Not knocking Bowen or any points people have been making about him but how many goals/assists did Gayle get in The Championship 3 years ago and yet he still isn't deemed good enough for the Premier League.
He got 23 goals, don't know about assists and 24 last season. Bowen got 22 goals last season.
But why use Gayle as the benchmark of former championship players? There are plenty of players from that league who have flourished in the premier league and many of them didn't have stats as good as Gayle either. You are going down a rabbit hole by taking Gayle's stats and relative failure to make the mark as being the only stats that count.
You could just as easily point to the success of Vardy or Maddison, but you seem to have decided that championship players can never be good enough just because of Gayle. Doesn't make sense when you can judge him on his own merits.
