Gotta feel sorry for Rhodes

Exactly this.

 

Its a calculated message.

 

”Just look. I’ve nobody! You have to buy me a top striker and now!”

 

I don’t like it, because I like Rhodes, but I do understand it.

As if DC watches our matches - I have it on good authority he was watching the darts yesterday afternoon

Actually  , there's a few things going on here isn't there? 

 

Was Pulis right to 'sub the sub' and destroy any last crumbs of confidence Rhodes has -  No. 

 

Is Jordan Rhodes still terrible , as he has been since he joined us - Yes 

 

Should Jordan Rhodes start whenever he's fit , as he's no worse than any other of our loosely named 'attackers '  - Probably Yes.

 

This isn't the worse striker situation in my Wednesday lifetime. I've seen us play Tony Crane up front for a few games. 

 

That's it..Van Aken up front! Go for it!

Can't be bothered reading 15 pages.

 

I noticed Pulis said in his presser it was a decision made for the team and that he'd have a chat with him on Monday.

I don't see any issue with that and i'm sure he'll be nothing but honest with Rhodes when he talks to him today.

 

What's the general consensus in the thread?

 

Pulis right or wrong?

But if I was Rhodes, I would consider retiring at the end of the season. 

 

 

If I was on £30k per week, I'd carry on playing until I was 60.

Van Aken slips more than Joao did. Could look like an ice-dancing duo on Wednesday evening.

He's done bugger all to deserve his place in the team, over the past few years!

 

I love this logical leap..

He spent a year not at the club and then being left out by the worst manager we've had in 15 years.. and you blame the payer for "not doing enough"

Genius!

To be fair he has been left out by every manager here and at Middlesbrough

He was binned by every manager we've had since he's been here, apart from Bruce who didn't have the luxury of being able to bin him.

Pulis has to make a major mark quickly on the rancid culture of our club.

 

Rhodes is now finished, and his lucrative contracts after June. 

 

Others too that don't perform.

Rhodes hasn't worked out for us massively. Turning in to the worst transfer we;ve ever made in terms of outlay in cash

 

He wasn't wanted by many yet the chairman thought fit to buy him anyway and completely wasting a massive chunk of transfer budget on him as well. And anyone that agrees with his "I did it as the fans were calling for him" want their ******** heads checking. What experience chairman brings in a 8m gamble when we had a flurry on expensive talent on the books already. Fcks sake

 

 

I don't agree with Pulis hooking him off neither .. Should have taken Patterson off, or moved him in to midfield and brought someone else off and let Rhodes see out the game. Changing the game changed nothing. Absolutely nothing.

 

BUT I really hope Pulis still has Rhodes in his thoughts and continues to play him. He can't be any worse than what garbage Patterson, Windass and Kachunga have dished up

 

 

Jesus wept, we are bereft of talent up front and in midfield ...

 

What the fizz have we become ...

Same about reading 15 pages, I read a few. Here are my thoughts. I thought it was wrong for Pulis to do it, especially in our situation. The only thing I can see why he did it is because Rhodes didn't follow the tactics/plan. I think he's kinda lying on the made for the team comment, why publicly destroy probably one of the last chances Rhodes has with us ect. and also bring Brown on who did nothing compared with him?

"The trouble with "lessons from history" is that we usually read them best after falling flat on our chins."   

 

"Girls are simply wonderful. Just to stand on a corner and watch them go past is delightful. They don't walk. At least not what we do when we walk. I don't know how to describe it, but it's much more complex and utterly delightful. They don't move just their feet; everything moves and in different directions . . . and all of it graceful."  Starship Troopers, Amen!

Great post , mate. 

 

I can't think of a worse signing- some might say Abdi, but supporters were behind him and his time here was destroyed by injury..hardly his fault. You can also argue that in his rare appearances he looked quality. 

 

Rhodes - well I've never known such a large number of posters be against a signing to start with, he's cost us way more. 

 

I appreciate that most of us wouldn't do the same job for less money,  but Rhodes is a millionaire and could have taken a haircut to save his career and play. I think lack of ambition and greed has turned supporters against him as much as his awful performances.

You have totally made that up mate

 

Lack of ambition?

Greed?

 

Chansiri has knocked back all offers for him. How then is he supposed to move elsewhere when the chairmans put him in chains and padlocks?
