Well, these results are pretty clear!
We asked following the press reports linking our striker out (see: Darren Bent Gone By In January Transfer Window? )
Would you sell Darren Bent?
Poll Date: 14 Oct 2012
Suggested By: JP Fear
Yes, in January 14%
NO, relegation if he goes 8%
Yes, but not until the summer 4%
Meanwhile, there was a brief quote in The Express with reference to the exit reports:
A Villa spokesman said:
"There is not a problem," adding "The manager has explained why he has not selected Darren for the last two games and has said his door is open if the player wants to discuss the matter."
Bent had said not long back that it had been 'a crappy few weeks`. I`m not sure why a few Villa fans then slated him for being sulky etc. He was only saying! He had lost his Villa captaincy, he`d not been named for the England team squad and he was dropped despite scoring v Southampton and again, having come off the bench and scored against WBA, again found himself on the bench for the Spurs defeat.
I don`t think he was out of order expressing that the last few weeks hadn`t been good for him? He hasn`t - as far as I can see - criticised the manager, or Villa OR said that he thinks he should be an automatic choice. Just that he isn`t exactly happy sitting on the bench.
I guess it calls into question what you want. Do you want players happy to sit on the bench or players chomping at the bit to play and not just collect their wages!?
