    Hudd has entered the arena!!!

    Good to see Huddlestone got a game.
    Bluddy good player who should get more games than Davids.
    Shame about Lennon, maybe Jol can recall Routledge as Jenas is not a winger.

    • defanatley think hudds deserves a bit of a run in the side,maye they should bring on davids a bit later on in the game if needed,what do you think of defoe,doesnt seem to be taking his chances,keane seems able to drop deeper and set up more chances,maybe defoe needs a goal for his confidence.may be its time for the 2 big lads to have a go up front............

    • I would still rather have jenas on the right than recall routledge who, let's face it, is rather injury prone and not nearly as good as Lennon. Jenas is an intelligent player who's good with the ball, can drive forward, set up some plays and score a few goals.

      Plus, the way we play is like a diamond formation without Lennon - Jenas tucking in and allowing Chimbonda to bomb up the right wing, or Tainio tucking in and Assou-Ekotto bombing up the left.

      I'd also prefer to see Huddlestone for Davids, as i think Zokora benefits being allowed that free role in midfield, whereas with Davids in there it's as if the players look to Davids for inspiration, but he clearly can't last 90 mins any more.

      • Some good points glenn but I still feel Jenas is too sporadic with his form.
        He is in and out of games alot.
        On the plus side Jenas can weigh in with goals and his set pieces are not too bad either.
        But when Lennon is back he is an automatic choice.
        Hudd and Zokora would compliment each other better as they play in more disciplined midfield roles.
        Jenas is more of an up and down player.
        He has bags of energy but is not a player that commands games in the middle of the field.
        Davids has great experience and is good to have around, but games pass him by more often than not.
