Pav wants out!

Premier League Tottenham Hotspur
comment on the article

SSN just reporting that Pavlyuchenko has said that he wants to leave Tottenham.
Guess he needs a good run before the world cup so can't really blame him.

I would love it if we can get him for 7-9M in Jan.

Pav would be good for Liverpool - he's definitely good enough. Harry is making a mistake pushing him out.

If you are any sort of Spurs fan you'd know that your club shot themselves in the foot just after the 'Lasagne' incident when they sacked Jol.

Since then you've been on a 'throw as much cash at the wall and see what sticks' approach with your attitude to buying players. Kind of like a poor man's Chelsea.

How many huge transfer fee players have been ineffective at Spurs?

Had you of given Jol anywhere near the same resources you could conceiveably be playing CL football by now

Rocky..

Levy has backed most managers we have had Jol was just unfortunate that we had a wastefull director of football who was buying the players for him at the time.

Were they the players he wanted we'll probably never know the truth but i doubt it very much.

Who would he have bought if he had his own say so we don't know so we can only guess where we would be at this present time.

..yet another big money player keeps the forever rotating doors of white hart lane going-levy regularly seems to do well with the money received by selling players-if you didnt waste so much money on buying them u might actually be considered a serious team

And where's the proof Spurs are a small club? Quote statistics for us. Or provide us with reliable links.

I wouldn't say Spurs are a small club, although their stature over the last decade and a half has shrunk.

Rocky....before you make such outrageous claims and state them as if they were fact, you should do some work. Spurs are the FIFTH most successful club in the PL over the last decade...It's tru that there have been periods when we have been higher than that...but considering the way our stadium, and its capacity, were clobbered by Taylor, I think we have held up well, and are improving, rather than what you suggest...after all, where would YOU guys be now if Spurs hadn't suffered that 'dodgy lasagna'...so don't be too cocky, my son.

cheers

Your arguments are flawed, contradictory and hypocritical.

Bent moved to Sunderland for more first team opportunities, and that is what he will get in a smaller team playing a simpler style of play.

To state Defoe is past his best is a fairly silly statement, although I do appreciate he has just had his 27th birthday, so only has another good 5-6 years in him.

With regards Pav, he is 4th choice striker. Defoe and Crouch have done well when given the chance and Keane offers something different to the squad and has been very useful in the absence of other assist players (e.g Modric, who by the way, is quite a decent player that has been signed by Tottenham and not been left out or ruined as you claim big names are by Spurs).

Pav has not performed well when given his chance. I really rate him as a player but he has to be patient or leave.

Form comes and goes, that applies to all players of all quality.

If/when our other strikers lose form or get injured, Pav will hopefully be given his chance and shine but he has to wait for that time.

He has no more of a right to be in the squad more than anyone else.

Responding to your last question of "Do I need to say more???" that is an easy one to answer.

-------------------------
Pavliuchenko never got a real chance under HR. You know that. I do not need to prove it.
yes - as you say, Bent moved to Sunderland for more first team opportunity and you can see it did work well for him. You may be angry with me but he is in the same level as Defoe to say the least.
Strikes me that Bent is now simply the THIRD Top Scorer in the League. Only Torres and Drogba have bagged more than him. laugh
As for Pavlyuchenko, he is certainly bound to prove you wrong when you offload him to someone else. Just hope, for your sake, that you offload him to a team in other country otherwise he may come to haunt you just as much as you may miss Bent in the later stages of the Premiership.
Wait and see.

BBB you harp on with the usual imitation too, that he'd never be able to play in the much glorified Premiership. He's not up to it at this level. He's too weak a player for that. What a load of tripe!

--------------------------

You can throw a tantrum all you like, but in life "actions speak louder then words", and Pav just isn't good enough to succeed in the premier league and that has been backed up by his actions.

Face it, you have a weak understanding of football and seem to always back players you believe haven't been given a chance, when the reality is there lack of chances are down to their lack of ability.

Pav is going to be sold in January and he won't be missed.
