Lambert’s decision now seems justified considering that Benteke went on to score 19 Premier League goals and help Villa to survive the drop.Benteke’s form kept Bent in the shadows for much of the season.Wholesale soccer jerseys
The striker either found himself warming the bench, or even worse not even in the Villa squad at one point. Lambert claimed he had no problem with Bent, but still decided to leave him out.I just wonder what Bent and Benteke could have done as a partnership, even though I know the idea of two strikers is now outdated, it seemed like it could have been a good combination.
Obviously, I did not see every Villa game last season, but whenever I saw Bent appear for the Villans, he seemed like a man that was lacking confidence, a trait that Bent never displayed at previous clubs.

According to the Daily Mail, Fulham and Newcastle are set to do battle over the England international. If the Mail’s believed value of ￡5million is true then whoever gets Bent will have a bargain.”
