PositionMidfielder

Gudjonsson featured regularly for Stoke City in 2000-01 contributing several important goals including two crackers in the 3-2 defeat of Barnsley in the Worthington Cup third round. A very skilful player he was mostly employed in the 'hole' between the strikers and the midfield line where it was thought he would have more influence on the game, although he is equally capable of playing wide on the right-hand side of a midfield four.

Gudjonsson, who is the son of the former Stoke City boss Gudjon Thordarson, joined Coventry City in July 2004 with a two-year contract but he moved on to Plymouth Argyle in December 2004 with a contract to June 2006.
