Well what a lying odious fucking piece a shit he turned out to be.
A fucking badge kissing bellend. No wonder the Spurs fans turned on him so much. We now know why.

We fucking played the mags with 10 men. He already had his letter to sir prepared. When we equalised late on he wasn't interested.Fucking shameful. Shameful. £50,000 a week he was getting and he wasn't interested in us equalising v Newcastle. Dummy out the minute we signed Gyan it would appear.

He may need a Lee Clark-style "thigh strain" when Villa play up here next - who knows it could be as early as next season should Villa manage to stay up.

The stick he will get will be immense. And it will be deserved. I will boo the wanker like fuck. I've never done it for anyone but I fucking well will next time that bastard arrives in town with his slightly effiminate voice.
He may need his mam.

He has shafted us and left us completely in the lurch. It could ruin our season, though I doubt it as Brucey is a wise old wheeler and dealer.

I only hope that Villa don't go to trading standards when they realise they are committed to £24 million for a player who often cannot actually strike a ball cleanly and has the first touch of a virgin.

Yes, a top class goalscorer but not a class act in any other way.

Oh and I know you'll read this at some point Darren. You probably have your own name in every search engine of every website on the internet.
I hope it doesn't hurt your apparently tender feelings.

I guess £80K a week will ease the hurt. It will buy a few new Xbox games for you to fuck about on while the fans that idolised you go to work.
Spot on, tremendous post... rightfully livid as we should be
 
Footballer leaves one club for another !! Well I'm outraged.

Seriously lads we're bigger than this aren't we ? When this all plays out we'll be giggling like fuck I suspect

Toosb this is real bad news, I agree with you 100%, well done Benty for bringing the board together like never before.

Spoken from the heart son (an organ that Bent is lacking). Well done.

I haven't said a word about Bent since I first heard about it. I thought it better to wait and see. And I thought about it. But after that press conference, I agree with every f**king word Toosb says.

Bent has every right to leave, but his sense of timing is terrible. And I think he's lying. I'm not vindictive at all, but I hope his bollocks drop off.

Possibly the best post I have ever read on SMB that sums up a single event.

Perfectly encapsulated, Toosb.

Definitely Gold.

I just feel terribly, terribly sad about the whole affair. As for the "reasonable" posters who have put forth valid arguments for positivity - maybe I will get to that pont in a few weeks time. I suppose I am being OTT but it feels just like mourning.

Fuck you, DB.

I think the thing that disappoints me most about the whole thing is the feeling of being completely conned.

At a time when football looked to be about to implode because of all the greedy bastards, all the money, all the fucking agents and all the corrupt bastards running the game - Bent came along with the attitude that he wanted to play games, score goals, be worshipped and become a legend. Or so we thought...

It turns out that Bent is no different to the rest of them - its all about the money...

He could've stayed here for a long time. He had a very good chance of going down as an all-time great IMHO. He always gave the impression he cared, that he loved it here, that he wanted exactly what the fans did - and his goal record speaks for itself.

Instead, he's chosen to up his wage and to go to a club who are in a relegation fight, get fewer fans through the gates and basically look like a much worse prospect than, not just us, but a few other clubs aswell. I expect he'll come out with the same shit to the Villa fans. I also expect he wont be there for more than 2 seasons. There'll be another cheque to collect somewhere...

I thought he was a person who valued the legacy he'd leave at a club. I thought he was bothered about being remembered by fans as a great player, who loved the club. I honestly thought he wanted to be mentioned alongside Phillips when people debated the great players we've had. He's going to be remembered here for being a mercenary . He's abandonded us, after we've given him immense support - at a time when he was unhappy aswell - we took a punt on him being able to put behind the mismanagement from Redknapp IMO. Fuck him. Ungrateful, greedy bastard.

When we next play Villa I'll be booing just like I'd boo Lee Clark or someone like that - thats if he's still there of course, someone might offer him a few more quid a week and he'll be off. A move to QPR for "footballing reasons" could be on the cards. :roll:

Not very passionate either. You've only got see how many Villa turn up at the SoL and how many SAFC fans make the return journey (in addition to home attendances) to to see who cares more about their club. When I here him spouting off about "football reasons" I want to say to some shitty hack who doesn't want to upset the apple cart too much, "ask what these footballing reason's are you think cunt"

Loved the bloke, seemed genuine.
Thought he loved the club & that he really did want to become a legend here. Let's be honest he wasn't far away from it.


