Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
Everyone has made a fair point,but Darren BENT is a risk whereas Henry is a bit like buying an older model Mercedes, you know you are still buying quality and know what to expect. What is Bents pedigree? It was easy for him to be the big fish in a struggling team, but put alongside Robbie Keane? No comparison. Hope im wrong but I would have prefered a more seasoned prem or la liga player with more than one season behind him.
henry is not proven in la liga. bent is proven. sorry mate but i have to disagree about not knowing what bent can do in the prem. hes been here two years.
Henrys age WAS a factor in the 16 mil figure cos hes got a shorter shelf life than a 25mil player in their early twenties.
i always remember THenry not turning up for the big games.
have faith in our board my friend. theyve done alright

Im worried to say the least!
Bent is a good player with some skill. BUT 17m COME ON! If spurs are willing to sign him at anywhere near that price I reckon a big player is on his way out already. Most likely defoe. I rate defoe more than Bent based on what ive seen of the two.
I would only pay 10million max for bent as i dont think we will get much more for defoe. Im shocked that we would pay so much for a player such as bent. Something else is on the cards in opinion.
I just hope its not Berbatov to Man u!
Why are English players so overpriced!?
Not worth buying if over 8mil, had a great first season in the prem, but looks dead average now. Just another Kevin Phillips in my opinion. We'd do better to keep Defoe who spent half the season on the bench but still got 17 goals for us and he seems pretty content challenging for a place in the team.
you forget he scores more than mido. he's worth around 8-9 mil. worth having but only if mido goes and defoe stays.
those 4 no so bad. keane,berb,defoe,bent (bent on minimum wage)
maybe royston drenthe on the left as well.
howaa bout that
It certainly is a worry.
Okay, Defoe may not sign a contract extension in which case we really need to sell him this summer and get a replacement in but Bent at £17m - that's just silly.
Far better ways to spend our cash and better strikers out there for less money. Let's all prey Defoe signs an extension in the next few minutes.
The signs are ominous. Bent has apparently turned down West Ham. He wants to sign for us. It's game over:
Most our kitty gone with problem spots yet to be filled
Defoe will leave for half what we pay for Bent (and he's better)
The wonderful partnership between Berbatov & Keane will be destroyed
I agree, i would easily keep defo as the strike force have built a relatioship over the past year. With another injury to King we need to get in another central defender and someone on the left.
