'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wake up Emmanuel!!!

I could almost stop the article after the opening line and await the uproar from Spurs fans, and those who have watched what I consider to have been a terribly poor ACoN tournament, that I have described as being the quality of the Championship, only played in slow motion. It is a worry that our only fit and natural striker is claiming to be tired, just as a point when we need him most.

Speaking after Togo's elimination, Ade said: 'I'm still young, so whenever my country needs me I'll be up for it because I've started something and I have to finish it.

'We were stopped in the quarter-finals, maybe next time we'll be in the final and win it. So for me, it's never finished while I have the chance to win something. [The future] is looking good, with all the problems before coming to Afcon, and we've showed character, good face and showed we are a team that can play good football.

'I think I have done my best and physically I'm exhausted, but that's football. It's a tough one for all the players, for myself, for everyone, but life goes on.'

Of course it may well be just a throw away comment and one based on the disappointment if his countries exit from the competition, however, I'm sure I am not alone in wanting his next words to be about how much he is looking forward to rejoining Spurs and scoring the goals that secure us a top four place. If he is too exhausted to contribute his best for Spurs, perhaps he should tell Daniel Levy not to pay his wages until he feels refreshed enough to play a full and active part in our season. Now what are the chances of that happening...
