The problem is that he is as lazy as CB and lacks areal presence. He is also terrible in being offside all the time in being late to move back. A much, much better finisher though then CB , so would agree with giving him a run.

Batshuayi should be given a run off 3/4 games with Wiif, then we will know if he is worth the money Chelsea want for him

Hmm, will another experiment that has so far yielded nothing really be worth it? From what I have seen of Benteke and Bats this year, Benteke is miles ahead in terms of offering a goal threat and that’s saying something.

He seemed to be coming back to the "old Tekkers" - 3 goals and all-around improvement. Then the red card, suspension, and now two games back to his worst.
What has really happened to him?

I think if Andros can cross the ball higher than a foot off the ground Tekkers might have something to attack.

You must have missed the cross for Zaha's goal against Leicester then?

In a previous post I said “apart from the one for the goal”. Your not saying his crosses into the box are good are you?

The heat-map of Christian's performance against Leicester is revealing.

He never went anywhere.

Heat map for Benteke! I didn't think one ever existed. As in he doesn't ever move fast enough on the pitch to create one.
Only time he has a great heat map is when he's out driving!

They're not great, but far better than those by Zaha. In fact there is the problem in a nutshell: a striker who doesn't move much combined with wingers who can't cross very well

Footballers that can’t cross a ball, I find it incredible! I could cross a ball with either foot in and away from the keeper when I played,and I got paid f*** all for it!

I'm 20st plus and could cross a ball better than a few of our players lol! not to mention putting corners to the back post almost everytime so f**k knows why Palace players always seem to make a mess of it?

I think Tekkers if the ball is sent into the box he will attack it as best as he can. With the delivery into box, it was brought into focus during the Leicester game where Andros had two chances from dead ball free kicks into the box. Everyone came up from the back as well for Andros to completely screw up both opportunities and Leicester nearly did us on the counter because his crosses were that bad.

Harry Redknapp called it at half time by saying “ Andros seems to have lost his drive and threat, he used to bomb down the wing when I managed him”

Townsend was probably 19 or 20 when he played for Tottenham and at the age of 29 he does not possess the pace and energy he had in his younger days.
