WTF! .The Ade-hero or Ade-zero?

The last weekend fixture has produce some of the Premier League best games, best goals, star-studded performances and a lot of controversy. The Tottenham Hotspurs versus Manchester United game saw Jermaine Defoe scoring what seems to be one of the fastest goal in this season Premier League (45 second into first-half), and another classic comeback from the reigning champion Manchester United. Beautiful counter-attack and open game, magnificent free kick form Ryan Giggs and a very high pace game from both teams have made the game pretty mouth-watering and heart-pumping. The only set back to the game was a sending-off of Paul Scholes for second yellow card which was not even a foul, agreeable by most of the pundits.

The Arsenal versus Manchester City game is another game not to be missed as the so called "The Big Four Potential Contender", Manchester City was entertaining the visiting Gunners to Eastland. The former Arsenal hitman, Emmanuel Adebayor will sure have more than one thing to prove to Arsene Wenger and the travelling Arsenal fans. That night Ade sure prove one thing, that he can still score and still has his childish and unprofessional  character in him. But who can blame him? The only reason why he ran across the field to celebrate his goal in from of the Arsenal fans was due to the booing and jeering he received from the fans throughout the game. I guess he is still upset with the fans act of trying to sell him of to another club. Adebayor also came into the picture earlier than his goal when he seem to have lunge his foot to his former striking partner, Robin Van Persie on his face.

Talking about the celebration incident, from my perspective, Adebayor is still a human and has feeling. Even when he was playing like a dumb-ass most of the time at Arsenal, he already score more goal than all of the youngsters' goal combined together. And the fans act of booing and jeering him should be taken into account as things won't happen without a cause. Berbatov received the same treatment at the White Heart Lane twice and this really affect the Bulgarian striker at first. But last week games shows that Berba has matured and maybe if we can give Adebayor time, he will. Who knows? right?

Oh well, it seems that the Adebayor case will be something the press will talk about whole week, and the Manchester Derby next week will be something to be waited. Given that Manchester United has to travel to Turkey for their first Champion League group stage match, and followed by the Machester Derby and Carling Cup Match in less than a week gap, Sir Alex Ferguson will have a major headache to handle with.
