Do we really believe that Levy will spend the cash on a striker?

Piatek’s hold up play isn’t his strength. This would be the wrong fit for Joseball.

Benteke of 3 years ago was a beast. Benteke now is a broken man who looks scared when he gets a chance. If you want a plan C then I guess fair enough if he cost less than 8 million, but he is done as a top flight player imo.

I would love us to sign Cavani but I dot see that happening. Can’t think of any other decent established power forwards available.

Benteke signing will be up there with Louis Saha and Ryan Nelson desperation.

Benteke has 4 goals in the last 3 seasons

I would, and I cant emphasise this enough, rather give parrott that game time than sign striker who is just there to make up the numbers.

Benteke

Problem:
A team low on confidence and quality.

Solution:
Buy a striker low on confidence and quality.

Hard to disagree with the above.
Tekkers has been woeful for us the past two seasons but i somehow(!) still believe there's a player in there somewhere.
Our style of 'sit deep and counter' doesn't seem to suit him and there's no doubt that he'd receive far better service at a top club ie Spurs.
That said, when he has had a clear chance he ultimately fooks it up! Confidence maybe? I'll give him the benefit.

(It would be good to get him off our books though as he's on £100k+ p/w............cough cough!)

Calm it Hengy

Feed the Bentek and he will score

Has to be Piatek...

Has a great goalscoring record generally..

Scores goals with either foot... good in the air... a very physical striker... ideal for the premier league..

At €30m... got to be worth a punt.. especially given our situation..

I don’t t mind a bit of capitalism, but when Benteke has been earning that much money - for the talent he does(n’t) have, it does make you wonder

Benteke stinks of Jose

Loves a target man (Drogba, Ibra, Milito)

By generally do you mean last season and then 1 season in the polish league?

Piatek

Mrs brother is Polish and he rates him, he watches any Polish player abroad

I played against Benteke whilst I was about 13, he was only 10 and still streets ahead of anything on the pitch.

posted on 13/1/20

Has to be Fellaini. Can play striker , dm , rb ,cb and tree.

posted on 13/1/20

Remember Gregorz Rasiak?

I'd rather we made no signings than made a panic signing who come the summer won't be needed.

I think if you're spurs / Levy you write this season off, sadly, and put together a transfer plan for the summer that actually has some planning behind it.

No lies in 2020 please

Palace would rather sign Cenk Tosun and play him rather than Benteke, I think that tells you a lot.
