Nope. Heíd still be a useless Cvnt and always will be, so we extend his contract.

If he scores against Brighton to contribute towards a victory he will be lauded and applauded and Benteke will feel like a camel in a caravanseral which has reached an oasis.

It's not just Benteke that has got worse at finishing, it's the whole team! Players who were previously chipping in with goals (Zaha, mcarthur, the odd defender at set pieces), coupled with the fact mili's set piece quality has declined (except penalties), shows that it's something to do with training. We've scored the least amount of goals in whole of PL, and Benteke is still regularly scoring for Belgium when he plays.
The facts all point to something changing in training (maybe a focus on shape and defending instead of finishing?) since Roy came in.
I personally don't mind too much as we have our highest ever points total at this stage of season. But I do think benteke gets a rough deal from it!

The short answer is "no way". The longer one is that even if he then went on to score another half a dozen or more goals before the end of the season, I wouldn't want to keep him but at least we might be able to get a reasonable amount for him in the summer.
All pie-in-the-sky, of course because it isn't going to happen (is it?!!!?)

Benteke played ok today, set up the goal and generally held up play reasonably well. However he fluffed his lines in front of goal yet again, so the big question is can we continue to play with a centre forward who does not score goals? Unfortunately it is not a position where you can hide. You either bury chances at a reasonably high percentage of success, or you donít and that stat kinda defines a centre forward.

I must admit I no longer consider him useless because he has some decent play in him, but as a goal scorer he looks finished. I understand why Roy continues to play him but we desperately require an upgrade.

We've got an upgrade - Jordan Ayew. Put Townsend back in the team so Ayew can play up front again.

He should only retain his place if he's scoring.

If we keep clean sheets we always have the chance to knick a goal. Benteke set up the goal today and also won the header leading to the foul on Ayew last week for the free kick. So he is starting to contribute to key moments even if he canít score

Regardless of his assist today Tekkers should start on the bench. He's woeful.

He wasn't today , and if everyone else's finishing wasn't as bad as his he would have many more assists to his name.

Palace as a team at the moment seen to be able to invent new ways of missing chances
