Tottenham Hotspur :Man United and Berbatov Negotiated Today


Here's my take on their story...


This just in from what must be a website even more spurious than my own... as per usual, my deepest thanks to Know It All, HH's very own Bulgarian voice of dark forebodings...


"Man United and Berbatov Negotiate Today

Manchester United are ready to pay 26,5 million GPB to Tottenham.


The official talks between the two English FC's start today in London, revealed topsport.bg. (I haven't included a link to this site as it's only available in Bulgarian...)

Representative of the ‘red devils' will meet Damien Comolli, the sport - technical specialist of Tottenham.The

negotiations will continue tomorrow also. On Monday is expected a meeting on higher level, between the two football club's bosses.Berbatov

is resting in the moment somewhere on the Bulgarian Black sea. It is not impossible for the Bulgarian world star to cease his holiday and to depart to England before June's end.

If the situation goes to a transfer, Mitko Berbatov should leave Tottenham's camp, he have to sign his contract with Manchester and start medicine examinations."

Why not take a minute and sign the petition at the top of this page?

I Really really hope this is as much crap as half the other rumours we see and hear each day. When we started looking at Bent I feared the worst cause i cant see berb,keane,defoe and bent being there and bent is a 'big man' as MJ likes. I know the lure of Man USA is a lot for anyone but this is a step back for us if its true

I hope to god it does not happen!!!

Life long SPURS fan here

If he goes then we are a selling club which means we will never win fook all.

Please Stay Berbatov we LOVE you!!!

This Bulgarian press nonsense is more made-up than a bint from Romford...except with no foundation. DB is not at the stage on his contract where Spurs have to sell...still three years left. No worries. However, Mikto Berbatov is available for transfer...

I don't see it happening. Why would we even consider it when we're financially stable and he has a good few years left on his contract. Why? WHY!!? Am I seriously missing something here because for the world of me I can't think why we would sell.

WHY!!!!?

Mitko Berbatov ? WTF is that, D. Berbatov's little brother ?

If he goes i will be gutted, a definate backward step, then again 30 million to get a replacement isnt bad business, but in my opinion losing the berby keane partnership will cost us 4th place

2 questions. 1)Why do the same people come on here and slag the site off everytime a story comes on,if you hate the site and think its just trying to get hits then dont come on the site! it states the site on the story so dont bother. 2)why do they also come on as anon? answers to both, they are sad lonely pricks with fuck all to do but hide behind a keyboard and still arent sure how to spell their names!!

Fash said...

I really hope this is untrue. If we sell berbs for 26 mill and buy darren bent for 17 mill, i think we should all just kill ourselves. Im hoping that Mitko is not a nickname for Dimitar in Bulgaria, but is infact his 9 year old sister, and she is about to sign for manchester united's ladies' team, where she will partner darren fletcher in central midfield.

Mitko is what his mum calls him. I think thats the name bulgarians generally associate with him too.

Paul, chill mate... I like Harry's site, always puts a smile on my face even when he is upping my bloodpressure, why do I come here...?

Harry its boring mate,
your blog is rubbish,
you said that our Kaboul deal had been finalised about a month ago; it clearly hasn't,
you said that Bent has signed; he has clearly not,
you made posts about Sneider, Petrov and Drenthe that had so many incorrect facts,
stop wasting everybodys time Harry,
stop guessing who we are going to sign and wait until THE OFFICIAL SITE has posted it for real like us real supporters.

Dimitar Berbatov said...

Hello my fans,
I would just like to tell you all that these stories are not true. I am enjoying my time at Tottenham and it makes me unhappy to hear my name spoken like this. I can say now that I have a long contract, I am happy and you guys should not worry. We can be champions in these comming years and I very much want to be here for that.

See you all next year at the lane.

Lets make this more interesting as berba will NOT go to the mancs. IF HH is correct, I'll buy you a season ticket. If you're wrong, I want £800 for my shelf ticket!

I'lll drop you my email adddress HH if you wish to discuss further...?

Anonymous said...

Paul, can't fault your logic there mate, although Harry does seem to have a sting in his tail as well sometimes....! We should just all get along eh?

Berba will be going nowhere for at least a year unless the wheels completely fall off between Sept and Jan and someone offers to pay serious dough...!

How do I know this...? Because Levy and Jol both made confirmed statements attesting to the fact that we are not a selling club and they never state anything unless they know that they are safe and they also know that all hell will break loose (or freeze over HH!) if they do...

Just a small point on the transfer front. it is unlikely spurs will announce any transfers until 1st july now.

Anonymous said...

still can't see this happening this year, they couldn't offer us enough money. I was racking my brains trying to think if there were any players they might offer us as a sweetener as well as cash and I suddenly had a horrible thought. Carrick! Why are we chasing Bent so much? Why have we not been linked to any holding, creative midfielders? Man u have just bought Hargreaves. Still don't think it will happen, just the paranoid musings of a fan who doesn't ever want to let Berba go!

emad said...

But why 'next year'? or did he mean next season which is in less than two months.

Hang on, I can't type for laughing...

I sincerely hope you are cc'ing your comment to the Sports Editor at every tabloid in the UK too...

