Darren Bent continued his impressive pre-season scoring record with three goals against Leyton Orient last night in another 5-1 victory. Aaron Lennon and Luka Modric were also on the score sheet.
Unless something major happens with us bringing in a couple of big name strikers in before the start of the season, it looks like Bent will be leading the front line coming off the back of some excellent displays.
Spurs have called a press conference for later today to unveil David Bentley. The fee is £15m rising to £17m depending on his performances. Arsenal are rumoured to be getting £7m of this.
A statement from Tottenham plc read: “Tottenham Hotspur plc is pleased to announce that agreement has been reached with Blackburn Rovers for the transfer of the registration of the England international midfielder, David Bentley, age 23 years, to Tottenham Hotspur FC for a total consideration of £15million and up to an additional £2million payable upon future performances.
“The player’s contract is for a period of up to six years.”
My bread and butter is a betting site Expert Betting Advice, just a friendly horse racing forum where people exchange tips and news. We also have a horse racing syndicate and and free to enter competitions.
I have set up a page with just Spurs Odds for the coming season. Covers pretty much anything and everything Tottenham related. I’ll be writing some previews before the season starts and before each game, be pleased to hear your thoughts.
That’s me for today, might be back later if we sign Arshavin or if anything interesting happens at the Bentley party!