How wrong can you be though!?
I couldn't give a shit what he does in his career now. Although I hope the extra cash makes him happy! It's obviously what he values most.


As for SAFC we'll move on and be bigger & better without the twat. Trust in Bruce, Quinny & Ellis.
We're a club going in the right direction & we're doing it the right way.


Keep the faith.

. He's a footballer who has left to get more money, something we would all do, even if we loved our job, and were offered twice as much elsewhere.
Were acting like our lass has been telling us she loves us but then fucked off with the ugly twat down the road. It's not that fkn bad!
Gyan and welbeck have been the best partnershipthis season.
Get a grip ffs

true but then we dont earn 50k a week do we for pissing about a few hours per day and 90 mins on a weekend do we

Two fantastic posts by Toosb and Legend.

In my 30 odd years of following SAFC, I've never felt so cheated by an individual. He conned us from Day one and I hate the bastard for it. He lapped up the plaudits, he had Steve Bruce practically pleading to England to take him to the world cup, all Sunderland fans were right behind him. But No Darren, that wasn't good enough was it. It was money you wanted.

As for the shite about lack of service, can you tell me how you scored 25 last season and 8 this season, not to mention the sitters you've missed? I'll tell you what your 'lack of service' statement was, a smokescreen of pure bullshit.

I must congratulate you though, because all the shite you've spouted will no doubt greatly motivate your ex team mates, and I hope Titus hits you so hard in the first minute, you'll be sitting next to Quinny.

Fuck off you greedy con merchant, you will NEVER be forgiven by the supporters of SAFC.

Excellent post -- great one from Legend as well. I especially liked the Titus bit.

Reminds me of when an ex of mine suddenly announced to me that she wanted to break up, wanted to be alone for a long time, and then shacked up with a mate of mine. Worst part was, she was with him for the next three years or something. To that point, let's hope Bent doesn't go on to be a Villa legend. :-(

Sums up my feelings too, still absolutely fucking fuming.

Wasn't overly fussed until i saw the spineless cunt's shambles of a press conference and the limp wristed deflections that were his answers.
 
Great post. As others have said, its not the fact that he has moved on that has pissed me off so much, players move on all the time. It's the fact that time after time he stated that he loved the club, he loved the fans, he loved the area and he really wanted to leave a lasting legacy. It seemed that his time at Spurs had shown him the bad side of football, and that he was happy just to be at a club with ambition that loved him and saw him as a major part of their plans, and its not as if we were paying him minimum wage either, he was on a shit load of money to do a job he apparently loved for a team he claimed to care about.

It was not so long ago that he was asked via "twitter" whether he was leaving SAFC when a rumour started and he replied with "no, never". Now we see that all his words and all his actions were nothing more than a charade. He cares so much about the club that he is prepared to tell the manager before a derby match that he wants to leave, and already has his letter prepared to hand in as soon as the match finishes. He loves the club so much and appreciates SAFC taking him from Spurs so much that he stays for less than half his contract before fucking off. He goes to a press conference and goes on about "as soon as I knew Villa wanted me I knew I wanted to go", without even mentioning the bullshit he had previously spouted about being happy to stay at Sunderland and leave a legacy.

He has let the club down, he has let the fans down, and he has let Quinn and Bruce down when all of the above had shown so much faith in him. He seems to think that this will blow over but if thats what he thinks, he is going to be in for a major surprise. We can take players leaving, but what we won't stand for is being lied to from day one and made to look like twats.

He will see this thread, and he will see what people are tweeting about him- he might say he will stay away from it all but his curiosity will get the better of him. Even if he does stay off twitter for a few weeks, he will very quickly realise when he comes back on that our fans have not forgotten about the betrayal and, as Toosb mentioned, if he is worried about what he will face when he logs into his twitter account, the cunt will literally shit himself next time he comes to the Stadium of Light. He would seriously be well advised to be "injured" when Villa next play us, and if he plays he will deserve every bit of the abuse that will rain down upon him every time he touches the ball.

A man we genuinely thought was different from the rest has proved himself to be worse, at least other players don't pretend to give a fuck about their clubs. Fuck off Darren Bent, I wish you every misfortune for the rest of your career, you utter cunt
