Seen rumours he's wanted by Sheffield Wednesday

They could have done with him today - their only threat came when they brought Forestieri and Nuhiu on and lumped it along route 1 - and Ayala just gobbled most of that up.

His all round game isn't good enough for that level. 

Who can you see that is willing to play with 10 men trying to create chances while he skips about? 

Might be wrong. Just don't think he's good enough. Luxury player. 

I'm sure he'd shine again at Boro who can afford little luxuries

Bamford either left or leaving Palace and has indicated to Chelsea he wants to go back out on loan elsewhere.

My money's on a return to Boro which wouldn't be the best news for us.

Boro have too many forwards. Boss man also loves rotation. He would be lucky if he got to start a dozen games there.

Without being funny, he's basically very similar to Ince in our system and we do have Tom Ince. He'd have to fight off Ince, Russell and Weimann to get in the team and Ince has equivalent ability whilst the other 2 have the legs and work rate. I wouldn't say no, Bamford is a very good championship forward, but we can't offer him a starting birth, he'd have to earn it and I wouldn't break my heart if he went somewhere else. As for playing him in a 2 up with Martin or Bent, I think all our wide forwards think they're best in that position, so he'd have the same fight in that system. 

I think Boro would be where he'd play his best and be happy, but the desire to be in the top flight might be decisive.

McClaren loved him to and would love to get another flakey but talented luxury player in to shore up Newcastle's team of flakey luxury players who just need a bit of individual occasional talent to really kick on.....
