If Gestede had been a free transfer on 5-10k a week, we'd all have been much more forgiving of his various quality/fitness issues. As it is, he has to go down as by far the worst signing ever made by MFC. Good luck to him in his next club, absolutely no hard feelings towards him but glad he is off the books.

Seems Rudy was also not willing to extend beyond June 30th.

Very telling in that article that club has not wished either player all the best for the fture like they normally do when a player departs.

At least Rudy came back and tried to play out his contract. This sounds more like a move that the club has made to take him out of the squad for the final few games if he's not gonna play in all of them. Rational decision on all sides, I think.

Them not wishing Gestede well though? Guess it doesn't mean that much really but I can't see what he's done wrong since he's joined, in professional terms. He's had the off game here and there and a blip at Newport was it? But generally speaking I think he's played the best he could and worked hard. It's not his fault the club was daft as *** and offered him a huge Prem salary when we didn't need him, well within his rights to stick around to see the contract out when it's doubtful he'll ever get paid that much again. Will hopefully teach the club a lesson about spending a ton of money on crap players. Unlike Ayala, he did come back and play too...

Spot on, mate. Lot of hate coming his way at the moment and I get the feeling he's actually a decent bloke for whatever that's worth.

You have to ask why the hell Woodgate picked Gestede given he was leaving before the next game. Another example of Woodgate’s utter incompetence.

In fairness Gestede has look pretty good his last few games for us (or at least not as bad as the rest of the team) and I think Woody had to go with whoever he thought could get us points in the now.

That's Ayala and Gestede both gone. If the figures are remotely close to being accurate for the pair of them that's between £50k-£60k per week off the wage bill.

Maybe Gestede hadn't told him or maybe Gestede was gonna stay if Woody did? Or, not sure about the feasibility of this, maybe the club offered him a lower wage to stay on in the last few days?

I think it's strange that he'd pick Gestede if he knew he was leaving but maybe it's not as clear cut as he picked him knowing he was leaving.

Yeah but then we can’t use it as a stick to beat him with 😉

We're about to kick off and people can't even wait until we've conceded to have a moan! 😄

Ok, so are you defending Woody’s decision to pick Gestede in his last few days at the club?

Maybe Gestede was never going to stay beyond the end of June and Woodgate picked him anyway because he's not very good at his job.  Pretty sure I posted something I'd read on COB that suggested Gestede didn't want to stick around.

Neither condemning or defending. There’s a multitude of reasons he may have picked him. Like I said in my initial reply to your post. I think Woody had to get points on the board immediately and if he thought Gestede could do that then he plays regardless
