Bent To Liverpool A Done Deal? Surely Not?

Bent To Liverpool A Done Deal? Surely Not?

Ok, it`s a quiet news day, I`ll bite!

McLeish has said he doesn't want to sell any players this January and especially not strikers.

However Mark Lawrenson has been talking about the 'massive rumours` in Liverpool saying that they have all but signed and sealed Darren Bent.

www.liverpool-kop.com say that Lawrenson was talking to BBC Radio 5 last night saying 'massive rumours` the deal is 'already done`.

As they say, Lawro would have inside sources at the club, they tend to believe him.

Not sure why, but I tend to think not to be honest. Done deal this quick? Hmmm. Then again, I didn`t expect Downing to be allowed to leave. I know he played his face up and could have become a bad apple but.... Errmmm. No, lost on this one!

Alex McLeish has said "I`m not willing to sell anybody at the moment but you don`t know what will happen" admitting they have had a few enquiries about players but warns "I wouldn`t be tempted to lose any of the strikers - strikers make the difference in this league."

Damn, so, reading between the lines, we`ve sold Bent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All that this does again is show we are selling club with no ambition, for the first time in 32 years ive had enough of AVFC!!!

Im not asking for 200m to be spent on players, but just to be shown by the owners that they care and do still have some aspirations!!!

Most kopites I've spoken too last few days are certain they are getting him. (And also claim you asked for Kuyt in return as part of the deal but that's not happening). That doesn't mean a lot though they are a delusional lot at the best of times.

The press certainly have wind of something. Sunday and Monday I hear TalkSport, BBC and Sky all talking about Bent and Liverpool like it was going to happen.

I've had my suspicions about this since he was sufddenly "injured" hours before we played Liverpool in December, and then went shopping. I wondered if a deal had been done, and part of the deal was that Bent didn't play that day. I know its conspiracy theories gone mad (and it wouldn't explain his absence against Arsenal & Stoke) but you do wonder.

If he goes, that's it for me.
