Bentley Still Determined To Leave Ewood

Bentley Still Determined To Leave Ewood

Blackburn Rovers manager Paul Ince has spoken with David Bentley, but it is understood that his stance on wanting to leave Ewood Park this summer hasn't changed, and he is still determined to leave.

Bentley has stressed his desire to move on to "better himself" at a Champions League club, which he also believes will enhance his England chances (as clearly these have been hindered by the fact he is playing at Ewood!!! Has he not noticed that he IS being selected for squads anyway!!!). However, so far he isn't getting many offers from these clubs as Liverpool seem to have cooled their interest (maybe they can't afford him?!?!) and none of the other Champions League three from next season have shown an interest!!!

It now looks like any movement will be to either Aston Villa or Tottenham Hotspur, which unless I am mistaken (as big as they BOTH are and could yet still be) ARE NOT playing in the Champions League. If he left for one of these two sides what would stop him deciding he wanted to move on again in a couple of years time if they don't make the Champions League either?!?!

As far as I'm concerned it is time for Bentley to go, we shouldn't keep him if he is unhappy, we have stood by him and this is how we are repaid. We should sell him to the highest bidder (others play this game so why shouldn't we!!!) He will not be going anywhere else to better himself (from the looks of it) he will merely be going to a bigger name club, which in terms of what can probably be offered to him won't be that much different to what is on offer at Ewood Park (UEFA Cup football aside next season) over the coming years.

Meanwhile some slightly concerning reports in the newspapers over the past couple of days say that Paul Ince could offer Joey Barton a Premier League lifeline at Ewood next season.

Barton is currently enjoying a holiday at her majesties pleasure, but with his Newcastle United future uncertain it is understood that Ince is willing to take him on loan for a year, with the option of signing him if all works out?!?!

Bents doesn't look like he will be making that much of a move forward WHEN he leaves us, but we now have to look at the financial benefits of selling him. He has made it clear he wants to go, so although Incey says that players that want to leave might not be able to its time for us to ship him out. I'm sick of him now to tell the truth and maybe his true colours are shinning through?!?! I can appreciate him wanting to better himself, but he WON'T be doing this that much by going to someone like Villa or Spurs (who ARE both big clubs, but not that significant step forward.) As for Barton (although probably not even true) think again Incey!!!

If he wants to play for the club he supports then come out and say that, Not I'm too big for your club I've done all I can here (1 season at mo), he took loads of heat over his U21 withdrawl we defended him to the hilt. He has never publicly stated he wants to play for his boyhood team, if liverpool came in he would give the spurs the elbow, without thought.

Fair enough. Well you have Sky and their pound signs to thank for the state of current footballers, who cares about us poor old fans?! But I agree about Barton, perhaps start up another FA campaign "Kick Barton out of football". Also how would he play in evening games with his ankle bracelet and curfew?!

I dont want barton. And Bentley is ruining the image of a Blackburn Rovers player... modest and hard working is what we expect.

Hey if barton can put his problems behind him, then he's still a good prem player, six months of picking up soap bars should calm him down a little bit!

Bartons talent isnt in question, he has the same problem, in a sense, as Bentley, they are big headed and think they can do and say as they please. Bentley, if he goes to a CL team, GL to the lad, if he leaves for anyone else, he is no better than Lucas Neill, another Liar, sorry misguided soul. Barton needs to stay the hell away from Ewood, we do not need a dressing room cancer!
