I've always liked him since he reacted in such a sincere, regretful way to accidentally breaking James McCarthy's leg a few years ago. Sure he was brought to tears on the pitch having realised what happened. Clearly a sound bloke, would work well under the guidance of Rafa.

I could live with Regards Rondon if they do upgrade our wide attacking options as has been mooted. Kenedy and Townsend behind him would be decent. Would still prefer to see another though.
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

He's a better bet than Jorgensen and probably Slimani too.

Rafa will make Rondon a key player. His off the ball running and hold up play will make him vital to us.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

We still need a striker who can score goals. Ayoze was our highest scorer at 8 goals and unless Rondon can bring out any goal-scoring miracle in those behind him, we will need better.

That's the going rate for players of his ability. Replacement for Mitro - fine with that. I just hope we go after another striker, but I've got a feeling this will be it.

Based on his physicality? Very strong, reasonably fast and dominant in the air. I mean yeah, his goal tally is less than impressive sure, but the service he's been receiving has been dire. The guy never stops too, and reading West Brom fans' opinions on him seem to confirim that he's got a great attitude; they love him.

Like I said, for 18 odd million or whatever he's decent value even at 28. Lesser players will go for more this summer.

No chance we are breaking our transfer record on Rondon, then going after another striker to play ahead of him. This will be it sadly.

I like him, obviously I’d rather have someone more expensive and more exciting but this is Newcastle under Mike Ashley.

When will people realise that it’s not so much about how prolific a striker is, but what he brings to the team in terms of his game and Robson would seem to be a good fit.

He's a bag of w***.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.

Really don't see the point of replacing a player like Mitro for a player like Mitro albeit more mobile
Haven't seen too much of Rondon tbh but looks an upgrade on what we've got. Likely not the 20+ goal scorer we have sorely been missing for years though which is the difference between lower half scrapping to upper safety every year. As mention this is the grim reality of our club under Ashley. Benitez has and a lost of players that would excite the s*** out of us and him and are willing to come to the club. The club is only willing to fund the c list.

Regarding Mitro it wasn't his style of play that stopped him getting picked here. If we get a more teachable and compliant version of Mitro with extra pace I would be happy.

The problem is, the second you start spending 25m on a striker they expect to get 90/100k a week and we simply aren't paying that.

Rondon might get 80k and that's our ceiling, I reckon.

Not good enough to be our main striker or main asset purchase. We need a 15+ goals a season striker  and he falls way short of that ability imo.
May be a good worker but we surely must be able to find better value somewhere.

But... he's not though.

He is though. Zenit had no trouble replacing him with Russian League forwards and he's been nothing but average for West Brom. One of the main reasons they finished bottom of the league last season was his lack of goals.

He's not really developed as a player technically since he came through, a blunt instrument with limited ability. He's more mobile than Mitrovic, but other than that he'd barely be an upgrade.
