Super Roman Pavlyuchenko or this Diego Kickaball fell, then?
I suppose in truth, Roman’s 2009/2010 season got off to a slow start, went quiet and just about petered out towards the end. A run of goals against lesser opposition marked him out as the FA Cup specialist for a short while but it didn’t really springboard him as it might have.
Diego Forlan however is by contrast a veritable Phoenix risen from the ashes. Known generally speaking, for failing to cut the mustard at Manchester United in a previous existence, he is now arguably enjoying the form of his life on the world’s most well televised stage. Spurs fans are sure to be split. Many still hold the Russian in high regard. Faced with alternatives that include ‘Hoof It To Crouchie’ and the untrustworthy Keane, Roman represents a guy who given more games and more support could provide some good old fashioned magic. Others are constantly looking for quick answers to replace players who don’t deliver at the first time of asking. So what say you?
