A Letter To Adebayor From The Manager ....  Lamela Watch.

 When all else fails then a good manager rather than resorting to his sword puts pen to paper in an endeavor to prove the modern day quill is mightier than the last resort sacking option.
.
  I mean even the legendary patience of Job ( manager of the Jacobites United mob) would be tested by the antics of the son of a well known elephant washer from downtown Toga.
.
  So no surprise this turned up in the Spurs Lodge player box marked Mr. Sheyi Emmanuel Adebayor to be completely accurate.

 Dear Emmanuel,
.


                       as you are well aware my office door is always open although in your case it would appear frequent relocation to the four corners of the world would seem necessary to allow for at the very least rudimentary communications
.
 A flying desk perhaps. South Africa, Togo and lots of points in between here and London spring to mind.
.


                      I well remember how excited you were setting off for the African Cup but also assuring us you would be back as soon as possible. Yes of course we understood your difficulties in returning. Even I would have trouble with a flight schedule in Swahili.
.
 Yes air travel can be confusing at times even when you have your own personal jet.Good pilots and staff are hard to find these days as you say. How many multilingual pilots are there. How many can read maps.
.


                    Still you escaped from that five star hotel in Johannesburg only to get lost on the way to the airport. We here at Spurs Lodge understood that could happen to anyone. We were not worried in the least given your departing sentiments of a quick return to us.
.
  Well yes international travel is fraught with difficulty of course. Mind you made it home eventually but then had some other issues. Still you did get to play again last season, I think.
.


                   A new season dawned, a new resolve given your protestations of being top dog striker .Off we all went to Hong Kong. Not a roaring success I grant you . A break from London routine and an exciting season for most of us to look forward to.
.
  Yes Manny I know Bobby joined us, yes Erik too, Paulinho and Christian, Etienne. Nacer ....quite a lot of competition indeed. Everyone was so excited, training together and then terrible misfortune struck.
.


                  The very unfortunate death of your brother Peter was doubly tragic training wise. A meaningful pre season went out the window.I had no hesitation in endorsing the club's granting you extended compassionate leave ,nor the further extension and the one after that.
.


                  Never mind a complete lack of pre-season. Never mind what seemed a previous attitudinal problem re-emerging. Arsenal, Man City anyone. Of course I thought having a run with the kids might be useful. Oops after that more injury problems.
.


                 Where to go from here. I mean we tried travel brochures from Turkey and others in the summer. No Manny was determined to fight for his place. Such bad luck with aeroplanes, injuries and life in general. Seems all too much for you .
.


                 Perhaps as they say in Portugal ...
.

        

                             "A preuica e a mae detodos visios"  ... Laziness is the mother of all vices.


                             " Burros velhos etc ... You can lead an elephant to the well but... you know the rest.
.

 But perhaps we should stay positive  ....


                            "Mas vale tardedo que munca" ... Better late than never.


Please come back to Spurs Lodge ... the old Emmanuel Adebayor.


         Sincerely yours


                                 Andre.

Lamela Watch At A Kent Pub.
.

 Our pub like nearly all of you have never lost hope that our Argentinian superstar will come good. Okay one swallow on a late European autumn night does not make it anywhere near the finished product.
.

 However the you tube glide, the dribbling trickery, the close control in traffic and even a goal were all on display against FC Sheriff. Let's hope he has a big chunk of time (starting?) against Newcastle at the Lane Sunday.
.

 More certain of a start is our birthday boy. Actually Vlad the Impaler was born on this day in 1431. Our man Vlad Chiriches is only 23 but like Lamela starting to settle and threaten.
.

 Cheers .... That's Amore .. Thats Lamela ... Greg Meyer.    coys.

Well it's either Erik's goal or Nirvana with Smells like Teen Spirit. Not much on offer for Lamela's goal yet so Nirvana it is. Has a certain relentless charm to it. Nirvana not Lamela. Captures the spirit of Spurs in the 90's. No perhaps not, we didn't get that down did we?
.
 Anyway currrently my favourite Spurs player  and my favourite Nirvana track. Might even start on Sunday? Lamela not Nirvana.

Chiriches will be a wonderful, free spirit in this methodical Spurs team - a David Luis with intelligence. Lamela needs to beef up but shows technique that will be a huge assistance to alleviate the slow build up which is frustrating most Spurs fans at present. Lennon should not be discounted, but encouraged to have a go with more freedom, particularly running at the centre backs through the middle rather than receiving and passing back to a supposed creative midfield. He would soon become Soldados' soul mate rather than "pitching and putting" from the left wing, slowing down all of his attributes in the process. If we can now free up the creative spirits within a disciplined ball retention then we will challenge this year - the squad has the talent, get the chins off the floor.
