The thing is you cannot simply “replace them” - yes the squad may appear thin but it is numbers limited.

It is the reason for the legitimate concerns about Wilshere. The injury is not such an issue with Lanzini as you know he will be gone until at least January, probably most of the season so you can buy someone or get a loan in to take his place in the 25. With Carrol and Reid’s “3 month” injuries they are still going to command a squad place as otherwise you cannot play them until at least January and if they are fit then what will you do with the replacements? To have 160k a week in wages or the better part of £7.5-8m a year not just out injured or sitting on the bench but actually incapable of ever contributing is not going to happen.

It effects all the planning as well, if we suddenly go for Rondon we may need to either abandon another non-homegrown target or sell one we already have (and Reid is no longer an option) over and above those we have probably planned for if the 3 further arrivals are correct.

Rondon ain’t a superstar but he nets 8/9 goals a season in a team permanently down the bottom of the league notorious for not creating chances. He puts himself about, makes runs inbehind and bullies defenders. He’s not ‘next level’ or anything but he’d do a job and be a decent signing for the right price. Wouldn’t mind him as back up to Arnie/Hernandez.

Any chance of getting Danny Ings either loan or loan to buy, Another Hernandez type poacher.

He's scored 1 in 4.5 in a Tony Pulis team compared to big Andy's 1 in 3.75. When managed at Malaga by our current Manager he scored 1 in 2.7 which ain't too shabby for a player we can pick up for around £10-15m Also unlike Mr Fitness he's usually available for selection.

Carroll and Hugill isn’t a great selection but Rondón an upgrade? Not a chance

That's more what you've read than what you've seen. His overall contribution come the end of the match is ALOT more than his goals.
I'm not saying he should be starting by any stretch but to fill Carroll void easily and yes he is better than Hugill no question.

I'd be more than happy with Rondon. Always seemed a handful.

Teodorczyk available for £10m, supposedly, from Anderlecht. 15 in 40 for them last season, 30 in 53 the year before.

Be perfect as a Carroll replacement.

I like Rondon. 9, 8 and 7 goals in his 3 previous seasons for West Brom, who aren’t exactly the most attacking side in the world. Pretty solid return for a relegation battling team (admittedly they finished 10th one of those years, but you get my point)

Holds the ball up, good injury record, previously worked with Pellegrini, seems a nice bloke. Yes from me!

If we get more than £15 million for Antonio I'll be amazed.

For Antonio read Sakho.

Take out his purple patch (Payet patch) and he has been stark average and injury ravaged. But he’s English so people tend to overegg how good he is.

15 goals in 2016, 3 in 2017, 2 in 2018.

Iv seen him play too, he holds the ball up quite well I mean for that and the price West Brom would want for him it’s just not worth it

It’s one thing scoring 8 - 9 goals a season consistently for West Brom but that’s over 30+ games a season playing second fiddle to Arnie and Chicharito I doubt he’d ever really be threatening the opposition net making 4 - 5 starts a season injury permitting

I hope I'm not giving him (and his team) too much credit but it feels like Allardyce, Bilic and Moyes were happy to throw Carroll and Reid in to the team then deal with the injuries when they happen.

Sounds like Pellegrini has actually ordered them to find out what's causing all of this and having surgery to try and prevent it happen again, rather than nursing them for a few games and them limping off.

I’m fairly sure Rondon has a fairly reasonable release clause in his West Brom contract. That would be the appeal. Cheap, proven back up that the manager knows well.

I understand your point, I'd counter that with it could well be Chicharito that sits on the bench he has a lot to do to prove he deserves a starting place for me.

He does, depending on reports it's between £8-16m. Guess we'll find out if Pellegrini still rates him or not soon enough.
