why are we talking about murray? he plays for brighton now if you didnt know. he is history, i loved him as much as the next fan but he is gone.

benteke is not finished, he is 27 years old FFS. hea not perfect i know that, but in the 4 games this season the oppo goalkeepers have made some serious saves to keep his headers out in every game.

he has also missed some sitters but he wont score every chance, if he did he would be playing for citeh/barca/real.

we are palace, a small PL club, we cant afford kanes/agueros/lakakus/salahs, we are where we are, and i still think bentekkers will get 12-15 goals this season.

Hope you're right, brauny, seeing as we're stuck with him until the end of next season.

Enough is enough!!
We cannot afford to squander chances and so we canít be waiting for Benteke to regain his confidence. He needs to be dropped !!

I like your optimism. I hope youíre right and Iíd like to think no one is ignorant enough to start booing him if he continues to start. He averaged just over 10 goals a season in his 4 years at Villa. Scored 10 at Liverpool in his year there. Would be delighted if he could score 5 times as many goals as last season.

I get judged if I donít meet my goals at work. As a striker heís no different and people are justified in being disappointed with him. He was £27m quid, not a gamble on a non-league player so expectations are always going to be higher.

Fact is we over paid for him and the club knew they did at the time which is why the transfer took so long. Liverpool also knew they overpaid for him, knew we were desperate for a striker and the window was closing and wanted as much of their £32m back as possible. He is capable of performing better, we all know that, which is why itís so frustrating to see him wasting so many chances. Hope Roy finds a solution and donít mind if thatís some time on the bench at the moment.

Sorry if already been mentioned, he needs to build confidence and if nothing changed in a few more games can he be loaned out? Maybe try Villa where he did fairly well and then if he scores a few we can decide whether to have back or see if they want to make a decent offer in January??

Agree. Murray is better than him at everything.

12/15 goals? On what evidence. 3 goals last year , one header straight at schmeical that went in and a penalty. . Heís played 4 games this year , no goals , loads of chances.
Hope you are right. But youíre not, youíre wrong unfortunately.

Confidence is a key determinant of success as a striker, and everybody associated with Palace, be they management, coaching staff, pundits and fans KNOWS that Christian Benteke needs only 1 or 2 goals to re-gain the confidence to compete as our lead striker.

To drop him from the starting line-up would be discouraging and unhelpful. On the other hand if he were to spend a few weeks gaining confidence in the 'second 11' games he might return stronger and mentally prepared.

His goal scoring record is abysmal and we cannot afford to wait for him to maybe find his mojo.
Sorloth is crap as well.
I never thought I would write how much I wanted Wickham to be fit!
Benteke has to be dropped though and like last season we need to find a different way to play otherwise we are in the poop again.

Benteke is now joining the ranks of Akinbiyi, Andrews, Easter and Adebola as one of the worst strikers weíve ever had.

The problem is Sorloth looks off the pace for this league and wickham just cannot get himself fit.

Perhaps re-signing sako until jan will give us an short term alternative and just hope we find a team silly enough to take Benteke off our hands.

I don't think its a case of signing Sako "until January", its signing Sako "from" January, ie transfer window

Didn't Pards sell Murrey and buy this (now) useless sticker. he was appalling today, missed at least 3 easy goal chances.
However, thats not Pards fault, it seemed a good idea at the time.
