Andy Robertson is a good 3 inches taller than him and actually looks decent with the cross.

Just to add some stats, according to Whoscored. Robertson is accurate with about 19% of his crosses, Coulson 17%.

Coulson has 88 total crosses of which 15 are accurate. Robertson has 210 total crossea of which 41 are accurate. 

Coulson has played 20 (9) games compared to Robertson's 34 (2).

I'd have Ayala back on lower terms than he was on. Maybe tie a % of his wages in the number of appearances he makes (due to his injury record). 

There has been rumours for the last season or 2 that a player has been actively trying to sue the club. If I recall correctly I'm sure during the season just gone someone on here confirmed it was Ayala?

I would still classify Robertson as pretty small... and I don’t think he’s a very good defender... but if you’re not willing to take him as an example, let’s go Roberto Carlos... smaller than Coulson, a poor defender, yet many (not me by the way) would have him in their All Star XI. Even looking at our own league... Joe Bryan is probably one of the best left backs in the league yet he is the same height as Coulson and not very good defensively. 
 

My point is, height and being brilliant defensively are not necessities to be a good full back. However, I would agree that in a Warnock system, they probably are necessities. And there lies the problem. Under a different manager I think both Spence and Coulson could be excellent full backs. But unfortunately they won’t suit what Warnock wants of a full back.

Joe Bennett is only 5 10 and was a key player in Warnock’s Cardiff side

Have Ayala back? No way, taken us for a ride on occasions with his injury. Don’t wish any ill on the guy - but I hope he remains without a club!

All those players listed contributed to a decent number of goals, which offsets the weaker defensive side.

Coulson only managed 1 goal and 1 assist, and both were when playing as a winger.

the best right back we had in the last 50 years wasn't the tallest.fella...but he was quick, could tackle and had one of the hardest shots in football...played 400 games in 10 seasons...be surprised if anyone here now gets close to that

Luke Young didn't play 400 games!

Wiki says Andy Robertson is 5'10" and Coulson is 5'11".  Transfermarkt says Hayden is shorter, but is that old data?

Coulson is 5ft 7".

Wiki is wrong, as far as I know.

Unless he's had a growth spurt since I was last in the stadium, because he's usually the shortest player on the pitch.

I think the beard takes up a lot of his energy so I doubt he has.

    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
    • Surprised by Quest as last week they were talking about how abuse of refs isn't right. But they has to be something done want some sort of VAR  in the championship as is very much a big spotlight on it. If a ref makes a blunder it can hinder their career like the Blackburn ref he hasn't had a game since.  I don't want VAR to rule of finger nail offsides but if they could see these game defining incidents would be alot less controversy and loss in reputation for the refs. As that ref must be feeling very anxious his decisions been shared all across social media right around the world. If was VAR the spotlight wouldn't be on him he wouldn't be receiving the abuse. Its needed to protect the refs really otherwise spirals out control.  In league 1 or 2 isn't the same like spotlight on it doesn't matter as much.
