    Default Tuds coming good?

    Seems now he's being started he's playing like he did when he was on loan, do we think he'll come good for us this season?

    Definitely puts in a shift. I wish all of our players worked that hard.

    After the Blackpool game he told Colin Fray the new manager has put his arm around him and told him to have some belief.

    Good psychz, innit.

    Just what we need - a fighter, a worker who gets his fair share.
    A good goalscorer full stop.

    I never thought he really got a fair crack of the whip under billy and definitely not under McClown so glad Cotts is giving him a chance and obviously showing exactly what he can do.

    Sooooooooo glad we got rid of Garner instead of him when McClown had decided that our 2 year playoff making side wasn't good enough (still hate the fucking prick). Well done Marcus, keep it up.

    Can anyone see derbyshire being here after Jan? Because if we're needing to fee up wages and get some transfer funds I can't

    Boateng, P Smith, McGoldshit..

    These 3 should go before Derbyshire goes!

    Ive got time for Smith, think he's a great backup. Boat and Goldshit are fair tho, just think Derbyshire will be on there due to the wages he'll be on and the fact that come Jan we should have Miller, Tuds, Dex and Findley to choose from.

    Always liked Tudgay even in his Derby and Sheff Weds day but he's never really had a proper run in the team and think he got taken out when he went a few games without a goal, despite playing well.

    He's been very good in the air in both boxes, made some cracking defensive headers and he's shown he can finish with his feet and his head. Watching the players practicing their shots before the game, he's got the best technique and strike of the ball in our squad for me. Yeah he's not Sergio Aguero but in this league give him chances and he'll get a good amount of goals.

    I thought him and Findley linked up well a few times as well and I bet they've barely played 5 minutes together before? I think it's also worth remembering that these last two games have been tough going for the attack minded players as Hull and Reading have both got numbers behind the ball, harried and not given the likes of Findley and Gunter much space to run at all.

    Did he ever go "bad"?

    He didn't get much of a look-in under McClaren, but a new manager has come in, and has shown some confidence in him so Tuds is now repaying that.

    Thought he led the line very well tonight and should have had two goals (first one was never offside!)

    Players playing with confidence=team playing with confidence.

    I'm not saying he was ever bad, but having rarely been given the chance in the starting 11 we never really saw what he can do day in day out. He is a grafter as said though so it's good to see him finally getting the rewards for his hard work.

    11 Tudgay's and we'd win every game 1-0. Very good performance from him today, and from Lynch.

    Lynch and Tudgay are our 2 most consistant players at the moment, and it's great to see.

    Always liked him, he started off here with a bang, then he kind of fizzled out a bit last season and I wouldn't of been upset if we had let him go instead of Garner. I quesitoned his introduction to the starting line up the other week, but hes played our last 5 games I think and he's been terrific in every game, works very hard, and he can score goals. He will be buzzing in confidence after today's performance and getting another goal, brilliantly took it, and the first goal was not offside in a million years, and both were proper predatory finishes, and he had a pop or 2 outside the box which I like to see, very encouraging and long may his good form continue. I though Lynch was world class tonight, Wes was very solid alongside him and Cunningham was very impressive tonight, looks like a very good player playingl ike that considering he's not played competitively in a year, and come straight in to play 2 full games , well missed last 5 mins v hull, and done very well. I just hope we actually sign him up permanently, I can't see why we can't.

    He hasn't frustrated me in a long time. Which is a good sign.

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    I know he has scored 2 goals these past weeks and i see your point about him working hard but just because he puts a shift in that dosent mean hes any good as shown by dirk shuyt at Liverpool. He cant pass run or hold the ball up agaisnt Hull he was the pits and needed coming off a lot earlier Our best strike force with no doubt is Miller and Findley and come Jan well have Dex and Derbyshire in reserve. Tudgay, Mcgoldrick, Boatang, all need selling and with the free wage space we should buy two more wingers and that will do us fine. Lascelles needs a chance hes an england under 19 international and Arsenal offered 5 mill for him he has a lot more potential than Lynch. PS I am loving that Majewski is playing every game him and Mcgugan link up so well at times its like watching Brazil!!!!!!

    Never in a million years do we need to sell Tudgay! He's an arial threat and a great finisher with his feet, leads the line superbly...even without his 2 goals, he'd still start in my starting 11. How do you know that Lascelles has more potential than Lynch? You watched both of them every game? Or just going on the money offered from A*senal?

    It comes with having a decent run in the starting line up.

    Strikers are all about confidence and playing games.

    Its where Billy went wrong with his chopping and changing all the time up front.

    Play the same players week in and week out and they will perform far better than when you play them every other week or whatever.

    His lack of pace is his achilles heel. His goal was well taken against Reading but he was afforded a bit too much time and space in the box. Currently , Tudgay would seemed to be Cotterill no.1 strikers pick so it's certainly up to him to maintain that position and he can only do that by scoring goals.

    He's got a great attitude and has a phenomenal workrate for a striker, great finish last night too. Hoping he gets a run in the team as he'll fashion out chances for those around him.
