Why was Ade wearing that yellow t-shirt?

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

There's an all-new 'award' at Spurs Lodge - although Spurs Xtra is guessing that the players aren't exactly going to be queuing up for it!

The unofficial title is 'Plonker of the Week', and the inaugural winner, believe or not, was Emmanuel Adebayor!

The 'award' was to wear a bright yellow t-shirt with the name 'Plonker' on the back in training on Friday.

It's a lighthearted addition to training that the lads will all want to avoid.


Assistant boss Kevin Bond alerted Xtra to the new 'award' and happily explained what it was all about.

"Ade is the proud owner of the t-shirt because his performance in the five-a-side last Friday," beamed Kev. "Not only was he on the losing side, but he was voted the worst player by the winning team.

"I've got to say though, after today's performance, I don't see him getting it again this season!"

Ade, all smiles, took it all in good grace. "I'm just grateful for this t-shirt," he said. "As Kevin said, last Friday I wasn't myself (Kev cracks up next to him) and I was the worst, so I got this t-shirt."

"Not yourself?" laughed Kevin.

"Today I'm very happy," continued Ade. "As you can see I have this shirt, I scored a great goal and hopefully I won't have it any more!"

Xtra then pointed out to Ade that if he was the worst player last Friday, he still went on to score two goals in our 3-1 win at West Brom 24 hours later!

"Exactly!" he said. "So perhaps I will keep the shirt! Next Friday, I might just get it again!"
