Harry Redknapp: A difficult act to follow? - originally posted on

It would be all too easy to attriubte the recent success of Tottenham Hotspur to Harry Redknapp. Breaking into the top 4 is no mean feat, one yet to be emulated by anyone other than cashbags Manchester City for quite some time.

Dzagoev scored three goals over the course of Russia's somewhat surprising Euro 2012 group stage elimination and it has since been believed that potential suitors must be prepared to bid at least £15 million for the 22-year old's services.

Poka, Pav

It has been one hell of a busy fortnight in the world of Tottenham Hotspur – and not a whisper of any of it from The Boys From White Hart Lane. For shame.

So, in a desperate attempt to catch up - and stay relevant – TBFWHL is taking a look back at 14 days in which Spurs stumbled into the fifth round of the FA Cup, re-entered the title race after a brief remission and brought in a couple of battle-hardened veterans at the expense of a cult hero.

Pav bids farewell at related • 1 view

Amidst all the loan deals away from White Hart Lane yesterday there was one permanent departure and it came in the shape of Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko who has departed for Lokomotiv Moscow for a fee in the region of £7.5m.

It had been an unhappy eighteen months at the Lane for Pav, punctuated by occasional match winning strikes against the likes of Birmingham last season and against Sunderland a few weeks ago, where his solitary goal could yet prove vital in the course of the season.

Rubin Kazan have some experienced heads from Russian League and European football and they showed it with a commanding performance against a Spurs team that had a mix of youth and experience.

It's not entirely clear why, but if you read the papers today it seems as if QPR are emerging as the front runners to sign Roman Pavlyuchenko when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Pav situation is getting a little tiresome and as our most vocal of players when he isn't featuring in the first team squad, the Russian has been bemoaning his lack of first team action once again.

Roman Pav-erage-lachenko once again temporarily silenced his critics and showed why he is the most frustrating Spurs player in the history of the game.

Unsettled forward set for Spurs exit?

Tottenham Hotspur Harry Redknapp has refused to assure Roman Pavlyuchenko that the Russian striker is a part of the long-term plans at White Hart Lane and in fact, the Spurs boss has hinted that the player's persistent wish to be sold may be granted in the near future.

Pavlyuchenko, 29, has made only two substitute appearances in the Barclays Premier League this season and although Redknapp hopes that the Russian continues to showcase his talent in the Europa League when Rubin Kazan pay a visit tonight, the gaffer has made it clear that he expects more.

A couple of swap deals could be on the cards this January with both Roman Pavlyuchenko and Heurelho Gomes being used as potential bait to bring new faces to the Lane.

Stop me if you've heard it before but the stories in the newspapers and over the web today are full of reports that Roman Pavlyuchenko wants out of the Lane in January.

Pav hasn't been given the game time that he has craved so far this season but when he has appeared, his performances have been lacklustre to say the least.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has told Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko to ‘show more fight' after some listless performances so far this season.

While Pav is one of only three recognised strikers at White Hart Lane, new arrival Emmanuel Adebayor has quickly settled into a first choice partnership with Jermain Defoe which has left the Russian consigned to the bench.

Is there a better alternative to Pav? at related • 0 views

When Aaron Lennon limped out of yesterday's action on 27 minutes, it must have been tempting for manager Harry Redknapp to look at the midfield alternatives he had waiting on the bench.

Either Niko Kranjcar or Steven Pienaar could have been a more obvious choice but Harry's positive move of putting Roman Pavlyuchenko on the pitch was to eventually pay off.

In August I wrote an article asking if Harry Redknapp could solve our striker crisis from within, rather than investing in a new forward. At the time, we had the option of selecting either Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch or Roman Pavlyuchenko to play alongside Rafael Van der Vaart, who enjoyed a superb debut season in a Tottenham shirt.

As last season began to draw to a close, it seemed as though Roman Pavlyuchenko would be the first player to leave White Hart Lane this summer. Despite leading the scoring amongst our three regular strikers, Pav was very vocal in his desire to leave for a chance of more regular football.

All that seemed to change following his two long range strikes against Birmingham City on the last day of the campaign.

The Rest

Yesterday we looked at the possibility of new arrivals at White Hart Lane and the general consensus was that we were due for a quiet day. Later in the evening, reports suggested that Vedran Corluka was a target for Bayer Leverkusen and they seem to be gaining momentum this morning.

At the start of the month, Harry said that the Croatian would definitely not be leaving but after omitting him from the cup games where much of the fringe side appear, it may well be that Charlie is on his way.
