Re: Dwight Gayle (on loan swap from Newcastle)

According to the Newcastle Chronicle Albion has agreed a season loan with a fee of £5m, with an option to buy if promoted valued at £15m. It was Gayle who turned the move down they say. So much for how he loved Albion.

It’s a job to these blokes, with a relatively short lifespan, so they will almost always do what is right for them, which is of course as it should be.

We are now a very different side to the one he played in last season....

I think he may have loved his time here...  rather than loved the club ;)

No issue with that, he wanted a permanent move and we weren't foolish enough to offer it. He's of absolutely no use to us aged 30 and in the Premier League (ie next season)  8)

Agree entirely with this.

bonus is that none of our rivals managed to sign him either.

He had a permanent deal on the table but stoke couldn’t afford his wages , or Gayle wouldn’t drop his wage demands. So he didn’t want a permanent move that bad mate

"I've heard they signed Andy Carroll, so he won't get much game time."

Sorry, must differ there. With Carroll's injury record I reckon Gayle will be playing most matches.

At £15 million quid, i'm glad he turned us down. It's way, way too much money for a player who has a limited shelf life now and who has never adapted to the top flight.

Great championship player but probably wouldn't have suited us this season anyway.

As for the Blues interest, how have they gone from money troubles to this all of a sudden?

Dwight was great for us last season, but he was never our player and not an Albion fan. You can't blame a bloke for wanting to make the most of the years he has left if it be in the top flight.
Let's thank Dwight for his input last year, he seems a nice guy, but let's move on and support the team we have now.

pity this deal didn't come off as I think with the way our midfield is set up now we could have created many more chances than he had last season.
Last season the midfield were too slow for the forward line, could be the other way round this season
