Was chatting to a few Arsenal fans in the week and the subject of Jenas came up. I asked how happy they would be to see him play for them and they were excited at the prospect.


They feel he is not yet the 'finished article' and that he has yet to work under a manager at club level who has the ability to bring out the best of him..


Sadly, on the second point, they may well have a point.....

Charlton Athletic striker Darren Bent has been called into the England squad for Wednesday's friendly with Denmark to replace the injured Andy Johnson.


Johnson, who scored in Crystal Palace's 1-1 draw with Norwich, played the full 90 minutes at Carrow Road, but collected a hamstring strain.


England coach Sven Goran Eriksson opted against calling up the likes of Manchester United's Alan Smith in favour of promoting from the Under-21 side.


Bent showed he is a man in form following his brace in Charlton's 3-1 win over Sunderland and got the nod ahead of the former Leeds United striker.


"I got a late call that he [Johnson] had a hamstring so we have Darren Bent from the Under-21 squad," said Eriksson.
