It seems to be true. Plushenko plans to be back next season.
Thanks for the links Daniela and Irene Very Happy

Summary:
In today's press conference he said that he'll definitely be back next season. He's already practicing and doing jumps with 3.5 turns. And he plans to start with a smaller competition in September/October.

Please, not again... I can't bear a thought of him coming back.
It is not that I don't enjoy his skating, sometimes I do in fact.
For example, when I watched the show at Red Square in December I did love his performance. He was really impressive and I have to hand it to him

But I simply want to see some new faces representing Russia. Why not give other skaters a chance?
After all, they also have to gain the experience how to compete at major competitions and to challenge for a medal some day.
Besides when you watch skaters performing as Takahashi did at Four Continents,
you do start wondering whether it is sensible for Plushenko to make a comeback.

Although I guess Plushenko's fans are of another opinion. They must be looking forward to his return.

That's bad news for me too....but i think that it means only that he began practising.i think if he believes that he isn't good enough he won't comeback.
he cosiders himself a winner and he want's to comeback to win. maybe he changes his mind after the Worlds.... who knows... confused

Well, I have heard it so many times, but I still cant believe in it. I dont really think he can be a real contender for 2010 Olys. So many things has changed, and its not only Takahashi who could challenge him. And I also dont think he really needs it - he is an Olympic champion, after some surgeries - he should be happy that he can skate and entertain the crowd in shows. If he wins, it will be kind of a usual thing. If he loses, he will lost some of his reputation.

Please, Plushy, be happy with your medal from Turin and watch Vancouver on TV. It will be better for you, and for us.

Thanks for the news.
I really hope he does not come back. Why he just can't give a chance to other Russians - Voronov, Lutai etc.? He just wants to feel that they still need him. Evil or Very Mad

You know what, if he comes back I really hope that he will not even finish at the podium at major competitions, that would be a good lesson.

well, if i should pick someone for comming back in skating that person will definitely be yagudin and not plushenko...i hope he's not serious...and this not because he would be a threat for brian or stephane....they are much better then a few years ago....but he does the same thing everytime...and i don't want to see him doing again and again the same program...remember when he said he will present a new program at the olympics? and yet he did an old program...i really think his time for competing is gone......and it will be really difficult for him to come back, many things have changed....
and he can't compete for ever...

but, we will see...anyway, i think now a bigger threat for brian is takahashi and plushenko won't be able to be in the top if he comes back

While I don't think Plushenko's return is such a bad thing I do hope he doesn't make the mistake of entering the competitions with the assumption that he's locked into winning. The skaters he left behind after his Olympic win have improved immeasurably and are, now, stiff compeition for him. He'll have to fight hard to repeat those gold medals, LOL, because the judges won't hand them over to him because he's the reining Olympic gold medalist.

In addition I think his presence among the competitors will be a good thing, since it will push Brian, Lambiel, Takahashi, Weir and Lysacek, and the others to be on the top of their game, and that will make for superb competitions. It will be very interesting to watch what develops.

Ximena wrote a long and informative post on FSU. Here is an extract of it:

"As for him coming back or not. The difference between his call and some of the other skaters is that Evgeni is training every day now, he is on diet, he has been consistenly skating every since Torino. He is preparing the programs, the SP is done, that and two more just in case, and apparently 3 FS (and wether you like it or not, it is Marton again). He has put on hold any other activities that is not regarding his skating. So he is doing what it's necesary to come back, and he wants to. So unless he re-injured himself (I so hope that does not happen) he will come back."

I didn't know all these things. Especially about the SP's and LP's!

yeah... they even told that on Polish radio station Shocked Shocked
hm... he may either win with the same program as usual or bury his legend. actually it's quite brave of him I guess. eg I would be quite scared of the possibility that my big legend would be ruined and I think that is quite a brave decision.
hmm we'll see.. I think there's a long way from the decision to reality in the future.

I love the idea of having multible programmes in waiting - or is it the same programme to different pieces of music?

Since sometimes it is really hard to find any connection between Plushenko's movements and the music, it's not unlikely at all. :lach:

WHAT??!! I'm going completly retarted here
I was getting used not seing Plush at the competition, i wonder what Brian's reaction is on this
Thank you for the news pale
I think it's a bit dishonest if he has been training since Torino and wants to come back just before the Vancouver Olympics.

I agree Manon, I feel the same... Neutral But, despite the fact that he`s been training for a long time, he hasn`t competed for a long time and this is still a big disadvantage, many athletes have evoluated, so...we`ll see! Wink

lol!

Sorry, I do try to be serious... I just can't. The latest thing I've heard about Plushenko is his recent interview where he announced that he had finally landed a 3A. Which caused nothing but mockery on numerous russian boards, considering that almost all top skaters do land triple axels every day, but nobody goes as far as 'announcing' something like 'Today I've landed 10 triple axels and 15 quads. The video is already available!!'. At Russian Nationals he skated one of his SPs... So, until he (I can't help the word) announced that that was it, everyone thought it must've been a joke or another poorly done exhibition.
What I see, however, is too much media hype organized by IceVision and his sponsors who just want to remind us all that Evgeni the Great is still alive, is preparing and someday will come back to win all the gold of the world... and no reasons to believe he'll ever make it to world's top10.
