Adebayor bigger than Modric

Actually Adebayor is bigger than everybody.
Greg  focuses on important matters here. Not quite what Thierry Henri had in mind when he famously remarked that 'size matters'. His slogan for tomorrow is, 'Kevin Davies: can we fix him? Yes we can!'  We are all  determined to put Wednesday behind us and let's hope the club does too.

Adebayour Bigger Than Modric ... According To.
Kevin Davies is all that stands between Spurs and second place come late Saturday afternoon, London time. Later on Manchester time, a certain United mob should keep the seat warm for us after beating Villa away.
.
Think Bolton and our pub invariably think Sam Allardyce and Kevin Davies. Both very obdurate characters. The former best known for his non-stop gum chewing. The other for inconveniently placed elbows and against Spurs inconvenient goals. Still there has been a climate change at Spurs since those days.
.
Convenient that we now seem to have belief. Thrown in a run of winnable games and the New Year is very scary. More altitude sickness looms. A convenient truth perhaps. Spurs going for the title.
.
So whilst Bolton are hardly a one man team ,surely with Kaboul's physicality and the knowhow of Spurs Mr. Serene alongside him then Davies should be sufficiently contained. Goals should flow from a returning Van Man, possibly Bale and with his finishing boots on this week an in form Adebayour.
Adebayour has scored seven goals in ten League starts. So lets revisit that headline.
,
 Adebayour Was Signed and Modric Was Retained. 
.
 Our lawyer makes the case that we can win without Modric(West Brom) but not without Adebayour (PAOK). Yes overly simplistic. Both are superstars.One is a water carrier and the other usually a finisher. Indeed Ade manages to finish lately using the goalkeeper as a wall pass. Remember the penalty. Remember the scuffed second off Carson against Brom.
.
 Spurs have a midfield of riches galore. The envy of many including Chelsea and in Bale's case Barcelona. However the PAOK game at home no less, against 10 men no less, showed less is true as to our strike force. Defoe is usually and lately useful. Not so on Wednesday. Harry, no first touch, Kane. An ambling and amiable Russian .  Unfortunately none in Ade's league.
.
 Back to that headline. If Adebayour is injured our chase for fourth let alone the top job looks mortally wounded. So yes he is bigger than Modric. Of course if Mr. Levy had not kept Modric then Adebayour would possibly have not signed. As well other jewels in the crown including the boy Bale might have started looking to other horizons. It is a team game and currently Spurs have a team full of spirit.
.
 Of course if Arsenal lost Van Persie, Liverpool misplaced Suarez, Rooney got lost in space, and City had no Aguerro then the Spurs plight would not look so bad. Yes I know Chelsea are in the race but on performances lately they have already lost Torres, Drogba, Anelka and Lukaku. Metaphorically speaking in part.
.
 Back in the real world the result in Europe on Wednesday was treated very philosophically...
.
 At A Kent Pub.
.
 Our banker deemed it boring whilst our cabbie enjoyed Modric and shuddered at the efforts of another Lee Barnard. Sorry Harry but apart from the anonymous first touch there were portents of Sandra Redknapp in that missed header.
.
 Better news is the paper talk of us signing Jan Vertonghen. A 24 year old Belgian Centre Half, currently captaining Ajax. Looks the goods and touted Arsenal and Barcelona interest means he may be some way ahead of Bongani Khumalo. Another anonymous buy and currently on loan to Reading.
 .
If you are grappling with those names then think back to last week. Chelsea were rumoured to be signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel. No we are not making it up. Currently a striker with Sporting CP in Portugal.
.
Lets hope Christmas comes early at the Lane tomorrow.

 Christmas Cheers ... Maria Callas would be 88 toaday  ... Greg Meyer.      coys.

Video spot: Nothing football related from Maria but here's Nessun Dorma (None shall sleep). This is the 'Football' version as it was used as the theme of the 1990 World Cup in Italy. Sung by Pavarotti. Nobody sleeps when Luciano sings or when Spurs are on song.

What complete rubbish.

Usually I wouldn't waste my time posting against sh'te, but as I've wasted my time reading this sh'te, I thought why not waste more time writing my frustrations? At least I get the satisfaction of venting my displeasure at this cr@p.
