    Nice one Berba, see you next season!

  2. devil without a cause says:

    nice 1 berba…… hope you coach the youngsters how to remain grounded and how to have a touch like silk………..

  3. Briggsy says:

    Is that his Dad?

  4. Pipzor says:

    Haha, look at him :D Theres only one Berba…

  5. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    Could someone tell me why the hell he cut his hair so short? I want my old Berba back. :(

    On topic, always good to hear about what our lads are doing when they are not beasting it up on the football pitch. Berba always has been a well-educated, well-grounded, decent man, so no surprises there.

    I wonder whether he will take up his coaching badges also. Like Ole and Scholes, I can see him making a decent coach because of his attitude.

  6. Costas says:

    Yep. He’s staying at my house. ;)

  7. Balaji Sivaraman says:

    @Costas, LOL! Don’t forget to give him those kebabs mate. :D

    Off-topic, this seems like a pretty good read.–Ashley-Young.html

    I was practially ROFLing all over my computer at what Sir Alex has pulled off. Imagine the look on Dalglish and Wenger’s faces. That alone is worth the price of admission IMO.

    Looks like Jones deal is complete 100%. No doubts about it given Rooney also tweeted about it (being the typical idiot he is, he couldn’t keep his mouths shut). I sometimes wonder whether Rooney is our very own miniature version of Mario.

    Plus, Young is valued at 15 million which is not too bad I feel. Of course, there could be added payment depending on his performances but it is also worth it.

    Is anyone as excited about next season as I am? Always sad to see old friends departing us, but the newcomers and what Sir Alex has planned for the summer has me drooling all over myself right now.

    Cannot wait for pre-season to kick off personally. :)

    @ Costas make sure he doesnt consume too many of those “Spoon Sweets” we need him lean and mean for next season! ;)

  9. Costas says:

    Don’t worry guys, I’ll keep him in check. :lol: Just one kebab every now and then for all his hard efforts this season. :)

  10. Berbarian says:

    The EPL season statistics says that, despite missing quite a few games, Berba was our best player recognised as MOTM for record 8 times, 3 more than Vida, Rooney and Nani.
    Well done Berba, hope next season you will be on double digits for MOTM.

  11. RedMadDog says:

    The Man has class :)

  12. Giles Oakley says:

    Balaji, you ask why Berba’s cut his hair so short. It’s because he’s been to a Barba…

  13. wingard says:

    Was Paul Whitehouse running this?

  14. KingOfStretfordEnd says:

    Congratulations Berba!

    Love you, Muacks muacks.Lol.

    First lesson: Ignore wierdos that gawk at you while you are chilling out with a book.

  16. YesRed says:

    Giles Oakley @ 9.39 – “It’s because he’s been to a Barba ” PMSL !!!!!!!

  17. 'GINGER PELE' says:

    THIS guy is just a GENIUS man BERBA plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz STAY FFS touch is of ART

  18. Colbert says:

    He even makes reading look sexy. Rawrrr.

  19. CedarsDevil says:

    Genius both on and off the field …… Bloody love the guy

  20. Fred says:

    @Balaji – he wears his hair so short now because of the way his hairline is receding. A short cut is (arguably) more flattering for him. It seems to have made him a better player anyway, so don’t knock it!

  21. willierednut says:

    Berba short back and sides?

  22. RedFilip says:

    Congratulations, Dimitar Berbatov !!!
    I never had any doubt that You will pass the exams with flying colour because You are incredibly intelligent, maybe too inteligent for a footballers, but hay, that’s the Manchester United way, all of our player are smart geniuses !!!

  23. dannysoya says:

    Congratulations Berba smart both on and OFF the pitch. one of my dreams is to meet you one day in person. I will make that dream come true by force. Please stay Berb. PLEASE STAY!!!!

  24. SJ10 says:

  26. bchilds says:
