    Height does matter in this game!

    I think that height does matter in this game.
    In 8 games in this season only tall defenders clear out corners. What do you think??

    i have not noticed any 'height advantage' yet but I imagine you'd also need to factor in Heading ability.

    Buffs FC - out of 7 Defenders the 2 players I see heading the most are Alex McLeish (184) and Richard Gough (194). McLeish has the better heading Q and Gough the lowest. (So maybe height is making up for Q?) Height range is from 183 - 194, 2 over 190.

    Celtic Rangers - Alan Higgins (173) and Mark Hay (183). Both have a considerably higher heading Q than the others. However with CR Higgins does everything better so might be an exception and there are no DCs taller than 188.

    *edit - forgot to say I don't have any Aerial Defenders /edit

    I'll let you consider from others posts whether there might be a link.

    PS. T11 does have a surprising amount of freakishly tall players.

    Well - you say short - even the short ones are rarely much below 5'11". That's not short, that's normal height.

    My 2 aerial defenders clear out corners so I dont worry about there heights (one of the actual useful SAs) I havent really noticed anything about height in my experiences

    I've always tried to get defenders 185CM. But offensively I used to have a 175CM winger who scores a lot from corners....

    So in conclusion we get the same: everything is random in this game
