"You need that spine of your team and unfortunately, it hasn't really happened. I can stand here and try to make excuses, but it is what it is."It isn't going to get any better - it certainly doesn't look as if it is going to get any better for this season - so we have to live with it, get over the over the line and address everything and analyse everything and understand the reasons why better than we are doing at the moment." Bruce's argument has some merit - his side have conceded 24 goals in its last 10 games with a creditable 0-0 draw at Arsenal on March 5 their only clean sheet.In 2000, he transferred to Blackburn Rovers, where he got his first taste of Premier League football, before he moved on to Ipswich Town in 2001.He spent 2003–04 on loan at Leicester City, before he transferred to Everton in 2004."Certainly when [Michael] Turner and [Titus] Bramble were in tandem, we kept four or five clean sheets at that particular time, and that hasn't happened since.
With Villa currently languishing down in 19th place in the Championship having won just one of their first 11 games, Bent reckons Bruce has the ability to quickly rebuild confidence.
He said: "It's hugely disappointing that Darren has decided that his future lies away from Sunderland and the players, our supporters and the club as a whole has every right to feel massively let down.
"The timing is especially hard to take, given that we are progressing positively and are in a great position to push on.
He spent three years with Birmingham, during which he spent time on loan at Middlesbrough, Queens Park Rangers, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Sheffield United.
Liverpool were right to be wary of Sunderland’s most expensive signing and beforehand they spent time on working on ways to keep Bent quiet, not only making sure he was tightly marked, but also trying to cut off the supply line to him. Sunderland were the better side, but the only goal came after just five minutes and was scored in front of the fans who had travelled from Merseyside.
