    The whole team played well today Rhos
    The defence to a man superb and Raul was totally selfless played a great team game

    Proven goalscorers in the PL cost more than that though. What we do know is Jimenez fits us brilliantly, works his **** off and provides assists as well as goals. Think it's a £30m option? (Plus the £5m for his loan). I'd sign him permanently, I mean we've seen sides spend £30m on the likes of Benteke and Slimani, I'd take Jimenez over both of those every time

    That’s true, I saw a middle aged bloke (younger than me) running through TKMax car park the other day who looked like Pamela Anderson the way they were wobbling round in their own separate orbits but the effect was not as good.

    I'm sure that if you look hard enough, you'll find instances when Messi, Ronaldo (both of them), Aguero, Suarez etc.etc. have also missed "sitters".

    The benfica fans on their forum say that he is worth 20 million tops as he doesn't score enough goals. Jiminez is also 28 and his value will soon begin going down.

    Shows even more so how the 4 million Leo deal was a strange one given his level of ability compared to Raul. Yes he’s back up but he’s a million miles away from the standard of Raul. Let’s hope he keeps fit for a month and a half and hopefully a new forward will emerge in early Jan

    What we need to understand is when dealing with Mendes, transfer fees are completely irrelevant. If we buy Jimenez for £30m, we’d probably get someone like Grimaldo for £5m as a bonus.

    I don’t understand how some cannot see that Jimenez is an excellent finisher as well. We just need to give him the chances

    Agreed. He has missed one or two he should have scored, but as has already been mentioned, so have players like Aubameyang.

    As he plays through the middle then another central striker may not be top of our list. Unless we can get them both on the pitch together.
    A goal scoring wide player may be more to our needs.

    His ball for Jota was bang on the money and wasn’t easy. He works his *******s off and oozes quality. Absolutely love him.

    Point is he’s took some chances, would have more had he not been denied by some excellent goalkeeping, and admittedly missed a couple.

    He’s doing what is expected of him. Our wide forwards misfiring so far are the cause of our lack of goals.

    In the PL it's a different market as daft as it might sound. At 27 though he's fine for his next contract. He could serve us very well for the next four years and in the grand scheme of things if you're paying £9m a year for an effective forward it's job done

    That’s a good point tbh. One that I forget myself sometimes. We can’t get a 5m moutinho every transfer

    Yeah it’s all sort of fake values really as it makes it’s way back around the carousel with his teams helping each other out.

    Talking of Grimaldo though, I’d rip their arm off for him at any price think he will be considered one of the best left backs in the world in 3-5 years time

    They are right imv. He is doing very well for us, suits the system etc but he is not going to score more than 10 goals this season.
    Of course you can spread goals around and we need more from Costa and Jota on that front. But if we are aiming to be top six we somehow need to find another striker in the kind of Jermain Defoe mould who has a naturally cool head in front of goal.

    If we had had one already we could have scored at least another six goals this season which might have equated to another 9 points or so.
    Jiminez for around £20m ok (not more especially considering his age) - he is a very handy player to have - but we must sign another central striker asap to complement him especially as our luck on injuries won't last forever. This is the next step in our evolution as a top 10 team.

    Yet another assist for Raul Jimenez @ Arsenal yesterday with Cav's goal. Plus he laid it on a plate for Jota to score also in the second half but unfortunately he couldn't convert his chance.
    Put it the other way around and ask the question..How many times have Costa and Jota assisted or crossed the ball for Jimenez to score a goal this season so far?? If they had more maybe Raul Jimenez would be a bit nearer to double figures by now?

    He has been excellent and would have four goals now if that idiot hadnt flagged offside last week. Combined with his assists an excellent signing so far. We now need the other attacking players to put in consistently good performances and come up with more assists and goals starting against Huddersfield in a couple of weeks. We need another attacking player in January though.

    Made a superb pass whilst practically on the floor to Cav I think in the first half... played well.

    I don’t think Jimenez is the problem at all. Have to look at it in the round - during a game we can call on him, Costa, Cav, Traore and Jota. All that matters is how many goals the five get between them.

    He is not worth £37m. But then Traore is not worth £7m yet we paid three times that for him.

    He’s been directly involved with a serious amount of goals.

    Forget any talk of a price tag, he’s doing a bloody great job - with or without a boot!

    Impossible not to love, works his **** off and is very intelligent football who creates so many chances. Obviously he isn't a natural goalscorer, but as many have said before if he was he'd be playing for Real Madrid because he has everything else.

    If we do have big funds in January I'd love us to have a look at Maxi Gomez at Celta Vigo. Big, quick and great target man with 2 good feet. Goalscoring record is better than Raul and he also has a nastiness/edge which we are probably lacking a bit. Diego Costa type.

    We havent scored a serious amount of goals though. In fact we have only managed 1 more than the other 2 promoted teams, Cardiff and Fulham.

    I rate your opinion on here but sorry I have to disagree. Give him the chances and he will score more than 10. He is a better finisher than he is being credit for iMO

    I’d ignore him it’s just an excuse to have a dig at Traore and probably one of those who said we overpaid for Cav.

    Jiminez is a wonderful footballer doing himself and his team proud. I think he’s doing great.

    I’m surprised Jimenez is so polarising! Definitely one of my favourites of our current lot
