We are now sure that Carick knows how Berbatov plays and Berbatov knows where Carick will send the ball-zuco- said:I think the rest of the players understanding him has been just as important. The players need to understand HIS style as much as He needs to understand theirs.
That could possibly stem back to their Spurs days and it MAY be a factor in why Fergie bought him. Could be a bit far fetched thoughzoran_zlatanov said:We are now sure that Carick knows how Berbatov plays and Berbatov knows where Carick will send the ball
we brought carrick in the same year they brought berba so they never played in the same team........ forgive me if im wrong-zuco- said:That could possibly stem back to their Spurs days and it MAY be a factor in why Fergie bought him. Could be a bit far fetched though
Nope, you're right. Maybe Sir Alex bought them because they're both excellent at what they do. That they both played for Spurs happens to be a coincidence?andersons_left_foot said:we brought carrick in the same year they brought berba so they never played in the same team........ forgive me if im wrong
RichardsReds said:For a striker his record is not that bad. He scores a goal every other game on average. But considering how much we spent... anyone else feeling a bit disappointed? Hopefully he'll come good but I can't see his goal to game ratio improving much. Have we over spent here? Yes people will argue what else he brings to the team but we have plenty of players who bring plenty to the team. What we needed this summer was a leathal goal score and at the moment Berbatov is not that. Tevez and Rooney both add the extra dynamic to the side, we did need a goal scorer.
I think money would have been better spent on Villa, heck you might have been got Eto'o or you almost certainly could have got Benzema for Â£30. Is this bad business?
i don't get why everybody is so obsessed with work rate when roo and tevezs game is all about that! if anything its a lucky thing that berba is"lazy" imodlan4327 said:I'm not disappointed with him. Having said that I agree with one aspect of the OP's post.
For the price we could've gotten an Aguerro, an Eto'o, a Benzema. Does that makes sense?
I like Berba but the price could've bought us a genuine out & out goalscorer with a fantastic work rate.
RichardsReds said:It was Â£30,750,000 actually. Either way imo an overspend. Did we win last two seasons without Berba, yes! For me Berba would have justified a Â£20m transfer fee. He is the second highest ever prem transfer (i think i'm not certain). Anyway cba to discuss this further no one wants to talk about it. Night all.
Infact Eto'o was up for sale in the summer Barcelona wanted to sell him (obviously they don't now). But I think that's irrelevant as Berbatov is proving at the moment we made the right decision to buy him.Ady87 said:Amen to that!
People need to stop talking about Eto'o, Benzema et al. They were not up for sale when we went in for Berbatov. Berbatov over the last two months has been magic and it's times like those that win titles. We will win it this year and Berbatov will be a huge role in it. Not to mention what he does for us over the next couple of years. Well worth the price.
i agree, berba adds a new dimension to the team, he brings a sense of calm in the final third that at times we have lacked in previous seasons. Yes rooneys and tevezs work rates are great but berba is someone we can play through and create off, its good to have a different type of forward.cantos red army said:i don't get why everybody is so obsessed with work rate when roo and tevezs game is all about that! if anything its a lucky thing that berba is"lazy" imo
