Wenger shows more bad judgment by keeping Adebayor

lets rewind to last summer.

Arsenal had the chance of cashing in on one season wonder Adebayor, but Wenger didn’t want to sell him. Not even for £30m.

AC Milan wanted him and were offering BIG money. I at the time said “TAKE THE MONEY”

This summer Arsenal are doing everything they can to get ride of Adebayor but they cant find a buyer.

From my source at the club i can confirm that Arsenal want to sell Adebayor this summer and would accept a bid of around £20m for him. But we have not received a single offer for him. It was hoped that Adebayor will be sold in order to free up some cash for new summer recruits and to lower the wage bill at Arsenal but it seems like clubs AC Milan and co no longer want Adebayor.

So whats chance from last summer? Why didnt we sell him for £30m and why did we give him a new contract reportedly on over £100k a week?

Its simply, MORE bad judgment by the manager. Add this to the fact he sold Flamini,Diarra and Gilberto and is STILL yet to replace them with a DM at the club. The fact he signed Silverstre on a 2 year deal. The fact he plays this negative 4-5-1 week in week out. The fact he is playing Nasri as a DM and Diaby as a winger.

I think you can clearly say that Wenger has lost the plot.

How can we trust this man as our manager? With money so tight at the club we cant afford to blow what money we do have on shite like Adebayor. We should of sold him last summer. A huge error by Wenger and now we are paying the price. We are going to be lucky to get £12m for Adebayor.

If he stays he is just going to be moody so we might as well get whatever we can on this lanky streak of piss.

Its going to be a shit season again unless we start to sign some players SOON.

    Sinbad and all the other twats running down AW and the team should fuck off and go watch the yids and they would really have something to moan about.

    It’s obvious to all the stadium has held back spending on the team … we’ve done well to keep our top 4 status and still compete with the big teams in england and europe.

    Adeybayor certainly didn’t hav his best season last year….. his head was turned last summer and he struggled to focus.

    This year will be different… we have big players coming back… Eduardo, Rosicky… Theo is due a big season… Arshavin showed us we can expect big things from him this year…. if we can sort it out at the back and AW can locate a good DM we can compete… we ARE on the up….. we we’ve built this team not bought it… have faith you true gooners and the rest of you can FUCK OFF……..

    this article is total rubbish go and support manchester city, you’ve pointed out small misjudgements, but look at were hes got us on a fraction of the money united, pool, chelsea, spurs and city spend and were still in the top 4 with a great squad of talent, if we get that holding midfielder and get rosicky and eduardo fit then we’ll battle for the title, when ady and rvp are on fire their just as good as any strike partnership! so have faith….if not then go support manchester city

    Problem is AW is his own man and is answerable to no one not even the board. However this seasonn things could change.AW will be under pressure and another trophyless season could finally force the board to make him technical director.
    Well I hope he will finally realize that swash buckling soccer not followed by winning matches is unacceptable.Yes fans come to see pretty soccer but the game has moved on. It’s about winning at all costs.
    Lets hope the gunners weave less intricate pattern weaving soccer and shoot more often. It’s very infuriating when in most matches the gunners refused to shoot and opted to make one pass more thereby wasting the chnace to score.

    hey guys, why is everyone stinging sinbad for stating the obvious?. Except we are all decieving ourselves, the current attitude of mr wenger negates all that drew so much support to the team over the years. Arsenal have suddenly become a midtable team. We are no longer a factor in the premiership. Besides, Adebayor should never lead the line for an ambitious team. Am yet to know what his strenghts are. Is it the perpetual offside style he plays or the number of sitters he misses?. U guys want us, having been used to the magic of thierry henry, dennis Bergkamp, ian wright david rocastle, michael thomas etc to continue tolerating this guy? Please be serious my friends. Adebayor symbolises the collapse of arsenal values and only the few negative bloggers here or perhaps the myopic manager still think otherwise.Sorry to say arsenal would NEVER win anything again with adebayor in front and wenger on the sidelines. He is far past hiss sellby date

    “How can we trust this man as our manager?”

    Because Wenger is one of the best managers in the world, and he knows what he’s doing. You’re just a blogger.

    I grow increasingly tired of all the Adebayor-bashing going on amongst Arsenal-bloggers. 2 things in particular seems relevant to point out. First of all: why do you all keep insisting that the money raised from a sale would automatically be used to buy another striker and not say used to pay of the significant debt the club has accumulated? Second: How is it that every MORONIC blogger in this hemisphere think that you replace a striker that has shown that (when injury-free) can score 30+ goals for Arsenal in the PL with a snap of your fingers. And if theres so many better strikers availiable for 20million pounds, then WHY doesnt Milan want to buy them?
    Get a grip. Stop the Adebayor-bashing for one second and start behaving like true Gooners….support the players we have, not the ones we might someday buy.

