Agreed. Benteke has been incredible last few games. Some people just donít like to be proved wrong.

proved wrong that he sleeps when his job is safe ?

yes he has talent, but not enough hunger.

An interesting stat given in the commentary is that we have only won one game in the last 3 years when we have been behind at half-time.

Fans wanted more open, more attacking football, end to end stuff.. this is what you get. Our defence does not have the legs for it. Yet still we get constant moaning, it's end of season people..Relax.

Maybe now, fans can see why Roy sets up so defensively...

So our crap defending is down to the fact that we are attacking too much! So how did it work for us in the first 20 minutes when our usual defensive shape allowed Villa to bombard us with shots, crosses, corners and 72% possession?

Only when we opened up did we start to get into the game and the individual crap defensive performances that cost us their two goals are not directly associated with our attacking which I think has been ok today.

The rebuild can't come soon enough. Ironically the area in which we were supposed to be strong (defence) is our obvious weakness. To the contrary we have a variety of attacking options but not the manager who can deliver on that particular front.
Next season will provide some solutions if the right man is brought in.

Incredible when he's playing for a contract. Not that we would know from the other 2 unknown quantities of Bats or Mateta who only come on when we are 3-1 down or 2-0 down in the last 10 mins of a game.

This playing for a contract stuff is rubbish. No one does that. Itís made up by fans. Heís playing well and scoring because heís finally being trusted as our main striker with a string of starts. And weíre finally putting the ball in the box for him. Itís really not rocket science.

We need a goal and he brings on Tonka! Hopefully Kouyate goes into midfield and gives us the legs weíve been lacking all
Season in midfield.

Maybe Tomkins will score.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Finally being trusted? Are you joking? He's been given more starts for somebody who has been ineffectual than any player should be given. Roy has had nothing but faith in the player. It's only recently he's done much useful although he still misses a bagful of chances and doesn't create a mass of chances.

As already stated, what has he done for the previous 2 years?
