Darren Bent: Premiership's top scorer - 7 goals and 1 in the league cup. An amazing start, an amazing signing. Surely the player to get us into Europe. Yes this is all true, but what we want to know is will Sven start him this Saturday against Austria. Rooney is out as he is suspended and Owen will certainly start, but who will partnet him. In theory if Sven looked at his strikers form's recently, Bent comes top by miles, Defoe next and then Crouch. But why is Crouch even there? He has not scored a goal this season and the only good thing about him is his height. Defoe has scored a couple but Bent is on fire at the moment. I'm sure if he does play, he will score. But I very much doubt he will from the start! I mean he plays for Charlton, yes that little club who is 2nd in the league, no one ever starts for England when they play for Charlton, do they!? This is getting ridiculous now, as we have produced many great England players in Parker, Young and Powell. It is now Bent's time to shine and score the goals that will take us to Germany next summer! So Sven, play Bent and lets get England into the World Cup, forget Gerrards ramblings that Crouch is amazing and put the young lad from South London in the starting line up.
