Hi ed I would like to know are there any teams interested in Jordan Rhodes?

He is a great striker I'm amazed no one bought him in the premier league. His stats are unbelievable:
- 108 games for Huddersfield 73 gopals scored
- 87 games for Blackburn 52 goals scored

And he's only 24 years old

{Ed001's Note - the price has so far put anyone off taking a chance on him. They are looking for £10m+, having paid close to that for him. He has a contract until 2017, so the price is not yet about to drop because of it running out. It is more likely a team in danger in January goes for him.}


1.) Thanks for the reply ed001

{Ed001's Note - no worries, it is a discussion that has been had between us editors, is he worth the risk? He does lack a bit of pace, I think, myself, that is the main thing holding people back, as pace would allow him to get that tiny bit of space to shoot. It was that tiny burst of acceleration Torres had that made him so special for a while. He could just get himself half a yard over any defender and get his shot off before they could get near him. Now it is gone, he has to do so much more to be able to get a shot off, and it shows in his struggles to score. I would have the same fears with Rhodes, would he have the ability to create space for himself in the box without that pace? He has in the lower leagues, but the defenders are better in the Prem. Only way we will ever know is if someone does take a chance on him.}


2.) Yeah mate I know he lacks pace, but the thing is (I think, I may be talking nonsence) he adapts his game to his strenghts from younger age. Both him and Torres play a different role, as you say Torres relies on pace he used to outpace defenders, he was a real nightmare. But now when he lost a yard of pace he is finding it difficult to adopt another approach that would suit his game, also making a space to shoot, he used to burst through defender's lines and now he is easily surounded by defenders.
As for Rhodes he is much younger, he's not the quickest, but movement is great, and therefore his game doesn't rely too much on pace.
I can't really judge a player until I see him in the premier league, cause premier league is a different animal to championship, but I would love to see him in the prem, also scoring 125 goals in 195 appeareances is a great achievment and should not be underestimated.
The funny thing is there's no hype surounding this player. For example, Will Hughes has 6 assists and all of a sudden he is the next big thing, but this guy is tearing leagues apart and gets no mention from anybody. Honestly, I have never red an article about him.
Thanks again ed, hope you understand what I wrote, my english is a bit rusty :)

Hi gooners
I don't usually post, cause I live in the lands of the live chat mostly, so i decided to pay you a visit.
I watched the game yesterday on a stream which wasn't very good in the first half with a lot of delays, swearing and arguing (for waking up my gf) .
Well the game in my opinion was good, the youngsters got a nice run against a quality team of pensioners. Drogba as usual scored against us, nothing new there.
The only two players in my opinion that looked out of their depth were Walcott and Debuchy. When Bellerin came in he looked 1000 light years ahead of Debuchy. I would rather keep Jenkinson then Debuchy, I believe he will be sold soon.
Now Walcott
If Wenger thinks he can rely on Walcott in the absence of Giroud he truly needs his head checked. One of the most useless players I have ever seen. I bet he would struggle to keep place in a championship team, let alone a premier league club. How is he still at Arsenal is beyond me. I am really disappointed in how he regressed in his career. I really thought he could be a decent player at one point, but that ship has sailed now. He needs to be sold or loaned, such a waste of a squad spot.

It was interesting to see Holding against Drogba. He managed himself quite well, although he and Debuchy made a real mess for Drogba's goal.

Campbell had a good game also. He needs to work on his awareness when he is receiving the ball, to see the players coming from behind him.

Chambers I think needs to be loaned out for a season. He needs playing time. His positioning in my opinion is often poor. I don't really know what position on the team really suits him.

Xhaka was introduced in the second half, and I think he absolutely bossed the game. Always in good positions, asking for the ball, superb passing and vision didn't get forward much. I personally love those kinds of players. I think he is a superb signing for us.

It was a fun game and nice to see the Arsenal again, can't wait for the next game.

