Adebayor misses a sitter as Man City lose 1-0

What a shame!! Adebayor gets off to a horrible start and misses a sitter as Man City lose 1-0…Thank you for the £25m for Adecanthitabarndoor

NEW signing Emmanuel Adebayor made a miserable debut for moneybags Manchester City as they slumped to defeat against Kaizer Chiefs in Pretoria.

More than 30,000 fans turned up at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium, but were let down by a below-par City, who ended their tour of South Africa on a low — they lost two and won one match in the Vodacom Challenge tournament.

Jeffrey Ntuka’s effort four minutes before half-time proved the difference between the two sides.

Former Arsenal striker Adebayor, one of City’s biggest summer signings at £25milliion, was handed a first start by boss Mark Hughes, while another new boy, £12m Gareth Barry also played alongside the likes of Shay Given, Nigel de Jong, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Craig Bellamy.

After a quiet start Martin Petrov and Adebayor both were on the wrong end of clattering challenges during the opening 15 minutes, but survived to play on.

But there was bad news about City skipper Richard Dunne who went off just before half time with a knee injury.

Given was forced to make the first real save on 41 minutes when Nkosinathi Nhleko’s shot caused the Republic of Ireland international to dive low to his left and tip the ball wide.

The resulting George Lebese corner caused panic in the penalty area and Ntuka drove the ball home from close-range to hand his side the winner.

City kept the same players on after the restart with Adebayor’s timely run 10 minutes in almost paying dividends, but, after seeing his initial cross-goal pass come back into his path, the Togo striker blazed over when he should have hit the target

£25m PMSL!!!

    Adebayor is a good player when he wants to be, i must admit at games i was not happy how arsenal fans treated him. His goal against Villerael was class, however he is too inconsistent.But Arsené Wenger got a bargain 25 mill is way too much he is worth about 15 mill. I do feel Man City need to get rid of Mark Hughes a manager like him cannot deal with big name players. My conclusion is that if Arsenal do not replace adebayor and get a DM we will not challenge for the EPL, Adebayor was a brilliant target man and now we’ve lost him bendtner cannot replace him. DEnilson is just not strong enough in the midfield he is a little lightweight

    Well Said.

    Wenger has this season to win a major trophy, many fans will not like hearing it but it is true, make or break for my beloved gunners.No matter what excuses are made five seasons without a trophy is simply not good enough.The problem comes when you bring in a manager to replace Wenger and tell him to balance the books the way Wenger has.Lets not forget without Wenger the Emirates would not have happened and while people like to bitch and moan about cash not being spent they soon forget it when they are sitting in that great stadium.We can’t have it all ladies.

    I hope Wenger gets it right this season, i really don’t want him to be the sacrificial lamb used by the board to explain their unwillingness to explore other avenues.They simply don’t want to relinquish any control when that is the very thing needed.

    ha ha ha

    im glad to see the back of that twat!

    Laziest Arsenal player ever!!!

  6. the gun says:

    man city is the biggest joke in the history of football.
    i can bet my left balls they wont make it to the top four.
    they are a disgrace, with a low class manager playing low class football

  7. dickie says:

    i’ve said it before and i’ll say it many times again……….stupid northern monkeys.

  8. Ron Harris says:

    Are you being serious?

    We were awful away last year, awful, but brilliant at home. There probably wasn’t a more entertaining side at home in the Premier League last season. I accept that a season is 38 games, but to say we play ‘low class football’ is unbelievably stupid, especially when Arsenal trott out the same tedious ‘try and walk it into the net’ guff.

    Dickie by name, dick by nature

  10. andreidagiant says:

  11. gooner_ali says:

  15. Daz says:

    Fuck off Man City Dickheads, You hav about as much chance of finishing in the top 4 as Spurs have! ZERO CHANCE! Have fun watching Adebarndoor next season! I think my girlfriend understands the offside trap better than he does!!! LOL

  16. CHIKA says:

  17. Bruno says:

  18. Zak says:

    You’re stupidly deluded mate. When Adebayor’s heart was with us, he was one hell of a player. He unfortunatly lost interest and didn’t give a shit anymore. He isn’t a one season wonder as he has the ability to replicate his 30 goal season if his mind is at it, easily capable.

