I must admit to being a little perplexed at the reason for the breakdown of Darren Bent’s transfer. I am also a little perplexed by Yossi Benayoun. He was clear that he was signing a new contract and yet now appears determined to move to Liverpool, whose insulting offer was rightly turned down. Apparently they only bid £3 million. Why on earth would they want to sign a player they value at that amount? It seems we will now haggle over a swap deal involving Craig Bellamy. As I have said before, I am not a fan. Sure, on his day he can be a brilliant player, but he is too inconsistent and has been disruptive at every club he has been at. If we do swap him for Yossi, we shouldn’t add more than £2 million to the deal.
I Remain Perplexed
