So apparently it's going to be a loan swap with Gayle <laugh>

And if anyone needs it Samaritans: 116 123 (UK)
I'm not too bothered by that, so long as we have an option to buy in case he turns out to be worth buying.

Plus leaves more money for other players we need this window.
given the lenght of time left in the window and how it feels like we drag out the important signings, I think Donron will be the last bt of business

Inevitably people will joke that a loan suits best because WBA get Gayle while they need him scoring championship goals and NUFC get him back when they will need him to do the same again <disgrace>

That makes far too much sense to be amusing <erk>

Why? We play one up top and we've got three plus Perez, that's more than enough.
Muto and Perez aren't strikers. If Rondon gets injured we're left with Joselu which is unacceptable imo.
I don't disagree on Joselu, but Rafa signed him and opted to play him last season over Mitrovic. I'm not really seeing where this "Muto isn't a striker" is coming from either, or the idea of playing a near six footer as the little man to Rondon's big man...

I'd love to see another (better) striker come in, but I really can't see it happening.

This!! Lol, loads of people seem to be reclassifying Muto, I don't get it, I don't think he's ever played significant time as a secondary striker or no.10 in his whole career. AtMaonz he was the sole striker IIRC

I'll pile on with this two. Seems as if every time we're unimpressed by a player's goal scoring record people justify it by suggesting they're actually a winger or attacking midfielder...even though they never played in those positions - but simply don't score all that much.

To be fair his record is about 1 in 3 at Mainz which isn't too bad. I can't even pretend to know much about him, but a cursory glance at last season shows he wore number 9 and often played ahead of a number 10...

I rang the Samaritans in a rather distressed state about the way the club is being run. After half an hour of listening to me the Samaritan hung himself.
My problem is reconciling my gross behaviour with my net income.

Sky are confirming Gayle as signed for WBA but no word on Rondon.

I misread it and rang the Sarmatians.

Man is that going to be an expensive call.
