Is this Soldado’s time?

Posted on October 17, 2014 by Tony

With Emanuel Adebayor currently en route to London after captaining Togo  in their qualifying fixtures for the African Cup of Nations and with Tottenham facing a trip to Manchester City in an early kick off, perhaps now might be the time to re-introduce Roberto Soldado to the first team. While many of our players have been away on International duty Soldado has had the opportunity to work with the remainder of the squad and to work on his fitness. No doubt he will have had the time to get in plenty of shooting practice and brush up on his link up play while Adebayor and Harry Kane have both been travelling thousands of miles, training and playing.

Mauricio Pochettino said when he faced the press that he does have some concern over the fitness of Nacer Chadli and Hugo Lloris though the odds seem in favour of them overcoming minor injury problems. Adebayor and Bentaleb are both on their way back but will still need to be assessed when they arrive before being considered for the journey north. There was some good news in that Kyle Naughton, who was thought to have suffered a relatively serious injury against Southampton, might now be available for selection again next week.

Might this be the perfect opportunity to resurrect Soldado’s Tottenham career after what has been a poor year by his standards?  we go to City with every expert predicting defeat there and that might just take the pressure off a little. the player himself must be desperate to be given the chance to show exactly what he can do, not in the midweek team which rarely includes our creative players, but in the team containing players like Eriksen and Lamela who can pick the locks and are learning to break with real pace in recent fixtures.

If Togo manage to find a way to win through to the ACN to be played in January we shall be without Adebayor for the best part of 6 weeks, better that we prepare for that possibility now, if Soldado is really not cut out for the English Premier League then preparation needs to begin soon for reinforcements.
