Crystal Palace fans her in the Transfer Tavern are beginning to conjure up a lot of contrasting opinions and discussions are ongoing amongst the Eagles propping up our bar.
It’s been a horrendous start to the season for the Eagles as they occupy bottom position in the Premier League standings. Indeed, fans are starting to look on in anguish as nightmares of relegation enter their collective minds, for the second season in a row.
Star striker, Christian Benteke, has struggled to find his feet so far this season as he slumps to a disappointing 0 goals and has seriously struggled to get going during his second season in south London. Still, The Birmingham Mail reported that Antonio Conte may be looking to bring the star man to Stamford Bridge as a replacement for compatriot, Michy Batshuayi.
So, the future could yet be set to become bleaker as the bottom side look to be at risk form losing their last season’s top goalscorer with the fans pondering this in the pub.
Still, the Landlord here made the decision to raise a debate for the local fans to go about discussing the future of Benteke and, from what the results are telling us, it was a very close affair.
When questioned on the topic of the possible departure of the Belgian they hit back with 51% of people wanting the striker to stay at the club as they believe he can bring them forward. Perhaps that’s not overly surprising, though 49% actually wouldn’t mind seeing him depart.
That seems odd for a team in desperate need of goals, though it seems the former Liverpool and Aston Villa man has less than impressed many Palace fans.
So Palace fans, thoughts?
