Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
I cant help but smile about this one after the way he treated us to get his move to Man Utd.
But also im thinking if the reports are true about him having a 5 Mill price tag could all be forgiven and he be a bargain buy?.
Not for me, although if he ate humble pie and apologised to the fan's and took a pay cut from his reported £90k to £50k to show his eagerness to pay back ( got to be joking ) then there's no doubting his quality, and would prefer him to ADE, any day.
I would have liked to have seen Berba/VdV/Modric in the same team, with Bale/Lennon.
Didn't the rumours that linked Modric to Utd suggest that Berba may be used going the other way as a make weight?
I'm not sure a 'Berba' figure is the way that the Levy-AVB will go. He seems to old (with no resale value) for the comments made so far re youth (from http://www.london24.com/sport/tottenham/spurs_chairman_daniel_levy_explains_reasons_for_hiring_andre_villas_boas_1_1430126):
'...“I am delighted that Andre has agreed to become our new Head Coach,” Levy told the club’s official site.
“He has an outstanding reputation for his technical knowledge of the game and for creating well-organised teams capable of playing football in an attractive and attacking style.
“Andre shares our long-term ambitions and ethos of developing players and nurturing young talent, and he will be able to do so now at a new world class Training Centre.”
For 5 mil and the right attitude (ok, he'll always look languid, but as long as he ain't whingeing), I'll take him back in a heartbeat. no he doesn't fit the coming youth movement, however a youth movement needs some steadying sages in their midst to keep them focused (oh and did you see that volley he did against that SA tema the other day...the man's still got it...great save by the keeper to match...in fact, that keeper was making great saves all game...someone might want to go check him out!).
Berbatov...come back, all his forgiven (as long as your goals to games ratio stays where it is or improves...wink).
