The VMC Forum Community has narrowly voted the returning to form Emmanuel Adebayor as City's Man of The Match versus Pompey ahead of impressive Blues skipper Kolo Toure...
Kolo And The Gang are back in the groove and clearly Ade's world class finish from Stephen Ireland's perfectly weighted through ball sealed the giant striker's poll win this week.
There is no doubt about it that when in form, Ade gives City a crucial extra edge up front and the signs are there that The Togonator's enthusiasm for the game is slowly being rekindled.
He had greater urgency about him than we saw in December and the only criticism this correspondent can level at him is teh tendency to drift out left to retrieve teh ball if the service isn't coming in.
His cameo against the rags which led to El Apache's latest goal at the swamp was notable for his run drawing defenders away with him. As pointed out in the Pompey VMC Preview, Adebayor's role in the side will have a big impact upon The Citizens destiny this season.
Once again, Vincent Kompany's stunning form and the emergence of Steady Dedryk are recognised this week.
