I really do hope I’m forced to make a grumbling apology but right now I just do not understand the signing of Marcus Bent.

Thankfully, he has come in as a squad player, back up for the likes Kevin Doyle, Steven Fletcher and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and it’s only a loan spell and he’ll be gone by the second week of January, but why?

‘Marcus is an experienced striker who has played plenty of Premier League football and scored goals,’ said Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey to the Sunday Mercury.

‘People still talk about whether we’ve got enough Premier League experience, and Marcus will add to that.

OK experience yes and I’d be a bit of a hypocrite after moaning that we needed more of it for the past 15 months if I didn’t accept that. But goals??

He didn’t score a single one last year during loan spells with Middlesbrough or QPR. 10 games in the Championship with no return.

The season before that only brought 3 goals in 30 odd Championship appearances for Birmingham and his last Premier League goal came in 2007 for Wigan!!

Jez continued: ‘He’s also a different type of striker to what we have in that he’s a physical presence.

‘We needed someone after the departure of Andy Keogh and Marcus can do a job for us.’

So why let Andy Keogh go out on loan at all??
