Eduardo's injury

Still haven't seen it but im gonna go out on a limb and say the death penalty is a little bit extreme!!! A lenghtly suspension and billion pound fine should be a more suitable punishment!

How about a new punishment system brought into football based on the eye for a eye, leg for a leg principle, in which Eduardo should be allowed to break Taylors leg when he recovers.

eduardo should play again he just has to look at djibril cisse for inspiration that poor bloke broke both his legs badly in a short space of time and is still playing so there is hope for eduardo :thumbsup:

have just seen the pics and your right anita they are shocking but I do think he will play again well I hope he does no-one deserves to have their career finished from a tackle like that.

Eduardo looked as if his foot was hanging on :( Kinda like the guy from the film Misery (i think thats what its called) where the nutty old woman ties him to a bed with a lump of wood between his ankles and hits his feet with a sledge hammer. That could be a good punishment for Taylor, if deaths a bit too extreme :D

Deepest sympathies to Eduardo, I've seen the replays on a well known video clip website, and it is a very poor challenge which deserves appropriate punishment.

This type of incident has been brewing all season because the season has been littered with a number of two-footed and over-the-top challenges from various players throughout the Premier League and have not been clamped down on by our dithering governing body, the FA (we all know what the FA stands for!

Maybe Martin Taylor should be banned for the same duration that Eduardo is out of the game with this injury, and if the worst case scenario occurs and Eduardo's career is ended because of this challenge then Taylor should be banned for life from professional football.

Also another thing I thought may have been discussed at the time, was to cancel the game. Given how early it was in the game (2 1/2 mins in) and how apparent the seriousness of the injury was.

I know even watching it on TV left me feeling like I don't care what the result is (from a Spurs fan who always wants the Arse to fail), so god knows how his friends & teammates were feeling after seeing it at first hand.

With the medical and rehab facilities Arsenal have to offer I don't think he'll have a problem playing again from a physical point of view but the psychological repercussions could go on for a while. Best of luck to him & I hope for a speedy recovery.

it was only a bad tackle because of what happened after there have been worse this season and will be worse but none of them will be banned for life

like alec mcleish said he is not a dirty player and did not mean to hurt eduardo

hope he gets better hope taylor gets 3 game ban and thats it :thumbsup: :c:

tms no9--call yourself a football fan?? :angry2::angry2::angry2:

that tackle was sickening!! you obviously have not seen the pics!!!

1.studs up

2.no intent to play the ball

3.contact halfway up eduardo's shin!! about a foot!! (bearing in mind the ball is along the floor!!)

4.smiling after the challenge!!!!

if he didnt mean to hurt Dudu why is his foot so high and studs up???? and why is he smiling afterwards???

he should be banned for life or suspended until the return of Dudu-which according specialists this morning is very touch and go-they beleive that his career could be over-only time will tell!!!

it does not seem fair that Taylor gets the same ban as Alliadiere for his lil b**** slap--its like giving a mass murderer the same jail sentance as shoplifter!!!

and whats worse is Mcleish defended that tackle and Taylor claiming he hardly made any contact and that Dudu's boots were to blame!!(claimed his studs got stuck in the ground as he turned!!)

Mcleish you f****** blind c***!!!! :SM_carton::SM_carton:

Get well soon Dudu

Shocking! Poor lad. I think that when a player has his leg broken in that manor the player responsible should be band for the same length of time as the injuried player takes to recover :SM_carton:

Horrific injury. It happened in the blink of an eye. Watching the game live (on TV of course), seeing the challenge (from the camera angle), you would have been unlikely to be able to guess what had happened to the extent it appears to have. Taylor is not a renowned psychopath, so my guess it is unlikely he either a ) he went deliberately in with the intention of causing that kind of injury or b ) was happy with it and smiling afterwards. I know the photograph looks like he is smirking, but it is a still picture. Everyone (I guess) has had their own photo taken at the point when your expression looks like you are pissed (when you are not). He was probably about to cringe when the photo was taken.

Whatever happens to Taylor will not change what happened, and he has to live with that tackle that looks like a career ending one to me. Everyone’s sympathy’s must now be with Eduardo in the hope he makes a full recovery. Just to be able to walk and run again will be a start! I don’t think Taylor will be bragging about it, and will take whatever punishment is handed out to him with dignity.

