I have already commented on Adebayor's late return from the Africa Cup.
If you recorded the game, take a look at his reaction on Bale scoring his wonder goal against the hammers. He just turned away as if the ref had awarded a goal kick. You would think that Bale scoring a late winner and earning 3 vital points would have him #$%$-a-hoop, but no.
Now take a look at the late goal that kept us in europe, same reaction. You could excuse it if it was just his laid back character, but I remember him running the length of the pitch to taunt arsenal fans when he scored for city.
I have heard people accuse Benni of not caring, but he is always one of the first to congratulate and celebrate our goals, whereas Adebayour couldn't care less.
The sooner we get rid the better, arogant merceniery git.

Truely great players play the game because they love it and they would play even if they got just enough money to survive. Truely great players have a passion for the game to sit alongside some sublime skills. You certainly can't put Ade in that category. It is the same with him wherever he goes, he starts off really well as if he has something to prove, but very soon he goes back to his real self. Slightly lazy and uncommited.
Even when he trying very hard at the start of his time with any club I would not say he is great. His hold up play is average, his long range shooting is non existent, he misses too many relatively simple chances, he seems to be on the back foot all the time (as already mentioned) and he is not as good in the air as he should be given his height.
So, based on that Fab, I can't agree that Ade would ever have been regarded as a truely great player.
In fact, why have we got him again??

Uo to 4 Re's so this'll be the last word! (This will be like a game - who posts last).
To be perfectly honest, I don't care about not celebrating or kissing badges or taking your shirt off to show a message saying blah... I'd just like to see a player stay and play well.
I'm a bit jaded by all the '...it was my childhood club .... It's like a dream come true to play for...' and then buggering off as soon as a better pay packet comes along.
BAE I like - others don't - but he does ok for me. OK, he may not like football, but he's served us well. If Ade can (or wants to) turn this spell around, then I'll be happy - even if he never celebrates a goal again.
Sunday eh though? If Daffy's fit, who would you then play? I think I would give Ade the first 45-60 and then switch if it didn't work.

Well I hope it is a "spell", but if he can't get excited with late winners I don't expect him to battle back to form any time soon. I anticipate he will be moving on at season's end and the question will be "did he leave or was he pushed".

I'll give you that he appears to have a track record of it, but I like his 'style' when playing well. He holds the ball up well (he didn't against WH admittedly), brings others into play and scores.
I prefer that style to the out and out striker like Daffy personally.
So I suppose I'm hoping that his track record isn't how he'll be with us and that this lean spell is just that, a spell.
