Match Of The Day Praise Christian Benteke

Match Of The Day Praise Christian Benteke

Nice compliments on Match of the Day last night from the pundits about Christian Benteke.

Lawro said on the man mountain striker:

"Benteke has a bit of everything about him. He`s a big fella, he has lots of ability, is extremely strong on the ball, but he has more than that. His goal was a really, really good strike".

Benteke scoring

Adding, "He`s honest, can sort out a pass, he will run all day for you" and then on the back heeler to Weimann for the goal he said 'it was just absolutely brilliant." Finishing "you also can`t knock him over...!"

Too right, some have tried to knock our Tyson over, all have failed!

Benteke in action claret

And Alan Shearer said with a huge smile on his face "I think that is one of the best centre forward performances I`ve seen this season."

Adding, "It had everything from him. He was big, he ran the channels, scored two very good goals and set one up. It just had everything and he bullied the two centre halves. Great to see."

Another fine performance from the big man. Could be the best player to have donned a Villa shirt for many years. As PL says, his potential is scary. I keep having to remind myself that he's only 21!!

Don't remind yourself he's 21 Pundit..... he's 22 now.... birthday a few weeks ago. But brilliant, what a player we've snapped up here..... must be worth more than Bent by now... if not, very soon. Pity we are NOT SELLING......

Shame that MOTD did their best to suggest Liverpool should have had a penalty. " he is clearly pulling his shirt " Yes dear, he is pulling Clark's shirt too'

What are the odds of 2/3 Villa players being on the shortlist for PFA Young player of the year?

I have been fortunate to witness many outstanding Villa Park centre-forwards throughout the years. Tony Hateley, Andy Lochhead, Andy Gray, Peter Withe, immediately spring to mind. This young man, Christian Benteke, has the potential and ability to surpass them all in the Villa Park legend stakes. Hopefully PL can build a quality and successful team around him, a scenario that will ensure that Christian is happy and content to remain at Villa Park for many years to come.

Thats my hope too Glen I think some early success could be the key and our run in the League Cup is our best opportunity for many a year... If we can win it it will make all our young players hungrier for success, attract more players, maybe it might give Randy the itch to really push through PLs lofty plans and importantly it should help keep our players because they will remember that success and know we can do it again... Thats my hope anyway...

Like all Villa fans here I am so impressed with Benteke, however The fact that this Colossus striker has taken all the headlines, rather puts into the background of the rise of Weimann. For me he deserves as much credit as Benteke. He so reminds me of Gary Shaw and I can see no way back now for Gabby, unless as a impact player. He is certainly third choice now. As for Bent, think we should keep him till the summer, in case Benteke gets injured. I pray to God that doesn't happen, because neither does Bent posses half the creativity that Benteke does, I mean could you imagine Bent EVER having the forward thinking to make THAT back heel ? and without Benteke, Weimann is half the player. Shaw & Withe, Keegan & Toshack - they really could be that good. So come on you Villa boys lets give Wee Weimann the credit he deserves. It takes two to Tango and Tango we will all the way to Europe .... UTV

lets hope he keeps it up for the rest of the season. We need consistency in front of goal. He's also missed a hat full of great chances in earlier games, Hopefully he will remain in this consistent form going forward.
