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

Ade Blames Foreign Gooners For Feeling Unloved

An extremely boring international break, coupled with a whole host of PC related problems has made for a notable lack of activity around Vital Arsenal and indeed the interweb on the whole. But today proper football resumes, and resumes with a bang.

After the disappointment of losing a game at Old Trafford after absolutely dominating United in the field, a chance for redemption arrives in the form of a trip to Man City.

This fixture has been handed a bit of extra fire over recent months, with City apparently becoming heirs to a place in the big four after becoming 'the richest club in the world', and better still the addition of Arsenal legend, Kolo Toure and the not-so legendary Emmanuel Adebayor.

We all knew that when this fixture arrived that there would be a lot of talk from both parties, and most of it predictable. The backing of his former charges from Arsene Wenger, the backing of his new charges from Mark Hughes, and of course, the ridiculous amount of testis from Adebayor.

We all know the facts of the last 18 months that led to the departure so there's no need to rake over old ground, though Ade himself seems content to keep the history in the present. However his latest comments have a hint of 'raving lunatic' about them.

'Arsenal have a lot of fans who are not fans, what is good is that the City fans truly love you.' said Adebayor

"Arsenal have fans from America and Jamaica. Today they are Arsenal fans, tomorrow they will be Liverpool fans and after tomorrow they will be Manchester United fans."

'Arsenal forced me out, I told Arsène, 'No matter what you do, I will not leave the club.` Arsène told me, 'You have to leave because financially we are very bad.` That makes it more painful. Arsène knows I didn`t leave for money. Enjoying my football is more important to me than money."

The fact that Adebayor is looking to blame his troubles on gooners who live abroad, 99% of whom would not have been in attendance of the games where the City Striker was boo'ed, just goes to show the intellect of this man who seems to believe that he has done no wrong in this whole saga.

The City fans may love him now, but there was a time he was loved at Arsenal, his name sung more than any other, yet the actions of a badly advised player brought all that to an end.

Arsenal may have a lot of fair-weather fans, but that is not exclusive to our club, in fact it exists at every single club, and the more success you have, the more of these people inhabit your club. So if it's to be believed that Man City are to break into the big four to take the place of Arsenal as a champions league team, then Adebayor has jumped out of the frying pan, and into the fire.

So Ade claims he went because Arsenal needed the money and it was a benevolent act on his part to help us out? Wenger, while defending Ade to some extent, of course tells it differently "If you consider the Premier League, you cannot say we are one of the bottom clubs financially. We have very fair financial potential." The love that Ade feels from Citeh supporters is still in its first flush of course. Interesting to see how long the honeymoon lasts.

Typical bull***** from a player who has his head stuck up his arse. The levels of delusion that he's achieved at such an age are quite incredible.

Such an insecure, love me love me love me, pathetic excuse of a "man" Zero class, village mentality, and thick as a barrel of 6 day old dog ****e. He never got over the fracas he had in the airport with that top bloke who slated him face to face as the lazy arrogant cock he is. To his feeble mind that was all Arsenal fans that day, which ironically it now is and it's a situation entirely of his own making.

Sounds to me like a small-minded man who keeps bitching bitterly about his ex who dumped him.
GoonerLou
Bendtner to score anyone? I hope someone showed him some of those reports, he'll play a blinder today!
GoonerLou
And as an American gooner, I'd like to tell Ade -- I'm Arsenal til I die! So F off you money-grubbing *****er!

I would like to take full responsibilty for Ade's departure

I get the America part because even seemingly intelligent hacks and journos, never mind fans, think that only baseball and American football-loving fans with zero understanding of "soccer" reside in the US. However, I don't get the Jamaica bit. I was born in Jamaica; lived in London for over two decades, and now reside in the US where I completed my training. Ordinarily I would be insulted by this comment but... then... again, it is Ade we are talking about.

there is absolutely no way that Wenger would tell a player he had to leave because we were in a poor position financially. Clearly made up, either by him or whichever journo.

adeb, has some neck, who does he think he is, players like that a are a disgrace to clubs, who makes them we are they are, hint of extra money an there off, he had one good season an hes ego rises to extreme.

Maybe Ade was disappointed not to receive massive booing from the travelling Gooners who're too busy being mad with the circumstances/performances on the pitch. So much so that he felt he had to poke fire by fouling his former teammates and insulting his former fans to prove that he was right in saying that Arsenal treated him badly. A bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy by the egotistical scumbag.
GoonerLou
Personally, I blame the fact that he's a massive ****
Gunnerman
Sorry, I meant to say the fact he's a massive C*UN*T

Hahahah how funny for Man City to say this: 'The Blues striker had been subjected to plenty of verbal abuse from his former followers at Arsenal before his second half strike led to a sprint down the length of the pitch and a slide in front of City fans close to where the away contingent were housed.' And then Hughes explained, 'We just have to understand that he is an emotional guy and he wanted to share the moment with the fans in the corner with whom he has a special affinity. It is the same area that the Arsenal fans were in so there is the potential for people to see it as the wrong thing to do. We recognise that and so does Ade.' Maybe Ade's girlfriend was sitting in the home section next to the away contingent? lol http://www.mcfc.co.uk/News/Team-news/2009/September/Hughes-says-cut-Ade-some-slack
GoonerLou
So Ade left Arsenal because of me!! yay!! All of you need to thank us, "fair weather" fans. What a complete madherchod and pundachimone.
Sajit
