Hill-Wood: Adebayor Going Nowhere

Despite the News Of The World printing alleged quotes from Arsene Wenger claiming we're a selling club, Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood says the Gunners have no intention of selling Adebayor.

Much has been made of the ongoing Ade saga, but it appears Wenger is only ready to sell the striker if a really BIG offer comes in.

PHW though, says he's going nowhere.'We want him (Adebayor) to stay,'

'Adebayor still has a long time left on his contract and we have absolutely no intention of releasing him from that contract.'

He did however, concede he expects Alex Hleb to leave the Grove in the summer.

'Hleb has made it clear he wants to go, I think maybe he will go.'

Hardly a surprise now is it?

There seems to be a bit of a transfer logjam at the moment. All centred around Barcelona. They need to be sure they can offload players before bringing more in. As Laporta has narrowly survived his vote of confidence maybe that logjam will start to break now. Once one goes down then others will fall into place.
So its apparent now that the high asking price for Ade is to prevent him from leaving, which is good, despite his dire comments to NOTW.
This is just speculation, but I actually thinks Wenger has slapped a massive transfer fee on Adebayor half thinking it will ward off potential buyers, but if someone is stupid enough to pay that sum then he's laughing all the way to the bank.
If I were in a position to choose 3 players to leave in transfers this close season, then Flamini would still be here and Eboue, Hleb and Adebayor would be gone. Let's hope that some club will be stupid enough to pay the asking price for Adebayor (our one season wonder). Even if he were to have more good seasons, a 35m. transfer fee is too good to refuse.
If they dont wnat to stay at arsenal, we should let them go, it wont help for team spirit at the start of the season and we dont need to players stroping about flirting with other clubs, id rather have two players who want to play for arsenal than two who want to leave!
Maybe the incident with Bendtner at WHL was an indication to Ade's personality(thinking hes better than everyone else).
I have to point out this article because I'm not sure I've ever read one that I agree with so completely,17033,8746_3788645,00.html

I am sure I have read things I agree with as much or more but I really can't recall one just now. That's a great piece - and sound advice. I stopped buying newspapers sometime back but the 'news' is always in front of you.
Me too, LD, me too
i would like someone to come out with wenger never said any of that rubbish in NOTW, i mean come on who believes that rubbish?
That's a good article LD pointed out... John Nichol is a good read and he doesnt pull too many punches either. His concluding statement of 'ignore the bluster and que sera sera' is the right way to survive the speculation flood, but there's no escaping the fact that each year it gets worse, which corresponds to the increasingly stupid sums of money talked about. Surviving the speculation is one thing but theres no escaping the game getting ruined by money. Its quite depressing to watch someone like Adebayor who started playing for us with a smile and some innocence, ending up behaving in this way... I'm not against him putting up a fight for better pay, but it's just the way they go about it - the media spinning and threats - which are totally classless. Really, he can sod off as far as I'm concerned... and I'll be asking Rocky for an ID change!
lol poor Andy.. like Rocky himself, you'd better use a legend for an ID! Nowadays you can't be sure about any player - although I truly believe Clichy, Kolo, Almunia and Sagna won't become ********s like Ade/Hleb/Cashley/Ronaldo.
Lou the Gunneress
I want to change my ID aswell.
LD - you haven't fallen out with a lady called Grace recently have you? I just wondered that's all.
Bergkamp was a Myth"If the women tennis players now have the same money as the men, shouldn't our Arsenal women be on 55,000 a week?"
Bergkamp was a Myth
I've fallen out with a lot of women recently! None called Grace. But I know what you're getting at, you'll see none of my responses have been gender specific. I think BWAM might be Sierra Milton.

It could be a sort of 'Boy named Sue' scenario maybe?
At an old saloon on a street of mud, There at a table, dealing stud, Sat the dirty, mangy dog that named me "Sue."
Little Dutch
Or to....Paul Johnson was well known in the Arsenal firm in the 1970s and ended up sitting on the comes Denton didn't?
Bergkamp was a Myth
Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid, But the meanest thing that he ever did was before he left, he went and named me "Sue"
Listen chaps..I could tell you many a story about our club over the years that you would never know...just humour me and I'll let you know them all in my own time :-D
Bergkamp was a Myth
To be honest BWAM, based on what I have heard from you so far, I couldn't be arsed.
Oh Lighten up Amos!...We're gonna win the League next year! :-D
Bergkamp was a Myth
"Listen chaps..I could tell you many a story about our club over the years that you would never know...just humour me and I'll let you know them all in my own time :-D" Nah, I grew out of jackanory some time ago. Where I live there are enough Danny Dyer types telling me how they "*****ted some geezers before avin it away on me toes, like" and about various "naughty manors" they might have visited. Sometmes it's possible to be a **** before snapping out of it and remembering yourself. Then, of course, some people just are ****s. It's harder for them to stop, ain't that right me old china?
Little Dutch
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red and some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head, I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."
The music was very nice, the shampoo flowed all night...brought a tear to my eye...beginning to whell up now...I'm going to bed now...goodnight to my new friends....xxxxxxxx
Bergkamp was a Myth
Feeling a bit emotional eh? Does that happen every month?
It used to but I've passed that age now thank god...hey Amos where's my lovely picture of Highbury gone?
Bergkamp was a Myth
What picture was that BWAM? Hormones giving you gip?
This was my sadly rubble...very sad, very sad, sniffle sniffle.... Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Bergkamp was a Myth
I wonder how long are we going to wait for the writing staff to put up the latest story of one Rafael Van Der Vaart talking about... you know.
