Neither JR, Nuihu or Winnall are good enough to be on the bench. That's the one area we should have strengthened in the summer but didn't. I suppose we needed to move 1 or 2  out but if nobody wants them we're stuck with them

Maybe true but we had 7 strikers. Yes we got rid of Hooper( arguably the best one) because his contract was up and then sold Joao, someone who I suspect we wanted to keep. We still have 5 so there’s no way we could bring one more in. There will be massive change in this area next summer with Fletcher, Forestieri, Nuhiu and Winnall all out of contract. At least 3 of those 4 are likely to leave.

Makes me laugh when people keep going on about Winnall has anyone watched him in U23s?

 

He’s far from the player he was before his injury in-fact he’s no where near the level that he was. He struggles to run never mind anything else. 

Would explain a lot.

To be honest I'd have fancied Rhodes to have buried that header yesterday if their centre half hadn't been tying to tent-peg his shirt to the floor. 

Should have gone down

So far this season Rhodes has played 38 minutes. People are writing him off already. His goal to minutes ratio for Norwich last season was as good as any of our strikers. 

Give the bloke a chance now we have 2 proper wingers and are playing to what should be to his benefit. 

 

 

He was terrible Saturday though and I think his time might be up.

A bit harsh for just a few minutes played.

Knowing our luck, Nuihu will be the one not to leave!

He's been here far too long it's time to ship him out. He's only good spell was under Jos where he couldn't stop scoring for a certain period but apart from that has never been a goalscorer and has never been much of a threat

 

The more I think about it the more I think we made a mistake releasing Hooper. He would thrive in our current side and would guarentee goals in this set up

That period coincided with his contract being up!

 

Hooper would be a great addition for sure. Pay as you play.

He’s better than Rhodes and Winnall! I

 hoping we sell Winnall and possibly Nando in January so we can get one in. Then let Nuhiu go in the summer and re-sign Fletcher hopefully on less money. Then we can look to get Rhodes out next summer too and maybe get two new strikers in. Interesting times ahead in this department.

I see your point about Hooper but kind of disagree. He isn’t great at playing as a single striker. The 4-3-3 system means there is no number 10 which means Hooper would have struggled and been benched just like Nando has been.

Whether people think he's better or not, Nuihu, JR and Winnall are not up to the standard required. Like I said it's a pity no club wanted these players in the summer; it would have been nice to move them on and get 1/2 loan strikers in.

Yeah in my opinion not his type of game really, I was thinking Nuhiu might come on, but any sub is a gamble and could have worked out if Rhodes glanced a header in

Rhodes is pretty much finished at this level I think.

I thought winnallwould fit into our style of play and was looking forward to him coming on, but he was terrible. He was slow and looked knackered the moment he came on. The difference between him and fletcher was immeasurable. He really was bad.
