Eduardo da Silva 2009/2010

After a lengthy recovery from a leg break, and a few hamstring problems, Eduardo da Silva finally made his full comeback from injury at the start of the 09/10 season.

Unfortunately he looked a shadow of his former clinical self, missing dozens of easy chances and relying on some massive strokes of luck to score.

However there was an upside to his season - the loss of pace and finishing skills forced him to adapt his game to become more of a provider for others, a role he seemed to do a decent job in as this video demonstrates.

The highlight of his season was scoring the winning goal in the FA Cup 3rd round with a world class header, a brief reminder of the predatory instincts within.
