Typical: the groin injury to Benty came after our bellyache …
Just an occasional look at what people connected with or supporting other clubs say about Sunderland.
You’d think Spurs would rue ever having got rid of Darren Bent.
Ridiculed by ‘appy ‘arry, derided by many Tottenham fans, written off by the Londoncenritc press. So what did Darren go and do but join us, score goals at will and force his way into the England squad.
Time for a little humble pie from down the Lane? Er, not exactly.
This is from the Boys of White Hart Lane blog:
Personally, this blog thinks we did the right thing selling Bent when we did. He was never fully settled with us and was highly unlikely to have reached the heights he had reached at Charlton or he has at Sunderland. He’s found his level – he’ll do wonders at a lower mid-table club with fewer expectations.
Re-arrange the words “arrogance” and “insufferable” into a well-known phrase or saying …
Wouldn’t it be great if he came on tomorrow and scored a couple, just to prove a point? And went on to get a hatful for us against Spurs in the Premier?
Sod’s Law: just after I’d written that, the Northern Echo reported: “Bent sustained a groin injury in training today, adding to England manager Fabio Capello’s injury problems ahead of the Wembley match.
“The severity of the injury is unclear at this stage, and it remains to be seen whether Bent is also unavailable for Sunderland’s trip to Blackburn next Monday. ”
