VMC Admin is not sure this is going to go down too well across Planet Blue. Rumours are rumbling around SportCity that Tottenham's unpredictable David Bentley is to join The Blues today...
Former Blackburn old boy and Hughes favourite, Bentley has had a torrid time of it at Tottenham Hotspur after signing a year ago for £15 million whereby he's made 2 starts for Harold Redknapp this year.
This situation culminated in the bad boy reputationed winger piling in his car drunk recently and getting banned for a year. He's been going off the rails for some time while his England career has nosedived.
Contrast his reputation with the popular Martin Petrov. Petrov has given us some memorable moments in sky blue and has yet to let Sparky down when called upon recently.
But, having been brought back carefully by City medical staff from a serious knee injury last season, Rigsby has lost some pace and certainly some of his reknowned sense of humour. Only recently he went to the sports hacks in Bulgaria bemoaning that if he doesn't get regular football this season he's off. Many of us were unimpressed by his comments considering the support City have given him.
There'll be plenty of Blues out there today who will be as concerned about Bentley's reputation as they were and, to an extent still are, over Craig Bellamy's signature.
Yet, Petrov is 30 years old and Bentley 25. After already bringing home SWP then signing Bridge, Taylor, Given, Lescott, Barry and indeed Bellamy, Sparky's intention to improve the squad's communication are very clear.
Good business or bad business? Give us a shout both here and in the VMC Forums...
- In another development, the woeful Tal Ben-Haim becomes the 28th player to leave City this year with a move which confirms the desperation at Portsmouth.
