No. Rough guide,

Arsenal = sea
Villa = lake
Palace = pond
Leyton Orient = puddle
Brig*ton = toilet flush

I remember around 2005 when both Bent and AJ were rising stars, I was much happier we had AJ. Of course he's better than what we currently have, but at what cost?

I can well imagine that our resources are better spent elsewhere. I'd be surprised if we were seriously interested other than with a low offer, 'test the water' way.

His agent probably sees us a fallback, and a way to lure out other suitors - e.g. West Ham who'll pay much more.

your suggestion that he needed 360 golden opportunities i.e. roughly 6 per match is just not accurate, but if he manages to get into positions which give him 6 golden opportunities per game and he manages to convert them at a ratio of 0.57 goals per game then he can waste as many of the rest that he wants!
That Sunderland were creating 6 'golden' opportunities for 1 player alone each match must be why, since replacing Bent, they have gone on to win the PL and conquor Europe!

Every striker fails to put chances away and on other occasions they score goals they have no right to. I would he happy to call Bent rubbish if he comes in and scores 24 PL goals for us in a season! Before his move he had 8 in 20 that year.

They just got lucky that another team was willing to pay 18m for a player who needs 6 good chances to score a goal.

To be honest - the fact he managed to live 2 years in Sunderland is testament to his grit.

No chance of signing Bent unless he comes for 18k week

I don't understand how Parish saying 'we haven't enquired about that particular player' has changed to news that we've made an approach. It's bonkers

Summer plus internet plus premiership circus plus british media = total gobshite spewing frothily all over the place all the time, drowning everything in its noxious bile.

Sometimes I think we're all going to lose our capacity to reason and think and act so one day everything stops and we end up gibbering like baboons back in the trees, stabbing at our smartphones with stubby, de-evolving fingers. Probly over-reacting.

EN -who cares! If we have made an approach the press is right, if we havent made an approach perhaps the rumour will push his cost up to one of our competitors so win win!

Just because Parish has said we havent spoken to Bent, his agent or spoken to Aston Villa doesn't mean we haven't. Hes not going to tell people our targets is he?

I took from the interview that there was definite interest in Bent, just seemed like he wasn't confident it was a deal he could get done. I can't remember the exact wording but he said something along the lines of 'He's a great player etc but we haven't made any formal contact'
