He's made a perfect career move. Midfields have to be built around him, and at Spurs this was not the case. He's looking absolutely imperious at Hull. Obviously an England recall would be out of the question as Wilshere is his more-mobile equivalent, although I think Thudd's deep-lying style is more suited to controlled possession football - perhaps Wilshere will develop in this regard. Thudd's a better passer and dead-ball striker. Let the love-in continue!

wilsheres best skill is carrying the ball between the lines with lil bursts then playing off of the attacking midfielders / forwards like ilkay gundogan with a feltham YOI demeanour and haircut

Third Rate Zoo Keepers With Tenth Rate Minds (Windsor Davies), Saturday, 21 September 2013 20:37 (five years ago) Permalink

gamelad brady scored a game finish & assisted the 2nd goal, so steve bruce subbed him off for flair merchant supreme george boyd who set up the winner quite brilliantly

bruce deserves quite a lot of credit for this & how he's set up hull to retain possession and build slowly

elmohamedy (sp?) is a speedy winger/fullback with a decent cross & brain, but thudd & aluko alone make hull worth watching. aluko is like a little buzzing bee who pops up everywhere doing impressive things & skinning opponents. and occasionally thwacking in amazing volleys

this Giaccherini is a striker, maybe they're brothers, Italian football does brothers more than any other major nation I think

someone compared him to dempsey on here not so long ago, seemed kinda otm - not necessarily a good footballer but an effective one. works hard, makes good runs, which makes him look quicker than he actually is. as a result he often does that thing of just being in the right place at the right time. gives off the vibe of being a good finisher whilst still missing potloads of chances. endeared himself to the fans by being prepared to accept that he wasn't going to be the central striker and apparently committing fully to being a high energy presence on the flank, tracks back well etc.

Third Rate Zoo Keepers With Tenth Rate Minds (Windsor Davies), Saturday, 21 September 2013 20:53 (five years ago) Permalink

find it surprising he'd be a #9 then - that sort of player would probably need a skilful & physically dominant player alongside to thrive, mostly for the purpose of distracting defenders

Half-time: Hull 0-3 Arsenal

Hull seemed to have got themselves into this game, and missed a great chance through Aluko, but now they’re well out of it. Even if the first two goals owed a lot to deflections, sloppy play – twice by Tom Huddlestone – was part of their undoing and you have to praise Arsenal too.

Thudd has had a nigh-appalling season

another understated post from (Noodle Vague), Monday, 4 May 2015 20:01 (three years ago) Permalink

the line about huddlestone that he was a 16st xabi alonso cast before the swine of english fitba is about as accurate as those sentiments usually are

his notable skill is being able to drop well weighted passes over 20-60 yards with minimal backlift and a lowish trajectory but with a slight backspin so it sits at the feet of the recipient

it's a neat trick to have but it's also the most common such talent for an english midfielder or pseudo midfielder to have, gerrard, carrick, twp &c

his control and short passing are not especially good

Huddlestone's main virtue relies on having very fast attacking players around him to capitalise on those long balls, he was never going to work well for long in a side as slow as Hull, and that's before you get into his own lack of mobility. Elmohamady is probably their best player and he is no Bale/Lennon.
