Agreed. What Wes lacks in pace, his experience and anticipation allows him to 'know' where an attacker and the ball are probably going to be, so he has it mostly covered.Morgan is 100% a better DEFENDER than Maguire.
Except Mahrez wasn’t a central defender.The Maguire / Morgan discussion reminds me of the views of the fans who sat around me on Mahrez, on the run in to the title.
Whenever a match was close towards the end of a game, which was most weeks, the fans around me would slaughter Mahrez for not tracking back and implore Ranieri to get him off, only to sing his praises when he did something no one else was capable of.
I think this is instrumental to the debate; what role do you want your central defenders to play? Both Maguire and Morgan have differing strengths and weaknesses, each exposed or excelling according to how you want them to play.I think as we attack more under Rodgers his value will be more evident.
