OK you may think woah Ian, you are really talking shite this time and maybe I am.
However this post on VT by Mukka_avfc certainly got me thinking
I dont know if this is true or if its already been posted but has anybody got infortmation on this?
I read on the SAFC board after the game saturday that it was common knowledge in the north east media that moves were being made for the sale of him but i just took that as them still being bitter but then today i was speaking to my mate at work whos brother has quite a few contacts in the midlands media through Uni and he was told today QPR have already made contact with Villa about Bent.
Apparently Bents been showing the signs in training that he did in his last days at Spurs & Sunderland.
Anyone got any knowledge with this? I hate to post such a negative thread but im just sick everyday of hearing negative things coming out of our club.
Well it is obvious to anyone watching us that Bent does not fit in with the Mcleish style at all. It is also known that Bent brought an house in Cambridge which is of course way outside the new 30 mile rule they have imposed. I have had discussions about Bent, some people are sure that he would be sold. I have said thought to sell him some team neads at least £20M and no team has that at all, is QPR one of them ?
Bent has come in for some criticism but we should always remember what he saved us from and what he does. For Mcleish to make him into anything other than a predator shows Mcleish shocking lack of knowledge of players. If Bent does not fit the Mcleish ‘style’ he should be dropped.
If better still realise in Bent we have a 20 goal a season forward and play to his strengths.
EDIT – Just found this thread on the Sunday ‘Ready to go’ forum saying the same thing
