We do need to sign him. Definitely looks like he can go for a few years. Works so hard for the team and scores a few. Been an important loan for us. Seems a sound guy too.

The strike is even better every time I see it. Running to his left and hits it out of the air on the volley while he’s diving on his weaker foot. Stunning goal.

Hes one of the first on the teamsheet for me now has turned into an integral part of the squad. If he doesn't stay it will cost us 20m plus to replace him
and now Tudor's gone down for Newcastle

What I love about this guy is that nearly all of his efforts are on target.

It should have been saved but you can't argue it was a quality strike which required a lot of technique.

I think the strike was going further away from Pickford and took a slight deflection and knuckles low quickly and under Pickford. I don’t think he saves that in any way.

I think the deflection is the only reason he didn't save it and even then he should still have.

I agree, but he is our only striker.

I honestly think this years achievement is far more impressive than last year considering we've only had Rondon as the only striker who can find the net.

We didn't have any striker who could find the net last year.

It's going to cost us the best part of £20m to keep him - although I'd argue that getting someone better (and there is no guarantee that a 'better' player works out as well) is nearer £30m

We need to bring in Rondon for whatever player + cash sum is necessary and then spend the next few years finding the perfect, younger replacement for him if we're going to play this system. He's simply perfect for it and the combination of his work rate and application with his ability in front of goal will not be easy to replace.

I'm clinging to the hope that Ashley will take the "hit" on signing a player without resale value if a) WBA stay down and are desperate; b) WBA are happy to sign Gayle on a permanent swap (or even another year-loan) and c) Rondon's demands are reasonable and; d) interest is limited to ourselves.

All those ducks line up, and he's a certainty to sign :thup:

Really can’t see that being the case.  I think the ambitious clubs in the league like Everton and Wolves will be very interested in him, and possibly 1 or 2 of the top 6 clubs might see him as an effective, reasonably-priced back up striker.

Wolves will be getting Jimenez permanently you’d think

You’d think so, unless a bigger club goes for him i suppose.

If WBA doesn't go up Ashley will try to re-negotiate the price and the deal will fall through.

I think the opposite. We’d just see him come here, Gayle go to WBA in a similar way to Townsend and Gayle swapping clubs. I know there’s no clause for Rondon but could still see it.

I know he has much more to his game than goals but was interested to see that Jimenez's goalscoring record in Europe was quite poor before this season. 1 in 21 at Atletico and 18 in 80 at Benfica

Actually he was almost always a sub at both so fair enough

It’s still really surprising how good he’s been i think.  He’s one of those that could turn to absolute s*** next season.

Aye, his goal return has been great especially because Wolves don't get that many players forward
