Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
...should have checked first - he's .22 - ie 1 in 5. Maybe the last time I checked was when he was at Spurs (that's my excuse anyway!).
Daffy is .14 - ie 1 in 7.
Keane .24 - ie 1 in 4
Pav is .12 - ie 1 in 8
Crouch is also .12 - ie 1 in 8

As SB would point that, stats can be used to show anything and the fact that Bent scores doesn't make him a good player (makes him a bloody good buy if you ask me, if you're looking for someone with a record for scoring).
Personally, I didn't rate Bent's 'style' ( he looks 'clumsy' to me), but you can never say he's not a good striker. I'd rather have a Bent than a Heskey. But then I'd rather have a Berbatov than a Bent and a Keane than a Daffy and a Pav than a Crouch - but they're just personal preferences.
From recollection bent is about the same as Daffy - scores about 1 in 8 shots - if you want the stats look here http://soccernet.espn.go.com/team/squad?id=367&cc=5739 or here
and then go back and choose the team and season you're after.
Never disputed that Alan, as you have said yourself on here, he scores of his shin, ar$e, knee.
As I said he has pace, has the knack of being in the right place and he can score goals, and we all know that to be a successful at that you need a bit of luck now and then too.
Just never thought of him as a class act that's all.
They are very few and far between, if they're English born and bred.
Any idea how many assists Bent has made in his career?
Its still part of most attackers jobs to create goals.
Any idea how many goal scoring opportunities Bent had?
He's a good finisher, but I reckon he converts 1 in 5 of his chances.
Not sure anyone could argue that he's not a decent player, but he's obviously just a bit of a tool!
Alan H see if you can sort a deal for, Keano £7mil, its a deal.
Apparently we will get £6m from Sunderland. £3m sell on clause and supposedly £3m still owed!! So if we sell Keano to West Ham for £6m we've then got a bit of a kitty to go towards buying a "goal scoring" striker. AKA Suarez or, as rumours have it, Spurs have been watching Hulk.
Only need to put in another £10-12m.
Sure I'd rather either of them than Bent!!! Never liked him when he was here so definitely wouldn't want him back.
Yes he has pace and yes he does score goals but, IMHO, not half of what he should. NO he's not good enough for Spurs. Showed his "real class" when he played for England. None!
Don't forget my 5%, I put a lot of work into this one. Chelsea wanted to throw a player and cash in for him and Liverpool were arguing amongst themselves. But, I can't divuldge too much info because Harry's got me persuading someone else up here at the minute.
