Man Wants In

What’s this? Pavlyuchenko quite likes Tottenham after all?

Pav – happy now


Whilst Craig Bellamy is reacting rather angrily to his football stepdad up in Manchester, down in London – where the streets are most definitely not paved with gold – Roman Pavlyuchenko appears to have grown more fond of old man Redknapp than anyone could have anticipated.

To jog your memory, around about January time, the Russian was at rock bottom – complaining about feeling “depressed”, hating London, convinced that Henry Redknapp was doing cruel impressions of him behind his back. But now he’s totally bounced back, saying this (as reported in The Mirror):

“When the team wins and I am constantly playing the relations cannot be anything but good.”

“Now I feel the manager’s trust and do my best not to let him down.Click here to find out more!

“I have dropped all my previous ideas about leaving Spurs in the summer and I am concentrated on one thought only – what we need to do to finish fourth.”

On the one hand, this is great news for the mood-swinging Russian, and Spurs. But on the other hand, what if Redknapp ever decides to leave him out of the team again?

Those with any relationship-with-a-maniac experience will know this story all too well. It rarely ends brilliantly.

    Forgive Berbatoss? Let him rot on Man Yoo’s bench. The blackguard deserves all he is getting.

    Berbatov refused to play for the club on several occasions – he showed a total lack of respect for the shirt and for that reason, he should not be brought back.

    Pavlyuchenko has never given anything less than 100% on the pitch.

    Pav forever. Even when he misses, you can see the anguish on his face. That’s the kind of player I like playing for my team. He’s one of the closest things to a fan playing on the pitch that we have out there (next to Dawson ofcourse).

    I hope he stays.
