Even I, as a Dave-sceptic, can see that as a massive tree like figure, he offers more if he doesn't score than Rhodes, who can run and run and not make a dent on the game. 

 

I can only assume the offering you're referring to is the constant free kicks that Nuhiu gives the opposition defenders.

Ive changed my mind about Rhodes.

 

the forwards we had when we bought him, coupled with the way we played at the time, he was the wrong fit for us. i didnt want him.

 

then he started playing, and he was worse than i could possibly have imagined.. off the pace, missed quite a few chances you would expect him to bury, not to mention our other forwards offered more in the way CC had us playing.

 

then a breakthrough, a club actually want to take him on loan, i couldnt get him out the door fast enough.

 

i wanted him to bang in loads of goals every week so we could sell him for LOADSAMONEY!!!!

 

 

But now ive changed my mind. while he hasnt broke into the 'Narchh' first team every week, hes shown enough in his cameos, the types of finishes.. even when they lost 4-3 to Derby the other week Rhodes came on late and crashed a half volley on the turn, onto the underside of the crossbar last minute.

hes started popping up in the right areas again, scoring the scruffy goals. he wont dominate a defender like Fletcher, he wont smack one in from 25yds like FF, but hes re-found that knack of ghosting into areas at the right time, scoring scruffy goals, and clever goals with deftness of touch.

 

Not to mention we as a club are in a diff' place to where we was when JR arrived.. is it 12 players out of contract this summer?

big rebuild needed. while i was never an advocate of changing the way we played to suit JR when he came, we now have a clean slate with new manager, new ideas and with JR still in contract, its not a bad problem for steve Bruce to have is it!

At last this thread has broken out in common sense, await Steve Bruce to implement more of it.

FGR is the local team, when I can’t make the 7hr round trip to Sheffield due to work / family. But I like fickle fans telling me who to support.... as I’m such a silly man

 3. tbf he is the main reason we are in this predicament.

 2. and at the time (with what we had and what we needed) he wasnt a great signing

but number 1, you're right he hasnt gone yet. and its doubtful a club will pay what we want. but 12 others (minimum) ARE going.

so maybe we can now build a side that plays to JR strength, i think he has proved in his short time at Norwich that given a full season of playing time he would get you 20+ goals... well i cant see any of our others doing that right now, nor can i see us affording someone who can.

3. The fact that we bought him may be a big contributor to our current predicament. It is not his fault.

He's on the bench again tonight. 

 

Seems to be very much a "super" sub for Norwich, albeit they are flying at the top of the division. 

 

As they were saying in the Sky studio before tonight's game: 

 

He (Rhodes) is a fox in the box, but his overall game is lacking in comparison with Pukki (hence why the latter starts). 

 

Personally, I just can't see him ever coming back here and be some great success. Would love to be proved wrong and tbf he carries more of a goal threat than some of our forwards.

Think the best we could hope for, and him, would be a similar role he now has at Norwich Goals from the bench is a useful attribute It’s just a lot of money to pay for such a service

Well yes. 

 

His signing will go down as one of the worst ever. 

 

An 8 million pound vanity purchase, done when we didn't need him. 

 

I'd imagine that 8 million, plus his wages, played a pretty significant part in bringing us to our knees with respect to Profit and Sustainability.

Rhodes isn't going to dethrone Pukki at the moment unless they go with 2 up front.
