As with all transfers a player won't leave unless he is going to get the same money at the new club.
We would have to give him away for another club to pay his wages and I doubt Palace will do that.
they want him to come good - obviously - not just for us but to be able to offload him.
Bloody annoying as to me his best days are far behind him!

According to an article in the times today, he has cost us £8897 per minute played since we bought him. Only as chef has cist more ar £11013 per minute played. Crazy, crazy money.

What's the big difference though between Benteke and Mitrovic?

Mitrovic in fact seems slower and more sluggish to me.

What he does do though is put himself about a bit and attacks balls in the box

Mitrovicís career hasnít gone completely off the rails.

A little thing called goals...

 


Don't waste your time with jealousy. Sometimes your ahead, sometimes your behind, the race is long. But in the end it's only with yourself!!

When did Benteke score last & then when did he score before that?? If he hadnít cost us so much he wouldnít even be anywhere near the bench let alone the first team!

I get the impression that if RH quietly pulled Benteke aside and (after giving a long list of reasons with examples for the decision) told him that he was benched for the rest of the season, Benteke would just shrug his shoulders.
I see no footballing desire in him whatsoever. Comes on with 10/15 minutes to go, no chasing, no harrying, no movement, no control, and essentially a body language that suggests he is not interested.

Who's to say mitrovik isn't at the start of a similar run. Fulham are a lot more creative going forward than us abd yet he still can't score...

basically this

His stupid " hands to the ears " thing was a sign he had lost any interest in this club.

The penalty fiasco showed he thinks he is bigger than the management team.

I believe financially he is a total loss now, give his place on the bench to someone who wants to try and has a future. He can go and train with the kids and see his profile and value diminish to the point where his next contract after Palace will be much worse financially.
