Are You Happy With Adebayor Transfer?

Are You Happy With Adebayor Transfer?

Unconfirmed reports are littering the interweb that Emmanuel Adebayor has been granted a work permit paving the way for a transfer from Arsenal to Man City.

Rumours are gathering pace that a swift deal has been struck to enable Arsenal's leggy forward to make the switch from North London to Manchester, and the silence from Arsenal is deafening, especially when you consider the club have made a big point of getting other players to quash other rumours as swiftly as they materialise.

So with these new 'facts' (and I use that term in it's loosest possible sense) in mind, the latest poll at Vital Arsenal asks you if you'll be happy with the deal, distraught or just plain indifferent.

Only if we use the funds to bring in one or two new signings. I know it won't happen, but I'd love to get the Flamster back.

im the the type that is exited by him leaving. adebayor is the type of player that if our team is playing great then adebayor will score, if arsenal are not playing the free flowing game then he wont score. this coming season we will be playing great given that our whole squad is back, if adebayor stayed with arsenal then he would atleast score 20 goals of which i dont think that this guy chamakh will give us those 20+ goals. i will be fine if we sell adebayor and we some like huntelaar, higuain, or goran pandev guys that guaranteed they will score more that 15+ premiership goals on their first english season. all in all i think its a good thing that ade"paymemore"bayor is leaving but some one has to come in that will score those goals that adebayore would have scored.

personally, i think it is for the best, wouldn't you rather have a player who is committed to the club ? However, please correct me if im wrong, i believe adebayor gives us another dimension in attack and would be hard to replace. I have not seen much of huntelaar and chamakh, but will they be able to give us the same? i guess in the end, arsene knows!
15/07/2009 22:20:00
Happy? No, not really but I do believe it is for the best. 07/08 Adebayor was a monster. The man ran his legs off and left his heart on the field week in and week out. For that I overlooked his less than stellar first touch and his affair with the linesmen. 08/09 Adebayor walked or at best trotted around the field with little more than a smirk to show for his work. He certainly had a decent scoring ratio but the effort just wasn't there anymore. Hopefully Wenger brings in a player or two who can genuinely give their all and improve the squad. In truth, I wasn't counting on much contribution from him this year even if he stayed so this is probably a good thing.

He had enormous potential and fulfilled that for one season. But you have to say that the mark of a true champion is never to think you're the big I am until you've done it consistently season after season. This guy started thinking he was a cross between Ronaldo/Henry/Robinho after having one good season. This will be a fantastic piece of business by Arsene - again. I'd be flabbergasted if he doesn't invest in 2 players once Ade goes.
15/07/2009 22:34:00
He's a useful player, but has become arrogant and lazy. Whether or not I'm happy with the transfer will depend on what we end up doing with the money. I think it will work out well for us but time will tell.
15/07/2009 22:59:00
I am quite unhappy about this Adebayor transfer story. He has been an important player for us but most fans have been unable to forgive his antics of last summer. I believe this lack of support had a very negative effect on his output all through last season. I wish he would stay and fight to regain the fans' support once more. But I doubt very much that will happen now. My only hope now is that we do not regret this sale down the road. I really hate to see Ade go.

I also hate to see him go but you can't blame it on the fans. RvP caught a lot of criticism for his effort and attitude before really buckling down and showing us all what he's about. Count him forgiven. Bendtner has been the target of brutal criticism for everything from effort to ability, even his ability to hold his liquor, but the boy buckled down and busted his ass to show he has the DESIRE to earn his place in the red and white. Most supporters seem to be behind him, at least so far as they WANT him to succeed. Eboue has quite rightfully been the target for a lot of abuse. He put his head down and worked for the team and has somehow come out of it, if not forgiven then certainly an amusingly acceptable squad player. Adebayor flat out showed no desire to be an Arsenal player in 08/09. buh-bye.

as a city fan I am somewhat concerned at this transfer, not from the arsenal point of view, but from the point of view that is "where the bloody ell is he gonna play with 9 other strikers on the books" i think this is purely a token signing from our arabs, we were after eto'o (african player of the year 3 years running in the early 2000's) and now were after the next best thing (current african footballer of the year) as I guess the arabs didnt see drogba as a viable option. anyways, good to see van persie signing a contract for you guys (would have preffered him in a city shirt) cos that guy is class and didnt want him to go abroad like some of the other european stars making their name in the prem. keep up the good work, and lets hope for a city arsenal 1-2 in the league this year cos I dont like chelski, I obviously hate man yooo and mancs hate scousers anyway sothat rules out liverpool
