It's not hard if Norwich had took him for nothing Middlesbrough would have been due all the remaining balance of his fee where as we have being paying staged payments as agreed 

So by keeping him we have still had to pay boro and pay his wages...reyt..like I said we must have saved loads🤗

You might be right but there would be various opinions on the matter, none of which can be proved or disproved. Is Rhodes that bad that is was worth writing off the difference between the money paid to Boro' and what is saved on wages just to get rid of him?

The striking situation is a perfect example of the bad decisions and unbalanced transfer policy we've had over the last few years.

 

To think it used to be a case of which strikers were starting, going on the bench or missing out completely from a list of Hooper, Fletcher, Forestieri, Joao, Nuhiu and Winnall... to who's going to start alongside a misfiring and expensive Rhodes, let alone be on the bench is a ridiculous situation to find ourselves in.

What you’re actually suggesting is that Chansiri pays for our players to play for somebody else. Maybe even one of our rivals in the Championship. Let’s face it they’re not good enough to play in the Premier League.

 

He needs permanent transfers, I can understand his thinking.

 

 

 

So can I, but I dont think we get c£4m value depriving competitors of players we arent going to play.

No but we haven't had to say pay a million straight out but in instalments it's easy to whinge when it's not your money

I suppose it comes down to Rhodes as been given numourous chances which he didn't fulfil handsight is a wonderful thing

And offload Jordan Rhodes at the same time. 


I agree. It can’t be good for morale having the clubs highest earner basically being dead wood. Those been asked to put in a shift must feel a bit fed up by it.

 

Get the free loader out of here.

It is and I count myself as one who was seduced by his past record when he signed.

 

The bottom line for me is that I wouldn't be in the least bit concerned about facing a team containing any or all of Westwood, Van Aken, Reach or Rhodes if they moved on.

Would imagine we owe practically nothing nothing to boro like I said a above hindsight is a wonderful thing if Rhodes had gone on a scoring run after his hat trick at forest it would have been an god on here but now people take cheap shots

Complete mismanagement, but comes as no surprise. We are a bloody shambles of a club from top to bottom.

Our chairman is loaded and it's only the EFL holding him back from spending

 

Please Dad what does 'Cant' mean ?

 

Yes son it means hypocritical and sanctimonious talk, typically of a moral, religious, or political nature.

Pace / running of FF, Murphy & Da Cruz

 

Aerial threat / hold play of Wickham, Fletcher, Nuhiu 

 

Really need to replace 2 of the 3, of each category

Poor Mr. Chansiri. Wednesday supporters seem to want fiscal restraint AND some strikers too. There is just no pleasing them.

 

It's possible to show fiscal restraint and have more than 1 striker at the club don't you think?

That is how I understood it. As we still had a staged payment to make to Middlesbrough, it would have cost more to give him away on a free transfer than keep him and pay his wages.

Not only that it would have meant this year's portion of the fee we paid would have become accountable immediately making P&S even worse.

I hope not Wickham . Another 20k a week for someone to sit in the stands and watch. The treatment table would get more ware than the grass on the pitch from him.
