What’s everyone think about him these days?

 

It might be the case that they plan to ship him out in preseason but I’d like to see him get a proper chance. If Nuhiu can be given a million chances why can’t this fella?

 

If it’s true Bruce and Rhodes uncle are on their way then we can look forward to seeing the team set up with 4231 him up top with reach , forestieri,Matias as his other attackers and an English manager can play to an English footballers strengths better than random coaches can can’t they?

 

Thoughts?

He's gash

He’s no more ‘done’ than Keiren Lee , just had a bad run of injury’s , happens to loads of pros all the time 

They are both done.... hence they can’t last more than 10 mins on the field .

 

id like to see Rhodes give. Another chance tbh

If we sold him it would mean paying off 2.5m in his transfer fee (the last year from the 8m) and his wages for the year.  So you maybe looking at 4m. 

 

Nobody is gonna pay 4m for a player not scoring goals.

 

A season long loan to reduce the wage bill is our best option. 

 

Keeping Rhodes at S6 is silly when you could bring in 2 strikers for the wages he is on. 

Cardiff paid £5m for Gary Madine, there's still hope

 

lol

Absolute rubbish.

Carlos gave him more tha  enough chances , and set up the side to play to his strengths.

Rhodes just didnt deliver. P

 

 

 Rubbish. 

 

Carlos likes wingers like vampires like garlic.

I'm more excited about getting Winnall, Hooper back.

Winnall yes. Let’s face it Hooper isn’t going to play for us again.

No other striker would have got the chances Rhodes did , his price tag gave him a lot of time to get his act together.

 

We shouldn't have had to keep changing line ups and tactics to try and suite one player, but we did.

 

Even Jos gave him chances, but he failed to impact on games so went with Joao and Nuhui, with very effective results.

 

I find the continuing fawning over the hapless Rhodes astonishing. Some players don't perform and it's ' I'll drive him to a new club myself' . With Rhodes it's like he can do wrong, and if we only packed the side with wingers, and big striker to do knock downs, and provide him with 10 or 12 5 yard tap ins per game, then you would see what a great player he is!.

CC made no accommodations for Rhodes' game whatsoever.

 

Yes he did, changing formations and strike partners.

 

Absolutely sick of this worship for such a poor player and terrible signing.

Possibly mate, but we had posters on here saying KW would never play for us again. Live in hope. 

 

Love to see K Lee back more than anyone.

Unfortunately JR is a spent force, he had plenty of chances and missed them (some sitters as well) he’s not been the player he was for about three seasons, our worst buy ever for many reasons.

Aye, wingers putting balls in the box & quick passing moves playing the strikers in behind the defence were a hallmark of CC’s last year in charge weren’t they?

 

More often than not it was Rhodes isolated up top running after lost causes or having to drop back into his own half to get a touch.

 

Think I lost count on how many chances Rhodes missed in the 6 yard box for us from crosses during  Carlos’s time.

It didn't work for him here for whatever reason, but, new manager, new coach, new system who knows ?  Whether Bruce would get any more from him or not I think at least he'll identify the best system to suit the players available, something Jos didn't seem capable of.

But he deserves that chance to come good , the lad has scored 8 in 21 for Norwich and a couple of assists not bad going that.

 

The amount of chances nuhiu has had over the past 4 years and he’s not good enough to lace Rhodes boots

If it can happen, then a front 2 of Winnall & Hooper  and get a couple of million for Rhodes maybe, got my doubts about Hoopers fitness though,so could Rhodes do the job under the right manager? .Not forgetting wide men who can actually cross a ball consistently.

If yo7 think we changed tactics to suit him then you know very little about football and especially very little about how he plays, he would have been a great player if we actually had two wingers and probably lee playing too. 

 

As ot is he was never going to end well with us playing how we did and do. 

When we signed him I honestly was waiting for the two wingers to arrive.

 

if we go out under our new manager and actually get two proper wingers I would get him back. And quick. , I f we don’t and can’t get wingers then get rid.

Sadly I think your right but I’m hoping Bruce gives him a chance.
