It is. I always felt that Tilly was the ultimate pro. You always knew what you were going to get and it generally is a job that doesn't get credit. But you always thought that for City to progress, we needed something more in that defensive midfield position in terms of passing. For me, Tilly is a couple of inches and half a stone away from being a really good centre back. Scot Bennett is probably the same and Will Dean who I thought was unlucky.SEA that's a brave addition to the thread
If anything, it should make JMT, who could easily have fallen into the same physical conundrum, more appreciated for what he did for us on the pitch.
