The Darren Bent saga will no doubt carry on until January.
He`ll no doubt then be sold. Looks like Paul Lambert just doesn`t see him as his sort of player.
Shame the conspiracies are being made up to cover it all though. It suggests our manager is a patsy and that the board pick players. Sorry, no chance would Lambert stand for that. He`d not sit for it either.
I digress, for more on that, see: £6million Bent Rumour - As Usual - Nonsense!
Today`s story links him with QPR.
The Mirror have quotes from the London media`s darling, Harry Redknapp.
Lovely of him to talk about someone else's player eh?!
"We lack a bit of a cutting edge. It`s a lopsided squad, we could do with a couple of front men to give us a chance. I like Darren, I have no problems with him. I just made a comment that maybe I shouldn`t have. It was difficult, he didn`t like that and within no time he decided he wanted to go. But he`s a good player and he can score goals."
They also link, again, Liverpool and Fulham. Apparently he could be sold for as little as £8million although quite how they know that is beyond me, I can`t see our CEO or owner talking values to press, can you!?
Does look like he`ll be going though. Not sure where I`d let him go, certainly wouldn`t be to QPR though, we surely don`t need to send firepower to fellow strugglers? We want them to remain in the bottom three to keep us out of it don`t we?
Our poll asks, would you sell Darren Bent. Let us know! (bottom right hand side of site)
Seems 99% sure to me he'll go. I'd rather have seen him get a good run in the team with Christian Benteke.
