Happy game day Spursland! It's another weekday game which all around sucks but a weekday game is better than no game at all. It has been a few years since Spurs have gotten full marks at Old Tradford; it hasn't happened since 1989, in fact. Let's just say I think we are due.
And now your pre-game "news"
Can the team cope without Modric? The jury is still out. They looked like killers against Hearts, but that's Hearts. I think we will have our answer to this question after tomorrow.
This makes no sense. City paid 25 million for this guy two years ago. Now they are so desperate to get rid of him they will offer him on a free? The reports before stated that the loan deal would include City paying a significant portion of Ade's wages. Now they are willing to give him away. I'd bet this deal, if it is real, won't go through. The free transfer means that we have to pay all of Adebayor's £170,000 a week wages. That is never going to happen. So unless Somebody is ready to write a huge check or Adebayor is ready to take a massive pay cut, this deal could be dead.
I understand Fergie's logic here. In my day job I deal with nothing but teenagers and I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that relying on them is always a safe bet that will never go wrong. I also am a compulsive liar.
