The moralising, football sanitising witchsmeller pursuivants in ‘Fleet Street’ and beyond won’t like this one bit. An already fried footballer threatening more emotion and passion…
As panic stricken Football Association decision makers with ‘Street of Shame*’ hacks (er, and Arsenal fans) breathing down their necks thumb through previous evidence of footballers goading rival fans after scoring goals whilst deliberating what to do about Emmanuel Adebayor’s improper conduct charge, the resting striker himself remains focused.
‘I am not afraid and I will still celebrate with emotion. When you start to take emotion out of football you are going to have a very big problem. For the fans and the players it is a very emotional game, and when you take out emotion you have to question if people still care about the game.’

‘It is just one of those things that happens in football when emotions are high. When you are being abused for the whole game it affects you. People are saying ten seconds like it is a long time but it isn’t. The whole of that ten seconds I was running and I was running on pure emotion. I was not thinking like I would normally do.’
