Even with a slow build up he should be putting in more effort and scoring a few more.

I agree that Roy's tactics have not brought out the best of Benteke but strikers have to score goals, that's all they get judged on ultimately.

He doesn't have a shot on him, he has no left foot, he can't go past a player and get a shot away, he can't head the ball unless it's pinged in with pace 'away' from the keeper, he gets out muscled by smaller guys all the time, he makes odd runs behind defenders as if he doesn't want to be played in, he can hold the ball up if it's played into his chest but loses possession quite often because of his first touch...apart from that he's great and worth every penny!

Don't forget also those occasions when he is one on one with the keeper, he... always shoots straight at the keeper, boom tish!
I think the game against Wolves when they got that late equaliser sums him up - only been on 5 minutes and the ball comes out to him in space and the break is potentially on, a poor first touch and the Wolves player who was at least 5 yards behind promptly catches him up, forcing a piss poor pass to Zaha, who loses it and they bounce back and score. If we get £8m for him it'll be a top result!

I really can't see who would buy him for that price

Probably better to half the asking price and save on his huge wages

fully agree and don't forget he can't even score from the penalty spot, all in all an imposter of a striker!

To state that international teams are minor so it does not count yeah ok so remove all those teams from tournaments etc the results are meaningless clueless.

Now trying to compare to Vardy they are nothing alike complete different player wow you dont have a clue about football.

Yes Benetke goes and hides good one o my think use your brain look at the bigger picture its because of the super slow build up play and why would a guy even bother to charge into the box when he wont get the service.

I suggest you go back and watch the games under roy and when benteke was scoring for palace you will spot massive differences it may well open your eyes why theirs a problem.

4 pl goals since December 2017 what’s hard to understand.

Money wise we pretty much swapped Benteke/Townsend for Bolassie/Gayle, couldn’t believe it at the time. Thought we’d had a right result, looking back , no one did.

I only see one problem and that is Benteke who consistently just can not score goals, everytime he plays its like we are playing with 10, just look at his player ratings. Sorry but this man has had one reasonable season when he scored 15 goals and since then he has been useless. Roy has kept us up for three years now on a shoestring and that is what we should applauding. If we had to rely on Benteke goals keeping us up then we would have been long gone by now!

I have perused on this thread opinions about the need to provide Benteke with crosses in order to take advantage of his prowess in the air and that he is not provided with this service due to the way we play.

Some chap pointed out to me that Benteke has scored 72 PL goals but just 26 have been with his head.

Speaking of service, Bentenke has just opened a new tea room in London according to this article in Luxembourg! [Link]

Is this his way of buying favour with Roy? Will he be holding tea dances and bridge afternoons? Personally I think he is happy to work on his investments and ride out the remaining year of his contract, unless he gets an offer from another PL club. I really don't see him going abroad.

I'm amazed that he did get a contract extension, it certainly was not based on performance, sadly I think your right his tea house in London is being funded by his salary at CP and yes he probably will not want to leave London so he will continue to bleed the club for his undeserved salary whilst making tea and toasted tea cakes!

To put some perspective on this, as a centre forward he actually earned £16 million between his last two goals in open play at Selhurst Park.
