Hodgson has given him too much time and as a consequence the team are suffering. Batshuayi has to start the next Premier game.
The ball Wilf put across about 3 yards from goal in the second half was crying out to be touched in

Benteke was just outside the 6 yard box from the moment Wilf got the ball, and never moved an inch.

To use the obvious example, Murray would have scored from that cross

Is that the same Wilf who nearly always pulls it back in that situation?

Yes, let’s sack a £32m footballer.

We’ll just get the money back off of that tree.

movement is really poor. Just see the difference when Batshuayi came on suddenly there defence had something to worry about.

Unfair to compare the. Two to be fair, Michy is a class player who will leave back to one of the big boys in be summer. Problem with Benteke is that he cost us a lot of money and gets paid a lot, people have the right to question his lack of goals etc. Feels like the time will come and he will start smashing them in but we've been saying that for a while. He does get in the right position at times, maybe we just don't play to his strengths?! See out the end of the season and let's see what happens, need to stick with big Ben.

Perhaps if a certain Scottish midfielder could pass a ball 6 yards to his right Benteke would have scored at least 2 goals.

Just a thought.

Comparing him to a Chelsea loanee isn't helpful for many reasons, not least cos they are very different players.. how many headers and how much link up play was Michy involved in?
I remember thinking last season that it's only a matter of time before he scores but in reality he's scored 3 in a season and a half. Can we afford to wait? Because in that time he has missed a number of sitters and left us in the bottom half.

Well this is the million dollar question . We are far too close to the drop for comfort. Do we give a player who is at best misfiring and only scored 3 in a season and a half and is past it ,and clearly not fit for the job ,or should we utilise the proven loan player and Wickham. 30 million going to waste by not getting in the side , is preferable to losing 3 times that amount if we get relegated. Risking our survival to play benteke just because he is a 30 mil signing is lunacy . He's had plenty of our patience , its not working, so he should not be first choice. He wouldn't be in any other side with a record like his .

Three goals in a season and a half doesn't make him a scapegoat. It makes him an underperforming over paid striker.

Is it unfair to compare? They both cost about the same and if anything Benteke has the bigger reputation. I am amazed that a striker who has scored 3 goals in 2 years gets so much support. All kinds of excuses get made for him but the simple fact is he doesn't score anymore and provides very little in way of team play.

All you got to do is look at videos of some of Murray’s goals to see the movement he makes then compare that to benteke receiving his “bad” crosses.

Wickham is a proven 5 goal a season player. Not much better than the current Benteke let alone what we know he can do.

These big lump strikers haven't historically scored lots of goals for us. When they've worked for Palace it-s been in a two.

You’re the same age as me so how the hell can you forget the goal scoring exploits of a certain Trevor aylott .