Or that will make you even more of a pomous twit than you clearly are.

Oh and I ought to add as you need it explaining as you aren't bright enough to work it out, the posts on here focusing on European talent were just that and not billed as tips on who we were going to sign.

And you left Gareth Bale off your list.

I dont know what your all worried about! Berbs has just posted above saying his staying! Thats sorted! No more transfers will go through now until July - That is official!

as bout as likely as us selling Berbatov, i am a lifelong yid and if we are stupid enough to sell our prize asset then we are white flagging any ambition we have and i will give up being a spurs fan and get my gran to teach me knitting instead

Fash said...

Dimitar, I think we would all appreciate if you could also confirm that you will sign an 8 year contract, and that we are also signing Van der Vaart, Sneijder, Kaboul, Davies, Wilhemsson and Baines tomorrow. That way we could all get on our with our lives. Can we please also confirm that Murphy and Ghaly are moving to arseanal?

DP said...

Harry, can I just add I think it's spurious too, be what is not is your link for the Bulgarian medics petition.

I trust that all those leaving comments will also spend a 20 seconds to sign.

I'm sure Dimi would smile at you for reproducing this story and for posting the petition link.

Well done and good luck.

Mighty Yid said...

7.30 again Harry,
no need to get personal Harry,
I'm just saying that there is no real need for this site,
and right i left Bale of the list, because he is one in about five signings you got correct, its like me saying:
"we're going to sign Ronaldhino, Quaresma, Ronaldo, Tevez annnd Marlon Harewood" and then we sign Marlon Harewood, I'm hardly the the massiah.
What need is there to just sap the life out of every story you can make up, its far better just hearing the result the day it happened.
When we signed Bale i drew no great joy because people like you sapped the life out of the story so i had an idea we might sign him already, whereas no body really knew Man-USA would sign Anderson because people didnt suck the life out of the story.
You need too start sticking to the facts,
sure a good deabte about who would be suitable to fill our void on the left midfield, but enough with the "My friends, dads, brothers, friends, sons, P.E teachers, wifes, dads dog walker heard Martin Jol on the phone to Ronaldhino and we have agreed to swap Ghaly for him."
so stop searching youtube for the next wonder kid pitted with some dodgy hip hop/dance song in the background and start sticking to the facts

I can catagorically tell you that Dimitar Berbatov will NOT be leaving WHL...things MAY well change at the end of next season, hence another reason to have Bent in place but he will be a Spurs player for 07/08...i dont know why you believe the bulgarian equivellent of the Beano, its has as much credibility as the Sunday Sport...seriously guys, Kaboul is a done deal, fact, Bent will more than likely join, ive even heard from a member of the first 11, last sat at MC's wedding that "Bent is a done deal", honestly you guys....UP THE YIDS

Why do people continually slag of this website and other websites alike. You know when you click the links that it is going to be rumours.

Take a a bit of your own advice, if you don't like to read these rumours then, like i read on a previous post - Wait for the "official" news.

It's all a bit tedious from these so called "true" tottenham fans.

Personally i think you are all deginerates.

If we was Jol we'd take Rooney,Ronaldo and 50mill cash (plus a small bung of course)for the much vaunted Berbie

Plus we are all shareholders and want to buy new holiday homes so the extra dividends would be handy - as was the pile we got from Carricks move

Who needs Berbie when we have Keane!!!

Harry, I like this site but all you are doing is making my days at work harder with this toilet.

It's just stirring up rubbish that is going to get my mates of other clubs excited and annoy me until the start of the season.

I really see no benefit for anyone by putting this on. I can imagine all you are doing is trying to get a greater hit ratio for your site but........ from who? Utd fans? Arsenal fans? Where are your principles man?

If you continue like this you may as well go to the Daily Express. Good luck with your 'Diana death evidence to be revealed?' stories in the future.

Anonymous said...

Berbatov has always stuck by the fact that he wants to stay and he loves the club, however spurs is run by businessmen. If they think they can treble their investment on Berba by selling to Man U then THEY (ENIC/Levy) are the ones we want to worry about, not Berbatov. They have said they will only sell if its in Spurs' best interests and they might see £30m in the bank as a Spurs interest.

I personally will consider sending my membership back to Spurs the moment it arrives if they sell Berba. They already are one of the most expensive clubs in the prem to watch and it will cost £30m+ to replace Berbatov.

Also Harry is there any way you can get the Bulgarian page translated?

Calm down, ladies and gents. Here is the voice of truth to bring you the hard facts and open your eyes.
Told you he wants to go but he’s not going anywhere.He’ll stay there and rot. Call it a curse. Again. He doesn’t deserve any better. Cause he doesn't fool me with all that soft talk and gentle behaviour.
But there’s one thing he can do, being such a generous soul . He can get the nurses out of Libya all by himself. Just sign a new contract with Spurs ( a hot one) and give the new money to the families of the dead Libyan children. Being a Unicef ambassador and all , that would be lovely!
When will you realize that high profile causes are only good to promote those who defend them, specially when you’re famous. When you really want to help people you don’t wear armbands, or sign petitions or go to tv broadcasted rallies. You do things quietly and secretely, you help those who need your help around you, because the real charity begins at home. This is all politics and publicity. But the average John and Jane Doe get the feeling they matter, just because they sign a petition. You want them out, get the Money. Or get a life.
Yeah, H, Manchester United can be hell to you ( and it’s full of red devils). But that’s too good for dear Berby. He stays with Spurs, i.e., in Purgatory.
And To call spurious to a News Agency as news BG is, that's pathetic. But the news itself is bullshit. And that Sofea Jane person is bullshit too. If he can buy himself out for 25 million why would Man U pay more? Are we all retards, or what? Stop playing games with us and get a life too.