Get well soon Eduardo!

jesus, god forbid ever making a tackle in front of half of you lot!!

yes, it was a horrific injury, but do you really think the player went in to intentially hurt Eduardo? no, course he never, Eduardo's skill has done the bloke and his attempt at a tackle has incurred the worst thing that could happen

Yep bad break and poor tackle. I doubt that Taylor meant to hurt Eduardo deliberately. These kind of things will happen in football at any level due to the nature of the game. The problem is that due to the way that football is progressing with every little niggle or tackle either being blown for or a yellow or red card being produced the art of tackling is being lost.

Taylor was given a red card for his tackle which was the right thing in the contexts of the game, but we must remember that football is a contact sport and if that is lost then we might as well pack up the balls up and go and learn ballet.

Let's hope that Eduardo can come back from this, which every I expect every fan wishes for and sends the best to him and his family.

Fair enough the lad got injured but it wasnt as bad a tackle as you lot are making out! if his leg wasn't broken then would he have been given a red card? we have all miss timed tackles, we have just been lucky to get away with it! that tackle wasnt half as bad as some of the crazy 2 footed, off the ground knee high tackles that were flying around at the start of the season!...imagine if some of them connected!

Dont get me wrong i feel sorry for the lad but, if you play a contact sport there is always the chance it can happen...just hope it never happens to you! If that happened to a conference player would it have been given all this attention?

I would like to go with Wenger who retracted his original comments on TV by issuing a statement on MOTD last night.

Unfortunately this was one of those cases where Eduardo's skill caught out Taylor who went in for an honest tackle and was caught out by skill, nothing malicious. Let's also think what is going through Taylor's mind. A shocking incident, but it was just that, an accidental incident and well done Wenger for his retraction.

if he was caught out by Dudu's quick feet--why the hell is he lunging in studs up halfway up his shin when the ball is on the floor???? :angry2::angry2::angry2:

:c:

cant say i have im afraid :blink:

still cant beleive your attitude to that disgraceful challeng taylor shud at least be suspended until dudu returns but that sadly will never happen. :angry2::angry2:

like i have said take a look on the sites iv already quoted.

straight leg

studs up

lunging (both feet off deck) (looks like a karate side kick!)

contact made half way up dudu's shin

ball was rolling on deck-not bouncing so why did he go so high?? :angry2::angry2:

Taylor went into that challenge to hurt dudu(i hope he didnt want to break his leg on purpose anyway) just to let him know who he's dealing with

and sadly dudu has paid the full price of Taylors (probably under Mcleishes instructions to stick your boot in!)

brutal actions.

No excuses

i expect the most taylor will get is probably a 5match ban and a slap on the hand from the F.A,

bearing in mind i expect dudu will miss at least 50 games if he even returns to the game

not quite fair

as other people have said in this thread and i've just posted in the wenger thread people need to calm down,

how anybody can say that was the worse tackle in the league this season obviously have not watched much football this season. The outcome of the tackle was what was bad in my eyes he should'nt get more than the three match ban.

these are shocking bad violent challenges

point being a few of those tackles were made in the premeir league and the only person that got a long ban (to my knowledge) was thatcher.

getting fed up with saying this now but worse tackles have taken place this season and players have not received longer bans.

people really do need to take a reality check before saying he should be banned for life etc unfortunately this has not been helped by mr wenger's original statement but thankfully he has retracted this now.

yeah could'nt find any from this year looks like all the arsenal fans have flooded youtube with yesterdays tackle, just because henry did not make contact does not make it a decent tackle and its ten times worse attempt of a tackle than the one carried out by taylor yesterday

1. wenger retracted his original comments as not to get any kind of touchline ban or fine from F.A

(he stuck with those comments until gone 6pm!!-thats along time to be in heat of the moment!)

2.i have never once said henry's lunge was a decent attempt of a tackle-it was a disgraceful lunge, but like iv said already,he is a player like kuyt too that didnt have the guts to go anywhere near making CONTACT!! with the opsing player

3.yes there have also been some aweful lunges this year but again its the same point im making over and over again about not 1 having the guts to do the damage or 2. not going anywhere near opponent (just trying to scare them)

that is such a bollox statement a lot of the tackles from this season players have made contact the only reason nobody was injured was because they did'nt have their foot planted like edurado, hate to think of the damage brown would have done if giggs was planted in the first clip (don't think that was this year though but what difference does that make??)

