Yeah. There's muscles there which aren't yet up to the strain of intensive training. I'd be surprised if we saw him on the pitch before QPR at end of October. Would be a nice surprise though.

 

Nonsense, end of October!!! He's back in full training. Full training means exactly what it says. He'll make sub appearances. He'll come on against Chelsea or City I'd imagine. Before he gets called up by the national side. 

 

 

Yes he is back in full training but that is a world away from being fully fit or match fit, he has had no pre-season.

 

He is a way off yet.

Yes he's off full match fitness. But it's not like he's just back to any type of training. He's back in full training now and he will be fit enough given that to make sub appearances before end of October. That's 6 weeks away. He's not a winger.

 

Put on for final 15 mins to hold up the ball is very much what I can see happening, or more likely to try get a goal against City. 

 

Belgium will play him, no chance they won't. So when he's back - barring a setback -  he will certainly feature for Everton game.

The good thing about him being back, is we don't have to rush him with the points we have on board. Think if we didn't have many points, many would say bring him back alot sooner.

I really think we should treat this tentatively.  We rushed him back last season and he was half the player he was the season before.

 

We're doing well at the moment and we have the luxury of not having to rush him back.  I'd play him in a couple of behind closed doors friendlies before even introducing him as a sub in a competitive match, where a bad first touch can lead to the opponents scoring a goal - such is the brutality of the PL.

 

We should get him back and firing on all cylinders, whether that's October or even November.  Yes we all want to see him smashing in goals left, right and center, but the season is much longer than a 4-6 week period.  We could have him in peak condition by the start of the Xmas period and that's when we need him most, when the going gets tough.

 

But I can't wait to see him perform in our new look squad, he can concentrate on his own game, rather than trying to do too much.

We're doing alright, but I'll feel a darned sight happier when he and Kozak are at least available. Injury now to either Gabby or Weimann would severely stretch us.

Gonna be glad to see him back but he should earn his place like everyone else

Something like this, or only poor performance will get you dropped. Sounds ridiculously common sense, I want to see every player fighting for every minute like their lives depend on it.

He's not a winger no, but his best trick is receiving the ball with back to goal and twisting and turning and powering his way past a terrified defender. We could see when we rushed him back last season that it might take a bit of time for him to get back to that stage, but after a couple of weeks I expect to see him give 15/20 minutes. A month before he's starting.

IMO of course.

We seem so much more of a threat from set pieces so far this season and if you add Benteke into that its going cause so much problems to teams, can't wait for the beast to return!

Grounds for gross misconduct right there, sort him out Lambo, you push over.

No wonder we've been shit for the last 2 years. With this debauchery going on, on a day to day basis.

I bet kars-hole and vulvahouse are responsible for this.

Benteke out!

Agreed.

 

We rushed him back last season and it didn't turn out so well at first. 

 

Given our good form, we absolutely need to make sure he's fully fit and relatively sharp before starting him.
