David Bentley’s massive ego has once again reared it’s ugly head.

Bentley, a player who was held in high regard at the North London giants, left Arsenal after believing he should be playing first team football ahead of the likes of Pires, Bergkamp & Ljungberg who, let’s face it, in 2004 were the cream of the crop.

The next episode of ‘ego’ occurred when Bentley hung his England Under 21’s team mates out to dry after pulling out of the squad with fatigue. Ironically the team went on to play in one of the most brutal, physical and tiring games I’ve ever witnessed.

After finding a good home at Blackburn, Bentley the decided he wanted to leave to play Champions League football. Of course nobody in a CL spot was forthcoming so he plumed for the ‘next best thing’.

Now the Spurs player’s ego has grown so much he actually thinks the Arsenal fans are going to pay their ticket money just to come and abuse him rather than watch the football.

‘I can’t wait,’ said Bentley when asked about playing in a NLD. ‘I’ve not been sleeping at the moment thinking about running out there. I’ve always wanted to play in a North London derby, it will be brilliant.’

‘Hopefully they want to see characters. They don’t always go just to watch the football, they’ll come to abuse me. I’ll get the banter but I’ll enjoy that. It’s probably going to be the best moment in my career.”

My advice when he comes to The Grove? Ignore him, it’ll mess with his massive head far more than any song ever could.
