Berba’s agent: He’s a Fulham player now

Whilst there is nothing official on either of the club’s websites yet, Dimitar Berbatov’s agent, Emil Danchev, has confirmed that the Bulgarian is now a Fulham player.

“Dimitar has passed medical tests and then signed with Fulham,” he said. “Since yesterday we informed you that he firmly chose Fulham. Now is that everything is one hundred percent complete. Today was purely formal. Berbatov hopes for success in his new team. Martin Jol is very happy that the two will work together again after Tottenham.”

    With our current squad not sure what the best formation will be 442 or 433 or 451.Any suggestion?

  2. georgejoseph says:

    Ideally we should play Rooney and RVP upfront and kawaga in the hole .The midfield?

    I think it is about skill sets that the fans just don’t see. I recall lots of fans wanting vanderVaart though I am not a fan personally. The fact that he is off to Hamburg suggests that the likes of Spurs didn’t see a need and that big clubs didn’t take the bate, even after EPL experience. Live and learn.

    Spurs will never sell anything cheap to us. They have sold Modric for 27 million whcih may rise to 33 million. If we had bought him Levy would have sold Modric for 35 millions. Real madrid always get players for cheap. Look at Ozil,Kedira,Sahin etc.

    Spurs if they sign Moutinho will be really strong. If AVB gets his act together we may see spurs finishing in top 4 at the expense of arsenal. Selling modric and buying two good midfielders in dembele and Moutinho is a great piece of business.

    As for city goes they are buying in panic mode. Buying Maicon proves that. Why would you buy a player who has past his peak. I will again say they need to win the trophies very badly if not they are in big trouble.

    Hello all, last day for the summer window.

  7. Redslevin says:

    Who will get the number 9 now that Berbatov has left RvP, Welbeck, Hernandez ?

  8. Zibbie says:

    Liverpool and the KK choice set back the plan of the new owners, Adams, gone, Carroll gone, Henderson in Rogers style?
    This Boston group is smart, went after young gaffer talent.

    Spurs looking active.

    Shity going for Garcia

  9. Zibbie says:

    RVP will get #9

    dannysoya Strikers are bought to score goals not defend which Berba did on a regular basis when given a chance and maybe you should check some of the past Utd strikers before writing Sir Alex wants strikers to get back and defend because that’s just silly,maybe for set pieces but if Utd are buying strikers to defend the teams in fucking trouble.
    IMO Berba should’ve been selected over Danny and Hernandez and should never have been dropped when he was banging in goals for fun and carrying the team the year of Rooneys contract dispute.i suggest you go back and watch those games because Berba was superb that year and got one of the shittest deals ever,just because the myth was created by some fans that Berba didn’t fit it because they’ve never liked him doesn’t make it so.
    Listen we all have our opinions but stats don’t lie when it comes to banging in goals,like i said take any player who can ave nearly 1 goal in every 2 games and doesn’t fit in
    STR needs to change the thread Berba’s moved on and i don’t want to debate it again for 1000th time so let’s just agree to disagree

  11. Costas says:

    9 will remain vacant for the forthcoming season I believe. The numbers have already been registered.

  12. akmalfikri says:

    So sad seeing a quality player leave. Rooney is injured and we lost another striker. Not much cover.

  13. fergie is the boss says:

    it is a mystery to me why we were not after moutinho instead of playing a paul scholes at 37, love scholes but I do not get why we were not in for moutinho and heck even Dembele. Who will be betting in a year from now, moutinho will be hot property? oh we should have signed him when he was cheap, it is sometimes typical of united being so slow to getting required targets for positions we so badly need strengthening

    @ Zibbie

    Howdy. Is Charlie Adam really gone from LFC. I was hoping they kept that lumbering oaf so we could run rings around him.

    Thank You for the SAF quotes. The second paragraph when he talks about the speed of play and Berba confirms my analysis from months back, nice to know I was spot on.

    SAF throwing Tottenham into the Berba mix was calculated as is most of what he says. Many more phone calls for the Spurs front office to deal with now.

    The Young injury revelation makes it ,”easier” for teams to project our starting 11 and prepare. That may be why he is annoyed. The less injury info they have the more time wasted preparing for players who won’t play. The FA did not have to reveal that just yet. But like all things MUFC, they hurt us any opportunity given.

  15. LoneStarRed says:

    City’s action seem telling. You would think that they have a system and philosophy of play which requires a certain set of skills sets and thus their scouting apparatus identifies those players who would be good fits for them. When those players are needed or become available decisions are made and actions taken.
    There seems to be no such forethought in how they get players. Instead it is simply identify the players everyone else wants, throw more money than at them than anyone and let the manager integrate them. In a word, haphazard.

    It won’t be too long after winter announces itself that Tevez starts acting up. And Bibatelli has been too quiet for too long. An eruption is imminent.

  16. dannysoya LOVES USAIN BOLT says:

    @Wayne Of course strikers are not brought in to defend but all I am saying is Fergie’s greatest teams have always featured very mobile forwards. Cole and Yorke and Ole, Rooney, Ronaldo and Tevez, King Eric, Mark Hughes etc. Besides fergie’s mantra THROUGHOUT his United years has always been to defend as one unit from the front. This includes strikers. Berba’s defensive work rate is very low especially when he loses the ball.

    I don’t hate Berbatov and I often clamoured for Fergie to give him some game time but the truth remains he was not a good fit for our style. Fergie even said so himself. I think Dreadedred Posted a fergie quote on this issue where fergie confirmed that one of the major reasons he sold Berbatov was because he could not fit into our quick style of play anymore.

    Also stats can be very skewed sometimes. Berba scored in Bunches. He could score five in one game an then go three without a goal.
