Emmanuel Adebayor Reportedly Needs Sign from God to Leave Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor‘s transfer saga took another odd twist on transfer deadline day, as the Togo international reportedly turned down moves to a number of clubs on advice from his pastor and believes he needs “a sign from God” before he will leave Spurs.  

According to the Daily Telegraph‘s Matt Law, the 31-year-old finally agreed to a contract termination offer that would see Spurs pay his wages in full until he found a new club and made up the deficit between his former and new wages, only to change his mind again:

Tottenham were desperate to offload Adebayor this summer and made the striker a deadline-day offer to cancel the remaining year of his £100,000-a-week contract, so that he could join a new club as a free agent.

But Adebayor initially rejected Tottenham’s offer, insisting that he would only leave if his contract was paid up front and in full, which would have cost the club around £5million.

The former Manchester City star started just a single Premier League match last season, per WhoScored.com, and he isn’t a part of the club’s long-term plans. He refuses to leave Spurs, however, knowing full well his next contract will be significantly lower than the deal he’s currently on.

As shared by the Daily Telegraph‘s Paul Hayward, fans shouldn’t really be shocked at this latest development:

Tottenham and Adebayor will likely continue negotiating his termination, but with the transfer deadline now passed, he won’t be able to sign for another club until the next window opens in January.

Adebayor claimed back in July he needed a sign from God in order to go through with a move to Villa that seemed all but certain―he even posed in the club’s shirt at one point, per Law.

Fans will likely debate whether religious or financial reasons are the primary cause for this latest twist, but as things stand, Adebayor could very well see out the final year of his contract without playing a minute of Premier League football.

French watchdog to probe ex-Alcatel-Lucent chief’s 14mn-euro payout

Michel Combes left his role as head of Alcatel-Lucent to join French telecoms group Altice as its chief operating officer and chairman of its Numericable-SFR mobile phone businessFrance's markets watchdog said Tuesday it would examine a deal that could see the former head of telecoms equipment maker Alcatel-Lucent receive around 14 million euros ($15.7 million) as part of its buyout by Finland's Nokia. The AMF watchdog will "check to see if there are no irregularities" in the payments that Michel Combes could receive over a three-year period, its head said in a statement to AFP, including compensation due to a non-competition clause. In a growing storm around the payments, French Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron said he was "unhappy" that Combes was leaving the company "prematurely".

Police: 1 Suspect Dead, 5 Others In Custody Following Carjacking, Crime Spree In Newark

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Police say one suspect has been killed and five others are in custody following a morning crime spree in Newark.

As CBS2’s Christine Sloan reported, two of the suspects barricaded themselves inside a building on West Runyon Avenue, but surrendered with their hands up, laying on the ground after police and SWAT teams surrounded the building.

This, after police said the two and four others went on a morning crime spree in the city.

Rebecca Granet reports

Police said it began with the carjacking of a silver Jaguar.

Katherine Carter, with the Essex County prosecutor’s office, told 1010 WINS’ Rebecca Granet the carjacking took place around 6:40 a.m. on Ivy Street in the Vailsburg section of the city.

“Officers attempted to pull over the vehicle and a pursuit ensued,” Carter said.

Then, Carter said the car stopped and the six men jumped out in the area of Hawthorne Avenue.

“Three were apprehended. One was hit by the police car and killed,” Carter said.

That’s when the two remaining suspects ran into a nearby building before ultimately surrendering to authorities, Granet reported.

A victim was shot, but it is not known at what crime scene because according to authorities, the group committed a series of felonies and robberies, Sloan reported.

“Subsequent to that they received other calls regarding other incidents involving that same car,” said Clara Rodriguez, with the Essex County prosecutor’s office.

Police said they will be reviewing video recorded inside police cruisers during the chase to determine exactly what happened.

The condition of the victim who was shot is not yet know.

The prosecutor’s office said a preliminary investigation uncovered two handguns inside the vehicle.

The spree of violent crime comes amid a spike in gun violence and homicides in the city.

When asked about what the city plans to do to combat crime in Newark, Police Director Eugene Venable told Sloan they’ve already put a plan to action.

“We put that plan out there already. I told you we have 115 police officers out here and as a result of that, that’s why we were able to make an apprehension today,” Venable said.

The five suspects, who appear to mostly be juveniles, have not yet been formally charged, the prosecutor’s office said.

Naturel, Cam’ron, Yung Jake and Va$htie join the Hpnotiq Comeback

Picture the scene: Jay Z, Slim Shady and P Diddy are on the stereo, they’re probably still being played off a CD as no one’s figured out yet how to hook up their brand new brick of an iPod to the system. There’s the odd Phat Farm, Sean John or Rocawear vest in the crowd and some guys have turned up in baggy bottoms. Meanwhile, in everyone’s glass, there’s this bright blue liquid, someone’s added champagne to theirs, while others have it with cognac and are calling it “the Incredible Hulk” because it’s gone green and it packs a punch.

The drink is Hpnotiq and with a y2k revival around the corner (at least in the world of fashion, possibly…), the reemergence of the French vodka and cognac liqueur that became a staple of parties and clubs up and down America seems pretty appropriate. Like all great comebacks, there’s usually a bit of an update to get with the times. However, Hpnotiq is choosing instead to play the nostalgia card, enlisting hip-hop artist Cam’ron, visual artist Naturel, rapper and artist Yung Jake, and New York-based DJ and entrepreneur Va$htie Kola as part of a comeback “class of 2001.”

With a new look redesigned by Naturel, playing off the artist’s trademark neo-Art-Deco mixed with pop art and cubism look, old-school flip cell phones, signature shades and tongue-in-cheek gold chains wrap around the signature bell-shape Hpnotiq bottle.

Head over to Hpnotiq or check out their Instagram for some classic cocktail recipes and get down with “the aughts.” Follow #Since2001 to stay in the loop.
