People Removing the info i'm adding
Sorry, but i keep updating the page every 3 weeks or so, (stats on his record aginst tottenham, assist and goal against fulham etc) and people keep removing it, how come? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs) 11:58, May 10, 2007
- usually if the information is not very notable or some sort of a milestone you get expect it to be removed. Because imagine if he's only 23 now and so many of his goals/moves/assists are chartered in a few years time the article length is just going to explode. Chensiyuan 19:59, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
On Football Manager 06/07 there is a young Adebayor listed in the Metz U18. Ade is mentioned in his favourite personel. If it's his younger brother it might be worth mentioning. PlayCollective 01:34, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
- It doesn't seem unlikely. They are usually quite accurate actually. Google and see if you can find out something, could be his brother or maybe another relative... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:47, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
Ugh well Ive had enough goes with trying to make a fancy annotation with the henry adebayor dance so I embedded the gif so if anyone wants to make a fance annotation thumbnail image thing go right ahead :)Rammstein1 05:30, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
Poor quality article
This, without a doubt is the worst Wikipedia article that I've ever seen. The Arsenal section for a starter is littered with journalistic magazine style information that wouldn't look out of place in a tabloid. If this isn't sorted soon then it is going to have to be addressed at WikiProject Football. Jazza5 (talk) 17:13, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
CL Runner Up?
- The article 2004 UEFA Champions League Final confirms he was in Monaco's squad that season, so he would have got a silver medal. slυмgυм [ ←→ ] 18:38, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
Why is The Emirates cup classed as an honour? This was just a pre season friendly tounament and isn't counted as a competetive tournament. —Preceding unsigned comment added by DDRickyDD (talk • contribs) 14:32, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
Style of play?
I reverted a change earlier removing the style of play section. The claims are good, but I think a major change like that should be discussed first. I'm fairly indifferent to the matter. Thoughts? – moonty (talk) (contribs) 05:45, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
- Style of play sections are fairly common, even amongst good and featured articles (e.g. Thierry Henry and/or Duncan Edwards). In a wider context the same can be said of articles on basketballers. But most of the time these sections are quite hard to write (POV etc.). Chensiyuan (talk) 08:27, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
- Maybe I was a bit hasty in removing it from this article, but I do not like "Style of play" sections because a majority of them are nothing but opinion ("He is known for this or that") and are mostly gleaned from what's written in the press. They offer nothing encyclopedic.--Beemer69 chitchat 20:23, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
- Saying that he scored a "stunning volley" at a "seemingly impossible angle" is nothing but POV and weasel words. It does not represent a neutral viewpoint. Plus, a list of goals he scored is sports commentary, which doesn't belong either. Beemer69 chitchat 00:56, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
Is it a joke?
Guys,is this a joke?THE FINNISH WIKIPEDIA HAS MORE INFORMATION THEN THE ENGLISH ONE!He is a great player that plays for an english club and there isn't nothing on this page.I suggest to write somethng,is ridicoulos that the only thing of Adebayor's page are Honours,References and external link.--Ujkaj4president (talk) 14:58, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Nothing mentioned on his holding the club to ransom over the summer and refusing to commit when his name was banded about in the press and generally being an all round mercenary? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 13:27, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
Adebayor's wage listed in article
The wage given (80,000) is a newspaper journo's guesstimate. It is not reliable information in any sense. If this figure was a matter of general consensus, it might be appropriate to say that the figure has been widely reported as £X, but there isn't even any consensus. I've seen figures from about 50k to 120k+. Since Arsenal club policy is not to reveal individuals' contract details, it is unlikely that any source is reliable.
Anyway, a newspaper's speculative article may be published, but it's not subject to any kind of review process. The particular newspaper cited has 'a poor reputation for fact-checking [and] rel[ies] heavily on rumors and personal opinions.'
- You're saying The Daily Telegraph -- the source in question -- does not meet RS in Wikipedia? Chensiyuan (talk) 14:45, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
- Absolutely. They'd be a RS for a match score, but not for a transfer fee or wage report unless released by the club. I don't think any newspaper is a reliable source for that kind of information, but particularly not the Daily Telegraph, which has a reputation as one of the most speculative tabloid-esque news outlets when it comes to football transfer stories.
