What are peoples thoughts on him now? I've always rated him but I have totally got why others have not. Anyone changed opinion for better or worse on the lad? I reckon he's been great this season
(And apologies Gash forgot there was a thread)
He's put in some good performances but he seems so fragile.
All the great CB's had blood and thunder, death or glory, grit and determination. Even the modern ball-playing CB's, the best ones still have that 'wall' mentality in the locker.
Of course, all the best CB's made a name for themselves in a settled defence so there's still time for him to change minds. Here's the conundrum:
Has he played better as we have had clean sheets in defence
Have we had clean sheets in defence as he has played better?
There's definitely a bit of both there, but which way is it leaning?
