Benteke. its a big no from me. RK andSW get paid for this job not me but i know what i see. he isn't good enough i am sorry there have to be better options out there . watch him before the reds bought him and watched him since. thetes a reason only palace wanted him and not a bigger club.

{Ed025's Note - im with you steve..

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi Steve don't believe all the paper rubbish mate we will get better than that have no fear cheers GuernseyBlue.

I think ed025 will back me up here but I think we have to have a crack at getting in Chicharito!

{Ed025's Note - i am a big fan dunc i must admit, i just think we may be missing a physical presence up front so i would prefer a giroud type at this time mate..

I hope so . we have gone forward at such a pace i feel this would be a backwards step . i can't say i have actually seen this fella play at pace we are obviously going for it big time so let's at least get someone a better quality in while we can.

Interesting stat: Benteke has scored 17 league goals against Liverpool, United, City, Chelsea and Arsenal.
Lukaku managed 14.
Benteke also scored more goals against Liverpool at Anfield than he did when playing for them, take into consideration the teams that they have both played for and you can't argue with his record.
We have failed to win against the so called bigger clubs away due to our one and only threat not being upto the job, Benteke gets goals and that's against both the top teams and lesser teams but most importantly he does it home and away. You can call him lazy but then so was Lukaku but fans still put up with that as well as his constant I want better jibes, we need multiple threats as we have been reliant on one mans goals for too long, if we get Benteke we have a target man, with Sandro a flair man and Rooney a wiser man, add to that the midfielder behind them and we have a plan A, B and C for a change.

You read my mind bluegray87. I was sitting on the fence with the Benteke but I think your post has made my mind up for me. Your post are my exact thoughts on it. Options is what we need and if we sign Benteke even though I can't say I'd be 100% for it. It would be another option up front that we could have which would only benefit the team.

RK and SW know best so I'm needless to say I'd be happy if he came to join the revolution. We were happy enough with Lukaku getting the goals. Why not Benteke?

With you two posters, a lot are writing Benteke off, he never got the service across the park from the flanks, they always play through the middle, we have the players to adapt to that but if you are going for a big centre forward to meet crosses, Benteke is not as bad as some make out and would get goals if given a decent run and assists.

Benteke is excellent in the air, I remeber him scoring a beauty against us for Crystal Palace last season and to be fair 17 goals in 36 games for palace is a very good return he also scored 9 in 15 appearances for The RS the year before and they didn't play to his strengths. I would not mind if we signed him, based on those stats he is a goalscorer and we need as many of those as we can get. My main concern is palace paid £27 million for him so his price will almost certainly be around the £35 million mark which I think would be too much.

£35mill for a recognised Premiership goalscorer who is still only 26 years old is a good price, its a third of what we have just received for you know who, NBTB I am not his biggest fan but his record speaks for itself and that is what our manager will be looking at, he is a handful in the opposition box but also good to have in your own box when defending, on age alone and were we are in our rebirth I would have him over Giroud.
A top 2 of Sandro and Benteke with Rooney behind is a nice thought add to that all these 3 can play as a lone striker offering different attacking options, and as we have touched on NBTB that is what we have lacked options and game changers.
Benteke, Sigurdsson and a punt on Adama Traore and we should be sorted for attacking options. We then have Schneids, Gana and Gaz Baz and Jimmy Mac if he stays as our central defensive cover, I feel then we just need a LB as cover and we are in good shape squad wise for next season.
