Adebayor Blasts Quit Threat Rumours

Arsenal goal machine, Emmanuel Adebayor has blasted speculation that he has threatened to quit the Gunners if he didn't get a massive pay increase.

The media steamroller has been printing all sorts of juicy sounding crap after Flamini and apparently now Hleb quit the North London outfit as they eagerly await the demise of this great club.

The latest load of tosh is the story of our goal getting Togan threatening to leave the club unless his wages matched those of the more wealthy players in the Premier League.

'I am very happy here. Reports which suggest I have threatened to quit are rubbish. I love the club and the fans.' said the leggy striker.

'We have a great set of players here with a fantastic team spirit. We have had a good season but next season we want to go one better by winning a trophy.'

Some may question the abilities of Adebayor, but there is no questioning the guys ethics and enthusiasm for the club.

Maybe that's because he has his own song :)

It laughed when i read this origianally. IT didnt even sound like it had half an ounce of truth. I might start some rumours myself, like Etoo joining Spurs.

I laughed*
paul_ownz
Anyone would think we're having a car boot sale at the Emirates. I'm glad he came out straight away, it nips it in the bud straight away! Well done Ade
navydave
Too right Dave .... and this only really goes to show that Hleb is actually buggering off!!
Rocky7
Your right R7, Hleb's silence is deafening. If he was going to stay, he would have spoke out at the same time as Ade!
navydave
I think now might be a good time to replace Hleb with someone who wants to stay at the club, and also shoots more than once a match.
Arsenal_Grouch
I could maybe understand Hleb staying silent if it were just paper talk, but if you're agent makes such massive claims that are untrue, then you're gunna say something.
Rocky7
Echo the feeling Dave, player hears rumor -> issues short statement rubbishing rumor -> Tabloid idiocy toward Arsenal highlighted, job done. Top marks Ade.
VanPersie11
If you are cynical then maybe Arsenal fed the story to the rumour people and tabloids and then have Ade coming out to say its rubbish. This would make the fans feel more settled after a week of cr*p. Show a bit of unity etc.
paul_ownz
I think arseblogger is right and this story was a Dein/Red&White planted story because the same article also has this quote: "All that could be solved if the club were to accept the help of Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov, but chairman Peter Hill-Wood and director Danny Fiszman say no." This sounds so blatantly a deliberate plant.

I have read a few articles of our supposed demise this season.. I mean, last year when Henry left everybody said that we'd finish 5th, that we were the weakest among the top 4 and bla bla bla.. Today, everyone is talking as if we have under achieved.. Isn't the process of turning a young team into a winning team a time consuming one? I'm baffled at the madness of the press in the UK.. absolutely astonished.
arsenalrulz4ever
And yeah, Ade is not leaving, I mean some of these tabloids are printing stories to fill up space I guess.. I saw something about Gerrard going to Inter Milan.. so basically tomorrow you can expect something about Rooney going to Real Madrid or something.. its crazy, seriously.
arsenalrulz4ever
On another subject entirely, don't you just love how Wigan made sure their pitch was in good shape just for Man United???
jaelle
Love Ade.he can say hes stayin'..Hleb cant..hmmmmmmm??!!
ajwb
It wouldnt be a bad thing if he did leave. He is a great player but you could 20 mil out of him. Use it and go and buy an out and out scorer like Torres or Drogba
redandwhitestripemad
arsenalrulz4ever.....ye are the weakest of top 4 u dimwit
123spurs
arsenalrulz4ever....... spurs are tryin the same we also have young players an nned time to jel.......2 5th but a bad one this year but still won a cup so next season we will be higher in table
123spurs

