Adebayor - Killing the game

Emmanuel Adebayor: Was brought down in build-up to Spurs goal
.


.. .
Emmanuel Adebayor's has angrily claimed referees are 'killing the game' after Martin Atkinson's performance in their FA Cup semi-final loss to Chelsea.

Tottenham were thrashed 5-1 at Wembley, but their task was made harder when Atkinson allowed Juan Mata's 'ghost goal' to stand despite the fact that Benoit Assou-Ekotto cleared the Spaniard's shot before it crossed the line.

"They have to make something happen because it's killing the league, it's killing the FA Cup, it's killing the game, it's killing everything."
Emmanuel Adebayor Quotes of the week

With Spurs already 1-0 down thanks to Didier Drogba's opener, they were compelled to throw men forward, and even though Gareth Bale pulled a goal back, they were ultimately hammered thanks to late goals from Ramires, Frank Lampard and Florent Malouda.

And Adebayor could not hide his anger after the game, telling Sky Sports News: "To be honest, we have to blame the referee.

"I think we have done well and he has made a lot of mistakes and made a lot of wrong decisions.

"We are all disappointed. But what do you want me to tell you?

"How many goals scored this season were disallowed that were onside?

"To be honest, I'm just tired of it and everyone is talking about goal-line technology.

"They have to make something happen because it's killing the league, it's killing the FA Cup, it's killing the game, it's killing everything."

Red

Adebayor insists that when he brought down in the build-up to Spurs' goal, they would rather have had a penalty and seen Petr Cech red-carded.

"That is the thing, he caught me, he should have given a red card and penalty and to be honest, you have to blame him - he made a lot mistakes and a lot of wrong decisions," he continued.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp agreed that they would rather have seen Cech sent-off and a penalty, rather than just having Gareth Bale's goal.

"I felt if the keeper has been sent-off and we get a penalty I would much rather of had that, the odds are we would have scored and they would have lost their keeper," he added.

they need to allow television evidence and/or another official, to eliminate so many

Think Redknap has too much 'baggage' and a risk of maybe more stuff coming out about his wealthy dogs investment habits.
Hodgson has more International experience so i suppose He'll do but i dont envy his task frankly in the short time hes got to name the squad for the Euro's.

Hodgson is being given quite a rubbishing in the media, feel a bit sorry for him.
Redknapp always seemed to give the impression the job was his for the taking,
was that arrogance or did the FA intimate that to him I wonder but then got
fed up with him not making up his mind. At the end of the day as you say lioned
may have thought more dodgy stuff may come up in the future.

Wayne Rooney: Manchester United striker's overhead kick is the Premier League Goal of the 20 Seasons

.. .
Wayne Rooney has won the Premier League Goal of the 20 Seasons Award for his spectacular overhead kick against Manchester City.

The Manchester United striker's stunning goal in February 2011 was voted the best ever in a Premier League poll of hundreds of thousands of football fans from around the world.

The Goal of the 20 Seasons is the first award to be announced as part of the Premier League's 20 Seasons celebrations, which are designed to honour the players, managers and football that has taken place over the two decades of the world's most watched and supported football league.

The top three strikes garnered half of the public vote, with Rooney's overhead kick in the Manchester derby in February 2011 got 26% of the vote. Second, with 19%, was Dennis Bergkamp's impudent flick and spin goal against Newcastle United in March 2002. Third was his former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry, who took 15% of the vote for his flicked volley versus Manchester United in October 2000.

Rooney follows in the footsteps of former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham, who in 2002 received the Goal of the 10 Seasons Award for his audacious goal from the halfway line versus Wimbledon in August 1996.

Great honour

Describing his win and goal Rooney said. "I grew up watching the Premier League so to be voted the best goal in the history of the Premier League is a great feeling.

"There's so many good goals in that shortlist, goals that I watched in my living room as a kid: Alan Shearer's goal, Paulo Di Canio's, Tony Yeboah's, David Beckham's.

"To be competing with them and winning is a great honour for me and something I'm very proud of. I'd like to say a big thank you to all the fans that voted for me."

There were 300,000 fans who voted in the Premier League 20 Seasons Awards casting over 4.2m votes in five categories: Goal, Match, Save, Goal Celebration and Fantasy Team of the 20 Seasons. In addition, there are also six panel categories: Player, Manager, Team, Season, Most Memorable Quote and Fantasy Team of the 20 Seasons.

The winners of these Awards will be announced over the next fortnight leading up to an event on Tuesday 15 May when the Player and Manager of the 20 Seasons Awards will be announced.

John Terry found not guilty

John Terry has been cleared of hurling a racist obscenity at Anton Ferdinand.

The England and Chelsea defender was acquitted of calling Ferdinand a "f****** black c***" during a Premier League game at QPR on October 23 last year.

Chief magistrate Howard Riddle cleared the 31-year-old of a racially aggravated public order offence at Westminster Magistrates' Court. Giving his verdict, Mr Riddle said the case was not about "whether Mr Terry is a racist in the broadest sense of the word".

He said he had heard a great deal of evidence to show that he is not.

"It is understandable why Mr Terry wants to make this point, his reputation is at stake," he said.

Terry left the court within minutes of the verdict. Looking impassive, he was escorted by aides past the media scrum. He made no comment but was cheered by a small group of Chelsea supporters as he was driven away.

The Crown Prosecution Service defended the decision to prosecute the former England captain. Alison Saunders, chief crown prosecutor for London, said: "The very serious allegation at the heart of this case was one of racial abuse.

"It was our view that this was not 'banter' on the football pitch and that the allegation should be judged by a court. The Chief Magistrate agreed that Mr Terry had a case to answer, but having heard all of the evidence he acquitted Mr Terry of a racially aggravated offence.

"That is justice being done and we respect the Chief Magistrate's decision."

would agree with that Panda, everyone knew Terry would get off, and certainly
not justice he has been allowed to get away with it, a green light for every racist thug
like Terry to say what they like to the black football players. He has proved himself time and
time again to be a nasty piece of work. Ashley Cole's testimony should have been thrown out
since he has been exposed in the media as being a downright liar and also on a tv documentary
shown himself up to be not a particularly nice person.

Yes cherry1, I saw the other day a reconstruct of Cole's and they said he was too far away to understand what was being said and that stupid judge
has given the green light for all kinds of verbal abuse on Football Pitches in Britain. I don't know what Cheryl sees in him , she could have done better
I'm sure.

and the worrying thing is to see people celebrating the result!

Makes you wonder what the world is coming too. It took a lot of courage
for the case to be brought in the first place and make a stand against this
kind of behaviour.

Anything goes in Britain today cherry1 and the Government havn't got a clue, standards have dropped so far and instead of Cameron doing something
concrete about the Human Rights act for starters he's like Nero, fiddling while Rome Burns.
