Brilliant .... Jordan Rhodes

Recommended Posts

I'm the first to admit I have been banging on for years to get him signed (old Huddersfield days) but really thought I had made a mistake. I hope he really kicks on from this

If we get that pacy winger and quality target Rhodes needs, we could go up next season.

 

Of course, a big stopper is also a must to defend in t'air.

Well you accept it hasn’t quite worked out yet , why is that if he is such a class striker ? So how do we play to his strengths exactly ? Anyway you rate him and I am not convinced by him , can’t all agree can we !!! 

 

I think I’ve clearly explained my opinions. 

 

No we can’t always agree

83 championship goals in 159 appearances for Blackburn up until 2016 makes me believe he's a quality striker. I'd love him to be at the club next season. I hope he starts the next three games and shows Wednesday fans his true class. 

Wednesday started the season with seven strikers - certainly two too many, if not three. I hope we trim the squad and build around quality. 

I admire Atdhe Nuhiu, and am grateful for his goals since Jos arrived, but I sense and fear,  that many would like to see him stay ahead of Rhodes next season. That's a mistake and I hope Jos perseveres with Rhodes.

Jordan Rhodes confidence must have been @RocketOwl low for ages. 

So glad he has got a start and scored a decent goal. Hopefully it will continue .

He didn't decide his transfer fee so the criticism about that is unfair . He has had a lot of criticism on here but also plenty of support from true supporters. 

Jos will have a big dilema in choosing his strikers in the future. 

He only got a start due to Joao and Nuhiu injuries though.

I'd go with Nuhiu...Sorry...I would love Rhodes to do well, but if it came to stick or twist...I'd go Adthe

I honestly don't think it proves that...Its like sayin' 

"If it sits up for Reach..he will hit it in from 30yds against Villa"....its simply a one off..

I hope it gives him the confidence, which I believe has been the major problem.

Being the most expensive player at a club, must bring pressure, some revel in that, some are intimidated...

i reckon Jordan is of the latter, 

I hope he clicks, but I'm not hanging my hat on it, nor am I gonna slate him out of hand if it doesn't click

Which in itself is a positive and shows how much Atdhe has developed and how Jos has got the best out of him.

Up until joining us Rhodes had been a proven striker (Middlesborugh an exception) . As much as we are all pleased with the progress under Jos, both Nuhiu and Joao had not been anywhere near him in the goal scoring department. Many on here had ridiculed both of them for their lack of goals.

If Jos can get him back to his former goal scoring then he will be a huge asset next season. We had to wait for Nuhiu and Joao to get going so hopefully Rhodes will carry on getting back to his obvious ability.

To say he is past it is ridiculous. Jos appears to have man management skills that our previous manager lacked.

Lets all look forward to Rhodes banging in a few goals in the next few games.

But Blackburn paid a fortune for him and he didn’t have a problem with the pressure there.

 

I don’t know. I really really hope he can turn it around for us.

I hope so mate. Just got a feeling, or possibly just dreaming, that Rhodes will be an absolute Wednesday legend in 12 month's time as we get promoted.

If it's true that the club were looking to offload JR in January, then it's fair to say it will seek to do so again in the summer. I doubt we can afford him any longer.

I'm with you on that Cockers and i'm certain many many more will be of the same feeling. 

We really want Rhodes to succeed . He has got the ability it just needs getting out.

NO, NO, NO !!

 

The bare minimum at this level would be 5. Preferably I'd have 6, although it might be advisable for one of them to be in a position where he would accept not playing often without too much fuss (like a developing younger player). When you consider that two of our current strikers are usually good for a 25-50% absence rate, only having four would be even more ridiculous. Bear in mind that you often name 4 strikers in each matchday 18. Just one injury and you're suddenly lacking in options. Also, there is not the extended loan windows that there used to be for emergency situations.

He still averaged a goal every 194 minutes at Middlesbrough.

 

The only team he's struggled to score for in many a year is us, unfortunately...


15/16 for Blackburn: a goal every 218 minutes
14/15 for Blackburn: a goal every 167 minutes
13/14 for Blackburn: a goal every 161 minutes
12/13 for Blackburn: a goal every 144 minutes

 

If Luhukay can get Nuhiu and João scoring at a better rate than we previously dared dream, then there's always a chance he could get Rhodes back to his best.

His Huddersfield stats would be interesting. Any chance?

Now THAT'S the Rhodes I remember from a few seasons ago.

 

If he can get back to this on a regular basis he's a 20/25 goals a season player. He also contributed well in all other areas on Saturday, not least in his defensive duties.

 

Please, please show us you can keep it up, Jordan.

Regular quality service to strikers is something we’ve struggled to address for a long time, one of Carlos’ flaws unfortunately
