I'm not actually sure he's that good. He's decent, sure, but I'd argue TVC is at least as good, on the basis that he is faster, can pass more accurately, and doesn't look to hoof the ball into the middle of nowhere every time the ball comes anywhere near him. He's a solid defender, but I don't think he's so good at defending that it completely covers his other short comings. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for 'if in doubt, kick it out', but on that logic, Cuthbert is permanently 'in doubt'.

That being said, do I want Cuthbert to start passing it out from the back? Not really. It's a bit like when Joe Hart received lot of criticism because he didn't come for crosses. He started doing it and was so bad at it, that it was arguably worse than him not coming for crosses at all. Cuthbert trying to pass out from the back is almost definitely going to be a disaster, but that's kind of my point. The idea that a professional footballer doesn't have the composure or technical ability to consistently pass the ball to a teammate less than 15 yards away is, in my opinion, pretty unacceptable.

While I'm not expecting everyone to be Premier League standard players, I don't think the expectation that every player in the team be able to consistently pass the ball 15 yards is unrealistic.
