By my reckoning, all our CBs have had bring the ball forward and take a pass off Easty. It's the way we play. Difficult to tell on tonight alone, but certainly signs of promise from him and I'll add that Walsall, at our place last season were one of the better footballing teams we faced (before their season imploded)...so yeah, promising.I dont think Guthrie would be required to be a ball player as such. Dickie is more of the ball player out of defence and was last season with Nelson alongside him. You need someone to keep it simple at the back.
