Hardly words that would usually be associated with Emmanuel during his career, but for the next few weeks, I wonder if it could well be true.
Before you stop reading this for laughing or thinking I have lost my mind, just wait and read a little more. Our next three games are against Maribor, Man City and Arsenal, with our two domestic oppositions sure to spark Adebayor into life, like no other. Take the Europa game and it could well be a game that he feels he has to perform to justify a start in the league games and a fit and fired up Adebayor can be unplayable. Just what Spurs need to reignite the fire in the whole clubs belly.
Assuming he doesn't go down with another bug or pull something painful, I would be shocked to see Adebayor not start on Thursday and could this be a game where he see's an additional supply from Iago Falque, another player with a point to prove and who knows, his physical presence may well bring the best out of either Dempsey or Sigurdsson, who have both looked a little lost so far in their Spurs career's and maybe the addition of a target man to hold the ball up and naturally look to bring others into play, will be just what they need to find their own form and confidence.
Whatever Wenger or Mancini will think of Jermain Defoe, they will also know that facing the prospect of Emmanuel Adebayor in the mood for revenge is a prospect to bring fear to any defensive line and what would a win on Thursday and at least 4 points from City and Arsenal do for the morale amongst the Spurs faithful and also the confidence in the team as a whole?
To hail him a saviour before he has started a single game this season might be premature or even stupid, but when you think about it and look at the opposition we face in the next three games and would you really want any other striker to be spearheading your attack in the next three games? Long term saviour, probably not, but a saviour of our season and short term health, I have a feeling that Emmanuel will be chomping at the bit to prove a few people wrong, settle a few scores and re-establish himself as a first choice striker at the same time...
