Tottenham Hotspur: A Song For Benty


Looking around on You Tube, I heard a Charlton chant, 'Darren Bent, Bent, Bent' as in... Ian Wr*ght, Wr*ght, Wr*ght...

Surely we can come up with something less.... less reminiscent of
him and more about Bent and US!

Areas of obvious inspiration include the West Ham snub, although that will sound flat when we're playing anyone else...

Come On You ......LOT

Give us a chant...


Bonus footage - Just found this... Is it real?????
Cheers,
HH

Ahhhhh anonymous 1:59 another unhappy Arsenal Fan. I just love it, they lose Henry coz he can see where Arsenal are headed and we sign Bent because he can see where we are headed.

Moe Arsenal Fans comments please, I just love those sick as a parrot posts.

(To the tune of "Stuck in the Middle with you")

Well I don't know why the Hammers thought he'd signed,
At Upton Park there was nothing that shined,
So he joined the Yids further up the road,
Because winning was his ultimate goal,
Berba to the left of him,
Keano to the right,
Here he is,
Darren Bent, Spurs through and through.

To the tune of the The Arctic Monkeys - "When the sun goes down":

I said, who's that over there?
To me its no surprise
that he HAD to join the yids
He don't need major credit cards
I doubt he checks receipts
He's all quite legitimate!

And what a proper man
Just give him half a chance
I bet he'll score one, yes he can
Can see it in his eyes, yeah
That he's got a speeding ban
To unlock and trouble defenders

(Chorus)
WE paid big change for him to mow you down
North of the river going out of town
WE paid big change for him to mow you down

Another one from me (I wrote the "Stuck in the Middle" effort).

(To the tune of Inspiral Carpet's "This is how it feels to be lonely", Bent is implied rather than mentioned)

So this is how it feels to be West Ham,
This is how it feels to be small,
This is how it feels when players won't sign for you at all.

Lovin the Amy Winehouse one so lets hope it takes off. Can see that getting a laugh from other teams as well.

I saw this suggestion on another site for Ledley and loved it but don't think it's been used at the Lane. It was suggested we find him his own song as the Judas scum one is getting a bit tired now. The thought was the national anthem simply changed to "God Save our Ledley King, long live our Ledley King" etc etc

Well a song for benty has unearthed some genuine talent out there, and perhaps some not quite so gifted. In our search for instant fame and stardom we seem to have overlooked a far more serious issue.
I am not referring to latest transfer gossip, ground relocation or the possibility of a new burger van.

No, the matter of a far more grave nature i refer to is the whereabouts of knowfuckall. According to my calculations the "fat lady" has been singing for nigh on a fortnight now and sofea jane and her pussy are also a matter of great concern.

Harry do you think you could arrange for his fat lady to sing some of the wonderful "songs for benty" in a eurovision style song contest with you as our very own terry wogan?

I’m not really one for these wild rumours – my mates, uncle’s, friends, son said he say player x at Old Trafford today etc BUT I have been informed by a friend that Manchester United have booked Berbatov in for a medical at BUPA in Salford Quays for some time in the next week. If this is true then he could be on his way to OT.

So, Kaboul is in the bag.
I for one would really like to know who the hell is Sofea Jane. I distinctively recall her writing here a month ago that Spurs would buy two players: one for 16 million, the other for 8 million. Well, Bent and Kaboul.
So, where's your final comment on Berbatov? Word is out Tevez is going to ManU. What happened to Berba's deal? Is it off? Why?Or is he going and the medical is already booked?
Com'on, lady. We're waiting.

Anonymous said...

So Mr Hotspur's 3rd 'done deal' signing turns up at the Lane. Where the fcuk are all those dippy Harry slaggers now then? Sulking over the loss of their prissy little dancing peacock to barca no doubt.

chelski can piss off with their attempts to de-stablize Chimbonda as well.

Genius left back, france under 21 captain and a top drawer premiership goalscorer all in then. Just a quality midfielder or two and we're more than ready for a proper assault on the top 4 or even better if the midfield gets good enough.

Five and a half weeks and counting.

why do people constantly talk about this? ManUre have already bought another striker in Nani and are apparantly (with actual news story backing this, not random hearsay) close to signing Tevez. They need another striker why?

The story comes from someone who works at the admnistrative offices of BUPA, not from any hospital. That's where the medicals are booked. And not all the medicals are done at the same place, by the way.
This doesn't mean that the BUPA clerk is telling the truth. Perhaps he's just having a laugh. A private one and quite stupid, if the event doesn't happen. How will that guy look like to his mates and other staff there if he's telling he booked something he didn't?
I say keep an eye on this. Unless Tevez signs.

