Emmanuel Adebayor

Recommended Posts

Under Sherwood Adebayor has scored something like 14-15 in 24 but he had better players around him doing that than he would currently have at Villa Park. You also have to remember the dearth of service to Benteke here who nevertheless made several of his goals himself. I do not see Adebayor doing that.

The signing of Adebayor to me would therefore stink of the cheap option again if we brought him in on a loan even with paying him high wages. He is exactly at the same stage of his career now as Bent was when we got rid so we'd be substituting one over paid player at the tail end of his career for another.

This is the type of signing made under previous managers and we need to get away from it now or we simply won't progress.

However i've an awful feeling in my gut that Adebayor will be in a Vila shirt by the end of the week and if this is so it must be on a loan and definitely without any fee or contract being involved so we can walk away from it at the end of the season. Anything else and it will make our club a laughing stock.

Ha! Hope you are right about him mate but I really don't want him anywhere near our club. Should feck off to America for one last big pay day instead of using us.

Depends who supplies the chances - we still need creativity around him .

He will score goals without doubt .

Those knockers now will be cheering to the heavens once he bangs a few in soccer-player-dancing-smiley-emoticon.gi

Could be spot on Morp,just like Bent,Holte etc.....back end of career,seems a nonsense to me.Good at 24-27,not now.He's coming,just hope he makes me eat my words!

Not you specifically Rust, but he was popping goals in for fun when Sherwood was in charge at Tottenham, wasn't an eternity ago.

Difference between Bent and Ade is that Bent used to have a bit of pace about him that helped him, Ade never had nor ever needed pace

Quality player, if Sherwood trusts him great he knows him well enough. As far as the financial side is concerned i would like to think we will be ran far better than we have been so i'll not concern myself with that unless in another couple of years we are shopping in League 1 for our 1st team again.

Sherwood's looking abroad for a striker.

If Adebayor comes in on a short deal, taking a pay cut, along with a promising European talent then I would be happy enough.
