Adebayor Charged: Violent And Improper Conduct

Adebayor Charged: Violent And Improper Conduct

The English Football Association has today charged MCFC striker Emmanuel Adebayor with violent conduct and improper conduct in City's 4-2 win over Arsenal...

Cue street parties in North London and 'The Street of Shame' as hacks and Arsenal fans come together to watch the burning!

The punishment will soon be confirmed but Ade is looking at a 3 match ban for his reaction to Robin van Persie's tackle and maybe 2 more games for his reaction to goading from the travelling Arsenal supporters.

At least now Mark Hughes can get on with preparing for Sunday's Manchester derby with Craig Bellamy as his one remaining available striker.

But before Arsenal fans "string up" too much bunting, in truth they could have done with City winning at the swamp as both the rags and Chelsea are already threatening to disappear over the horizon from them again, but right now City have a mountain to climb.

No surrender, Blues. Siege mentality.

Adebayor is going to have a problem when he scores on the Emirates Stadium, unless it's in the end that the city fans are in. Because if he runs across the entire pitch to celebrate with city fans he will be banned again for improper conduct, and if he celebrates in the opposite end with the Arsenal fans he will be banned for inciting a riot.

lets stamp out celebrations in the game, cos everyweek we are gunna have a riot now, someone will dive to win a pen and celebrate after that pen is scored, which will in turn infuriate the opposing team/fans and cause a riot, but hey its ok to dive and cheat but its not ok to stay on the pitch and bask in the glory of a perfectly good goal you have just scored, theres been some staggering decisions taken this week and we have now missed our chance to stamp out diving which means drogba will have a field day this weekend (its a good job the winker is no longer in the prem init)

Who remembers Rooney giving it the big one past us at Eastlands when he scored the winner last season? Robbie Fowler and Andy Hinchcliffe both high fiving it to the rags for different reasons after scoring in derbies? Furthermore, this has to become a none body contact sport. That's the only way to rule out these 4 day witch hunts.

Back to the future and this is an absolute hammer blow to our season's plans. Adebayor has 4 goals in 4 league starts and has been playing as if his life depended upon it against all the mercenary predictions the Arsenal fans gave us. We're essentially out of ammo for the swamp now. We are going to have to dig deep for victory.

1 more thing i would like to rant about is this, eduardo dives to win a pen, the celtic fans start a riot because hes cheated now whos should get the blame for that?,, after all his dive was just as bad as ades run up the pitch they both could of caused a riot so why should 1 get away with it while the other is punished and one cheated to win a goal while the other just basked in his glory of a good goal

johnny ive just read an article that tevez is making a very good recover and should be fit to face manure
15/09/2009 14:59:00
Really? Offcial site unfortunatly says that it's "very doubtful" that Tevez will be ready...

City should recruit the same lawyers that proved that eduardo was innocent of diving and he was actually touched by boruc for the penalty. These mercial workers can work wonders and prove adeb innocent. Have faith city fans.
