Dwight Gayle has been in stunning form for West Bromwich Albion this season, with the centre-forward netting five times and registering five assists in eight Championship appearances.
Gayle joined West Brom on loan from Newcastle United during the summer, having been deemed surplus to requirements by the Magpies for the 2018-19 campaign.
The 27-year-old only managed six Premier League goals last term, and it has been said that Gayle is a very good Championship striker, but a pretty average Premier League one.
There is no question that the 5ft 9in striker has been in impressive form for the Baggies this term, however, and the Newcastle fans have been reacting to his latest goal.
It would be fair to say that many are still frustrated with the fact that Gayle, and indeed Aleksandar Mitrovic, were allowed to leave during the summer.
Joselu, Salomon Rondon and Yoshinori Muto have all struggled in the early stages of the 2018-19 campaign, and the Newcastle fans are not best pleased.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the club’s supporters can be seen below:
Got rid of him and Mitrovic and kept Joselu

Imagine having Gayle and Mitro as an option up top then thinking Rondon and Joselu are the better option 😅

Keep Gayle and Mitro or get Rondon on loan… I know which I would have preferred

And former striker Mitrovic scored too…and we have Joselu (who I don’t rate) and Rondon (who I’m very disappointed with so far!)

Would’ve offered us more than Ayoze does

Missed a few last season but ludicrous to let him go ! Keeps defenders on their toes and has always scored goals . But some clown thought the awful Rondon would be a better option!
