Didn't even make the bench for Belgium's 3-1 win over Bosnia & Herzegovina, ouch.

Met the big man last night in the Hilton in nicosia. Had zero time for my villa ramblings but had plenty of time to sign autographs and take photos bearing in mind it was 2am.

Made the overnight flight delay worthwhile.

How do they manage to pluck these players from obscurity and turn them into world class talent

great goal and much better than Martial goal

Yep, Benteke's was great technique, Martial's, albeit a smart finish, was mostly down to awful defending.

Think you meant Arsenal there, but agreed. Especially Arsenal. It's like they are making a concerted effort to not win the title.

Wenger probably thinks he was aware of Benteke when he was a kid and because he wasn't Arsenal quality then he never will be.

Better goal than Rooney's shinner overhead kick as this was perfect technique.

Saying that, he didn't do a lot apart from the goal, and 1 incredible goal doesn't mean a lot when you lose.

He wanted him but wanted him 12 months later then we came in and got him.

I think his refusal to come in for him this summer is more about Wenger and his refusal to accept he made a mistake.

Goalscoring won't be an issue for Arsenal this season, Giroud despite the critics already has 2 league goals and will get 15 comfortably, Alexis is taking a while to warm up but will get near enough 20, Walcott will get 10 +, Ramsey, Cazorla and Ozil will get about 15 between them so about 60 goals from that lot so I really don't think Benteke would make a huge issue for them e.g. scoring a third goal for them today in their 2-0 win over Stoke.

It's too simplistic, to me Arsenal's big problem over the last few years has been mentality and bottle in the big games which stops them winning the league. Next week's game is a great example, they've won once at Stamford Bridge in last 6 visits and have capitulated there last two seasons.

Can they go there next week, roll their sleeves up and grind out a win or a point which wouldn't be an awful result albeit with Chelsea in poor shape atm. That demands more than just signing a new striker as Liverpool signed him and aren't exactly winning every week.
