Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
still an anxious 24 hours before he is unveiled as a tottenham player. still time for man u to sabotage the deal.
anyone seems him play, any video online etc?
Second top scorer in the german league, but is he any good?
Great signing for you guys. Good striker and will work well with Robbie Keane. Not sure how much we (United) were interested in him though, could well have been agent talk to up the guy's wages.
Be the end for Defoe???

End for Defoe? Could well be if we signed Mido but that's looking unlikely right now.
Glad to see he's finally fucking here, like Keano i've admired Berbatov for awhile and hoped one day he might come over to play for Spurs, now he has.
I think it also shows our intent to kick on and improve, can you feel the gooners getting scared for next season already LOL
Come on the Yids, and Barca tonight :D
He's here, signed at last
The Club can announce that it has reached agreement with Bayer Leverkusen for the transfer of striker Dimitar Berbatov for a fee of Euros 16.0 million. Personal player terms have been agreed. The player registration is subject to a successful work permit application and will be effective from July 1, 2006.
Bulgarian international Berbatov, 25, scored 21 goals in 34 matches for Bayer in the Bundesliga last season – the second highest goalscorer in the league.
Named Bulgarian Player of the Year in 2002, 2004 and 2005, Berbatov has scored 31 goals in 50 senior international appearances.
Sporting Director Damien Comolli said: “There were a number of clubs interested in signing Dimitar, clubs from France, Spain and the Premiership. We are delighted he has chosen to join us. He is a tall, skilful, highly-talented striker who not only has a proven track record of being able to finish, but also of creating scoring opportunities for team-mates.”
Dimitar said: “Tottenham is a club that is building something special. The squad has some terrific young players, an excellent manager and coaching staff and I am looking forward to playing my part.”
Berbatov made his name in Bulgaria with CSKA Sofia when he made his debut as an 18-year-old in the 1998-99 season.
Having scored 14 goals in 27 league games in 1999-2000, a run of nine goals in 11 games in 2000-2001 persuaded Bayer Leverkusen to sign him in January 2001. In the last three seasons he’s scored 16 goals in 33 league starts, 20 in 33 and now 21 in 34.
Berbatov made his Bulgarian debut in November 1999 and scored with his first touch in a competitive international in a World Cup qualifier against Denmark in October 2000. He has played Champions League football for Bayer Leverkusen including the final against Real Madrid in 2002 and was in the Bulgarian squad for the European Championships in Portugal in 2004.

Subject to a work permit. What's the betting that, knowing our luck, he'll be denied it?!? I wonder what the odds are on Mansion!!!
Fair play to Mr Levy for splashing out £10mil. Here's to a formidable striking partnership nexts eason with Defoe and Keane-o.
i know what you mean about the creating a yard of space,i really thought he looked pretty quick too.didn't see any headed goals-assuming that is just down to the video maker.anyone know if he's good in the air?like you said an anxious 24 hrs.

After seeing that video I am worried that Man U will ineed hijack the deal - anyone of his goals could have been scored by Van Nistlerooy, creating a yard of space in the penalty box, in teh right place at the right time that kind of thing. If he does come to Spurs and can replicate those sort of goals in the premiership we should have no trouble scoring goals left, right and centre!!
