From Russia with love: Tottenham striker shows distinct lack of commitment to cause

It’s not hard to identify the Spurs fans these days, but is the club going down? Probably not, according to the bookmakers, although it’s hard to tell after a fifth of the Premier League season gone by.

There doesn’t exactly seem to be one main problem as to why the season has gone so badly for them, but they’re now stuck in an almighty rut and the game against Bolton might look easy on paper, but it will clearly be a struggle to land the three points.

Therefore, you need everyone pulling in the right direction, although it doesn’t sound as though everyone is fully focused on helping the team! The Daily Mirror reports that the talented Roman Pavlyuchenko will be jetting off to Russia in December to fulfil his role as a local politician. The striker will jet off a few days before Spurs play Manchester United, thus demonstrating where his loyalties lie!

He said recently: “Despite the need for me to be in Britain often, I’m not going to be absent from Stavropol for long.”

He is planning to leave London just three days before Spurs’ clash with Manchester United on December 13.

And with flights to Stavropol taking eight hours each way, he is likely to be exhausted by the time he returns.

A Russian source said: “They would be mad to let him go. But who’s going to argue with Vladimir Putin?”

Of course a Russian source made that comment, of course they did. Certainly not the bloke who wrote the article, oh no. What do Tottenham supporters make of this story? A bit storm in a teacup or does it illustrate that Pavlyuchenko was not the right sort of signing for Spurs?
