Im a Huddlestone fan and appreciate what he brings to the team. He gives the team control and is a fantastic passer of the ball. I would have no worries him playing in the role when we have possession of the ball. However, having watched the game on Friday and seeing how we will be setting up though, I don't think him or Ledley are the answer. Mount and Bryson are both attack minded midfield players who will go beyond the ball to get themselves into attacking areas. This will leave gaps and as we saw on Friday, Ledley didnt have the pace to cover these gaps and was left isolated and struggle as a result. Huddlestone obviously lacks mobility as well and I think out of possession we would really struggle with him in there as a team. Im hoping Evans has some pace, however if not think its an area we will struggle this season.
If selling Huddlestone allows Lampard funds to further improve the team then I think we have to consider. We obviously don't have many saleable assets, as we are struggling to offload players, so to continue to build there has to be some significant outgoings. Ive got full trust in Lampard and Morris and the vision of how they want us to play is exciting times ahead.
