Maybe TP sending him a message that he's not a guaranteed starter and to buck his ideas up.

Shirt off, straight down the tunnel. Didn't look like he wanted to be on the pitch at all either

Was there footage of this. His body language was off when he came on and he didn't chase like he does. In pre-season he constantly looked up for it. Is he just a massive prima donna and throws strops when he doesn't get a start?!

Hopefully it's just frustration that he wasn't starting and it spurs him on to improve his performances. Thought he did ok when he came on, ran at their defence and he nearly scored when his shot was saved well by Begovic to win us a corner.

Playing JRod as the striker forces us to play football more and keep it on the floor.
Going on what I've seen from pre season, Rondon deserves to be 3rd choice atm! HRK has taken his chances in pre season, Rondon hasn't! Simple as!

Don't know. I was at the game and the second the whistle went he ran across the pitch to the tunnel and took his shirt off. Looked to me as though he didn't want to be there at all after coming on. Some very half hearted jogs. Everyone else stayed to clap the fans

I like him but think he will be on his way now we have J Rod.

His head has absolutely gone. Trudging around before he come on, then strolled on late on. Had a great chance and there was a good save but clearly he doesn't want to be here and after Jay-Rods first half performance in particular, he's not going to start. Sell him. 7 goals last season, not good enough.

Just noticed over on instagram that Rondon seems to be liking a lot of Malaga/Rondon comments. I wanted to sell when that Chinese club came in, I really do hope he's on his way and I think Deeney would be a suitable replacement and one I'd be happy with if it came off.

Childish attitude. I hope we learn from the Berahino debacle and take the highest offer on the table now instead of dragging it out until the next transfer window and loosing 30% on the current offer.

After being flush for a few years, aren't Malaga now broke?  Hard to see how they will find £20m for Rondon, and the Chinese have reigned it in significantly.

Shame if he is going to let his attitude spoil things here. He isn't a bad player, does a tough job reasonably well without being as clinical as we would like.

I'd like to see Rondon up front with Jrod on the left and Phillips on the right. Jrod has mostly played up front on the left of a front three. It would also mean McClean as much as I like him would be an impact sub .

If Rondon isn't happy then it's obviously time to get rid, in such a small squad, we can't afford to have players who aren't committed .

An alternative way of looking at it (not saying this is the case, just possible).

Rondon's played pretty much non stop for 2 years since he's been with us. He was left out of one pre season game with Pulis saying Rondon was doing extra work in training so he was left out of that game.

Maybe there's a feeling between management and fitness staff that Rondon will benefit from short spells out of the team (we haven't got enough players to leave him out all together). Maybe it's a different approach to get him a bit sharper when he does play.

Rondon doesn't seem to get injured, doesn't take the offers of extra time off in summer breaks .....obviously doesn't like being left out but we'll see if it pays dividends. It's not necessarily the end of the road for him.

It's to early to make an judgement on Rondon. Was he frustrated at the end of match for missing his chance or coming off the bench late . Neither mean he has a problem with Pulis and his frustration can be taken as a positive that is is unhappy at being dropped and will fight for his place.

I would love to see him and Jay play up front together. Early signs look that Jay could be as good as Berahino when not on drugs.

Just found that he started follow "WBA" (the club official account) on instagram 1 hour ago, I think he is not going to leave.

Thought Rondon was unlucky with his chance yesterday and at least the keeper had to make a save.

His general demeanour though was the same as the back end of last season, I noticed when he lost the ball or the player he was marking passed the ball, he just lumbered about whereas when Rodriguez was on he was trying to close down the opposition defenders.

If we do sell him we need to get a replacement in first or at least have an agreement with a replacement.

As for his reaction at the end, didn't he have a sulk at Swansea too?

If there is a falling out between player and coach just get rid there is no way back for a player as we all know from experience. However if the player is unhappy but it doesn't trigger a full blown row with Pulis carry on.

However this does highlight a problem around squad depth. No player of any quality will be happy being our 3rd choice striker for any length of time. If it is Rondon we can hold him for a season and then it's probably time to move on.

At best we can hope to have two good strikers but then the minutes have to be split fairly evenly the third is always a bit of a make weight and as for a fourth or fifth choices that some posters seem to think we need pointless.

Much falling out with footballers and coach not good. For someone to throw a shirt in view of supporters is criminal . Get rid. Never rated him anyway. HRK over him any day

If he did throw his shirt then it's not good......but at least he's upset at not playing as opposed to refusing to play which we are seeing in some places at the moment.

As long as there's no melt down I doubt he'll stay 3rd choice for long....bit of rotation could be healthy. Instead of him trudging through every game, hopefully he'll be hungrier and sharper when he does play.

A bit over the top all this. Clearly he was just dissappointed not to start the first game of the season.  Nothing wrong with that. We need competition for places so we'd be crazy to let him go. I actually think we'll see a fresher and better Rondon now he doesn't have to play the whole season without a rest.

At the end of the day it's the shirt we all support, it's like a flag of a country if you like.

It disrespectful throwing it on the floor, I would expect a public apology at least, or he
