Recalling Emmanuel Adebayor to the starting line up has been Tim Sherwood’s best move so far in terms of goals, points and for stating his case to be the next Spurs manager. The Togolese striker – frozen out under AVB – came in from the cold and has three goals in two games heading into the crucial Christmas period.
Two of those strikes have been quite stunning, a fact not lost on the interim boss. Commenting on the first goal at St Mary’s Sherwood said,
“It was like a Go-Go Gadget leg! I saw it hit the net and it was a great feeling. He’s a top player.”
To be fair to Andre Villas-Boas, 2012-13 was a dismal season for the centre forward – eight goals in 33 games and at times he just didn’t look interested. However, if Ade stays fit, in form and interested then we might not have to write this campaign off after all.
