Just awful.... Not technically[sad]

We need a big forward but he's not the answer.

How many big money forwards do we need who cannot finish[V]

He is terrible, if he isnít winning the ball in the air I fail to see what he actually does?
He canít control a ball, isnít particularly strong or fast, and missed two easy chances todayí.

He's not even that great in the air! He hardly dominates against centre half's. Still haven't forgiven him for missing that chance at Swansea last season [;)]

Honestly the idea of him being good in the air is a massive myth too. I bet most of the championship strikers could do better if they had his height. He needs binning ASAP

Gestedes made a living out of a purple patch for Blackburn 4 years ago, his goal record since has been abysmal

He takes so much out of a teams ability to transition as hes slow and had dreadful technique/dribbling

He's only playing because all our other strikers are as soft as XXXXXX and Pulis needs a Presecence up top

I did Pottomed. As I said, when people kept referring to a 1-1 chance I thought they meant him being through on goal and shooting wide or the keeper making a save. I do remember him being through on goal after the bad back pass and basically screwing it up, but thought they might have meant something else when speaking about a missed chance, as he didn't actually manage to get a shot away.

Much as he is maligned by the football purists on here Bamford with his intelligent runs and touch would be a far better option to lead the line. He would certainly have had two goals yesterday. Whoever scouted, and agreed to pay 6 mill, for Gestede a year ago wants sacking.

I suppose the only thing in his defence is he hasn't really had a run of games for us.

That said, he's been poor. From what I've seen of him would literally rather have Jutkiewicz. And no one in their right mind would spend that sort of money on the Juke.

Agree for his actual hight he isn't that good in the air and he doesnt dominate CBs.

Also back to goal and holding up the ball isn't amazing. I have seen better from journeymen like Steve Morrison or Gary Madine (not saying I want either but they are more physical and 'nasty'). Also thought Jordan Hugill looked decent from PNE although he is linked with a few champo clubs for 6mil+.

Everyone was stunned when we paid 6mil for him and I've seen nothing to suggest he will ever come good.

Boro probably have one of the worst recent records for signing strikers in the top two divisions - Ricketts, Mido, Alves, Boyd, Aliadiere now Gestede, Fletcher.

We pay kings ransoms for tripe, yet other clubs are constantly finding golden nuggets and bargain buys.

said it last season. worst signing ever. no doubt about it. we have had bad signings who hve made little impacat for a lot of money. but he takes the buscuit. he has actually had a negative impact for a lot money. then theres the bit where he was just everything we didnt need under karanka. worst ever.

The myth about him being good in the air is just that. ive said it many times 1before. he has this amazing ability of being somewhere near without actually challenging. You compare that to negredo. who not only won every header that he should. he won a 5hit load of headers he had no right winning. the negredo knockers wont have that (even though i constantly posted links to the stats where he was in the top 3 for heading in the league.

if his price tag is anything to go by i would pay 100m for hugil. infinitely better.

i wasnt there saturday but if could have went, when that team was announced, i wouldnt have gone. im not wasting my saturday afternoon watching that useless XXXXXX. i wont be going again while he is starting. already thinking pulis cant have his head screwed on right.

gestede out....

before we are back to 12k crowds please

Awful player and as has been said above doesnít even win headers. He canít even time his jumps correctly. He just isnít a footballer in any sense. That first chance was a disgrace for a professional footballer. He almost literally fell over his own feet. The second one was an awful finish but it was caused by a really woeful first touch.

He shouldnít be anywhere near the first 11.

Well the fact he had to appeal and even at the appeal the police gave evidence against him shows that itís not his fault for believing it to be a racist gesture. Not widely used, only known to a small subset of people and similar to a racist gesture and he used it at a black player? Not a huge shock that he had that reaction.

On the odd occasion he actually wins a header, and lays it off, he doesn't make any effort to race into the box for a return option, but ambles about as though he has done his bit. If Pulis can't see it we are in worse trouble than we thought

Big bloke, can't leap or time his leaps properly. No better in the air than players a lot shorter, when he does win the ball it's not as though he lays it off or is able to turn with it.

Would love to know how he ended up at Boro, was he scouted, did the manager want him? Was he bought by the owner?

He wasn't good enough in the PL, he isn't good enough for a Championship side looking to be in the top six.

Just a really poor signing and as a club there have been far too many of those recently.

I hope TP is able to rectify the issues we are having with expensive, poor signings.

In the present system we are using we have no option but to play Gestede as non of our forwards can hold the ball up or head the ball as you saw when he went off. Its not his fault he is not good technically its the manager who picks him and I think he is correct and until he brings someone else in he is the best option.

£12m on him and Fletcher [DFS][DFS]

Worst thing about the signing was that he was brought in from a Championship club where he had done nothing; the Villa fans could not believe we had been spanked for £6m.

Dreadful signing.

Are people's opinion of the player changing their perception?

Gestede averages 6.2 aerial duels won per game. No other Boro player is anywhere near, including the two centre backs.

That's more than Jordan Hugill, though Madine and Morrison are good shouts. Britt averages just over 1 per game, which definitely sounds right for him.

The truth is if we want any target up there, Gestede is all we have. The others couldn't head their way out of a paper bag.

I'm of the opinion that to get the best out of Gestede, he needs someone else up there with him. Bamford or Britt, but players need to be close to him to pick up the pieces.

He's never going to be anything more than a decent target man and 6 million is way too much for him, but I don't think he's completely useless - at least not yet anyway! [:D]

"In the present system we are using we have no option but to play Gestede as non of our forwards can hold the ball up or head the ball as you saw when he went off."

pulis is already changing the way we play. a lot less time is spent holding onto the ball, fewer short passes and less possession. players like bamford can hold onto the ball and link up better with other players. but its becoming clear already that pulis is not wanting to play that way, which will explain why bamford wont get much game time under pulis. we will see what alternatives he brings in for players like bamford. see if it makes us a stronger or weaker team.

"Gestede averages 6.2 aerial duels won per game. No other Boro player is anywhere near, including the two centre backs."

This is where stats fall down a bit. Two immediate problems off the top of my head. Firstly, he wins more in the air than other centre forwards because we play differently when he is on the pitch i.e. he has more headers to try and win. I'd like to see the percentage of headers he actually wins rather than the straight total.

Secondly, it's ok winning headers but his multi-directional head sends them spewing all over the show and so whilst he might win a few, they are usually useless for the team. I'd also like to see the proportion that actually resulted in anything remotely positive.

Bamford can control the ball, hold it up and play others in intelligently, in a way Gestede couldn't begin to understand.

Gestede is like David James lumbering forward for a corner.
