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

I must have missed this, when exactly?

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

Mitrovic in fact seems slower and more sluggish to me.

Mitrovic is a pain to play against and causes problems due to his strength and aerial ability. When I've seen Fulham of late he has been isolated with the team not playing to his strengths. If he came to Palace we would need to deliver more crosses into the box as that appears to be his bread and butter. He actually reminds me more of Murray than Bentenke in the way he bullies defenders.

I keep hoping Tekkers will come back the player he was but aside from that overhead kick he actually looks worse than before, if anything.

I keep forgetting hes even at palace, now that we have batsman and as for coming on the pitch , I think hes got more movement when hes on the bench.

Shame but I think his best goal at Selhurst will likely be for Villa. I'd take any goal from him at the moment to be honest.

without any doubt , the most costly signing in Palace history.

In terms of cost per goal scored...past and future anyway.

Just needs a bullet header into the net to re-ignite the flame !
We have all been living in hope for seemingly an eternity that Benteke will return to his goalscoring days.

Confidence lost is a killer, very sad for him.

Not that good for us either !

We need the Benteke of old and I suspect there are umpteen examples of forwards who have been totally devoid of confidence but returned to former glories.

It happens to all sorts of sportsmen and women in every sport, once it has gone it is difficult to get it back. I can think of several golfers in particular who have gone from world class to next to useless in a short space of time.

Clive Allen scored 32 in 49 for QPR, then joined Arsenal but never played because of the Sansom deal and was pretty hopeless for us ..9 goals and relegated! ..back to QPR and scored bucket loads again! He stands out for me.

Tiger Woods spectacularly went didn't he, womanising didn't help! I wonder if outside influences are more the cause for confidence being lost?
