I'm really disappointed in him so far this season, massively underwhelming. Take away the penalties won for him by Gayle he has barely laid a glove on the opposition. Needs to start scoring goals and getting involved in games. Just hope he clicks into some form sometime soon.

I think his performances are perhaps symptomatic of the fact that maybe his heart isn't here

I think his performances are symptomatic of a player that isn't really good and IMO is very one dimensional, he has a touch of pace but little else n terms of vision etc

Needs to be more consistent for me. I wasn't at Preston but apparently he played well. Goes missing too much for my liking. Can't ever fault his effort and he's a model professional. Just need to see a bit more quality on a more regular basis.

Are we talking about a guy who's scored 7 goals for us this season so far?
Or someone else who's not scored yet?

I was at Preston where he was excellent. Don’t think he can be faulted this season.

4 of which have been penalties won by Gayle. I like Rodriguez but I don’t think he’s as good as some make out, and as has been stated his consistency has been an issue right from time the start, he has been more consistent so far this season but hats not to say he hasn’t had some bad games.

He does go missing imo and I wouldn't have complained if he'd gone to Burnley for a massive fee.

Problem was who was going to replace him, as our other targets like Jack Marriott aren't tear it up at Derby.

We may regret letting Tyler Roberts go as he scored the winner again tonight.

Didn't catch the Preston game but personally think he hasn't got going yet this season.

Point is he scored 4 penalties!
He could have missed them or had them saved.
If he goes missing so what?
I dont think he does.
I can't believe that some on here are knocking a player who is our leading goalscorer,we only scored 21 last season.
Our front two are deadly savour them stop the criticism.
I could understand it if we were struggling to score but really guys.

Its constructive criticism nothing wrong with that. Some people want to be a little less defensive and a little more open minded.

We didn't let Tyler Roberts go, he chose to refuse several new contract offers and moved on.

But yes, we may well live to regret him choosing to fk us off at some point.

Really needs dropping I'm still aggrieved with that back pass against derby and his failure to execute a 3 yard pass for a Gayle tap in.

Missed a big chance again today.

Don't think he offers enough if we are going to persist with the 2 up top I hope it's Sako and Gayle. Although I would be happy for him to dropped for an extra midfielder

In an ideal world burnley will be struggling and will make a stupid offer for Jrod and Dawson in Jan and dowling will have found some great replacements.

If the disarray at brentford continues then a cheeky 7m bid for maupay may get him but probably need to go higher.

I don't think Jrod is great and at his age we should cash in before it is too late.

Today's miss was bad but we need him to be on about 12 - 15 goals by Jan to attract a stupid bid of 18-20m imo.

As the penalty taker he has a good chance to have that many goals. And plenty of chance of Burnley being in trouble come Jan. Cardiff and Huddersfield might be in for him yet. at his age any offer over £8 mil I would be taking.

The only problem we will have is if they actually watch him play at which point a fiver with a mars bar thrown in wild seem a decent offer.

Not a midfielder , not a wide player . Just a badly out of form forward , very lucky the only option behind him is HRK so far this season.
Personally don't think he's got going at all this season , bench for me when Gayle is fit and let Sako or even Burke have a run.

In general I quite like him but at the minute I feel he's miles off . Doesn't win the ball , doesn't hold the ball , lacking physically when up against tough defenders , not creating much and not much of a threat . Too much time playing with his hair  :).
Needs a break when Gayles fit IMO.

Wouldn’t argue that he needs a break but I have seen far worse in his position at Albion. If he ends up on bench does it finally mean no place in the 18 for HRK? Or is that a crazy dream I’m having? ;)

The issue in JRs case is the same as the midfield and CB positions, we've got 2 decent players, but no quality replacements to come in. Therefore he plays wether he's good,bad or indifferent. We should of took the ££ for him and Dawson in the summer and rebuilt with younger hungry players, as it's clear Dawson doesn't want to be here either.

He struts around the pitch playing with his hair. Missed an OPEN GOAL yesterday and reacted by jogging back to the half-way line high-fiving his team mates like it was something to be proud off. He should have had his head torn off for it. Particularly after that back-pass in midweek. The attitude of the team is embarrassing. His only contribution this season is the header at Preston and a lucky goal at Norwich. Gayle has won him a few penalties to get his goal count up. With no Gayle we needed him to step-up yesterday and he was anonymous. Clearly a very average player. Doesn't seem the brightest either given his pathetic you stink rubbish with Bong. Managed to kick the Blackburn GK in the head, couldn't even jump over him.

average striker since that bad injury he had if Burnley come back in for him I'd let him go.
