The new verdict on Tottenham’s David Bentley

First off, we’ve found the real reason for Bentley’s penalty miss.

Secondly, the man has divided Spurs fans. Many think he’s completely crap, and many think good players don’t become bad overnight (and various other “class is permanent”-esque cliches) and he just needs time.

The truth, of course, is somewhere in between. From what we can see a good player can’t become bad overnight but he can become very ineffective if he’s in a system that doesn’t suit him. Sir Alex has moved class players like Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes all over the park to prolong their career but David Bentley isn’t near the overall class of those two.

So what’s your verdict? Sell in the summer or give DB more time?
