Or put him back on the wing where he should be. Now Benteke has been slowly been brought back it will happen soon enough where we dont have to play two wingers up front.

Took my son to his first game this weekend, he might have been a bit to young as didn't watch much. He was more entertained with those around us than the game. Plus the performance wasn't the best and neither the match in general but that Sakho winner will live with me forever.

The main part of the game he happened to watch was when Sakho scored and he loved the noise and celebrating that followed. Cannot beat a last minute winner for your first game.

My Dad reminded me of my first game, a win against Sheffield United with Wright playing and I hope I can remember the Palace v Stoke win when my boys older.

...but it is an option, and the team would be able to cope with it now - and the 10 or so games WZ and AT have been playing up front is good experience for when they find themselves in those central areas.

I disagree, he is a decent player and when on form is very good. He is one of many players who has struggled to find their form and who knows why, maybe being played all pre-season at right wing back only to be replaced by Joel Ward for the first game, he also has had to play a more forward attacking role with Wilf being up front. When Benteke gets back in the team, it will allow him to go back to where he did so well last seaon, on the wing where he can run and cut in without 2 or more players on him.

I really don't understand the negativity about Townsend. Some of you are a bit fickle to put it mildly. Look back at recent player ratings and reviews - he was some people's MOTM against Chelsea and other comments are stuff like bright, never stopped running, put in a shift, etc. etc. Yes, Saturday wasn't his finest hour, but he created the first goal (whether you think the ball was a bad one or not), made some important challenges and again, never stopped running. I'd like to see more end product, we all would, but as far as commitment and body language go, you cannot criticise him for effort.

Well said. It was not one of his best games on Saturday but every time it did not work out, there he was again having another go. It is that kind of attitude that will keep us up.

And that's a big benefit he brings to the team. Too many players - at Palace and elsewhere - go awol after a couple of mistakes. Don't make themselves available for a pass and don't go to support teammates under pressure.

True about effort Al, I would never criticise him for that. And he can play well, but usually doesn't unfortunately. It's a game of opinions of course, fortunately. The BBC rated him but for me he was a waste of space. It is also true there is no alternative as we have zero cover of any use on the bench.

I watched a lot of him at Tottenham so I have previous for not rating him.He did well at Newcastle but I've seen the Tottenham player far too often for us.I'm not fickle from game to game,I just don't think he produces enough often enough.When Zaha was out of the team he was our main creative outlet and we never looked like scoring in a million years other than the Burnley game.He was great against Chelsea,but how many performances has he had like that in a Palace shirt? 3?He is streets ahead of what we have in reserve though.
