Rondon really is a tremendous physical presence, while still being mobile and pretty athletic. I really like his potential to really help Ayoze be an even better player. His physicality and hold up play will benefit Perez so much.

This will prove to be a really great move if it goes through.

He's a bag of w***.

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 an upgrade.

I disagree. That's like saying Mitrovic was one of the main reasons we went down a few seasons ago. It was clearly the management, s**** defending and lack of creativity over Mitrovic's goalscoring.

Think Rondon has shown he's a more than useful player and I'd back Rafa to get him firing into double figures. Wasn't far off last season under awful management in a terrible team.

Think he's OK, but given what Rafa did with Diame he could be like a combination of Lukaku and Ronaldo this time next year  :)

He’s ok and that’s it but was hoping we would sign a striker we could be excited about, silly me

Hear this so many times at the bottom with strikers that if you put them in a better team then they'll score more goal, doesn't really work out like that.  Rondon would barely improve us imo, we need someone who can score goals as we showed we can create them in the 2nd half of last season.

.

We won’t pay the going the rate for one though so we have to kind of compromise and look at players who could improve how we play and hope others get enough goals to compensate for lack of a goal scorer.

This is a wind up, right?

Are they teasing us each season, Joselu was a punishment, and now we are having the p*ss took out of us again with this?

Has to be a wind up.


One way not to get season tickets renewed. So underwhelming.

Selling Mitrovic and signing Rondon with the money seems like a waste of time to me. I would be disappointed.

I hope he does sign now tbh, he's been way underrated in here it seems. I watched him a fair bit over the last season and he was consistently West Brom's best player. Ended the season with something like 10 goals and 4 assists in a team which rarely won matches. Yes he's not exactly clinical, but £16m is a great fee for him. The whole transfer record thing is purely academic.

I'm shocked by this as well :lol:

Rondon is an absolute terror. Such a fantastic presence up front. Genuinely think that he would make us a much better team.

I could see him getting at least 15 goals, and his general play allowing those around him to get more goals too.

He'd suit us perfectly. He'd make us so much more intimidating higher up the pitch. Shocked anyone would compare him to Joselu. That is just crazy. That guy is so mild.

The comparisons to Mitrovic are understandable but from what I've seen, Rondon knows how to use his strength a lot better. He's also more mobile.

I think he's alright and would be a decent enough signing. Would be great if he was one of two striking imports.

You would have to be off your tits thinking he will get 15 playing for us.

Why?? He has never once managed it in all his years playing anywhere??
At best he can certainly be described as a hard working player, well woop dee f***ing doo.

Mitrovic really is a tremendous physical presence, while still being mobile and pretty athletic. I really like his potential to really help Ayoze be an even better player. His physicality and hold up play will benefit Perez so much.

This will prove to be a really great move if it goes through.

If he could score 10 for that West Brom team, he will score 15 for us easily.

The number of chances we threw away last season man. You must be joking!

Check his record for Zenit, when he was actually on a team with talent around him.

Mitro has good presence too, but nothing like Rondon's IMO.

Rondon also runs the channels and can run with the ball at his feet to far better effect. He is a mobile striker.

Really like him everytime I see him play. Guy is great in the air, has a powerful shot on him, and puts himself about. His hold up play is top notch too.

Better team and direction and he will get goals and help the team score more too I believe.

Guess we will see. No point arguing over this. Time will tell.
