Have you seen how many subs Hodgson makes? He'd rather have 2 subs on his bench as it used to be, or maybe none at all! May as well give Roy the squad he wants: a small one.

Ayew? NO THANKS

Would I be good value for £3m? I could sit on the unused subs bench for months and months too. Don't sign ANYONE who is not a first XI player for Roy Hodgson. He wants a small squad. We have enough filler in the squad already.

Not sure why he would know that, or any new signing. I’m sure they’re not blasé about it but it’s a job to them after all.

Think Ayew is a decent squad player, easily good enough for our level, who we played out of position, as we sometimes do. Think he’d have done well replacing Townsend during his recent rest as he’s best carrying the ball forward from deep, drawing fouls to relieve pressure or playing one-twos and getting a shot away from around the penalty area.

To think we played him as a back-to-goal striker is bonkers. Like buying an wardrobe and expecting it to be able to mow your lawn.

But Ayew wasn’t unused when we had injuries in positions he could play.

I think it’s too early to damn this potential purchase. Michy will return to Chelsea and I fully expect Roy to sell either Benteke or Wickham in the summer. Maybe even both of them.

So 2, maybe 3, of our strikers could be gone soon. Meanwhile, Swansea must be pushing us to make a decision now about Ayew so they can plan ahead. Purchasing Ayew now doesn’t mean he’s the first priority, it just reflects the fact that his situation has to be resolved promptly as he’s a loanee.

Come August I expect our forwards will be a new guy, Wickham/Benteke, then Ayew and ofcourse Wilf can do it at a push.

If we had a great youngster coming through, then I’d like to make room for him. But Roy must know this is currently looking unlikely.

Given that we seem to have gone into two seasons without any strikers at all he seems to be a good option at that price (if true).

At least we can’t be disappointed when he fails to score goals.

More of the same from Roy next year then!
Plus I'm guessing they pay us the 4 million to take him?

23 appearances and 2 goals this season but you know make up what you will.

I guess it makes sense as he was a Roy's signing, he knows the players etc but tbh he has been fairly underwhelming, can only think of 1 games I thought he played well and that was the draw away to Saints.

For his role in the squad and Roy's lack of subs/squad rotation, surely we could just put an U23 player on the bench and save the best part of £50K week and £4M (Daly, Aveiro, Lumeka)

To be fair to Ayew, I’m still not convinced we’ve seen the best of him. I.e, a winger in a 4-3-3.

Apart from the merits of Jordan Ayew, this makes it seem very likely that Roy Hodgson will still be with us next season. Good news from my perspective, but it wasn’t completely obvious.
