Well maybe keep him if we go down, his goals could be useful in League One

Good point, he'll surely hit some better form and could get his confidence back.

 

...but let's hope we stay in champ

He's a busted flush imo, footballs moved on and he's a relic of the past

 

He'll never hit 10 league goals again in a season in anything above the Championship

I’m genuinely trying to think of the last time we put a ball into the box that Rhodes might have got on the end of. I’m really struggling. He doesn’t score the Joao 25 yarders, or the FF quick one-twos around the box.

 

His Norwich Goals have been typical Rhodes goals, but they don’t exist with our team and approach.

 

Sell and get a pair of strong full-backs.

Yep. Most of our goals are 30/40 yard screamers Joao's being typical at Blackburn. We can count the number of chances we create in any match inside the box from open play on two or three fingers. Was the same in CC's last season, Jos has just kept it going. Rhodes does not fit into our style of play. So we either sell him or employ a manager who knows how to create bucket loads of chances, then Rhodes will score.

Yeah but a big wage bill off the books..what we desperately need to do

Yeah I know why but it’s annoying as he’s fit and able and we are lumbered with Hutchinson , hooper, lee , abdi etc etc on big wages and offer nothing

I honestly do,

 

He's played in 6 minutes total for them in their last 4 games

One of the worst strikers I've ever seen during his time here. He rarely starts for Norwich so I doubt they - or anyone else - will show any interest in buying him.

 

Guessing you never saw Bothroyd, Jeffers or Kim Olsen

I would have him back right now if we could. 

not his fault but this bloke is the reason we are up s**t creek.  Dumbest signing ever.  A club with GBP16m total income spending half of that on a player + wages.

 

Absolutely insane.  Combine that with the other one paced, over the hill garbage and no wonder we are where we are.

 

And to those talking about service - let's do the JR sitters compilation incl. the one against QPR where he managed to head it over the bar from 2 yards in front of an open goal.

and in those 6 minutes he still managed to score

 

glad we still have the scoring predators of Nuhui, Fletcher and Hopper to rely on though

Sadly his future is League One, which is bad news for us, as no club at that level could afford him, even on loan We’d end up subsidising most of his wages

I think he could score hatfuls of goals for Celtic or Rangers......

This is one of the questions I want asking at the fans forum.

 

I would like chansiri to explain that statement and clarify what exactly he means by 'big trouble'

 

Such a broad statement that could mean anything.

 

I think it was DC's way of getting the fans used to the idea that we'll have to sell our best players to comply with FFP

The words out of Chansiri's mouth were

"If we fail to go up this season we are in big trouble".

Call me negative but I dont think we will be building any promotion chasing teams for a good few years, certainly whilst Chansiri remains at the club.

Did he say how much trouble we’d be in if we get relegated??

Rhodes wages are going to kill us when he comes back in the summer unless we can flog him.

He's got a similar goalscoring rate at Norwich as Joao as for us this season though, infact Joao has scored 1 more with less minutes played

 

Funny how he wasn't namechecked though ;)

Yehrrr that did dawn on me after I posted other one :( still tbf we wouldn’t get going next year anyway I recon realistically as Wednesday fans we need to realise we won’t be challenging again for a couple of seasons anyway ? If we are stuck with kids then let them gel and gain experience they’ll come good

 

Don't disagree. I think we will have to accept that but it's going to be a struggle to justify the season ticket price, petrol and travel time for me to renew in a couple of months' time

He'll be sold in January. Heard something a while back on the radio about Villa selling Grealish. Some bloke who knew about FFP reckoned that its more beneficial to sell in January for clubs and ffp didn't understand it tbh.

Can he be sold though, if he’s on a full season’s loan? I suppose Norwich could make the deal permanent, but they are unlikely to do that if he can’t get in the side
