Worth a look? 5 goals tonight, 25 for the league season!

 

But seriously what a prospect and Scotland need to get him in a competitive match asap. 

Be interesting to see where he ends up.  Don't know what you think but I would hope he sees the season out with Huddersfield and gets them promoted while he is breaking scoring records.  Then either stay put in the Championship or take a move to a top Championship or EPL club, arriving pre season rather mid season.  The worst thing he could do would move now and sit on a bench or take a move to Rantic.

 

Some Rhodes facts (from wiki)

Aged 21yrs

2011/12:

League 1: Games 18(4) Goals 25

Cups: Games 1 Goals 2

TOTALS: Games 23(4) Goals 33

 

2010/11: 43 Games 18 Goals

And the last prolific young Scot at Huddersfield scored just 19 goals in 91 appearance:

Until he plays in an official competitive fixture he can still switch to England if they call him up. Harry Potter must play him in first qualifier!

 

My understanding is that if the match comes with an official cap, it means it's an internationally recognised "competitive" game.

 

Fairly certain players can only switch allegiance following B matches, unders and internationals that aren't recognised on the FIFA calendar - most friendlies are.

 

But yes, he has said he has no intention of playing for England as his Dad would be devastated.

 

Comes across as very sensible and hard working in interviews too. I'd imagine he'll be snapped up by the likes of man u this month.

Jordan Rhodes wrote his name into Huddersfield's record books as his penalty beat league leaders Charlton.

 

Rhodes scored his 35th of the season, the highest post-war total by any Terriers player, after Darel Russell had fouled Gary Roberts in the area.

 

Rhodes' goal took him past Iwan Roberts' post-war record, who had scored 34 goals for the Terriers in 1991-92.

 

However, Rhodes needs one more goal to overtake Sammy Taylor and George Brown, who also scored 35 goals in a season in 1919-20 and 1925-26 respectively. Rhodes' goal took him past Iwan Roberts' post-war record, who had scored 34 goals for the Terriers in 1991-92.
