Rovers Star to Spurs…Surely not?

Rovers Star to Spurs…Surely not?

It is being rumoured that one of Blackburn Rovers' star performers, if not the star performer this season David Bentley is being chased by Tottenham Hotspur.

Vital Blackburn member rovers powerhouse posted this thread in the forum on Monday morning:

"I have not been on the site for a while but has anyone heard the rumour of spurs being after David Bentley?"

After doing some investigating I did come across something that was suggesting Tottenham manager Martin Jol could be planning such a £5 million move for him in January but this is pure speculation and I can't see this happening at all.

Spurs do seem to be linked with almost every player, especially up and coming English talent so the Bentley link will be no surprise, especially with the form he is in but I can't see this happening as he is settled at Rovers and has no need to move on.

Bentley's fantastic form this season, seeing him finally regularly reach the levels of performance it had always been known he could has constantly seen him earn praise from Mark Hughes, Rovers fans and all areas of the media.

True dazednconfuzed, maybe Spurs are a more glamorous club in a more glamarous area but why would he feel the need to leave. He can realise and achieve as much, if not more with us as he can with Spurs so why leave.

its funny that when any Blackburn player starts to play well then the other clubs that are in and around them in the league start to get linked with them. As Dazed... said, why would Bentley want to move to Spurs?? they dont and wont offer anything more than Blackburn will

Yeah I think we will offer him more than you can - a life back in his native London not some Northern slum plus if you ever think you are on a par with us you are all deluded

Not that I want him at Spurs because we should only sign players who would improve us and he wouldn't but i wonder what spurs coul offer....? Maybe the chance to play with 5 other mainstays of the england squad (Robinson, King, Jenas, Lennon and Hannibal), and another two who are going to definately be in an around it for years to come (Dawson and Huddlestone) and on top of that live in a better area and play for a club with a club who have a more realistic long term chance of success and a much slimmer chance of relegation!

How anyone can say Spurs could offer anything other than a "chance to live back in London" to Bentley I don't know. Spurs are a big club but you can only live off the big club tag for so long. What have Spurs achieved in the last 10-15 years? Not a lot. What are they likely to achieve in the next 10-15 years? Not a lot more than Rovers if everyone is honest!

Until Rovers become a "fashionable club" BringBack_LeGin they will have little or no chance of having players in the England Squad. Steve McLaren is unlikely to show up at Ewood Park is he as he already has his favourite players he'll always pick, this is no dig at the Spurs players in the squad as all (bar Jenas in my opinion) deserve to be there.

The thing that i can't believe is that Spud fans still get interested in this sort of rubbish - They are linked with every single player who has a half decent game once in a while, and then go and buy another average midfielder. Yet the fans still get excited and spout all this "big club" twaddle. Spurs are no better than the other similar lesser 'giants' (Villa, Leeds, City) and the sooner they get rid of the monstrous chip on their shoulders the better.

Agreed that Jenas shouldnt be there, not because he's not a good player but because there are better available (nolan, reo-coker, etc). The following of the clubs makes a difference to players minds as well, Blackburn have a pretty decent following but nothing like what Spurs have if we're honest.

And agrred with Head that VIlla are as big as spurs considering they have one the European cup and the league, and more recently than our last championship at that, but Man City? Leeds? They have not half the history or support we have. And I'm glad you didn't mention Newcastle because taht would have been laughable
