Signing Hendry Thomas, a former Wigan Athletic member, was one of the bigger moves in the recent history of the Colorado Rapids and promises to help the midfield of a team that will likely miss the postseason in 2012. According to Wigan Athletic blog Pie Eaters Footie, the move to sign Thomas is a great one for the Rapids.
You will never need to moan or complain due to his tireless work rate and effort, which sees him run from the first to the last minute, even if he is injured. On the whole I couldn't say a bad word about him, he isn't an attacking midfielder, so don't expect any spectacular goals or even efforts to hit the target. Nor that defense splitting pass, he can move the ball about, but when it comes to chances Hendry is better at breaking them up rather than creating them.
All in all you are signing yourself a gem of a player who will surely help to beef up any midfield.
The terms of Thomas's contract with the Rapids have not yet been released.