ED001 happy birthday mate, you know if you feel a bit lonely, forgotten, or just need someone to cheer you up remember. You can always change your birthday on facebook!

Have a nice day.

Walcott Walcott Walcott how on earth did you ever manage to convince arsene and the board to pay you such ridiculous wages. The game last night I must say he looked well out of his depth. He's a waste of a squad number and a waste of a hell of a lot of money, and with the wages he's on there is no way we're getting shot of him.

He's unessessary baggage and everytime he plays the rest of the team have to carry him because he hasn't got a clue what he's doing. Ox and Joel are far far better than Theo.

We need to somehow palm him off to someone.


2.) 29 Jul 2016 14:14:26
Hey MKD

Good to hear from you.


3.) 29 Jul 2016 15:19:06
For me he's always had good little patches. But off late he has been useless.


4.) 29 Jul 2016 15:19:37
I don't think cash converters would buy him and they buy absolutely everything lol.


5.) 29 Jul 2016 15:42:54
Walcott is a strange one, a few years ago it always felt like he could be an impact player at any moment.

Defenders don't fear him as much. I think beyond his skill (or lack of) developing, the bigget problem is his confidence.

This is a player who clearly has been sapped of his confidence over the years, between injuries and errors he looks like someone playing with fear and uncertainty in his decisions.

For his sake, I think a loan at the minimum would be best, so he could get a fresh start. I ould be so bold as to say MLS! :P.


6.) 29 Jul 2016 15:57:10
I think we would sell but he is pricing himself out of a move with his wage demands! The boy needs to choose money or a career. He's been woeful.


7.) 29 Jul 2016 17:08:46
ship him off to china.


8.) 29 Jul 2016 17:51:10
China would be good NE 😂.

I'm having an issue with all the British players who are happily sitting on the bench collecting their wages, and doing absolutely nothing to improve. We have too many of those: Gibbs, Chambers, Jenkinson, Ramsey, Theo, Chamberlain. I don't include Welbeck because I respect him for his workload during games, he is not good enough quality wise, but I respect his hard work, plus he has been injured for most of the time. I like Wilshere as a player, but I think he should be sold because honestly we are not getting anything from him. 5 games a season is not good enough. I believe players are being ruined because they feel they achieved something in their life after they get a chance and earn some money while they are young. I think it's more attitude then quality related, England is desperate to have a world class players, by using "world class" I think of Messi, Ronaldo, Suarez caliber, so their newspapers are touting every 18 year old kid who has had two good games in a row a "world class" player. It's sad and embarrassing, because a huge pressure is being put on the shoulders of the young players and they have difficulties to develop mentally, and then football wise.
I'm writing this because I am not happy seeing you sit there smiling, never complaining about game time, showing no ambition at all, just sitting there collecting their wages and making up the numbers, while players like Joel Campbell are not being given any chance.

{Ed025's Note - i see your point MKD and agree to a certain extent, but if those same players started whining and calling the manager they would be labelled as traitors and want away big heads, its a fine line mate..


1.) 20 May 2016 21:33:31
In fairness to Gibbs and Chamber's, we don't know what happens behind the scenes, they may be chomping at the bit to get game time but not given a chance.

Jenks went to West Ham for game time, but injury put an end to that.

Agree about Theo though.


2.) 20 May 2016 21:48:24
This should have been a part of a much bigger post but I pressed send accidentally so it is what it is :) .
I see where you're coming from Ed, but I think if they are not getting a proper game time they should whine. If they believe in their ability they should make noise about it. What's the point of being at Arsenal or anywhere for 10 years and making 20 odd appearances? I think that's a wasted career. As for being labelled traitors for the reasons that are mentioned here, I don't think a reasonable man would make those claims. Put yourself in that situation, would you care? I know I wouldn't. Then it's up to them to prove that their previous clubs/ managers were wrong.

{Ed025's Note - as i said MKD you make some valid points mate, and although at times i will play devils advocate i would lean towards your way of thinking..


