I grew up in Europe, so I watched soccer as a kid.
Big E is too slow to be a defensive midfielder. Kind of like England's national players.
Trust me, lack of pace is the least of our concerns! The inability to pass, control and hold onto that white round thing are far bigger problems. The one player we produced in 20 years who could do that on a world class level (Scholes) we played as an occasional left winger, so he just jacked in international football.
Anyway, On-Topic. I imagine Lids + Kronner as a Free Safety/Strong Safety combo. Lids playing the perfect positional game snuffing out every pass, Kronner laying the big hits up the middle.
