Benteke’s staying. For the summer, at least.

Various reports are coming out that Christian Benteke’s agent, Kismet Eris, has said that Benteke will be staying at the Villa for this summer.
So why am I tempted to say “no xxxx, Sherlock”?

We all detest agents, but I think Eris has actually performed exactly as is required, even though I’d have all football agents put up against a wall and shot for the crime of helping to destroy the game.
That’s only a joke, but these agents really do annoy me in the same way employment agencies do.
They’re just leeches, in my opinion.

Anyway, that’s my little rant out of the way.

So what are we actually learning here?
Quite simply nothing, as who’s going to pay serious money for a player who won’t be back for months?
Well, ok we did with Downing, but it’s very rare.

It’s just stating the obvious.
Although, if Benteke makes the quick comeback that he’s predicting and gets off to a good start Eris will probably be angling for a move again.

And if that was to happen, would we be able to hold on to him in the January window?
Maybe.
But next summer?
Doubtful in my opinion.

    Doesn’t matter, I can see moaning from someone no matter who takes us over. We don’t get an owner worth 10 billion+, he won’t be worth enough, despite he could know so much about how to run a football club. If he’s an incredibly rich man, or consortium of rich people, they won’t know how to run the team. If 100m+ isn’t spent, we have no ambition, if 100m+ is spent, we’re just trying to buy our way to the top. It’s not just these billionaire’s who are going to have the problems… Some fans won’t be happy no matter what.

      Ha ha so true Andrew. I’m in the buy our way to the top I want jam today. Funnily enough that’s football fans at any club. My mate who’s a utd fan wanted fergie to go even when they win the treble ffs. He dosnt rate him at all especially in Europe. He is a st holder and yes he lives in Manchester which is a rarity.

        I’m in the, go the Liverpool way. Get the right manager. Get the players he wants be it a 5m player, 1m player or 25m player. No need to spend just to spend.

        But yeah, Arsenal fans and Wenger are an obvious on how different fans who support the same club think.

    wots the latest bulshit 2b fed 2us gullible villians
    ??????????????????????????????????????

    i am really worried, no new players will risk coming to villa, knowing its only a matter of time b4 the manager leaves and new guy arrives, this is not only the issue i av, i don’t believe new owner is due anytime soon, which means no new players, because lerner won’t commit 2 short investing to protect his overall investment,

    so wots the latest bulshit

    sorry 2b a negative fan / but times ticking WC buys u alittle time, but secret deals are being done. soon all wots gonna be left is crap nobody wants. ps the current squads needs new players we all agree on this

    Hi all been on the broads for a week, I’m a nervous wreck, would go and pick the week their was a sailing regatta, them people are lunatics, and the language from the women bloody hell, I’ve been educated, learnt new words, not getting notifications on new posts ? Anyone know why, I’ve had to click on next to follow what’s going on, I like Gardener but not his brother, he’s got more about him in going forward, and as for the bomb squad I had an inkling that was going to happen when Lambert jetted off to USA, no new signings to come as well, think Robo gone walk about trying to get more rubbish rumours, mark you It looks like Oohah having fun now.
