Darren Bent (Loan To Fulham)

A bit harsh IMO.. Out of all the overpriced players we have he's the only one I'd have on the bench. Completely removing a fully fit proven goal scorer from the first team was bad management IMO. Not saying we should keep him long term but we should at least get our moneys worth by keeping as a plan B. An expensive plan b YES, but I would rather have him as a contingency for Benteke than our current options. I don't think he's lazy, he's just not a Benteke type of striker..

When we look back in years to come we will say he was the right player at the wrong time, as many of us have said before. Everything else is just politics..

Yes he was the right player at the wrong time but that also brings in the fact that at the right time he was a far better player than he was at the wrong time.

He was never going to emulate what he did with other clubs at the villa because of a few reasons and one of those is that he's not that good anymore.

A striker that cost £24m a couple of years ago and now not one club is prepared to offer £6m for him.

Maybe Darren bent and those who think he is a top player should have a think about that, when you look at some of the players who have sold for £6m and a lot more then surely a 29 year old who has over a 100 prem goals is a bargain ? or is it that those of us who think he is a very limited player are right.

Why pay the club the price they are asking when Bent has been frozen out and know wont play. Villa were never in a position to make high demands as we want to get rid

If bent is the player some think he is then £6m is a bargain.

But why pay 6m to a club that doesnt want him??? Only an idiot would pay what Villa want for a guy who has been told to f*ck off

The debate is going off at a different tangent to my original point.

On your point I can't really argue as the fact nobody will cough up £6m proves you right........it also supports my original point.

I think what Dorset is saying is that the £6m IS the cut price, if bent is as good as some think he is then he's worth £10-15m easy

But Villa have obviously quoted the 6m so why bid that?
