I understand your concern. It’s always difficult to decide whether the hyphen is needed or not. In this case, since “hubcap-stealing” is operating as an adjective for the noun “bastards”, the use of the hyphen is perfect. If we were using “hubcap stealing” as a noun, say, “Them bastards are well known for their hubcap stealing”, then we wouldn’t need the hyphen.Why do use the term “hubcap-stealing”?? Is that acceptable?
Anyway, cheers for the report. Enjoyed it. Agree with most of it. I’ll likely write the same on Deadbat’s report, but I personally thought Norwood’s was a classy performance. He must have messed a few passes up but I didn’t actually see him misplace anything. I thought maybe it was partly due to a less than dynamic opposition midfield, but thinking about it, you’re probably right that the extra body in midfield minimizes some of the weaknesses in his game.
