Adebayor - Here We Go Again

Adebayor - Here We Go Again

The summer of 2008 saw Arsenal favorite, Emmanuel Adebayor lose the support of many Gooners with his flirtatious off-season antics. It now appears that those broken bridges will disintegrate completely in the coming months as Adebayor's agent, Stephane Courbis, claims an 'important club' have made contact with intentions of signing the leggy striker.

Courbis spent his summer last year pimping his charge out to AC Milan, and now it appears his summer holiday's aren't going to be much different in 2009.

'As of today, I have not even got evidence to speak of presumed interest from Chelsea and Manchester United, it's a given fact that Carlo Ancelotti likes the player seeing that last year he tried to sign him for Milan, although Chelsea have not contacted us.' said Ade's agent

'We have not received any calls, not from Milan or Ancelotti. Another team has contacted us, but I cannot say anything, it's a very important team. There has not been any meeting with Milan for Adebayor and lately I have not received a call on their behalf.'

'This doesn't mean Ade is for sale to resolve Arsenal's economic problems. I spoke with Arsene Wenger this morning and he told me nothing of the kind.'

Let the games begin.

In fairness, most agents say the same about their players. Essien's agent said it yesterday, Eboue's agent's quotes were sickening, "WE have been offered a new deal." WE? We? I don't think YOU were offered anything mate. Then his agent goes on to say, "if someone good comes in, he'll go." Arshavin's agent has also been a bellend. It's just that time of year. I'd like to see all agents lined up and shot really.

Wow, I'm surprised it's taken this long?! For Adebayor's agent to start trying to pimp out his player, as he knows Ade can't get another Pay rise out of The Arsenal after his client's poor goal return for the 08/09 season. So let just sit back and see how much we can get for Ade, and This time LET'S TAKE THE MONEY and jog to the bank with it!

To be fair it's not Adebayor talking here, so doesn't add anything to my hostility towards him - tha Man Utd things a bit far fetched though aint it? And he seems to speaking matter-of-factly that we ARE in financial difficulties.

Pimp my footballer! wow that would be fun, check out this Adebayor, weve added a left foot that works, workrate and some universal badge kissing. Remember all those missed chances with the old Adebayor? weve added full internet and 10 inch screen to the back off his shirt that shows nothing but his youtube clips to wipe away those nasty memories.

We've also added state of the art technology to his calves. Every time Adebayor strays offside, an electric charge will be sent through his body, causing him to jump back ten yards. Premiership linesmen have welcomed the move, claiming it should decrease their workload by about 30% next season.

Lined and up shot, yes, but only after spending some time in Gitmo. Miserable mofos. I've wondered when the Ade speculation would start, took longer than I expected. This transfer (if it happens) looks to be a sticky one. First there's Chelsea. Ancelotti was very impressed with Ade after we eliminated Milan from the CL and (supposedly) would like to bring him to Chelsea. But do Abramovich and the football staff at Chelsea share Ancelotti's admiration for Ade? I don't think they do. Have they put him off the idea? Don't think Chelsea fans want him. And Arsenal certainly don't want to sell him to a big club rival. Then there's the question of how many clubs are actually interested in him and if so, how much are they willing to pony up for him? There's less interest in him now. If the media stories are true (big assumption, yes), then AW's trying to sell Ade and bring in Bordeaux's Chamakh (who's a decent player with a great attitude but even less clinical than Ade--tho he does know the offside rule). It may be that AW won't be able to get rid of Ade and we'll be stuck paying his high wages next season.

A good piece, as ever from Samuel, even if a little far fetched in my opinion
