Adebayor: 'City Bigger Than Arsenal'

Adebayor: 'City Bigger Than Arsenal'



Emmanuel Adebayor reckons that with Manchester City's squad now bursting with talent, they are only a few wins away from becoming bigger than Arsenal.

When asked if he felt like he was playing for a bigger club now, the 26-year-old replied: "Yeah, it does feel like that.'

"With the great new players we`ve got we have a wonderful chance to make ­history.

"But it`s all about results. If we can win ten games in a row, people will class Manchester City as bigger than Arsenal."


With the likes of Yaya Toure and David Silva joining City over the summer, the Togolese striker believes that success is all in the mind, stating: "We have to work on the winning mentality and add that spirit to the squad.

"We can finish in the top three - that`s our belief now."


Adebayor has hardly endeared himself to fans of the Gunners since the Van Persie incident and emphatic goal celebration in City's 4-2 demolition of his former club.

But one thing is for sure, City are on the up and the top clubs like Arsenal are now well within sight.

These are indeed bizarre times. The likes of Liverpool and Arsenal used to come to town to deliver our annual footballing lesson. Not anymore they don't.

What can they say?! Truth hurts! I find it amusing when Arsenal fans come and criticise Ade saying he is crap. He scored more goals than Arshavin, Van Percie, Bentner, Vela, Eduardo and all the rest of the dross they had as strikers last season. Thanks for the concern but we couldnt care less what the gooners think about him (considering their disgusting attitudes pushed him out of Arsenal in the first place). Ade is a top striker and City fans would much rather have him than any of their crocked strikers.

Fabregas flirted with the exit door far more openly than Adebayor but there are no signs of him getting the same (often racist) treatment as what Ade got. All said, Adebayor should be quiet and get his head down on the pitch, as we need him in form.

Bigger than arsenal? Im a spurs fan and i no thats not true. You have more money yes, but ur not bigger or better yet. Your fanbase is smaller, and your history is shorter and money cant buy either

simply rubbish from EA, no disrespect to City, but they nor Spurs compare with Arsenal or Liverpool, for that matter at the moment, because they have done it over a sustained period, City (and spurs) may well excede anything Arsenal achieve, but at this stage we are kidding ourselves if we think we are the bigger team(s)

Not often gooners and yids agree but Liam has said it all. No doubt all the truckloads of greasy oil money mean that you may win the PL sometime soon, but that too wont mean that you are bigger than us. You will have to win 14 EPL titles while we stand still to be bigger than us. Adebayor shows his characteristic low intelligence and complete lack of historical perspective in believing that even "winning 10 games in a row" will make Citeh a bigger club than the Arsenal. Lol.

What can I say, other than, Adebayor needs to get his head checked. And surprisingly welcome comments from spurs :)

Adebayor must've bumped his head or been high on something when coming out with these statements. Why doesn't he concentrate on being the bigger man and either rise above it (I can't believe it still bothers him) or do his talking on the pitch (which looks unlikely seeing as he cant even make your starting eleven). Pathetic on his part.
