Eatery Attack news

Which Spurs star was punched in the face in a restaurant?

David Bentley forced to chow down on a knuckle sandwich

David Bentley

Despite having a very punchable face, Tottenham star David Bentley nearly made it 24 years without someone punching him in the face. This all changed over the weekend, however, when someone punched him in the face:

The Spurs midfielder, 24, had been enjoying a meal with Kimberly Mills [WAG link here] and another couple when a man walked up to their table after finishing his own dinner – and took a swing at him.

Stunned Bentley was left reeling in his chair as the attacker ran out of the restaurant.

According to Bentley’s agent Robert Segal, the attack at the swanky Nolita bar in Herts was premeditated, as the assailant had a taxi waiting outside for him.

The Daily Mirror fail to properly describe the attacker in their report, however an exclusive source has issued a description to The Spoiler. With brown hair and a medium build, the man is said to be a football manager in his sixties, who has been trying to sell a player called David Bentley ever since he started a job at a north London club.

If you have seen a man matching this description, do please get in touch.

    this is not funny

    so what if his girlfriend miscarried her baby as a consequence……..this article is appalling

    let get this absolutely clear
    cheap journalism

    obviously you are a complete prick…….and a coward

    Yeah billiospur, nothing shows cowardice quite like reporting something that happened in the news!

    Perhaps your reaction is a little OTT?

    groo grux …??
    my reaction ott not really…….its so obvious someone would post this shite
    ….the media has become a sick voice
    i worked for opticians and seen blindness caused by such stupidity as what happened to bentley etc let alone anything else
    saying someone deserves to be hit is incitement
    this type of media should be sued

    its not on …….period……

    Calm down billiospur! It may be light-hearted, but its just an account of someone getting hit in the face! Just because it was a stupid act doesn’t mesan it doesn’t deserve to get reported.

    Nowhere does it say he deserves to be hit and nowhere does it incite violence. It just says he’s quite punchable, which in all fairness, he is.

    Do you write to Points of View in your spare time? Is OFCOM on your speed dial? Chill out a little bit!

    I agree with Billiospur about this not being funny and so on. And thats comnig from an Arsenal supproter. Violence in any form is not funny.

    I don’t think that this article is really poking fun at anyone. But whoever thinks its clever and hard to punch someone and run away like a girl is a retard.

    gutter press

    Stop going on about this issue! Don’t blame the journo, blame the idiot who punched him.

    Yeah, poor Bentley. He could’ve been seriously injured. Punching someone, and violence in general, is ultimately irrelevant for the most part. So get mad the guy who punched him instead of the reporter who is just doing his job.

    calm down everyone, David Bentley getting a punch is funny. Full stop.

  • billiospur // July 14, 2009 at 1:39 am

    hey paul……i do have a sense of humour……
    all im saying is if bentley had been injured in a way which affected his career …..detached retina …then it would be a shame….some knob who had a taxi waiting ?………what pgyhan idiot?.so to lighten up.(sorry i have grown to dislike this type of reporting as many) ……… know the audacious shot from 40-50 yards at the emirates…….it went in!


  • George // July 14, 2009 at 10:48 am

    One “audacious shot” for one punch in the face.

    Can we encourage him to score another twenty like that at the same exchange rate?

  • peteyboi07 // July 16, 2009 at 2:47 pm

    Paul you sound like a complete nob. It’s not funny. What me to track you down while your eating with your mother (because your too ugly and stupid to have a girlfriend) and punch you?!

    Learn to spell!
