[edit] Background

David Bentley is an English footballer who plays for Tottenham Hotspur. Bentley started his career with Arsenal, and despite being earmarked as one for the future, he saw his playing opportunities limited by a strong senior squad. Bentley produced strong performances for his new club, and soon featured regularly for the England national under-21 football team.

[edit] Strengths

Bentley is very good going forward and playing killer balls into your strikers. He usually scores 10+ a season and gets 20+ assists if played properly. He is also quite young, so his stats will get better as the game progresses. His natural fitness is very high, so he rarely gets injured. He need to be played in a AMR or MR position with a arrow going as up as possible to make sure his strengths are fully used.

[edit] Weaknesses

Heading and defending. As you can see in his stats, his heading is only seven, and his jumping is only ten, which means he won't work well with the Corner Tactic. His defending stats are very poor, but you can expect that from a right winger.

[edit] Player Instructions

These are the instructions that I tend to use for David. Also, make sure he's playmaker if you play as Blackburn, if you have bought him for another team, don't as it will be ineffective.


[edit] Conclusion

David is a great buy for any side in the game. Well, maybe not Real Madrid. But for £12m, you are getting one of the best right wingers in the game. Also, if you are playing as England, I recommend you use Bentley for the right wing as he is better then Shaun Wright-Phillips and any other right winger England have.
