How is Bents form at the moment??

Missed a penalty that could have changed Derbys fortunes in getting the playoffs. Were down 1-0 at that point would have been 1-1......

just reported on Sky----DB9 has joined Derby County on a 2 year deal,

in the Telegraph it says

Darren Bent's £24m transfer fee and £65,000 weekly salary makes him one of the costliest flops in Premier League history

It may be that Villa will be glad to see the back to see the back of the England international, who cost them £24m in transfer fees and add-ons, and has been sitting pretty as their highest-earning player, on a salary of around £65,000-a-week.

Even taking into account the wages saved from Bent’s loan spells at Fulham, Brighton and Derby, it is estimated that he will have cost the club £35.8m in total over the course of the four-and-a-half years he was in the Midlands.

Each appearance has cost the club over £586,000, with each start coming in at a whopping £796,000.

Purchased for his goalscoring ability, Bent netted against Manchester City on his debut for Villa, but has been profligate since, scoring just 21 league goals in the 1,603 days since he signed.

That’s a goal every 76 days, or every two-and-a-half months, at a cost of £1.7million per goal.

He was largely uninvolved in Villa’s play when he was on the pitch, averaging just 21.5 touches of the ball per game - with a 'touch' defined by Opta, the Premier League's official statistics suppliers, as an action that affected play. Incredibly, that means each of his touches for Aston Villa have cost the club in excess of £27,000.

Derby have now snapped him up on a free

oh well he did keep us up once (or twice)

Best of Luck Benty! still remember the goal against Citeh!!

“Each smallest act of kindness, reverberates across great distances and spans of time --affecting lives unknown to the one who’s generous spirit, was the source of this good echo. Because kindness is passed on and grows each time it’s passed until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage, years later, and far away. Likewise, each small meanness, each expression of hatred, each act of evil.”

It was just Chris Herd's missus he was rumoured to have bedded - and a rumour was all it was.

You're doing some serious exaggerating tonight. What's wrong with you? Go sort your decking by moonlight.
