Tottenham Hotspur £12.5 Million Bid For Bent




It ain't over 'til it's over...


Reports yesterday including mine (which came with a free white flag attached to it), suggested Benty had done the dirty on us and been lured into the clothes~peg selling clutches of Eggert & Co at West Ham.

Not the case.

Whilst my source stood by his word that Bent was a done deal, the rest of the Internet kinda pointed the opposite way, but last night and this morning ITK's with higher profiles such as Spurs Odyssey's Marc Spurs (quoted on Spurs Community and sites various) are now saying the Bent signing is indeed back on.

A figure of £12.5 million is mentioned as is a potentially convoluted 'players thrown in and loaned out' package which as per, I am immensely sceptical of.

Well, well, well...

My Hotspur - Where do you get your sources from? They are possible the worst ever!
I have to say though without you worklife would be dull.
If only we had signed all the players you keep touting.
Keep going Harry - Your a legend in the old b@llshit!
COYS

Saltyboy said...

HH, you are a legend mate. as you say in nicer words than mine. the other sites are pants. always get my hopes up for nothing. you said bent was a done deal a while ago so I am keeping faith in you. Just tell me why o why o why we did not go in for Tuncay sanli from fenerbache? he is one of the worlds current best left sided or striker I have seen this year. he is for Fener, what ronaldo is for man u, yet not a sniff? I am almost in depression about this as we are desperate for left sided balance....he is better than petrov and anyone else we have been mooted with.

anyways, I love spurs, I love HH cos he is a true yid.

Paxton, next season. give us a song!

Saltyboy said...

DB9, DB8 bring it on. i like it.

HH is always right with he's comments.....maybe its because he is a yid through and through????

can I ask....Why the feck did we not buy Tuncay Sanli from fenerbache? he is (on current form) one of the best left winger/strikers in the world. I have watched most games he has played and i cannot understand how we let him slip through? especially when we are so desperate to get some left balance....well I am. better than petrov and anyone else we are after. he is to fenerbache, what ronaldo is to man u.

gutted, but i could easily forget all this if the paxton give us a song next year. come on the yids

Harry Hotspur said...

I think you mistake the 'Who's This _______ Chap?' pieces which are designed to have a closer look at names being bandied around and....

...me actually passing on good info
in good faith.

Which I have done twice.

Once was Bale, which I told you months ago he would sign and he did.

The second was Bent and as of right now, he has still hasn't NOT signed for Spurs.

I trust that clears matters up for you.

And if I was being really picky...

If my sources are the worst ever, I'd have to say comparative to what?
The Daily Mirror? The Sun?
The bloke at your local Chip Shop?

Harry Roberts is my mate said...

HH - You should write for the Daily Sport. The local tramp gives me more accurate info than you!
As i said keep going though, you make my day tick by!
Are you friends with Mr Roberts by any chance??????

£10 for the pair my source reckons!

lokomotiv said...

Er, Kaboul Harry?
Don't get the whole Bent thing. Why so much money on a squad player? Makes me nervous that all is not well in the Berby department

Harry Hotspur said...

Ooops forgot about him.

Kaboul is done!

Promise.

doug said...

The idea of having Bent, Defoe, Keane and Berby is that you always have cover for both positions.

Mido was an idiot last season and blew the chance he had of making himself the second big man up front with his 'I couldn't hold up a dead chicken, let alone the ball' displays.

Bent would mean a fitter Berbatov for big games and important end of season clashes (like Chelsea & Seville, where he looked a little lead footed) and also be good cover if Berby was injured.

If Defoe doesn't want to stay and be a part of it, maybe Owen would be the answer. Hmmm, Berby & Owen... Hmmm.

Squeaky said...

I really do hope that Tottenham do not value Bent at 12.5m, surely there are better out there for that kind of money!!

archibaldsteve said...

I've being chewing over the idea of Bent signing for Spurs and I've warmed to the idea. His heading and ability to hold the ball will probably strengthen us as Defoe and Keane are not great in the air and not as strong. As long as we are going to bring in a left side operator too, then I welcome his addition to the side.

Harry Hotspur said...

I think if Bent can score 12 in a side that was effectively in free fall his potential at WHL HAS to be huge.

On me head son.

My only note of caution is that I do not repeat do not want to see Robinson using his presence on the park as a green light to wallop it skyward in his general direction at every given opportunity.

This will at best result in as many goals as Mido achieved and Berbatov being prescribed large quantities of Prozac.

4 Ever Hopeful said...

Bent would be a good addition but not at £12.5 million let alone the crazy money Wet Spam offered. £9 million is about right.

