    Chairman somewhere wakes up in cold sweat at 3am following relegation nightmare.

    Shit, we need goals!

    Now for someone desperate enough to jump in the race and gazump Palace with a 40M bid. Watch!

    Happy with 27+5 Good result for the club we get back pretty much all of what we spent 12 months ago, hopefully we can now go out and sign a LB

    It is a good sale that means we get out of a very bad purchase last summer at no cost. A bad purchase in terms of the price we paid and the type of player Benteke is. Last summer we essentially overpaid £10m and subsequent player value inflation has covered that gap.

    Not a bad deal for either side to be honest. Benteke remains a very good striker, just one ill-suited for us.

    If he remains healthy, he may be among the PL scoring leaders this year.

    What if he scores against us?.... It's better than having someone who we won't use sat in the U23's squad...

    Conor Wickham was doing a very good poor man's impression of Benteke last season, if he hangs around on the edge of the box like he did for us he won't be that much of a success.

    Anyhow wouldn't be surprised if we now go out and buy someone, don't buy that he is happy with Moreno and yet is super keen on sticking Milner in that position as soon as possible.

    Yeah. I think you're right. But I would still be happy with winning 4-3 against palace.

    Good deal for both us and them. They won't get any better than him and we almost get our money back. I hope he isn't too bitter but it is the right move for everyone. It's a shame but it just hasn't worked out.

    If it is you welcome back, if it is the hacker, could you hack into Mario's agents email and move his sale along, ;-)

    Can't help but think we may have sold out a bit cheap on this one but overall I'm happy - pretty much got our money back it seems.

    I just heard the cash register go kaching!

    We've suddenly hit a big surplus on sales over purchases.

    Amazing!

    Shame things didn't work out here for him, but I wish him good luck at Palace. Just not against us!

    Great news. We should be able to afford a LB now.

    To agree to this, Liverpool will be satisfied that the clauses will be met. I would imagine one would be linked to appearances, and another to Premier League survival.

    Damn good business to sell him for this much, since every man and his dog knew we wanted to get rid. Then again, Palace were in desperate need for a striker of his quality. Great transfer for both parties I'd say. Swapping Bolasie for Benteke makes a lot of sense for them.

    I'm actually putting Benteke in my fantasy footie team now, I think he'll score for fun in their system.

    By the way @Iluvatar, we agreed on £10 or £50? Can't remember.... too lazy to scroll back. I did £50 anyways on UNICEF. Receipt attached in the previous post.

    I was thinking the same but already have Aguero,Ibra and Vardy.I think Benteke will do really well for palace and may be all fired up by the time we play them in october.

    I'm on the Telegraph fantasy footie and you only get 50 million to spend on your team, at the minute Tekkers will be replacing Jermaine Defoe! That's how tight the budget is! You're right though, I can see him getting a hat trick on his debut.

    Benteke will have to buy his own Nivea from now on.
