How do you know this with such certainty, he hasn't had a proper opportunity yet. I know you like Benteke, but the bottom line is he just isn't scoring goals, or even looking like he might score one. Sorloth on the other hand looks like he could be a handful given the chance.

Clearly we miss wilf as much as any club in the league misses one player, so much of our threat is dependent on him. However, it’s simply not fair to say we create zero for benteke with or without wilf. Statistics show he has missed more ‘easy’ goalscoring chances per minute played than anyone else in the division. In the last few games without zaha he has missed chances that you would think he would score. I can’t see how the unknown sorloth can be much worse than the known benteke. He is so bereft of confidence it’s surely fair to wonder if he will ever get his mojo back. How long does a slump in form go on for before his standard of play becomes his new level? Can’t live on past golories forever, nearly a whole season looking like a decent target man with little skill or pace who can’t hit a barn door.

That's fair. He's a decent centre forward that has been stripped of confidence for a long time now, it's gone way past streaky.

Whatever team we put out on Monday, there won't be a great deal of creation in it. When this is the case, in my opinion, you need a striker that's going to look for it and make his own chances, this is not one of Benteke's strong points even when he's in form.

Sorloth may not be the answer, but I can't for the life of me see that he could be any worse, unless he can't defend corners.

Time for SÝrloth up front.

Let's mix it up just a little and put Tekkers on the bench so he has something to prove when he comes on with 20 mins left...

It's way beyond confidence, it's an application thing. Last week vs spurs if the ball weren't on his head he wasn't moving for it.

I've been thinking that most of season. Unless the ball is coming within few inches of him....... he just doesn't seem to move

If we had a Sakho Tomkins partnership in the centre of defence I would be confident we could limit them to 0 or 1 goal, and thus maybe nick a win or a draw.

Without him we will almost certainly concede.

Sakho makes the difference at the back, Cabaye in midfield and wilf in attack. It's a real ****** that we none of the three

Agreed. Our 3 most important players arguably.

Sorloth has pace and energy he needs to play off Benteke not wide, defending is not his game as he showed v Spurs.

The time is very much right for a punt, in theory we are expected to lose against Man U and Chelsea, at least with Sorloth there is a bit of energy, and physic that might get something especially if we can find some pace down both wings (perhaps PVA further forward?) Benteke hasn't pushed on from scoring against Leicester, and we saw against Watford it was the hunger of Sako that got a goal, just can't see that sort of thing from Benteke.

We can't keep Benteke in because of his past record, he's had all season, and squandered too many chances. I'd love to be proven wrong, but so much about his demeanour this season looks off. If Sorloth has been bought for the championship then the management should come clean about it and we can then stop wasting our time.
