Alan Pardew backs Emmanuel Adebayor to be a big hit at Crystal Palace

first_img Following a dramatic reversal in their respective fortunes, however, Pardew – whose team host Stoke in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday – is finally working with a player he clearly admires, and he will rely on him to provide his Palace team with the attacking threat they have been missing. “Of course (I thought my chance to work with Adebayor had passed),” Pardew said. “Once a player reaches that level, and they’re bouncing around the big clubs, unless I become the manager of one of those I wasn’t going to see him. “But he’s always been a player that I’ve always thought can disrupt games. He disrupts games, he can create a chaos factor, and you can’t underestimate that in the Premier League. “You need a player who’s got x-factor, and for whatever physical shape he’s in, he will create a moment that could change the game, any game, and that of course is why he’s here.” Adebayor is unlikely to start against Stoke, owing to Pardew’s belief he is short of match fitness having been a free agent for the past five months, and the manager is also without Connor Wickham after the FA suspended him for three games for violent conduct following a recent incident with Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen. “Connor Wickham’s learned a harsh lesson this week,” Pardew said. “I’ve disciplined him about the incident, that’s not what we do here. And he’s regretful of how it looked, he didn’t mean to catch him quite like that, he was trying to get the guy off who was pulling his shirt. “Nevertheless, he’s learned a tough lesson. Financially it’s going to cost him, and it’s going to cost us: three massive games he misses. “(Stoke) really get it down, have great technical players. Bojan’s been a great player for them, (Marko) Arnautovic has been one of the finds of the season in terms of adapting to the Premier League. “And they’ve always been resilient, they have the characteristics of a Crystal Palace team, defensively: very strong, not much given away, plus the flair in front makes them dangerous opponents.” Press Association Adebayor signed a short-term contract at Palace on Tuesday to finally join Pardew at Palace, 10 years after resisting the manager’s attempts to bring him to West Ham to instead sign for Arsenal, and after he had also considered bringing him to Newcastle. When the striker joined Manchester City from Arsenal in 2009 for £25million, having scored 62 goals for the London club, Pardew had just been appointed Southampton’s manager in League One and his reputation was in decline after an unsucccessful spell at Charlton. center_img Alan Pardew believes Emmanuel Adebayor can provide Crystal Palace with an “x-factor” until the end of the season, and revealed he felt his chance to manage the striker had slipped away. last_img read more

Libby found guilty in CIA leak case

first_imgThe verdict was read on the 10th day of deliberations. Libby faces up to 30 yeaerrs in prison, though under federal sentencing guidelines likely will receive far less. U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton ordered a pre-sentencing report be completed by May 15. Judges use such reports to help determine sentences. Libby faced two counts of perjury, two counts of lying to the FBI and one count of obstruction of justice. Prosecutors said he discussed Plame’s name with reporters and, fearing prosecution, made up a story to make those discussions seem innocuous. Libby’s defense team said he learned about Plame from Cheney, forgot about it, then learned it again a month later from NBC newsman Tim Russert. Anything he told reporters about Plame, Libby said, was just chatter and rumors, not official government information. Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald said that was a lie. But Libby’s defense team had argued that it would be unfair to convict Libby in a case where so many witnesses changed their stories or had memory problems. Former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby was convicted Tuesday of obstruction, perjury and lying to the FBI in an investigation into the leak of a CIA operative’s identity. Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, was accused of lying and obstructing the investigation into the 2003 leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame’s identity to reporters. He was acquitted of one count of lying to the FBI. Libby had little reaction to the verdict. He stood expressionless as the jury left the room. His lawyer, Theodore Wells, said they were “very disappointed” with the verdict. Wells said he would ask the court for a new trial by April 13. Such requests are common following criminal convictions. “Despite our disappointment in the jurors’ verdict, we believe in the American justice system and we believe in the jury system,” Wells told reporters outside the federal courthouse. “We intend to file a motion for a new trial and if that is denied, we will appeal the conviction. We have every confidence that ultimately Mr. Libby will be exonerated…. We intend to keep fighting to establish his innocence.” Libby will be allowed to remain free while awaiting sentencing, which is set for June 5. As the verdicts were read, Libby’s wife choked out a sob and sank her head. Moments later, she embraced the defense attorneys. The jury acquitted Libby of one count of lying to the FBI about his conversation with Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper.165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.
