Orient fan here, went all the way to Carlisle for a guff 4-1 defeat, but some interesting points.

Our winger Dean Cox gave what looked like a goodbye to the fans after the game, George Porter was brought on when we really needed him. Are they both leaving?

Also, Carlisle's Francois Zoko is way too good for League One, he was immense today. Lee Clark and Terry McDermott were there today. Huddersfield bound?

out of all the strikers Leicester could sign Maynard, Rodriguez, Jutkiewicz, Lambert etc.. we sign the most over rated one in sharp, he did not cut it at Sheffield utd and is not exactly prolific, i would of prefered Rhodes. Sharp is no better then we already have.

Believable3 Unbelievable0

You could of never signed lambert and sharp is still to agree personal terms

Agree0 Disagree0

Forget lambert mate u would have more chance with wayne rooney lol

Reading would not be able to afford Huddersfield young talent Jordan Rhodes and Bradley Wright-Phillips from Charlton Athletic but Rhodes could be joining soon if the royals sell any of there most expensive players such as winger Jimmy Kebe for around 2 million to Leicester City, West Ham or Cardiff or goalkeeper Alex McCarthy for around 1.6 million to Leeds and as for Ebanks-Blake and Adam Hamill they will only on loan for the rest of the season join Reading if Kebe goes to Wolves and also St. Ledger is linked from Leicester to Reading and would only happen within the next phew days because Reading have many opponents against them.

Instead of his usual trick of unsettling players at other clubs, now Ba at Newcastle, the Premier League should tell rubber face to concentrate on his upcoming Tax Fraud case and his possible time in HMP. Englands next manager? Your having a laugh!!

Believable6 Unbelievable2

07 Jan 2012 18:49:10
Why you'd think we would want Doyle is beyond me, he is a poor player who can't score a goal for toffee and considering it's goals we're looking for he's clearly not the option. Maynard would be a better option or even Sharp though it looks like he's on his way to Leicester, Fortune and Cox need to be included in the squads and I hope wading give away either of them, Bednar seems to have disappeared, like him to have a chance though. Mattock, Mantom, Wood and Jara out on loan

Jordan Rhodes will definately be staying at htfc for the duration of the season. Dean hoyle and lee clark both know that their money is better invested in rhodes than in the bank.
Jordan is happy but obviously will play top flight football at some point in his career. At the moment he has got a job to do in getting huddersfield promoted
The squad that has been created at town and the style of football is to get into the championship and it would take a silly amount of money to sell him. Afterall htfc sold pilks and peltier for around 5 mill for the pair last season!! HTFC WILL NOT BE SELLING ANY FIRST TEAM PLAYERS OR BUYING THIS JAN!

Congrarulations on beating Wigan in the cup .You fully deserve it and by all accounts where by far the better team . Good Luck for the rest of the season . From a very disgruntled Wigan fan , who is getting used to his team playing without an ounce of passion or determination .

Best team won mate. good luck for the rest of season

Never mind you might just win 1 or 2 matches in the championship next season

Is Jutkiewicz signing actually happening? Do we need two more strikers(Lee). A keeper, centre back, midfielder and striker would be spot on. Any suggestions? Actual credible rumours?

Believable2 Unbelievable0

Yoy know Adkins/Cortese never reveal names of potential signings but please don't encourage any more suggestions. There are already 19 of 'em on the rumours page!

Whether an English test or not, facts are backed up with evidence and as far as I can see you have no evidence to suggest that Rhodes will definitely leave town in January. On the other hand there is a great deal of evidence to suggest that Rhodes will stay at the club at least until the end of the season. This would make the statement about Rhodes staying a fact! The link below confirms it, and before you go down the route of claiming that's it's only a local paper why not type 'Dean Hoyle on Jordan Rhodes' into google, plenty of evidence there.

www.examiner.co.uk/huddersfield-town-fc/huddersfield-town-news/2011/12/22/why-jordan-rhodes-will-not-be-sold-in-january-huddersfield-town-chairman-dean-hoyle-86081-29994272/2/

Believable3 Unbelievable1

Spot on mate. Rhodes and the rest of the lads have got a job that needs doing this season and maybe he will go in the future but not this season and it would take alot of money to sell the lad while he is still in contract. Clark is dedicated to winning games and hoyle is a life long rich loyal htfc fan who has the clubs best interest at heart!

