Wake up Emmanuel!!!

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...

it is very easy to read negativity into his comments. If he had had a great tournament and had been on fire for Spurs prior to going, we would be all concerned for our tired hero and complaining about the stupid ACoN scheduling as opposed to the player making excuses. What I want to hear next though is some big words about how much he is looking forward to getting back in a Spurs shirt and scoring the goals to secure our CL place.

A bit harsh considering temp in South Africa were approx 30 degrees plus most days. I watched a few matches and attended one for the give away price of 10 pounds... It was obviously given to SA as we were in the best position to take it after the cancellation but there was very little marketing or advertising etc leaving the stadiums very empty and no real atmosphere... A far cry from the amazing world cup in 2010. Im not surprised Ade did not make any impression as not one single player stood out in what can only be described as avg football at best...

Well if he's on £150k a week he's so far he's cost us (and perhaps City) nearly £300k per appearance and £1.75m per goal! He's definitely not a long-term AVB option certainly in terms of mentality - but he needs to knuckle down and start performing for us NOW. We need him.

i'm sure he feels emotionally flat after being knocked out in the QF's... I know we need him as our only other striker is injured (as though we didn't all know that!) but I can't help thinking it might have been better to loose him for another week, have him score the winner in the final and come back a hero and filled with pride. What we're getting back is someone who sounds like he needs anti-depressants. Think of your wage Ade, that should cheer you up mate. I know it would certainly cheer me up if it was my wage!

I guess we're now in the situation where we only have Ade and Walker to moan at (now Defoe is injured). I think Spooky said (over at DML) that there is a certain type of Spurs supporter that has to have someone to blame it all on, though I have heard it said that it's a team game, and that the manager picks the team. My prediction for the next scapegoat is Parker - because he REALLY let us down before his injury ........

I for one am still a fan. Yes he's been a shadow of the player that turned our attitudes towards him last season but- (has been said over and over) no pre season injured after a couple of games etc.... He was playing with Defoe in a different role,not that it's an excuse for a pro footballer to not perform. But hopefully as already stated, him up top on his own with Holtby (oh my god could have knocked one out over what i've seen so far!!) in behind a la VDV could kick start his Spurs career again. Lets show our support for the big man even though i along with the rest have agonised at his inability to hit a cows backside with a banjo this season! His ability to hold up and generally bully defenders is something we have missed in the last few so come on Ade lets start by putting them geordie tab smerkers back in their place COYS!!!!

Let me suggest what is really exhausting. It is the media taking every little sentence that a player says or a manager and making it the central theme for an article. Now we are doing it also. People say things which are stock phrases. Most have no meaning beyond that moment in time. Please let's not have a hundred comments on how lazy Ade is and how little he contributes in games. Give it a rest.

Playing on a horrible pitch in africa in 30+ degree heat is not the same as playing in europe so it is no suprise he is exhausted.

Let's look at the ACN as his pre-season...he'll fly back 1st class has almost a week to rest....he knows he's got the control back in his hands...I suspect he'll start on the bench giving Andre his chance to reward Holtby by playing him behind Dempsey who he'll show 'faith' with...I however, would start Ade, think the warm weather training will have done him good...

I don't and never did think (Ade & Defoe) the two of them on the same pitch together worked, after all when Ade was playing on loan for us he was the main striker and Defoe was on the bench, Ade brings a lot to the side, when his on his game, he has good movement, creating space for others, only problem was when he did this Defoe was standing in his way. Again we have 13 games to go, like i mentioned with regards to Scott Parker, Ade needs to step up a few gears, he worked well with VDV, let judge and jury decide once he has the chance to play with our young VDV aka Lewis Holtby, you never know in football, these two together could be something very special, I don't for one minute think Ade plays football to look a complete twa7, some say it's the money, well he don't need that, his most likely got plenty, what he needs is some TLC and goals.

Latest reports are of Adebayor slating Didier Six publicly. Basically saying he (Adebayor) is the main man and cant do everything. There is still the pre ACN issue to sort out regarding AVB stance on him attending the ACN. Adebayors comments were he was going to see Levy on his return. Don't like this man. Don't like his wages, don't like his attitude and don't like the fact he knows and we know we are now reliant on him. Should never have signed him and it will all end in tears.

