I did, and I couldn't give a shite that Adebayor played for them either. I would have taken lots of their players!
If he goes to Bayern, he has my blessing (and that's a stretch because they're a CL rival) but I couldn't get past Woolwich or Man United.
My dream move for him would be a return to his homeland to manage Boca Juniors or something like that - I also wouldn't complain if he wanted to try his hand in the MLS or the J1 League. I don't begrudge a man his ambitions.
Gallas fan here too, loved watching him play. I know what you mean about José's appointment sitting uncomfortably but the player's responses seems to have been positive enough, particularly Kane.I loved me some Gallas. A player whom I admired and who hardly came with the typical Gooner-twat baggage.
Adebayor I was forever reluctant about, but that was more because of his merc-like tendencies.... I said all along, the loan was a fantastic idea (not to mention that it boiled Scum piss in the process); the permanent deal not so.
Personally, circumstances and the individual in question play a decisive part. Whilst that may sound like convenient fense-sitting, I dare say VERY few stopped supporting the club when the man with the raincoat came in.... Ultimately, one just has to accept that it's not realistic to expect a club to be run on fan sentiment of such kind so I'll always do my best to look past things and get behind what's best for the club even if it takes a while for me to adjust to their presence or at worst I never truly warm to them (as was the case with GG).
I make no secret of being vehemently "no" to the suggestion of JM managing us. Now, although I am far from comfortable with the idea, I simply hope with every fibre that he can prove me and my reservations wrong.
