Pavlyuchenko was at Tottenham from the summer of 2008 until February 2012. He joined the club from Spartak Moscow for a fee of £15.66 million and left Spurs in 2012 to join Lokomotiv Moscow for a fee of £8.10 million (as per Transfermarkt).

Some other Spurs fans also had words of praise for their former striker.

A couple of Spurs fans believe that Pavlyuchenko was an underrated player at the club and the others have praise for him too.

The striker had a good record in European competitions for Spurs. In the Europa League season of the 2011/12 campaign, he scored two goals in six games. In the 2010/11 Champions League main season, he found the back of the net three times in six games for the Lilywhites (as per Transfermarkt).

Clearly, Pavlyuchenko had a pretty good goalscoring tally during his time at Tottenham and because of that, it is understandable why Spurs fans have a liking for him.
