he would have been ok alongside another central striker, something all season we haven't had except a barely fit Kozak

he wins a lot of flick ons and a more dynamic striker would work well off him winning the 2nd balls. a player like Defoe or even Long would have added a lot more threat next to him.

sadly we have Gabby :(

Didn't Gestede get like 20 goals in 7 seasons before his good year? Worrying.

11 goals in 5 seasons before he has that great season for Blackburn, but a lot of players take some time to adapt to a league or find out what they do best. I am not too worried about his form when he was young. Some players just find form later on in their careers.

I have probably said it a few times on here already but I have no faith at all he will do it for us next season. I reckon he is a one season wonder. I hope someone is highlighting this comment 12 months from now as he bangs I his 25th but I have seen him miss enough good opportunities for us,  rare as they have been,  to make me very concerned. 

Added to which I think even in the second division we will need more than a completely one dimensional striker to do well. His passing and control and dribbling is not going to suddenly improve just because he is up against poorer defenders

yep

and cardiff would have had peter whittingham crossing to him too

He was a bit part player at Cardiff and then they went up to the prem so wisely they decided to let him go to Blackburn where he flourished.

I don't want him starting every week next season (I fear the club will repeat the mistake of this season and think he's good enough to lead the line) but I don't see the issue with him being an impact sub, he's had some good games off the bench this season at least and I'm certainly not a fan but can concede that.
