Emmanuel Adebayor Is Innocent. Please Support Him

Emmanuel Adebayor Is Innocent. Please Support Him


The tabloids have hung Emmanuel Adebayor to dry, we all know that and now, the FA has charged the Manchester City striker with violent and improper conduct.

Emmanuel Adebayor is more than likely going to receive an unjust two or three match suspension - this is plain and simple wrong.

We at Vital Manchester City would like members to add a few words of support in the comments section directly below this article. I am sure you'll agree when I say, the footballing world is a different place when it comes to MCFC. We are going to be persecuted for every little incident and we as a group of City supporters need to rally round and support one of our own. Emmanuel Adebayor is one of us.

In an effort to clear up any ambiguity please watch the following Van Persie incident. The FA will have the same video clips and it will be them who decide if Ade deserves to be punished. The Football Association has to make the right decision, the only decision - Emmanuel Adebayor did not intentionally go out of his way to hurt or injury anyone. He is innocent.

I think if he meant the stamp and it looks like he does then he should get a 3 match ban. I also think RVP should get a 3 match ban though for his two footed lunge with both feet in the air in the same incident. I also think Arsenal should face some consequences for the behaviour of their fans and the consistent fouling on Ade.

Really.. From the second angle it is quite obvious to me that he is only moving his foot forward and down in order to keep his balance. The fact that RvPs head is there is his own damn fault for trying to make a stupid tackle. If adebayor had let himself fall down instead of keeping his balance it would have been a red card to RvP instead. So obviously the thing we can learn from the last few days: Diving pays! Trying to keep your balance does not! So DIVE DIVE DIVE!!!

Consistent fouling on Ade? Adebayor started that all with his deliberate stamp on Cesc in the first 12 minutes, not 15 minutes after he was hugging him before kick off. Ade will get the 3 matches for violent conduct now the ref has admitted he did not properly see the incident, and probably another one or two for inciting the crowd. What Robin did, although slightly over aggressive, and arguably malicious, was no worse than any type of tackle we see at least 10 times a week in the Premiership anyways, and the ref saw that clearly, saw it would be near impossible for the FA to retrospectively charge him, regardless of what you, me, or anyone else thinks.

We will not turn round the punishment but what we have to do is keep on supporting our player Adebayor, as he is special and has been hounded by all and sundry. The siege mentality is now needed as there are a lot of forces against City and their wealth. We must all stick together.

It's fair enough defending your players ozi but to say when he caught Fabregas was deliberate is taking the biscuit. There is no way on this planet that was deliberate. If you think two footed lunges through the air go unpunished every other game too your deluded.

Hardly a 'two footed lunge' Goatboy, both feet were grounded, he won the ball, it may have had a lot of overt aggression in it, but isn't that what has been trumpeted about good, 'ard, British lads like Roy Keane, Nicky Butt, the Neville Bros., even Martin Taylor, as recently as last year? It was not the best tackle, I can admit, if he had of hurt Ade, I don't think he'd of shed a tear about it, but both feet were grounded and he was clearly going for the ball as was shown in the fact he won the ball cleanly, if he had of intended to hurt him as Ade did him he very easily could've. Ade on the other hand deliberately (and on watching any replay - as the ref himself has said - there can be no doubt it was deliberate) racked studs down a guys face. Comparing the two 'challenges' - if you can call Ade's that in any sense of the word - is quite frankly, ridiculous.

Adebayor will have a strong bond with Blues now. He's already catapulting into Rosler, Goater, Quinn territory.