On Robbo, did anyone read Segers' comments on the club website about Cerny? If he is that bloody good why didn't they drop Robbo last season when he went through such a crap spell?

TorontoSpur said...

Will you lot chill out!
What does it matter if THFC pay 8-10-20 mill for the player...the fact is he can and will deliver the goods plus he wants to wear our colours that can only be a plus.Better to spend the dosh to get the best available or as seen before the competition will.
it sends a message to others that THFC are on the rise.Maybe then others will not be saying it is a dream of mine to play for the arse,man usa etc!better to pay more for someone who wants to play for The World Famous THFC then some prima donna import with selfish issues!
Lets give DB all the backing we can along with the rest of the team...no barracking our own leave that to the goons!

Good Heavens! Well done torontospur!

In fact novadays isn't too many players like Mabbur or Mat Le Tessier :). But if somewhere is someone like them I strongly hope this man to play for Spurs! So DB or other, who care?

It's all about Tottenham! It's all about lilywhite shirts! COYS! ;)

Harry Hotspur said...

Toronto Spur - Welcome.

My excitement over the probable Bent signing revolves around the points you make.

His 'at this stage' suspected willingness to wear the badge is fundamental.

If he signs, it will be a massive credit to him and Tottenham.

A marriage made in I don't know where but one with a honeymoon period that could well run and run...

Twelve and half to make you laugh.

It isn't small change, but who is REALISTICALLY out there and coming in at that money?

We got Berba, comparatively speaking, for loose change from down the back of the settee. The sooner that realisation is widespread the better...

Harry Hotspur said...

Oh yeah - Go on the Saltyboy!

Richard The Yido said...

i take it im the only Tottenham fan who is bothered that Darren Bent is gonna cost a huge chunk of our transfer money he supports the Gooners and he tried to wind us spurs fans up when Charlton were beating us 2-0 by signalling the score to our fans and then it got to 2-2 he was carried off injured and we laughed like mad i dont want Darren Bent at Tottenham Michael Owen costs £9million and is without a doubt better but we dont need a FORWARD WE NEED A LEFT WINGER AND WESLEY SNEIJDER!!!

Richard The Yido said...

Harry Hotspur i have nothing against you i havent slagged you off on here i probably never will i just wanna ask what is the chance in your honest opinion of spurs buying Roysten Drenthe & Wesley Sneijder the 2 players we actually need?

Vinny said...

We find ourselves as neither being beggars or choosers at this point.

Beggars meaning we should not have to sign crap anymore while not being able to quite choose the best of the best yet i.e. Torres, Villa, Huntelaar etc. Even though I would love to see the latter in our ranks, I admit that it doesn't mean he would necessarily want to join.

So Bent...is not a bad compromise as is he is Premiership proven, he has this over even that band of foreign elite players I mentioned so makes him less of a risk. He is a proven goal scorer, even for a poor side like Peckham Utd. Is able to head the ball well and hold play up fairly well too, therefore should be able to partner either JD or Keano in the event that Berba was injured, as well as Berba himself if Keano and JD are not cutting the mustard.

So could be a lot worse IMO, and if we didn't have the money for more players Im sure the management wouldn't be going for him in the first place ie they know we need a left sided player and maybe one or two more, so the budget must be there.

The only negative point if Bent comes in and does well, JD is well out in the cold and may leave, but hey all successful teams need competition or is it that the board can sense JD being non-committal to a new deal? Infact I suspect most of the people that will be heckling at this deal are JD faithful that fear their beloved will finally throw his toys out of his pram and leave. I have nothing against JD, infact think he is a great player. I just believe that competition is only a healthy thing. People worrying about having 4 top class forwards are wrong, because it’s like saying why would we need 3 top class central defenders? ie forwards can chop and changed when the chips are down, late substitutions when we need goals late in a game, more than central defence partnerships which are usually kept constant unless there is injury.

P.S. Mark Viduka would also have done as a decent 2 year back-up plan until the youngsters were ready, but who knows what his wage demands would have been?

Harry Hotspur said...

Richard - You're very polite, what are you doing on here?

Only kidding....

I have neither heard nor seen anything that leads me to believe we are even remotely close to either Drenthe or Sneijder.

Well, I have one source that says we've made an offer for Sneijder but I'm not running it properly as a piece simply because it's a real lone voice in the wilderness job. And frankly I need a bit more than that.

As you know, I ran pieces on both as with a number of players to reflect the thoughts of those who use this blog.

Sneijdr has been attributed with comments along the lines of he has 'enormous respect for Jol'. A move to WHL that alone doth not make.

