Adebayor Unrepentant After Burning At The Stake

Adebayor Unrepentant After Burning At The Stake

The moralising, football sanitising witchsmeller pursuivants in 'Fleet Street' and beyond won't like this one bit. An already fried footballer threatening more emotion and passion...

As panic stricken Football Association decision makers with 'Street of Shame*' hacks (er, and Arsenal fans) breathing down their necks thumb through previous evidence of footballers goading rival fans after scoring goals whilst deliberating what to do about Emmanuel Adebayor's improper conduct charge, the resting striker himself remains focused.

'I am not afraid and I will still celebrate with emotion. When you start to take emotion out of football you are going to have a very big problem. For the fans and the players it is a very emotional game, and when you take out emotion you have to question if people still care about the game.'

The four goals in four league starts Blues hitman referred back to FourTwogate...

'It is just one of those things that happens in football when emotions are high. When you are being abused for the whole game it affects you. People are saying ten seconds like it is a long time but it isn't. The whole of that ten seconds I was running and I was running on pure emotion. I was not thinking like I would normally do.'

I read in a Sunday newspaper last week where it was alleged that in Clattenburgs match report that Adebayor was booked for time wasting and not for his celebration. If this is true I wonder if this has been doctored so that they can do him again as it appeared to everybody else that he had been booked for the celebration.

Piers Moron, Ace Arsenal fan has answered his critics over Thierry Henry leading the way in goading rival fans...: GARY HOBBS "When I read your piece on Emmanuel Adebayor baiting the Arsenal supporters at the weekend I was reminded of an occasion on November 16, 2002, when Thierry Henry did exactly the same thing to the visiting Spurs supporters at Highbury, without inciting the ‘mock riot’ effected by the Gooners on Saturday. People in glass houses ...Piers says: "I was there and it was awful, I agree. Thierry should have dropped his trousers and moonied them, too."

Nice one JB for finding that one. I see yesterday that Piers Moron has now been having a go at Sol Campbell, thats a bit rich when you consider that he left Spurs to play for Moran's beloved Arsenal.
