Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes has had a mixed spell at the club following his big money arrival from Middlesbrough, but he continues to have his supporters who hope we can get him back to his form from earlier in his career.
The 29-year-old has only featured five times for manager Garry Monk so far in the 2019/20 campaign, but with Wednesday fans wanting to see more of a punch upfront, having not featured since the beginning of October, on Monday evening he got a run out with our Under 23 side and his goal on the evening helped us to a 1-1 draw against Burnley.
Following the game on social media, plenty of fans thought it was about time we gave him another crack in the first team and partnered him with Scottish international Steven Fletcher to really boost our goals for column and our hopes for a run at promotion this season.
Not everyone would agree though.
We have to start with him with fletcher and give him 6 game min to get sharper and give him the service he needs

Listen to footballers that have played with him and they all say it’s like playing with 10 men.

Been saying a while start Rhodes and he will get 30-35 goals in this league. Hes knocked them in for clubs that cant create. With our wing strength he would be on 15 by now at least. Surely now is the time for Monk to start him. #swfc

Does Rhodes Deserve Another Shot?
