So, it's Berbatov. Ηe was Savvidis's great desire all these years, but eventually the flirt ended up to... marriage. Berbatov signed with PAOK. You repeat it and yet it doesn't seem believable. If someone wants to check the real dimension of the transfer, should better look the sizes : PAOK did the biggest transfer of their history. A player that is above their limits. There is no clue that can really prove what kind of excess has been made.
Berbatov will not run, will not press the defenders till the end but he is going to make tricks and score goals that "Toumpa Stadium" has never seen before. Fans will fill the stands, jerseys and season cards will be sold only for his sake. There is no "but" in his case. The case is if the Greek Championship can stand Berbatov.
Neither in terms of playing nor for the pitches. We know that. Berbatov right now looks like a guy with a tuxedo claiming: "Here are the fields. Climb on the tree and bring down the olives".
A suicidal mission in every aspect. Because the possibilities to lose are many. Too many. He can humiliate every defending duo but days will come that he will feel like... Tudor. The Croatian manager was told about that but he did not believe it until PAOK played Skoda Xanthi(the referee calls did not affect the result of the match but the way it was played... or not). And then he watched Olympiacos versus Panionios. A shock. The same thing happened to Anastasiou that grew professionally abroad and the last two years in the Super League was among penalties, stadium rigs and Dromikaitio.
In recent years, there has been another justification: "Make investments and then talk". So, according to this paranoic logic that can not be adopted now that Savvides has the most expensive employee of the Super League may he request the 50/50? Does he have the right?
Because rates, according to the systemic logic, are these: If you dont invest money, you have no right to complain. AEK for instance did not acquire a forward and they should be pleased with a 30-70 in referee calls . If AEK is mischarged a penalty, Melissanidis will be responsible for not singing two forwards to beat the referees too. Right?
Panathinaikos landed Essien and Sanchez so they deserve a 40-60. If PAOK wanted the 50/50 in referee calls, they should have bought 5 or 6 players that cost 2 million euros annually.
We have heard that before and here we will hear them again. The tale has the same dragon and understands nothing from Berbatov, Essien, Bouonanote or anyone else. For years it has been cultivated in minds that the referee calls are the excuse for the failures of those who do not invest. By saying that constantly, some fans may believe that for their own teams.
Now that the last argument has collapsed it would be interesting to hear what else the extermination mechanism will think for Greek football. Especially when "kamikazis with black" show up.
To invest while you have more income than expenses each year, it's not that great. You deserve the applause when you spent money to sign great players and ensure ... second or third place. Meanwhile, the referees and Greek Football Federation fight every week to prove you crazy.
