Hull City FC : Jozy Altidore's future depends on attitude

Altidore’s time with Hull City had mixed results. While he did finally manage to earn regular playing time after enduring a wasted season in Spain a year earlier, Altidore struggled with inconsistent form and scored just one goal.

He showed glimpses of the ability that made him a $10 million transfer, drawing free kicks and penalty kicks and dishing out assists, but also reminded us of his age with mistakes and missed opportunities.

That said, Altidore did grow as a player during his time in England. Facing some of the world’s best defenders, Altidore held his own at times and showed an increased understanding of the game with his improved passing and ability to hold the ball under pressure.
