He's a fantastic player. But, Damiao is going to be cheaper. I think we know that is probably the biggest "pro" in Levy's mind when it comes to the Benteke/Damiao debate.

True, but watching benteke for the last 12mths. How dud a lot of clubs miss that boat? Cause he was keeping lukaka out of the Belgium team last year.

How surprising. Also it does say a little about Damiao when he's the "cheap" option.

By the way, comparing nothing other than their performances against the US, Benteke (and Lukaku who I am insanely jealous of the Chavs over) looked a lot better than Damiao did.

When did Brazil play the USA?

belgium...


In the post I was replying to, the comparison was made between Benteke's performance against the USA with Damiao's performance against the USA (or at least that is how I read it).

Leandro has agreed terms he's seeing Sandro over weekend too. He will 100% be a Spurs player.
Been waiting for this since January. Here they come boys.

That is what I thought. Not a fair comparison IMO. Thought I don't think comparing any 1 performance against another is fair.

I would prefer Benteke over Leandro, but I think it would cost 30m for Benteke, which is twice the price of Leandro. We could get a creative mid for the difference.
