On July 18th, news spread of Emmanuel Adebayor’s medical at Manchester City. Arsenal’s £25million striker would be leaving them. What a relief.

Now, as Adebayor is finally unveiled in the blue of Manchester, he has criticised the Arsenal fans for their treatment of him, even saying that they were the key in his decision to leave. And he may think he has good reason to do this. Boasting impressive goalscoring figures in his first two years at the club, Adebayor quickly cemented his place in the starting line-up.

Unfortunately, the goals dried up in 2008/09’s average, albeit injury plagued, season. The Gunners had only managed to keep the striker with a wage hike, as interest from other clubs had flown in. On his return to the Emirates, the star appeared lazy and disinterested. Inevitably, the goals dried up and so did the fans’ sympathy.

But who could blame us? It had taken money that could have been better spent suring up other departments to keep the striker, and he simply showed no desire to replay the club. So as the boos rolled in, Ade rolled out, seeking out “greener” pastures. Having now requested that City attempt to secure Kolo Toure’s services, Cry-baby Adebayor shows now signs of ever returning to the good graces of the Arsenal faithful.

Only time will tell who benefits more from the deal, although I feel the £25million burning a whole in Wenger’s pocket will provide far more comfort than knowing we still have our lazy underachiever.
