Loads of Newcastle fans have been reflecting on the weekend’s action, and they’re absolutely full of praise for Salomon Rondon.
Goalscoring has been a huge problem on Tyneside for quite some time now, as the goals the Magpies slammed in during their solitary Championship season have not transitioned into the top flight.
Much-maligned starts like Joselu and Aleksandar Mitrovic are actually at the good end of the spectrum of recent Newcastle strikers when you consider the likes of Yoan Gouffran and Emmanuel Rivière.

It appears as though the club has finally solved their number nine problem though, as Rondon continued his excellent form this weekend with a superb showing against Everton.
The Magpies came from behind to win 3-2 courtesy of the tireless and ruthless strike pairing that is forming between Rondon and Ayoze Perez, and fans are now desperate to sign the Venezuelan international permanently.
He is of course only on loan from West Brom at the moment, but judging from the Twitter reactions below the fans are in no doubt over who should lead their line next season…
If you don't get a permanent move here in the summer I'll smash my house up ,everything we want and need in a number 9 💪 Brilliant again 👏👏👏.
