So many people can look at a face and interpret emotions. On Saturday, some suggested that Adebayor looked glum on the bench, but would have no doubt considered that he couldn't care less if he was laughing and joking. Sometimes people simply can't win, even if in the case of Adebayor, he might not deserve too taste personal victory. What I did feel when he came on the pitch was someone that was looking to perform and also perform with a smile on his face and effort from his body. Sure he didn't score and was his usual ungainly self at times, but he also offered us that physical extra that I believed we had been missing up to that point.
I sincerely hope that the club fined him the maximum two weeks wages and it would have been fully deserved. I also hope he is billed for the hire of the plane that the club arranged to get him home on time, or well on time, give of take three or so hours. Adebayor has clearly been unprofessional in his conduct, sadly however, did we really expect anything else? It again highlights the madness of international football in conflict with the domestic game and can clubs really expect players who have travelled halfway around the world to hit the ground full of running? Yaya Toure may well have come back early, but he looked out on his feel for City against Southampton. Then again, so did Gareth Barry, and he stayed at home…
What is now important is that Spurs and Adebayor start afresh and concentrate on what really matters, and that is securing a top four place, and you feel that Spurs are a lot better with Adebayor, that without him at the moment. This may well be a short term truce, as I have a feeling that neither AVB or Levy are men to forgive and forget in the medium to long term, however. They also know that for the good of the team, they need a happy and focussed Emmanuel Adebayor and perhaps Adebayor realises that for his own career, he needs to get his act together, as he probably can't afford another acrimonious parting and expect to retain his playing status in the game, even if he finds someone willing to retain in financially...
