When Newcastle signed Gordon, I thought they had rocks in their heads. I couldn’t see the appeal. I have watched him a load and I get it.

He’s got the thing I feel Diaz lacks. Can go both ways past the fullback. He can get to the line for a pullback or cut inside and get a shot off. He’s also got the Jota thing of running directly at the goal. He doesn’t pick it up and head to the halfway line to get touches. He plays in one direction only.

He’s also a nark. He’s bristling with confidence. He’s 23, and he hates the blues.

I’m all in.

He played for the Blues. He seems alright in the brief interviews I've seen with him.

He needs stabilises on his bike though!

Only ever really seen him play against us and his pace has caused us issues.

Problem is majority of the teams we play against don’t play a high line and will try and make the pitch as small as possible with hardly any space in behind.

Whilst on paper Nunez and Gordon in a front 3 looks electric teams would be crazy to set up with space in behind against them.

To be fair JK23, we could’ve done with someone who thrives against the bigger sides that play a high line. We dropped points against City, Arsenal and Spurs. We also failed to win twice against Brighton’s high line, we went out of Europe to Atalanta who played a high press in the leg they won 3-0. We could’ve done with more pace and willingness to run in behind in the biggest games of our season. I reckon we would thrive in the big 6 head to head games if we had someone with that blistering pace in behind and ruthless 1v1 finishing that prime Mane had. He didn’t always rack up the goals against lesser teams but he was a big game player who always seemed to get goals against City and Arsenal.

It is something worth considering but teams knew how quick Haaland is and he scored a shed load of goals running in behind 1v1 with the keeper. If the movement and the pass is right I think it can still work even against cautious opposition. Mane and Salah’s pace in behind was scary back when they were both younger and teams could sit back if they wanted, but it still didn’t stop them tearing it up. Gordon and Nunez could hopefully have a similar impact. I’m admittedly an optimist though!

Watched his interview with Gary Neville and to be honest I thought he came across a little disingenuous.

{Ed025's Note - seeing him from a youngster at Everton he did come across as a bit of an arsehole Nevada, hopefully he has matured a bit because he does have the ability mate, needs a strong manager for me but i dont know much about Slot to be honest but if he does come he needs to stop that diving malarkey as its embarrassing..

Mk all Great points there mate and definitely food for thought.

Perhaps Gordon and Nunez could be phenomenal together and I suppose we would only know if and when it happened.

I certainly wouldn’t be against his signing but like I said I’ve hardly seen the lad play as I only watch the reds and catch highlights of others here and there when I can be bothered.

I was actually surprised by his stats if I’m honest and they are more or less identical to Nunez in the league.

I think the chances of us actually signing him now Newcastle have met their deadline is unlikely though.

@25, I thought he was a To$$er when he broke into the Everton team. His falling over if there was a bit of a breeze was a pain too. Now he seems to have turned into a charming, articulate, academic young man with fine footballing skills ??. Bit of the Emperor’s New Clothes in my opinion.

{Ed025's Note - i thought you might say that somehow WDW, but if he doesn,t join you im sure your opinion of him will return to type mate.. :)

Seriously we need a RW. Don’t we?
