Very few people wanted him gone, but at the time some could see a logic to it.

We had 5 strikers on the books at the time: Wickham, Bamford, Murray, Gayle & Campbell.

No one in their right mind would have put Campbell ahead of Murray but there was a case for the rest* and the fact we were being offered a decent fee for a striker who you expected to be in the wain there was some sense to it.

I'll not start claiming most people were happy with him leaving, just that some could understand it.

Also bear in mind that in the last 5 years we have made a profit on the following players only:

Bolasie, Gayle, Murray, Jedinak & Mandanda**

Fans expect us to balance the books by selling off the likes of Mutch and Lee. That isn't going to happen. Nobody wants them. You can only make money on the players other teams actually want.

* I know Bamford was unbelievably shit and Wickham is a crock, but try to look at it without your 20-20 hindsight

** I believe there as a minor profit there

Time makes you think differently and hindsight sight is of course a wonderful thing and something that all fans have (or remember having )

We all knew he was better than Campbell and Gayle and Wickham I will give you but surely our scouting network should have seen enough of Bamford to see he was a pile of poop

Lucky goal due to crap goalkeeping after a ref's mistake.

I'll give you a caveat there, Bamford wasn't playing every minute before Murray was sold. I can't recall if it was through injury or if Pardew didn't fancy him by that stage already.

If he was giving up on Bamford by that stage then you would have to would have to wonder why he would sell Murray

Murray was no way good enough for us at that time. Neither was Gayle. Neither was Jedinak.

At that point in time we needed better than Glenn Murray. Benteke is better in every department, unfortunately the rest of the team just cannot provide him with the service he needs.

Watch how effective Benteke was for Villa. All down to excellent service provided from all over the pitch. At Palace this season he has not been the focal point. We have a genuine World Class striker but don't utilise his play in our attacks, beyond crazy.

Gayle will never be a Premiership starter because he doesn't work hard enough without the ball. Doesn't make runs...
