So you’re saying Roy cannot play Zaha on the right and Townsend on the left at any point in a 90 minute match? What’s in Roy’s cards that says he can’t? While we’re at it, why do we only attack teams at Selhurst once all of the opposition are behind the ball, and then predictably offer no threat whatsoever? This happens several times a match.

There’s several to blame in all this.

The owners, Roy, Benteke, Zaha, although I feel his frustration when we plan to keep Benteke the wardrobe.

The issue is that playing Zaha right and Townsend left, whilst getting more out of Benteke, gets less out of Townsend/Zaha. It’s catch 22

Why are people obsessed with Benteke not scoring, he is not scoring because Roy is not playing to his strengths, even Messi wouldn’t score if he not being fed, recently he has being doing lots including tackling deep into midfield, like robbing Pogba which led to the second goal against United. He did plenty against Everton

Agreed.
I've posted before.
Get the bloody ball in first time.
Benteke's will find it.
That's what hes good at.
All this cutting back and beating 3 players twice sets the defence.
BFS sussed out his strengths.
Whip the ball in and he will bully his way to it.
Check out his goals and 80% plus are scored on the end of a first time cross.
Wilf on the right
Andres on the left.

Did plenty against Everton? Ayew was by far the better on the day.
Penalty against Bournemouth!
Scoring against Leicester & cupping his ears.
Having the highest miss ratio to scoring chances.
£130k per week wages.
Turning down transfer to China.
Lack of goals

Talking Pogba, one swallow does not a summer make.
Just get rid, take the loss; because giving him a new contract would just waste more ££ we don't seem to have to spare currently.

If Benteke tried to shoot himself, would he miss?

Beat Manure without him starting, start him & lose to Colchester; on pens....
Surely even Roy wont be starting him again.

This is true, when they are supported by runners, but our 2 wingers could swap, whereas they never ever do now.

Ayew will start Saturday and rightfully so. Townsend won’t start and which again is right. And as for Wickham having watched him tonight, he shouldn’t be near the first team. Benteke won’t get service, so will just have to be an impact sub. Hodgson doesn’t use his strength, so until one of them goes it’s the bench for Benteke or sold to a team that knows how to use him?

Benteke and Wickham were so immobile tonight. We are knocking the ball sideways and backwards in midfield and neither of them were making any effort to move to receive a pass. £150k a week in wages between them, and Jordan did more in 10 minutes than the pair of them did all match - against a league 2 side. Shockingly bad.

We should pay up his contract and tell him to sod off to some random Chinese team that would be mug enough to think he’s a footballer.

Absolutely pointless having him at the club.
