Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
what are the consequences....will he be resentful.....not give 100%....be viewed as a traitor by fans and fellow players he could be a liabilkity....or could he knuckle down and give his all?....what is the general opinion?
...personally i think it best he goes ,we get some replacements....AND QUICK!!!
Derek, I think the general opinion would be he will have to play and give his best to the club after all Spurs will be paying his wages.
I don't think there is any doubt that if he doesn't leave before this transfer window close's, he will in all probability leave in January - he will have to impress any prospective managers wanting to buy him in the meantime!!
If the deal to transfer Keane to Liverpool fell through, I'm sure he would have given his best for Tottenham - it is just the kind of player Keane is.
However, with Berbatov it is different, his attitude and mannerism's on and off the pitch show that he does not care what other people think of him so long as he gets his transfer to Manure!!

Hi, I too have been a spurs fan for sometime, 1957/8 season, and I realize how much money is the driving force in the SPORT!!! nowadays. Seems such a degrading influence on peoples morales. There does not appear to be many players who stay loyal to their club. It is not just the foreign imports either. Let's hope Ramos sorts things out soon. If Berbatov stays make him earn his money and deduct from his wages if he doesn't give 100%. Come on you whites, why don't we bring make McNamarra's Band, haha. It wouldn't bring back loyalty though!
hi mike s....we both have been fans for a long time,me since 1948....so i am in for love of the club....not pure glory...we have had both triumph and tragedy....but we stuck to the club....we moaned and we suffered but we stuck.....apart from a few exceptions the players these days(.particularly foreigners) seem purely mercenenary and self seeking.....you can argue that is a job and they have ambition like any other employee.....but it rankles.
....campbell hurt ....so did keane.....we give loyalty and we expect it....is that naive?
