Take It One Game At A Time, Says Ade

Take It One Game At A Time, Says Ade

The gint thorn in Tottenham's side that is Manu Adebayor says that Arsenal are taking things one game at a time, rather than thinking about winning titles.

Arsenal had been written off by rival fans and pundits alike after the departure of Thierry Henry to Barcelona.

But Arsenal have quickly shown these so called 'experts' that one man really doesn't make a team. The Gunners have been playing well this season, and winning games that last season they would not have.

Despite the team clearly not playing to their full potential, 4 wins and 1 draw in 5 games has seen Arsenal rise to the top of the Premiership.

Despite all this, Adebayor insists that the team are taking each game as it comes: 'We are very happy and we are very confident at the moment, but it is now about keeping it going,' Adebayor said to Arsenal.com.

'Every game we play they call it a test. We feel that as well, but the most important thing is taking it one game at a time.

'We are showing maturity now, every player knows how to play for 90 minutes. But we don't want to speak about the title, we just want to keep on going.


'We are learning and we are playing good football. If we carry on like that we'll see where we are at the end of the season.'


Adebayor might not have his eyes on the title, but I'm sure I'm not the only Gooner thinking about it, am I?

Well it's good he's got his feet on the ground, but I firmly believe we can win it. I wasn't over-confident at the beginning but it was at the back of my mind. The likes of Cesc, Rosicky, Toure and Ade and RvP to some extent have stepped up to the plate and the new boys have settled in really well too. The defence is pretty solid at the mo, and that's without Gallas. It can only get better and hopefully the pundits on MOTD etc can eat their words... or come up with a lame excuse why Chelsea/United didn't win it.

Derby, West Ham, Sunderland and Bolton next. If we keep our ocus and win those four amidst the Seville, Newcastle and Bucharest games then we can hopefully get our young team making winning into a habbit. Then, who knows?....

It's far too early to seriously be contemplating the title but given the atmosphere in the club pre-season with the dismay amongst some supporters about the lack of transfer spending, board room shenanigans and departure of players we have at least shown that writing our chances off, as many had done, was every bit as premature.

We always do best when we are the "underdogs" As soon as the media started writing us of for even a 4th place spot I had a feeling this would be the season when things really started to come together again.....aint gonna start making wild predictions, but I'm quietly confident we'll be in for a good shout, and we're already suprising alot of the so-called experts....

Too early in the season to start talking about the title, but early enough to consider Arsenal one of the title contenders. The tough challenges all lie ahead, especially in December, and during the ANC in Jan-Feb.

I think Chelsea will be harder hit during the african nations. Drogba, Essien, Kalou, Mikel - especially the first two are basically their main playmakers and goalscorers. We have to deal with Toure, Eboue, and Ade leaving, but have pretty decent cover in Sagna, Hoyte, Djourou back from loan etc. the only bad thing would be if Gallas isn't fit. Liverpool and Manure are pretty much unaffected. I don't know why they can't have it at the same time as Euro08. We'll play Fulham, Newcastle, Man City and Blackburn in the league during that time. Not exactly easy fixtures.
