Iíd love him to pull his hamstring in the warmup.

Sadly, he is never likely to run fast enough to that!

I was discussing at length how the club could get some value out of CB over a few pints before kick off on Saturday. In the absence of a wealthy Chinese club owner who has been in a coma for 3 years and just woken up we came up with the following:

1)Get him to sell half time super draw tickets, as this requires little or no movement.
2)Perhaps he could step in for Pete the Eagle as he has the physic to cope with the costume , and he generally wanders around the pitch aimlessly flapping his arms.
After that we were struggling.

I would put him in charge of rubbish collection and hope that the refuse men pick him up as well!

Itís sad when our most expensive striker ever is the most popular object of our humour. You do need a sense of humour to support Palace though.

On £120,000 pounds per week Benteke is having the best laugh at Palace. No wonder he doesnít want to move. Only Liverpool must be laughing louder.

maybe a top Turkish club will come in for him. They always seem to pay over-the-odds for past-it Prem players.

He owes us and his performances haven't been great but I thought that this was an interesting stats

"Yeah, I know that," he says with a chuckle. According to stats from the Premier League, only Cardiff (562) and Watford (570) attempted fewer crosses than Palace (577) last season. The season he finished as the club's top scorer (2016/17) they crossed the ball 872 times - only Southampton recorded more (947).

Not an excuse by any means but if you are not getting the right balls into the box it doesn't matter what target man you have there goals are going to be difficult to come by.

but lets be honest, this guy cannot even score from the penalty spot and you want more from a striker than someone who just stands on the penalty spot waiting for the ball to come to his head and even when it does he misses!

I notice they chose to ignore the stats which show how many times he has fluffed his lines in front of goal, missed absolute sitters and failed to contribute assists. He is toilet and no stat on the planet should protect him from his lack of ability with the ball at his feet.

Budgie in slippers comes to mind. He couldn't kick snow off a rope.

Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

Again with this fake news? He didn't score headers even before coming to Palace!
