wonder if the Chinese will come back in with another offer, they throw silly money at any player they want these days. we are so light in the striker dept but is there a figure that would tempt us to sell? £32m was a crazy amount and it wouldn't surprise me if they increase it.

Read somewhere that he risks kidnap at home. Also that his family are not allowed to leave for fear of reprisals against THEIR family.

Not a very pleasant place to be a success Venezuela by all accounts.
Can't be easy relaxed focused fully and playing at the top of his game for the big guy with the worry of safety for his family on his mind constantly and so far away

Taken fro the Oatcake after the game

"What a performance from Rondon. That's how you play a lone centre forward role. Sometimes you hold your hands up and say well done."

I love the bloke, does not always make the right decision and he certainly isnt a predatory finisher but in our team he is excellent. Give me a player like this every day of the week over the nonsense we just got rid of.

He was absolutely superb today. Costa aside there is no one better at the role he plays.

As much as he had an ok game today, think he still goes down too easy for a big bloke. Also missed a few decent chances today that you'd fancy him to score.

Showed some good pace towards the end and did everything right for Livermore's chance

Excellent performance today. Such a shame he didn't get the goal his play deserved. His hold up play was different class.

Worked really hard but I thought he was poor. Other than his fantastic burst and pass to Livermore, his passing wasn't up to scratch. Still played his part in a solid team win.

He held the ball up really well today.  Even the stokies are saying the ball stuck to him like glue.

Not sure what happened with the sub but it was the right decision to keep him on. He had a few more bits of work to get through and helped ease the pressure towards the end.

Wouldn't it be beneficial to bring his family over ? Could the club help with this ?

Not sure what game you were watching tbh pal. His hold up play and strength in protecting the balls up to him were superb. The Stoke fans are raving about him on the Oatcake and even Mark Hughes gave him a mention (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04rwyz5).

Not sure what else you want from a lone striker?

Massive performance by Ron today on how the role "Lone Forward" should be played.
Can i ask if the Played onside rule still apply, i mean he was offside for the goal he scored but it came off a stokie player

What a battle he had with Shawcross to.

Anyone who doesn't rate this guy doesn't watch enough football. We won't be able to sign anyone better for the role he plays.

If he was more clinical with his feet then he wouldn't be here, the same reason why Diego Costa isn't.

Was surprised by a couple of fans around me who moaned about him throughout the game. He was being bear hugged by Shawcross and Martins-I most of the game. Sometimes it pays to look at what he does compared to the opposition central attackers....he does put in a hell of a shift and gets us into the right areas.

He also brings into play his team mates

I honestly cannot understand the criticism of Rondon by some people. He is a completete beast. I read other fans forums after we have played them, just out of interest really, but almost all of them wish they had Rondon. I love the guy

Yeah, and I've read their comments on the Oatcake. He ran after every ball and gave 100% but I just felt he lacked quality in the final third. There were moments when we had great counter attack opportunities but his choice of pass let him down. I do agree though in a team where it really is a 'lone forward', it is thankless task.

He had a terrifically lucky break when he got his hayrick but still didn't kick on,love the guy and his attitude but he will never be any better than what he is now but still a keeper with another forward who is a bit better and will hopefully push him on a bit more
