eagle69 28-05-2013 08:37 AM

TC EAGLE 28-05-2013 08:38 AM

Can imagine AV wanting 8m+ for him. No thanks.

They won't get anywhere near that much.

Danny boy 28-05-2013 08:55 AM

big ego with high wages no thanks

Seagull Eater 28-05-2013 08:55 AM

lets invest in youths on the up.

Gooders 28-05-2013 08:56 AM

I did briefly think of him last night but nah - exactly the type of player we do not want to be in for - too much money and not enough motivation, for me.

Beneaglee 28-05-2013 09:03 AM

He'll be the big fish in the small pond, the way he likes it. Would score at least 20 goals.

Mad Raschic Ken 28-05-2013 09:29 AM

We're bound to make some loan signings. Not sure how long he has left on his contract at Villa, but if he's not going to feature for them they might well be prepared to let him out on loan. We're certainly going to need a goalscorer. My concern with him though is that he's not really a team player and we're going to need to do a lot of defending from the front next season. We won't be able to have the luxury of someone strolling around up front waiting for a chance in the box.

zonin2000 28-05-2013 09:46 AM

Default reaction is that this is exactly the sort of player we don't want. But if we could get him on loan at 50% wages... Bearing in mind our current strikeforce is Wilbraham, Easter, Appiah...

cpfc4evandeva 28-05-2013 10:28 AM

I don't think this is a bad shout.

Is he really a mercenary? The only club he left in acrimonious circumstances was Sunderland from memory... And I'm pretty sure they still got a bit of money for him.

cpfcfan1 28-05-2013 10:33 AM

Wages aside, people turning their nose up at this are crazy.

Hazzacpfc 28-05-2013 10:35 AM

You're bonkers if you don't want to sign what is the closest thing there is to a guaranteed 15/20 Premier League goals. Of course his wages will be huge and so will the fee, but he'd be great in our system.

The Omen 28-05-2013 10:35 AM

What has really gone wrong at Villa? Does anyone actually know?

Bent was looking like England's best goal scorer not that long ago, but has fallen from grace very quickly. Would be interested to hear what Villa fans say about him.

Think he would be a great signing for us, but I would imagine teams like Fulham would be in for him too.

PalaceMonkey 28-05-2013 10:36 AM

I think we need to spend about 6-8m on a striker, would be happy with Bent

-N.W.A- 28-05-2013 10:36 AM

Wages are a big factor though :/

firesign 28-05-2013 10:39 AM

despite everything he has scored 25 goals in 64 games at Villa which is a great return but he doesn't fit Lambert's style

papers seem to be suggesting he's going to Fulham for as little as 4m - but with wages of 3m a year (around 60k a week)
