He hasn’t got as many vowels in his name as Mitro, never a good sign.

Hopefully there's a younger Rondon available in the summer.

Can't believe the criticism about Rondon. It was obvious he was a quality player worth going for and far better than Gayle or Mitrovic.

In fairness, he's now a different player from the one a lot of us had seen playing for WBA and his early games for us.

He looks about a stone lighter

Well if you believe the BBC, at least Rondon didn't shoot Jill Dando.

Footballing skills. Also liability to be sent off.

I thought they were pretty similar when they first joined, but Rondon is better than Mitrovic, Mitro has time to get better, like

It's the - "It was obvious he was a quality player worth going for and far better than Gayle or Mitrovic." - that I don't get

I don't think there was anything obvious about it really - he hadn't exactly lit the PL up in his previous 3 seasons & his stats this season certainly don't prove he is far better than Mitrovic

Sod the stats. 5 mins of watching both players and you can tell the difference in quality.

Each to their own - I think the real world judges strikers on their goals like

Rondon isn't a bad player but there is no chance Ashley is gonna sanction another 16mil spend on a 30 year old

RE: SOLAMON RONDON

At the start of the season I can’t see how you could say Rondon was obviously better.

Mitrovic was scoring for fun and Rondon looked slow and puffed out by 60 minutes

RE: SOLAMON RONDON

I wasn't basing it on him being unfit at the start of the season it was when he was playing for West Brom and International matches. Mitrovic might of had a few games where he scored a few but is not someone who you can rely on or up to the level.

RE: SOLAMON RONDON

I get the feeling that Mitro doesn't really want to strictly follow tactical instructions, likes to play how he wants more.

Whereas Rondon will.

I think that's another factor in Rafa's thinking, if you don't follow instructions, bye bye. Which is absolutely right.
