John Carew too. Slightly held back by inuries but what a player. His goals to games started ratio was pretty well 1 in 2 for a couple of years.

Yep agreed Benteke and Carew were great.

I still find Benteke’s career so strange. He was bloody brilliant for us, how he ended up as a bit of an also ram is bizarre.

He signed for a team that didn’t at the time cross the ball, he was made for Chelsea or Man Utd…just got lost at Liverpool

Loved John Carew. That was a great bit of business swapping Baros for him. That was a time when teams hated conceding set pieces around their own box against us.

Benteke’s first season...I thought we had the next Didier Drogba. He was awesome.

I was quite an avid follower of foreign football at the time, and the signing of Carew got me so excited that I immediately bagged a half-season ticket for the first time since '91/92.

Benteke would have been a perfect replacement for Drogba.
Although they had Lukaku, at the time Benteke was better.

I could never get my head round why Chelsea didn’t sign Benteke after Drogba left. He was the most certain replacement they could have found. He would have slotted in to their system perfectly.

What about Lewandowski up front?  He’d do a job would he not?
🤣

If some are writing off Coutinho at 29 god knows what they'd think of Lewandowski.

Jo Aribo being linked on the gossip page. We probably should have signed him when we were in the Championship but not sure about now. Talented player though.

I suppose Suarez would offer a bit more bite to our often toothless attack.

I'll add him to our list of targets

Left Back
Calvin Bassey
Aaron Hickey

Central Defender
Joe Gomez
Duje Ćaleta-Car

Midfielders
Boubacar Kamara
Kalvin Phillips
Yves Bissouma
Joe Aribo

Strikers
Luis Suarez
Robert Lewandowski
Jonathan David

I think we might miss out on a couple of them

Gomez feels an obvious one now with Konsa out for most of next season.

Based on absolutely nothing, I’ve a feeling something has been done regarding Phillips.

It is a shame if Konsa's injury is a bad one as he was one of the players Steven had wanted to sell to get some money for.

Cant find anything other than him maybe needing a scan and doubtful for the last 2 games?

Where’s that snippet of information come from?
