Wednesday's "outrageous" Rhodes valuation

Recommended Posts

They simply want a back up striker for 1 million don’t they! Gone public to try and engineer something. Think £3.5- 4m would be fair given they paid (if true) a £1m loan fee last season.

 

Outrageous isn’t this though. Outrageous is Pogba for £90m or even worse Fred for £55m! (Or even Delias latest cook book for £15.99!) Both driven by the big money Premiership which Norwich are now part of - get used to it fella!

There's nothing about this Rhodes signing that has worked for us. Our over valuation of him in the first place has stuffed us up no end. Anyone willing to sign him for £0 would remove a great weight from our wage budget and give us the chance to sign 2 excellent Champ standard players. 

 

Despite DC and others shouting how much fans wanted him for whatever price, I and many sane Wednesday fans thought purchasing a 7th striker for the £8-£10m fee banded about on the reported £40k+ a week was absolutely mental.

For me just shows a real mental weakness. Imagine characters like shearer and Ian Wright, imagine trying to get the ball off them on a penalty (I'm not comparing Rhodes to them ability wise obviously). Players like that just want to score goals. They don't care whether it's a shootout or not, they just want to score. All the reports I've read about Rhodes say he's the consummate professional and he's a great lad etc and I'm not doubting any of that. But a penalty for a striker should be meat and drink for me.

 

I agree. I think it means alot for him to play for us. Given the transfer fee and wages comes expectancy and maybe Bruce can get him believing in himself.

They didn't agree to pay anything last year when they did the loan apparently..

 

But Webber conceded the club may have to look elsewhere to strengthen their attacking options.He said: "First of all, we never had the option to buy him, in writing. We couldn't agree that last summer so we didn't have it. It was just a straight forward loan. 

Interesting though isn’t it, that Chansiri wants the agreement to be honoured but Norwich claim there was no agreement in writing.

 

Still sounds like Mr C is rather naive in the ways of the football world...best leave it to Bruce to negotiate

He still doesn't really have a clue and needs to pick things up a lot quicker if we're to ever be competitive in the top 6. It's taken him 3.5 years to sort a good manager and now he needs to look very carefully at his no sale policy that has cost him (the club) multiple millions with very little reward.

Hopefully he’ll come back fire us to promotion and we can wave at Norwich as we pass them on their way down

a) if it wasn’t for a brilliant save by the Udds goalie in extra time he would have got us to Wembley

b) He had missed against Leeds and that was probably on his mind

c) It takes a brave man to be a coward some times. Why Waddle took that penalty against Wolves in the Cup 1994 .... he was crap at ‘em - proved a decisive turning point for the club. 

d) Rhodes may have come up short in his time at S6 but perhaps with the possible exception of Bannan, so have ALL the players either in terms goals ( eg Atty, Joao) fitness (eg Lee, Hooper, Hutch, Abdi), consistency (eg Reach, Lees), ability (Jones, Van Aken). That’s why we are where we are, it ain’t all JRs fault. 

 

Im sure if you asked Sue-Ellen it will be a different story.

Where has it been said and by who that Rhodes doesn't want to be here?

Premiership club should pay the figure suggested if they really want him or they can go elsewhere and still get shafted for a player with less pedigree. Not bothered either way as Bruce will get him performing if he wants to keep him.

If Norwich want Rhodes & vice versa then we should do nothing of the sort. We’re not brokers, we are a club with an asset that they want - pay the money.

If they would like to negotiate then that is our opening offer - negotiate us down.

Dont offer us 2 & expect us to snap your hand off because whilst we may be naive we are not lunatics.

Theres 2 months to go, you don’t start giving away your assets for nowt straight away.

What way is he an asset to this club?

That is interesting - I had no idea he was some kind of leader of men father figure type there. Comments suggesting fans would see £3m or £4m as a good deal... and so would I.

 

I was chatting to my Norwich supporting mate yesterday, and he reckons Rhodes has made a great impression on their fans - he sees him as a consummate professional whose attitude and impact when used as a squad player has been second to none.

 

We're fortunate to have a Premier League team interested in Rhodes; it's just sod's law it's a Premier League team quibbling over a few million of their recent £100m+ windfall!

Well it seems the sensible thing is either sell him to Norwich for maybe 3-4 Million, or he has to be our first/second choice striker.

 

I say that since I don't see other clubs coming in for him, so we either sell him or use him. 

 

Steve Bruce, over to you then...

I’d let Bruce have a player at his disposal that he’s wanted at other clubs too see if Bruce and make owt of him and hopefully bring that value up

At the end of the day we need to reduce the wage bill. We have far too many strikers at the club. If Norwich want Rhodes and if he wants to go, we should do everything we can to make the move happen.

 

I’m not saying we settle for peanuts, but we certainly don’t put Norwich off by pricing him at 7 million. 

 

£7M is an over-evaluation at this time.

Norwich in the past couple of weeks have suggested they would like to take him off our hands on a free transfer - given that they want him and clearly hold him in high regard for his attitude and dressing room influence as much as his goals - that is an under-evaluation on their part. 

 

It seems this thread is far quicker to jump on our owner for his over estimation than it is to jump on cash-rich Norwich for their under estimation of a player who has evidently contributed effectively to getting them to where they are now.

 

Around £4M would still seem fair enough in the current market - which is as close to our valuation than it is to theirs so not sure why it is our club that are getting more stick on here in this usual course of negotiation.

If you continuously overprice the items you're selling, you don't make any sales. Hence why we've had to effectively mortgage out the shop.

 

The thing is, has there been that many genuine offers for our players that we have turned down in recent years?

 

Forestieri maybe but at the time there may have been decent offers plenty of our fan base would have chosen not to sell. Who else have we had decent offers for that we could have taken?

He must've have been.  It's not a hypothetical, somebody paid £6m for him.  That's the reality of the situation.  This reality makes your opinion worthless.

 

Only one club valued Madine at that price and the rest of the top two divisions were probably aghast by what Cardiff were willing to pay.

 

As much as you would like to think players like Rhodes should be worth more than Gary Madine, who has never really proved his worth at Championship level never mind PL, that one transfer can't really be used as a barometer for setting the price on others.
