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.

Cheers Gazberg.

Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

Last night proved what we know only too well: Works hard, hold ball up well but cannot finish. Leave him where he is and get Gayle deal sorted!

Straight swap for Gayle seems reasonable.

Sorry, but no. Gayle always struggles for goals when he plays in the Premier League, he's essentially a modern Robert Earnshaw. He doesn't contribute enough to the team overall, and at that level you can't carry players, which is why he often gets used as an impact sub. Plus his injury record isn't great, and he's a player who relies on pace and movement coming into the period of his career where he is going to start losing those attributes.

If we stay down I'd make it permanent, if we go up I'd look to get somebody else.

Love Rondon and Gayle for different reasons, but in reality there is a reason why one is in the Premier League and one isn't.

IF we get back up i'd like us to have Rondon, J-ROd and Gayle as it gives a lot of options all different types of striker but can't see it myself.

FWIW, NUFC fans are in love with Rondon and consider signing him permanently a top priority.

respect and humility for everyone, absolutely everyone, who we come into contact with”

Aside from the delusion that they're a big club they're knowledgeable fans, they certainly know a number 9 when they see one.

Just do not accept that Gayle can’t score goals in the premier league. Goals are the same size last time I looked. Use him correctly and he will get goals.

defenders are much MUCH better though. Positioning isn’t enough and he’s not strong, fast or skilful enough to consistently beat PL standard defenders.

Rondon is worth more than Gayle, not even worth discussion.
