You just knew it would happen. We fail to bring in a striker and sods law makes sure that we lose the only one we currently have available. Sure we have Adebayor thankfully returning from the terribly disappointing ACoN after Togo were knocked out last night, whilst The addition of Lewis Holtby not only adds creativity and energy in the supporting role, but it allows Clint Dempsey to push forward, but with only the inexperienced Harry Kane and the perhaps not quite good enough Jon Obika in reserve, the not buying a striker last month seems to have bitten us on the arse at the first opportunity.
It is suggested that once Defoe's strapping was removed yesterday the ankle blew up like a balloon, which is hardly positive and not only delays the ability to scan the injury, but also adds fear that it is a more serious problem and one that could take months and not weeks to recover. Sure Adebayor may well hit the ground running upon his return and being seen as the main man, even by default, may make him look a different player from the one we have seen so far this season, and if he can stay fit and firing, we might even become more productive, but relying on ifs are always a worry.
Although strikers do so much more than score goals, that is usually what they are judged upon and certainly in the case of someone like Jermain Defoe, his reputation stands or falls on how many times he hits the back of the net. Problem is of course that in recent weeks that simply hasn't happened. Of course we can look to his already problematic hip injury, however, does a Jermain Defoe playing and not scoring contribute more than Dempsey or Adebayor, even if their goals average wouldn't be better?
One goal in the last ten games, might have meant that he would at least force AVB to look to Adebayor and you do feel that if Adebayor can recapture the form of last season, we will actually look stronger as a team, just as long as he doesn't get injured...
