'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Adebay-ROAR

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has spoken of revenge ahead of tonight's North London Derby at Ashburton Grove.

The Togolese front-man came off the bench in the last NLD earlier this year but the team was already in the process of getting bashed and the was little Ade could do about it.

Ultimately, T*ttenham went on to win the game 5-1 whilst, despite scoring, the Arsenal striker made the headlines for different reasons.

A mixture of hot tempers and embarrassment got the better of a couple of Gooners and Ade & Nicklas Bendter ended up been pulled apart.

Whilst most Arsenal fans got over the result pretty quickly (although the WHL faithful still haven't, honestly, you'd think they'd won the Champions League) the players are still smarting from the defeat, and in particular, Adebayor.

The Striker says he wants revenge, and even had a dig at T*ttenhams penchant for bringing out a dvd for every little victory.

"That day, they played quite good football. Maybe we were not ready, they took their chances. If it was 2-1, you could have said they had luck but they won 5-1 so there`s no luck there. They deserved to win.' said Adebayor

'For them it was a big event but now we have a chance to take our revenge. We hope the result is the reverse and we can put it in the Arsenal shop on Friday."

It's nice to see the boys are taking this game seriously, we might only be playing the bottom of the league, but this game means a lot to us :)

Read this article in the Metro coming in this morning, and I'm really excited/nervous/anxious (all at once) about tonight. It hurt being at WHL in that 5-1 game. I want revenge too. I've got a feeling today is going to drag (and I won't be getting much work done)!

There is a certain atmosphere surounding tonights match that I haven't felt in a long time. It's going to be a feisty one thats for sure.
Rocky7
Navy, I was 'lucky' enough to miss that match through work commitments and have been desperate ever since to see what our first. best 11 can do when fired up against the leagues bottom club!
LondonGooner
I'm bricking it... and with Navydave on this one. I suffered that 5-1 til the end, always get nervous before a NLD, even more so at home...
shewore
Yeah, noticed that to Rocky, lets hope the spuds try and fly into some tackles and the ref cuts that s*** out straight away, nothing dangerous please!
LondonGooner
I also got a feeling that our supporters are going to step up to the plate tonight too. Damn I wish I had a ticket. Oh well, the beer is already chilled, pizzas ready to be slammed in the oven, and Gooner shirt ironed and ready to be donned. I'm really excited about this one.
Rocky7
Shirt in the oven, check! Chilled pizza, check! Ironed beer, check! What more could you need!

I've also got everything - shirt ready, home shirt-looking pyjamas ready (may wear that one instead cos it'll be late here), Arsenal accessories for my superstitions. I'll take a small nap and get up early in the morning to watch it! :)
GoonerLou

Gooner_Vin
Gotta be Oz or USA?
LondonGooner
Yeah Lou - I thought you were from London?!
Rocky7
Yeah, in Hong Kong now. Gutted that I happened to have access to tickets of the home game vs ManU in Nov and I'll watch it on TV now. Be back in London in Dec/Jan. Have to put up with the midnight games till then. :(
GoonerLou
Funny how the writer of this article refers to your home stadium as Ashburton Grove, that wouldn't be embarrassment to the fact that you sold out to an Arab Airline company would it??
