Bentley's Ego Strikes Again

Bentley's Ego Strikes Again

David Bentley's massive ego has once again reared it's ugly head.

Bentley, a player who was held in high regard at the North London giants, left Arsenal after believing he should be playing first team football ahead of the likes of Pires, Bergkamp & Ljungberg who, let's face it, in 2004 were the cream of the crop.

The next episode of 'ego' occurred when Bentley hung his England Under 21's team mates out to dry after pulling out of the squad with fatigue. Ironically the team went on to play in one of the most brutal, physical and tiring games I've ever witnessed.

After finding a good home at Blackburn, Bentley the decided he wanted to leave to play Champions League football. Of course nobody in a CL spot was forthcoming so he plumed for the 'next best thing'.

Now the Spurs player's ego has grown so much he actually thinks the Arsenal fans are going to pay their ticket money just to come and abuse him rather than watch the football.

'I can't wait,' said Bentley when asked about playing in a NLD. 'I've not been sleeping at the moment thinking about running out there. I've always wanted to play in a North London derby, it will be brilliant.'

'Hopefully they want to see characters. They don't always go just to watch the football, they'll come to abuse me. I'll get the banter but I'll enjoy that. It's probably going to be the best moment in my career."

My advice when he comes to The Grove? Ignore him, it'll mess with his massive head far more than any song ever could.

What an idiot. Does he really think he'll get CL football with Spurs?

He just can't get over the fact that he wasn't good enough to play regularly here at the time. It must be painful for him to see how the current crop of young Arsenal players are getting the chance to shine, and in his time here only Ashley Cnut grabbed the opportunity to establish himself. Most of his behaviour and statements are a product of this long-term frustration. And with Modric, Dos Santos, Lennon, Jenas, etc. in the sp*rs midfield, he's in no way guaranteed to play in the first 11.

There is a strong section of the spuds fans that will give him more than enough grief about his Arsenal roots if he falls below standard. Those are the fans he will get most abuse from.

Who said he has no talent? I can't see that quote anywhere .... just that his head has reached melonous proportions. If it weren't for the size of his gob none of the Arsenal fans would give a sh** that he joined Spurs. He never achieved anything with Arsenal so he's not really that important to us.

A footballer with a massive ego and inflated sense of his own importance? I don't believe it.

just like Bent has lived up to his price tag. Still, he's "on the up" scoring at will against Orient and Norwich. Bentley is a talented player, but so are Pennant, Sidwell, Harper, Aliadiere, Lupoli...
