But he’s not a fine defender in today’s world, is he?
 

Depends what you define as good I suppose, for a lower league club maybe hoofing into row z is all that’s required 

 

But he’s horrendous with the ball at his feet, awful passer, poor anticipation, could easily get turned and rinsed

His defending was never an issue, apart from being prone to odd error. The problems came when we turned into a side that needed its centre backs to be able to play a little bit. Not his game at all, which ended up seeing him caught on the ball and ultimately drained of confidence all together.

Agree 100% you've actually summed him up to perfection. Block all day but when he actually got the ball at his feet and had time to  think anything could happen.

True

 

I think it was Boro away under Jos and it was like a comedy sketch at times, he kept getting himself in all sorts of trouble trying to find a man

Good defender at his best, went stale here and it was time to move on for both parties. 

Also think that his strength wasn't playing out from the back and when allowed to do the things he was good at he was our best defender.
