Emmanuel Adebayor is the main feature in the latest issue of our official monthly magazine, Hotspur. And the big man is delighted with the quality he has joined at White Hart Lane.
Ade, who always seemed to score against us for his previous clubs, is now turning that firepower on our rivals. And his lively personality is providing a big lift to life at Spurs Lodge.
“Everything is good,” Ade tells us. “I am very happy to be here, doing what I am doing for Tottenham. I needed to find a club where I could feel appreciated again…I’m respected by my team mates and I love them all.
“It is too early to talk about top four. It will be tough but we have good players. In games we have the quality to keep the ball and that’s what we must do. Play to our strengths because they are there.”
And one lucky reader has the chance to win a pair of Adebayor’s signed match boots in our latest exclusive competition.
Goalkeeper Brad Friedel is also featured as he looks back on his determination to reach the Premier League while also providing an interesting view on the pressure piled on English goalkeepers these days.
Scott Parker talks about the two sides of Tottenham – our undoubted flair but also the ability to fight for the right to play our football.
He tells Hotspur: “We can play some lovely stuff and control games that way but we can also dig in, get our goals and go on to win.”
We catch up on Gareth Bale and Ledley King while snooker ace Matthew Stevens tells us why he loves Spurs, having been inspired by a certain former Scottish international who he met on a beach as a child.
Coach Joe Jordan takes over the hot seat to answer questions from readers about goals, playing at the Lane, Jimmy Johnstone…and losing his front teeth! Ossie Ardiles again presents his regular column, talking about the continuing Argentinian influence in the Premier League.
We find out more about our young midfielder Tom Carroll who remembers getting his first autograph – from the great Glenn Hoddle, no less. And Jake Livermore talks about his early days as an emerging player as he responds to Harry Redknapp’s confidence in him by staking his own claim for a regular place.
Harry himself shares his optimism now that the season is well underway and the points are stacking up. “We’re getting stronger and we’re getting better,” he says.
On the nostalgia side, we also look back on the careers of Martin Peters, Alan Gilzean, Martin Chivers, David Howells and John Scales.
It’s all in the November issue of Hotspur – the number one magazine for Spurs fans. On sale today.
