Zaha and Townsend playing on the opposite sides to their better feet means Benteke is not compatible with them, cutting inside and playing one-twos, is not his game, but if Wilf goes and Townsend goes to the left and we get a right footed winger on the right he could do ok, think he would thrive at Burnley. I hope Wilf stays, Ben goes and we get a compatible striker.

Agree 100%, the forward cannot make a run and attack the ball, if the winger is always cutting back. Takes all the speed and power out of the strikers run.
That doesnít excuse some of the sitters that Benteke has missed though.
The ball needs to be whipped in first time, all that cutting back and floating it to the back post is a waste of time.
If we had wingers that cut inside and regularly smashed in goals , like Robben, that would be fine, but we havenít.
They should be switching wings a few times in matches, like Zaha and Bolasie did.

A couple of months ago when A.Villa were in mid-table, I spoke to a fervent supporter and told him I felt A.Villa could attain promotion and not long after they won 10 on the bounce starting with a 4-0 home win against Derby ! He reminded me of this just before the play-offs !

We discussed Benteke and he said that he would love to see him back at A.Villa !

Christ he obviously hasnít been following him for a while. Straight swap for Tyrone Mings would be good...

Tyrone Mings is on loan from Bournemouth.Has performed with great aplomb at A.Villa.Perhaps Bournemouth will want him back for their first team squad.

Tammy Abraham is another player on loan, from Chelsea and they might also want him back.In fact A.Villa had 5 players who featured who were on loan.

I guess the fans would love him back as they imagine he will perform as he did when he was there last time. The issue is would the management want him back? Do they want to set a team up to play to his strengths ? Fans views are one thing management views are another.

Villa being dumb enough to take him off our hands looks like our only option to get rid of this enormous drain on our finances now that the China links have gone quiet. Very keen to see this happen.

Please go to China or whoever wants you. I'd prefer two lower league strikers on 50k each rather than the 130k we're wasting a week on these wages
