He has always been an excellent shot stopper in my opinion (which to me is job one). His passing isn't the best ever, but it has improved massively. Where he was always at fault was commanding the area on set pieces. He has improved leaps and bounds there. He's not world class. But if he keeps the ball out of the net, and has some solidity in front of him so they can develop a relationship and know when who is going to clear what, that'll be good enough for us.
