I don't want him to burn out.

if fletch is unavailable what have we to fill that role?

 

Rhodes is clearly second choice in Bully’s eyes.

 

I assume Nuhiu after that for the central role.

Was it just me..or did Rhodes look a bit listless?

When he came on his closing down looked pedestrian..after Fletcher...Maybe its not his game, and he didn't really have time to get into it...Pity that half chance didn't go in.

he got a great reception when he came on...Hope that helps

if nuhiu has to come in for fletch, he'll have to play his ballz off, his supporting players may have to be closer to him.

Think Nuhiu could be affective with pace around him. 

More suited to the role after Fletcher.

Chucking him up there as a straight swap Fletcher when we are winning is almost just giving him time on the pitch to keep him fit and happy.    I couldn't see him scoring, but then I suppose we had stopped pushing forwards on the wings too towards the end so maybe i'm not giving Rhodes enough credit.

 

It did feel like we just chucked him on after having pulled the supply out from under him. Murphy off for Pessy a few minutes before.

Still, a really good ball to slot in Luongo.

He got a bit ****blocked by Hutch when Hutch really should have scored. Rhodes was well positioned for the same pass from Luongo that went to Hutch, Hutch should really have made a more central run, and Rhodes would have been in. Can't blame Hutch of wanting it, but it wasn't the right run. Still Rhodes was alive to get on the end of the rebound, but the defender was on top of it by then too.

He also did a decent Fletch impression, in our own half, surrounded by their players, no out ball, but shielded it and won the freekick. Smart play.

 

So for a 'last 10' cameo, I thought he did really well. Laid on a goal for someone else, could have scored and got us out of a sticky defensive situation.

Rhodes should of put the rebound away too...

would of helped if he hit the ball properly.

Also thought Rhodes looked excellent when he came on. 

 

Fitter and stronger than I remember

Just a shame Rhodes doesn’t look to be enjoying it at Wednesday!

I thought he was extremely effective. Sharp, great awareness and movement.

 

Would have made our third goal but for a very good save.

There was quite a lot of spin on that ball after the save, so was always going to be hard to take on the volley and he didn't have time to bring it down.

I think you're a being a tad harsh in term of what players "should" score. Aguero's probably getting pelters off you most weeks.

At championship level it was a very good chance. 

There was time for a touch if there was “a lot of spin” on the ball.

Fletch is class

 

I must admit I wasn't too keen when we handed him a 4 year contract but he's done the business and has got better every season

Was bang average at best for the first couple of years here. But since the arrival of Bruce, he’s been very much the player we thought we were getting. 

 

Seems fitter and more confident. I think the faith shown in him by Bruce was exactly what he needed.

 

Which seasons was he bang average?

 

16/17 when he missed out as top scorer by one goal, scored at a better rate than anyone, dragged us almost single-handed into the Play-Offs and almost got us into the final?

 

or

 

17/18 when he and Hooper forged a partnership in which they scored at almost a goal per game, before Fletcher’s season ended early December from injury?

he should have buried that chance, look at it again.  Hooper would have just put his foot through it and roofed it, Rhodes miskicked it, half volley, right foot.  8m says should do better.

It's on target.. it's blocked by the defender..

Can see both Fletcher and Rhodes doing well with the likes of Harris and Murphy cutting the ball back on a plate for them.

 

Look at some of Rhodes goals for Norwich, Hernandez did the hard bit and Rhodes was there waiting

If you sign Fletcher for his all round play you have a great player if it's purely as a goal machine it won't happen.

 

We ended up relying on him for goals far more than we should have usually as his strike partners were injured or in FF's case banned.

He's just not as fit, strong or as athletic as Fletcher and never will be.

I think you've been wearing the Rhodes tinted 'messiah' specs again.  If he strikes it cleanly, he's got half of the unguarded net to hit.  It's not even a difficult angle, but he miscues it towards the opposite bottom corner where there is a covering defender and keeper.  You'd score it, I'd score it.  He gets paid 2.5m a year.  As said.  He's just not good enough.  Winnall def sticks that away.
