number of clubs this summer,inc Olympique Lyon & Sevilla.

in Carlos Vela it seems Arsenal have the perfect replacement for Eduardo “if” he is on his way out. I feel sorry for Eduardo but Arsenal are not a charity and are doing the right thing.

    Its sad to see him go as he’s a likeable character and a great player before the injury but your right in what ya say, since the leg break he’s not the same player so its better to sell him maybe rosicky might fall into the same bracket

    Another victory for the English pub player, that only know how to kick instead of play. Never been the same player since the attack yes attack because that’s what it was. I hope the day comes when we are finally rid of the northern pub players. Good luck Eduado!

    Do we really have to sell? Why not loan him out to a Birmingham or Bolton or Newcastle. SO he gets his steel back and come back next season with a bang. All he needs is someone to believe in him again. I still rate him over Bendtner

    I couldn’t agreee more. It will be sad to see Eduardo go – he and Arsenal have been through a lot together. But he hasn’t really been the same player since his injury and it’s now time to say goodbye. I hope he does well wherever he decides to go next. (Unless it’s Tottenham.)

    It’s actually upsetting – i feel for Eduardo. He had so many goals in him and was easily the best finisher at the club, if there was a chance you knew he would take it.
    I think back to West Ham at home when he scored after 2 minutes (i think) when he chested a cross down and volleyed it in as if it was the easiest thing on earth.
    He was bang on form and we were bang on form until that horrific leg break. Everyone feared he may never play again and if he did manage to return there was that fear he would never be the sam again.

    Goal on his return were enough to bring tars to the eyes but the injuries that have come since the injry and as a direct result of the injury, something like 13 muscle strains, have really hampered him. The fear is there which is totally understandable especially in a league where cloggers are praised higher than skilled players.

    Gutted that he hasn’t been able to get back to where he was. IF he is to go then i wish him all the luck in the world, give thanks and hope that the goals start flowing for him and he can be happy on the field again.

    How good a player was he before he broke his leg?I would say-promising but nothing more.If he’s leaving and Wenger is able to find any interested parties-could he also ask them if they similarly require:-
    Almunia-Not a good enough as a Ist choice top 10 Premier League Goalkeeper
    Fabianski-A complete liability
    Denilson-Can only pass sideways over a distance of 10 feet and never tracks back properly
    Rosicky-Has lost his quickness of thought and dynamism on ball following a series of injuries
    Diaby-Clumsy headless chicken who only plays the game for 30 minutes at a time
    Bentner-A Legend in his own mind!
    Sagna-Following a great opening season his positional sense is now a liability and he can’t cross a ball to save his life (World Cup 3 matches and nota decent cross in any!)
    Watching England capitulate against Germany was similar in so many ways to Arsenal performances which marked the end of this last season.The side has a difficult start to this Season and unless there are major re-inforcements we will have to suffer more of the same-After all, games against the likes of Birmingham,Wigan,and Blackburn were meant to have given Arsenal an easy run-in!!

    18 goals out of 29 internationals. 83 goals off 123 appearances for Zagreb. These are the FACTS. (Van Persie scored 19 out of 48 international appearances in a better team..Don’t even ask about Bendtners return rate..) You would be very hard pushed to match that ANYWHERE. This lad has never been given a proper run in the side (before or after his injury) and to all you mugs who say he’s scared.. he does not look scared to me. Do you actually go to the games or watch them? Have you seen him shirk a challeng?. This boy could have been the next Henry that you keep blabbing on about. But he was never given a run in the side. So we keep the lummox Bendtner and get rid of a goal machine who will come good again with a proper run in a decent side once the niggling injuries go. Disgrace. Absolute disgrace. So Joel, he was a promising player, nothing more??? He was a phenomenon in any side that had confidence in him and gave him a run in the side. Mugs.

    I afraid the same fate may befall Ramsey. It is both psychologicaal as well as physical. Many palyers are not the same after such aterribleinjury. It affects their entire career. Thes type of tackles are definitely career ending as even after a lengthy recovery, the victim continues to suffer from other injuries. This affects their confidence and untimately their future. Look at Diaby, he was out for about two seasons before playing quite well last year; but,there again as some of you pointed out, he has not fulfiled his enormous potential. I hope ramsey will be back not the coming season but, the following one. DAMN.

    Bendtner will surprise all you knockers next year.. hes only 21 for f**** sake. He still has scored around 30 goals on limited opportunities.

    Everyone is saying bendtner is shit!! He is when you compare him to the world elites. But in my book there is only about 10 elites in that position.
    The drogbas, tevez’s and villa’s. But these players are god amongst men. Bendtner is a very good player though. But you cannot compare him with others. When you do that you will always find bad things to say. Nicklas Bendtner is the danish footballer of the year for christ sake.

    BTW Drogba was not even at bendtners level at 21.

    As for eduardo. It is a shame this has happened. But eduardo can still play. It will be good for him to play in another less violent league. Injuries like this can happen in any league though LESS likely. Its Dean ashton i REALLY feel sorry for. He started small and worked his way up, teams like United and even us were quielty looking at him. He got promoted into the england team only to get injured so badly in training doctors said he could never play again.
