No longer at risk of being mistaken for a Scouser

Then we agree, nothing about Lindelof is relavant since I never mentioned himYou clearly twisting it and not read the whole post but just one sentence. That’s different to Carrol won header because of his height. I always gave credit to Carrol is good in the air but you didn’t include it.
What I meant was Tuanzebe was never good in aerial duel. But he’s still better than Lindelof because Tuanzebe would have still won header against most player who are shorter than him like Schlupp while Lindelof lost header against Schlupp. This is why I mentioned height. You were replying to my post comment on someone who compare it to Lindelof’s case.
It’s called a good defending when the striker struggled to header the ball easily.
I have explained this before, You don’t just go towards the ball like that, players need to get the timing right when header the ball. Yes it’s true player should attacking the ball first to win the header but not in every scenario.
If he knows he can’t reach the ball by going towards the ball then he’s right not to do so. If every players can win header by going towards the ball first then everyone would have done the same thing. That’s not how heading the ball always work.
