Whoever we sign they at the moment feeding off scraps? Harris needs to start doing wot he was doing at the start of last season..start delivering the ball early? The amount of times he now gets to last defender and tries to go back inside? Most forwards ( Rhodes inc) feed off early ball across the box before the defenders get the chance to organise and reset 

Well I don't know why GM brought all those coaches in, could have just given you a bell. lol

Trouble is Rhodes is picking his nose thirty yards up the pitch, Harris needs a target to aim at.

According to whoscored.com, best strikers in Championship last season (highest rating per match) included (out of 70 who played 5 or more times as a striker)....

 

5th Fletcher

8th Jutkiewicz

10th Nuhiu

13th Joao

16th Wickham

18th Brewster

22nd Martin

27th Rhodes

37th Bamford

 

Jutkiewicz would be a fantastic signing but I don't suppose we can get him.

 

I don’t rate Bamford but he can’t be that much worse than Rhodes surely

Probably could’ve kept Fletcher for cheaper than what it would cost to bring Jutkiewicz in,  who’s a great target man and not an asset I think Birmingham would let go cheaply 


one advantage Jutkiewicz has is that he has played every game for the last 2 seasons where as Fletcher has missed a fair bit.

Another advantage is that his wage is likely to be less than the 35k a week that Fletcher was on.

Bamford is 10x the player Rhodes is which shows those stats are ridiculous. 

He led the line, usually on his own, for all 46 games for a team that won the league. He is an annoying poo but he is probably underrated by fans compared to how managers probably view him.

We’re haggling over £450k for Windass we won’t pay what Jutkiewicz is valued at!


Could be right . Would love us to get Jutkiewicz in through.

Those stats will be inaccurate to the truth because of goals per game or goals per start ratio.

 

Rhodes scored a hat trick in one of the very few games he started/played in. 
 

Bamford pretty much played the majority of Leeds’ season but wasn’t ‘prolific’. 
 

Obviously Bamford is the better striker though 😂😂😂

I would have settled for 16 goals from any of our strikers last season.

If he’s gone to Watford, surely he’s on an upward trajectory

Maybe he's just training with them. Has he signed?

We all know Rhodes’s strengths and weaknesses but to judge him on yesterday is ridiculous.

We got very few crosses into the box and outside the box he was up against Soyunc? , one of the best defenders in the Premier League.

Obviously he needs help up there, he can only play in a two .

 

In regards to strikers you have to sign the ones that suit the way we are going to play.

A pacy, footballing forward would be great but we will have to play a lot more football on the deck through the middle rather than going wide all the time.

 

Jutkiwiezc is the best header of the ball in the division and leads the line well. Ideal foil for Rhodes and others. 

If we could get him it would be ideal, he is a great focal point, and I honestly don’t see us suddenly becoming a great footballing team to support a smaller, pacy striker.

Good post.

Winall (not a giant) scored a lot with headers at Barnsley.

We need someone arially dominant (like Fletcher) because we will not stop launching at the lone forward's head.

Yesterday.. Rhodes' marker went through the back of him and cleared with ease.

We need someone to contest in this area so that we've got a chance of picking up the second ball.

Issue is with Jutkiewicz he’s 31 so will he fit into the new style of signing , that’s the thing , but 15 goals last season , certainly would be happy if we did go in for him
