Benteke release clause to be met by LFC

Reports on twitter from respected journalists (Tony Barret -Times/Dominic King-Mail, Echo also reporting it) that Liverpool are ready to meet Villa's release clause so as not to miss out on his signature.

Cant get on twitter on my PC in work but i promise the links are there. If I can find one i will edit article with it.

what do we think reds?

I am just interested in how we will set up.

I see Benteke as the lone front man with others supporting from wide or in behind.

Even when Sturridge is fit I don't really see us playing a straight front two. I think Sturridge would start wide of him or off of him.

Where Coutinho and Firmino fit in who will surely be starting the vast majority of games I am not sure at this point.

you dont even have to watch his "best of videos"

try watching a few match videos of him, the ones that show all his touches, i.e. the semi final vs Liverpool.

where you will see he concedes a lot of possession, because while winning the aerial duel he fails to control the high balls properly..

try comparing it to the number of times he loses possession when its played to his feet.

Its funny that someone who has taken the time to watch a few videos, and read a few articles from more knowledgeable sources gets ridiculed because they can see beyond the stereotype.

better to stick with the herd mentality view of him, there's more people with that view (who haven't watched him or done any research) so it must be right!!!
