Lazy? He absolutely ran his bollocks off. I get some of the criticism but calling him lazy on the back of that effort tonight is daft.

He ran his arse off - proper shift

His general link up play and effort was good, but he just does not look like scoring.
For a Centre forward that is a problem.

Thought he did well and made a big contribution leading the press

Tried hard and at least got in a position to miss one sitter. But quality isn't there guys. Tammy Abraham or even Lewis Grabban would have scored a hatful against that Newcastle team tonight. At times in the first half I thought he was getting in AEGs way. Better in second half

The big fella played well tonight. Whatís hard for him and not his fault is we had Tammy last year banging in the goals for fun, however we wouldnít of got him for the money we paid for Wes.

Thought he had a good game tonight, should have scored which would have helped his confidence overall.

Why does it have to be a case of extremes? He wasn't shit or great tonight, he was alright. Huffed and puffed, held the ball up well once or twice, got in the right position once or twice but didn't finish well enough. He was alright.

This. Did OK but needs to improve. Should have had a goal.

I thought he was ok, but as I said on the match thread, Tammy he ainít. Doesnít look like he has a natural goal scorerís instincts to me, much like Keinan. Lots of other things to admire in both their games ,  but 20 goals a season from either - I very much doubt it.
Must add a striker in the window - I honestly wouldnít bother with anything else. Just a goalscorer.

I think he is doing fine. Was anyone really expecting more goals from someone new to the EPL, whose record in the Belgian league was less than 1 in 3? He has 4 in 12 for us so far. The issue for me is whether he is leading the press, and linking-up play. He was doing this superbly against Everton, and needs to keep to those standards.

And let Rondon and Perez leave...

On Wes, for all the talk "he needs a goal", his recent goals haven't sparked any real improvements so it's not just a confidence issue. Better attitude and workrate tonight for sure but technical ability and a genuine forward threat he isn't providing let's be honest. I honestly think Davis would have about the same amount of goals but definitely would add more in terms of bringing our midfielders into the game. Has Wes an assist for us yet this season ? We simply have to strengthen our options up top in Jan.

apart from the two identical chances he scored against Arsenal and Norwich..we seem so quick to write him off.. 4 in 14 ain't great, but it's a whole lot better than none in 14 for the £40m striker in the opposition tonight. He will get better we have sod all else to replace him with and he working his bollocks off.. he deserves a bit of slack