- As for the somewhat irrelevant question of whether newspapers can be reliable sources, the answer is largely no. They are abused frequently on Wikipedia to 'reference' things that are unproven on the basis that a non-peer-reviewed, unaccountable newspaper article has said it is so. The opinion of a journalist is usually no more suitable material for Wikipedia than the opinion of a Wikipediphile.184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:09, 9 June 2009 (UTC)Josh
- Oh, one more thing: if the Telegraph was reliable on this, the reference would be interchangeable with one each from all of The Times, The Sun, The Daily Mail, the BBC, Sky Sports, etc. The fact that it's not is what makes this an unacceptable source. That, and the fact that the figure given is likely to be inflated by ~50%. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:13, 9 June 2009 (UTC)Josh
- Should it even be in the article in the first place, even if it is true? That's highly debatable. "Biographies of living persons must be written conservatively, with regard for the subject's privacy. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a tabloid paper; it is not our job to be sensationalist, or to be the primary vehicle for the spread of titillating claims about people's lives." 18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:17, 9 June 2009 (UTC)Still Josh :)

Arsenal fans do not use any racially insensitive songs when singing about Adebayor. The song is : "Adebayor, Adebayor, We've got Arshavin. Fuck Adebayor" Nothing racist in that. I'd appreciate it if in the Controversy section this is addressed as Arsenal fans don't sing that, but other teams did sing the racially insensitive song when he was playing for Arsenal.
Played for Man City earlier this week?
Tell me if I'm wrong but Adebayor played for Man City in the Man City vs United match in which United beat city 3-1? If he really did that is impressive because, tell me if I'm wrong but did he not get involved in a near fatal shooting? Just editing this page to check if it is ok to add that the article. Otherwise, ya know, the edit might be reverted. Jack Quinn UK (talk) 16:26, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Cher Adebayor, Soyez assures que toute l'Afrique vous soutient suite a cette cinique et honteuse decision de la CAF. Travaillent -ils reellemnt pour l' interet du Foot Africain? C' est tout simplement scandaleux et revoltant. Toutefois, suis persuade que ca ne passera pas. dU COURAGE !!!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 09:14, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
- Thanks 41.191.197! I'll put that through a translator. Jack Quinn UK (talk) 16:42, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
- The comment reads Dear Adebayor, rest assured that all Africa has continued supporting you and cinique this shameful decision of the FCA. Reellemnt they work for the interest of African football? It is simply outrageous and disgusting. However, am convinced it will not pass. OF COURAGE !!!!! What does that have to do with Adebayor playing on the week ending 31st January 2010? Jack Quinn UK (talk) 16:56, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
- Estoy de acuerdo con Jack_Quinn_UK ¿qué tiene esto que ver con Adebayor jugando en la semana que finalizó el 31 de enero 2010? Dg-reg-fd-1972 (talk) 21:57, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

T-shirt Wore con la pistola a 50 conciertos ciento
¿Debo agregar al artículo el hecho de que Emmanuel Adebayor llevaba una camiseta con una pistola a un concierto de 50 cent que más tarde llevó a la prensa cuestionables? Tengo un enlace para apoyar la reclamación. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dg-reg-fd-1972 (talk • contribs) 22:04, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
- Should I add the article the fact that Emmanuel Adebayor wore a shirt with a gun to a 50 cent concert which later led to the release questionable? I have a link to support the claim Dg-reg-fd-1972 (talk) 08:13, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Edit request from 126.96.36.199, 11 April 2010
Confirm number, or dispel rumor.
Numerous anon editors keep changing his number from 25 to 9. None seem to want to show where they've got their info from, but with so many doing it, it must at the very least, be a rumor going around. I am not a follower of this sport; can someone who's in the know find out, so we can stop reverting these anon edits?! Hamamelis (talk) 22:10, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
- The anon editors are correct, per this. Cheers, Mattythewhite (talk) 00:37, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
This section or the article has no backup from anywhere on the internet. The only evidence for anything close seems to come from rumours from tabloid newspapers. Surely not worth keeping? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:22, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
