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.
Speaking to the Russian press this time Pav said: :I don’t believe I can fight my way into the Tottenham starting line-up. Players can feel what the manager thinks about them, and I know that the manager doesn’t count on me these days.
“I don’t know whether Redknapp is telling the truth when he says he doesn’t want to lose me. I guess he is not telling the truth.
“Redknapp says I’m not playing because my pre-season wasn’t good. I can’t understand that.”
Perhaps the only reason QPR have emerged as ‘front runners’ involves their visit to White Hart Lane on Sunday. Whatever happens, while Roman remains a favourite for many fans, the talk starts to get tiresome and it is widely hoped that the forthcoming transfer window brings about a solution to the issue.
