Good job he's sh*t!. Imagine how many goals he would have scored if he was any good.

Couldn't disagree more. JRod is best up top alongside Gayle. All this playing in the hole or from the left doesn't suit us and it doesn't help Gayle or JRod.

Rodriguez has 21 goals, 14 of which are not penalties. That is pretty good for someone that hasn't been used as a main striker.

42 goals between Dwight and Jay - play to their strengths. Get them both up top, stop fannying about at the back, get the ball forward earlier and let these two get on with it. They will and do score goals.

This post says it all for me. Well said that man.

Jay Rodriguez is on the radar of Premier League clubs Burnley and Bournemouth

Personally, I'd like to hold on to him, but understand finances will dictate

Burnley could once again look to bring West Bromwich Albion striker Jay Rodriguez back to Turf Moor.
The Clarets did launch a bid for the 29-year-old last summer but were knocked back.
Burnley Express have now reported that Sean Dyche could re-ignite his interest with a much reduced offer.
Rodriguez and Craig Dawson were the subject of a £25m joint bid last summer that Albion chiefs rejected.
12 months on, with the Baggies need to tighten their financial belts after missing out on promotion, they could be prepared to cash in.
It is believed that Burnley bid as much as £16m for the striker last summer, but that he could be available for £5m plus add ons this year.
The report claims a clause was inserted in his contract that would allow him to leave the Hawthorns should they not achieve promotion at the first time of asking.

He's 100% gone imo.

He will end up at Burnley.

Think we should ask for vydra in part exchange

J-Rod did play up front as the main striker though.  We spent a good chunk of the season with Gayle stuck out wide.

much as I believe JRod is over rated at B71, £5M is not sufficient compensation, if we have allowed a clause of that value to be inserted into his contract, it is another example of gross incompetence by the suits IMO.

Agree, he's worth more than £5m.

This won"t be correct. Burnley bid £15m last seaso so do not know where the £5m has come from.

I think we can say goodbye to Jay Rod, you can't blame him for wanting Prem football.
The transfer window for us this time is going to be very interesting, i just hope we don't faff about like we usually do, something tells me we won't, i hope i am right.

What recent appointment or transfer makes you think this will be the case? I hope you are right but approaching 3 months for a manager suggests we have very few plans in place.beying plan A.

Don't trust this board or Dowling to bring in the right players to seriously mount a promotion challenge next season. If jrod leaves I believe his transfer fee won't be used for investment in player's but will be used to pay existing players wages.

I wanted him gone last summer for the fees quoted then, if this £5m is true now then we are truly run by a bunch of idiots and really believe Jenkins is working against our best interests as if he wants us to continue failing.

23 goals and we potentially sell him for £5m? Surely not.... then again this is Albion so who knows?

I'll be inclined to believe the £5,000,000 release clause for Rodriguez as and when it comes to fruition.

In the meantime I'm going to kid myself that nobody's stupid enough to have agreed such a clause.

'Evans' forbid anyone was soft enough to repeat that one again...... (doesn't hold breath)

Last summer J-Rod was in a strong position. There was interest from other clubs and he could have demanded to leave.  I understand that he agreed to commit to the cause, and accept his 50% pay cut for his season rather than demand a move, on the basis that he would be allowed to leave for a fixed fee this summer.  That fee does look too low, but it may well have been what was necessary to prevent him leaving last summer.

We probably had a choice - take it or leave it.

He hasn’t cost us the difference between £5m and what we could have allegedly got for him last summer, as we’d have had to replace him and his goals by signing a replacement.   What it will have cost is the difference between £5m and his true current value, more like £10m, so a cost of £5m.   Worth the gamble for his goals to get us up?  Yes, in my view.  He delivered on that front.

I don’t think he’s a great player at all,  but he gave his all last season and his goals record is a fact.  I don’t begrudge him a PL move now after his efforts of last season, and I feel the same with Hegazi.   Dawson on the other hand sulked and let himself down.

Probably wishful thinking on my behalf, but simply we can't afford to faff about, we only have just over 8 weeks to getin in a manager and then the players.
We need the manager in first so he can have a yay or nay say on signings.

The report makes sense the deal to keep him at the Albion would be a soft release clause. £10m plus his not inconsiderable wages seems a steep price to pay for a season. If reports of a £5m release clause are true I would have to revise my earlier opinion that Premier League suitors  might be a little thin on the ground at that price he becomes a decent squad filler in the 3rd/4th striker role for most bottom half Premier League clubs.

Percy saying its true

Board are dumb AF.

He's supposed to be one of the highest earners in the champo though even on half money so whoever comes in for him must be offering 50k + a week too i'd guess.

We really need to get better at selling players at the right time. We have lost millions by holding on to players to long.

Problem is that if we have to pay them more than they can earn elsewhere in order to get them to come to us, then it’s very hard to get rid of them after 2 or 3 years of a 4-year contract as nobody else will match their wages.

HRK a prime example, Nyom and Livermore as well.  We end up stuck with them.

Not the end of the world, we gambled on getting promoted first time. At least it explains why Rodriguez suddenly knuckled down.


£5 million rising to £10 million is okay for a player his age and previous injury record in the current market.
