Firstly, there was only ever a media rumour that Benteke was one of several ‘target men’ Chelski were looking at.

Secondly, they have made it clear the last 3 transfer windows that Batshuayi is not for sale.

Where you get this “Conte wanting to swap” thing from is beyond me. If that were true, I cannot see why SP wouldn’t have jumped at the chance
.

Spot on. Carroll was also thrown into the pot but when you consider Giroud made the switch, Tekkers and Carroll was laughable.

Bcause he was stupid.. And there were a lot of stupid users on this site too who were saying that Benteke is better than Batshuayi and that they should actually give us Batshuayi+30 million just so we give them Benteke. I'm gonna dig out the thread if you don't believe me.

Benteke still had good credentials back then for people like Conte, though he had clearly been misfiring for some time.

Why on earth does RH KEEP bringing on Benteke as a sub. As soon as he is on it is game over. I just don’t get it.

Well he certainly managed that over the last few weekends. Bring on tekkers with 10 min to go ffs , it’s like Huddersfield bringing on Puncheon 1-3 up.

Before Michy - billions of assists/attempts but... no goals.
After Michy - assists/attempts have dried up but... same goals.

I know he's hopeless at approach play, but I was hoping he would be that last kick that finishes the team. Presumably, with him our midfield is inevitably weaker with one player having to give way?

This football lark can be quite frustrating.

Play beneteke to feed him, great header by him to bats right at the end yesterday.. I want them to try more of that in matches, they could have an understanding (& language) to get the best out of each other!!

do you know if they speak Flemish or French? What if one speaks one and the other speaks the other? And they might not get on because of it. Mind you football is a universal language, a flick on is a flick on in any language (not strictly true but you know what I mean).

I think he runs and presses a lot more than Benteke. So not sure what you mean by "the rest of his game"

Some people will never be happy. I think its promising that we have a striker that in some games hasnt done much, but still popped up with a goal, thats what poachers do.

Do people think Benteke would have created that chance for himself V Watford let alone scored it? he'd have backed off Mariappa and let him play the diagonal.

Batshuyai is a solid striker to have in the team and makes us a better proposition, than if we start with benteke or ayew.

This post has been merged from a topic called 'Michy' by bexleydave

The guy has a touch, some skill and can turn and wallop the ball towards goal.
Why oh why is it so difficult to get a striker who is willing to charge about, challenge for everything and always be in the mixer. Where are we going to find our poor mans Diego Costa in the summer?
Barring a distinct upturn in goal output over these last games, If we end up splurging 30 millies on Batman I would be mortified.
Just want a horrible ugly hardnut who can score, where is he.