Agree0 Disagree0

Jordan Rhodes is vastly over rated and will not be going anywhere as there are only 2 prem clubs that buy misfits at grossley over rated fees check out Liverpool and Chelsea.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2012 16:22:36
Cox doing well no need to sell, if we do should be round £2-3 million area as cox would score for fun in the championship,Maynard cox straight swap.

dont know how true the nicky maynard transfer is but would welcome him with open arms < we still need a target man asap and that would bring the best out of the likes of mcdonald and emnes give them something to feed off as for rhys williams going if the likes of maynard are valued at £4million then in my view williams is worth double that seen as though he is probably the best player in the division certainly the best ive seen this season home and away keep the faith and UTB

QPR fans need to wake up and smell the coffee! haha You all seem to think big name players will end up at your club.. Well if they are money grabbers yes but if they have any ambition they will join clubs with stability and good managers not some fat person like warnock who complains every week. Pftt you think you can get samba, Hoillet, Collins, Onuoha just to name a few well stop dreaming because you will end up with premiership scraps! RANT OVER.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

And they will be fighting to stay in the prem from now on Bye Bye qpr back to the chumpionship

Re Rhodes - although the lad is an obvious goal machine in league 1 it doesn't warrant all the hype and talk of premiership clubs etc. anyone remember the most prolific goal scorer in SPL last few seasons, Chris Boyd? He couldn't even cut it in the championship and is no sitting at home watching loose women etc with no club. Defrost think all the talk of 4 mill plus is a bit premature

Believable2 Unbelievable4

Boyd could cut the championship,he got 12 goals there in his only season.And id well for Nottingham Forrest.He just never settled at Midlesburgh,mainly down to the style of football they were playing.Were he was expected to link up.And that is not his game.His game is all about goals.In the air and on the ground.He is a penalty box striker.A six yard box predator.His International record for Scotland is decent to.Ally

Agree0 Disagree0

Kris Boyd isn't the same kind of player as Rhodes though.
Plus. League One is better than the SPL lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont talk rubbish league 2 and 1 are poor.The championship is not all that its cracked up to be as well.If it was as good as you lot are making out.They would not be looking to Scotland for players and managers.Levein said him self last year,that he saw more poor quality games there,than any were else.And he was once the Leicester boss.ALLY

Agree0 Disagree0

Rhodes is too good for SPL, HTFC sold pilkington to norwich in the summer who is high flying at the mo. No disrespect to pilks but Rhodes is just as capable to cut it in the premiership. He is still under contract so htfc will not let him go for less than 10 mil!!

Agree0 Disagree0

There is nothing wrong with the majority of red scouse fans, and we need to keep things in perspective. the oldham lad was clearly upset, but when a game is stopped for what some minority numbskull fans are singing then action should be against that few - not the club....COYRs

Agree0 Disagree0

We know that he is not coming to play in the SPL.Its only Celtic that have been linked to him anyway.Grimmer from Aberdeen is joining Fulham.And Allan from Dundee Utd,is joining WBA.So SPL players are good enough to join the EPL to.And I would put money on more moving to,before the window shuts.Grimmer is not even the best kid at Aberdeen.Fyfie is a lot better,and has been linked with Fulham to.Along with a few other EPL clubs.Ally

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2012 11:34:24
Liverpool should be ashamed at what they did to that Oldham boy last night. absolute disgraceful act. Thats why they are no longer liked around the country and opposition fans call them Liverpools. I hope the FA throw the book at them!!!!!!! KICK RACISM OUT!! {Ed025's Note - nothing has been proven yet mate!....but i agree with the sentiment.

