Darren Bent (Loan To Fulham)

Sell Gabby, sell N'Zogbia that should amount to about 20 million straight away..buy a couple of decent wingers , there's your supply line for Bent.

He is the only proven goalscorer we have..We have to keep him .

Since 2006/07 season

Bent.....186 total games...... 99 goals.. 1 goal every 1.8 games

Gabby....226 total games.... 59 goals 1 goal every 3.8 games

Bent for me is the striker we need to hang onto at all costs. If we keep Gabby, then he needs to learn to become provider and concentrate on his passing and crossing abilities.

I can't decide if selling Bent would be a good or bad idea, he's a good finisher but he creates nothingand is only really of any use inside the six yard box, an area where we struggle to get the ball in the first place. To me it's not really a case of should we sell him or not but a case of who could we get to either play with him or replace him. Maybe someone like leon best would be good to have beside him, more physical but can move around the pitch and was playing well for newcastle before getting injured. and we'd probably get him on the cheap cos he's unlikely to get in the team now unless cisse or ba are sold

We need to keep players like Bent. People are quick to jump on his back but he pretty much saved us from the brink last season and this season he hasn't had the supply and then got injured, even so he still managed what, 9 goals? Gabby usually gets that in his best season. Sell Bent and we might aswell get used to relegation battles.

In gabby's best seasons he's consistently got 12-14 goals. Just saying.

Also you've answered your question as to why we should get rid, he hasn't had the supply!!! And can you see him getting the supply?? And if he gets the supply do you see him staying or would he jump ship like the rest??

I think if gabby gets back to form with a player next to him who is also a goal scorer but not at £24m (and before people jump on the add ons bit, if he stays he will reach these goals I'm guessing) at least we'll have a villa lad playing in our squad making us a better team who won't jump ship and upset the apple cart yet again

Not Gabby bashing but he has only had 3 seasons with double figures in all competitions, Bent on the other hand is a 20 plus a season goalscorer. If Gabby could refind his form then coupled with Bents ability that's a possible 35-40 goals a season just off those 2 alone. I think we have to hang on to Bent at all costs and concentrate on bringing in players that can provide the strikers with service that has been lacking this season. If that means selling N'Zogbia and Albrighton so be it, and if rumors are to be believed,MON is looking to table a bid of 12million for Gabby in the summer...We would be foolish not to take that and hang on Bent.

Correct me if I'm wrong but bent has only beat 20 goals in one season for sunderland in a season where I'm sure about 8 of those 20 were from the spot and many were in the same games

Are you trying to say Bent doesnt score other then penalties? Gabby would have a hard job putting the ball on the spot dont you think

Bent 04/05...20 goals

05/06...22

06/07...15

07/08....8

08/09...17

09/10....25

10/11....20

One season where he didn't crack double figures and that was at Spuds when 'ARRY used him as a sub more than anything...And your logic about penalties doesn't really hold credence...How many has Rooney got from the spot this season?...If they go in...they count!
