United - The Bebe Buy Was Instinctive!

United - The Bebe Buy Was Instinctive!

Sir Alex Ferguson was able to put total trust in the United scouting department and adviCe from former United assistant manager Carlos Queiroz when signing unknown Portuguese striker Bebe for approximately £7 million.

Sir Alex even publicised the fact he hadn`t even seen the young attacking midfielder play before sending David Gill to complete the deal.

'Sometimes you have to go on an instinct, you look at material, you look at the player's age and whether they're bringing pace, balance, desire to play and things like that."

"Our scouting department is very good and you have got to trust your staff. Our scout in Portugal was adamant that we must do something quickly, and I also spoke to Carlos."


A gamble it seems that we could sign an unproven player like Bebe and let slip a player proven at the highest level in Mesut Ozil, who have recently finalised a move to the graveyard of football for £6 million more.

However no one had really heard of young Chicharito before he signed, and if he turns out anything like him I will be satisfied.

In Fergie we trust!

I found this amazing when I heard about it, 7 million for a player that Alex has never seen play...

As opposed to £30.5 m for Berbaflop? Glass houses and stones mate - we all know English players come at premium prices, and let's face it, we just bought the PFA young player of the year.

32.5 mil for Robinho? 19 mil for Jo? 22-24 mil for Lescott? 25 mil for Adebayor? 17.5 mil for Roque Santa Cruz? Alot more big money flops on your part in less time.

@MR.CHELSEA ur statement abt Ozil is true. But on ozil, there was one tiny problem. He had his mind set on spain. It was not a problem of money.
