Newcastle fans here in the Tavern are becoming increasingly underwhelmed by their performance in the forward department. Well, one man in particular, such is the cult-hero status of Aleksandar Mitrovic and the burgeoning one of summer signing, Joselu.
A club so synonymous with centre-forward, while the current crop of marksmen try their hardest, it’s crazy to imagine that these lot follow the likes of Jackie Milburn, Mick Quinn, Andy Cole, Alan Shearer and Michael Owen.
Joselu certainly is a handful and gives the team an awful lot, though isn’t the most prolific in front of goal. Mitrovic, meanwhile, has never really seemed overly trusted by Rafa Benitez, with his Toon career littered with disciplinary issues.
However, one man in particular who has played poorly so far this season is their Championship form hero, Dwight Gayle. The 27-year-old is yet to net for the club so far this season and has looked well off the pace now he’s back in the Premier League. After making 7 appearances so far this season, many punters have expressed their disappointment in the striker, and they see a possible move away for the forward.
With Benitez looking to consistently pick the Spanish duo of Ayoze Perez and Joselu, Gayle has done little for his chances thus far and surely a decent offer from a Championship club could tempt the Toon into a sale.
So, we’re asking Newcastle fans, has Gayle ruined his chances for United this season?
