Writer: Tristan's Unwanted Opinions
Date:Tuesday July 14 2009
Arsenal news recently had been about as existent as a coherent plotine in Transformers 2 but finally, after what seems like an age, we have some news: Emmanuel Adebayor is reportedly 'in talks' with Man City.
The big Togolese has been expressing interest in leaving for quite a while and it seems his leaving looks as inevitable as Michael Owen breaking both of his legs, shattering his pelvis and becoming injured for 4 years after getting blown over by a mild gust of wind within first few weeks of his signing for Man United.
He had been linked with AC Milan and I'm sure we'd all have rather him leave for a different league but it looks like City are more likely to match his wage demands. On the plus side, they are the side who paid £12.5 million for Wayne Bridge and actual money for Craig Bellamy thus they will probably value Ade at around £8 billion and half of Switzerland meaning good times for us.
Should he leave however, it will leave us with an incredibly flimsy strike force, with our forwards being more injury prone than a group of BMXing pensioners in a broken glass factory or Michael Owen on a particularly gusty day.
So here's hoping that Arséne brings in a new injury-immune wonder striker, preferably one who is covered in a large protective ball at all times a la Bubbleboy. However said bubble may hamper his footballing ability somewhat/completely but it's a price we may have to pay in order to field a fully fit front line each week.
That is all for now,
