Revenge?

Revenge?

This afternoon, well 17:30 to be precise, Manchester United takes on Fulham in a 4th round FA Cup tie.
United supporters will be hoping that it is a tie we can safely navigate as we attempt to win a completion we`ve not won for what seems an age.

But, standing in our way is a certain Bulgarian who we know can, on his day, be a match-winner - Dimitar Berbatov.

Berbatov gave United some great service but a lack of first team opportunities saw him seek regular first team football, hence the move to Craven Cottage in the summer.

Sir Alex Ferguson, speaking about Dimitar, ahead of the clash, had this to say,

"He is their best player. I don`t think Dimitar was a failure here. I think he did a great job here."

"The problem is I had choices and at his age it`s not easy to be part of those choices when he`s not playing."

"He wanted first-choice football and we gave him the opportunity to go to Fulham."

"At his age it was the right things to do and he`s done pretty well there."


Will Dimitar come back and exact his revenge?

It remains to be seen!

FForget to close the bold redboy? :P Nothing but respect from Fergie to Berby. Whether Berby is a flop depends on what you deem a flop. Personally think he was, not his own fault though nor the media pressure. Berby was a luxury buy, one we never needed nor one that fitted into our system but one mans delusions that he was the reincarnation of Cantona felt we needed him. Fergie did isolate him from the squad when trying to integrate a new playing style which obviously never helped towards the end of his United career and is something I feel really sorry for him for. Still can't fathom why Fergie didn't cash in on him when it came evident to the world he had no place at the club, we could've got a much better return for ourselves and he could've got more playing time. Personally think that whilst he had one successful stint at the club in which he showcased his ability and dragged the club through a rough patch largely he was a flop. His scoring record wasn't bad but it didn't reflect a 30 mil outlay either and even then his goals weren't scored evenly throughout a season but were 2 or 3 goals in a single game or scored in games that were largely wrapped up. All the same that's all in the past and i'm pleased for him that he's doing well at Fulham and all the best to both for the future.
