Makes his goal return look even more mediocre. Gayle has 18 goals from open play in 2481 minutes (1 every 1.5 games), J Rod has 13 goals in 3596 minutes (every 1 every 3.1 games). Of course J-Rod also has the luxury of seven penalties as well most of them won by Gayle, none won by him.

I think you have just  proven my point about JRod, thank you for not disappointing. We are lucky to have both players

Well taken goal. In position and nice clinical flick off outside of his boot.

He’s a decent player, simple as that.

He's a very good goalscorer, when played in a 2, right up front. No more than that.

Definitely not, but we rarely use him as such.

Is that his fault?
What was wrong with his performance against PNE??

Not sure what the problem is with JRod.... he's scored 21 and people are not happy.
We have an average team,apart from Gayle and JRod who else is even near 10 goals.
I don't care if he sits down for 80 minutes if he keeps scoring

Sorry for those who this opinion rubs off badly upon, but I really don't rate JRod as a striker. Gayle is a miles better goalscorer who works twice as hard, is very unselfish and will nearly always score when fed. JRods penalties make up a lot of his goals, whereas Gayle has pretty much scored all of his from outfield play and has had an injury this season.

I actually think JRod might make a better AM than he does striker, that position is a lot more static and doesn't require lots of running. Hes not very good at holding up the ball either which I believe is essential for a striker in a 2 up top. I think JRod is a championship striker, whereas Gayle is Premier League class.

Personally if Burnley come back in with another 10m+ bid I'd let them have him.

Couldn't disagree more. JRod is best up top alongside Gayle. All this playing in the hole or from the left doesn't suit us and it doesn't help Gayle or JRod.

Rodriguez has 21 goals, 14 of which are not penalties. That is pretty good for someone that hasn't been used as a main striker.

42 goals between Dwight and Jay - play to their strengths. Get them both up top, stop fannying about at the back, get the ball forward earlier and let these two get on with it. They will and do score goals.

He never stopped running yesterday put in some good challenges and scored. He as 21 goals this season in a team IMO who have a poor midfield with someone better supplying the Ammo he would have had more. No pleasing some people what more do you want?

As I said, Dwight's scored the same amount despite being out for some time and not taking penalties. I just dont get the hype around him, hes not terribly convincing in any department. Average at holding up the ball, average at hitting the target, average work rate, average header of the ball. He puts away a mean penalty, I'll give him that, but besides that hes nothing special.

Any half competent striker playing for a top 2 team should be scoring 14 goals in a team that puts them on a plate for him. Especially if that team plays attacking football which we have for 90% of the season. JRods also missed an awful lot of chances that better strikers would have put away, I disagree that hes not had great service.

Anyway, it's all a game of opinions. I just think a target man with a strong head/finish alongside Gayle in the mold of Rondon would be a far more deadly combo than JRod and Gayle. If clubs like Burnley are going to bid silly money for what is, in my opinion, a championship striker, we'd be silly not to take it.
