Newcastle United failed to impress on Saturday, losing 1-0 at home to bottom side West Bromwich Albion in the English Premier League.
With nothing left to play for between now and the end of the season, the Magpies looked every bit a side already thinking of the close season holidays against Darren Moore’s outfit, conceding a first half Matt Phillips goal to lose the match.
The side’s top performers all failed to perform to the standards they’ve set and others, like Dwight Gayle, continued to frustrate supporters.
The striker hasn’t adjusted well to life in the top-flight after excelling during their promotion season, scoring just five goals in the Premier League this term.
Fans are growing impatient with his performances, with some feeling that he should be moved on this summer, even those who recognise how important he was for them in 2016/17.
Should Newcastle let him go when the transfer window opens?
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Just how average is Dwight Gayle? #nufc

Dwight Gayle had such a bad half and just missed a sitter wtf man. Definitely the most disappointing player of the season for #NUFC . Not the worst but digressed by so much.

Gayle, Joselu, Murphy are a must sell at the end of the season palm them off to the mackems If anything they are a joke how they became footballers is beyond me #NUFC

Thank you very much for your effort, for your goals and the 3rd V’s Barnsley and the next few minutes after that goal will stay with me forever. However if we’re to move forward then I don’t see you in the team. As I say thank you for what you’ve done for NUFC.

All strikers at the club ain't good enough, but his "attempts" to win free kicks were shambolic!

Sell him to a Championship side as soon as the window opens.

Not been the same since he did his hammy last season. Better than he’s shown this season, but not what we need going forward. I’d keep Mitrovic & bring in a quality forward. Sell Gayle & Joselu.

Not good enough if we are wanting to push on in the league. #nufc

He's one of the main reasons we got promoted so I won't slag him off but he's probably just played one of his last games for us. Simply no Premier league standard
