      Aston would be cool but don’t you think “…..online petition anybody” is a little long for a middle name? 🙂

    I personally think Fulham will suit bent perfectly. I have a feeling if he goes there he will score 12+ this season. Not a bad return for 6 mil. Great for us to get a player on high wages who clearly is surplus to requirements off the wage bill too. Just Given and Ireland to go after which would give us plenty of room for more transfers.

    I get the feeling that we have done all our dealing in this window regards players coming in. Plan now is to get rid of those not in lamberts plans. If all can be got rid by end of this window it may have us in a position of strength to add a big player in January to push on second half of next season. Just my thoughts.

    anyone else think same as me that ~ andreas Weimann will b or already is better than darren bent at wot they do best, weimann is already a top finisher with great positioning, also will improve like a fine wine with these attributes, difference with weimann he works his socks off 4 the team while DB is innit 4 himself. just my opinion

      Think his workrate, and all round game is better than bent his finishing is good to but I think vents finishing is a more consistent as weimann misses a few sitters but that’s to he expected at this stage he will improve this season. Think weimann is the real deal though

    like this one u mean ~ all strikers miss occasionally plus weimann was kindoff wider positioned last year he would most definitely thrieve more up the middle

    The sooner we can get the bomb squad off the books the sooner I think we’ll see a couple more signings before the end of the window, if it doesn’t happen I don’t think we’ll see anyone else.

    I don’t understand why people are saying they’d like to keep Bent.

    He won’t play second fiddle to Benteke, and Benteke scored more in one season than Bent has in 2 and a half for us.

    Add to that Benteke’s hold up play and the fact he contributed to Gabby and Weimanns goal tally, i have to say, it’s a no brainer for me.

    Yet a lot of you still complain.

      I’m with you Guest, ok we owe the guy a debt of gratitude but every dog has its day but that dogs days are long gone at VP.
      Bents one dimensional play don’t fit in with PL’s plans, yes he score goals but imo his poor workrate always leaves you a player short.

        It just seems to be another swipe at the club, as per usual.

        This whole “Bent scores goals” thing, yes he does, but, Benteke scored more in his first season that Bent did in two and half, let’s think about that for a second, and assisted more, therefore, there is no argument for keeping Bent as i said before, he wont play second fiddle.

        So to any of you moaning about keeping Bent, think on.

          Don’t think there’s any doubt we would rather have Benteke but what if he got injured or had second season syndrome. I’m not saying he will but if it happened bent would be a great replacement. At the end of the day when Bent on his debut got that goal v man city we were all ecstatic me included and we all went on what a great buy he was. Ok we have a better all round striker now but that dosnt mean we have to turn against bent.

            OohAh, are you broken mate?

            What part of “he will not sit on the bench and be second fiddle to Benteke” do you not understand?

            Again, to clarify, HE WILL NOT SIT ON THE BENCH AND PLAY SECOND FIDDLE TO BENTEKE, THEREFORE, ONLY ONE CAN STAY AT THE CLUB.

            Is that clear enough?

          2. OohAhPaulMcGrath July 23, 2013 at 3:40 pm .

            Yep I get that guest I’m just saying dont knock the guy

          3. Guest July 23, 2013 at 3:46 pm .

            Who is knocking him?

            You are only defending him because he’s out of favour with the club, i once remember you slating his style of play, you weren’t always his biggest fan, of course, now he has issues with the club he’s your new favourite player.

            You’ll be defending Ireland next, oh wait …..

            For what it’s worth, if he was happy to sit on the bench and was on half the wages, i’d keep him too, i imagine most fans would, but the fact is he’s on far too much money to warm the bench even if he was happy to do so, so it’s a non-starter.

            So all i am saying is, don’t knock the club for selling him.

          4. OohAhPaulMcGrath July 23, 2013 at 4:19 pm .

            I’m not knocking club for selling him I agree if he was on less wages id keep him. Iv always been a bent if you read posts of past couple years iv always said he is limited but bottom line is he gets u a goal and that’s what we bought him for

            Enough about your sex life mate, i don’t need to know the finer details 😉

            I think you forget half the things you post, it was only a mere couple of weeks ago you were slating the club for not keeping him, and i asked you which clubs could afford to leave an 70k + a week player on the bench, to which you retorted ‘the Sky 4 can’.

            This was in a week where you were heavily knocking the club left, right and center, and no matter how many times you play it down, you do always look for the spin.

    im not so sure anyone is saying we should keep bent, its clear to anyone there is no place for him under the new regime.
    people are just acknowledging he’s a great striker and im sure he will do well where ever he goes and I hope he does as long as he has a mare when he plays us but knowing football he’s bound to play a blinder clearing the ball off the line(like he did last season)only to run 90 yards and slot a goal of the season 98th minute winner giving his ‘new’ consistant 110% playing stile 😉

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
