Micah Richards, he's good, but he's not a full-back...

Everyone is raving about Man City's Micah Richards, I haven't studied him in great detail having only seen bits of him on tv, but from what I've seen he looks very useful.

Last night for England he was up against Robben, who is one of the best wingers in the world. Richards did quite well, but he looks a bit muscle bound and the talk is he will end up playing in a central defensive role as opposed to full-back where he plays now.

Wherever he plays, ultimately it's about mobility and speed of thought, both in the head and across the ground, coupled with the ability to read the game that marks good defenders from the very best.

Richards is one to watch. City should be credited for doing good work their junior players.
