Would we buy benteke now? No.
So basically we are flogging a dead horse now.

I no it's easy to moan and criticise but I think any striker at any age level at palace would of scored more than 2 all season.

Let's say benteke scored 7 goals which is still crap, it would have given us a win and perhaps a draw at the minimum making us nearly safe. I put it down to benteke we are in this league position.

Another thing. How would you feel if Benteke had been lining up against us yesterday?
It would worry me.

He was, and we wouldn"t like it! Get fit for saturday christian, we missed you !

Most of you have never played a decent level..I have ,,,,,and trust me Benteke is class and a key player for us, ...shut up moaning about him ...if you do ...you know jack s*** about high level football

It's the same old few. Like i said i hate slating him, but what does he do to make you feel better other than keeping the ball out of our net, which is brilliant don't get me wrong.

He attracts criticism, he might get his head on a few crosses and the odd pass through to his fellow team mate's, and again it's lead to a penalty for us but what else does he do really answer that "Hutchyeagle".

You might have "played at a high level and quality" back in your day, it's the here and now what counts and if he just put a few of his 20 odd chances away we would'nt be where we are now in a religation dogfight which ive said quite a few times.

He doesn't help himself out of the big hole he's in at the moment no matter how hard he plays it's not going to change is it. Keep him benched the penny might drop " one day " probably when he plays for another club where he can go and mug them off at £120.000 a week see how the other chairman feels about that.

Palace look more mobile and pacy without him but still lack a clinical striker.
If we stay up I would like to replace Benteke with a fast, aggressive striker who converts a good proportion of his chances.
A better version of Andre Gray if you like.
This would suit the way we play and take the pressure off Zaha.

he is a key player and just having one of those seasons. Scored 16 PL goals last year and there was a 400+ thread wanting Parish to bring him to the club.

We are so quick to want players out the club and bring in who....We all want a quick, prolific goal scorers, but they are difficult to find.

History shows that Wickham and Sørloth are not prolific...they don’t get the same level of stick.

I has tested my patience on more than one occasion but we are 17th in the premier league. I think Benteke is the best we can hope for and a bit of support through this rough patch.

Otherwise, we sell for 10-12m for someone else to pick up is 140k wages and buy someone else???

It wouldn't amaze me if buyers baulked at his wage demands given that there's no guarantee he'll ever get his powers back, and if that's the case we'll be lucky to get f*** all for him. Probably better off letting Hodgson try to fix him, if he can't nobody can.

He took a penalty and missed when he had no place too - that has cost us.
His primary job is to score goals - anything else is a bonus and part of playing in a team - so not scoring, that has cost us.

But it's higher up i feel is what is costing us - not CB's fault there is no one to compete with him.

Lady luck too, so many injuries - but why???

 


This was once a quality forum....

Stupid question why ?
Scott and Jason Cruciate ligament injuries trying to tackle Kevin Du Bruyne.
That’s two reasons.

I look at lower lges there are goal scorers, we didnt take a chance with any of them, hence Benteke having to play solo in the squad, that hasnt helped him or us, he knows he is dropping further down the ranks at all levels and not trying that extra bit to get in the 18yard box and attack the ball is not helping ,
i even think we would have scored more with Adebayo Akinfenwa big lump seems to get goals,
we are in the position we are by all round mistakes and bad luck, win as a team lose as a team
