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 don’t 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.

 


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

He’s always come across to me as a bit of a wet flannel. Yesterday was no different although he is definitely improving. His pass to Ayew was exceptional by anybody’s standards. Roy is bound to persist I’ve got a hunch he might start knocking them in again in our remaining games. Especially with his head.

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!


Yes, i agree , i trust in ex Liverpool and England manager sir Roy of Croydon, to know what he"s doing, keeping us up again. which to anyone over 40 is successful season, obviously a good cup run next year would be a bonus! Well done Christian,great reverse pass to make Jordans goal, and you could see he appeciated it in the celebration, world class, keep going and the goals will surely come!

Not to mention the great defensive work, especially at corners, the winning of headers to set up an attack, and the all round team player, now you are over your injury you can get back to the 15 goal Benteke that kept us up to be where we are now,don"t worry about the 50 odd people who will knock you on here on a regular basis, thats life, think of the 25000 in selhurst and the other hundreds of thousands who don"t have a season ticket that don"t and appreciate your all round game,in ex England manager, ex Liverpool champions manager, we trust!

His 2 last games in general has not been bad. Assist yesterday brilliant, but 4 goals in 70 matches for our main striker - simply unheard of!
And his stationary waving with his arms when (often) pressing the opponents....and again, a horrible miss after five minutes.
Same as vs Newcastle. It is all right if not scoring from that distance, but at least hit the target and make the goalie work to keep the ball out.

Match of the day didn't show his early miss.
Very odd.

It was but it was a great ball and an early chance so I was surprised they didn't show it.
Not the header?
Maybe they feel sorry for him?
He was better yesterday though in open play

Shows where his head is at, not having the confidence to take a touch. Even a poor touch would likely have taken it around the keeper with enough space and time to set up a finish.

If many months of sessions with Sports Psychologists hasn't unlocked some of his prowess then the team are carrying him. However, seems he's playing with a freer head, looser approach, not as pained and tense as recently and actually enjoying his 80 mins on the park. So, things can only get better.

He offers us more than Tosun so I would keep starting him. Tosun last 2 bad misses shows that he is not a player we should be signing.

I'm not sure that you can make such a judgement when we have seen very little of Tosun so far. Benteke has been responsible for a lot more than "2 bad misses".

I'd like to see him get a chance from the start so we will truly know what he is capable of.
