correct, terrific leap on him and he's dead aggressive with it.


This is a good point; being great in the air isn't just down to pure height (even though it helps a lot).


The timing, leap and aggression of a player in attacking the ball are all major factors. Some extreme examples of players who belied their lack of height by being terrific at all the other aspects mentioned are the likes of Fabio Cannavaro and Les Ferdinand. 6"2 is plenty if you do the other things well.


I also feel upper body strength is a big factor - I think the main issue with Skrtel (although he played great yesterday) is he's too lightweight against powerful forwards. The likes of Benteke and Lambert bullied him badly last season. United's forwards were a better fit for him despite their quality.
