Cannot agree on any of that. Hodson is a NI international, he dosent need a League 1 level player to help him out. Sorry, but that's just nonsense.
I have watched him most games this season and fail to see this average to hopeless player you state. He is a solid, unflashy player, who wont get flying as much as Tav, but is a better defender, rarely wasted a pass this season unlike Tav, has miles better positional sense.
I'd take him over Tav anyday. A better and more consistent player. I wouldn't have to worry about him the way I do about Tav, who can be great one game and awful the next.
