      @@no_argumets4032 Berba & Hernandez only had 1 goal difference between them in 2010/11 but Hernandez was way more important scoring in quire a few more games and vs strong teams as well and in closer matches. A quarter of Berbatov's whole tally that year came in 1 home game that ManUtd would've won anyway without his goals.
      Tevez played for half the time and still scored way more 'important' goals and Tevez despite only being at ManUtd 2 years still achieved 2 of the main 3 things any ManUtd player under Ferguson for at least 4 years should achieve I.e Back-to-back PL's, FAcup, ChampionsLeague...(and it wasn't Tevez's fault he didn't get all 3) and Berbatov didn't achieve ANY of those in 4 years.
      The only players I can think of managed under Ferguson for at least 4 years who also failed to achieve any of those 3 feats under Ferguson at ManUtd were J.Evans, Rafael, D.Welbeck & A.Valencia and they're not exactly rated highly are they and altogether they all cost way less than Berbatov combined (3 academy players and they did much better for their ages and Valencia in 09/10 did better in his position than Berba did in his) and they still all did better for ManUtd than Berbatov did or won more PL's and 2 still went on to win FAcup which Berba never did for anyone.
      But the list of players who achieved at least 2 and many with 3 and some who achieved the feat of all 3 multiple times is huge. I easily reeled off about 45 players so there's probably more and I consider all of them more of a success at ManUtd than Berbatov heavily because of that.
      In fact most players who only had 2 of the 3 or less was heavily to do with Berbaflop.
      Berbatov only scored ONE goal vs a Top5 team in domestic major competitions in his ManUtd career.
      He only scored in THREE ChampionsLeague games for ManUtd (zero in knockouts) and he went 3 whole years without a CL goal from late 2008 to late 2011.
      His lame pen vs Everton FAcup semi-final 2009....his lame performance when he came on vs Barca in CL final that year....his misses and lack of goals in general in the season that cost ManUtd the record 4 PL's in a row 09/10, his misses at 0-0 in the virtual FAcup final 2011 vs ManCity are just some of many of his howlers at ManUtd.

    People sleep on this guy because he wasn’t some loudmouth that ran around like a headless chicken for 90 minutes. He was that good that he never needed to. Silky smooth first touch that barely ever let him down, he made it look ridiculously easy in killing a long ball. Damn twinkle toes was smart with his positioning and had a pass on him too. Wish he came United sooner. Ronaldo, Rooney, Tevez and Berbatov struck fear into the minds and hearts of defenders everywhere.

    That skill against west ham, the timing, balance, elegance and execution was phenomenal. Berbatov is magic. One of the greatest the Premier league has seen without a question. His contribution to man utd 2010/11 title win is not given enough credit. Between Berbatov, bergkamp and cantona when it comes to the best first touch in the Premier league.

    Back in the day he was called as a "lazy" player I clearly remember, all my friend would say so back then when I said that this guy add another dimension of Man United front with player likes Rooney, Ronaldo and Tevez. He's a natural finisher, had a world class touch and control, and superb positioning, thats why its okay if he's not run so much in a game at that time.

      These days players have GPS devices on them and if they don't cover 10 miles per game with 30 sprints they are sent to Saudi Arabia or the US. If I want to watch running there's track and field.

    Until 3:00 and Berbatov scored that bicycle. I was playing while my dad was watching the match, I stopped and ever since I had been Reds.

    Two years ago I talked to someone who knew nothing about football, yet acted as if they did and I wasted half an evening arguing with that person. Later that night I saw youtube video about Berbatov and had an idea. "The Berbatov Test" was born. It sounds more profound than it actually is, though. Basically, I just ask them if they know who Berbatov is and when they don't, their opinion on football is invalid.