  19. SuperArsenal says:

    @ ian wrong

    i laugh at you mate yuou dont kno wat your talkin about.Henry is a god to me but will never do wat he done in the PL in la liga like it or not he is the best striker EVER in the PL and flamini is the only player we let go dat we shouldn hav.Hleb~nasri is 5 years younger and already scred more goals than hleb.Viera was past it Fabregas made a show of him in the champs league 06.|Oh and yeah bentleys playin the rest of his carrear in the spuds reserves so sad we let him go ha and as for cole hes been matched all the way by clichy and gibbs will be better than he ever was and yes we got like 15 mil profit for anelka whos finally come alright 10 years later you forget that we didnt pay over 1 mil for him.As for stevie sidwell well hes just destroyed every midfield in the PL last year!!!!!!

    Please dont talk about wat ya dnt kno you couldn possibly be an arsenal fan talkin that SHIT so y dnt ya fuck off to a spud site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. SuperArsenal says:

    Oh and dnt even get me started on adewantsmore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    bluecol,fuck off you ponce Michael Jackson

  22. radhyaksa says:

    Manchester city should bring all of their strikers so they can use 1-18 formation

  23. Adebayor is worth every penny.

    He’s a 30 goal man (last season he had injuries).

    Arsenal will miss him despite what they think.

  24. Jon says:

    This is directed at all city fans who think us gooners are bitter that Ade has gone…haahahahahahaha. Correct we are giving this a lot of air time, but its not because we are bitter, its because we are so excited that hes gone, and we got 25 mill for him! Wenger has smashed it and when something good has been done for the club it should be spoken about. You can try and wind us up, but we are soo delighted hes gone its funny to see you try and get under our skin. I hater Man Utd, but at least they have some class, you guys are just plastic, fickle idiots and the no 1 problem with football in this day and age. You dont support your team, you support money…football whores.

  25. rafi says:

    iam eagerly awaiting a season when ‘sparky will get a player when sparky want him'(forgetting he failed to land his chief target at arsenal -RVP, E’too, kaka,etc) will become a ranieri look-alike and become MR CONFUSED TINKERMAN. I also look forward to his departure under presssure from city, tail under the legs.

  26. goo goo goo gooner says:

    BOTTOM LINE: CITY GOT A SHITE DEAL! THEY WONT FINISH TOP FOUR NXT SEASON…SO ONTO BETTER THINGS PLZ

  27. harry says:

    adebeyor adebayor give him the ball and he will score…..BOLLLLLLLLLLLOCKS!!!!!!!

  28. lanetim says:

    adebeyor good nice performance !

  29. Lee says:

    This report is a complete rip off form the paper.

    You haven’t even bothered changing a single word… that’s just plain lazy. Then to call it your own work is just insulting to the people that can actually read.

    Really quiet sad, do you not have an imagination of your own? with so much material on this sad subject you couldn’t come up wiht anything original?

    Any muppet can cut and paste….

    As for an Arsenal Blog – why not concerntrate on Arsenal…. not ex-players

  30. john w says:

    Bullshit Zak. If you consider the chances created for this guy in season 1 his conversion rate was poor. I won’t miss him one bit – for me he was a negative on the pitch

  31. Alan says:

    IanWrong: Cole hasn’t won 2 titles at Chelsea and we made £6million from the Bentley sale to Spurs plus the £3.5 BlackBurn paid us in the first place. Anelka missed a penalty in the CL Final last season and was laughing 30 seconds later. Hleb admitted he made a mistake and would love to come back and although Vieira won titles (the Juve one was fixed) I think most would agree he is indeed past his best. As for Henry – fair play to him. He was/is a great player and left with all Arsenal fans blessings.
