The quotes in today’s press from Ramos have made me laugh. We have all known for weeks we need to let Berba go to Utd but only now we have lost our first two games, Ramos has decided to speak out.
“We need to get this matter resolved before the transfer deadline.
“If Berbatov goes, we will need time to sign a replacement. We want to have the best centre-forward we can possibly get.
“This is the first time I have faced this problem as a coach and the truth is I have found it a conflicting situation to be in.
“Of course, what has happened has had repercussions on the team and our results.
“Against Sunderland, for instance, we were only able to play with one forward and we didn’t have any substitutes for that player.
“Players go through physical problems all the time but in this case it’s a psychological issue which we have to deal with.
“If Berbatov works well during the week, maybe he will be able to play in our next game. If not, he won’t.
“But we cannot make that decision now. We can only decide that on the eve of the game.”
I’m a Ramos fan but please don’t give us all this bullshine now results have gone against us. If we’d have won both games, he wouldn’t have opened his mouth.
Don’t get me wrong, Ramos talking openly to the fans is something I would really appreciate but today’s speech is just to take the pressure off a bit because he’s knows it’s very likely Spurs will be bottom with no points after the Chelsea game.
The Sun have plucked Huntelaar’s name out of thin air today as our top target. I think there is about as much chance of us signing Andy Sinton at the minute.
I’ll leave you with a very interesting video about the Berbatov situation from yesterday’s Sunday Supplement http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQKLSjvQ3Oo
