Video: The burning of my Emmanuel Adebayor Arsenal shirt

After Emmanuel Adebayor’s “performance” against Arsenal I thought it necessary to take some serious action. You can see the video and photos below or via this LINK.

Cheers to my housemates Annie and Michael for helping me out on this one…

Annie prepares the fire

I'd spit on it if I wasn't scared of fire...

A job well done.

Huzzah! I’ll have another post for you a little later today.

    well done, i don’t mind about his celebration but no insane man would do what he was trying to to the players, as if they were his enemies of life time….

    Even Though it was just an kit with Sitibayor written. It was just so pleasing to watch. Just waiting for him to come at Emirates. This is what he deserves total disgrace to arsenal history. Just can’t believe his name will appear in arsenal history books. Arsenal made him what he is. We never thought he would respect arsenal and it supporters. But also never thought he would disrespect us in this way. What an looser. Can’t Forget his act for my life.

    That Adeboy is brainless. May be there is a bit of madness in his history. That injury on RVP, untill now I still cant understand why. May be he will blame the city fans after six match ban.

    September 15, 2009 at 7:16 pm #

    Am I missing something here?supposing we won that game would we be reacting in the same way?
    Lets face it: we were beaten by a well organized and solid ManCity side who capitalized on our defensive lapses.For how long will we continue wishing and talking of “IFs”…..only “ïf” so and so hadn’t hit the post, or the ref this and that…..Three more loses and we are done in my opinion.
    And on Ade:Am not holding brief for him but personally I will not judge him.While at Arsenal you can tell from the way he’s been talking that his confidence took a battering because of the behaviour of you and me against him at a time when he needed our support and methinks this match presented the perfect opportunity for him to prove his worth and make his point that he is still a good striker
    I doubt whether he’ll be penalised for the RVP incident by the way. It is RVP who went for Ade in the first place with both feet and studs up.And Ade reacted in the same way Song did after that malicious tackle from Ade.Infact to me the one against Song was more sinister than against RVPs.
    And just out of curiosity; are we branding him a monkey because of his roots or beacuse of his actions which have nothing to do with the former?

    September 15, 2009 at 7:25 pm #

    That was cool and funny my bro!!!
    Anyway, he deserves something like that. something that I just wanna point out here is that Adebayor is not the only former Arsenal player angry against Arsenal fans and might have even left Arsenal becos of its fans (May be!!!) but Anelka also is a former Arsenal player angry to GonnersFans, and I quote what he said: ” ..What i didnt like with Arsenal is their FANS, and id like to punish them…!!”,We may remember the way that the Arsenal fans treated E-BOOOU-EH at the emirates last season.Sometimes, I beleive that we also have to admit what we ve done wrong and Ade was really badly treated by the fans last season bcos of his temporary uggly performance (might have been caused by the injury!!) but also Untimely placed which has occured during the worst Arsenal season of the decades.What he did was wrong!! I must admit.And even myself, I cant wait to see the burnt Mancity back to the Emirates.But for those London Gooners who have said that Adebayor is a dead man in London is quite over reacted to me.Lets proove them on the pitch that we are better team and lets make him thirsty of his Arsenal shirt again.Lets not forget the good things he has done for us as AW said.

    I know how you feel Andy. I think Adebayor has unwisely lumped all the Arsenal fans together as if we aren’t individuals in our own right. A lot of fans still stuck up for him right to the end even though he didn’t deserve any love after his public courtship of Barca and AC. I don’t agree with the chants he gets at all but I think he has forgotten everyone who made him.

    Money was the motivating factor – this is a guy who complains about the London congestion charge. His ego became too big, he lost all sense of reality and decency. Jenny from the block he wasn’t.

    @Mimi Wenu, I fully agree with all your statements but please dont mention something racist-y like this.Half of the Arsenal squad are all Black African origin, and they have been always supported by their fans since the time of Viera,Kanu,Henry, Lauren (Who have been some of the most beloved Arsenal player of all time), I dont really beleive that the world Gunners fans are racist.

    I saw many of our own fans calling our players names, what did they ever do to you? They might not be what you want but we didn’t buy them with a high price tag…and they’re still very young…

    Wenger has many flaws recently, tactically i’d like him to be more opened with his selection…and he could save himself alot of headaches with a couple more players..

    But I don’t WAIT for MY team to lose and then come out…fine but don’t celebrate when be got it right and we win then.

    This week’s focus should be on how we lost and that scum…I don’t see alot of you depressers single him out like you did with wenger and players…and why the Hell is that???

