First Prem hat-trick vs Man Utd[edit]

This link (see Footnote) states that one of Egil Ostenstad's 'hat-trick' goals was later allocated to Denis Irwin. Therefore Bentley is the only scorer of a hat-trick vs Man Utd in the Premiership.  Sʟυмgυм • т  c  22:13, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

OR?[edit]

"He made his full international debut coming on as a substitute fo Shaun Wright-Phillips against Israel, where he was booed for a large part of the game (which most have agreed was in response to him pulling out of Englands Under-21s European Championships)."

Good spot; amazing amount of those edits in a matter of hours. It's really a matter of providing the source (and formatted too). Chensiyuan 08:23, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Gambling[edit]

Great that somebody found out what the personal problem was. I won't mind placing the content where it is now. Chensiyuan (talk) 14:38, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Player profile section.[edit]

I can't see how it adds to the article he was slated to play in the second striker role and was frequently compared to Dennis Bergkamp Then it just goes on about about his role at Blackburn which might as well be in the Blackburn section. Anyone else up for removing the section? Govvy (talk) 23:22, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Player profile sections are not peculiar, even in GAs and FAs. The section in this article needs expansion, not complete removal. Chensiyuan (talk) 00:40, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Should-be midfielder[edit]

The article reads

"He is known for his technique, composure and creativity on the ball and is often talked about as a should-be midfielder, but his ability to deliver from wide positions means he is often used out of position as a winger, despite lacking the pace of some of his Premier League counter-parts."

I have never heard the expression "should-be midfielder."

I looked it up on google search and there is nothing about a "should-be midfielder."

There appears to be no such thing as a "should-be midfielder" so I doubt anyone often talks about him as a "should-be midfielder" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.129.236.95 (talk) 09:34, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
