A lot of the more nuanced tactical stuff can pass me by. I hear people talking tactics and formations and sometimes I'm on board, sometimes I'm just nodding along and hoping no-one asks me a question.
Nowhere has this been more apparent than with Ashley Williams.
I thought he was a great defender and he was great in some games that were being played in a certain way.
When people talk about defending from the front - I have a vague idea about different positions when in possession of the ball and more anticipatory interceptions further up the field but not the in-depth analytical perceptions of some on here.
Williams has really shown me the MASSIVE differences there can be in systems. I thought a good defender would be a good defender in any situation, but he's been chalk and cheese for us and Swansea/Wales. I hope more thought is put into this with our future recruitment by people more knowledgeable than me
