On fire City centre forward Emmanuel Adebayor has been leading from the front with The Blues and the media this past 48 hours...
...and he's certainly winning many plaudits with his positive approach to his future with City. Talking to the Manchester Evening News, he again revealed how geared up he is for the challenges that lie ahead:
'This team can achieve things. At Blackburn we showed character and we showed personality. We showed on Saturday that in difficult moments we can fight together...'
It's clear however that the Togo goal getter has scores to settle with The Arsenal faithful:
'It was very difficult for me at Arsenal. When I got the ball and tried to score a goal, even at home, the fans were still booing. That is something you cannot imagine...the criticism I got at Arsenal was unfair...I don't know if they think I am a poor player, but the important thing for me was to change clubs. That is all behind me now - I achieved a lot of things there and my record is not bad at all.'
That's a score worth looking into next month when Arsenal come to town. Meanwhile, there's no doubting that Adebayor was impressed with City's berserking 8000+ following at Ewood Park:
'As a footballer, when you know that the club and the fans are behind you, it makes you want to give 100 per cent - and that is what happened on Saturday.'
Finally, a word for the man upstairs and a vow to keep on keeping on for the Blue cause:
'I am injury-free now, and I hope God will put his hand on me and keep me that way for the rest of the season. If that happens, I will keep working hard.'
Amen to that, Ade!
