Darren Bent (Loan To Fulham)

Hes on 60k a week tho!

But that's about right for a premiership player these days in a club that should be pushing for Europe.

I think all footballers wages are too much but when you view it in line with other footballers He is good enought to command that wage IMO. He's too good for a bottom 6 club that would be looking to pay their players 15-40k a week but he's not good enough for a top club that will pay 80-150k a week.

Also bent is on 80k a week and if you add to that the 2 players you need to provide him with chances it's nearly £200k

Ability wise i would say he should command around 20k tops as there is no doubt technically he is very very very very poor, he is not prolific as never scored more then 13 prem goals even in our best days, pace wise he isnt as quick as we think as he is too bulky.

Bent has natural finishing ability hence why he would be a dead cert for England and can go to other top teams regardless of cost

(Not a dig btw)

In the right team bent is worth the 80k but at the villa he's not because we're trying to cut costs and the fact that we would have to build around him.

I've said loads that if we signed him when MON was in charge he would have been the final piece to the puzzle and I think we would have broke the top 4 and he would have got his 20 goals but in our squad now he'll never achieve it and will add very lIttle to the team unless we go out and but pretty much an entirely new midfield.

And on gabby I think it's very harsh to say he's that poor, he's definitely premiership quality and has just been suffering with form and the same thing bent has been, being in a shite team with shite tactics

Since his injury against Wigan we only got 2 goals from our strikers (Weimann on both occasions).

And you want to sell him?

the trouble is though that bent is only good if we can play to his strengths, and we cant, so for most of the time we are carrying him and it is like playing with 10 men.

I think bent is one of the best poachers out there, but we need quality wingers, Young and Milner anyone????

If Randy strengthens the midfield during close season then deffo keep Bent, if not, sell and we could buy 3/4 desent players.

You can't see the eyes of the demon......'till him come callin'

Bent can play to his strengths...He was scoring and 'poaching' goals when he was fit.....Sadly we dont have the players to 'feed' him...Gabby is not the player to feed Bent, Young and Downing were those players....we need some wingers and a midfielder who can read the game......sadly we have non of those at the moment.

If we would have had bent avaliable we would not be in this position, i guarantee that!!

We would have won at West Brom and at Villa against Bolton or at least a draw, he goal scoring is not in question but many see him as a Luxury Player, i just see him as a quality player who can help attract other players to the sqaud.

“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.”

i think you have defined one of his qualities in what you say as attracting other players, thats one of the reasons we need to keep him apart from his quality, we dont have that from gabby and he certainly wouldnt attract other players of any quality. if ireland carries on improving as weve seen, then he to could attract other players, the way some, and i say some, of our younger players are beggining to improve we may get away with signing about 3/4 more experienced and quality players then we could be looking towards a far better season than of late. but its all down to learner, if he dont play his part as he should then i fear the worst. and at the moment the worst is what i fear.

if we sell Bent that for me says we have a serious lack of ambition going into the new season, some have said he has only scored 9 goals ect, but look at the season, Bent has often been a lone striker while we have been happy to put the other 9 outfield men camped in our own half, the guy has been feeding on scraps all season, what we need is capable wingers that get the balls into him and a midfielder that will boss the area, for the most part of this season we have been far too lightweight all over the pitch, before we sell our best goal threat we need to work on feeding him.

lose bent and i think it will be more of the same next season.

worth a +1 --man would,nt disagree with any of that, :good: ----how many goals have we scored since that Wigan game?

to me we need a player with Bent,s poaching n sniffing ability----simples,

Gabby blows hot n cold, more the latter this season,

Emule yes his workrate has improved of late-----but then again his contract,s up i believe --and i can,t see him finding the net never ever again, what,s his goal tally this season? 1 i think ,on the first home game against Blackburn.

Weimann yes he chases and hastles --but seems to have been a wee bit injury prone for one so young--ever since he was crunched by his countrymen at Rapid Vienna

Fonz hate to say he,s looking less like a prem league player every time i see him,

So if we are to progress we need to keep Mr Bent and try to build a side around him----aint Charlie Boy supposedly a winger??

whats the alternative ? build a competative side around the young guns??----- i suppose thats feasible but not much to my liking,
