Bent become Spurs most expensive signing

16.5 m pounds for a player who is good but not great. He has been the one bright spot on Charlton’s squad and he has been in impressive nick last two seasons. But somehow I am still not convinced that he is an upgrade on Jermaine Defoe. Both score goals in different ways. Defoe with his speed and stunning shots and Bent with his impeccable instincts in the box.
Joe Royle, Bent’s Ipswich manager says that the future Spurs striker is the closest that England has come to a Gary Lineker but if that is the case then it is the best kept secret because Steve McLaren sure as hell hasn’t been using him and he should be if Royle is to be believed. Thus far he has only two caps.
Bent’s signing means that Defoe will see even fewer minutes or to seek a transfer. He may find himself back as a Hammer. Spurs are continuing to push hard to revamp their defense also and have signed Auxerre’s Younus Kaboul. Next on their sights is Baggies Curtis Davis, one of the most promising talents who a number of clubs have been courting for a while.

  1. Have we signed Kaboul then, 1st I´ve heard of it!! We may be close but nothing official!!
    I really do hope that Defoe stays, what a strike force!!

  2. Bent might not have been used in england because of the team he plays for. we all know that the england managers always favour big name club players, and sometimes just touch on the other teams once in a while.
    But i am very worried about who’s judgement it is to buy bent, and why at this price. They are saying he has the same skill level as Henry, or even more scary, but this price tag alone, they are stating that he is better then Berbatov who we spilled £12mill for! i think this and that french defend are both terrible calls.

  3. Another stiker? the only way this will work is that Keano plays at the point of the diamond midfield. For this money we should be buying a top class midfield distributor A La Carrick,Gazza,etc