When we had him on loan last season I remember an Arsenal supporter making the comment that Ade was always good in his first season with a club, then the problems began. I hope he was wrong but am concerned. The frustrating thing is he has all the attributes to be a top centre forward, its just a mental thing.

jacobslad it is a bit of a worry however Ade has not been horrendous, only a little disappointing. He knows he needs to convert goals and I suspect when he signed there was a few in house rules that were put on him from the top. Ade is a player who does not like management, he does however love glory, self glory and the crowd when they cheer him. A player of this nature is hard to control yet easily motivated. i'm not sure of the stats but I believe we played pretty poor during the Defoe and Ade combo and as usual our fans hack at the players. Players hear it and perhaps we should cheer our 'mercenary' like other clubs do theirs...

"The coach was not a help," the Tottenham Hotspur forward said. "Me, I was on the pitch, so I couldn't do his job and mine, I couldn't coach and play. I tried to do my best, but he didn't help us."

Seems to me Ade is a complex character to read. At this moment in time we actually need him more tha he needs us and he will know that. Question is will that be good or bad for us? Last season he needed us because he was playing for a contract, this season he has the contract and has played less well. Are the two things connected? Who knows with him, but a fired up Ade playing well is a handful and we need it badly now through to the end of the season.

I agree, dissappointing comments from Ade, but, I think the tournament is still fresh in his mind and it's just dissappointment on his part that Togo did not proceed further. Hopefully he will be back in training by Thursday and his international playing will have sharpened him up for the rest of the season and put the goal hungry beast back into his belly. If there is a time to step up to the plate, it's now. We need to keep pressure on the 3rd place and ALL the players need to give 110% for the rest of the season..COYS

Yidmarks you are absolutely spot on with your staring 11. That is our best available selection for this weekend. I'm not going to comment on the Ade comments as I am hoping it is just a throw away comment. I am expecting him to be really up for the game on Saturday. Anything less than 100% from him and I not be the slightest bit hesitant to vent my feelings towards him.

Glad to see some positive comments about Ade, on his day he is one of the best strikers in the league. If we get behind him for the next few games i'm sure he'll come good. We are about to enter a tricky run of fixtures and with BAE, Kaboul (if he ever returns from injury), Parker and Adebayor all relatively fresh we could get a few good results. It's the business end of the season and we are well positioned. Performances haven't always been that great but we still haven't played our strongest team (I agree with Yidmarks but with Sandro and Kaboul for Parker and Dawson). Hopefully this means there is so much more to come. There are a lot of doom and gloom comments on here sometimes (ok, all of the time) but I can honestly say that this is the most excited I have ever been as a Spurs fan.

Exhausted? He didn't start his season until mid-Septmber. He's been away with Togo for 3 weeks when he's played 4 games which is no more than his colleagues here have played in his absence. He has no excuse for being tired unless of course the weight of his head means he gets more tired than the average human being as he has to carry it around on his shoulders. Exhausted my arse. Try a real job for 40+ years and then tell me you're tired in your mid-20's on over a £100k per week. before your retire into the lap of luxury at the age of 34. Fecking footballers! Rant over.

If AVB can get Adebayor playing as he did last season, we only need him in there for 60 minutes every game anyway. It'd be nice to just get ahead in some matches so that players could be rested and so that some, who need game time could get that time on the pitch. He was bright and electric and then stupid in the Arsenal match. If AVB can just get him to come out and give that level of effort (leave tackling to others) game in and game out, we'll be fine. To be fair, he has been through a fairly difficult period fighting with his association, then playing then apparently fighting with the coaching staff. His comments at least show a player who wanted to win. He did leave out the fact that if he'd been a little more clinical, there would have been no need for extra time, but then, nobody's perfect. COYS

Two basic thoughts:

First, one shouldn't take completely at face values what one says at moments of great disappointment. The man had just lost an important match for his country on a late goal on a poor pitch and in a match with a sketchy referee. This result after a contentious lead-up to the cup competition with negotiations with his federation and country. And this after an experience with his national team in Angola in which some bandit political group has attacked the team bus and killed and wounded teammates in front of Adebayor. One might interpret his words in the context of this lengthy series of horrors and disappointments ending in a disappointing loss in the quarter finals.

