Rhodes pessimists in minority

If Fletcher can get 15 last season in an indifferent team there's no reason why Rhodes can't better that over a season if we can get the midfield thriving. He's a confidence player and if we start well he'll take off like a rocket.

Is there some hidden meaning there TrueOwl? WTF:

I like being different!

 

Anyway, I predict Rhodes to get 14 goals. I really like him but doubt we will play him enough, and to his strengths, to hit 20.

 

Other strikers:

Hooper: 5

Fletcher: 6

Forestieri: 9

Winnall: 4

Joao: 2

Nuhiu: 0

What ????. Nuhiu 0 zero nil none? 

I find that hard to believe. 

I like him but......

3 goals in 17 games (13 starts) so far. Doesn't really fill me with much confidence that he can get 20+. Apart from the odd game where he’s flourished, he’s not been convincing since he’s arrived. His contribution/performances have been poor to say the least. 

 

Carlos needs to get the best out of him and find a way of playing to his strengths. Honestly, I'm not sure he can utilise that.

Considering every contributor on OT thinks Carlos needs to change his tactics to play to Rhodes obvious ability then why oh why can't Carlos see It? Perhaps this season he will. 

It shouldn't take much of a tweak to get Jordan on the scoring Roads (pun intended).

The squad is almost good enough . The fans are ready for a New Carlos.

Please do it CC and you will be a Wednesday Legend. .

Didn't want to start a new thread with this question because then the question wouldn't be needed.........

 

Why is there no matchday thread for the Donny Rovers game that kicks off in 3 hours? Are we all waiting for somebody else to do it?

Fail!

I know nothing about this.

Unsubstantiated reports.

I'm happy with my present club.

Me and the chairman are both on holiday.

My fear is he won't be a regular starter under Carlos. I think his preferred front 2 will be Fletcher and Hooper when both fit.

 

Which, based on the way we played last season, is absolutely, without doubt our best combination.

 

Unless we change the way we attack, I cannot see Rhodes starting, or if he does, scoring goals.

I don't care how many friggin goals he scores, as long as he contributes to Wednesday's success. To listen to some of the freaks on here, you'd think Jordan Rhodes was more important than the team. It's laughable that some can accuse me of revelling in his failure, when I never even had those unrealistic expectations in the first place He may appear a failure if you were one of those who expected him to get 15-20 goals last season, but to the rest of his, he came in, did his job, and was part of the group who got to the play offs. I don't get all this hysterical X Factor adulation stuff from grown men, it does my nut in

First we need our best players fit. I mean 100% match fit not having to manage them through from game to game.

 

Then we need centre back sorted so we play knowing that our back 4 can cope

 

Then I expect Carlos to start this season same as last. Which contrary to what some on here think was very positive, playing good football.

 

Then we need a bit of luck so that good football turns into points.

Not like early last season where we didn't turn good performances into wins.

 

Then Rhodes will start scoring, everybody will be buzzing and the momentum will build 

 

Easy peasy

Jordan Rhodes has the pedigree, transfer fee and wages to be a top goal scorer in the Championship this season.

To speak plainly now is the time for him to prove it.

Now is the time for the manager to set up the side to give him the service....Rhodes as nothing to prove in this league.

Not read all the posts on here, but (if not suggested already)..why run a concurrent vote on OT for comparison purposes with the Star, on the JR goals Scored... 

A direct correlation of results should either confirm if OT comprises of people who just talk BS. 

 

Caveat: flip side on the hand,  is that the Star voters may also comprise of people that vote BS.

Unless we change the way we play, Rhodes won't get much more than 10 goals, because he won't play all that often.

 

The way in which we played last season, suits a combination of Fletcher/Hooper. 

 

However, if we look to get to the byline and get balls into the box, like a couple of goals have been in pre-season so far, then Rhodes could end up been prolific. 

 

Rhodes isn't the variable. It's how we play. Play to his strengths, he'll get goals. Don't, and he won't. Simple as that.