It was not as bad as the "hang Taylor brigade" are suggesting. You've all took time to look at the pictures and the video (I couldn't stop rewinding it on M.O.T.D) and you all say about how the studs were up etc. Well that simply wouldn't have mattered if he did what he intended to do and played the ball. Unfortunately Eduardo was just too bloody quick for the guy and he ended up with this horrific injury.

To say that Taylor should be banned for life etc is just blatant overreaction. It was a tackle that was made to look bad because he was undone by good skill and quick feet. Eduardo himself has said it was a "football thing" and has the common sense to realise that sometimes these things just happen in the game.

Wenger is a fu#@ing hypocrite because he had no problem whatsoever getting his players to kick the crap out of Nani at Old Trafford the other week, behaviour that was far worse than an unfortunate tackle that resulted in an horrific injury.

How come the moaning French idiot happened to see this incident anyway?. He never seems to see anything else does he?.

Wahey! It didnt take long for the Spurs and Utd boyz to start spewing out their crap about Arsenal and Wenger did it? The fact of the matter is a talented player has been given a horrific injury from a clumsly dirty tackle which has no place in the game of football.

This has been coming all for several seasons now (countess awful tackles have been commited by players from almost every team-some more memorable then others) and rather then bitch about who's team does it the most lets have an honest discussion about it shall we?

Also Nani might have got a few kicks against Arsenal but theres a difference between playing a pyschical game as a tactic against a superior, attack-minded opposition and making horrific tackles like Taylors.

Now that a severe injury has come from such a tackle, isnt it about time a law is drawn-up or (if such a law already exists) enforced to punish all such tackles the same way (strait reds, lenghly suspensions and big fines e.g.) regardless off the receiving players injury. :c:

i saw Arsene Wengers reaction on MOTD and thought it was disgusting and my immediate thoughts were "get your own house in order, before you start critisising anybody else"

but having seen the challenge a few times now and Taylors reaction to it i agree totally with Wenger that this fella should be banned for a hell of long time. Even if the challenge had been timed correctly he would still have missed the ball as the ball was on the floor and he has made contact half way up his shin.

My personal opinion is that he has gone out to do him I dont mean to actualy break his leg but definatly to let him know he was there), How many times do you hear it in football " get in amons't them and let them know they're in a game in the 1st 5 mins"

Teams like Birmingham know they can't live with Arsenal if you just want to play football so you have to get physical with them and that is where this challenge has come from.

Also Wenger seems to have a lot of internal problems with Gallas's recent behaviour who should not even have been playing this week as he should have been banned for trying to kick Nani up in the air 3 times.

that is my humble opinion

I saw the Tackle on TV, it was bad, but I have to say I have seen many more worse tackles,

having done first aid with BT, the reason why it was broken is because Eduardo's leg was on the slant, if it had been up straight he might well not have had a broken leg, it was shear bad luck that his leg was in this position, also Taylor was not comming in at great speed as with some of these type of tackles,

I gather from reports that Taylor was very upset over the whole incident, he is not known for being a bad player,

Even Arsen Wenger changed his statement saying that he may have been a bit harsh in his comments on Taylor,

As with the rest of the comments we all hope that Eduardo makes a quick return next season,

Hammers :SM_carton_y::c: :c:

Patty - If someone challenged you like that in a game and you ended up as Eduardo has I don't think you'd see the rational side (you'd prob want him done over by you and your mates). The tackle was a bad one and at that moment in time Taylor was as dirty a player as they come! You can be a nice bloke and hit someone hard, every man has a WKD side!

Smithy, i never said it wasnt a bad tackle! If you read properly...it says it wasnt as bad a tackle as you are making out! you shouls be a journalist taking people out of context like that!

this tackle is not half as bad as Roy Keane on Alf-Inge Haaland! now there was a malicious tackle. he wasnt banned for life after that!

did any of you ever watch Kevin Boase for St.Just? i saw him put a man into the stand one saturday afternoon
