Tom Huddlestone bounced back from a disastrous outing against Arsenal but Hull City dropped a 1-0 home decision to Burnley to push them closer to relegation.
Tom Huddlestone had a shockingly bad match against Arsenal on Monday. Personally, he rebounded to at least some extent with a shot on target, two corners won, a blocked shot, a pass intercepted, a tackle won, and a successful cross. It was not enough, though, as Hull City couldn't score against scrappy Burnley and lost to the already-relegated Clarets 1-0 at the KC Stadium. Not good news for Steve Bruce's men as they face Spurs and Manchester United over the final two weeks as they search for survival. May 14 - 9:50 AM

Ex-Spurs performed poorly in midfield against old rivals Arsenal as their give-aways fueled a 3-1 Arsenal win.

Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore arriving at Hull City in the summer of 2013 was seen as very good business for Steve Bruce's side, it certainly wasn't on Monday as the pair conspired to ignite multiple Arsenal attacks. One such give-away led to the foul and free kick that Alexis Sanchez turned into Arsenal's first goal. There were more give-aways that had consequences ranging from good chances to nothing serious but as with so many of Hull City's acquisitions under Steve Bruce, things started out well enough but the value hasn't been sustained.

Tom Huddlestone returns to the Hull City squad for Week 32 action after completing his suspension.

The former Spurs midfielder returns to active duty for Steve Bruce's side after missing the past four matches due to suspension. Huddlestone may step into the David Meyler-sized hole in the starting eleven after Meyler was himself suspended in Week 31. The trip to St. Mary's will be a tough one for the club who have fallen back to the relegation pack a bit after a brief run of good form in March.

Tom Huddlestone's Week 28 outburst was strong but it has all the markings of an outlier performance.

Tom Huddlestone is a favorite here at Rotoworld_PL headquarters due to a great nickname (THud) and his ability to pick a pass that belies his somewhat oafish build. Unfortunately, Huddlestone hasn't had a great season but he did break out with an assist along with seven successful crosses and three tackles won in Hull City's 1-1 draw with Sunderland. We'll celebrate the accomplishment but don't expect it to happen again anytime soon.

Hull City have confirmed midfielder Tom Huddlestone will serve a four game suspension following his sending-off for a reckless challenge on Chelsea full-back Felipe Luis.

However the game at Stamford Bridge will be remembered more for the referee and his failure to award Gary Cahill a second yellow card for diving before tempers began to fray and it was Tom Huddlestone who vented his frustration first as he was quite rightly shown a straight red card for a terrible tackle on Luis. The Tigers’ midfielder will serve a four match ban keeping him out until the FA Cup tie against Arsenal in January – there had been some confusion regarding the length of his absence initially as Huddlestone collected his fifth yellow card of the season prior to his red but the FA later confirmed the player will serve [3] games for the challenge plus [1] game for accruing five cautions before New Year.

Due to their victory over Brighton and Hove Albion in the 5th round of the FA Cup on Monday, Hull City's week 29 match with West Ham United has been postponed to accommodate the Tigers next Cup commitment.

Two more clubs join a growing list of Week 29 absentees as we now sit at only 10 clubs remaining to play, making for difficult decisions ahead for fantasy managers. Steve Bruce mentioned after the match that Tom Huddlestone, Alex Bruce and Liam Rosenior were rested with knocks, so there is a slight shred of doubt to their availability this weekend, but it sounds as if they should be good to go.

With a fairly thin squad, Steve Bruce will welcome opportunity to rest the newly shorn Tom Huddlestone along with Curtis Davies and Allan McGregor against Middlesborough in the FA Cup.

Huddlestone, who has been excellent since arriving from Spurs over the summer, could use a rest. After years as a squad player at Spurs it is likely that he is enjoying being a started and being exhausted by it in equal measure. The opportunity to face off with a lower division opponent offers Bruce the opportunity to rest some of his key starters to ensure that they are fresh for the second half of the Premier League season where so many fast-starting newly promoted sides have found the going tougher.

Tom Huddlestone, after coming on as a substitute against Chelsea, is likely to get his first Hull City start against Norwich this weekend.

Hull looked better as soon as the former Tottenham midfielder entered the match. After seeing that impact, Steve Bruce is highly likely to insert THud into the starting line-up now that he's had a full week of training at the club. Huddlestone's price looks to be a solid bargain at 6.07 now that he's very likely to be starting every week.

Tom Huddlestone, 26, has joined Hull in a three-year deal for a fee in the region of £5m.

Huddlestone will bring proven Premier League experience to his role of orchestrating the attack from a deeper-lying position. Call him a (very) poor man's Xabi Alonso but that's a pretty good thing for Hull to get. Look for THud to be a solid fantasy bargain early in the season.

On the heels of rumors that they were in the lead for his services comes a report that Steve Bruce and Hull have agreed to a fee in the £5million neighborhood.

We haven't seen the medical and the official signing yet but this one seems like it is steaming toward a conclusion and it will be a good one for Hull if it does come to fruition.

Tom Huddlestone has been a popular name this summer and Steve Bruce's Hull City Tigers have been added to the list of teams that might be interested.

Bringing in a player like Huddlestone who is in his prime would be a nice compliment to the veterans that Bruce has been adding in numbers over the course of the summer. What we know about THud is that he isn't good enough to start for Spurs. What we suspect is that he'd be very handy starting for a mid-table or bottom end team in the Premier League. Whether it is Hull, Cardiff, Sunderland or somewhere else, we might finally find out this season.
Mon, Aug 12, 2013 09:18:00 AM

THud has been languishing on the Spurs bench for a few seasons now and a move to a team like Cardiff where he'd play regularly would be good for him.

Cardiff need improvements all over the pitch to compete in their first season in the Premier League. Tom Huddlestone is entering his prime and should be playing regularly somewhere and it is unlikely to happen at Spurs barring a bunch of injuries. He has been linked with Sunderland this summer but a move to Cardiff - who have apparently lost out on Etienne Capoue - would give him a great opportunity. If he moves into a full time role he will be inexpensive in fantasy games.

Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone is set to join Sunderland in a £5million deal.

A number of outlets are reporting that Spurs have given Huddlestone permission to talk to Paolo Di Canio about a move to the Stadium of Light - and it's a move that makes sense. Hudd's first team football opportunities would've been extremely limited next season following Paulinho's signing and Sandro's return from injury, and Spurs could do with the money to aid their attempts to sign a top quality striker. The 26-year-old midfielder is one of the best passers in the Premier League and would add some creativity to a midfield sorely lacking a key to open opposition defences.

Brazil midfielder Paulinho's expected £17m move to Tottenham has moved closer after the player revealed he would be leaving Corinthians.

"The other interest we got was of Inter Milan, but the only offer came from Tottenham. The proposal came, we sat down, analysed it and decided. It was a big decision to go to a big club. There comes a certain point when you need new challenges." - these words came directly from Paulinho in a press conference so it appears the deal is almost done. The talented midfielder's arrival is likely to see Tom Huddlestone leave the club. Sunderland are reportedly interested in taking the 26-year old to the Stadium of Light in a £5million deal.

Sunderland hope to sign Spurs' Tom Huddlestone for around 5 million pounds.

Huddlestone isn't the most mobile of central midfielders, but THudd would give Sunderland a bit of stature and excellent passing out of midfield that they've lacked in recent years. He could also take corners and set-pieces. His sale would be another sign that Spurs are confident of signing Paulinho.
