Yet we had the chance two years ago to let him go, but no. we give him a new contract

Agree wholeheartedly with this... He's been stealing a living off us for a number of years now.. Why on earth would he want leave the bed he's made here.

 


Don't waste your time with jealousy. Sometimes your ahead, sometimes your behind, the race is long. But in the end it's only with yourself!!

Compared with South Norwood? It's a tossup

Hes no Harry Kane, but is still probably the best option weve got.
Keep keep keep, unless we upgrade. But even then, surely wed sooner offload Mateta, whos woeful.

What if we offered him a signing-OFF fee, like 2-3 million?

What you mean a golden **** off

I don't want to see any of our strikers go until we have brought in replacements.

 


One more point

At the end of the day. Benteke has cost us a fortune and will continue to until we bring in satisfactory replacement. The way we are operating now rotating 3 strikers during most matches is a good solution based on current personnel. At least we are maximising very limited energy levels in our two big front men. Change will eventually come but we have to be patient. Now PV is here change has already begun.

I think a Hit man would be cheaper

Burnley moving for Benteke to replace their 25million striker with a much cheaper option is a good measure to show the level Benteke has fallen to. Had Newcastle come in for him at 25m then different. But Burnley to replace their departed man at 8m says it all.

At the time I thought it was an extraordinary decision, what with Eduoard, Ayew, and Mateta already lined up. Perhaps the club thought the Eduoard deal might fall through, and Benteke was a safe option. I'm not 100% sure of the chronology, so correct me if I'm wrong.
Whatever, he's done nothing this season to justify his extension. PV could just as well have a quiet word with him telling him he'll be on the bench for the rest of the season, I truly doubt Benteke would be that bothered.
