Don't worry, it's highly unlikely to make any difference. Austria still is Austria after all.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

A thoroughly disappointing weekend in the EPL (well, for me!). Arsenal overturned without much difficulty.

Despite an exciting start I think it's going to be a difficult season for Arsenal. Still absolutely competitive, just not free of aberrations.

As far as I'm concerned they should be giving Adebayor a medal, not threatening him with a ban! He stood up for women and women's rights everywhere by stomping on serial rapist Robin Van Persie, and then showed how some Arsenal fans are completely nuts and can't control themselves or their tempers.

What a guy!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

One would hope that local law enforcement took note of those unruly travelling Arsenal fans and will impose match bans on them throughout England - the black eye they've given calm, focused football fans like myself is certainly unfair and I'd hate to see the rest of us punished just for the actions of a few.

And when is Rape Van Persie going to be suspended for that shameful studs up challenge on Adebayor?

In other news, it is getting more and more clear why Arsenal can't afford expensive players in the transfer windows - between the hush money they pay RVP's "sexual conquests" and the massive bribe they gave to UEFA for overturning Eduardo's ban, that poor team must be close to broke!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I don't believe for a second Adebayor didn't have his celebration in mind long before he actually scored. Caught up in the moment my ass he knew full well what he was doing and should have foreseen the kind of reaction he'd get. In a way I don't blame him because the Arsenal fans gave him a lot of shit last year, but equally he should be a professional about it like anyone else who scores against their old club. Not even Berbatov celebrated when he scored against Spurs last year and the fans hated him for the manner of his departure.

Handsomely beating your old club should always be enough and for most it is. Adebayor should get every one of those next six games' bans for both that and his insane kick at van Persie. It's not even making an example of him. It's punishing downright reckless and dangerous behaviour that we should not have to put with.

Yeah, because expecting Arsenal fans to act like adults is totally unreasonable.

Probably more chance of them acting reasonable than you will, your comments are typical of the average Sky Sports forum member and thuggish football fan.

Adebayor should get a Ben Thatcher type ban at the minimum and in other news Eduardo has had his suspension over turned WHAT A JOKE UEFA.

Yeah gotta applaud Uefa on this one. They obviously realised how much work and effort it would take to implement an anti-diving policy fairly and consistently, so now they don't even have to try.

Somehow I get the impression there's more to your approval of my comments than a simple appreciation of the Predator's skills.
