if we don't sign a centre back in Main Discussion - Norwich City Posted Friday at 21:36 I’m sure we will be told in due course that they left no stone unturned, this last 24 hours, to bring in cover at centre back. 1) Able to head away opposition set-pieces - not a requirement. 2) Able to put foot through ball - not a requirement. 3) A degree in zonal marking a strong requirement. 4) Able to keep possession of the ball between penalty area and centre circle providing no opposition player within 20 yards. 5) Able to make 5-yard sideways passes. 6) Able to pass back to the keeper ad finitum. Probably not many centre halves out there fitting the bill.
