Merson Tells Bentley Become a Comedian

Clock End

By Boris Mellor
January 20 2008

Paul Merson gave the best riposte to Bentley I have ever heard. I don’t know about you but I am sick and tired of reading the blokes whining. He has a regular first team place; he has an England cap, so why doesn’t he get over it? He asked to go, and got what he wanted.

In addition, I do not understand why some of the click tarts out there think we are interested in reading his whingeing so let Merson’s words be the last on this bigheaded moaner. Remember he is a Bentley, not a Rolls, otherwise Wenger would have kept him.


Merson’s Riposte

Asked by Sky Sports News what he thought of Bentley’s complaint that there were no laughs at Arsenal, and that he branded the atmosphere at Arsenal as "boring", Paul answered straight away that if Bentley wanted laughs he should become a comedian.

Blackburn Rovers David Bentley celebrates scoring the equalising goal from a free kick.

Laurel and Hardy

 Merson could not see a  lot of laughs in losing 4-1 at home to Coventry (nice one Paul). He argued that Arsenal have fun by winning games, and that at the end of matches they celebrate and have a laugh like no other team. That’s when Arsenal fool around, not in training.


Well said Paul.

Click Tarts: sites that put up rubbish articles so that they can get clicks for advertising revenue. The articles are usually transfer fantasy, or recycled $hyte from the press.

They are not Arsenal fans they use lurid headlines, that have little to do with the reality of the article eg Eduardo off to Brazil (when he retires in body of article).
They prostitute themselves for clicks.

Funny that none of the picked up on Merson, but there again they prefer anti Arsenal stories as it scares the punters into clicking on.

Not as catchy as @#$%& of Babylon, but then they didnt have internet then

Bentley is obsessed by Arsenal, he knows he made a mistake and will never play for as big a club again.

He knows Blackburn does not get him headlines so his only way is to use Arsenal any way he can

He is like the obsessed ex-girlfriend who thought you would fall apart without them and can not stand that you are now in a new relationship with a beauty and thriving on it while they have to do with some ordianry bloke

Has anyone ever seen an interview from Bentley where he has not brought up the subject of Arsenal

That's what Merson meant, but it put it very politely. He was very supportive of Arsenal

Self sustainable is a word that rich people with short arms and deep pockets use.
