He should have scored a hat-trick against Newcastle, I wonder what that would have done for his confidence. Still he looks sharper, maybe he's finally getting it. I'm very happy to see him in the line up against the smaller teams, where he can utilize his superior technical abilities but it's against the bigger sides where I feel he can be a liability.he's dreamy :wub:
I'd like to see those drawings too...
Berbatov is an entirely different player with confidence, once he relaxes you see the very best of him. Newcastle was a very encouraging performance.the one I was gutted about was the when where he went right and he should have just side footed it under the gk rather than use the outside of his boot (though nobody would've complained had it gone in)
He was desperately unlucky with Harper's save after he rescued it in the box, took it past 2 defenders and then tried to squeeze it in.
Confidence is crucial, he did well to get on the sheet and played some really good stuff, it speaks volumes that he even attempted some of the stuff he did, and if he gets a run of scoring going, we'll all see the best side of him once more.
Yeah I agree. I think the criticism he got really affected him - but at the same time it's obvously driven him to improve. Berbatov in Spurs form would be a hero here - end of discussion.Berbatov looks a total different player to last season. This time he looks fit, driven, sharp and hungry to get on the end of things while dropping back and helping defensively. He's obviously worked hard over the summer, as he is the type of character to be equally as critical of himself as to those others who are critical of him
Even if he doesn't score if he keeps playing as well as he is then he deserves to be in the team. Though I'm confident he get one today
