From where I'm sitting, his movement needs a lot of work. Doesn't seem to anticipate anything or gamble on any crosses and just generally plods about.
When Zaha slipped in Puncheon for a shot today Benteke was asleep 20 yards away, not following in etc. I remember him being terrifying when he was at Villa, just wondering if that's going to resurface at some point?

8 goals in 13 for us, he's doing something right, no? Granted he can still improve but his movement and knowledge of where to be is a lot better than Wickham's. He's still only 26 so in theory we will get the best years out of him should he stay a few years.

He had a very good Agbonlahor beside him at Villa plus Delph and Nzogbia just behind. Much better players apart from Wilf to bring out the best in him. He's doing not bad considering the lower quality of player he is associating himself with now after Belgium, Liverpool and Villa.

All fair points. Just for 30 mil I would like to see him being a bit more of a menace.

He's on target for 20 league goals this season.

Eight goals in 14 games tells me he's not doing too much wrong. It's the other end that worries me!

..and how many attempts has he had at goal? sure could have scored more, his defending hasn't helped the other end too.

And he holds the ball up, brings in other players and scares enough s*** out of defenders that a second striker can get space and time. Highly effective.

This is not the problem.

10 other 1st teamers to dig out, before him.

Benteke moves slower than the Queen Mary..... If its not on his head forget it.....27M or 32M he was massively overpriced. Watford bought Okaka for under 7M looks a bargain.

8 goals already (no settling in time) how much should he have a cost ? An international centre forward. How much did we get for 'step over Bollasie'?

Here we are shipping goals like it's going out of fashion and people are complaining about the best centre forward we've ever had?
