I'm a Bent fan

Everyone is saying we need a big, lanky striker and although Marcus Bent isn't the typical target man, I'm sure he could forge a very good partnership with Clinton and he would also give us some extra height up front.
I was very sad to see him go, as I felt that the Bent/Jansen partnership would have been very successful.
I reckon we may be able to pry him away from Sheff Utd, since he never wanted to leave Palace in the first place and Sheff Utd were certainly short of cash last season (don't know about now though).
Unfortunately Sheff Utd would be looking to get about 3 million for him,especially given that Coventry had to pay 6.75 million for Bellamy.

I think it would be worth making a move for him, even if we have to pay 3 million. He would solve our goalscoring problem and could well get 25 goals plus.
