Everyone needs to be patient with regards to Benni. That includes management, supporters and the player himself. he has shown glimpses of his talent but he is still finding his feet. next year will be the one that decides his future with us. The option to go 433 with attacking full backs in Santon right, Ferguson left is now an option with Demba back and Cisse. I think Pardew is looking further ahead to next season with Benni. he wants him to learn and improve the aspects of his game which are not up to scratch ready for his return to his best in the attacking sense. I think he likes him but at present times his levels are still not right up there. Plus with Cheik away, the midfielders we put in like Cabaye/Perch/Guthrie do not really do the leg work and destructive work Cheik does so its harder to carry him. I do worry he'll leave and it would be a great shame but Pardew must always put the team first.
