Tis’ the season to laud the best of the best. The football universe is filled with incredible talent. And we love to bestow awards on those who play sexy football. Messi, Ronaldo, Iniesta and Rooney are world-class players. They are part of the reason we love to watch the beautiful game.
On the other side of the coin, there are some players who have prominent roles in elite teams and they often leave you scratching your head as to why. And let’s face it. Every team has them. Even the team you love and adore.
On the odd occasion, the greedy part of football can make you dislike the game for about 30 seconds. On the other hand, it can also make you dislike a player for a lifetime. Emmanuel Adebayor hasn’t played it particularly smart during the off-season. He has come across as a greedy guy and somewhat insincere. Perhaps he thinks we’re all stupid. He pledges his future to Arsenal and then in the same breath, whores himself out to the highest bidder because the club won’t match his demand to quadruple his wages. Seems like he’s been spending too much time with Mathieu Flamini and Alexander Hleb.