    Yeeeah, and I bet you were singing Ade’s praises when he scored his marvelous goal against Villarreal to keep us in the Champions League. Seriously, f off Wenger you dolt. Stop trying to second guess him because you honestly have no f-ing clue what goes on behind the scenes.

    Normally i agree with the articles on here. Although somewhat extreme they do often have valid points just poorly made.

    This time i agree that Ade should be sold for various reasons but to suggest that AW has lost the plot based on a few poor mistakes is a bit far off the mark imo.

    He was wrong not to replace those who left and so on but it seems that he articles on here are more often than not just written to have a dig at Wenger.

    He hasnt been the best manager over the last few years but he is definately a better option than the vast majority of managers around the world.

    Even if Wenger had lost the plot we still havent lost out on CL football. So even at his worst, which is generaly impied on here, Wenger is still better than most managers in the league. And despite spending very little on players we still managed to go far in the cups.

    But dont let this comment fool you into thinking im an AKB or whatever. Only a few months ago i was calling for his head but after thinking about it there are very few managers that could come in instead of him, spend the same amount of money and keep us in the CL. So lay off him a bit….or just dont be so rude about criticising him.

    And to those who defend Wenger by suggesting Wenger haters should “fuck off and support chelsea”, or the yids, or mancs or whatever. How about just reading teir comment and give a proper reply. Dont just tell others to fuck off and imply that they are shit fans.

    Because we are all Arsenal fans….otherwise we wouldnt be on an arsenal blog. So learn to give a decent response or just shut the fuck up and stop cursing everyone who has an opinion out.

    You childish fools who are so blind that you continue to perpetuate the rumours stoked up by the anti-Arsenal sections of the press/media which enabled them to defeat us last season and now to continue proding and poking us prior to the coming one.

    Adebayor had more injuries last season than at anytime over his entire career which effected his performances over the season. I suspect that you boo boys just made the situation worse. Add injuries to Rosicky, Eduardo, Gallas, Fabregas, Walcott, Clichy… at key points in the season, not to mention Toure returning from the African Nations Cup with malaria at the start of the campaign and you will see why we struggled.

    Despite are woes, we got 4th spot again, reached the semi-finals of both the FA cup and Champions League and our treasured kids won the Academy league by 25 pts and stuffed Liverpool 6-2 in the FA Youth Cup Final.

    Wenger has bought us trophies, a fantastic stadium, a fantastic crop of young players and lifted our individual share price from 400 to 10,000 Pounds. For this reason, A certain Russian shareholder is gagging to reap the potential riches of total club ownership and is prepared to undermine the board/manager to get his way.

    Ramsey, Hoyte, Simpson, Nortvelt, Barazite, Traore, Gibbs, Emmanuel Thomas, Watt, Sunu, Frimpong, Lansbury, Murphy, Bartley, Coquelin, Merida not to mention Vela and Wilshere. The future’s bright, the future’s Arsenal.

    yes Ade is Shite and we all know it (including Wenger) but its time we stop bitching and get behind our team! lets face the facts that Ade’s going nowhere and and we must make do.

    have you noticed his attitude reflects the attitude shown to him buy the fans? Finsbury is right, lets get behind our team and give them the confidence they need.
    we scored as many goals as Man U last season yet we were 18 points behind. the issue is not Adebayor it is defence and Wenger will fix that this season.

    Agreed, we ll get behind the team but the manager and his players should show some ambition. Newcastle fans got behind the team last season and you guys saw what merely “getting behind the team” led the club to. Truth be told, Arsene has lost the nerve to compete. That fiery motivational look on his face has been replaced by a look of despondency, defeat and self pity. His body language is now programmed to give advance reasons for failure. All the crap about “potential” “average age is 22”, “this team is growing” “this team has belief”, are all excuses for a clueless man. The board may not be that supportive but even if u give wenger the madrid and mancity resources, he ll still go for the adebayors, diabys,denilsons, sagnas, eboues of this world. This man has done us proud b4 now but its time to tell him goodbye in the language he understands. Au revoir!. we certaily need an injection of real passion and not the complacency we now have. we ll be lucky to be top 5 except wenger wisens up. Adebayor is by no strength of imagination an arsenal player, full stop

    If you’re going to write what you feel is an authorative blog then as well as credible and intelligent analysis it might also help if you had a reasonable grasp of the English language. Your analysis as usual is pitifully wanting and I’m guessing you only write such brainless trite nonesense in order to provoke multiple comments, and there are enough intelligent rebuttals and appropriate insults above, which need not be added to. One small point regarding your use of English – instead of : “We should of sold him last summer” it should be: We should HAVE sold him last summer” – so your wrong on both counts – the grammar as well as the sentiment.

