Emmanuel ‘Evander Holyfield’ Adebayor apparently DIDN’T punch Frank ‘Looks a bit like KD Lang’ Lampard. Pity. After Arsene Wenger started spouting off and shouting "THE LINESMAN IS A BIG FAT LIAR!" to just about anyone who would listen, and then called for Fat Frank to come forward and save his striker.
Lampard’s agent Steve Kutner told LiteSport on Thursday: "I’ve spoken to Frank and he told me he hadn’t been hit by anybody." This is bad news for the FA as their position was always ‘That Adebayor well threw a punch at our Frank’, which leaves the whole thing becoming more farcical by the second. Of course, the FA are changing their tune now…
After everyone in the world disagreed with the FA, they have now claimed that at no point did the linesman say that Adebayor punched Lampard, rather, he just ‘aimed a punch’ at the England midfielder.
Wenger, who usually can’t see a contraversial incident – even if it took place on his nose – claims that the officials’ report is untrue.
Adebayor hasn’t helped his cause for appeal by being charged with reacting aggressively and failing to leave the field. Of that, there is surely no question. The player has requested a personal hearing, to take place next Tuesday, and Wenger insisted: "I don’t agree at all with the report of the linesman on Adebayor because, for me, he lies. When he says he punched Lampard, I would like you to ask Lampard if he was punched and I want him to say the truth. We have watched it on microscope and if you see Adebayor punching Lampard, I would like you to show me that."
That’s how bad Wenger’s eyesight is. He needs a pissing microscope to watch a game. The FA now want Arsene to explain himself. [Mof Gimmers]
