Only one man to man blame for Spurs' poor start to the season

Dimitar Berbatov. Yes Tottenham manager Juande Ramos is today blaming the club's bad start to the Premier League season on former striker Dimitar Berbatov. The Bulgarian international left White Hart Lane two weeks ago for Champions Manchester United in a club record £30 million deal.

But now we are four games into this new season and Spurs have yet to win a game. Ramos blames the confusion surrounding Berbatov's on-off deal to United as the main factor in their poor start to season. He claims that he should of got rid of him earlier to allow time for him to find a replacement, but that can't be the only reason why Spurs are lying rock bottom in the table.

Ok maybe Ramos has a point about the first game of the season, when he put Berbatov on the bench against Middlesbrough, but to lose at home to both Aston Villa and Sunderland is very poor. I don't care what the Spaniard says, the Berbatov saga should not affect you so much that you fail to pick up a point at home this season.

You can sign Berbatov for just £7.5 million in this year's "You the Manager" (above). With fantastic monthly and weekly prizes to be won and a special offer of 2 teams for the price of 1, now is a great time to get your team together.
