VIDEO: Watch Adebayor’s Fantastic Header For Palace Against Watford

4 Posted by - February 14, 2016 - News, Video

Yesterday was yet another grim one to be a supporter of Crystal Palace. There was one bright spot though, Emmanuel Adebayor opened his goalscoring account in red and blue just before half-time. 

This goal from Adebayor was a fantastic moment of individual invention. It proves beyond on all doubt, that he will always score when given chances. 

After seeing the side go behind early on to a Troy Deeney penalty, Palace lurched through the remainder of the opening 45 minutes in a semi-zombified state, struggling to gain any momentum whatsoever. 

As a consequence, when the equaliser did arrive, it came as a genuine bolt out of the blue, showcasing Adebayor’s stunning prowess when offered the merest sight of goal. 

Following a long throw from Connor Wickham, the ball was half cleared by the Hornets, only for Wickhan to once again find himself in possession on the left flank. He lofted the ball back into the area, finding Adebayor, who produced a sublime looping header that fell tantalisingly out of Gomes’ despairing dive and into the back of the net. 

It ended up being the only highlight on what was another grim afternoon in SE25. On an individual level, Adebayor looked as good as he has for us since signing, but overall, our game management simply wasn’t good enough to bring the desired result.

Will we manage to turn our league form around against West Brom in two weeks time? Your guess is as good as mine.

    We were shocking. I agree that Adeybayor does look like a genuine threat around the box but we are carrying too many poor players. We should have bought in the transfer window. I’m afraid that relegation is a very real prospect on current form. Let’s just hope that the return of Bolasie changes both our form and our fortune.

    Agree with rich too much dead wood. Delaney, mutch, Jedda, Campbell (absolute joke), lee, wickham left wing lol. Jesus the list goes on. Pardew has one tactic quick wing play then when we only have 1 fit winger they double up on him & we look aweful. Why the f@@@ is kaikai not playing? And why oh why didn’t we buy Townsend? Poor January window what’s the point in not spending & going down then what r we gonna do? Pardew has lost the plot with team selection. I’m not saying sack him but give him a huge kick up the ass. We have 4 quality premier league players, wilf,caba,bolo & Dann oh & mcartur on his day. The rest are average at best.

    What with the American investment I would of thought that would of freed up Parish and co money to spend on players in January. I know alot of people thought that Adebayor was a bad signing but I think it’s a bargain, only taking him his second full game to score. 9 million for wickham and he’s been useless, he might be good holding up the ball but he’s a striker, he’s supposed to score goals. With a full squad we are a top ten side, with the squad with had for the last couple of months bottom 5. With the likes of Bournemouth and villa beating us, I can’t see where are next win is coming from. Time for pardew to step up to the plate and show us why he should be are manager, honeymoon period is over.
