I wanted to write this the other day when I actually read a piece that Harry 'check out my eye-bags' Redknapp wrote in his column in the Sun newspaper. My apologies for it being later than a London bus.
He seems to have a massive opinion on Adebayor-gate and my advice to him is to keep his mouth shut. He hasn't stopped going on about it. It's obvious that he is just trying to knock Gooners so that the Spuds will take to him a little more.
Redknapp spoke of contrasting celebrations by players who scored goals against their former clubs and I can't believe that he justified Adebayor's celebration but slaughters Carlos Tevez who, when scoring against former club West Ham, gave a dignified wave to the Hammers supporters and actually wanted forgiveness.
He actually criticised Tevez for NOT celebrating his goal and I find that amazing. What did he want Tevez to do? Incite the crowd like Adebayor did? Did Redknapp want a near-riot? I actually believe that Redknapp is jealous because the Argentinian is loved in the East-End and he is far from loved there these days.
He then uses his own nephew Frank Lampard as an example. Now readers of this blog know that I also use Lampard as an example quite often, usually as a piss-take. One thing I have to say though is that Lampard gets a lot of stick down at West Ham but I have yet to see him run the length of the pitch and sliding on his knees after scoring against them just to say 'I've scored, 'ave some of that' as Redknapp puts it himself.
Redknapp seems to forget the reasons why Adebayor is hated at Arsenal now. He wrote about the good bits, the fact we signed him for £7m and sold him for £25m but he forgets that Ade professed his love for Arsenal one minute and the very next was whoring himself to everyone.
He forgets the last season Ade had at Arsenal. The season that Adebayor actually thought he had made it and was as good as Thierry Henry. The lazy Adebayor who wasn't earning his big-money contract and who was basically mugging off Gooners who pay a lot of money to watch their heroes every week.
Good old Harry forgets that Adebayor has done nothing but slag Arsenal off since he left the club and has probably inflamed the situation ten-fold. It was always gonna be a pressure cooker game. Adebayor made sure of that. Who could blame Gooners for being a little upset?
Perhaps Redknapp wants to look a little closer to home before he embarrasses himself anymore. He forgets the abuse that Sol Campbell received at the hands of his very own club. Did Sol Campbell ever react to years of stick from the Spuds, and abuse that was far worse than what Adebayor had, whilst wearing an Arsenal shirt? Of course he didn't. That showed a real man.
Adebayor had 80 minutes of it and lost the plot. Before Harry Redknapp actually wrote his piece did he actually think about it? Of course not. He has no brain. Would Gooners have reacted so angrily if Adebayor didn't celebrate the way he did? Noooooooooo. Sure there would have been abuse, but the near-riot was caused by the Togo-Twat. I don't care that football is an emotional game and that poor Ade took a load of stick, what he did was ridiculous. It was asking for trouble.
Imagine for a second that the Togo-Twat had the savvy to do what Tevez did, that would have said a lot for the man and probably would have stunned us Gooners into silence. Instead we saw the true dick-head he is and Redknapp defends that but knocks Tevez??? Shows me what type of man Redknapp is actually.
Keep it Goonerish............