If and I mean if, we as a club are to in anyway match the quantity of signings we made last year, then certainly there ought be more to come.

One consideration is the shedding of 'dead wood' from the wage bill and I would really want to see a people carrier with at least Mido and Murphy in it sometime soon outside the WS Car Park.

knowitall said...

I'ts the Football Weddings Big Weekend (Terry, Neville,Carrick and gerrard, congrats!)and I'm keeping you posted, Harry. No wedding for Berbo, not yet, it looks like the lady is German so it will happen in Germany. This looks stronger than a rumour,it's the talk of the town in Bulgaria, but I'm just selling it as I bought it. These days he's having a rest on the seaside, on the Black sea.And it's all for now, folks.
I'm very disappointed with your cooperation with Allwhite. Are you sure he is Bulgarian? Cause until now no translations were posted here of any of Berbo's big interviews...

Anonymous said...

The catch is Bent is coming and Berba is leaving. Soon to be known!

mikey said...

The close season is only a few weeks old and, with each passing day, I want to cry with all the endless speculation. Has it always been like this?!? I remember when Klinsmann signed, and I was on a family holiday in France. The campsite posted news updates on a notice board and my Dad told me about it and I was convinced he was winding me up! It came after no speculation, no build up, the club just went out and did it. Like they did with Berba last summer. Other than Chimbonda (and Bale to be fair - although not if he'd come in January as planned) our best signings seem to come without all this endless speculation. Does anyone know if I can hibernate until early August and wake up with Spurs having sold their deadwood, kept their best players, and signed Drenthe and Sneijder (and not Bent - 2 million more than Berba? Defoe got 18 goals last season - why not bring one of our youngsters up as cover and spend the money on someone we need?!?!?!). I'm so excited about the prospect of silverware and top 4 that I will cry when we don't do it (as I know we won't having supported the Glory for so long - disappointment seems to come with the territory...). Anyway, I hope it all works - we will be one of the few teams that have earned/deserve success - COYS

sean k said...

heres one for you harry . . can you find out wots going on with wayne routledge? is he staying? is he going? everywhere ive read it keeps mentioning him in part exchange deals . . i feel hes worth keeping and so does everyone in comments on message boards everywhere does everyone not remember how good he was in pre season when we won the peace cup. he is a better crosser than aaron lennon thats for sure any watch the u21s 5-0 win. and also id like to complain to he scored at wembley no mention in the spurs official mag wots tht about just a puff piece about huddlestone he is our player too!!! heres a poll or campaign you should KEEP WAYNE ROUTLEDGE!!!

sean k said...

Follow rumours that i hope are true that we sign

Curtis Davies (rather thn Kabuoul)
Royston Drenthe (now!!!)
Darren Bent (Mido its over!!)

I hope the news of the world is right!!!

Who is Biaise Matuidi??

sydney wale said...

He pulled away from the generous Hammers offer a bit sharpish. It doesn't appear that he is hanging out for extra money. Does that mean there is only one team in London he wants to join? If so, pay the money and get the lad on the firm.
10 million pounds for a proven premiership striker seems the going rate these days so something in that ball park looks like VFM. He will always get goals. We need to ship out Mido (part exchange please Charlton) and get Bent in the squad to keep the other 3 on their toes.

All this talk of unsettling Defoe is rubbish. Does he believe Spurs will only buy forwards worse that him so that he won't leave? If so, no loss. I think Defoe likes it at Spurs as does Keane and another quality signing amongst the forwards will be necessary to push on next year. If we carry on from last year with the same defensive problems, another goalscorer on the bench could prove to be wise. (Not Dennis)

Nemesis said...

You don't have to worry, Spurs fans. I can tell you right now Berbatov is not going to Manchester United. Why? Simply because he doesn't deserve it. He deserves to stay where he is and get what he deserves, which is to rot there. And I never told you no lies, right?I told you you would lose the UEFA CUP and you did.Indeed I told you it would be in Spain and it was. Nothing changed for the better, only for the worse. To be a champion you need a different stamina. So be it. Be all happy and content. Pity it's not going to be great fun. You'll get tired of him soon. I know.And he deserves it.
Have a nice life , Harry.

Anonymous said...

Dear Nemesis,

It seems to me you're a rather angry person.

Your post puzzles me on numerous fronts and so I have a few questions for you:
Why is it you think Berba deserves to rot? (never mind how it is you consider playing at Spurs rotting)

Why also do you think we'll tire of him. I am a Spurs fan but also a football fan - so even if he played for ManUSA I'd still consider him one of the finest proponents of the game of football.
I wrote a heartfelt - yes yes perhaps over emotional - piece on here once before when I was on the verge of getting/losing the perfect job - it was about how much sheer joy I derived from watching Barba's goals over and over and over..not just the goals, his first touch(and 2nd and 3rd..) his underrated strength his vision...in short his class!

