I think that firstly, fans who got ‘enraged’ by the recent Real Madrid article about Adebayor should calm down immediately. Adebayor was not the one who wrote the article so you should not take it out on him in the form of singing ‘that song’ just that little bit louder on Wednesday. It’d be no good for anyone and would prove the Spurs cotton-wool stance to fan behaviour as necessary.
And even though it is annoying to see that masked Madridista rub it in, the statistics on his goals against us are accurate.
Now I’ll just slide my tush to the other side a little bit….
I’ll start with what will really be White Hart Lane’s worst nightmare on Wednesday. Our worst nightmare will be going down to ten men again. Madrid’s worst nightmare will be Lennon I think. Missing the first leg may have forced Lennon to put twice as much into the second leg where he shall be featuring, sudden illness or not!
Lennon will be drawing fouls from Marcelo like there’s no tomorrow. Let’s see Marcelo’s smug little face when he gets a red card for not knowing when he’s been skinned. It’ll be Crouch sitting on the floor shaking his fists then! This will of course distract three out of four Madrid defenders from Bale and Crouch, which will in turn open up the space for Thud, Modric and VDV to move into the centre and flood the box.
With all that said, if Madrid score one goal, it’s curtains.
There. I think that’s a more objective preview of Wednesday. There’s this outrageous sense of self-entitlement which oozes from other European clubs, even moreso than Chelsea and United which is probably the motive behind the Adebayor ego-massaging piece we’ve just seen.
Just ignore it and let the talking be done on Wednesday.
The actual game is our focus, not Real Madrid’s fans.
