I was very doubtful about Gayle’s commitment and wanting to be here. Looks like I was wrong. He has so far only scored once but has been responsible for at least three, and his running and movement off the ball has been excellent. I repeat, and am very pleased to say I WAS WRONG about Mr Gayle long may he continue to impress.

Easier said than done, IF the comments attributed to Rondon when he left and the recently published interview are true he has no intentions of playing for us again.

Just seen that bet365 have Gayle at 16/1 to finish as championships highest scorer
Jay R is 6/1

I may have a little dabble on DG at that price

Oh and a certain fat lad at Stoke is 50/1

even if that happened I don't think he'd want to come back. I think he'd prefer to go to an easier league in Europe.

......... I didn't feel the second one was a penalty, as I don't think he could have kept the ball in play, but that isn't his fault at all.


Whether he could keep ball in play or not has nothing to do with it. If you are brought down in the box it's a penalty! Siiiiimples  :D

Cheers Albionic

Had £10 on it myself. I see that Jay has shorter odds, but we may lose him in January to a struggling Premier club, and Dwight will be with us all season, so it makes sense....

If he puts the ball in the net he can have a saveloy on his barnet for all I care.

Really warmed to Gayle.

Knows where the net is, his workrate is there, seems a nice bloke, have seen numerous posts of him posing for pics with fans etc.

Would love it if we could some how tie him down to a permanent deal but I cant see that happening unless we go up and Newcastle have an amazing season and think they can attract a 'world class' striker.

2 things wrong with that
a) the toon fans think they can attract anyone, anytime, as they are a big club whahey man
b) Ashley will not spend big, he has stated they are a selling club.

wasn’t part of the loan deal that we will buy Gayle at season’s end no matter what happens? Correct me if I’m wrong.

I really like this chap, wants to play, has a great attitude and is a real menace in the box as QPR found out.

I saw that when Rondon came on in the first game, he missed a clear cut chance from 8 yards........thats the Rondon we know and love!

We have got the better part of this deal by a long way, I only hope that there is no early recall aspect to it......

As I've previously stated,stranger things have happened,Newcastle get relegated and we get promoted.
Or Dwight is really happy and appreciated and wants to stay if promoted and hands in a transfer request or he has a buy out clause.

Gayle looks really really good.  He's incredibly quick, works hard, is always making good runs and moving the defence around, that's what has made it easier for the attacking players to find space.  HRK and J-Rod didn't do enough of that.

He should have put away the chance he had for the first goal though, I'd criticise Rondon for missing that so fair's fair.

I don't believe there is the option to buy him included. Just had a quick look on the official site and nothing mentioned when it was announced we had him on loan.

Didn't Wilson tweet when this was all going through the hold up was because both players wanted the options to buy included in terms?

A striker like Dwight is what we’ve been missing the last few seasons. Wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up championship top scorer again. Seems to have a really good attitude as well, always giving 100%

Agree 100%.
Some strikers anticipate where to be at the right time, and get the timing right. I've always preferred mobile strikers who can turn quickly, such as Kevin Phillips, rather than big physical target men who are less mobile and alot more predictable for defenders.

Hope they haven't got a recall clause in loan deal as rumours of Rafa leaving in January if funds aren't made available.

Disagree with the Super Kev comparisons. Super Kev was a cut above every striker we've had in recent times (including Lukaku) in my opinion. Phillips had so much going for him, was a class act.

What he does have is a great first touch in front of goal and the ability to finish. More Earnshaw-esque in my opinion.

Got a little bit of the Ally Brown about him, you don't notice him until he pops up in the right place and scores
