Thread: Nathan Jones

  1. #1

    Nathan Jones

    "They're a tough side to play against because they're giants. They put you under pressure but I thought we handled that really well. We lost two centre-halves and, especially against these, I picked the biggest, strongest side I could pick - apart from our groundsman, who's 6ft 4in!"

    Even taking into account the element of tongue-in-cheek, I find his comments to be quite strange. Fair enough, two of our three centre backs are tall, but then aren't most other teams' too? Keiffer is a lump up front, which again is quite common (Collins for them wasn't exactly small). Other than that, I have no idea where the "giants" reference comes from (insert the obvious punchline about his height.....).

    Id say we are the biggest side in the league and are playing to that.

    Set pieces witn Flint Morrison and Moore in the box.

    Bennett, Vaulks, NG, Murphy and Wilson, are all small - Pack and Nelson are certainly not giants.

    Bennet Vaulks NG and Murphy arent small.

    Average height.

    Re: Nathan Jones

    I don't know how accurate it is but fotmob app has Bennett as 6ft, NG and Vaulks at 5"11, pack as 6ft2, Nelson 6ft.

    Wilson and Murphy more the averageish 5ft8. Then the monsters of Morrison, Moore and Flint.

    It's probably fair enough. Although a few of those heights may be a bit off I'd say they are fairly accurate from looking at the players.

    Bennett must have 3inch studs

    Ha I wasn't sure on his.

    Actually they have Flint at 6ft2, he's more 7ft2 isn't he?

    Okay, they're average height; but I think we can agree they're not giants.

    I think Flints 6 6.

    Re: Nathan Jones

    I think that jones is referring to the situations where height and and strength come into play a little more. Like set pieces or defending them, long balls etc, the positions where we can get the upper hand. I don't think that he's making woeful judgements on the height and aerial ability of Bacuna or Wilson