    That bitch did to us much much worse…he showed us all a finger and criminally tried to hurt our best players…but no, Wenger is a bigger cunt to you.

    Sometimes, I wish you would look at yourselves of how you treated your own team, manager, and own fans…we all love to win, but we don’t wait for failure just to come out and have a few cracks at the man…

    If we don’t win I know ill see you again but when we do win something whenever it may come, where will u be then?

    We have rights to support and believe…

    In reply to the gloomers:

    My belief is also long long overdue…if you let me choose any particular 10 year period in club’s history, it is Wenger’s ten years.

    Are we that bad?

    Anti-Wenger really believe in themselves to be intelligent fans who look down in their fellow supporters…while I like Wenger’s tactics and doings less lately, I still believe we re a unique club which don’t and will never follow anything or anyone.

    We played ugly to win in a time of beautiful-craving era led by Ajax…we played beautifully in a time of only-winning matters…

    Have we become a club in which we need to win to justify everything? And with all the talks about failure, A LOT of people forgot that in this so called bad time we reached a CL final, reached a mickey mouse cup with kids, and came mighty close to win the league before injuries led by Eduardo ruined everything?

    No, this is not an excuse to love Wenger, it’s just that I see potential there, a potential to win it our own way that drives me to believe….what if we spend 100 mil on 5 players and not win? And win? Are we like Chelski and the new richy rich? Do u want to us to be?

    You tell us to see the past 4 years….why don’t you look at 10 years then? Why don’t u look at how we lost in CL final that we all suffered together? Whose fault is that? We’ve become what we are by making profits on players, winning trophies more than any other team but man u on the way? We re a failing club only if you want us to be…

    Go ahead ask for Wenger’s head if you gave a gut…but I believe no one will. Hiddink?? Wow, no thanks.

    I saw many of our own fans calling our players names, what did they ever do to you? They might not be what you want but we didn’t buy them with a high price tag…and they’re still very young…

    Wenger has many flaws recently, tactically i’d like him to be more opened with his selection…and he could save himself alot of headaches with a couple more players..

    Paulette, i agree with you 100%. Andy you should be ashamed of yourself. All you have done is given the go ahead for swine like kayne to air his honnest felt views. With vomit like him as a so called supporter maybe Ade was right to want to leave. What a discrase you are. I can never understand why you do this in england. Deep down inside is this really your true colours showing its ugly head. In my whole life i have never called anyone names like that. Why does it come so easy for, i dont understand.

    Just wish we had more to talk about than Adebayor. Scary that we were so well beaten in the end and leaked 4 goals. The real issue is that despite early season optimism we are just not good enough and are showing the exact same defensive naievity as last season. It’s a shame.

    Nice to have you back, Andy. I had to lough. I take it as a symbolic gesture to express feelings. Nothing more. I agree with radads. You would surley feel in another way if Arsenal would have won the match. I hope too, that Adebayor will be punished because of his ruhtlessnes and provocant behaviour. But let’s it up to FA, and ignore him. Concentrating on the positives is always the best. And there are always positives. You know. I’m waiting for your match comment.

    Mimi, respect to you and your words. Is this inciteable comment ment to help Arsenal win the prem. You supporters are so short on recent success and control of which direction your team is heading in you begin to act like fanatics. Supporting the hammers i have had far far worse than you but i still maintain my respect for others when at upton park and beleive you me i have had more than my fair share of players leaving for what ever reason. Grow up. Lets get back to talking football and how if we were the manager what we would do, because in reality thats really all we can do.

Im crazy about football and my Westham, but that depth of resentment or negative emotion you hold within you towards what is only a football player does not exsist in me.

    ravi & icehammer have excellent points.

    The culture of booing and calling players name is wrong, and is not part of a good fan culture.

    Adebayor is a royal cunt and his behaviour has been serially despicable but he’s often gotten as good as he’s given.

    Right from his 30-goal season, there were people calling him Adebarndoor and ridiculing him. Long before any Beyonce controversies.

    Hate directed at players can lead to situations like these when things get out of hand.

    dat was too bad 4rm a man who knows so much about arsenal profile.Ade was not treated fairly while in arsenal & in return decided to be rough wit former team mate but dat was not too gud of him,cos arsenal made him who he his today,so sud respect the club dat gave so much to become great player even he was making missing goals here& there, he was still giving the chance to show the world the stouf he was made of.