I can confirm that under the new system supporters will not be able to purchase an exact seat within a block when purchasing tickets on line. I appreciate that some will see this as a potentially negative change to the process but it is an alteration made with good reason.

On our old system, where people were allowed to go in and select specific seats we were almost always left with a large number of single seats to sell before a match was completely sold out. Quite understandably, supporters would not necessarily think to make sure that they did not leave odd seats on their own when they were making their booking. However, it did leave us with issues where people would not bring children because they would obviously not want them to sit alone. All in all it was proving to be a poor experience for supporters who only managed to purchase a ticket towards the end of a sale.

Additionally, it is clear that the ability to select specific seats was lengthening the purchase time on the Web while supporters 'shopped' around for the seats they preferred. This situation undoubtedly contributed to some of the system issues that were experienced in the past in terms of speed and robustness.

The new Ticketmaster system that we now have in place is the same as that used at many of other Premier League clubs and our process in regard to this specific point is now consistent with them. Just to clarify, some supporters who have contacted us have suggested that seats are allocated randomly to them. This is not the case. The seats that are allocated to people booking via the Web are those that are deemed 'best available' at the time they are making their booking. Best Available is defined by the Ticket Office as being back row first and then moving forward in the lower tiers, and front row then moving backwards in the upper tiers. The best seat in a row is always the seat nearest the centre of the pitch.

Obviously, in the event that a supporter does have a need or a desire to have a particular seat they are able to call to book, and in the event that the seat(s) that they want are available they will be able to book them, or as near to it without leaving single seats unsold.

I hope this clarifies this issue. I am sure that supporters will get used to the change as the season progresses.

HELLO.

Your online booking system doesnt seem to be working. I cant select the seat I want to sit at. And I certainly dont want to end up sat next to that bloke at the paxton end with the rattle.

I assume this isnt in preparation for some sort of scheme to make fans pay more for the privilege of sitting somewhere where they can actually get a decent view of the pitch? Although I am in a particularly highly paid job, and can easily afford it, I refuse to be bent over and taken up the arse when I have already paid up my members fee.

just replied to their mail :


and presumably the tickets we have been 'allocated' will be displayed BEFORE we have to enter payment details? Or do we pay 60quid and hope for the best? how about a lucky dip system, or maybe a raffle?

I dont understand why you are making it hard for the 35950+ fans each game who are happy with the system to make it easier for what must be the (very) small minority who leave it late and are surprised the best seats are gone and so cant sit holding hands.

would it not have been easier to code the booking system to not allow the booking off of seats such that would leave the odd individual seats in between. The Odeon website manages to do this quite comfortably, if their popcorn addled brains can figure out how to do it then cant be hard, surely?

I can see another 'member tier scheme' brewing to squeeze an extra few quid for us mugs, that allows choosing of seats......

Gotta love Defoe for coming out and giving his commitment to fight for his place...thats the attitude we want to see from every player.

Hopefully now our fantastic 4 strikers will stay together, and my mouth is already watering at the prospect of these 4 top quality players being unleashed.

Part of me was actually worried thanks to knowfuckall and Sofea Jane, but their so called "inside knowledge" tells us now that they're bigger muppets than Uncle Bulgaria from the Wombles himself.

With Kaboul in the bag too, one more top playmaking midfielder or winger would do for me now, preferably Wes Schneider, but then that may be just too good to be true, as things have not been this smooth at Spurs in 20 years...COYS!

Man U conduct medicals at Carrington, not BUPA or any other hospitals.

Your mate is winding you up.

Kaboul signs. HH right again. Why doubt the great one any longer. Who next KAKA, Riquelme, Tezez, Crouch. We need a plymaker in the midfield, but who will come to the lane HH? Drenthe, yes ok give him a chance, let him settle. I wonder if Adel is going to be the answer and we are looking but nothing is there. Its a theory which is becoming obvious as pre season starts and Robbie returns from Costa del Sol. Does anyone know where big gay Sol is playing next season. I would like to us play the barca system with Lennon and Keane as wide attackers.

Berba is staying. Im his wife and lover. We love the Tottenham area and feel at home around Lord Ship. Its such a hot bed of cultures, including the delights of Eastern Europe. Berba feels a little lost with the boys and would appreciate less gangsters. Maybe some nice Eastern lads would cheer the place up

Sorry guys its true. My great aunt, Freda payne was indeed in doctor Singe Majeep`s surgery in Salford earlier where she confirmed berbs was seen next in the queue despite his best efforts to hide behind the may 1977 edition of peoples friend.
Some consolation, jens lemon was there having 2 giant chips on his shoulder removed, arsene whinger was having eyesight tested and adebeyor was getting treatment for genital warts.

Peter "Lemon Sucker" Kenyon has just said that Chelsea have had no contact with Spurs about Chimbonda and aren't interested in the player.
