I like Joao, but he only shows in spots, and is nowhere near consistent - and is unlikely to be in the future. Rhodes has been even less impressive at Wednesday, but has a much better track record of consistency - and at least it's plausible that he could be a real asset. And with better width (which Harris and other possible incomings will improve), the chances of Rhodes coming good increases. But … in the end, I'd guess neither was going to impress as we'd like, and I won't rue the loss of either. But I'm a little concerned about the loss of both. Each would give us (ok, you) different ways to play, and to end up with just Fletcher (the only one that must stay) and Nuhiu (who I love, but if I'm honest, is a bit shit) might limit the attack, or at least give fewer options. At any rate, which we'd prefer is immaterial, as Joao's already gone, and Rhodes will likely be*, too. It's a little odd, all this movement, when we don't know who the manager will be, ergo who he would want. Unless it's gonna be Bullen, but I doubt that. Who knows? *edit: update ... supposedly-respected Norwich ITK is saying that he won't be returning to NCFC. and for what it's worth, I forgot to mention Winnall earlier. But I don't think he gives Wednesday much that Fletch and Nuhiu don't; whereas Rhodes should. In the end, though, I'm envisioning Fletch giving us around 15 goals, and nowt but crumbs from the rest, whomever they are. optimism really isn't my thing.
