I thought he was excellent yesterday. The goals are an obvious reason for my saying this but his work rate and general contribution were very good too. I do hope Gayle is not out for long because HRK is just not the answer, particularly in terms of goal scoring ability.

Thought his performance was consistent with the majority of performances this year. A couple of goals always helps but he always starts for me. He might mid place the odd pass and has missed a few sitters which of course is very frustrating, but I think he offers far more and his leadership and running power is essential for this side. If we lost him we would suffer badly. But hey, let’s have a pop at him anyway. It can’t do any harm, or can it?

I thought he had his best game of the season yesterday. He dropped deep, found space and used the ball well.Took his two goals really well.

IF one were cynical,
One could say that an upturn in form coinciding with the transfer window being about to open may be more than a coincidence, BUT that is being over cynical perhaps.

Burnley are continuing to struggle and it seems Dyche (or Burnleys scouting network at least) have been a fan of Jay for a while, I would not be at all surprised to see them coming back with a tempting offer for Jay,

What do people think it would take to prise hm away in Jan??

personally i think anything over 15m and he is gone.

I have been critical of Jrod at times this year, mainly due to missed chances, and still think that ideally he needs an instinctive and natural finisher along side him  but he was superb all round yesterday.  As well as the goals his passing was very good with some slick link up play.  His work rate this year has been commendable and yesterday I remember him making a goal saving challenge as last man on our 6 yard line.

West Brom manager Darren Moore says he is not concerned about possible January interest from Premier League clubs for English striker Jay Rodriguez, 29.

A few weeks ago, after missing a couple of sitters and costing us points his confidence looked shot and i would have taken a fresh tenner and bag of crisps.   On yesterday's performance I would have him back in that £15 million bracket for his all round play.

Two good goals yesterday certainly pushed up his valuation and as we don't have to sell I'd put a 30 million pound price on his head and if a prem club are willing to pay that good business for us.

The good
He puts in the effort and does have a decent shot on him, pretty clinical from penalties

The bad
First touch ain't great, his continued selection means better finishers (Gayle) end up pushed wide, like what we did with Odemwingie, always bloody apologising to the opposition players

Gayle as 13 and Rodriguez as 12? All good strikers miss chances at least he get's in the right positions to miss!

Very true, all players do miss chances and Rodriguez's goals yesterday were quality.

And after all it's only taken Jay an extra 796 minutes of playing time and 20 more chances for him to get within one goal of Dwight.

Still, when they count they count (Hand of Rod  8) ) and I'll be as happy as a pig in sh it if his goals help us towards eventual promotion.

Big up to Jay and COYB.

I think Rodriguez is possibly the teams most underrated player. Great work-rate, intelligent movement and use of the ball and has the ability to create something or make the goalkeeper work out of nothing. Yes, he has missed some chances, but which attacking player doesn't? He has also been played pretty deep for most of the season. To all extents and purposes at times he has been playing as more of an attacking midfielder than an out and out striker. He has been crucial this season in that he gives the team balance. I see him as no less influential than Barnes or Gayle and we would miss him just as much if not as more than them if he got injured or sold.

Very good header against Wigan, decent strike for the second but goalkeeping error that it went in, wouldn't happen next season if we go up. I've been critical of him a lot this season, missed far too many and been erratic, that back pass at home to Derby and that open goal against Brentford have cost us points. Better against Wigan. Jury is still out for me. Working hard. Just needs a bit more common sense and composure at times.

Yet created two against Leeds, scores two yesterday. The importance of the two against Bristol. The one that hit the bar against bristol. The one that hit the post against Rotherham that gayle scored.  JRod has benefitted from penalties and the crosses from Gayle but Gayle has benefitted from JRod.

He tends to drop deeper to allow Barnes and Gayle stay up more often. Of course he misses chances but he’s not a world class striker, he’s a fallible but hard working and honest striker that is on target for at least 20 goals. I don’t know why we have to pick at our players. It’s just a nonsense.

He has NOT at any stage this season played attacking midfield, it's not my opinion. He's playing centre forward.

To be fair, he does keep dropping deep to pick up and play the ball. He may be a centre-forward by design, but he's cropping up in different positions - whether that's to try and create space I don't know, but he has been back further than Barnes and Gayle / Robson-Kanu a few times when we've been defending.

Darren Moore Jay as been superb for us he is a great lad and a true professional he as done a great job in the positions we have asked him to play some of which he is not used to playing but I am sure if I asked him to play anywhere on the pitch he would. Now my take on it he as not repeat as not been playing centre forward.

If the chance arose would anyone on here sell Jrod to Burnley for £15m and get vydra or vokes on loan as part of the deal until the end of the season?

His position on the pitch isn’t limited by his position on a piece of paper.
