It wouldn't be too bad if they could head it properly either.
Batth's heading is atrocious.
Lindsay’s is at least as bad, aimless headers that invariably go to the opposition
Another thing is the appalling lack of “shouts” from the defence, there were a number of occasions today when long balls, which if left, would have gone straight to Butland instead they were headed back to the opposition. One from Lindsay in particular nearly cost us.
Given that we can't rely on Shawx as a regular for us I can't believe we have got to Jan 11th and have not brought another central defender in. There has to be some urgency within the club and we are also playing with square pegs elsewhere in defence.
I have a lot of hope that this manager will be the first in a while to sort our defence out, or that he can explain to the powers that be that defence is actually a position on the park and can't be filled by midfielders and strikers - but I thought we would be straight in there from the off and not wasting any time

I'm happy that they're doing the basics now. Heading it away from the back to allow us to reset isn't a bad idea when you look at all the stupid goals we've conceded. I'm content just to stick with this for a few more games and a few more clean sheets before we move into the next stages.
I'm in a very small minority who thinks Lindsay will be a more than decent centre back. He reminds me a little of Ryan when he first came to the club. I'd love to see Lindsay alongside Ryan for an extended run.
What is everyone on about? I'm not just on about today. Do you think if it hadn't been windy they would have chested the ball down when unopposed instead of just heading it anywhere?
I love see a defender that is composed and actually has the ability and awareness to do it.
And me but thought today it was really difficult as even where I was sitting it was really blustery.....think both are not good enough but just making the point it was tricky today that’s all. They just have no confidence it’s so plain to see...
I was appalled by the heading of the ball by both Lindsay and Ba’ath. You use forehead and neck muscles to head the ball . The number of times Ba’ath got underneath the ball and headed it up in the air was horrific. The distribution by Lindsay was mediocre to be generous. The heading was simply poor.
However, credit to him when he got taken out by the Millwall player. He knew he was going to be hit as he went for the ball so well done.
Please for the good of stoke city fuck Danny Baath off. His head is pathetic. A ball comes to him and he throws his entire weight behind it to head a simple back out of play. The bloke is fucking diabolical. I can half cope with Lindsay as I do think he has the heart for a centre half. However that shit house with a wrist band, he is abysmal