3.) 20 May 2016 22:36:01
MKD, if I take one thing from Leicester is harmony in the squad so the mass adds up to more than the sum of the individuals. I understand what you are saying but an unhappy squad will just crumble like a Dutch world cup squad.

Q: What's the difference between Wayne Rooney and a Walrus?

A: One is ugly as butt, smells, weighs 500 pounds and the other is a walrus


1.) 19 Nov 2014 16:40:28
Wow I'd never thought I'd say this, but dags please help him out with a few gags.


2.) 19 Nov 2014 16:49:39
Chris,

Its like Joey Barton trying to outperform Messi :-) .
Fair effort MKD lol


3.) 19 Nov 2014 18:08:14
I'd say more like boumsong trying to teach bramble how to defend 😊


4.) Or falcao trying to teach Sanchez how to score!

Cast.ad wait CR


5.) 19 Nov 2014 20:42:42
Ouch Chris ouch.

I will put that one down to you crapping ya pants because of Saturday lol.


6.) Come on it's not that good but Joey Barton mate, really? :)

Hi Chris my old deluded plastic friend, I knew you wouldn't be able to resist so
that's how you fish lad

Btw you can easily change those names to Jones and Smalling, I bet people won't tell the difference :)


7.) 20 Nov 2014 00:52:05
Um ok goonerMKD, I'll be honest I'm not quite sure of your point, that's how u fish? By calling Rooney names? Is that how it works in the playground haha bless ya, I actually feel sorry for u tbh mate,I really do lol.

So just that I'm clear, u posted that awful,old,recycled joke not to get laughs but to entice me reply and take whatever u perceive in your head to be the 'bait'?

Well done? I really Lost it there for a while. U wound me up a gd'un. Sorry for the attack dags mate it as just MKD's post that wound me up lol, I didn't mean to fly off the handle. It was just his very clever way of disguising the point in to which I was ment to avoid biting.

With intelligence like that are u sure ure not a spurs fan?


8.) 20 Nov 2014 08:13:02
Lol Chris,

All good banter mate :-)


9.) 21 Nov 2014 03:43:07
Once upon a time Chris was a Gooner and a regular supporter on this page - then the accident happened and he suffered a serious blow to the head. Ever since that fateful day he keeps wandering back here out of habit, without knowing why or what purpose and so he just ends up rambling incoherently due to his confusion. So yeah, let's all be nice and stop picking on his obsession and obvious lack of wit. It coulda happened to any one of us.

A Manchester United fan dies on match day and goes to heaven in his Manchester United shirt. He knocks on the old pearly gates and out walks St. Peter in a Arsenal scarf-

"Hello mate, " says St. Peter, "I'm sorry, no Manchester United fans in heaven. "
"What? " Exclaims the man, astonished.
"You heard, no Manchester United fans. "
"But, but, but, I've been a good man, " replies the Manchester United supporter.
"Oh really, " says St. Peter. "What have you done, then? "
"Well, " said the guy, "Three weeks before I died, I gave 10 pounds to the starving children in Africa. "
"Oh, " says St. Peter. "Anything else? "
"Well, two weeks before I died I also gave 10 pounds to the homeless. "
"Hmmm. Anything else? "
"Yeah. A week before I died I gave 10 pounds to the Albanian orphans. "
"Okay, " said St. Peter, "You wait here a minute while I have a word with the governor. "
Ten minutes pass before St. Peter returns. He looks the bloke in the eye and says, "I've had a word with God and he agrees with me. Here's your thirty quid back, now screw off. "

Come on joke of the day right there surely.


2.) United. Moyes. Van gaal. Don't know about the rest of you but I'm in stitches ;)

mate all this media bs is rather predictable. happens every year:
-first we are interested
-we meet his agent, pay the fee, agree wages
-than a "twist" comes out of nowhere
-we are still interested but face a big competition from another club.
-it's quiet for a while
-and than suddenly he goes to another club, apparently his agent is at fault

Hey darren were you betting on Arsenal lately?
