Adebayor: We Are Here To Achieve *VIDEO*

On Saturday Manchester City clinched the signing of Emmanuel Adebayor on a five-year contract.

The Togo international is reported to have made the switch from Arsenal to Eastlands in a £25m deal and joins the likes of Barry, Carlos Tevez and Roque Santa-Cruz in Mark Hughes' Champions League challenging squad.

'I am very happy, very pleased to be here,' said the powerful 25-year-old striker, 'I signed for Manchester City because I think they are a team that needs players like this.

'We are here to achieve, we will take it from here and see what we can do. I have to fight for this club now, show that I want to bring trophies to this club.

'This season I would love for us to be in the top four. We know it is not going to be easy.

'I want to be part of a club that is aiming to be one of the biggest in the world... The manager and chairman have said that maybe in one or two years Man City could be one of the best teams in the world.

Lets be honest, Arsenal fans might not like him but he was their second best player ( behind Van persie) anyone who tells me Fabregas is world class is a liar. OK he may have caused problems at at Arsenal but there is absolutely no reason to think he would do it again here, we are a different club. Would you not stir up trouble if your manager was turning you into a selling club?

I have to say I was impressed with the Manu Interview, said all the right words in the right places.

butty, Adebayor honestly would not have made our first team next season. Eduardo and van Persie would be the two strikers, and Bendtner improved to a level near Adebayor's so they would battle it out for a place on the bench. And you are just being plain stupid thinking that Fabregas is not world class, you just don't watch enough football. Also are you forgetting Arshavin? He is our best player, the best player in the league and behind Messi and Ronaldo as the best player in the world.

You keep saying that Tom and evetually even you'll believe it. Adebayor is no longer your problem, but I suspect the majority of gooners fans wish he still was.

No. I am possibly Adebayor's biggest fan. I made a video on youtube to stick up for the guy after his 30 goal season ( ) but he has been truly terrible this season on and off it.

Ade is a poor mans Drogba. Fabregas IS world class and if you cant see that at Cit£h then you will still continue to sign mediocre players. Ade has the ability to be a good player but is FAR to inconsistent and for the record Arsenal fans wanted him out well before Cit£h showed up so no point in trying to get under their skin! Delighted he went to u lot instead of us. Ten strikers now is it?? lol

I'd say I watched more football than most Tom, i've got one of those dodgy satellites dishes ;) Think you might be over-hyping Arshavin slightly, not saying he's not world class but I can name a few who are better than him. Just can't agree over Fabregas though, every time i've seen him in a big match recently he's gone missing. You're entitled to you're opinion though.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but many have stupid opinions. And I would like you to name those players who are better than him if you can be bothered.

Kaka, Gerrard, Torres, David Villa, Iniesta, Eto'o, to name a few...

I personally rate Iniesta over Arshavin, Ronaldo and Messi. Xavi's somewhere up there too, and is Torres is almost. Kaka needs to shine at Madrid for me to put him back near the top of my list. Eto'o and Gerrard are extremely good players but don't have that special subtelty about them that the true world greats do. Villa and Arshavin, like Kaka, need to stand out for a whole few seasons at a really big club for me to genuinely consider them amoung the very best, but from the signs they have shown, especially Arshavin IMO, they should be able to get there.

Eto'o is nowhere near Arshavin. You need to watch Eto'o "missed chances" video before you tell me how many goals he scored. David Villa is class, but Arshavin is better, Iniesta is a player I forgot to mention, but Arshavin is still better, Gerrard and Torres come close, but Arshavin is better and Kaka is the 4th/5th alongside Iniesta I suppose.

Tom, is 14 your age? Don't be so ridiculous! What has Ashavin won? A UEFA Cup and a couple of Russian League titles... WOW!!!!!! His goal to game ratio in Russia is 1 goal every 4.6 games. WOW!!!!!! Go to bed.
