Benat of Real Betis anyone?

There is only one player I feel we should not miss out on, after watching Modric flee to Real Madrid, I think we should look no further than Benat of Real Betis.

He is a deep lying playmaker and very good with the ball, please this is not a football manager wish, but the answer to Roman`s desire is play from defence to midfield with guile and creativity that will transit it to mazarcar.

To be honest Mikel and Ramires are very good players but lack the creativity, Benat will give us the creativity to transit to attacking midfielders with much pace, minus our striking position, this is one area we need to resolve, until we resolve this area, in my opinion I don't think we can achieve Roman`s desire with Mikel and Rambo playing together.

I am with you on this, Benat is a very good player!I hope we sign him too...now that we are in the europa league,getting a world class striker in january might be difficult for us....I just hope the club gets it right,A striker and a deeplying playmaker,then we r okay.....formally,its a sad thing but welcome to thursday night football
Hazard11
Ohhh FFS another player noone has ever fkin seen but now the entire website is going to be getting boners over this guy. this is gonna be worse than those fekin other rumours
Humza_96
benat is a very talented player we need a deep midfielder who can pass the ball....our midfield of rami and mikel is slow and poor....get him along with koko of athelico madrid would be a great team if we get both of them....we need to change our midfield we blame torres for his lack of goals in the front but our midfield has to be also to be blame for that...
shlok27
Jordy Clasie of Feyernord is another potential target.
traykidd
Ever Banega of Valencia is the perfect man for our midfield. In my opinion he is the 3rd best central midfield, behind xavi and pirlo.
EliteBlue
Yeah, I also mentioned Benat some weeks back. He is a quality deeplying playmaker, City are already after him. He played in place of Alonso for Spain in their last friendly, he is real quality. But i think Banega will suit us better due to his physicality and defensive ability. Banega combines physicality with creativity, goals and skills..... perfect player. Am not really sure of Benat defensively but i really like him.
SameX
Yes for Benat..He can be a star.. Banega is too injury prone.. I am a valencia fan.. He has creativity but he would not be good at defensive aspect.
Siva
Lol.....Football Manager folks!!!! smh.

@shlok27,so the midfielders are responsible for torres not scoring??....did they make him miss an open goal?,did they make his slip or fall like a pack of card when he is on the ball?,did they make him shoot straight at the goal keeper when the goal is at his mercy??...comon mate,our midfield might not be topnotch but we are creating bucketload of chances and our no9 is either fluffin them or is nowhere near the box
Ken4CFC
At risk of getting a slating for saying this, but has anyone else apart from me noticed Ramires passing has improved in recent games particularly since Rafa took over? His percentages must be upand haseven been trying decent through balls.. I agree we need another recruit (or recall Josh/KDB - however sounds like KDB is better higher up the pitch).. Never heard of Benat. Anyone care t elaborate more on him (numbers, age, buid, type of player etc etc etc)...
BlueKiwi
lol humza
BlueKiwi
@bluekiwi,i thought i was the only one who is noticin rami's improvement,thank God u do and i hope others will too
Ken4CFC
Rami has improved his passing no doubt about that, thats probably because his concentrating more on keeping his position than venturing forward,@Obinnio like your article but dont agree with your batching of mikel and Rami! seriously whats up with that! rami has been the only bright spot in that pivot ever since the season started, and mikel has been crap, so we definitely need some1 in his place. As for Benat am not to sure about him, only watched him once so ill reserve my judgement on him for now.
pego sama
@kencfc...i dont blame our three musketeers i blame our pivot...for me both of them are poor...mikel is slow he takes lot of time to pass the ball either his passing is backward or sidewards....rami has tremondous energy but when it comes to ball distribution he is poor....we should understand that chelsea cant depend on mata haz and oscar for free flowing football they need help from their deep midfield for that and thats why chelse need good deep lying midfielder who can boss the midfield and can allows us to play the style we wanna play in great effect...
shlok27
I haven't seen benat play at all, but I wanna ask fans who are truthful, between this benat dude and fellaini, who is better?
Desmondadonis
@shlok,am not denyin the fact that our pivot is poor but what has that got to do with torres fluffin almost every chance he gets??if torres had converted 40% of chances presented to him then rdm would be still be here.
Ken4CFC
If torres converted half of his chances, we'll still be in top of the Epl table and qualify as top of our group
Desmondadonis
would be a good signing...but dont know the price?? should be more than 20m i guess :-(
Blu_run
At swansea all we needed was a 2nd goal to kill the tie,then liverpool visited and again we needed that elusive 2nd goal to kill d game,at westbrom we need a goal or two to either draw or win the game,then city and fulham came visiting,a goal could have well sailed the tie in our favour,last weekend we lost to westham and yet again we needed that elusive 2nd goal to kill the game....where was our no9 in all of this games(includin CL)???....busy clearin corners i guess
Ken4CFC
@ken4 torres is a crap....the day he start scoring goals...the world wil come to an end....
shlok27
@Humza, if you have not seen him try and watch him, he is a very good midfielder, with good passing range, not transfer rumour, he is something of a late bloomer at 25 with a lot of experience, barca may likely beat them this weekend but use that opportunity to access him against a top side, he is very good, he pulled Real Madrid apart
Obinnio
@3nity, not a football manager things, if we must move forward we have to do what is best for our club
Obinnio
@ken4CFC we all know that FT9 have failed and midfielders is not responsible, we need another striker but this is another area we must sort out
Obinnio
@Desmondadonis, fellaini is more stronger but Benat will fit in more to the system we wants to play, Benat has a better passing Range than Fellaini and Holds up ball better and in a guile manner,He dribbles better and as well a goal scoring midfielder, Fellaini is just stronger and taller,but on a serious note it is like asking modric and fellaini who is more better, ofcourse you will take modric ahead of fellaini, I have not come here to hype him, but please do try and watch Barca vs Real Betis this weekend to see the class he brings
Obinnio
Guys are totally myopic in here .. Lets a new striker and see how things change. Most of the games we lost/drew, we played well but for our faulty striker things would have been different. I have never seen DM gets blamed for a team lack of scoring especially when we have high ball possessions but fail to convert them.. You can get xavi ,Iniesta if you want but as far as Torres is all we have, we are doomed to fail. Period!
TheIncrediblue
@obinnio,ma comment is a reply to a mate who partially accused the pivot for torres predicament....signing a striker(s) is our primary objective in january
Ken4CFC
@the incrediblue,i totally agree with u,even if we get the best cdm(s) in the world they would stil fail to revive torres
Ken4CFC
Pego sama =fooll of life.mikel is crap?you need to go and sleep and rest ur brain seriously.who sabi benat? Get fellaini.he can play alongside mikel or ramir.he is also PL Proven.get me fellaini,ba and bony and we are done with the january transfer window
obimikelisdbest
@ken4cfc,Obimikelisthebest- I totally am on same side with you guys. Blaming Mikel for Torres and our attacking Mid failures is laughable. Mikel and Ramires might not the best but they gave our team almost 72% possession against WHU especially in the first half.. Now tell me what Hazard ,Torres,Mata and co did with it.. Nada,nothing..
TheIncrediblue
@the incrediblue,i guess mikel is the new scapegoat since lampard is no longer available
