Darren Bent has gone
In a deal worth £16.5 million, of which £1.5 million has been held back based upon future contingencies, Darren Bent has joined Spurs this morning. Of the fee received £2.85 million goes to the tractor boys, who presumably will be able to buy some new brake pads for their tractors.
Unlike Charltons previous record sale, the sale of Benty has been harmonious and no one at the Valley can have any complaints about a player who at all times has conducted himself impecably.
I wish Benty the very best and now he has joined a so called big club, perhaps those in power in the FA will give him a fair chance at international level, something both Errickson and McClaren have failed to do.
For the future Darren - Live, Love, Laugh and Be Happy!
To the board who have come under a lot of critiscism over the last 18 months, well done on a good bit of business. They said £17 million, which I interpreted anything from £12 t0 £15, so £15.5 with more to come is a good job well done. Now lets sort out the women.
Now a decent keeper and a goalscoring midfielder please Mr Pardew.
