He's too gung-ho to get forward, makes silly mistakes, not the best positionally, makes some very clutch tackles, but he's not the best defender closing someone down.
I want to have a rock at our center back, someone who's extremely tough to get past, well organized and keeps the rest of the line organized, knows where the opposition are located, is capable of following their mark.
TV5's foot skill, passing, etc are all very good, and he's not bad in the air either, but when it comes to actual defense he truly isn't all that great. He gets caught out of position too often, and between he and the other defenders around him they aren't organized enough to close down the attackers.
Thing is, between TV5, Per, and Koscielny there really isn't a sure thing back there. Koscielny has had as bad of a season as you can get and Per is a liability with his quickness, and passing.
