Don't laugh when I say this. Adebayor could be one of the most dangerous footballers on this planet. I really mean it. No, I haven't been smoking da cronic or sipping on some hennessy. The Togo Kid could be one of the most feared players in the universe, but he has to want it.
It's no good him thinking he has made it already. He hasn't. Sure he has cash in his pocket but should that be enough for a man who could go on to become one of the best? I think he believed he had made it but has come round to the fact he hasn't. And that he could. Cuckoo.
I've given Ade a lot of stick this season. And rightly so. The money-grabbing basta.....I was one of his staunchest supporters last season though. And I want that Ade back. The one who grafts and chases a lost cause. The Ade who shits the life out of John Terry and makes him cry. The Dancing Ade.
Yes, Ade has been a bit of Togo Tosspot this campaign but I'm starting to think that he has turned the corner. Maybe putting ice on his swollen head has helped but there is no doubt an in-form Adebayor is a massive plus for Arsenal.
Maybe Ade has seen the light. He got his £4,890,732 a week contract but perhaps finally he has got the message. Strolling round the Emirates, arms flying everywhere will not win him many friends but the hard-working Ade we saw last season will.
Seeing his Cro-Zillian team-mate may have hit home some truths for Ade. While he appeared to take his talent for granted Eduardo was busy trying to save his career. And he is loved for it. Ade could do with some of Eduardo's humility, perhaps he has.
I hope we see more of the Adebayor we saw on Saturday. Believe me, he could become the biggest threat in world football. But he has to want it. And not just make his wallet fatter.
Keep it Goonerish............
