Berbatov Exit?

Berbatov Exit?

Having not even made the substitutes bench last night, against Barcelona at Wembley, the omens do not look good for Dimitar Berbatov.

The Bulgarian, with a year left on his contract, could now be heading for the exit door knowing that not even being the holder of the 'Golden Boot` was enough to see him named in Sir Alex` eighteen last night.

Speaking about his shock omission, Sir Alex had this to say after the game,

"These are the kind of heartbreaking decisions you have to take but you do it for the good of the team. It was a difficult decision to leave out Berbatov."

"I found it easy to pick the starting team but difficult with the subs. I overloaded the midfield positions on the bench as I thought that was most vital for how Barcelona play and the work we needed in there."

"It came down to a choice between Michael Owen and Berbatov and my view is if you`re looking for someone to nick a goal, Owen has the experience, which is why he took the spot."


Already the list of reported clubs interested in Berbatov is being formed!

Though I understand Fergie reasoning behind leaving Berby out I can't help but question what tactical variety having Owen in the squad has. Hernandez offers everything Owen does par experience and if it's not happening for Hernandez chances are it would never happen for Owen. Berby, despite his lack of work rate, does offer another approach to the game if the current one never worked.

He could have held the ball up for you guys, like Milito did for Inter when they beat Barca. Its vital for taking a break from all that controlled pressure Barca put teams under and Hernandez wasnt the man for the job. Poor decision by Fergie imo.

Berbatov? On his way out? But how could you get rid of the one player that is SO MUCH better than Carlos Tevez?

I was amazed at Berba's ommission last night, I would have thought he was a far better Plan B option from the bench, I could understand why Fergie went with Hernandez, though equally the idea of having a player who could hold the ball up instead of playing of the shoulder of the defender was a very sensible idea and it seems that Fergie had one plan and one plan only and if it didnt work he was fecked.

I would like to Mr. Berba's ommission last night, it is obvious that he has outside the starting line up now for all big games. I agree with my fellow Spurs fans comment that "Red Nose" had only one plan for this match playing the most forward player on the shoulder of the last defender. Hernandez and Owen are both this type of player, but if Berbatov had been on the bench another option would have been available. I felt the whole team selection of Fergie was poor, he did not try to match Barcelona in midfield, Park, Giggs, Carrick and Valencia did not work and he did not try to change it, but that is another story.

Its known here that I have never liked Berba but he should of been on the bench, that really was a crazy decision, what would Owen have brought to the game that Rooney and Hernandez didn't at least Berba can do something different when bothered.

Frankly, unlike the other train-spotting Spurs supporters on here who have given their sleep-inducing tactical opinions, I laughed my frickin' arse off that the uber-arrogant Bulgarian was omitted by McStalin. You can keep him, his bearded wife and caravan.
