Not so fast, Emmanuel; RESULT!
WHAT'S all the fuss about Emmanuel Adebayor's OTT celebration at Wastelands on Saturday?
He's not the first Emmanuel to go down on bended knees before dozens of men.
The City striker has been hit by two FA charges, plus three plastic bottles, two coins, and a steward. One charge is for "running the full length of the pitch to celebrate in front of the Arsenal supporters after scoring," which really is out of order. If I was him I'd have done it before scoring. And I definitely wouldn't have run.
The other is for violent conduct against an Arsenal player, though again there were mitigating circumstances - the Arsenal player was Robin van Persie.
Hills quote just 13-2 for the Togo striker to get a six-match ban and 9-2 to avoid any penalty whatsoever, which he should do because he's useless from the spot.
The favourite at 7-2 is a four-match ban.
