Whatever may or may not be going on with Darren Bent and his future at the club, it seems reliable claims that he stormed out of Villa Park are as accurate as ever, I wonder if Leveson fancies looking at sports journalism?
Contrary to the original report by Talksport, and then jumped on over the last hour by online media outlets, if Bent ‘actually’ stormed anywhere it appears it was to an executive box – so not quite the storm they’d have liked to have painted.
But hey while we are making things up, should I posit that maybe the club have employed a Darren Bent look-a-like to appear on camera post this apparent ‘storming’.
More recent reports covering this suggest he stormed off before returning just before kick off, which is convenient isn’t it.
I wonder if any of our players ‘threw’ the kick it out t-shirts to the ground in disgust today as well.
Oh well, we can put that one to bed but hopefully both the player and the club will clear it up so it doesn’t become another ‘fact’ that festers amongst the fans.
What will continue to confuse and concern many fans though is Bent’s continued lack of involvement in the team. If Paul Lambert believes our starting threesome offer more as a unit than involving Bent that’s fair enough, but Bent is a threat so it makes sense to many that he’d be there to have an impact if the game reaches a point where a snatched goal would deliver a reward?
