We Got Him !!

I love to follow United transfer battles but this one even outshone the Tevez
Affair !! Well we got him, and I am so happy now !!

Berbatov will be the best signing since Cantona, maybe even better than the
king himself. From the minute the transfer window opened exactly 62 days
went by until it closed, and Fergie got the papers registered with 40 minutes
of the window remaining - Pheww.

For Fergie though Berbatov’s arrival was a matter of extreme urgency. While
United were always confident City would be seen off, Ferguson knew he needed
another senior striker. He has won the last two Premier League titles, and the
Champions League whilst being one man down in the striker department. We
all knew this time around, there would be no surprise signing such as Henrik
Larsson to help us out, or an unexpected seam of goals from Ole Gunnar
Solskjaer, or, due to his current injury, 42 from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Campbell might have impressed in pre-season but Ferguson realised it was too
much to expect the youngster to hold down a regular place should either Wayne
Rooney or Carlos Tevez be ruled out for an extended period. Even though other
targets such as Michael Owen, Thierry Henry and David Villa were mentioned,
Berbatov was the man Ferguson kept returning to.

At 27, Berbatov is slightly older than most of United’s recent major purchases
but Ferguson feels his silky touch - which the Scot first experienced when Bayer
Leverkusen faced the Reds in the Champions League five years ago. Fergie
believes Berbatov has the quality to score goals himself and create chances for
others. Some may question the player’s temperament in light of his recent
behaviour but that's just nonsense, Fergie has worked with plenty of highly-
strung individuals, including Eric Cantona, and got the best out of them. He will
expect to do the same with Berbatov, starting when United travel to Anfield to
face Liverpool on September 13.

What do you make of the move?

Have your say.

Hi
I dont know about being as good or better than cantona, such comparisons shouldn't be made IMO.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of his - he was a little bit too moody at Spurs, and although sublime when on song, he didn't fire too often. However, now he's here and I'll support him from the bottom of my heart, and I'm sure with the excellence of the coaching staff at OT, he'll improve leaps and bounds..
Cheers!