    With that out of the way do you Gooners think that Wenger should adopt a slightly more conservative offense in the midfield. This is exactally where Djourou would have come in.

    while i can appreciate the gesture behind the jersey burning i hav to say i was dissapointed and surprised as this is not a good representation of what we are as fans of a great football club..yeah he did wrong but i feel we are only empowering him more and addin more fuel to the fire by persisting with this and its only deflecting away from the obvious problems were having at the moment…from wot iknow of you andy i would say this was done on impulse and would not hold it against you but on hindsight maybe you wil see it as a mistake to be burning an arsenal crest just to make a point to an individual who has no respect or loyalty outside of his own deluded selfish bubble…for any outside fans to see this now it will only make us look like we really did mistreat him and that he was right to rub our noses in it and that was not the case.
    the underlying feeling here is that fans are frustrated with the team and adebayours just been used as a scapegoat for alot of you to blow off some steam…the facts are we are well short of competing for honours again this year and whilst winning is certainly not a must for me,as a fan you want to see that the manager and board are at least trying to move us in the right direction and this is where i feel both parties have been shortsighted and mistaken and we are now gonna hav to buy another arshavin type signing in january to panic and scrape our way to 4th place if were lucky.i love wenger and do not want any1 else anytime soon but i hav seen his stubborn and slightly arrogant side in recent years by his refusal to take the calculated risk on quality and experience instead of signing kids and like-minded players and clones such as rosicky,RvP,nasri,arsha,diaby,etc who all represent the same type of player and lack physicality and bite.
    @ravi- i appreciate wot uv said but i hope wot iv stated above will give you an indicaton of the feeling that for the majority of us we dont hav an insatiable appetite for trophies but just with the emergence of all these money driven clubs that the people who have the power do their best to maintain our status and competitiveness do their upmost and that this relentless fascination with provin we can be champions with a team purchased for half nothing as kids should be examined and maybe aided by a bit more positive activity in the market for experienced and seasoned players as i feel missin out on quality and value such as shay given last year,especially as we hav the hapless concrete footed almunia as our current no.1, as a crime and once again shows a glaring blindspot on behalf of the manager.
    this is a football site and our fans are among the fairest and clued-in fans around so lets come and debate and ignore these ignorant racist opinions and any outside idiot upstart opposition fans feeble attempts at getting their cheap thrills…

    @ shambo – Some good points mate but at the end of the day the burning was about fun. No need for anyone to take it too seriously.

    September 15, 2009 at 10:06 pm #

    @ shambo – I should also add that this has nothing to do with frustration about the team. It is about Adebayor and Adebayor alone. I’m actually quite happy with the way the team is going and I think we’re looking good despite two unfortunate losses against good teams. The league is strong this year and there is a long, long way to go. All the big teams will be dropping points and we’ve had a very tough start to the season.

    nice 1 and i can appreciate that then mate.maybe the team and squad frustrations are solely my own,i just thought after the scare we got last season that more would be done to make us a force this year and banish any chance of a repeat, but we hav let our competition for the vital CL spot improve while we hav stood still…and if our financial restraints are to be believed wot direction would we go in without the vital CL generated funds and can we keep promising cesc,arsha,RvP and sagna that we can win trophies, as whilst we as fans can be patient it is trophies and medals that these guys want at the end of their relatively short carreers

    Shambo tops as usual. @Andy when was the last time the league wasn’t strong, its been this way the past 4-5 years and you must have some unique faith to be quite happy in the way the team is going. @Baz, i think its a shame that a fantastic club like this has to reach down to the bare bones so early in the season. What makes it so frustrating is that so many bloggers could smell the possibility before Wenger and had been crying for add assistance during the transfer window.
    @Young Gooner, honest question, why do you have this type of language as part of your volcabulary

    Ha! Hey, S.F. – it’s your kit and you’re well within your rights to do with it as you see fit. I think burning it was a perfectly fitting gesture! Half serious, and half tongue in cheek, I think. I like some of the other suggestions, too: 1) Remove the crest, first. 2) Keep the shirt, but XXX out the name on the back.

    Anyway, cheers to you, and COME ON GUNNERS!

    @SHAMBO – the team and squad frustrations cant be solely urs.
    We all trust in WENGER, but you and ICEHAMMER were especially very objective in ur pre-season assessment of the squad. This is why I appreciate ur comments a lot.
    @ICE – thanks…now to ur question. I would feel we need to balance the squad this way….

    Let FABS use his head more while attacking, players should be watching out for each other(Covering). Let ROSICKY do all the damage instead- I say we give him the free role. FABS can attack arrogantly when we play lesser teams, not when we play experienced teams like …. and he should play slightly in front of SONG. ROSICKY plays in front of both of them, not on the side as this stretches the squad a lot. Let the wingers attack and defend, but let the middle be steady, creating and countering attacks at will. This way we can show our strength more, instead of trying too hard to overwhelm the opposition without caring about any counters and so on….anybody seen BARCA midfield?

