Bentley Not Happy With Spurs Role.

Bentley Not Happy With Spurs Role.

Interesting news filed in the 'I told you so' file...

David Bentley is unhappy with his role in Tottenham coach Juande Ramos' new look Spurs side.

Bentley has been asking to play in his standard right midfield position but has been deployed on the left as well as in a central role as Spurs look to accomodate expensive names in their side.

At Rovers, Bentley was guaranteed a starting spot on the right and was guaranteed his England spot. Playing games and playing well is more important to Capello than playing for a 'big' club.

Now Tottenham are a side on a par with ourselves. I am not talking about club size etc... like most idiots do.

The difference between the 2 sides in terms of quality is very little.

Bentley thought otherwise and at the moment he is being shown that he was wrong. Tottenham have made a poor start to the season and Bentley is suffering.

I am sure spurs will pick up and hit the top half but this is a timely reminder to Bentley that the grass isn't always greener.

Don't moan David, it was your choice.

I know it is early days but Bentley will find it tough at Tottenham with so many big names over there. He can't moan when things don't go his way... because they won't all the time. Oh and calm down Spurs fans... its just a quick jest.

Good serves him right, went their to get in the England team and won't shows everyone he should have stayed here. I suspect he lead a life back into gambling again moving into London like earlier in his career.

Dunno mate... we always use to stick up for Bents but he has shown over the last 6 months that his arrogance and selfishness is astonishing. Its a shame as he is a good player.

I am so glad he didn't come to Villa. Last thing a club needs is a selfish player.

Like you say Mr Mikey, it is early days but so far it is a bit of "I told you do" isn't it! What was I saying before he left "the grass isn't always greener!"

I see some irony here... didn't he make a bold decision to leave Arsenal for Blackburn? Then, the grass was found to be greener.. You can't always make the right one but you at least sometimes have to make a decision.. I think you guys shouldn't berate him, he was a star for BR. I will back both Keane and Berbatov, even though we are weaker for them leaving.

Fedz - he left Arsenal to play for us because he knew he needed games. He left us for Spurs because he thought he had "outgrew us" and was "too good" for us... We all said that Bents didnt realise what he was leaving behind, and so far we have been right.
