Generally can't fathom how fans want to spend £20m on Gayle, who's had had one good season at Champ level in a strong Newcastle team, but don't want a loanee who was in the Germany squad 3 years ago.

Not worth 20m but a good young prospect. Pacey and an eye for goal. Surprised Newcastle are letting him go and not helping him progress. They will probably want to buy him back in 3 years time.

It's just a case of knowing what your getting isn't it, we are lucky because Radz got Orta who has looked outside the box and found some gems, I mean how much did Newcastle pay last season for average players? I bet it was a lot and yet look at what we have spent and up till now they have been superb, and if they carry on performing like they are what will Siaz and Alioski be worth next season? I think we would of happily let Cooper go for a free last season but what will he be worth the way he's playing and young Grot could be the next Drogba! I think our backroom guys have done a bloody good job! MOT

Both good options

With all these silly prices for strikers, I'm starting to think Chris Wood was sold on the cheap.

He's 28, that's not young. No re-sale value either and he's not good enough for the PL, so if you go up you have to get rid.

Exactly Mike. Newcastle can't afford players now as they spent so much on average Championship players. For £20m, you want someone who can get you into Europe.

{Ed001's Note - to be fair, they sold a hell of a lot of players to make the money to buy those Championship players. Their sales totalled roughly 90m and buys 57m, so they should have had no issues. The problem is that Mike Ashley brought in one of his 'mates' in order to break all the promises he had made to Rafa without having to do so directly. Ashley makes a nice little earner from Newcastle, as well as having all that free advertising, he doesn't want that to end just because a manager wants to buy a few players to be competitive.}

I think personally that spending that amount of money on a player like Gayle would be crazy for our club. Yes he scored goals last season but l can see Roofe also scoring as many now that he is being played in the correct position for him. Don't honestly know much about Lassoga but he has played at a higher level and with Hamburg paying a large proportion of his wage this season think AR and TC have played a blinder. Grot could be another star find, reminds me of the big Norwegian Villa use to have. Do we really need to get involved in this desperate drama of paying silly money for hyped up players. Trust in AR and his staff, hasn't done a bad job so far.
