Curbs taunts Bent

With West Ham's recent injury crisis the England substitute would almost certainly have been playing week-in and week-out instead of languishing on Spurs' bench watching Keane, Berbatov and former Hammer Jermaine Defoe fire them to 14th in the Premiership.

Bent rejected the chance to come to Upton Park in a £16.5m deal but may now be wondering if he made the right move.

Curbs said, ""In an ideal world you want four top strikers which is what Spurs have.

"Darren wanted to go to Spurs, he felt that was the right move for him, but he would have played regularly if he had come to West Ham.

"He is not used to missing out. He played every game at
Ipswich and Charlton."
