Alright lads, Swans fan here, came on your forum to see what you guys are saying about taking Tudur Jones off us. To be honest, most of us in Swansea can''t believe we''ve got anything for him, I''m not sure if it is £250k but if it is I''d say we''ve got the better deal there. Saying that however I don''t think he''s a bad signing for a League One side.
He has been unlucky with a bad injury at a crucial time and before that setback he was doing okay in our then manager Kenny Jackett''s side. Jackett liked the no nonsense kind of football-win it in the midfield and hoof it forward to a big centre forward. Tudur Jones worked well in that. However, when d our recently departed manager Roberto Martinez came in he completly changed the way we play football. He quickly got the team playing total football-quick passes through the midfield, keeping and maintaining possession. Tudur Jones wasn''t quick enough and didn''t have a clever enough "football brain" to fit into that kind of team. He couldn''t fit into the midfield and was never gonna maintain a place. And I don''t really think he''s Championship standard. Also, given his height I''ve always been disappointed by his lack of ability in the air. But like I''ve said, for a League One side he could be a decent signing. With you guys obviously looking to bounce back and chase promotion he''ll be a very decent battler and he''s gonna be hungry for football given the last few years of his career. A tuesday evening kick off at Carlisle with the rain coming down and he''s not gonna go missing for you. In that respect, he could do well for you.
Anyway, I wish him the best of luck at Norwich-his injury couldn''t have come at a worst time in his career. A lot of people here really wanted him to do well given his Welsh roots.
