    Additional strikers..

    How about Benteke at Villa.. he'd be worth a punt.. He's very strong and has a good finish and he's young.. He and Sturridge & Suarez would be a deadly combo upfront..

      • Now now Ron.. the cynicism there.. We actually have a high number of headed goals amongst teams in the top half..

        But, in addition to Benteke's aerial presence, he's FAST for a man his size. He is probably faster than Suarez in a straight dash, which isn't the case for a certain other big striker the cynics love..

        In his first season in the EPL, at age 21, he's got 19 goals, all of supreme quality, could (won't happen) go on a purple patch and come close to the Golden Boot, which the other striker will never do, and let's face it anyways, Chelsea / City and big spenders will be all over him..

        If we were to try for him, January would have been the time, now that time has come and gone and he's a fantastic striker with years of growing/maturing to come..
