Adebayor: Was anyone saying boourns?

What do you do when your team is playing really badly and you personally are playing terribly? Attack the fans!


No! That's not what you do, unless your name is Emmanuel Adebayor. Tottenham Hotspur have now lost four out of their five home games, which is the opposite of good...bad, that's the word I was looking for. After losing to Stoke at the weekend, Adebayor gave an interview and said that his own fans booing is not nice. Have a choice quote.

"I think it might be better to play away from home at the moment because at least we know beforehand we are guaranteed to be booed because they want their home club to win. But when you are playing at home and your own fans start booing you after a few minutes then it is harder.”

This doesn't seem like a good idea from Emmanuel since nobody really likes him anyway. He then goes onto say it's not the players or the fans fault, so who's fault is it? It's probably Dapper Laughs because he's just awful. Settling in and adapting and all the usual nonsense are rolled out in the interview to explain why they are so bad, but perhaps Spurs just aren't that good? They are currently 12th in the league, let's look at their back four against Stoke. Naughton, Fazio, Kaboul, Rose. I would say 12th is about right for that defence.

So if you're a pissed off fan, to boo or not to boo, that is the question. I've supported Aberdeen for the 28 years of my life, so I have plenty experience of watching my team being absolutely shite. Perhaps try it in your every day life and see how you get on? Someone at work makes a fuck up, BOOOOOOOOOOOOO, right in their face. Your girlfriend refuses sex, BOOOOOOO. The cinema tries to charge you £20 for two large popcorns and two regular cokes, BOOOOOOO. Do you feel stupid? You should.
