think to be honest if we are letting wickham go, and (i assume) not taking up our £20m option on bats then a new contract for benteke at the current £70k a week makes sense.

No it doesn't. I'd rather give Sainsbury's the money and crack on with the new stand.

Benteke is in a rich vein of form, scoring 4 in his last 8 PL games !!

Benteke on a lower salary works for me, however Iím sure he will get better offers (perhaps from Belgium) and he will leave? If we did get Lampard, Iím sure he will utilise Benteke better than Hodgson does?

In a team that refuses to play direct football or crosses.

Would like to see Townsend in for Ayew against City. Particularly, if Ayew hasn't eaten or drunk anything for at least 6 hours prior to kick off.

Yes, Benteke has improved the last couple of games. But seeing him standing in the middle of the park with his arms shaking, instead of closing down and moving - please, please let this be his farewell season.
Not to mention all his misses and bad positioning....

I think whether he stays may well come down to whether we can afford to replace him. If we set up to deliver crosses into the box next season then he is probably capable of notching 10+ goals (if he stays fit). He also still wins most balls in the air. The thing is, he doesn't create anything for himself; he doesn't close defenders down really, he seems unable to go past a player anymore, and when was the last time he scored from outside the box? I could see a situation next season where he could be an option from the bench as an option when we want to go more direct. Also, if Dyche did come in he would probably like him as well.

It's very telling that no deal is on the table, as I'm sure he will get plenty of offers from abroad and if we were that desperate to keep him we would have got a deal done by now to avoid him agreeing a pre-contract elsewhere. Palace probably know he'd be quite happy to stay in London and maybe the two parties might agree on more favourable terms come the summer. I doubt any clubs in Europe would offer him more than 60/70k per week at this stage of his career. He seems like a gentle giant, but I really hope he isn't seen as our main striker going into next season.

In the end Parish might just decide he's spent too much money already on a player past his prime.

And still an average of of 5 goals per season...

He's lived a charmed life at Palace and will continue to do so with RH at the helm.
