Everything’s MASSIVE these days!

January 19, 2011

The zit on my forehead. The rash on my bum. Aston Villa. MASSIVE.

Darren Bent, Twitter-nymph and goal-scoring extraordinaire for any team besides Tottenham, has abruptly left the Stadium of Light for greener pastures under Houllier’s wing. Not only has he ditched Sunderland during a very positive campaign (currently 6th in the league), but he jumped ship to an ailing Aston Villa side which lies in a low 17th position. Granted, Villa definitely have enough class to pull themselves up through the table and Bent would be a welcome option at the front, especially after his goal-scoring form last season.

We’ve heard it all before from Benty. How each club is “massive” with “massive” support and “massive” appeal. For once, I’d like him to be honest and just state the reasons why he chooses to go where he goes.

Keeping in mind that this is a January transfer, Bent’s deal now makes him the most expensive English player ever. That’s… uh… err… massive.

Were we not clued in? Were the talents of Mr. Bent not utilized efficiently by Harry and the management team? Again I remind you that he is the “most expensive” English player to grace the Earth.

So Darren Bent’s excessive use of the term “massive” continues:

“Aston Villa is a massive football club”… heard that before from him.

“When I first went to Spurs, and it happened there (moving for a big transfer fee), I was so nervous… It did play a massive part in my mind and it probably got me down at times”… even the negatives are “massive” with this guy.

On a personal note, excuse the hiatus from the blogosphere… decided to take a bit of a break and just enjoy watching football again and not have to worry about coming up with stuff to write about. I’m back!

COYS!!!
