Ade To Stay At Arsenal During ACN

Emmanuel Adebayor will be available for Arsenal all through the time of the African Nations Cup, as the Togolese tonight failed to qualify for the finals of the tournament, with Mali beating Togo 2-0.

Goals from Freddie Kanoute and Mamadou Diallo ensured the Squirrels took the place of the Sparrow Hawks, all of which means that we will be enjoying a full quota of strikers all during the duration of the ACN.

Sad news for Ade, who I am sure was looking forward immensely to representing his country in the finals, but good news for Arsenal, as he's been a towering presence and an absolute monster up front for us this season.

The ACN's loss is our gain, Ade, so show them all what they're missing!

lol Wingston. Since Song will probably be heading to the ACN with Cameroon, that leaves us with Gallas, Senderos and probably Gilberto at CB. Hoyte and Sagna could maybe fill in, even Nordtveit but that is too risky considering the fact that we have trips to Pompey and Everton in late Dec and only Fulham away in January (so far). An injury or a ban to any of them could leave us a bit thin at the back. All a guessing game at the moment but being prepared to answer all possible (bad) situations is a must this season.

G4L, don't forget that Djourou will be returning from his loan spell at Birmingham in January, if Le Gaffer decides against extending it...

Wingston, I feel that Le Boss will look to extend Johan's loan at Brum - and work his way this season without him - something he's previously done with Hoyte and Cashley. Unless, of course, there is an injury 'crisis'.

Btw, just read a post from a Danish Gooner on another Arsenal blog, that Bendtner's statement was AGAIN blown out of proportion by the English media (a.k.a. the t*ats).

I feel bad for Ade and Togo, coz I know the ANC involves a lot of pride and passion for those nations. But this is good for Arsenal, maybe not so for Bendtner. I think we can cope without Toure, Eboue and Song. As long as we get Djourou back (I think Wenger WILL call him back as he was reluctant to send him out on loan in the 1st place), we should be fine.

Karley im positive Ivory Coast made it. Heres a link to the qualified teams. They finished first in their group.

Blue is the colour, it takes more than one player to win matches. Name another player on the Togo team - they're nobody's, and Togo was never a force until Ade burst on the scene. And he didn't play too many qualifiers because of pay issues. In any case, it's stupid reasoning: Many of your players are still struggling for qualification for the EC with their countries, does that make them crap players?

Not just the fact that Adebayor's staying with us during ACN, but also Eduardo's banging in goals consistently for Croatia. Time for Bendtner to learn the virtue of patience.
