No Adebayor appeal

Confirmed by

Manchester City announce that both the club and Emmanuel Adebayor have reluctantly accepted the violent conduct charge laid by the Football Association in the wake of the victory over Arsenal.

The player strongly maintains that he did not intend to act in a violent manner.

He apologised on the day to Robin van Persie personally and to the wider public for the outcome of the challenge.

We await the findings of the FA's Disciplinary Panel which is due to meet tomorrow.

I suspect that given the reaction and attention that has been heaped on the incidents since Saturday, whilst the club and Adebayor may feel he is innocent of the charge (in public at least), they feel that the chances of a succesful appeal are limited.

By accepting the charge, it is likely to just be a three game ban (which a red card at the time would have brought) rather than a potential bigger ban if the charge was contested.

I do, however, expect the second charge of improper conduct (for his celebration) to be contested ahead of the 30th September deadline.

vote it up!

Isnt it about time that Hughea took a step forward and admitted that he was supporting that mental case adebayor...and learn that there is no pride being proven wrong all the time...
To even start to discuss anything sorrounding adebayors dreadful attack on Van Persie..well to do that...having seen the attack on vodeo..well then one must be stark raving a street on a saturday would have been promptly arrestend and brought to trial...

and i must say..adebayor should haven been sent off at once...something the ref admits too...then there would have been a very different match...nope city fans you are very lucky who got out of this with three be it..

but i must say mr Hughes is a marked pride or truth..just a sad sad person...

Best Regards Tom

Anonymous... you are the sad person

you should own up
City wiped the floor with us
I don't like to admit it but Adebayor played a blinder... it's a shame his behaviour over-shadowed his skills
He could be sitting back relaxing and enjoying the victory
instead of being banned from the Utd derby...

Utd are obviously scared of him playing that they've been sticking their beak in as well

I'm still glad we sold him but I can't see Bendtner or Van P scoring as many as him this season.

Up the gunners for tonight... hope our defense is awake this evening

well tom, do think
rvp should be prosecuted for assualt on Oren (who he kicked in the head
) sorenson who he took out for no reason or richardson who he elbowed in the face without provokation! or the two footed lunge that was taken without regard for adebayors well being!

once again , arsenal shown to be poor losers, who think they are above it all. the fans were disgracful, the conduct ont he pitch of the team was also out of order. poor attitude, blame everyone else ignore the truth!

At which point have Utd 'stuck their beak' in? One quoteless report in The Sun does not constiute interference now does it? Adebayor played three times against Utd at the end of last season, twice in high profile Champions League semi-final games, and hardly instilled fear in the opposition in any of these matches. In fact the only conclusion that can be drawn from those games is that Vidic is his owner.