    If Wenger would have sold Adebayor last summer everybody would be saying that he never should have been sold. Because we still wouldn’t have won any trophies, keeping Adebayor was a gamble that still might pay off because we all know what he is capable of… 😉

    Oh for gods sake here we go again. Its the sign of a a derperate club when we start to turn on one of the very few players we have who has done anything. Lets get this straight. Adebayor is not the worlds best striker, but he is someone who got 42 goals in two years. In the permier league, not the Croatian or even French leagues. He reached a higher standard in his so called bad year (2008-09) than overated wannabes like Walcott, Eduardo, Denilson or Diaby can ever even aspire to.

    That is his standard. He nay not be Fernando Torres, but hes not that far off it. He might not be as talented as Eduardo, but the Croatian is lightweight – dont you think we have enough players in the team who are knocked off the ball too easily? Adebayor gives us the plan “B” we craved for years, or perhaps you havent supported Arsenal longer than 1 year and cant remember this?. If you dont like Adebayor, fine. Hes a git, but at least he’s not as mealy mouthed as “he who cannot be insulted” Cesc Fabregas about his future. And do you really thik we will get anyone who gets even half those 42 goals for the price we can afford under the non-sensical so-called self sufficieny policy of teh current asset stripping board. I mean have any of you seen how bad Chamakh is?? Think Heskey on a bad day. He really is that awful. If we can get Dzeko or even Aguero, fine, get rid of him. But we are more likely in the current market to sign Bobby Zamora

    Get a life. All of you Adebayor haters. He isn’t Henry, but hes a hell of a lot closer than anyone we will get to replace him. Be careful what you wish for.

    Arsenal forever

    Hell guys

    all we need this season is experince in the CM along with Denilson, another good central defender and a goal keeper and back up. Ade with the right service will do the business, don’t forget the amount of creative players we have available now with the likes of rosicky returning, so no worries Wenger has got it right, providing he don’t sell off now. I will have to say melo would have been an ideal DM solution.

    I am not sure that this site is dedicated to the Arsenal cause. Some of the comments appear to be simply antagonisitic as if to create disharmony.

    I have been a gooner for 40 years and believe me I have stood in the rain at the old Highbury watching a drab 0:0 draw against the likes of Coventry in a half empty stadium with absolutely nothing at stake. Some of you young fans are spoilt by what Mr Wenger has achieved and are taking it for granted. Right now, Arsenal are watched by 60,000 fans every week, play football that is admired the world over, anually play in the Champions League and as top 4 club in the Premiership can be regarded as top 5 in the world (Barcelona being the exception).

    Get off Adebayor’s back. Is this something racial? If you want to blame someone then it should be his agent as I think you will find it is he who tried to flaunt Ade around Europe for his own financial gain.
    Adebayor has said categorically that he never said he wanted to leave Arsenal and simply commented on how flattered he was to be targetted by a club such as the ‘beautiful lady’ AC Milan.

    There is so much else to focus on at Arsenal and yet certain fake fans continue to bring up every negative. Go and support Tottenham if you want to be depressed or do you support them already!?

    Right now it is difficult for most clubs to get a sniff of any top player when toy clubs like Chelsea and Manchester City simply have rich owners chucking money at every big name player. Then you have the likes of Madrid who are pretty much funded by their City Council. Can you imagine if Arsenal were funded by the City of London? What is interesting is how cautious Chelsea, Liverpool and ManU are with their owners money at the moment. I am sure you will find that they are indebted to their previous dealings the market.

    While the world has gone mad around us, we have been a top 4 club run very much run within its means. The fact is that we renegotiated a very favourable bank loan against our stadium which is comfortably servicable by the additional revenue we now make each season. We are not burdened by aging players on big salaries and in fact bursting with young highly talented players with huge potential on sensible salaries. The fruits of Wenger’s master plan will come to bear over the next 2-3 years when will have an excellent team of predominantly home reared talent with a healthy bank balance and trophies piling up in our cabinet.

    Keep the faith!
