why would we sell a player to our biggest rivals to go down. i expect derby and forest to escape but qpr are the next closest club. 

Agreed. We should be looking at Brum, QPR and Coventry. We shouldn't do anything that could help their situation.

For balance.

 

Notice anything about the striker we all seem to want to leave?

 

Record for Wednesday 19/20 & 20/21

 

Rhodes - Goal every 261 minutes

Windass - Goal every 314 minutes

Kachunga - No goals in 559 minutes

Marriott - No goals in 319 minutes

 

For balance what is Paterson's?

Because we maybe would rather they had Rhodes who is in decline than they go out and get a Prem loan or unknown in who does the business. Sandbagging them with Rhodes.

I imagine he'll score goals. 

 

We've never made him the main man. 

 

We've needed to play to him. 

 

He's a round peg in need of a system of round holes. 

 

You have a very vivid imagination.

Interesting division of opinion on here.

 

He’s sheite v Don’t strengthen our rivals

 

He's bobbar with us, as many players are, but that doesn't mean that he'll be bobbar with them.

 

The move could rejuvenate him and he could fire them to safety at our expense.

 

And he has a good record against us too.

 

The only consolation is that although many good players turn bob when they come here, they rarely do anything elsewhere afterwards.

 

We just have that kind of effect on people...

 

Didn't McGeady say that he considered giving up football altogether after playing for us?

 

We're plop.

 

lol

Just can't see Rhodes keeping up with play to finish any chances. Don't think he touched the ball the other day after coming on. Too slow and bullied on the ball like a kid.

QPR fans biggest gripe is that Dykes gets no service so can't score. If Rhodes gets the same he is in trouble.

Its not been a happy time either for Jordan Rhodes or us....simply how its panned out.

Now we can go on hoping, he can go on hoping..But who said what about doing the same thing over and over again and hoping it would work?

It hasn't worked...

We aren't helping them. We are offloading a flop. If they get him then they aren't getting a player that could propel them to safety

Best to close this chapter.

I wanted him to do well....each and every time there was a new manager or new system.

Just didnt happen. 

I agree we have had some really bad signings. I dont put him at the top of that list but in terms of moment wasted. Just wow.

Anyway cant look back.

We move on

He's had a number of managers here and none of them played him much. You would expect one of them to get a tune out of him. It never happened.

 

Good bye Jordan I was going to say good luck but can you just delay the good luck until next season please.

Stockpiling players that dont play is one reason why we are in financial ruin. We cant hold onto a player just because he might do well somewhere else. Whatever his record is Successive managers dont seem to play him so if we have a chance to get rid we should take it.

Like that flop Joao that we sold last year?

Rhodes hasn't done the job for us but QPR seem to believe he can for them, it is a risk. 

 

Given a choice between letting him go and seeing him drain another 6 months of wages from us for little return though, I think we have to say goodbye, especially if letting him go means we can try and bring in someone of more use.
