That comment has already be made and largely dismissed on previous pages. Not too short to be a CB, especially in a league where strikers are often shorter now and less reliant in the air.

Does FDB use a DM as such. There is always a sitting midfielder but TBH it's more how it used to be where a midfielder is expected to do everything instead of these narrowly defined roles. 'Total football' after all. So the deepest will sit at any point in time but they rotate naturally. Who knows, just killing time until the next announcement

That's good just came up on a transfer 'latest' page ( maybe not so latest then)

The more decent young players we can get the better . We do seem to have gone from no cover on the left to an overload of people who can play LB

He's a CB that can play LB or CM. Why is 6' too short for a CB? Fabio Cannavaro is up there with one of the best CB's to ever play the game and he was 5ft 9. If played next to a taller CB, height really isnt an issue.

FDB played him at CB for Ajax.

Could only find 2 decent videos of him , one he was in holding midfield and this one at the back . Doesn't help much as he is never under any pressure . I did notice in both videos how slow the game was and not the high intensity that we are use to .

Thx - that's one that I had found earlier too - that game was at a very different pace to what we are used to but he looks composed nevertheless but TBH I would probably look OK tidying up stuff like that too..... well maybe not so much today but.

He's a centre back.. and when has 6ft been short??

He can also play in different positions if required.. but under FdB he played centre back

I think people are confusing Palace with other teams. Palace need 6.3 or taller defenders because our current goalkeepers prefer to stay on the line or are too dodgy coming for high balls into the box.

Just aswel we will have a new one (hopefully)


Someone mentioned it earlier.. most prem defenders are between 6ft and 6ft3

6ft is fine. Especially in today's game where most of teams play on deck

Must be a bit boring watching those games. A much better way to look at a player though, seeing every time they touch the ball, also good that for once the music didn't offend my ears.

Looks very good, but the first few games in the PL (if we get him) may come as a bit of a shock initially.

Height is such a stupid debate in football. Look at most of the best players to ever play the game.. most would be considered not tall. Football wasn't made for the lanky anyway. Basketball was

You do realise that Frank DeBoer is only 5'11" and one of the all time great central defenders don't you?

Very left footed, but always looks for a pass rather than hoofing it.
Sorry..this is just a repeat of Exiled Eagles Bing fottage.

Height does seem to matter more in the PL but is also a indictment why the England football team struggle on the international scene.

Hold on a mo..... Peter Crouch, Height: 6′ 7″. Andy Carroll at 6'3", Per Mertesacker is 6'6''. You don't see tall midfield players though. Oh, don't forget our very own wayne hennessey at 6'6" & Scott Dann also at 6'6"
