The Big Question

VOTE: Should Harry just let Pavlyuchenko go?

Come one, Redknapp, enough’s enough… 


Like a sobbing child at a birthday party who has spent the whole afternoon throwing up in a flowerpot, Pavlyuchenko is now desperate to put an end to his ongoing Spurs humiliation by going home to Russia. And yet Henry Redknapp just won’t let him leave. How come?

As reported in today’s Daily Mail, Lokomotiv Moscow – who are allowed to buy until mid-March – had all but made a deal to snaffle the striker, before Henry barged into the room like a man dragging the corpse of Osama Bin Laden, and put the kibosh on the deal.

Lokomotiv president Nikolai Naumov said this:

“It’s our understanding that the view within Tottenham is split. The directors have no objection to selling the player, but the coach wants to keep him till at least the summer.”

Redknapp did, of course, part with Robbie Keane in January, but with Gudjohnsen in, and Pavlyuchenko unlikely to really put his back into it should he get a chance to play, is it really worth keeping hold of a man who must surely be killing the dressing room vibe?

Let us know with a vote and a comment.

    Who’s this Henry Redknapp chap? Is it an assumed identity to throw Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs off the scent?

    No, we should not let him go but make him play more often. He is a skillful and clever striker. Because he is cool and places his shots cleverly, he could be a good penalty taker. His shots are always well placed when he scores. I would like to see him starting some matches playing alongside Defoe in the place of Crouch who can come in a little later if necessary.
