Gayle scores goals in the Championship so can in the Premier League according to Bruce.

Problem with playing him as a second striker is, you need another striker.

Brucey doesn't, he's happy to leave the team building to Ashley's specially recruited transfer team.

Maybe a sub role with bringing him on for the last 20-25 minutes is the best case scenario at the moment.

He looked knackered when he came on. I hate it when subs come in and don’t bust a gut. They should be full of running, dragging players with tired legs all over. He looked goosed.

Thought he looked quite mobile and sharp tbh, although he once again got his feet caught up when he got in the penalty area.

Hear hear.  I think the bloke is a complete plank as a number 9 but he did ok when he came on.  A back handed compliment if there ever was one.  😊

There was one moment where he played the ball out to the right to Manquillo, who took it forward and went to put it in the box, looked up and nobody was there. Joelinton was still standing where he originally played the pass. He made no effort to even try and get in the box. Just doesn’t have that attacking mentality at all. Or he just couldn’t be arsed.

Makes you wonder - were Hoffenheim using him differently, or did our scouts see something that simply isn't there?

I saw that it p*ssed me right off he will never score if he doesn’t bust a gut to get into the box.

It may have been because the second goal took the wind out of them but I thought you could see the benefit of having him on the pitch over Carroll when he came on. We actually kept the ball in their half that didn’t involve a long ball.

I think he’ll come good in front of goal with time.

I am just not quite sure what he does, he doesn't seem to poach much, he doesn't seem to want to turn last defender and sprint through on goal, and while he is alright technically his hold up play isn't good enough for him to brint ASM and Almiron into the game in the manner of Firminio. He may have promise, and maybe he'll find his feet and start scoring but there's a while to go imo.

I don't think he's s***, I think there's a pretty good player there, but he doesn't work in the role Bruce has given him. And now his confidence is shot.

Used him quite a lot on the side in a forward 3 as well as one of 2 forwards, and also as an attacking midfielder I think.

Suffering from Mitro Syndrome. Young prospect brought in for a big fee, and expected to lead the line in the [allegedly] toughest league in the world.

I’m actually worried about him ever reaching the potential.