G4L

123spurs
or cry baby gallas..concentrate on ur own team
123spurs
jose = the special ramos = the perfect one wenger= trohpless again one
123spurs
wenger has already won trophies with arsenal during his time with us so i dont really get your question. how long before we can expect a new manager or another cup for ye? another 20 odd years? will Ramos be speaking english at that stage? is it true uefa is starting a new european super league for mid table teams? perhaps ye can win that to go with yer lonely tin cup!
Unwell
we are concentrating on our own team.. if you look at the top of this page you will clearly see "Vital Arsenal".. bless! he thinks hes on vital spuds!
Unwell
"or cry baby gallas..concentrate on ur own team" -- 123spurs that's from the spuddie doofus who spends all his time on an Arsenal forum concentrating so much of his time talking about Arsenal players--another spuddie amoeba who's too bored with his own team that he has to come over here and rant about our players and our team--how much time do you spend reading about Arsenal, 123spuddieboy? Poor spuddie, desperate for some quality football to occupy his time with, so he comes over here.
jaelle
"ramos= the perfect one".. gets beaten 4-1 by newcastle at home..hahaha, funny i don see any newcastle supporters with the nickname 4-1.. oh, thats bcoz beating spurs is not too tough a task.
McGooner
123s, concentrate on our own team? last time i checked this was vital arsenal and here are you debating...errr screw it. Anyone care to help the boy here?
G4L
I dunno how you guys can be bothered arguing with someone who's grasp of the English language is as poor as his knowledge of football.
Rocky7
What does the 1-2-3 stand for? Number of times Spuds have won the league? oh wait.............
iceman10
i think 123 stands for the last 3 years of arsenal winning jack
chinaman123
123s - i suppose you have nothing to discuss on your side? or is it just the spurs fans who love to come here and try to say something witty? you guys always end up talking too soon.. and end up winning the .. Carling Cup.. winning something after?? 16 years?? wow.. great achievement..!
arsenalrulz4ever
mc gooner.....arse drawing with middles brum wigan..shall i go on....an ye were lucky to draw...ye have to lower ur self to name caling what does 123 stand for how childish an sad thast best ye come up with.....there arse fans on our site. aswelll.............g4l ....bent waste of money maybe dose reyas ring a bell ye have so shot memories, at least ouyr trophy cabinat aint empty
123spurs
where yer sense of humour guys it all fun at end of day. ye take thing to serious mcgooner. yedo play grat footable but that all yer remerbered for nothing esle best football team for winning noting an there no trophy for that.
123spurs
reyes was foolish,bent is rubbish,spot the difference...reyes helped us become undefeated,you know win the league without losing a game,there is a big difference to being a bit part player in a mickey mouse cup win...and scoring important goals and making assists to win the league,but you wouldnt know that would you
fran merida
where is super rayas now if he was any good he got kicked kicked out of it by gary nev...plus bent is rubbish....ok herny first season rubbish.....? bend with charlton top english scorer now looks at these facts, you cud sayrvo is rubbish at mo. mickey mouse cup yes? but why wud wenger risk fab ( brough on as a sub) plus adey plus others if it was a mickey mouse cup.....its mickey mouse to fans ....but to players its a cup game an nobosy wants to loose, chelsea in final ful team....all im sayin its better then nothing.
123spurs
ment rvp
123spurs
wenger played fab because denilson went off injured. arsenal needed a creative player to fill the gap. i love how your memory disappears when you say "best football team for winning noting" when we have won at a guess 7 trophies in the last 10 years and been involved in a champions league final and the title race almost every year. your clubs highest finish in 10 years is 5th. you have one cup which to be honest no top four teams fans would be making that much noise about if we did win it. your only half decent player is buggering off and you have spent a ton of cash only to see your form drop! why you are here making as much noise as you are is a complete mystery to me!
Unwell
as for your opinions of henry being rubbish in his first season shows your complete ignorance of the player. he didnt score 30+ goals his first season but he did score and i am betting he scored more than bent has in his first season! and when bent was "top english scorer" who exactly was above him?
Unwell
herny started every game bent isa sub...to get real pls
123spurs
ya last 3 years ye could not win league fin 3rd or 4th ye 4th best team in league admit ye had yer time annow most arase fans say its time for change
123spurs
get real? im afraid you made the comment about henry being rubbish in his first season. henry did not start every game in fact he started 31 premiership games and in that year he scored 17 premiership goals and overall 26 goals in all competitions. you keep going back to the fact that arsenal have not won anything in 3 years. thats great news but the fact still remains that we are a more successful team then spurs. surely even the blindest spurs fan can concede that is true. go and look at the premiership table and tell me where arsenal are on it? its not 4th so i dont see how arsenal are 4th best in the league. your complete lack of understanding of simple facts is astounding. i genuinely wonder how you can manage to find the on switch on that pc you are sitting at!
Unwell
well bent hasnt started 31 more like single figures so u cant really judge an compare, i agree arse are more sucessful i never said i dint but what im sayin is that for last 4 years ye have a title winning team an have failed to do so jus like liverpool, an ur stupifd exise is out team is young young young.....barce no trphies in two years by e bye ricard( speling) now most fans wants wenger to leave.
123spurs
good grief. i dont know where you read your information on arsenal or its fans but you are completely wrong on almost every point you make. my head hurts from trying to reason with you. i would have more luck having a well thought out and structured conversation with the chair im sitting on.
Unwell
hey slow joe. ur dummer then i thought u jus dont understand the diff......ur def trapped in wenger weinger mood....lol
123spurs
ur def feelin unwell unwell..go get some sleep
123spurs
hey hey...there is no point talking to a spud...thats why its a spud...if its any better than a spud..it wouldnt be sitting mid table when at the start of the season they claimed "THIS IS THE YEAR WHEN WE TAKE OVER ARSENAL" woo well done..you beat us to winning the tin cup! are you happy? enjoy the carling cup you tool....carling is a disgrace of a beer...thats why no one cares..now if it was called guiness cup..that would be a different story..
gooner_till_i_die
gooner sour grapes
