Bent future in doubt after Burnley pull-out

Darren Bent's future at Tottenham was thrown into doubt last night after the striker pulled out of his club's Carling Cup semi-final second leg against Burnley.

Middlesbrough 0 Chelsea 5: Belletti is hot shot as Chelsea use Boro for target practice

Middlesbrough managed to upstage Chelsea yesterday but they did so by being an embarrassment. In conceding five goals in just over an hour, four in 16 second-half minutes, Boro at times displayed a lack of the basic competitive spirit. The players and their manager, Gareth Southgate, were rightly harangued by Teesside's faithful. This was as joyless as the bitter times under Steve McClaren, and Southgate described it as "a humiliation. It might have been eight".

Barnsley 1 Chelsea 0: Odejayi makes a name for himself amid Chelsea's anonymous stars

In the build-up to this match a veteran journalist visited Oakwell and asked for a player to interview. One was presented, but not introduced. After 10 minutes of carefully vague questions about playing Chelsea the hack thanked the player, waited until he was out of earshot and said to the press officer. "Who was that?"
