The link up play for the Rondon goal was unreal.

He’s easily got two years at this level of game left in him. 100% worth signing for someone between 16-20 million.

He won’t get loads of goals but you can tell the opposition are constantly worried about him.

Compare that to the docile Joselu and you can easily see how we fail to pick up points when the big man doesn’t play.

He's going to be the difference between potential relegation and a mid-table finish. Surely someone can explain to Ashley the value he adds is more than the aversion to "old" players?

Yep, and yet it's what you'd expect from him, always seems to manage to hit it hard and low and generally on target.

Said earlier this season he's an inferior version of Drogba, hes perfect for our system, loved the way he knows when he has time to bring the ball down and just plays it casually back to a player and then jogs back to position.

How were Everton getting away with climbing over his back every time a high ball came towards him?

Absolutely pivotal we sign this lad properly in the summer. Think it rests on WBA coming up. If they’re a PL side we’ll be priced out of it.

That first goal yesterday was one of the best I've ever seen.
Absolutely must keep him.

It was a good goal because he used his weaker foot to score it. The build up and pass from Perez was amazing.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

I think he could play well in the Premier League for another 3 or 4 years and we could still get our money back for him if we sold him to a Chinese club.

Lad has proven himself and is far, far better than i ever gave him credit for.
Was not convinced on him at all when we got him, absolutely wrong on that one.

Has the ability and technique in this system and under this manager to be a great signing.

Has to be our first signing of the summer.
It's basically what gives us the upper hand even in times of crisis. "Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG? BET ALL THESE COPPERS ARE MAGS, AND THE MEDIA! THE REF'S A f***ing MAG! AM I A MAG?! Wait, blacked out for a second there. Ah, f***, we've lost again."

How many times weren't the Everton defenders allowed to just barge into his back and climb over his head yesterday without it being a foul?

So important to how the team plays and has a really good understanding with Perez.

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.
