I'm trying to forget about Adebayor's behaviour over the summer. I'd love to try and move on and draw a line under the situation but I cant. So if I cant let go does that mean I'm not the only one?
What I'm saying is maybe morale in the squad isn't the greatest at the moment and maybe one or two players cant forget Adebayor openly offering his services to other clubs.
Things like this can affect performances on the pitch and it niggles away in the back of your mind. When Ade missed that chance against West Brom last week the first thought in my mind was why didn't you clear off in the summer? Who's to say some players didn't think the same?
Ade really undermined the rest of the squad with his pay demands. By asking for so much money he effectively was stating that he was the best player in the squad when clearly he isn't. By flirting with the big guns of Europe he was saying that he is too big for Arsenal. He isn't.
I'm not trying to add fuel to an already burning fire but this has to come into account for Arsenal's poor start to the season. Ade got a bit too big for his boots in the summer and I wonder whether some of the players resent his presence now in the squad.
Although I really hope I'm wrong and that isn't the case. But could Ade's summer behaviour be a factor in Arsenal's poor form?
