The press conference at the Spurs training ground this morning has revealed that our friend Emmanuel Adebayor is in fact on his way back to us.
…we’re trying to establish the best flight connections for him” AVB
Now at the risk of being accused of someone looking for problems, is the Togo time waster now trying to make out the place he’s staying in has no Internet? I was accused of running with a made up piece yesterday, by one or two. If you really want a cock and bull version of events then try reading this in Lancenet.
In which there is an invented tale of Ade making it to the airport, seeing that their booked flight made an additional stop at Johannesburg which Ade & Co. thought would …yes you’ve guessed it, waste time. So our hero Emmanuel supposedly hired a private jet, which he paid for there and then out of his own back pocket. What a load of manure. Why isn’t he back yet then?
Illuminating comparisons can of course by made by seeing who else travelled from the Premier League to the African Cup Of Nations and when they got back, if they were fit etc.
On Eunice Kaboul and the Midget Gem there were decent updates, the Frenchman will resume some class of training from Monday:
It’s going to be his first training session since August so we have to be very careful… He has to catch up, but with the tremendous willingness he has to come back, hopefully within 2 to 3 weeks.”
On Defoe, his ankle will mean he’s out again, for two or possibly three weeks:

It’s good news in the end because it could have been further damage to his ankle.”