Believable5 Unbelievable4

Another muppet on the bandwagon!! One voice should not bring down a reputation of a great football club I haven't seen anything posted about Newcastle fans singin the Suarez song at evra

love reading how any english player that can score a goals, cross a ball , or make a half decent challeng is world class , andy carroll worth thirty million then rhodes must be worth forty million lol , and for rooney being world class your having a laugh if he maybe scored twenty goals a season and ten ever champions league year maybe . the top five six teams in the epl are made up of spanish, french , dutch and portugues , not more than one or two englanders in each team

Believable1 Unbelievable1

Man city - hart, lescott, miller, barry, johnson, richards, hargreaves
Man utd - jones, ferdinand, owen, rooney, young, carrick, smalling
Chelsea - cole, terry, lampard, sturridge
Tottenham - lennon, defoe, huddlestone, parker, king, dawson, walker
Liverpool - gerrard, downing, johnson, carroll, henderson, spearing, shelvey, carragher.?Ǭ

They're off the top of my head alone. Might be more. That's only English, there would be more for home nations.

Agree0 Disagree0

Defoe lammard owen huddleston hardly play terry ferdinand past it jones downing barry carroll well over rated , try barca seven or eigth spanish internatonals ever game bayern munich the whole first team german internationals, how often does anyone from england come to la liga but you pay two hundererd grand a week to pay our players because the english ones aint good enough

Agree0 Disagree0

Why have Arsenal struggled to win trophies in recent times? Because they no longer have a British spine to their team, nothing since Cambell, Adams etc

FACT- Rhodes would walk back to Ipswich to re sign, but clegg and evans wont do the deal.

Believable0 Unbelievable4

Sorry, hes going to Norwich City...

Agree0 Disagree0

Try Sunderland Mate...... Allthough Villa will try for his signature it will be Martin O'Neil that gets the Man! Trust Me!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Rhodes would never walk back to ipswich, and would certainly never go to norfolk, apparantly tractor power has enhanced over the last three years but theres more chance of him jumping on a john deere to ac milan.

Jordan Rhodes is and has just proved yet again that he is the the best striker outside of the premiership-give him a chance and he inevitably score-he goals to chances ratio is phenomenal-maybe only poor old wycombe but thats 5 hat tricks already this season-dean hoyle doesn't need evertons or boltons cash so he's going nowhere tho £10 m from spurs or liverpool may just seal a deal.........leeds/leicster/west ham etc etc forget it guys its top 6 only for the boy jordan

this is no fact but seems common sense, we are not getting billy davies, dave jones or anybody like that we are getting Graham westley which will be annouced after stevenage play Reading, makes more sense.

A rumour i have heard BD & PR met and was offered but after agreeing PR went back on his word and so did BD onm taking the job so since we have had to re-appoint somebody which now looks likely GW.

Transfer Front, Hume to go, Proctor may stay but this depends if we sell mellor, we are reportdely looking at a goalkeeper as back up as i believe we are going to sell Arestidou and loan turner out. Carlise may leave if he does not get more first team chances and felt out of place after the bust up with players & Ex Management PB.

Coutts will sign for PBoro to be re-joined with former manager DF

How much is true we will have to wait and find out.

RHODES has already had a good long sit down face to face chat with Lee Clark & Dean Hoyle in December 2011 and as a result of that conversation the Chairman Dean Hoyle went on the record to say Rhodes is very happy where he is and will not leave for any reason this season, he is 100% committed to getting Huddersfield into the Championship, while he is scoring goals he knows his value will increase and he is a very smart cookie..."My loyalty to Town will pay off" < His own words, Dean Hoyle has over £300.000.000 to chuck around so dont be fooling yourselves Jordan Rhodes is sweet for now!
