I think you need to keep perspective.
Look at the number of chances Defoe had and how many he scored - 6 attempts, 1 goal.
Look at Keane at Liverpool - couldn't hit a barn door from 6yds out on multiple occassions.
Does that make them bad strikers?
Bent scores - but for me, Defoe / Bent play the same game on the shoulder of the last defender. I personally think that both are <20 goals a season strikers. Pav - I hold comment on - far too early to tell.
Yes Defoe did have other chances in the game but they were all significantly more difficult than that joke that Bent pulled.
When Bentley does actually manage to produce a beautifully weighted pinpoint cross like that you have to make the most of it, Zokora could have done better than that let alone 'Arry's Mrs!
Any bids for Bent, come on, I'll start at £5m.....anyone?....anybody?....alright - 4. Anyone?.......No?

It isn't just that he missed the sitter, though my cat could have converted that chance. Bent's general play is hopeless. He jumps for the ball and nearly always misses it or when he makes contact it isn't directed to anyone. And he hasn't got the pace or anticipation to latch on to the half chances.
Five million? I wouldn't give you five bob without asking for change.
