Adebayor rarely played under Andre Villas-Boas who preferred to send out a team with just one forward.

Soldado, who moved to White Hart Lane from Valencia last summer, has sometimes struggled as a lone striker this season.

But following Villas-Boas' sacking, new manager Tim Sherwood has made more use of Adebayor, who has netted four times in his last five games.

And Rose said: "No disrespect to Andre but playing one up front has been a bit frustrating and hard for Soldado at times.

"It is nice that he has got a bit of help up there with Adebayor.

"He has been like a new signing. He has scored four goals which is brilliant for us.

"Considering he didn't play a game from pre-season until a few weeks ago, his energy levels have actually been brilliant.

"There were no questions about his attitude during his first season under Harry Redknapp and I can't speak for last season because I wasn't here.

"When I came back pre-season, his attitude was fine.

"Obviously there was a bit of a disagreement between him and Andre but it is finished now and we are all grateful he is back in the team."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
