Harry On The Importance Of Signing Ade

Harry On The Importance Of Signing Ade



City striker Emmanuel Adebayor's career twists and turns are about to see him thrust into the London spotlight once again. Over to Harold Redknapp to calm the waters...

'Arsenal fans hate him so Tottenham fans will love him. He's got an advantage by upsetting them. He'll be a hero.'

Judging by what we witnessed at City early doors after Mark Hughes signed him, the Togolese forward has the potential to have a huge impact which could result in the player proclaiming love between himself and the Spurs fans. Similar sentiments were expressed in Madrid during his last loan spell. Harry again:

'If he comes and his head's on, he can be fantastic. It's a loan deal anyway, so you can't go wrong. He was fantastic against us for Real Madrid, we couldn't handle him. If he's at it and really wants to play then he could be sensational.'

He's not wrong there. Adebayor's infamously berkish Eastlands charge towards the Arsenal support after scoring, not dissimilar to a Thierry Henry Highbury Spurs stare out, underlines his leaning towards the hatstandish that Mancio would never tolerate. Redknapp said:

'He rang me after I stuck up for him. I said he shouldn't have run to the fans but they were giving him almighty abuse all game. What are you supposed to do? You stick it up them, which is what he did.'

Ouch! In later months, Adebayor received tremendous support from Manchester City throughout terrible circumstances despite his inability to reach the level of consistent team effort demanded by Roberto Mancini. It's hoped in Manchester that he will remember that fact the next time he speaks to the press. But the signs aren't good. He's already refused to train at Carrington since the squad re-assembled.

However, his presence back in the Premier League is sure to add spice to an already promisingly competitive season.

I wonder can 'Arry teach him the offside rule. Although 'Arry will probably doing some time at her majesty's pleasure in the not too distant future so it'll be left to Joe to teach him. Hope this happens in time for him to play on Monday night, he'll be well up for a trip to the swamp to prove his doubters his wrong I reckon.

Adebayor scoring the winner for Spurs at the swamp would be utterly priceless, but somehow can't see it happening due to his lack of match sharpness. I genuinely hope he does well for Tottenham so they'll take him off our hands permanently, but I fear it will all end in tears for them - always seems to where Adebayor is concerned.
