Can Eduardo Get Past an Apology

ED SPLASH2 735502a Can Eduardo Get Past an Apology

Now that Eduardo is back, I was expecting this one. Last year when the injury happened, we got headlines galore about no apology being made. Tonight, that same headline is back.

Of course there is two sides to every story, and Martin Taylor certainly has his. He claims to have done everything to apologize after Eduardo came out of surgery, but even Taylor admits that Eduardo probably doesn’t remember it due to the drugs. Taylor then admits to doing everything possible to keep up on Eduardo’s progress. Yet, no apology…at least one Eduardo remembers.

I know it’s difficult to apologize for anything, accidents in particular. And it’s even stranger that some people want them more than others. But for Eduardo almost a year to again say that he has yet to receive a formal apology directly from Martin Taylor just doesn’t make sense to me. Does Eduardo think that he’s going to get one now?

Martin Taylor in the Daily Mail had every opportunity to say I’m sorry. Instead, Taylor just wanted to reflect on how happy he was that Eduardo was back, the death threats he received, and what would happen if the two played against each other. That tells me we probably never will read about Eduardo getting one directly from Taylor. It’s a pity, if there is anything to say ‘I’m sorry’ about, an accidental tackle that left a player out of the game he loves for a year would be it.

Harry Redknapp is placing their UEFA Cup tie against Shakhtar Donetsk at the bottom of the priority list. Getting out of the fight for relegation and staying in the Premier League is just a little more important than the extra two games the round of 32 brings.

I would like to thank Stiliyan Petrov for letting the whole world know he can’t make a decision on his own. Instead of deciding for himself without any outside influences helping to make up his mind about staying at Aston Villa, he’s going to wait and see what Gareth Barry does before deciding if he stays or goes. Talk about the ultimate cop-out.

Thank you Arsene Wenger for finally admitting Arsenal have no shot at the title this year. At least he’s also right in saying that Manchester United right now are untouchable.

The famous Colorado doctor Richard Steadman has a new patient, Jimmy Bullard. No wonder why Fulham was so quick to sell him for only five million pounds after he was starting to get a sniff around the England National Team. I guess the bigger question now for Hull is if Bullard will play again this season?

Two more footballers have been charged in the same assault case that Steven Gerrard was charged in. These players though play for Accrington Stanley.

In a suck up to fans move, Mike Ashley will cut the price of a season ticket in order to keep fans coming to St. James Park.

FC Copenhagen boss Stale Solbakken feels that all the money Manchester City have will end up destroying football. Gotta love bulletin board material.

Mark Hughes though has finally had it with City’s players with regards to their away form. Mark, don’t you think it’s a little too late for that statement?

Marseille president is saying he’ll do everything he can to resign Didier Drogba. Works for me.

I have to admit when I first read this I simply went ‘that’s it’. But that was my first reaction to when I read that Arsenal are set to offer Theo Walcott a 50,000 a week deal to keep him at the club.

And finally in a move that I can only put into the category of ‘boy Chelsea are desperate to show their fans they are moving forward’, around 5,000 people showed up for a Chelsea training session on Tuesday.

    Would you expect anything else from someone who would make such a disgusting and cowardly tackle?

    He is complete scum and if, god forbid, he ever returns to the Emirates he will get the reception he deserves as a vicious, talentless hacker.

    HE WILL ALWAYS BE THE BUTCHER OF BIRMINGHAM.

  2. Johnathan Starling says:

    Harry, I think Taylor is saying what he is lying through his teeth just to ease his conscious.

  3. Fab4 says:

    “But for Eduardo almost a year to again say that he has yet to receive a formal apology directly from Martin Taylor just doesn’t make sense to me.”

    Sun reporter: “Eduardo, did you ever get a formal apology from Martin Taylor?”

    Eduardo: “No.”

  4. Soccergoalx says:

    I think the horror tackle will still haunt him unless there is psychology treatment is given to him.

  5. FredTheRed says:

    Give over, it was clearly accidental. Anyone who thinks Taylor deliberately injured Eduardo has clearly not played the game at any level. Eduardo was too fast for him and he missed the ball.
    He should have apologised though, no excuse for that.

  6. Stephen says:

    “still haunts him”? I think scoring 2 goals in front of the Emirates crowd against Cardiff killed off any demons left from the tackle. Eduardo is a force, and it will CLEARLY take a lot more than an freak injury to scare him away from football. Go Arsenal.

  7. ArthurArseGooner says:

    accidental tackle, but eduardo deserves an apology. there is no excuse to not say sorry for the harsh tackle. it doesnt hurt to say sorry. thats all we’re asking him to do. atleast do it in the papers if not face to face. and be done with it and move on.

  8. ArthurArseGooner says:

    eduardo is a legend.

  9. Paul Bestall says:

    I agree, an apology costs nothing and would be the least Eduardo deserves.

  10. khan the gooner says:

    well what ever it was.eduardo deserves an apology.and this tackle kant break a force as strong as eduardo so face it.Arsenal is going to the top again.keep an eye on the next season
