..but was it what we really needed or maybe it wasnt enough to buy just one.
Was the opening for Berbatov a much too high price to give away Campbell on loan and throw away Saha in the arms of Moyes?
We had all attacking options on the pitch to start with and had nothing more to put in when the attack struggle and were banging the head against the wall.

So we got our striker but was it what we really needed after seeing todays game?


Notice I dont say Berbatov is a bad player or its his fault he was a sparkler and were shining the first 15-20 mins only.

When the going gets tough the thiefs got going after the own goal and the champs...where the hell were they?:mad:

It was a poor formation to play with. yes Berbatov is the player we needed but nly if played in the correct system like a 4-4-2.

it is his first game, he wasn't exactly playing as a markman and he hadn't a good support from the midfield

bit harsh to judge him so early

The formation was our downfall. 4-4-2 with those players is non sense! 4-3-3 in a Chelsea type formation would of suited much better...

You are not right. I spoke that 4-3-3 is impossible for us. Because we have not strong enough centre. If he has not been swept up all match it isnt his problem, it is a problem of the central midf.

I think its a day to forget for Berbs in all honesty....

He started brilliantly, having a great shot and then setting up the goal, but there
was a moment in the first half where I think he lost the ball and he wanted a free
kick for it....he didn't get it and flapped his arms....very very quiet from there on
really.



Hopefully he'll calm down and bag that first goal to get the confidence going....

berbatov will prove himself without a doubt .but utd should have got a wide man who can cross a good ball and another proven full back. it does'nt make sense champions of europe yet we buy 1 player and about 5 or 6 have left ,we are actually weaker overall .:confused:

lmao Abo. You never fail to surprise me :D
but you do make a good point this time.

Too early to judge the Berb after only one game. He wont be properly match fit
yet or used to how the lads play. He is also more effective in the standard 4-4-2
and to go to Anfield is always tough. Skertl is a tough cookie and will make
plenty of forwards look bad this season.
Berba WILL come good. Just give him a bit of time.

very right from jazz and abo
it was only the blokes first game and its not the greatest game to make your debut in
he will for sure come good and soon my hope is he mite bag one or two on weds

i think we all expected a amazing performance from him and a few goals and ill hold my hands up and say i was also

but his time will come

I agree with the posts above me.

BTW, did anyone say when Rio I think it was hoofed the ball up the pitch, which was also about 100 feet in the air, and Berbatov just brought it down with ease? (he was given offside for it though)

i think he made a few touches like that but i cant think of that one of the top of my head tbh
i think the abilty to do things like that is why people compare him with cantona

I saw that. No other player could have done that. It was sexual :p

We have to remember that he was dropped from the Spurs team so wasn't fully
match fit and having to have along International break.

To be thrown into the mix at Anfield isn't an easy task....only Roy Keane is up to
that ;)


Sure he may have faded out but he did well early on. Without doubt he's got the
best first touch in the team IMO....forget Ronaldo's touch, its all in the Berb!
Hopefully we'll see him make his mark in the CL on Wednesday...it simply must be
eh?

the reason he didnt look particularly good was that he had absolute zero service from the midfield

Should of kept with Rooney and Tevez as strikers.

What gives Berbatov a devine right to start, ahead of a double winning partnership?

Alright, alright.

First game for Berbatov only. Impossible and wrong to jump to conclusion. He will surely come good. His touches were great and oozing with class. He had an assist to his credit....

Well and fine.

Let's continue watching; intensely. ;) :p
