    Is Defoe better than Adebayor?

    Defoe is the better goal scorer, but not a good team player ( but signs he's improving on that side of things this season.).Adebayor is a better team player, but very poor goal's return ratio to chance's created...also not too bright at looking along the line and get's caught off-side too often, so personally I would not want him permanantly for the wage's he want's...mix the two and we would have a good striker, but overall on a par I would say...

    • How can you compare them?
      I agree that Defoe has improved a lot this season with his team work and his tackling back but IMO he's not a solo striker. He can hold the ball up but he doesn't often bring others into the game from midfield. More likely to try and turn the defender and run on goal. But then he is a striker who plays up front where as Adebayor is a front man who scores goals. He can play with his back to goal collect the ball and lay it off before turning and running to take up a goal scoring position.
      Differing players, both good at what they do. Ade does his job well but doesn't have a good shot 2 goal ratio, but I'm not too sure about Daffy on that either though. He probably makes more of his own chances though.
