One of our most frustrating failures ever . The 30 mil price tag seems ridiculous now , that plus his wages , have to make him the costliest mistake we have ever made ?

Didn’t he score against West Ham in jan? Not that it makes a huge difference

Totally. He needs wingers to get down the line and cross.

Benteke doesnt commit for anything unless he knows its 100% on, he doesnt gamble. Batsuayhi instantly looked more committed, yes they are different style players but it’s just something visually apparent.

We didn't play to his strengths at all. Either play two up front or get crosses into him, it's not rocket science ffs.

Managers are terrified of playing 4 in midfield nowadays because majority of teams all play 5

I think Benteke looked ok yesterday but as said his best strength is heading which we don’t use very often

To be honest I’m hoping China come calling in the Summer, time for a change.

He's a bench player now and it doesn't help we have to wingers that want to dribble the ball into the net and not cross a ball .

Wait til he scores the winner in a crucial 6 pointer. This thread will suddenly light up with everyone saying how much they love him. Just let him get on with it he’ll come good

Interesting. Ayew was only playing because Zaha was suspended.
So is Benteke only effective in a 4-4-2 partnered by a "proper" striker (rather than Wilf in a free & flexible role)?

And if so, can we play a formation with two strikers plus Wilf & Andros on the wings?
(Spoiler: Roy thinks "no")

not sure if anyone has ever mentioned it but compare and contrast with Murray. That said I still think Big Ben will come good. Just needs a goal

How long do we let him get on with it for? It’s been a season and a half now with very little return. After yesterday’s game it’s apparent to most people what our formation and best 11 should be, which means benteke as a bench option.

Posted this on ratings thread

Not often I take much notice of statistics , but it was interesting that Benteke had 21 touches ( way less than any other Palace player ) , 14 passes ( 50% accurate ) 2 shots ( 1 on target ) 0 tackles 0 fouls won 0 fouls conceded.
He is obviously not as good as Batshuayi with regards to movement , pace and skill but he is 6ft 4 and has a powerful physique - just wish he would put himself about more , he is like a gentle giant . Just not how I remember him at Villa .

He's got no edge to him, got to be sold in the summer if we can find anyone silly enough to pay half as much as we paid for him and is on here.

He was in the right place if Jimmy had squared the ball when it was so easy to. But I still agree he was disappointing again.
