I’ve just copied my response to this question on this thread also ….

The bit about Francis Jeffers is an interesting one and maybe not as far fetched as it might sound . Consider for a moment this.

Who has the most experience of what is a “ good” defence , and what makes a “ bad “ defence in a game situation ?

A striker !

An experienced striker will KNOW what type of defender or defence he would hate to be playing against …..conversely, he’ll also know the type of defender : defending he could score against all day long .

That aside, you need to have the quality / caliber of defensive player at the club to teach those skills too.

Atm I don’t think Town has that yet. It is an area I’m fully expecting to be addressed in January window if we are to seriously push on in the second half of the season .
