I hope he isn’t rested for the Rochdale game, a run and a few goals will do wonders for his confidence Even when we complete our striking line up, a confiden Jordan Rhodes will be a useful option from the bench If he can do for us, what he did for Norwich, then nobody will argue with that

Rochdale... twinned with Chernobyl apparently.

Word has it that the good folk of Chernobyl are very unhappy about it.

My point is, if he plays, he has a good opportunity to score, and a scoring Rhodes is a win win situation. A confident Rhodes would be useful to us, even if we utilised him as Norwich did. If we do sign a few more front players, then a scoring Jordan Rhodes might attract some attention before the window closes

Amazing.

 

You keep going on like that. I’ll keep enjoying his contribution in a really promising partnership, his goal, and a win.

If he plays from the start knowing and accepting that he will be subbed at half time or some other point then it will not do him any harm. We don't know. Scoring goals is Rhodes job and his own expectations. With different players around him and slightly different tactics he may just come good. 

Monk and his staff probably have a better chance of getting him back to his old self than he has had for a while. 

Good luck Jordan Rhodes. We need your goals.

Monk may have found the key to getting Rhodes going. 

In Windass we've finally got A bit of a terrier as a strike partner capable of upsetting defenders. He looks capable of creating space and confusion in and around the box for others to exploit and looks to have an eye for goal to boot. 

 

Add this to the new revolutionary idea of playing wide players on their best side for getting quick and better service in, we may get a lot more glimpses of the old Rhodes just like today

Just pleased for the lad to get of the mark so quickly for this season. Agree he should feature against Rochdale and hopefully he can score again.

Played to his strengths he will chip in with goals. With his back to goal on the halfway line being asked to hold up the ball and bring others into play is it his forte. I’m the 6 yard box sniffing is where he needs to be and goal proved that.

 

Not sure what will happen if we sign Zohore but it gives us options.

When I look at Rhodes it seems to me that he struggles mentally.

 

Maybe James Beattie will understand Rhodes a bit better and know what he needs to get back firing.

 

I am sure Beattie will have had ups and downs over the years.

Absolutely his biggest down must have been signing for the pink skins.

Rhodes needs to be played regularly with a regular strike partner.

 

It’s up to Monk whether we can allow him a few off games in the next 10 to build up a rhythm and relationship with Windass.
