    I really miss seeing Huddz play, he is vital to our midfield with great defense and a great threat to offense as well. When talking about a well-rounded player, I don't think there's many in the world that are better than this guy.

    you are not the only one :(

    with tom and luka in midfield together we would have 5 points extra now ! :117:

    and with a world class striker 10 points more = 15 points extra

    47+15 = 62

    1 place :001_005:

    He is such a unique player. I can't think of a midfielder as well-rounded as him. His passes are excellent and dead on, he is built and won't fall down no matter what, he poses great threat on both ends and his legs run in the 90th minute as they would in the first! Such an overrated player, fully deserves a spot in the England team with Lampard's aging now showing. If not a starter, at least on the bench.

    Such a shame....Dont think we're see him again this season tbh. He's a big lad so its going to take him a while to get fully match fit.

    There was a point that I thought he'll never make it....How wrong I was!

    Tom is a massive part to our growing squad as is quality.....

    "Oh Tommy Tommy", "Tommy Tommy Tommy Tommy Huddlestone"...............

    He's my favorite player to watch atm...wish there were some decent compilations for him on YouTube because he's such a smart technical player. Some guy has 2 great Paul Scholes compilations up there consisting of mostly touches, control, and passing. Would love to see a similar thing for Huddlestone some day, because like Scholes, he does so many subtle technical things throughout the course of a game that can sometimes get lost in the shuffle.

    your not the only one to miss him mate, i cant wait to see him back in action. if we can get a class striker who can play the lone role then our 5 man midfield will be awsome if all fit

    The ability to have a big strong body in the middle who can thread a pass is a role we currently can't fill. While Jenas/Pienaar/Niko can give offensive value and Palacios/Sandro can give us some steel, no one else on our squad is so impressive in both aspects other than our other starting central mid. I have really enjoyed watching him improve and the sky is the limit if he continues to keep his nose to the grindstone.

    He posted this about a minute ago on Twitter:

    "Ankle is feeling better, have ran a couple of times fairly easy! But felt ok and no reaction , still can't put a timescale on it though!"

    He wont be back until the end of March........he also said a few weeks back that when he starts to run it'll be about another 3 to 4 weeks until he's match fit.

    I've always loved Thudd. I was so, so happy when we didn't sell him and he really started to realise some of that potential. Definitely a future England midfield lynchpin if there's any justice.

    DISCLAIMER: 'future' England lynchpin purely because he's injured right now and Capello seems insistent on playing Lampard and Gerrard until their legs fall off.

    Unfortunately I can see Huddlestone and that little prick at Arsenal, Wilshere making one unreal centre midfield pairing for England one day.

    Yeah Capello needs to stop tickling balls and play those two. They're both great players.

    Adam Johnson, Huddlestone, Wilshere and either our Aaron or Theo Walcott. NOICE

    Wouldn't it be perfect if he gets himself fit for the match against Real Madrid at WHL.

    He said he'll be back by Wigan away, the international break will give him enough time to get fully fit and not rush things.

    sounds hopeful but I'm sure this will be his last game out if he has no setbacks.

    He's a great player and I love him...but does Sandro deserve to lose his place? Probably not, for now.

    Totally different player, for totally different situations. Huddlestone alongside Modric is perfect for when you want to break down teams, yet Huddlestone still offers enough defensive ability against your "lower" teams. When you then play away, or against Milan etc, then Sandro does the job perfectly.

    It frustrates me that we have such an issue with rotation. As soon as we get options, the "we can't drop (enter name here)" discussions begin.

    Look at how Fergie rotates his squad, Carlo Ancelloti etc. I hope we can finally find a healthy level ground for rotation.

    He trained for the 1st time today and hopes to be fit for our game against wigan in 2weeks , miss him badly great player. Hope he doesn't have any more setbacks as he already has resulting in a few extra weeks out. COYS
