Clark wary of Rhodes threat

Birmingham boss Lee Clark is all too aware of the threat Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes will pose his side this weekend.

Jordan Rhodes: Played under Clark at Huddersfield

Clark, then in charge of Huddersfield, signed Rhodes from Ipswich in the summer of 2009 and never looked back as the prolific marksman went on to become one of the most feared strikers outside the Premier League.

Clark, now with the Blues, must work out how to stop him on Saturday as he takes his side to Ewood Park to face Blackburn, for whom Rhodes has already found the net six times since his summer switch from Huddersfield for a fee worth up to £8million.

"You couldn't wish it on a nicer lad," Clark said. "He's one of the best pros I have come across. He is so humble, so polite. But you give him half a sniff and he's ruthless.

"I still keep in touch with him now. If that lottery ticket had come in maybe I might have persuaded him to come down here!

"We have to be right at it to make sure he doesn't produce because he's one of those strikers who, in a game of 94, 95 minutes, has been anonymous but then goes and scores a goal that wins your team the game. He has done that on many occasions for me. I have seen him do it for Blackburn already. We have to be well aware of what he is about."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
