The Big Question

Who would win in a Babel/Pavlyuchenko trade-off?

“Not Voronin huh? How about Babel?”

Benitez and Redknapp 

Anyone who has ever entered the realms of a trade-off knows that the key is to come away with a better deal than your opponent. Kids have been partaking in this ancient playground ritual for years, using football stickers, marbles, cigarettes, cola bottles, pornography, family members, pretend car keys and Dairylea as bargaining tools.

During the January transfer window, the whisper coming from all of the most luxurious football drinking holes is that Liverpool and Spurs executives will be marching into an imaginary playground, probably chewing gum, in an attempt to swap Ryan Babel for Roman Pavlyuchenko.

But who would be the true victor in this intriguing football trade-off?

    Erm…wouldn’t both win. Spurs get rid of a striker nowhere near 1st team and get a raw 22-year old who with a bit of TLC could come good and Liverpool finally get a half decent target man.

    Good for Liverpool. Pav is a decent player but not a natural partner for Torres, and Benitez doesn’t like to play two strikers anyway. But he’s a better bet than N’Gog to have coming on for the last third or when Torres is injured (which is quite often it seems).
