No, Zaha is leaving and doesn't play in his position anyway. The Chelsea player whose name I can't be arsed to spell doesn't play for them anymore. So he's second choice behind Wickham.

Well in that case, we've no chance of getting him anyway then have we/

So your silly suggestion is a non-starter.

Well, bearing in mind they're considering an offer from China, yes we do. Now calm down, petal.

Oh right - An offer from China or a loan deal and we pay some of his wages?

Hmmmm I wonder which one Palace would consider?

It doesn't really matter what Palace want if he doesn't want to go there. If they find someone willing to pay a fee and all of his wages, and Benteke wants to go, then he will go. I don't think Villa should be offering on those terms.

If he doesn't go for a fee, Palace would probably rather get at least some of his wages off the books and may be willing to loan him and pay some of his salary.

In those circumstances, it wouldn't be much of a gamble. Might as well try to see if he's like he used to be once he puts on a Villa shirt. If he isn't, he goes back to Palace at the end of his loan. Not the end of the world.

He's not 4th choice, he's ahead of Ayew and Wickham and they don't play Zaha as a proper CF. I probably wouldn't have him back but describing him as 4th choice CF is simply wrong.

Sorry Rain Man

He's shit - Is that any better for you?

If you weren't wrong so often I wouldn't have to keep correcting you.

Only me?

You stalk me for some bizarre reason best known to yourself, ever since I went out of my way to try to answer a question you posted about loan deals.

You can split hairs on whether Tuanzebe had one good season or two and you can split hairs whether Benteke is 3rd or 4th choice does it really matter or are you just diving in to create conflict?

I like how in your world knowing the correct answer seems to be a bad thing. And by stalking you, you mean 3 times in 4 months.

You don't know the correct answer though - You split hairs over the most trivial, pedantic of things that has no bearing on the overall discussion.  And to me only.  Have you "corrected" anyone else in the past 3 months?

I really don't know what's wrong with you or where your obsession stems from but you will be ignored from now on.

All this bickering.  Anyone would think there's no football on.
