Was just looking at some of the more inactive communities I'm a member of, and I realised I hadn't seen any posts for this one in awhile, which is odd because he's due back in LESS THAN A WEEK!!!

Eduardo is set to return to competitive football for Arsenal Reserves on December 16.

The Croatian striker has been sidelined since breaking his leg at Birmingham on February 23. It has been a long, hard journey but the 25-year-old has made good progress and his comeback is close.

“I believe we might see him for the first time in the Reserves on December 16 against Portsmouth,” said Arsène Wenger ahead of the game against Wigan. “After that we will just go from there but he looks very good and very sharp in training.”


Source here, and then Arsene Wenger talks about how he'll need about six weeks to return to form.

I can't wait to see him out on the pitch again, and I wish I could be there to give him the biggest cheer his eardrums could ever imagine. He's done so well to come through this so quickly.

There are encouraging news coming out of Eduardo’s camp only six weeks after that horrible injury at St Andrews in Birmingham.
Eduardo`s cousin and representative, Narley Lopes, told the Brazilian media that there are now no concerns for his career.
Eduardo’s leg is no longer in plaster and the doctors are satisfied with the recovery so far. Apparently the operation at the Birmingham hospital was performed well and Dudu’s doctors are pleased with it, Lopes said.
The return to action is now more optimistic, by about two months less than originally assessed. His return is now expected in six months time, as early as September of this year.
Lopes announced that Dudu will undergo another check-up in a few days, which will determine the direction and location of his therapy period in Brazil.
As reported on this site, Eduardo has received permission by the Arsenal medical team to continue his recuperation from his horrific injury in the more familiar surroundings of Rio De Janeiro in Brazil.
He has already visited the Brazil national team’s doctor, Jose Luiz Runco and physiotherapist, Odir de Souza at the Park Lane Hilton in London where the Brazil national team assembled ahead of their friendly game against Sweden at the Emirates.
Runco, after examining Eduardo, stated that “he wants to do the recovery in Rio de Janeiro and we have a new meeting within two weeks”.
The doctor along with physiotherapist have already drawn up a schedule of what Eduardo needs to do for his recovery in Brazil.

He says that the first part of the treatment was successful and that now he's going to Rio to see Dr. Runco (Brazil's NT and Ronaldo's doctor) and start there the second part of the treatment, and hopes that he'll be back at Arsenal soon, maybe in 9, 10 months, or a year... that the most important thing for him is to be ok.
 
 
It was good to see Eduardo with his wife in the audience tonight! He looked fresh and exceptionally good. He seemed comfortable enough, all wrapped up in a blanket.


Here's a couple of photos of him waving to the fans in appreciation, if I didn't heard wrongly from the commentators. =)

Injured striker Eduardo da Silva has paid a visit to his Arsenal team-mates at the club's London Colney training ground.
The Croatia international is facing at least nine months on the sidelines after suffering a fractured leg and dislocated ankle in a challenge by Martin Taylor in the 2-2 draw with Birmingham at St Andrews on 23rd February.
Eduardo is in the very early stages of his recovery, but took the time to visit the squad as they prepared for Saturday's clash with Middlesbrough.
Manager Arsene Wenger was delighted to see the forward and is confident he can overcome the horrific injury and make a full recovery.
The Frenchman said: "He came in and it was fantastic. He looked good. He is positive in his mind and a strong boy mentally.
"Of course we are sad to lose him for the season. But we are all pleased at the way he is dealing with it.
"Everybody who has been in this situation knows how difficult this is to take."

The first picture of the Arsenal striker since his horrific injury shows him in plaster but he still has the risk of infection which could wreck his nine-month rehabilitation.

Eduardo suffered an open fracture and dislocated ankle from Birmingham defender Martin Taylor's red-card lunge in last Saturday's 2-2 draw at St Andrew's. And Gunners physio Gary Lewin warned: "The only cause for concern is if he gets any infection because it's an open fracture.

"The crucial part is the next two weeks.

"If we can get through that without infection, and all the signs are very good, then we can start the rehab and the long road to recovery."
