« on: August 06, 2018, 12:06:23 PM »
About time he had his own thread.

Pete O'Rourke has just confirmed he's sealed his deal.

Its not letting me copy the tweet in, Pete O'Rourke has said hes sealed his loan switch as part of the deal, I imagine its just a case of finalising the Rondon part of the deal.

Hopefully he is registered in time to be involved tomorrow at some point.

I think he's on a similar level of reliability as Percy is for us

He is verified, O'Rourke, so take it as read.

If we are getting no use out of Rondon, having Gayle in at this level is a brilliant signing. Just hope we get the best out of him.

My worry is Gayle is a bit too much like Jrod , if the JRod stays of course. Gayle will get goals but needs supply.

If Gayle has signed that's good news,proves he wants to be here and it suits him to be,so I expect him to be a hit and bang in some goals,starting tomorrow night.

RONDON-GAYLE SWAP AGREED

Newcastle and West Brom have agreed a season-long swap for Salomon Rondon and Dwight Gayle.

Sky Sports News understands Newcastle will pay a fee of around £2m for the Venezuela international Rondon, who is currently on Tyneside having a medical.

West Brom suffered a surprise opening-day defeat at home to Bolton but will boost their attacking options by taking Gayle – who we understand is in the Midlands finalising the move - as part of the deal.

Well it might or it might not! I presume loaned players get paid some kind of sweetener as an incentive? If so, his motivation might not be what we think it is.

I really do not get this, I hope I am wrong BUT I think we have swapped Rondon for an inferior player and some cash, I also suspect the cash will not be re-deployed on the team.

I am pretty sure he's not as good as Rondon, but if Rondon was pushing the move through and this was the option at least we have someone else to play up front.  A front two of J-Rod and Gayle i sbetter than J-Rod and HRK.

I think rondon is a cracking player who I have always supported.
However,perhaps the way he plays doesn't suite Dave now.
We needed a Phillips type which is,I know to a lesser degree,what Gayle is.
It must suit him to come to us and play so I look forward to some goals.

Still don't see how this works , Gayle goes back to Newcastle at end of season and Rondon goes wherever he wants for nothing as I beleive he is out of contract , how is this a good deal for the club ??

What I don't get is that rondon has signed for them but Gayle is in the midlands discussing terms?
What happens if the terms don't suit him?

Could be a very shrewd move this , one we look back on and say it did the job.

The only bit I am confused by is what happens at the end of the year, Rondon just walks away on a freebie?

If he does well at Newcastle I imagine he would sign there and he would have only cost them 2million.

That being said, I said some stats on him earlier and I think hes workrate actually blinds how poor he is in front of goal.

Here are his premier league stats:

Shots 244   

Shots on target 76   

Shooting accuracy % 31%   

Big chances missed 24

Terrible deal if as reported we only getting 2 million. It makes no sense at all
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

I imagine they have probably picked up the difference in wages between the two as well, which seems to have been the sticking point.

Think we’ve only been convinced to do a loan deal because they are providing us with a replacement. Not getting a fee for a sale would be a big problem if we then had to go and find a replacement ourselves.

Rondon and Gayle are different types of player, you can't really compare them but if you look at their record at premier league level Gayle has a better shot accuracy (36%) than Rondon (31%) and missed less big chances, their goal scoring rate is virtually identical although Rondon's is slightly better 4.5 compared to 4.7 games per goal.

I know that's only comparing their goal scoring and there is more to being a striker/forward etc than scoring (but imo it is the most important part of the job).

However we aren't in the Pl anymore and there's no evidence that Rondon would improve in front of goal in the Championship whereas we know Gayle can score in the Championship.
