It has worked out well so far, to say the least, hasn’t it? It is nearing the close of Cauley Woodrow’s first campaign as a Barnsley player and he has certainly flourished under Daniel Stendel. The 24-year-old moved to South Yorkshire late in the summer transfer window from Fulham on a loan deal, which was to be made permanent in January.
Woodrow came with a positive reputation, having been a former England under-21 international and featured in both the Premier League and Championship prior to his move to Barnsley. The signing got a lot of Barnsley fans excited.
So happy with this. Looking forward to seeing him in red

Top signing, looking good up top now, Thiam Moore, Victor n Cauley. When Isgrove n Hedges come back we’ll be looking really strong…

One Bristol City fan did not have very positive feedback on Woodrow following his season-long loan there last campaign.
Ill also chip in as a Bristol City fan. He's not very good.

Numerous Fulham fans wished him well upon his departure, with varying thoughts as to how he faired at Craven Cottage.
Not as delighted as we are…

Good luck to Cauley he will do you proud – good honest footballer!

One Fulham fan even made a point as to how to get the best out of him, which Stendel has done.
Right, he needs to play in a two up front. Didn't really fit in Jokanovic set up. Showed potevtial a few years back. Think he will do well, gives everything. Good luck.

And he has been proved right. Woodrow has worked best within the first-choice strike partnership of himself and Kieffer Moore- the pair have 34 goals between them this season, despite Moore being injured since mid-February.
Woodrow has had to adjust to playing with alternative options in Moore’s absence, but he must keep this scoring form up of late as his goals will be crucial to Barnsley’s promotion hopes.
