Hulk or Bulk ........
Now I'll state from the off that I'm not an outright lover of his play. However from all the recent press talk it seems there has been a big shift in the chances of Hulk playing under AVB again.
He was an integral part of the Porto team that AVB won the Portuguese league and Europa League with. He was part of a front 3 in that team and was rated very highly hence his expensive move and the astronomical wages where he is now. I'm on the fence about whether he would be right for our beloved team. To my thinking he is a very strong, direct, attacking player. But, from what little I've seen of him, I can't make up my mind if he is as good as his ratings are, is Hulk really as good as some think?
He's not renowned for his defensive abilities, which AVB seems to like everyone being involved in for Spurs. Part of the ethic that has seen us keep so many clean sheets this season. Also, from the little I've seen, he reminds me of Townsend with his shooting accuracy. With as many, if not more. in row Z than working the keeper. That said he's has got his fair share of goals and we seem to need a bulldozer up front according to some on here.
What do you other Spurs fans think about getting him. That's assuming Levy is willing to pay the price and also Hulk is willing to take a pay cut. (That would show he does really want to join up with AVB again). As I say I can't make my mind up about him so it would be i! nteresting to here your take on him.
