Redknapp on Pav and penalty exit

0

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp praised debutant Luongo for having the courage to take the penalty.

“He is OK, of course,” Redknapp said.

“If Pavlyuchenko had scored, he wouldn’t have had to take one, would he? It would have been all over, but that is how it goes.

“The kid had the bottle to step up and take one – so did young Tom Carroll and Jake Livermore, so that was good.”

Pulis also had words of support for Luongo.

“At least he had the strength of character to go up and do it,” Pulis said.

“I thought he played well. He looked a decent young player.”

  1. Lets face it, Pav is just not going to be good at spurs, why we are still paying him a salary I don’t know.

    He has proven himself in the past, but this was in a different league, a league where they don’t use squad rotation like in the EPL. He needs to be playing week in, week out to be good otherwise he just never gets going. Sell him ASAP.

  2. Pav is a real waste of space… He has been very poor in every game he has featured in this season including friendlies against weak opponents.

    sell him in january

  3. Just sell him….dont care for how much, they made loads on Crouch, Hutton, Palacios etc which wasnt reinvested we just need him gone, I hate his facial expressions and his lazy workrate, he has had chances and has flopped he is the first one to go to the press when things aint going right and he has played against Hearts, PAOK and Stoke and failed to even look like scoring.

    His penalty miss yesterday was an embarassment for a proven international with experience, the word experience is irrelevant, talented players should be considered over him ala Harry Kane, the youngsters who did step up should be credited Carroll, Townsend, Livermore and Luongo

  4. Pav is one of those character who I think needs to know that is a first teamer, and does not really seem to have the character to fight for his place, and show that he is worthy of being in the first 11. Clearly Harry now regards him as a backup – and probably trying to determine his character. Right now he does not seem willing to fight. The sad bit is that he could be absolutely fantastic.

  5. IT SEEMS VERY LIKELY THAT PAVLYUCHENKO WILL NEVER ADAPT TO THE PREMIERSHIP , SCORING A GOAL EVERY NOW AND THEN IS NO GOOD WHAT SO EVER THE BIG GUY SHOULD HAVE BEEN A RESOUNDING SMASH HIT , WE MUST SEE HIM OUT THE DOOR COME JANUARY WITH THE MONEY WE GET FOR HIM AND THE £20,000,000 WE GOT FOR CROUCH AND PALACIOS THAT SHOULD BUY A DECENT STRIKER LIKE BERBATOV AND A CENTRE BACK LIKE SAMBA .

  6. Dear Harry Redknapp. Yes Pav is pants.

    You just had three months to say it.

    But you wait until the window closes.

    Don’t you got a calendar at your house?

    Spurs cannot score without Adebayor.

    Wrap him in cotton wool.

  7. How much money could Spurs lose if they don't sell him, if they rely on him in the Europa League and FA Cup and then get knocked out of those competitions as well?

  8. I love how easily people or fans bash players. Pavlyuchenko is quality, and putting the blame solely on one player is idiotic at best. Crouch and Defoe consistently fluffed lines last season, and a pretty much bit-part performance Pavlyuchenko scored more than them both. Also, when was the last time Pavlyuchenko played, week earlier in another country alongside youth players? He may not be as talented as Adebayor, but he is tad more dedicated than Defoe to the cause. A far superior player than Crouch yet played second-fiddle to them both. He has proven that with a run of games, he scores goals.

    It is always rash responses from pundits and fans, sell him ASAP, get rid of him, or he’s crap. I agree Pavlyuchenko should leave, he won’t get a fair shot under Redknapp. Much in the same reason Kranjcar did not last season. There was no reason, ‘Arry just plays the favouritism card.

    And just an FYI, Defoe looks better because he has a player like Adebayor alongside him. A player willing to go and get the ball, pull defenders out of position, a player who has the ability to hold the ball up. The Defoe and Crouch combination stunk because Crouch for all his height strangely cannot out-jump a player 3-5 inches shorter than him, or out-muscle them, and Defoe just ran around. How many times was Defoe flagged for being offside last season?

    There will be a £8m loss on Pavlyuchenko because his value would have diminished as such based on the lack of games played. Dos Santos is another that hasn’t got a fair shake on the pitch. This is regardless of his off the pitch antics. You cannot keep playing people that aren’t performing, then complain when you have others who could help the cause.
