Ferguson keeps the faith in Berba…but do we really not need a new striker?

I discuss Ferguson's tactical thinking when it comes to the upcoming transfer market. Is it worth being a miserly old man? Will he sacrifice the clubs success in doing so? Can Berbatov do the business? Or is a tasty new signing - like £45million rated Luis Suarez from Ajax - the only way forward?
