I'm a bit puzzled by Jose's preference for tall players, epsecially in midfield. United must have the tallest squad among the big clubs in the world. What's exaclty the point of collecting a squad of physically big players? No one of the most successful clubs does it: Real and Barca have 1-2 very tall players in the starting 11. Spanish clubs have ruled in Europe over the last 5-6 years with relatively smallish players I'm nost saying that Jose's tactics is dinosaurish. Jose may well be onto something. It kinda explains his love for Fellaini. The benefits of having tall and physically strong players are realtively clear. But there are costs as well: generally, very tall players are less dynamic, flexible and comfortable on the ball in tight situations and are slower over short distances. So, what stands behind Jose's penchant for signing/using tall players?
