Really like Mings, but I hate when an opposing player is shooting and he stands off (hands behind his back and all) rather than close the man down.

Going by the amount of penalties given for dubious handballs this season, this is actually pretty clever play. John Terry would give away a hell of a ot of penalties these days with his fling the body at the strike technique resulting in a block by the arm (happened fairly often) if he was playing these days. More a reflection on the game and the way it has gone recently but the hands behind the back I find makes sense.

Like the not jumping at free kicks I think this is a theory that the coaches have decided upon.  I'm pretty sure I've seen Konsa and Engels do it too, I guess standing back should give you a bit more time to judge where the shot is going and in theory give you more time to get in the way.  Whether it actually works or not I'm not sure, I notice the times it doesn't work more than the times it does.  It's one of the things that makes Mings look a bit casual or 'think he's better than he actually is'.

I think it's more he's not a "put your body on the line" kind of defender.  Understandable maybe considering his inury record, but I can think of a few instances where he's tried to get out of the way of a shot.

Its the impression, i have got too......i think he is more comfortable with the finer arts of the game.....but his play is erratic and suseptible to brain farts.

He has some good games and his presence is notable, but he is not always dominant, which sounds contradictory.....I was crying out for unit of. Centre back and when he first arrived, i was very pleased, but he seems to have lost his edge....whether that incident of him standing on the players face, has affected him, i don't know......however, i do think the centre backs are too exposed at times.
