benty avoids splinter injury
Clever idea that Darren Bent withdraws from the England squad
to spend time with his fellow Addicks at Sparrows Lane this week. Better that than risk getting another splinter in his arse from sitting on the bench in Amsterdam.
Meanwhile previous chief Sven-Goran Eriksson showed his complete ignorance of last season's top English goalscorer by even failing to mention him in his reasoning
for taking Theo Walcott to Germany."Where are the other good English forwards? I saw 100, 120 Premiership games every year and I couldn't find out."
Finally Sunday's News of the World
states that Iain Dowie would be interested in signing Palace old boy Julian Gray from Birmingham. Other papers predict that Marcus Bent might go the other way but with Gray out of favour at St Andrews and Marcus Bent being 1 of only 3 players who have scored in 15 Charlton games since August it makes you wonder who would get the best deal.
