ADEBAYO FEATURES IN NORTHAMPTON PROGRAMME

5 October 2018

Elijah Adebayo is looking to get Town back amongst the goals this week as Northampton come to Town, but going forward hasn't always been his first priority.

For Fulham, the, now-forward-thinker, had turned out as a centre-half - as he tells Red Review in this week's programme. 

“Playing as a centre-back helped in two ways, really – I can think: if I was a defender now what would I do? It’s about reading situations and questioning whether I would do things opposition centre-backs are doing. I’m a striker now, and I just want to score goals.

“Even though I’m 6ft 3in, people might not think I’m the hardest worker, but I believe the work rate from the front helps the team straight away. If you’ve got three strikers, like we do, pressing and working hard, it’s going to be a nightmare for defenders because they’re just thinking: here he comes again.

“Once you’ve got that in your attackers’ mentality, the defenders think the job is going to be easier to day because I’ve got three centre-forwards who want to keep the ball in the opposition half.”

Elsewhere in the programme, Scott Twine answers silly questions including what his perfect Sunday is. 

In Phil Brown's notes, he follows on from his press conference to talk about the Manchester United Situation

"This, single-handedly, has changed the face of the modern-day game and if you allow it to spiral out of control it will destroy your club . However big or small, or where you fit in the food chain, IT NEEDS MANAGING.

"This brings me to the current situation at our club and, if we don’t all commit to a common goal – and I mean commit – we may as well all go home.

"A team is always full of individuals and it is the purpose of the manager to bring that all together – but even in the world of one of the world’s most powerful clubs in the business, we ‘ve witnessed Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba’s relationship become untenable."

We have regular features return such as Fifty Years On and our Youthful Info - and regular columnists all have their say on goings on at the club this week.
