Emmanuel Adebayor celebrates another Tottenham goal - under Tim Sherwood

While AVB was in charge at White Hart Lane, the 29-year-old struggled to find first team action.

However, since Sherwood took over the striker has become first choice at Spurs netting six goals in all competitions.

Adebayor said: "I know Tim quite well, so for me, to be honest with you, I was impressed because I know the manager, the person, the personality.

"I know what he can bring into the club and we all see what he has brought into the club.

"For me, he is an unbelievable man, a nice guy with a huge character.

"He has been there for me since day one and he just told me 'Adebayor, I know how good you can be, I know you can be a very important player for this squad and to fight for the team.

"If you fight for the team, the team will be behind you'.

"At the moment, this is what is happening and I am very happy."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
