I think we would stand a better chance if he wasn’t starting today. I want to get him, Tekkers and Sorloth in a car and drive them off a cliff!

He looked like a small child up against the wall that is Maguire. He is clearly too lightweight to hold the ball up and when he did get through on goal he was generally offside. His lack of confidence showed in the first half when he got in behind the defence and ran away from the goal thus reducing his shooting angle (to save his blushes he was called offside) and then when Townsend laid it on a plate and he side-footed it like a gentle six-inch golf putt.


He hasn't looked happy from day one and I think this is affecting his game. You can't really fault his effort yesterday as he did not stop running, but Sorloth did more in 10 minutes than Ayew achieved. In hindsight Sorloth perhaps should have got the nod, but neither has exactly been lighting the pitch up.

Doesn't look like he wanted to be here at all. Rumours that he refused to train to force a deal didn't sound good. Maybe he expected to be top striker here and clearly hasn't worked out. Not sure what assurances the club gave him as regard this.

It was reported that he just never reported for pre-season training at Swansea so he wasn't part of what Swansea were trying to do under new manager Graham Potter.

At our club he has of course been very disappointing and looks as happy as Mourinho did at Man Utd.

Personally, I've not seen anything from Ayew at either Palace or his former clubs to suggest he has premier League quality, but in fairness to the lad a lot has been said about his 'bad' attitude and he always looks like he tries hard to me and is disappointed with himself when substituted.
He's not an out and out forward and I think he's too lightweight as winger in the premier league. Hodgson might get a better tune using him to chase down and disrupt play in the midfield or try him out as a poacher. He clearly wants to work, so we should try and coach his role before writing him off.
