Is he? Isn’t he? – The Emmanuel Adebayor story

One man. Two clubs. Crossed wires

Adebayor

Anyone who has ever spent a chunk of time working the dole queues will know all about the necessary components that make up a decent afternoon TV movie.

You start with a man/woman having a very normal time of things, then you mess with their equilibrium a bit (remember, it’s the afternoon, so nothing too racy), and then within two hours everything is back to normal again.

All of which leads quite astonishingly seamlessly to this afternoon’s gentle drama, featuring Emmanuel Adebayor playing a man who was going to be bundled off to Italy (Juventus), before his bosses told him that it wasn’t happening. Moving stuff.

Repeated tomorrow.

    Adebayor and the media seem not to realize that because of Serie A’s non-EU rule he can’t move to Juventus this January. They also seem not to realize that Juventus doesn’t want him.

    Agreed. Juve already have the Serb Klasnic, who is far and away their best player this season and not likely to be jettisoned any time soon, especially not in favour of this wastrel.

    I thought I’d also heard that Juve had signed a Uruguayan as well, but I’m not sure about that …
