    Height Of Defenders From The Scouts' List

    I have noticed that defenders from the scouts' list have relatively short heights; some are even below 180 cm. Most defenders are between 175 cm and 185 cm, and no defender is at 189 cm or above.

    I've noticed that as well. Every so often I'll find one at 190 cm or above. But most are like umm, small.

    I'm kind of wondering how a 175 cm aerial defender is supposed to win a jumping contest with a 190 cm striker?

    The tallest defender currently on my scout list is 192 cm. He's cost 69 tokens but has the FK specialist SA. I do wonder if the 69 tokens defenders are most likely to be tall?

    I know maybe wrong example coz basketball... but do you remember Michael Jordan? He was avarage high (or maybe small-medium range) but he jumped higher than anyone

    (my theory of height in this game: still decoration)

    I think Carles Puyol did it. But they are not many that can.

    IRL there are many low players performing very well in aerial duels


    Sergio Ramos is only 183 cm and is a great header

    For basketball, Squd Webb (170cm) was a monster dunker. Tim Cahill (178cm) has excellent heading skills.

    BTW, I ignore height & weight in T11. In many many season ago, I had 168cm DC/DMC who has good heading skills.

    The tallest defs and strikers on the list of my 3 teams are:

    1. 191 v 193
    2. 194 v 187
    3. 196 v 193

    Here are the defenders:





    Scout lists are produced at a moment in time and don't provide all things to all men.

    Is there a point to this?

    PS. Dear Mod, please treat all references to real life in this thread as irrelevant - delete >.< *runs*

    PPS. None are fat enough to make it into my defensive wall
