Well you could have knocked me down with the proverbial feather today when I took a look at NewsNow Of all the potential transfer targets Tottenham have been linked with this close season this one has to be the wildest of the lot,and then some.
Apparently we have placed a bid with Man City of around twenty two million pounds for the services of Adebayor.Now I’m going to be honest here and admit that I would love him at Spurs,ye s I know he’s got the Arsenal millstone hanging around his neck but I’m not one to hold grudges,and if he could help us end the search that we’ve endured for quite some while now regarding that lone front man,whilst at the same time adding too our clubs continuous forward momentum then I’m all for it.after all his record of scored forty six goals in one hundred and four appearances for Arsenal between 2006/2009,and fourteen in twenty six games since joining Man City works out at nearly a goal every other game which is pretty effective.Then of course there’s the rest of his game to take into account as he has all the obvious talents we have been looking for, IE,good at holding the ball up and bringing others into play,great in the air,which is no bad thing if other rumours are true and Crouchinio is leaving,then there is his most unnatural way of ghosting in on the blind side of defenders to either create a goal or get one for himself.
Although with hopes set to one side for a minute,and in all seriousness I can’t really see this one happening due partially to whats seems an ever present stumbling block these days,players wages.Apparently he’s on about one hundred and fifty thousand pounds a week,now why would he move too a club to take a drop of at least half that amount,even if he were to be guaranteed playing time which I’m confident is an assurance Harry wouldn’t be able to give him anyway.Unless of course he sees us as the perfect vessel to prove a point to Arsene in which case you might well see Adebayor in Lillywhite.
So what say you my friends,would you be able to get over the Arsenal connection,after all there’s no love lost between them anymore after the less than magnanimous departure to Man City.Or is it just that bridge to far?