Is it just me who thinks Darren Bent is drastically overrated? He scored 31 in 68 for Charlton, but how many of them were penalties? And almost every goal I've seen him score have been one on ones with the keeper where he's beaten the offside trap. Admittedly, Defoe is always caught offside, but at least he can ping them in from outside the box, skin a man etc.

In my view, Bent is a waste of money because we have Defoe. Who agrees, disagrees, couldn't care less?

if we buy bent and sell defoe and make a loss somebody at Spurs really needs to have a long hard think about whether they belong in the football business.

The Future of WHL

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tottenham Hotspur is North London’s Football Club! we Should always look at ways of maximising the income of revenue for the club, either through increasing the capacity of WHL or rebuilding from scratch on the original site, Competition is healthy and arsenal have been ahead of us for honours for many years.
We have a stable board, management team and playing staff, and I have complete confidence that we are on the verge of great things.
However living in Islington close to the emirates stadium, I can’t help at being envious of our footballing neighbours 60,000 seating state of the art stadium; therefore I would lean towards a brand new stadium of our own, However what I can't stress enough is that we are Tottenham Hotspur kings of White Hart Lane!

Don't surrender North London

Come on you Lilywhites !!!

And I'll tell you who make me laugh the most, not the half wits who are offended by the fact I would dare to reprint such a nasty unthinkable tale from the Bulgarian Beano...

When considering the value of Bent, it's worth considering the effect the new TV deal has had.

With every English club now having more money, the relative value of any player they want to buy has also risen, whether that transfer is a domestic or foreign one.

Bent might have been truly worth a few mil less last year, as were Bale or Kaboul, but everyone sees Spurs as a successful, ambitious English club with a bit more cash to spend this year. And the willingness to do so.

So the price goes up. Same as it will for every other English club. No point quibbling.

Best to get it done quick coz if Spurs want to succeed like they need to in order to retain Berbatov, they'll need a good start. And early buyers will also face a price premium.

Anonymous said...

Berbatov's the most inventive player at the lane since Gazza. I can't believe Levy will let another quality player go to Man.U.

I'm sure Dimitar will stay loyal for one more season, the respect he had from the Leverkusen mob said heaps about the man.

If we don't qualify for Champ League next season he'll be off. It's fair enough to expect him to attempt to win major honours, but hopefully not with another English team!

I'm going to pre order next seasons shirt with his name on - although £60 a bit steep Levy!

AllWhite said...

Well, after www.topsport.bg have published news (or rumours) that M.Und and Spurs are in negotiations about Berbatov, some of the big TV's in Bulgaria dublicate that.

Harry, I do get the impression that you would like Berbatov to be sold in order to justify your reporting of this developing story. Obviously, Man Utd are interested, this is well known. But your drip-drip of news from back street bulgarian pamphlets can only be explained by a wish to pbe proved right.

HENRY OFF TO BARCA!...now thats more like it...although the counter effect of barba leaving would be equally bad for us...come on Berba one more year and we can reach that top 4 place now the arse are cracking. I love it when a plan comes together.

Harry me ol mate, hope you're wrong on this Berba thing. Must say can't see this happening though for at least one more season. However much Berba would love to join the Mancs and the glory hunt etc, it would put the clubs ambition and credibility in serious jeopardy, and that alone should ensure Levy, Jol and Comolli pull out all stops to prevent that from happening now, no matter how much the wonderboy throws his toys out of his pram, no one should be able to push our beloved club around. Plus Berba is only 26, one more year and at 27 he will still be at his peak and by all means free to join the Mancs if we do not meet his worldclass expectations, that would be a little more acceptable/understandable even in this age of skull duggery and betrayal.

Well, H, dear Sofea's double is right: it's all over the TIMES, so I'm not sending you any Bulgarian links, cause they're just copying the Times.
But I think dear Sofea should sing the song till the end, cause this is very irritating. The clause of 25 M is no longer a secret. Spurs want more. Fair eenough. But Man U are not giving more than 27.5. All that Berbo has to do is a simple phone call. Jesus, the guy gets on my nerves, he's so slow!!!We need action, not reaction, please. Get this over with.

Just a touch of culture, folks, concerning the gent's name.

Dimitar is the Bulgarian/ Macedonian form of Demetrius, which is a Greek name connected with the goddess Demeter, a kind of Mother Nature.

Mitko is a short name for Dimitar, just like Bob for Robert or Ted for Edward. It's not only his mother who calls him that because it's not a family name. It's universal.
