Jordan Rhodes likes scoring goals

Jordan Rhodes came to everyone's attention a few months ago when he decided to play for Scotland seeing as he was born and raised in the ancient Scottish town of Oldham.  Now he's scoring too many goals for a human so might have to move to playing in the robot leagues.  Or maybe just a better league.

Currently playing for Huddersfield, 21 year old Rhodes scored 4 goals in this weekend's game against Sheffield Wednesday and even though it's in League One, it's still quite impressive that he has now notched up about 80 goals in his last 5 games.  It's not really quite that many, but he's rather good.  The best part about this story is that Roy Keane, the best manager ever according to Roy Keane, released him for free because he wasn't good enough.  Now he's playing at international level.  So the thing to remember from this is that if you go to school in a country for 5 years you can play football for them, Jordan Rhodes is a goal machine, and Roy Keane is worse at predicting footballing outcomes than an octopus.  I miss that octopus.
