About The Table
Berbatov averages a very high goals per game rate, in fact Wayne Rooney's last year was about 1.1. When you see the stats, you have to understand that Berbatov was always the 2nd or 3rd choice striker on the pitch, so he didn't get the quality of crosses in, or get enough of the ball to get a Rooney like goal tally. This will change dramatically with Fulham. Sir Alex's insisting to use Berbatov as a sub hurts United, but with Fulham going to fully utilize his skills, Fulham won't even notice that Dempsey is gone. According to the stats, he should average about a goal a game now that he will be the main striker. He will easily get over 20 goals, provided that he doesn't get injured.
We can conclude that A. Berbatov will be a star for Fulham, and will most likely have a high goal tally. B. Fulham will prosper with Berbatov. C. Sir Fergie should have kept him.
