Darren Bent distances himself from any suspicions that he might be a Spurs fan

By Harry Hotspur -

Former Spurs man Darren Bent has rather comically crossed a line with Tottenham supporters with a Tweet mocking fan reaction to our transfer business.

I’m no fan of Bent’s punditry, he lacks the fundamental authority that other faces in the industry bring to bear, such as Graeme Souness, to name but one. The now retired striker is entitled to his views on Arsenal’s transfer activity, but to snap at a Spurs fan on social media in the manner that he did, may not have been such a wise move.

The signing of Ivan Perišić would have been an inspired move by any Premier League side. The Croatian might well be 33, but he still displays Cristian Ronaldo levels of fitness and is still involved in games for this national side. Fraser Forster is possibly the shrewdest goalkeeping addition Spurs have made since Hugo Lloris.

‘You threw an open-top parade’ comment won’t do him many favours when asked to discuss Tottenham on talkSPORT, in the future…

Darren Bent distances himself from any suspicion that he might have a brain!

Funny, ex-players usually do back their old clubs, so I’d be interested to know who he actually does support.

*Sounds* a lot like the gooners here!

He is a boyhood Gooner, apparently.

Well, the reaction of some Spurs fans to any signing is often worryingly levels of excitement and optimism. Surely people should learn that after 23 years of ENIC, that your expectation levels are being stage managed?

Nonsense.. We’ve been doing good business… I wasn’t very excited back when we signed Bent though.

We didn’t sign anyone for over a year, no wonder our fans get over excited when a player comes in, and I find they do. What is ‘nonsense’ though is your suggestion that people are claiming that Perisic is a bad signing. Nobody has said that at all… Who’s said that?

More nonsense.. And yet again you’re putting your own thoughts in my mouth.. I did not suggest or state anything of the sort.
We signed Perisic and Forster. Bent made out that we have been celebrating these two like we have won the league which is ridiculous..
I stated that we’ve done good business. We have.
I’m excited and optimistic.
Conte and our players so far is the reason why.

You keep ‘worrying’ though.

I didn’t see an open top parade anyway.. There will be one at the end of the season though.. C O Y F S…. Perisic has two golden feet and delivers. Bent can only dream about playing and winning the champions league. He can dream about ‘open top parades’… Perisic has been there and done it all.

Seems strange that he would rise to the bait. Using Perisic and Forster as examples is also rather silly – both free, experienced and in Perisics’ case, still very, very good.

For what its worth, I think Arsenal have done some decent business – if they can get a CB and target man then they will be our biggest threat.

However, if we can grab a creative CM and a classy CB, then we may be Chelsea’s.

Bent is a tosser and a complete moron as a pundit. He is also a boyhood Arsenal fan, so his pathetic take on our transfer business should be treated with the contempt it deserves.

The now retired striker Darren Bent. Always thought he had retired early when he played with Spurs.

I have had the misfortune “listening” to him on “TalkShit”, he really struggles to string sentences together. Darren Bent is even worse at being a pundit than missing open goals. Dont feed that troll.
