Sorry, I'm gonna have to go all Wenger on you here... I did not see it.
This seems to be a regular refrain of mine lately, I've been really busy for the last few months so haven't been able to watch as much footy as I'd like, so I'm not really able to discuss the Downfall of Pav - he was still doing alright last I saw.
I can't imagine he's the type to allow ego over substance, but I could be very wrong, you've seen more than me so can probably answer that better than I can.
(I realise I'm commenting here to say I've got nothing to say, but seeing as I've been a big supporter of his I don't want to seem to have a hypocritical silence now he's apparently not playing so well)
I thought he had a poor game and lacked a bit of spark (a big bit in fact) however thats as bad as it got really. His reaction to being subbed wasnt in the same league as a Ghaly or Rooney...he jogged off, shook hands with Campbell and jogged straight down the tunnell (perhaps he was choking back the tears and didnt want to burst out crying in front of everyone!!......ok Im being silly now)......He also came out for the lap of honour at the end and was laughing and joking with the players and kicking balls into the stands. Im for giving him a bit longer to settle and find his feet in the PL.....he has the class...will Spurs be able to unleash it is another question but Id give him the first half of next season to prove it.

I'd go so far as to give him the whole of next season; Bent's only started to come good since January, and I think Pav's got more raw talent than him.
But, like I say, I've not really seen when Pav went Bad, so am not qualified to comment (but will continue to do so anyway ;) - it's a slow week at work!)
From what I saw on TV he didnt exacly take the huff - as was said he shook hands with Campbell and came out afterwards for the walk around.
Also, he has since appologised, stating he was only angry at himself.
Fair enough I say, he'll know to stay on the bench from now on if he's subbed again. I still think (hope) he'll be here next season and have a hell of a campaign.
