Absolute fraud. Praying Burnley come back in with anything remotely 8 figures in January.  >:(

well, if Rondon had missed that many gilt edge chances as JRod did tonight.................

He's a clever player in many ways but he is really struggling in front of goal at the moment

Ok it was a bad miss but those chances where you have to lunge forward at full stretch, there is a risk it catches the wrong part of your foot as you're not in total control of your body.

He was in total control though. It wasn't on the stretch he was sliding and comfortably getting to the ball.  The guy just isn't a great finisher.  He also had a bunch of other chances, air shots,  mis controls, taking too long to get his shot off, making the wrong decision, etc

We looked like we were playing with two competition winners up top.  Bit harsh on HRK, because he at least offered something in other areas of the pitch.

He does. Away from home Gayle as the outlet offers you far more. He can't finish and those games when we only get one chance and we need the net to bulge.

Terrible misses again, please come back in for him Burnley.

In an ideal world they pay what they offered for him in the summer and we get vydra on loan from them.

If you're sliding you lose some control though, that's why it's bad when tacklers go off their feet. Anyway we are agreed it was a bad miss. As for HRK's header, again he should have scored no doubt but there was a little 'clever' push in his back while he was airborne which probably didn't help.

I find it amazing how Jay seems to avoid a large amount criticism, he’s been poor for some time now, I’m sure he’s a really nice guy and he works hard but his performances and finishing have been way off. Hate to say it but if this was Rondon playing this way he’d being getting absolutely slated.

Spot on. Also worth noting Rondon has never played as poorly for us as Rodriguez has for the majority of this season, and in a much better division too.

Rondon in the current 4-3-3 set up would be a beast.  I'm not convinced he is a natural finisher either but would have been interesting to find out given the number of chances we now create.

JRod is a likeable footballer and there was no mention of strops or dummies out of the pram in the summer which I appreciated.  But I reckon he must be nearly in double figures for missed chances already this season (not half chances either).   He is either a decent striker who is a confidence player and has poor runs of form, or a very average striker who occasionally hits a run of good form.   It's also surprising how much his aptitude for taking penalties masks his actual goal return - although it should be noted that he doesn't win them.

Given the quality of many of the chances which have fallen his way, allied to him being on penalties, he really should be on at least 16 goals by now. Hope he bags the winner on Friday. But if we fail to win and he misses as many chances as versus Brentford he can keep walking down the tunnel without bothering with a shower on the way out.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.

It’s a good point, his figures are bulked out by the penalties but all of them have been won my Gayle. Id love JRod to find his form but in reality I don’t think he’s good enough. If Burnley come back for him with a sensible offer I’d be tempted to take it and invest it in someone like assombalonga or even Neal Maupay.

I'll give him a hand packing if Burnley hand over the money.

Obviously there will be handkerchiefs readily available for those who cannot handle his departure.

Hopefully, we'll find a more handy player upfront after we make an handsome profit on him.

Seriously if Burnley,who could well be desperate in January came back in with 15 million you would snatch their hands off.

I know he's a Burnley lad, but if they have watched him more than once or twice this season there is no way they will come in with a bid that big.   Maybe knock the ten digit off.....and at that point you have to question if it's worth selling unless he really wants to go.
