I know that not everyblogger here is a fan of the US National Mens Team, but for those of us who are, the news of Jozy Altidore’s season loan from Villareal to The Tigers has to be welcome. Hull’s fairly weak up front, as these things go, and as Andrew Hush says:
In some ways, this move is a win-win for Altidore. If he is successful and scores the goals to keep Hull up, a permanent move may be in the cards, unless Villarreal is so impressed that it recalls him to its first team. If things go well personally but Hull is relegated, his stock will nonetheless be high. Even if he struggles and Hull goes down, Altidore has a full season in England under his belt and, at 20, time still on his side.
Terrible quality video of Altidore’s first goal for Villareal…about 25 seconds after entering the match.