    @Shambo, bare bones mate, should he get injured were in deeeeeeep shit. Did you see the disallowed goal on Saturday. The ball was travelling towards the open net and the ref blew up for half time. All Carlton could was laugh. We were so unlucky, in hitting the woodwork twice. Were beginning to slide down the table, things not looking to good. Just hope the boo boys dont return. What the latest SP on young Djourou. Is it true he could be away until March. i think he could have made your offensive play slightly more conservative when pushing forward. Its a shame.

    @ice
    im 25 and have been playing at a modest but competitive irish sunday league club at senior level since i was 15 and hav one medal to show for it,this being my hometown club i see this as a huge underacheivement and my playing years are running out…so i can only imagine wot cesc,RvP,arsha and co are feeling as they are foreign and only loyalty to our club is dependant on their individual integrity,of which so far there could be no question, but with all that gibberish iv just spoken taken into account theres no way i could fault cesc for returning to his hometeam barca if he were to do so next summer and with the likes of arshaa,only at the club 5 months in july, publicly sayin the manager needed to strenghtin you feel maybe we might play ourselves into big trouble.but like i said i for one would not blame ANY current arsenal player for leaving to go to a more ambitious club with realistic chances of silverware,had you asked me that question in june mate my answer would hav been different but the shocking inactivity this summer has left a bitter taste

  97. GunnerBoss
    September 15, 2009 at 11:01 pm #

    When Clichy overlaps, SONG has to be able to cover for him, and FABS has to watch it, so he could do same for SONG.

    We conceeded the second goal against CITY cos there was no one looking out for BELLAMY…everyone was in front already when clichy missed the ball…SONG covered for clichy and VERMALEN went to help out too….unfortunately, the ball was passed at speed for BELLAMY while GALLAS was with the idiot ADE. If someone had covered for SONG, he would never have that chance. CITY were excellent in finishing, but we tried to dominate the game….I would’ve preferred if we sat back and did the counter attacks. I think we should start playing clever football and stop playing video game football.

    he also said we must hav a gang of pot smokers because some guys concentration and demeanor had that of mouth-open dozey headed potheads,namely almunia,senderos,diaby and song….he said he didnt know wot bendtner and eboue wer on…kinda had to laugh at that

    We lost to MANURE cos of this,now CITY?

    When we were leading MANURE, i felt we should’ve changed our unpredictable pattern a bit. Confuse them in the process and think of changes for Christ’s sake.
    Actually, I still feel if we had FABS then, we would never have lost that game….I mean we were on a roll, confidence was very very high.

    CITY was there for the taking, we all saw it, but the players were excited, WENGER included. We needed to do that diligently.
    When I saw FABS in the starting line up, I said good, we’re gonna win….but he just went forward too much.

  105. GunnerBoss
    September 15, 2009 at 11:39 pm #

    He needs to learn to balance the team with experienced players, he had opportunities like SHAMBO mentioned earlier about GIVEN…5mil, who can believe that?

    Now, he’s not even playing WILSHERE, if he spots a talent, let him play the guy regularly.

    Why is our best finisher not in the starting line-up?

    We need electric players on the wings, not people that need encouragement.

    Everyday, different people show different attitudes. Why did CITY not play ROBINHO or TEVEZ? Why did ENGLAND stop playin OWEN? Why did WENGER play ADE even when he knew he was no-where near full fitness in the champs league semis?

    These are the answers

  109. GunnerBoss
    September 16, 2009 at 12:01 am #

    @ICE – I seriously dont know what happens between them, I guess WENGER runs the show.
    I remember we reached the UEFA finals cos one of our former defenders was spying on the other teams and giving WENGER good feedback, which he surprisingly adhered to strictly.
    (Remember HENRY had the chance to put us 2-0 up, but I dont know what was wrong with that guy at times…was it cos he wanted to leave?)When credit was lavished on the guy, WENGER became jealous and sacked him……Were are we now? We cant play like that anymore, WHY?

    Then we lost PIRES and ARSENAL FC came crashing down.

    M UPSON is good, i like him too.

    Burn the shirt all you want, I’m fine with that but you should have cut off the Arsenal crest before burning it as that is just like burning the Union Jack.

    I personally agree that you should have done that to anything with Greedebayor’s name on. I personally tried to defend him when he first left but after that game I swiftly withdrew my support and I think him no better than Cashley
