Dimitar Berbatov: Has gone seven games without a goal

Dimitar Berbatov: Has gone seven games without a goal

Jol pulled off quite a coup in tempting Berbatov to Craven Cottage over the summer, with the enigmatic frontman making a move from Manchester United.

The Bulgarian forward shone during the opening weeks of the 2012/13 campaign, but he has now gone seven games without a goal as the Cottagers have tumbled down the Premier League standings.

There is a danger that Fulham could be dragged into a basement battle if they are unable to turn things around, and Jol knows appreciates that getting the best out of Berbatov will be crucial to their efforts.

He said: "If things are going well then everyone will be happy with him but if things are not going well then he can be unhappy.

"He is used to winning games at the clubs where he was so we have to talk to him. He has to put in the same attitude and work-rate that he always did before.

"When he does that there is no problem, but he is certainly a player who we have to keep on his toes. We hope he does well for us because we were very happy with him for the first few months.

"If we don't pick up the results we'll be in the same situation as five or six other clubs."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
