    Benteke is a top player for the right club. He will get you goals if you play to his strengths.
    He will score 20+ goals for CP.
    Im just glad we did not sell him to chelsea or everton, he would have made them very very strong.

    I say he be with us come september, @Iluvatar said he won't. Whoever loses donate to a charity of the anyone's choice. So I left it to the winner to choose the cause, but on a condition of must be for children. These are innocent souls.... I just can't recall how much.

    Great....

    If that effects the strengths of 4 or 5 players around him is it worth it? I'd rather rely on the strengths of Coutinho than Benteke. His immobile attacking was quite easy to defend against if I'm honest.

    He wasn't good enough and never will be, even if he scores a hatful against us, still won't change my view.

    Yes I agree, although do you not think he could turn Palace into being very strong - they were in the top 6 early on in the season and then fell apart. Completely ripped us to shreds too. So whilst yes Chavksi or Bitters would have been bad, I dont think selling to CP completely lets us off the hook. They could be a really difficult opponent this season now.

    Nah we'll beat them..... They probably get relegated. Pardew also have a shelf life. He has one very good season and then fall flat the next. They had a pretty decent run till the tail end of last season, foresee that to continue. Let's not forget their forward uses pace and strength to attack, and Benteke uses none of those two.

    You're not luring me into a bet to recoup your money :J

    Not so sure Ed - they were bossing it for a time last season and if they find that again, they were real bullies on the field.

    Alan Pardew has been in touch with Christian Benteke since the beginning of this year. The striker only wanted the Palace move. #CPFC #LFC

    Doesn't that amount to tapping up? Not that i'm bothered in this case except for Pardew getting a hefty fine.

    I think the loss of bolasie is a bigger loss for palace than benteke is a gain,his mobility is poor and could find himself lost in games depending on how he is used,bolasie would've been a good threat with benteke but now not too sure anyway he's theirs now so happy days.

    I don't know why, I kind of feel a bit sorry for Benteke, he did try his best to play to his ability, although he couldn't fit in Klopp's style of play. He is nice personality, it just wasn't to be in his destiny to shine at LFC. At least, he went on a nice preseason trip to California.

    I wish Benteke of luck at Crystal Palace except against LFC.

    I agree. It wasn't his fault that BR had decided that he was the man to take us to the next level. And for him - going from a club like Villa (managed by dear old Tactics Tim) to us was a no brainer.
    He clearly put in the effort and even when it became evident that he was out of favour, he still tried and didn't cause any problems and the goals he did score were certainly useful last season.

    All the best, Benny boy. Just don't you dare put any goals in our net.

    Totally agree Maria.
    Don't think he suited us but he didn't go on a major sulk and tried his best even if it wasn't up to scratch.
    That goal manure is probably one of the best finishes I can remember against them

    He will be fine there as long as he doesn't get into any 1v1 situations with the keeper.

    Collymore said to whip early cross into the box for him and he will score loads. I guess Mr. Collymore wasn't paying attention in our games last season then? If Benteke does get into position quick enough, he would not have been sent packing today.

    I think the selling club is the last to know these days when it comes to transfers. No point for a club to chase a player if the player isn't interested, so the price seems to be the last thing that's negotiated.

    I guess it's not exactly illegal either, if you have a third party (agency) doing all the ground work, since they're not employed by the clubs.

    Well, we've done really well to get our money back considering how hopeless he was last season.All the best Christian, simply not good enough for LFC.

    As for the big lock, my money's on Hope.

    Well he has officially signed on a four year contract.

    There goes possibly our most unprofessionally scouted and ill advised signing of all time given the price tag. It's just a miracle we managed to make so much for him.

    I mean at least with Andy Carroll we got that brace against Man City and a comedy ponytail.
