Rudy Gestede and the on-going injury saga.

Except you didn't spell it out as an opinion to begin with, did you. You simply said he is faking injury. With nothing to base it on other than thinking it's a bit like one other player who may have done the exact same thing, which is a tenuous link at best. You're tarring him with the same brush surely for no other reason than he's a footballer who has contributed very little to our club and if the thousands of supporters of fans who see him as a total fraud started pointing the finger in the direction of the person actually responsible for that rather than booing him on and off the pitch and giving him abuse based on made up facts, maybe something would change.

What a great idea 👏

Lets be nice to him and he will turn into a 30 goal machine next season with a contract extension ✍️

You start the tweet #letsbenicetoRudy

and tell me how you get on 👍

the thing with Gestede is that if he ever could stay fit and benefit from an actual run of games, I think he'd be pretty useful in the championship. But obviously he's not going to stay fit.. he had a dodgy reputation for injuries before we signed him and it's just going from bad to worse now.

He has been injured 10 times since May 2016 🙄

If he isnt faking then maybe football isnt for him anymore, maybe he could try flower arranging

The staggering amount of injuries this bloke has apparentely had leads me to think he has no intention of putting on a Boro shirt again on a matchday

I cannot help but see the uncanny similarities with Rodwell who seems to doinv OK now 🤔 he left the Mackems and bled them for as much as possible 

Maybe i,m wrong 

He sounds like Woodgate was when he was a player.

Ten injuries since May 2016. Coincidentally, he's scored ten goals since May 2016. And been given ten cards.*

His signing-on fee was between £6 and £7 million, which works out at £650,000 per goal, quite apart from his weekly wage.

I'd like to meet the person in the MFC hierarchy who thought that was a good deal at the time (spoiler alert, it wasn't Aitor), and put his balls in a vice and slowly tighten them until I heard a crunch.
