    It says so much when people overrate him to such a silly extent as to say "he's our best player" or "we'd be nowhere without him". Guarantee you, if you took Benzema and stuck 3-4 other seniors used to playing with him on the bench, we'd not lose any efficiency at all if there were ample substitute options. All it takes is casting your mind to what Real Madrid were achieving when we had hungry Vazquez, Isco, Kovacić, Morata and James rotating in for Benzema and Ronaldo against bottom 10 teams. Compare that time from 16/17 with what we have to rely on offensively right now. Difference is night and day.
    Do you mean just this season? Last season he was great with that big goal tally and obviously the seasons before being a key part in CL success and perfect for Ronaldo.

    Haven't actually watched any of your games this season except 10 min of the Celta game. What would your starting 11 be if there were no injuries?

    Any season. He genuinely had 2 seriously good years out of 10 at being a striker. If you factor in being a Ronaldo squire then sure, maybe another 2. But even the numbers don't support that. He barely managed 10 assists in those horrid 2 seasons before this last one and fucked so many chances to seal key ties embarrassingly (i.e. PSG) which all went forgotten because of one sodding run against Atletico and 2 keeper mistakes for which he gets credit for. Mad.

    Dude is not a shit player, but to talk him up as if he's something special and suggesting we should be grateful for what he does, which happens to be a bare minimum for a top European striker? Lmao.
    Seriously, who gives a shit about the big goal tally? Didn't Suarez score 25 goals last season? Why is he being talked up as being washed up pile of shit and Benzema who is wank against just about any top4 team and had one good game vs Ajax is getting the "but he's been your best player" treatment?

    You'll genuinely struggle to find vehement opposition to his sale among madridistas if he were to be sold and somebody like Dybala or even Kane were to fill the hole.

    Right now it's against any reason to not play him because of how little his teammates understand Jović and vice versa. But that profile of a striker was SORELY missed in Madrid ever since Higuain broke his back.

    BBC was the best suited attacking trio to win CLs. Even though MSN at their best were way better.

    good for him for scoring consistently, but let's not lose sight of the fact that he's a striker at real madrid. what else is he expected to do? i've heard some really absurd things about his status a lot recently.

    He didn't get a single good ball, could have easily scored 2 with some luck... very bad luck.

    Real Madrid are contemplating offering a new contract to Karim Benzema, as his current one ends in 2021.

    Los Blancos are eager to extend it until 2023 and also raise his salary, to adapt it to his current leader status within the team.
