May as well play an academy lad over this guy now.

 

Clearly been told he’s not getting any new deal and doesn’t give a toss anymore. Bound to be looking after himself, doesn’t want to get injured.

 

Haven’t seen him do anything of note since that header earlier on this season.

You would have thought a West Brom side with zero threat would have been the perfect game to get the ball forward and get him in the box. But no, Bruce was probably happy with his defensive header in the second half which went straight to a west brom player.

He’s finished at this level. People keep clamouring for him to play and he offers nothing whenever he does.

 

:thup:

 

Not sure he ever got started at this level tbh. Shouldn't be blamed as such simply because he shouldn't still be here. We should have got rid years ago. Useless footballer who seems to benefit from time out of the team where these "he gets goals" notions creep back in. He doesn't.

When does he play though? Towards the end of games when the whole team is playing shit.

 

He’s not a world beater but he’s a natural striker and the only competent one besides Wilson. He should be playing.

We’d never get the ball to him to prove or disprove that.

Exactly this.  He gets 10 minutes here, 15 minutes there.  Play him for f#ck sake!  We are desperate for goals and he's a striker.  What do you not understand Steve?

was like pardew chucking ben arfa towards the end of a game expecting him to win it on his own, inevitably resulting in criticism of him from parts of the crowd and pardew himself.

 

he knew wilson was out for a month - why not tell gayle he's gonna play him through the middle for the next 3 games and try putting an attacking set up around him that would suit his style.

Totally agree here mind, he is the only player with the ability to get a goal amongst the current line up. He is played on the left in one game and then today he spent more time in his own half than he did the opposition’s. He’s a striker only. Need to stop playing this system and play a system better suited to the players who are currently available.

Get a look at the next two posts after yours.  Can you honestly not see it?

It's the same for Fraser tbh. He's got some quality in the final third, but you aren't going to get much return if he's spending most of the time in his own half.

Yeah I would agree. This system has to be dumped whilst the players best suited to playing it are not available. It was Jones on the touch line telling Gayle what positions to take before he came on.

Half a decent season in the championship for us.  He is absolutely anonymous in games offers nothing.  So no I can't see it.  He should have left 2 or 3 years ago

I agree with all that, yes we should have replaced him.  However we scored NOWT again today and we are awful in the goal scoring department.  Whether you like it or not Gayle is our best bet for a goal.  We have three attackers in our playing squad.  Wilson, Carrol and Gayle.  At this moment in time we aren't playing any of them for various reasons of course (injury etc).  We are desperate to score a goal.  Please tell me what you suggest.

but we only had a week, and most of those days the training ground was shut due to the sports scientists so we couldnt change formation.

 

(the Coward actually said he couldnt start gayle today cos there wasnt enough time to change the formation).

Those spots scientists should be sacked as West Brom looked far fitter despite playing less than 72 hours earlier. Mind I don’t think it’s the sports scientists at all, just more utter bullshit by Bruce.

Half a decent season :lol:

 

He scored 4 goals from January till May in the best team in the league.  When he doesn't score he offers nothing.  He had half a decent season

 

He was injured, on and off, for most of that period.

"If we had played Andy and Dwight, then we’d have to change the whole set-up, and I don’t think we had time to do that.

 

"We’re getting used to playing in a certain way, it’s the way I want to play, but unfortunately, having come up with the system, we’ve been struck down by the loss of Almiron, Callum and Allan. It’s been very difficult to try to replace them."
