It wouldn’t just be that he’s dogshit, nor that it’s the board going cheap and nasty again but also that he’d suggest we’d play pure caveman football...

I’m surprised at the amount of disrespect Benteke gets. I’m not saying we should get him, he’s a player that has lost all his confidence in the past 2 seasons.
But he did score 65 goals in his first 5 seasons across 3 teams in the premier league.
People saying he has no ability and comparing him to the likes of Rasiak is quite ridiculous.
He’s completely finished as a footballer. Have you watched him at all for Palace over the past couple of seasons?

Rasiak comparisons are perfectly valid.

The ONLY decent thing about getting Benteke is we could sing the Benteke song to the Lion Sleeps Tonight.

This thread is like the complete opposite of the one from the 2016 winter window

Ally gold gave him a mention in an article this morning as an alternative to Piatek. Would be hilariously sad.

Jose likes a battering ram type CF and Benteke was that type in his villa days. Doubt he could get back to those days as he has been awful for a long time now.
Wouldn’t be overly surprised if this happened on deadline day as a scrapping the barrel desperation cheap option

I know I’ll get shot down for this, but if it was Piatek for 30m or Benteke for a 6 month loan, I would take Benteke.
He has 4 goals in his last 61 league games. Only 1 goal in his last 31 league games which covers a season and a half. Any worse and he'd be completely useless.

You just know he'll be holding up Spurs shirt on 1/31. Desperate times as far as a striker is concerned.
