What can you guys tell us about  him? He’s been released after several seasons with you and he’s now apparently on City’s radar.

Other than him being a CB I don’t anything about his strengths and weaknesses.

 

Btw - your previous full back Jack Hunt was released by Nigel Pearson

He’s a steady championship centre half.. was in contention for our player of the season. Can’t play out from the back at all though.

 

Got a bad injury to his ankle (or so it looked) about a month ago so didn’t think he’d be fit for the start of next season.

Needs a better, calming CB alongside, then he can be good. He's not one to carry the team on his shoulders. I don't understand why he was made captain at one point.

 

Depends how he is used. In a back 4 alongside a commanding, vocal CB partner he should still be OK at that level as a no nonsense defender.

 

Try and get him to lead, or to play in a back 3 as a passing defender and you will be asking for trouble.

Pros: Solid, honest, good tackler, good in the air.

 

Cons: No pace, can't pass.

Watch out for him being sat on the pitch looking like a cup final loser, happens during most games after being winded or injured. He won’t be in a team wanting to push for promotion.

A usually solid and clever defender, but he has a really unhealthy habit of very occasionally committing fatal errors. Will be decent enough on a free but I wouldn't build your defence around him.

He'll head it away and kick it away all afternoon.

Big heart but zero ball skills.

 


We’ve had quite a number of them at City over the years............🤒

Awful on the ball.
 

Good in the air 

 

Good positional sense 

 

So overall an average championship CB. Could do better, could do worse

Average at best, many on here  including me thiught he was brilliant at first but as soon as we got rid of a calm composed old head in loovens he literally fell to bits.

 

My honest opinion is if you're after promotion look elsewhere but fine for a squad.

Pretty much all of the above posts apart from the guy who said he is clever. He isn’t. He literally doesn’t have a football brain. If there’s a decision to be made he will dither around for so long that by the time he makes his decision the ball will already be in the back of the net.
