If all Rhodes lead to promotion..

Recommended Posts

How come he's scored more goals than Pele and only had one promotion in his career, when you could argue the job was already done. 

 

He isn't what we need. We need balance in the midfield and 90 minute displays. The players we have are good enough. Let them play! 

 

Hopper and Fletch are good enough to get us out this league.

Pele - 1,283 goals.

 

Jordan Rhodes - 188 goals.

We clearly need another non scoring lump and more full backs 

 

... To play Yorkshire style football

Oh you took it as gospel about the more goals than Pele, sweet. 

 

Gotta create to score, we don't create. How does Rhodes solve that?

We are the 6th lowest scorers in the division . Id say Rhodes is Absolutely what we need.  

 

When I see comments like this I always think back to 89-90. We had possibly our best ever strike partnership with Hirst and Atkinson. I think we scored twice in the first ten games.

We brought in a midfielder and a fullback and we started scoring. Then a second fullback. Although we were relegated, due to an end of season collapse, it wasn't due to inadequate forwards or lack of goals.

The problem then, as today, was our inability to create the chances for our forwards. 

There have been a few posts recently knocking our fullbacks. As we use fullbacks for a major part of our attacking style, perhaps they have a point.

My point exactly.

What a brilliant post. Rhodes plays like Hooper, given the chance he will score. Said many of times, we don't create enough! How many shots did we have combined against Preston/Wolves? Not a lot. Wallace last year created more chances than anybody, hasn't created a fraction of that this year.

Means nothing without the minutes per goal stats.

Perhaps if we had more creativity from wide positions even big Dave would score more.

As fifth choice forward, costing a small fraction of what Rhodes would cost, I think it would be more productive to stick with Nihiu and invest elsewhere. [Unless we can do both].

He's worth about 12 extra points.

 

Its the value you attribute to those points.

If you watch Fletcher during the game he'll look to roll off the defenders and you can actually see him pointing were he wants the ball played. However, the player with the ball invariably passes it out to the wing and that's our biggest problem because crosses are wee wee-easy to defend against
