Adebay-More

Adebay-More

After scoring late winners against Man Utd & Everton, Manu Adebayor has indicated that he would like to feature more in the first team.

However, unlike most who state they want more first team football, Adebayor is not moaning, infact the Togolese striker has spoken with great joy about how he relishes every start he gets for Arsenal.

The gangly centre forward knows if he trains hard and takes his opportunities with both hands then he will get his chance, but the decision is ultimately up to Arsene Wenger.

'I would like to play against Liverpool, obviously. But these are not my decisions and I accept what the manager wants.' Adebayor admits.

'I am not here to say I do or don't deserve a starting place, just to enjoy it when I do. It is my dream. Of course I want to play, everyone does, and it would be good to have a partnership with Thierry.'

'But I am from Togo and five years ago I was playing without shoes in Africa. Today I am playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world and loving it - I am just going to focus on doing my job.'

Since becoming a Gooner at the start of the year Adebayor has scored a host of 'unglamorous goals', which is arguably what Arsenal have been missing.

Adebayor also thinks Sunday's game against Liverpool is a must win if Arsenal are to harbour any hopes of winning the title for the first time since 2004.

Adebayor said: 'I would say that yes, Liverpool is a must-win game. If you hope to win the Premiership, every one is important.

'But this weekend it is even more so. Hopefully we will all enjoy it and hopefully we will win.

'We know that we are a very good side and have a lot of confidence. There are still a lot of games to the end of the season, and we will keep going right to then and hope we are back in the Premiership race.'

Earlier this season I tipped Ade for good things, and to follow that up I predict a start for Manu on Sunday, and I also predict he'll bag himself a goal.

i really like adebayor and i think he has real potential to do well at arsenal, hes tall, quick, and although he does miss chances, he scores goals, and while he has been injured arsenal have been having trouble scoring and when he is fit an playing he seems to score some important goals
