To be fair, my criticism of Rondon's finishing is not based off his overall record, it was observations from seeing him miss clear chances.  The difference for me is if Gayle is 12 yards out and pulls the trigger you think "this is a goal" before he hits it.  It's not the same with rondon.  There were far too many 'head in hands' moments for someone I could call 'lethal' in front of goal.

Don't get me wrong, I still liked him and was sad to see him go (would also love to see him alongside Gayle), I just disagree that he is this lethal striker who we somehow just used wrong.  He's steady enough that youd expect ~10 goals a season from.

Can't displace a  dreadful Rodriguez in a Championship team. I like Gayle very much but he's not in Rondon's class or pedigree.

But early for the sherry isn't it?

I like Gayle very much but he's not in Rondon's class or pedigree. In terms of overall ability, agreed.

What is Rondon worth to Newcastle now,we should sell him and buy Gayle.
Say £15 mill for the big guy and we buy the little guy for say £10 mill?

Yes 100% agree. Problem is they won't pay 15 for Rondon and I wouldn't blame them because Gayle is better.

Can't see Newcastle wanting to pay £15M for Rondon or selling Gayle for £10M, more likely the other way round.

Gayles a better finisher than Rondon anyday,Rondon maybe be better as a sole target man,and is on good spell at the minute,anyway lets talk about this the end of the season,we will have the answer then

He basically said a goodbye to us fans on the day of the swap and has said a number of times since the swap that he wants to stay at Newcastle and be successful there.

referring back to my post a page ago, Rondon has more Premier League goals - why cant we have them both, if they go down?!

Not being awkward, just that pros normally roll out the "just trying to play each game and then I'm still contracted blah blah"
Not like them to actually state what they really mean

I think with no Pullis, him and Gayle could be electric

We won't sanction any further loan as it will take him to the end of his contract.

To bloody true mukka, cough up or cough off Newcastle. Still think has a target man he could do a job for us against certan teams anyway. 3 tonight  big feller.

How much do you think we could get for him ? Considering he is in the last year of his contract and in his 30’s. If we wanted 16 for him last summer then I’d have thought it will be less then that.

I though his contract covered this season and we have an option of a further 12 months and this was agreed before we allowed his loan to Newcastle, but I could be mistaken and normally am  :D

;D Gayle is one of us . In the after match interview they asked him if he was going to give JRod a hard time that he had overtaken him in the top scorer department...his response "I will remind him at least 10 times on the way home in the coach"......great lad ;)

Just out of interest, did anyone watch last night's game and if so how did Rondon do please?
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.

Didn't see all of it but a fair chunk. His general play was decent, holding it up, linking up etc. No goal though. Had 1 chance where I thought he should have buried it but no joy.
