Darren Bent on being denied meeting hero Will Smith, why Chelsea vs Liverpool is the game he'd want to watch again and more

talksport.com, 27 March 2020, 05:53
With no live sport for the foreseeable future, we have taken the opportunity to catch up with talkSPORT presenters and pundits to gain some insight into the things they like and to recall some of their favourite football memories.

First up is former striker Darren Bent, who played in the Premier League for a number of years with clubs including Aston Villa, Charlton, Ipswich, Tottenham and Sunderland and represented England.

Favourite film

I kind of chop and change, it's between three of them. There's The Warriors, American Gangster and The Matrix.

Favourite box sets

I've seen a lot of good stuff but something I'm watching at the moment is Schitts Creek, which is about a rich family that go bust and are forced to live in an ugly Canadian town they named as a joke.

Favourite video game

Me and my mates play Call of Duty. We play Fortnite a little bit but I've loved Call of Duty since it came out. I do dabble with FIFA a little bit but that's more my son who plays it. Sometimes when I want a bit of nostalgia, I get out my Sega Mega Drive and play Streets of Rage. It's an absolute classic.

Favourite music

I love my hip-hop, R&B and reggae. My favourite rapper right now is Rick Ross, I listen to him a lot. There's a group called The Internet I listen to a lot. I like some classic hip-hop so listen to Jay Z, he's one of my favourites of all time and a bit of Kendrick Lamar. I like British artists like Wretch 32, Kano, Ghetts, Krept and Konan, too.

Favourite holiday you've been on

I've been blessed to go pretty much wherever I wanted. I went to St. Barts with my wife but my favourite I actually came back from a few weeks ago in Barbados. It was the first time my kids went…the kids went on the jet skis and did other water sports, went to the nice restaurants and played on the beaches. We were there for ten days and it was absolutely lovely. The kids have already been asking when we can go back!

Favourite meal

If I'm cooking it's probably a stir fry with chicken, turkey or steak and Singapore noodles, sweet chilli sauce, the hot and spicy vegetables, a few peppers. I love all that.

Favourite drink

If I'm on holiday I like a good rum punch. At home, I like a standard Diet Coke, Ribena and water of course. I do try and stay away from fizzy drinks but I'll have a Diet Coke or Coke Zero if I'm craving one. I like Pepsi Max - Pepsi Max Cherry is the one. You're missing out if you don't have the cherry one!

Best day of your life

The day my kids were born. It's special when all your kids are born but the first time I became a father was the strangest but best feeling of my life.

Which person would you like to meet the most who you haven't met?

I'd have to have a top three. One would be Will Smith. It's funny because every summer between 2007-10, I would go to Los Angeles for some training before pre-season was due to start and I used to go to all the NBA games, I saw Kobe Bryant win his last championship. I then saw Will Smith courtside, no more than two feet away and I went to tap him on the shoulder to ask for a picture but then I got this arm on my chest and it's his security who told me 'Will's not having any pictures or autographs today, sorry.' He was right there!

Mark Wahlberg is another one. He's one of my favourite actors, he seems like a really cool guy as well.

The final one is Muhammad Ali, he's one of my sporting idols.

Funniest moment in playing career

It was probably the beach ball goal against Liverpool. It was crazy and such a unique thing to happen and even now when I look back at it, I still can't believe it happened.

You have so many good times playing football and when you're in it, you honestly think it'll never end. But one day you'll wake up and bang, finished.

No more training, no more jokes in the dressing room, no more camaraderie.

One football match you'd love to watch again

The 4-4 for Tottenham against Arsenal would be one I'd watch. Outrageous!

But if it was one as a fan it would be an FA Cup match between Chelsea and Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in 1997.

Liverpool went 2-0 up and I thought Chelsea were going to get battered. But in the second half, Chelsea came back and won! Mark Hughes and Gianfranco Zola scored and Gianluca Vialli got two and the final score was 4-2.

I remember being in the stand with my dad and it was rocking because at that time Chelsea could never beat Liverpool.
