I was wondering how tall he is, the offical site has him down at 5'11

The official site are never correct on that sort of thing. i recall they had Sorondon down as 6'4" or something along those ridiculous lines.

Depends if hes good in the air, can jump well and has good timing he can win most stuff in the air against 6ft players who arent overly tall.

Also its proberly not accurate anyway.

The official sight had Sorondo down as 5'10 or 5'11 and he was easily over 6 ft.

He looks like the rower for Great Britain in the Olympics a few years ago.

Kenny Sansom was quite short, but remains a defensive giant.

He wasnt that much taller than me when i met him at the Kit preview on thursday and im 6ft. I'd say he's about 6'2"/6'3"

RE: The heading point made, I know short arse players (5ft7" etc) who can easily beat some of the taller players to headers, like someone said size allegedly doesn't matter, technique does.

The official sight had Sorondo down as 5'10 or 5'11 and he was easily over 6 ft. The official site randomly changed Sorondo's height as it saw fit.

For that see Tim Cahill; not the biggest player in the world but probably the best offensive header of a ball in the premier league.

Sky Sports Yearbook has him as 6' 4" (not that you can always trust their stats).

I hope Gonzo took note and wore his different height platforms to make sure it was right!:D

As well as Elliot Ward, he has another brother Scott who plays in goal for Crawley and used to be a pro at Luton. Scott is 6ft 6in! :eek:

I remember reading an article in Four Four Two (I think) when all three of them were interviewed together and they were saying how groups of drunk blokes always try and start of them when they go out, just because they are three big guys. I found that pretty weird cos if I wanted to pick a fight it wouldn't be with three 6ft+ blokes! :D
