We need a hero?

Well, after a lot of pub talk, will he go, wont he go, we`ve finally had the confirmation that ‘The Beast` Benteke has slapped in a transfer request and asked to leave. Personally, I think his agent has misadvised the guy and another 12 months at VP would have stood him in good stead for the future especially as he is only a young man and learning his trade with us before moving to (it pains me to say this as I feel we are still) a ‘bigger club` who can offer him Champions league footie. Also with the confirmation that Darren Bent will also be leaving, the main question is who are we going to replace these guys with? Pretty big boots to fill if you ask me!

Now, I was well chuffed that we signed Andi Weimann up again and yes Gabby played his way back into form at the end of the season as well. We signed the Danish lad as well, but not proven (like Benteke last season) so we can`t really put too much pressure on the lad. So this leads us to askĀ…..well who next?

Who would people like to see come in, any suggestions? I`d personally like to see Lambert challenge the players we have to fill the no.9 shirt and lead the line next season but, I also do believe if we can get £25m plus for both players then I`d like to see 1 maybe 2 strikers brought in. Now, I thought we would have the same front 3/4 players as last year and strengthen the back so I have no real clue who we should go for, maybe Loic Remy (wages a stumbling block?), someone from abroad? Di Santo on a free after his release from Wigan and I think still fairly young but broke into the Argentina squad last year.

Whatever the future holds, players will come, players will go and we have to accept that, its not ideal but who will be our new hero next season?

Have faith and remember….

Proud history, bright future