Second thought: Adebayor has a history that suggests that he is a very complex man. I wrote on this site against taking him on loan from Man City two summers ago. Many disgreed with me then, saying that we should not forego getting on loan a player of such obvious skills, but I wrote that I worried about his history of becoming alienated from previous clubs. We all knew about that history. Well, he came and he shone for the most part in his season on loan here. Statistically he had the best season for a striker that Spurs have had for a long time. People write about Berbatov as our best recent striker, but Berbatov never has a season statistically as good as Adebayor had last season (he he was jobbed by poor officials on a couple of offsides calls made in error, which would have led to even more stellar statistics). He played well off the ball, be came back on the pitch in support of his mates, and looked everything to good citizen. I wrote on this site that I may well have been wrong in my words of caution against his being brought on.

So, on the strength of his stellar performence, our club took him on, we changed from a loan and made him ours by contract.

And nothing has been the same since. We can debate about what caused his diminished performance since signing on with us as ours, in place of being a loanee. He arrived after the training period a bit out of shape. He never quite got into shape. He has played a different role than in the first year here when he was sole striker up front. This time he played with Defoe in a partnership that most of the time seemed to get in the way of both men on the pitch. (I'm not at all clear that this lack of coordination was Adebayor's fault, it may well have been more down to Defoe, but that's best left to a different thread.) He has looked less energetic for the most part this season than last. His first touch never has been his strength and that's seemed even more the case this season that last.

The one match where he seemed to come out "with all guns blazing" this season was at Arsenal, where his personal history gave him amplified motivation, and he left us in a lurch with an early red card (which seemed overly harsh to many, but he did take a great risk with silly aggressive play that led to the card.) Since then, he's looked even more out of sorts and lethargic.

So finally, we must recognize again this history as a complicated fellow. Should we indulge this a bit in the wake of his African disappointment? Perhaps send him to a posh spa for three days to recharge his battery and get daily massages with sexy masseuses and twice a day mud batchs? Of should should our coaches shout him awake in a brutal introductory training session. I'm sure many supporters would prefer the later, but wouldn't anything in that direction only drive him deeper into alienation? A luxury spa, you say? Popplycock and worse. But perhaps this complex man would respond well to a bit of ostentatious love on his return. Perhaps he needs to be seduced and coaxed. Perhaps with some sweet talk when he returns to London, we could coax something resembling the on-loan Adebayor. Beats me. The man is one complex fellow who needs something special to be special.

One needs some patience, I think, after signing this man on, and he won't respond well to a place that castigates him. Great him warmly since he's here whether we're all thrilled about that fact or not. (Or, abandon all formations that use a striker and start playing some del Bosque inspired formation with the name I dare not utter yet again.)

Peace and love, me bredrin.

peterballb Adebayor was actually only good in the first 3 months
January onwards he did nothing ,his first touch was dreadful then & didn`t go unnoticed by some posters .

Levy needs to leave the scouting to someone else imo .To someone with a better trained eye they would have known he was not worth risking .Even with his attitude during the summer Levy should have pulled the plug .AVB clearly does as he`s told because many of his signings were already coming or on the cards .

Adebayor is a very naive signing .Levy will undo all his own good work unless he gets the right people in to do the transfers in a more professional manner .Maybe he doesn`t trust anyone elses judgement ,but maybe he should start to .Can`t be a DOF & chairman in one go

it seems that we had agreed a fee for leandro before the brazilian club changed their mind at the last minute. certainly AVBs comments suggest that he feels aggrieved by the situation and reading between the lines I believe that he probably spoke to the player quite a bit and was let down at the end. The fact that Leandro publicly thanked spurs for the interest is very unusual and suggests that there was a lot more going on behind the scenes than we know.
