Is it really that baffling when you take into consideration the state of his performances over the last few seasons? It shouldn't be. Honestly I'm trying to fathom what's made thendifference this year. PV, more competition for places, RH gone.

I'd also be interested to see the stats on which part of his body he's been scoring with. Everyone was going on about him needing crosses, hasn't he scored more with his feet after at least one touch to control the ball? Who'd have thought that was possible given the general consensus was that his main threat is his head. It's a more complex thing than you make out, especially as the fella burned through all the good will the fans had banked for him a very long time ago.

Oh contraire- if he was so bad previously-surely a goal, or even a brace-should have the crowd singing his praises! In any case, the site was almost down as a poster said, so thats the real reason.

It looks like we missed MacArthur driving us, and our defending was very poor today. Ward had a bit of a mare.
Not sure why he played Ayew ahead of Edoward but there you go.

Milo instead of MacArthur? Why did we sign Hughes?

Why on earth are you talking about relegation?

Not worried a bit by prospect of relegation. Just replying to the poster who said that at least 40 points will be needed. It won’t be that many and we’ll get past the total in comfort.

I dread to think what Roy would have done to Gallagher if he had been here last season. 30 games on the bench and 8 starts as a holding midfielder once Luca gets suspended.

Without Mr Hodgson we'd now be playing in the Championship, so get over your issues with him.

I agree, I wish these idiots would just move on. Would of been really messy on here if RH was still manager today and failed to pick any of Olise, Edouard or Eze.

I think PV is doing a great job, as did RH.

Was a bit taken aback that nobody posted he had scored YT, to make it 1-0! Nothing, zero, zilch, nish! I have never seen a thread here when we go 1-0 up, and nobody at all comments, but they do when he misses that would have made it 2-0! Then nothing, or maybe one, saying he gets the second! Baffling!

Totally agree considering Benteke practically got no service under Hodgson for 3 years or so. I remember him getting slated by a few on here after the Brighton draw. Baffles me. People need to move on from scapegoating and accept he is a good player

What’s your point? Hodgson is a good manager yet many countless games benteke literally got no service?

My point is Benteke is a good player but for whatever reason he had a poor few years where he missed countless chances and seemed to suffer a great loss of confidence where he hid from the ball. He also had some injuries to deal with. However I do not blame it on Roy Hodgson which is the implication of your post. I am really, really pleased Benteke is playing well and getting into goal scoring positions(as he did at the end of last season). Neither of his goals today were scored from crosses, which was constantly being cited in previous years for his poor form.

If we want Benteke to score more goals then Olise needs to play to supply the crosses and I would pick Edouard to support him maybe at the expense of Wilf.

Why is it CP that whether you are on the politics or this chat you are always itching for a reaction.

Benteke did ok, lucky deflection for first goal but got his shot away quickly, then missed a sitter, 2nd goal was a cool finish. He is a centre forward and should finish chances like those. What do you want people to say, “he was awesome”? Because he wasn’t, he was ok.

Benteke haters like you are never happy. If he plays awesome but doesn’t score, “he’s a forward and should be judged on goals.” If he scores a brace but only plays okay, he’s simply scoring the goals he should.”

Give me a break. He’s on fire this season.

We got caught out with Burnley’s hoof ball tactics and Andersen should have got red carded. So happy with a point, but we could and should have taken all 3!

Had all the play and lead on 2 occasions in the match, onwards and upwards I guess.

Give the lads credit for a great 1st half of football. We knew what to expect from the home side, and they did not disappoint. We were all over the place on set pieces but still earned a point. Credit to PV and his staff - only baffled to see Ayew and Benteke in starting 11 with Olise and Edouard on the bench.
