Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that the boo boys at The Grove are starting to have an effect on their intended target.

Wenger made comments claiming that benching Adebayor for the game against FC Twente was more than just a bit of tinkering.

“I`m not sure yet,” Wenger said in The Sun. “He could possibly come in.

“I give my reasons to the players (for dropping them). It was a massive game but I cannot come out publicly with why (Adebayor was dropped).

“He needs the fans to be behind him. He is under pressure to score goals and we want him to feel relaxed.

“He made financial sacrifices to stay. Why should that go against him?’

I think it’s time for the guys doing the booing to give it a rest. Their point has been made but it has come to a point where the boo’s are become detrimental to the club.

If we want to challenge for honours this season then we need to be united on all fronts. Adebayor is an Arsenal player, like it or not, and even if you don’t feel like cheering him, then at least get off his back.