Now I know the plaudits have come in thick and fast for him but that is expected for one as good as he is. All the rumours and speculation(and angst amongst Spurs fans) - natural for his talent.

What bemuses me is how loud-mouthed, smug-sounding knuckleheads (like yourself) make statements about Berba as if you have some special relation to him as if Spurs should be grateful for him(which we are but thats an other story). If heaven forbid Berba goes (and like you so crassly pointed out he won't) life at The Lane would suffer but for too long - THE TEAM are an upward spiral..THE TEAM are getting better and new heroes WILL be born...cue Adel Taraabt(to name one).

This is a Spurs site and I for one love the work that Harry does(not sucking up or anything Harry ah ah) but it irks me that posters arrive and are abusive and simply idiotic....phew call me a Spurs fascist if you will but sod off to your own club and make benign comments there.

The Mighty Tottenham from The Lane

Harry Hotspur said...

Nemesis you indeed are a bitter character.

Unsurprising really. You arrived with a bang! with tales that proved to be tall, Berba's bags were already packed and he was waiting for a taxi to the airport.

And now you leave (for the umpteenth time) with a wimper. You physic powers in tatters,...

"I can tell you right now Berbatov is not going to Manchester United"

Wow!

What's your next pronouncement? Rooney WON'T get his ears pinned back this season?

Anonymous said...

Oh, H, dear, you seem to be very forgotten these days. Please check who Nemesis is (wikipedia will do)and check your own blog, cause you're messing comments.
Nemesis appeared to show what was hidden.It's like the devil's advocate(check that too) with a vengeance. Things and people are not what they seem. But never mind about that. Why don't you ask Mido, Defoe and Lennon, for starters, how good your dear god truly is?
I've other business to attend, so take care. And relax. These gods come and go. The club stays.
Ciao, caro!

EL said...

And it's all gone quiet over there...

In the space of two tabloids we've gone from Jol being about to spend 60 mil to spending 24 mil. The latter figure having been described as "spending big". When taking the money from probable sales during this summer into account, surely this sum represents spending small. How much did we get for finishing 5th? How much for the Uefa semi? What was our profit last year does anyone have the figures?

If anyone knows what the overall spending on players was, taking into account sales, for the last couple of seasons, I'd love to know. People often talk about how big our spending is but in relation to what the club make in total what % is actually spent on talent and how does it compare with other clubs.

Probably too big a question for a blogsite but if anyone has the info or a lot of time on their hands, please feel free to edjucayte me.

Anonymous said...

It's a bit strange this silence about Berbs around here. Whenever someone came along and said he was leaving they were bitterly abused.But since Bent's contract is on the line things changed. Why was that? Maybe because the bosses can no longer hide it. We have to admit Knowitall knows a bit. Not Nemesis, I'm afraid, as I've never read a post of his saying Berbs was leaving. And where on earth is Sofae Jane, the girlfriend of the agent? Keep us posted, guys. It would br great if the big news was here first.

I'm not sure on exact figures but there was a table drawn up (at the close of the transfer window last summer) of premiership spending since Jose and the russian wallet moved in (so 3 seasons).

I think we were 4th highest spenders (possibly 3rd) at £60m/£61m

Re:11.20am
Please stop inviting goons & manks on here.

There's the suggestion in the press that bent's fishing for guarantees of first team football at either Spurs or liverpool. At Spurs he would presumably be our backup 'big' striker behind Berbatov. Hmmmmmmm..... I'd recommend he try liverpool.

Harry Hotspur said...

El,

I shall, as the good farmer said upon viewing his well..........

............look into it.

joe said...

He might be regarded as a backup at spurs, but where would Bent get at Liverpool? Kuyt and Bellamy are both better than him.. Crouch may well prove to be invaluable as he keeps improving. That would leave Bent 4th choice (even 5th if Benitez grew some balls and put Gerrard attacking centre mid), so Spurs would be a much better choice as he would likely be joint 3rd choice at least (depending on injury/defoe form)

Low income said...

