Is Rodon underrated?

Looks very composed, wins headers and likes a tackle. It’s a shame we didn’t sign him in time to register for more competitions.

I would like to see him get more game time.

I like the look of him from the little I have seen, too early to judge him yet though, he needs to show what he can do after a run in the team

How is he underrated?

How do you have a grasp on how anyone rates him?

Not top 2. Tough to rank behind that, he has an argument for third but hasn’t showcased anything regularly at the top level.

He strikes me as the sort of defender that's a bit cultured and very able to come out of defence, a bit like Jan did. The problem is that Jose doesn't like his defenders doing that so we're not seeing the best of him yet.

I think Dier is appearing to have a good season as he's yet to be fully exposed. We've often played so deep with so much protection, his frailties have yet to be exposed. Terrible with one on ones and his passing is erratic under pressure. I could defend in that team if everyone's doing it.

i think the whole argument is that we should see more of him. Im guessing you would have Dier 2nd? who really isnt very good at all. He has had some decent games this season for sure, some more than decent, mainly in a low block heading away balls into the box.

Rodon 'ceiling' is far higher than Dier's. Remember a few on here going on about Dier passing range would be great in defence, and its his passing which has been totally laughable. He doesnt deserve to be replaced in the team yet though. He does look comfortable defending on the left of the pairing, but he cant kick with his left foot. From what ive seen of Rodon he looks a lot more comfortable on his left foot.

I'm not sure you can confidently assert that really. Based on what? He's 3 years younger but Dier is young for a CB and has only played there a couple of seasons. He's still improving.

Rodon is at Sanchez's level right now. In and out of the team, good performances mixed with the odd howler.

Yeah his passing has been worryingly bad - especially as it was such an asset.

Dier is very good at a certain style of defending - which we are doing currently. Start turning him and his weaknesses show but that’s not happening so tough to criticise.

He did well against the goat herders. Better than Sanchez that's for sure.
