    I would be so angry if that was the sum total of his permanent career with us, purely because we know he can do so much better. He was unplayable for large parts of last season, one of the Premiership's best forwards not merely as a goalscorer but also as a creator. For him to go a whole season opting not to show us any of that vast talent... ugh.

    With Balotelli in Italy, someone has to up the antics level of the PL.

    I'm going to maintain that journalists, even at the Guardian, love the narrative of Adebayor as a lazy no-account who only tries when a contract renewal is on the line. And we don't actually know all the details here… someone complaining about a hotel bill, offering hearsay about private jets, etc. Haven't clicked on the link above, but I doubt it has much more detail.

    If Adebayor was the catastrophic fuckup the journos like to portray him as, I don't think he'd be in any matchday squad, and he'd be suspended by the club. The fact that we "need" a striker (during which time we've collected four points?) should not trump the club's disciplinary policy.

    TL;DR: CHILL THE FUCK OUT.

    I'd like to agree with you. The link above doesn't offer any hearsay though, it simply states he touched down late today and thus didn't train. His last game was four days ago. Doing the math, it does really seem something is amiss here.

    Alright chumps, what the fuck is all this Adebayor bullshit about?

    I've been at an aluminum engineering conference all this week and I'm fucking chomping at the bit to watch some Spurs. If Adebayor continues this shit I'll be seeking vigilante justice.

    Nelspruit - Johannesburg is like a one hour flight? Still don't like the story. Too ridiculous.

    Here is Kelvin0092's comment from this article. I'd appreciate it if someone could run it through google translate for me.

    "as a spurs fan...i see no reason why dis dude finks he's so bigger dan d clubside...yaya toure n co have arrived amid-st their current club state but our so called "senior striker" finks he's untouchable!..anywaiz dat serves AVB and Stupid Levy right 4 not getting a striker in the transfer market @least he wouldn't be full of himself now and 4 d records some players dont realize that pride comes before the fall. Ade you can s*** my d***. #rubbish!!!"

    what you mean is that you can't believe that there are people who are skeptical about second-hand media reports.

    you're not the only one making excuses & I don't blame you for being sceptical everyone knows what the media is like. It's just in some peoples minds it seems like he can do no wrong.
