The flick on was the lions share of the work. However, if you read the rest of my post you will see in the second paragraph that I exclude my bias before replying to Holmowl - how can I be less biased by stating “for the argument let’s ignore what I think and go with your argument about Rhodes’s inclusion in games bringing about the result”?  The point is, whether Rhodes is or was good, bad or indifferent, he isn’t impressing himself enough on the manager to get a starting berth; that tells me that he’s not good enough. 

I think the only person you are fooling with the lions share comment is yourself.

I don’t want to dodge the question but once you’ve seen Bannister & Varadi  and Hirst & Williams it’s difficult to appraise the current crop.

Layne ( or indeed Ellis)  and Fantham was a fairly good partnership too...

 

I’m going to need another box of tissues...

You’re just completely fooling yourself to the point of delusion pal if you believe Jordan Rhodes is the answer. You can dress it up however you like but the truth is that Rhodes has failed at SWFC big time. He’s not impressing himself on Monk for some reason (I believe it’s because Rhodes is not very good) but the only person that can change that is Rhodes himself by either trying harder or changing or leaving the club. 
 

I’d like to see Rhodes score 15 to 20 goals for us this season because we need some value out of him but it isn’t going to happen until he impresses himself upon Monk.

If we were allowed to delve a little; In a 4-3-3 I would have Hirst, Kovacavic and Atkinson.  

Why Kovacavic - surely Chapman or Bright?

He was like lightening and deadly. Pleat hid him for the grubby little deal he organised. Moved for £2m and then £17m in a very short space of time. Not sure but I think he scored within 30 seconds of his debut.

ellis was a strange one 60 goals in 118 games for a team that was arguably one of the top 4 clubs in the country and with in a year they sell him to scunthorpe for£ 7,500 .......a player with record these days would have few more 000s added on the fee. ...............bronco & fants were the best ive seen .

To be honest, I can’t remember a great deal about him other than he was the first player I saw wearing socks above his knees. I can remember being relatively excited about him signing though.

7-2 at Old Trafford though. Ellis was unplayable ( I believe that’s the current terminology).
