Jordan Rhodes TIME TO GO END OF !!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

It's not a great offer, but a sizeable chunk towards Wickham's wage for the duration. I'd hope Wickham's contribution would better Rhodes' pathetic offering here for the remainder of season.

He doesn’t strike me as someone just doing it for the cash (hello Fernando) but I agree that something is going on mentally there. In a way it’s sad to watch. He looks to me like someone that knows what to do, but just can’t make the connection between brain and body any more. The first goal in the Forest game was pure instinct-no thought involved, just whip a shot in. After that you could see confidence in everything he did. Sadly, you can’t guarantee him a free goal every game to get himself going 

 

He is still making the runs and getting into positions but his overall game is awful. Two lovely poacher runs for Murphys crosses. 1st half he should have buried that header, brilliant movement though. 2nd half nice run but the cross was too far in front of him, he couldn't run any earlier as he would have been offside.

 

Its his contribution to the team that is lacking, for quite a big lad hes weak in possession and gets knocked off easily. 1st touch(when its not a shot) is shocking and his speed of thought and passing isn't much cop either. If he's not scoring then he doesn't/can't contribute. That said, if he joins a team who put decent crosses in and get bodies in and around him he will score goals.

Loan is the best option otherwise we have to pay Boro the rest of the fee don’t we? 
 

if he went to Wigan and did ok and we moved him on in the summer it would help us more in terms of accounting. He’s been one of the most frustrating buys ever. There’s a player there but the aggression and hunger seems to have waned.

You reckon? Sounds pretty good to me. It'll cover most of his wages I'd have thought.


No loan fee though? I guess beggars can’t be chooses like.

It basically amounts to 20-25k a week. Assuming he’s on 35k a week that leaves us picking up 10-15k a week, think we’d be relying on Palace accepting similar for Wickham to maintain our balance sheet

No loan fee if he stays too!

 

Still, we seem to be playing brinkmanship with Palace over Wickham, so it's likely we're doing the same with Wigan over Rhodes; threatened by relegation as they are, we can probably expect a better offer from them if it's not working out for them with their other targets.

You can argue the throw over whether it's a big enough chunk of Rhodes' cost, but it would pay the 25k/week for 4 months that Palace want for Wickham making it effectively a straight loan-swap. Rhodes or Wickham...I know which I'd rather have the next 4 months.

This has been done to death, he is a finisher and that's about it. Very limited ability wise. 

 

In games where the ball is dropping for him in the box he will come alive but for me, you can't carry a player in anticipation of this happening if they don't contribute anything else. 

 

Nothing against him but not what we need, same really re Winnall, but at least he seems to put himself about a bit more, and a little more dynamic. 

The problem is, when crosses were coming in he didn’t take up the right positions and seemed to hide. I may be a confidence thing but we need players who are aggressive and make things happen.

 

I actually thought he did try and track back etc early on and did ok (given it’s not his game) but he was slow to close down defenders and this only got worse as the game progressed.

That'll fair well for the 21 point deduction doom mongers. Loan Rhodes to Wigan, who fires em out of the relegation zone. Then we end up in their predicament. 

 

WTF:

I'm not sure it's that much. I recall DC saying at one of the fan forums that no one was earning more than £30k pw. Dont think he'd be far off that though

I don't know when a loan contract ends. Is it up to and including the final week of the season, or does it stretch to the 1st of June? I'll assume the former and that the deal will go through on deadline day, in which case we're talking about 13 weeks so for 500k, that's about 38.5k per week - and you reckon he's on about 77k per week?!

 

To be honest, I doubt he'll be on even as much as 38.5k per week, so twice that much doesn't seem even remotely believable.

We can't stomach Rhodes' £175k/week wage anymore. It's almost as much as David Jones.

He was on 55k a week at Boro..

How much of a wage drop did he take to come here?

Still be a shame if he goes imo. I know that's not a popular view, but there it is.

 

Seemed he might find his groove in his last couple of games up front with Fletch, but not he's injured, there's no other player at the club like Fletch for him to play off. With Fletch not going to be back till mid-late March, I think that puts an end to Rhodes' time with us.
