Goal aside he was pretty bad yesterday. He can hold the ball up, but isn't capable of a quick accurate pass. 

 

He is a middle table striker who can feed off scraps in the box and crosses (both goals scored came from balls out wide)

 

Maybe that's what we are.

Not really he's completely the wrong player as evidenced by our turdulent play

Actually it did make you look like a massive quim, because it proved again that he is a quality player. By your measure, almost all of our players look like wrong players at the moment because almost all of them are playing in the wrong position, not allowed or enabled to play to their strengths, or are just wrong.

He's a quality player for a shit team that knows how to use him.

 

We are a shit team that doesn't know how to use him

He would be a beast if (a) he was actually mobile and worried defenders with his movement, and/or (b ) he played in a team that had a single solitary clue about how to provide service to its strikers.

He is mobile. Very actually. But not enough to run on to his own flick ons - perhaps that's what you mean. Watch his movement.

Eey-ore!

 

He looks like a big donkey at present but I am confident a decent manager could use him effectively.

I am sure Ings could do better if played in his natural position and think he's done ok so far.

To sum up,we've got a few decent players,but a useless manager.

I don't think he looks like a donkey at all.  He looks like a very decent player who is getting no support whatsoever.  

Yep. In the 5 league matches he's played he's only had players in around supporting him for the first 45 minutes at Arsenal. Every other match there's been no one near him.

 

It seems like Rodgers wants him to win the ball in the air with his back to goal, run onto his own flick on beat a couple of players and put it in the top corner.

I can see the thinking as that is basically what was expected of Suarez.

it tended not to be lumped 60 yards at Suarez through

 

Absolutely, it was but tongue in cheek.

 

I think he (Benteke) could be great for us, but at the moment he isn't being given a chance. Currently the team plan seems to be either score from a corner, or score a worldy.

Sounds like the strikers we used to have.

We paid too much for him, absolutely. But we are not even remotely getting the best out of him. Even Timmy Sherwood was able to use him properly, Rodgers can't even manage that much. Benteke will come good once Sturridge is back and playing alongside him and more importantly, when we get rid off Brendan and bring in a manager who knows how to use him effectively.

New manager, proper deep lying playmaker and a winger who can cross and we'll smash 80% of the teams in this division with Benteke leading the line. Shame its a bit late for that.

 

Sounds like 5th place - maybe a cup run every few years.

I'd hate to see you're opinion of him when he doesn't score over head bicycle kicks against one of the best keepers in the world.
