Yep, he was that good they were willing to pay nothing for him

Tbf, Norwich were relegated..so I would think their judgment should not be trusted.

Needs to get his confidence back, and remember what he did before (get in the right positions), and it might come good again. 

 

Scoring a few more will boost that confidence.

 

Plus, getting better service, goals laid on a plate for him.

Not gonna say i was right yet.. it's early days.

But lets face it, i'm right.

There's absolutely zero point in getting hyped here... this is Sheffield Wednesday and false-dawns are our speciality. The hatrick at Forest was perhaps the most misleading sign of a turnaround I've ever seen from a footballer.

 

But it really is great to see him scoring such a "Jordan Rhodes"-type goal... and you can't complain with a record of one league game, one goal. Let's just hope he can take some positive momentum and a bit of confidence forward and do what he needs to do this season. 

 

Good luck Mr Rhodes.

He had a nice partnership with Fletcher there, but was then dropped quite soon. As he's clearly a confidence player, that won't work.

But once again, I think he's the happiest Wednesday player today.

Tell that to DJ Mortimer

 

 

You need to grow up. At one point this afternoon, 5 of my last 8 notifications were you repeating this lip quivering childishness. And you're still going three hours later.

 

Rhodes' record of the last 5 years has been abysmal. It's not up for debate. Going forward, I'm only concerned at this point with us getting the points we need to stay in this division. Who scores the goals, makes the saves or kisses the badge are of much less importance.

That goal will no doubt be a huge weight lifted off his shoulders. 

 

Getting that first goal will certainly ease the pressure.  

 

Hopefully Jordan gets a start against Rochdale, a big opportunity to get some more goals and build up some much needed confidence.

Like many I'm finding it hard to feel too positive about Rhodes just yet, having been burned by the false dawn Forest provided.

 

He never seems effective off the bench, so perhaps starting more regular games will help him. That and Beattie should make a big difference.

 

He's lucky to even have this last chance with us, so it's up to him but maybe we finally start playing to his strengths more too.

Classic Rhodes goal today, that's literally all I want from him . He's not going to hold the ball up, link up play, run on to a through ball etc, etc. But, if he can nick one of those with a bit of regularity it'd be good enough.

 

I remember thinking maybe he'd turned a corner after hist hat-trick at Forest.....

He did work really hard today. Won free kicks, got his goal and closed down well.

Whoever is up top will he expected to run into the channels and if that’s Windass and Kach then Rhodes should benefit