I tink harry is pretty damm reliable for someone who does not work at spurs.harry do you make money from this site? Could you please do a list of celebrity Spurs fans. A list of top ten worst ever sigings, and worst ever premiership spurs team. Would it be Gerry Francis team, with Iversen, Fox, Wilson, Vega. God we have been so shit at times, it makes me laugh to think that Jose thinks we are outsiders and we have 5 England internationls, Dave Beckham of Bulgaria, Wales and Irelands best players, Eygpt's biggest star, and a heap of Euro future stars, also a Tony Soprano look a like manager and a chairman with a Cambridge degree. Things have never been better and still some gay yids think we should sack someone and start again. I suppose this is why I love the Spurs and dream about a left winger

My understanding is that Mido is currently sporting a square of cardboard baring the legend 'WILL WORK FOR FOOD', which frankly, is the issue.

Brum are supposed to be in for him and a fuller figured £4 million was being bandied around...

Hardly inside knowledge rather common sense driven to be honest.

The quantity of strikers doesn't really rattle me in terms of Berba being off.

They all know the drill. You score - you play - you stay... Should Defoe remain then he will show real ambition, real resilience and will finally crack (hopefully) a few more of his critics.

No one, no one talks about injuries.

We have one hell of a campaign staring us head on and I tell you now, if Berba gets a twist in the 23rd minute against Gutentag Zurich or whoever on a wet Tuesday and we've Man Utd away on the Sat Bent will look cheap as chips and Defoe will feel like (perverts get ready) an ace in the hole.

There are too many games ahead to be clucking at this stage about being 'overmanned'.

The crummier tabloids will run the dross exclusives that Keane or Defoe are off, but if Jol could buy 5 more top class strikers who would be agreeable to the bench he damn well would.

Personally I want him to concentrate on our defence, but hey...

Well, charlton's chief executive has been quoted saying that only West Ham have matched charlton's valuation of bent, and unless that valuation (17 mil) is matched by any other interested clubs, they will not be given permission to speak to him and bent will be playing in the championship next season.

Assuming he's a man of his word, I would hope that's the end of that. 6.1 more than Berbatov? Leave off!

and a bottle of rum ( maybe whiskey it's better!)
Go get the girl, Berby boy!

Harry, you should be proud of being the first to have this kind of hot news in the UK. It's not the news you want, but it's news. Good for the blog. Com'on, thank uncle and auntie Bulgaria!

There are estimates that around 41,000 Romanians and 15,000 Bulgarians will come to work in Britain in the first year after their countries join the European Union. This estimate is based on what happened after the last EU enlargement in 2004. Although Romania and Bulgaria are poorer than the countries that joined last time, most migrating Romanians and Bulgarians will want to go to Italy, Spain and Greece because they are closer and have higher numbers already resident.

It is argued that the Government should allow labour market access to Romanian and Bulgarian nationals to work in Britain when accession is expected in 2007 because:

New inflows are likely to be relatively small
the impacts on the UK labour market are likely to be positive
free access will have to be introduced eventually and a separate scheme would increase bureaucracy
those Romanians and Bulgarians already here would be able to regularise their status.

Well considering how quiet the Berbatov thing has got, I'll assume nothing is happening, Can't say i'll be happy if we replace Defoe with Bent though!

oh yes, how would they know, those Bulgarians about another Bulgarian who is staying in Bulgaria and has a Bulgarian agent who's in London and other Bulgarian friends in several countries? How would they know? Indeed!!!

The Bulgarian player who hasnt lived in Bulgaria for years, who plays in England.

Don't you think the English media would know of a meeting between Man USA and Spurs before the Bulgarian press?

Dear oh dear.

BBC website today lists 3 rumours about us..

- Mido is possibly set for transfer to Fulham (hooray!)

- We're closing in on Kaboul (done deal possibly?)

- Jol will listen to offers for Defoe when we sign Bent

the third is interesting as they're assuming we're definately getting Bent AND that we'd get rid of our 3rd best striker even tho we're apparantly getting rid of Mido as well. Not that I mind the latter, but if we sell Defoe I want another striker coming in.

In lighter news, Patrick Vieira apparantly reckons Henry and Wenger are both leaving goonland if they dont get top players in/lots more dosh to spend respectively. Should this happen we could be looking at a comfortable 4th finish.. maybe even 3rd!

The Gooners are in a bit of trouble aren't they.

Why don't you go and check what's going on at WHL?
The UK media still doesn't know a thing about Berbs.
Prepare to be surprised.
Idiot!

Just heard the news the deal is done and will be announced on Monday.
I don't get it. 17 million for a striker. Why do we need him? This guy is no mido. He'll be in the first team. So what happens to Defoe? Is Bent better than him? We need a left wing. Are they all insane back at the Lane? Levy and Comolli owe the fans a urgent explanation.

Calm down! How about Berbatov & bent taking turns AND a left winger AND a midfield playmaker AND another defender?
