Most pages say 6'1 only transfermarkt has him at 182cm so I am not sure. 

He really looks more 182cm than 6'1.

I knew our crosses were bad but i didn't know it was this bad! Anyway Zappacosta is great signing,he is great in attack and very good in defense. He can still improve in certain areas.

You'd think so considering Kane's ugly-ass horse face provides a nice target for them.

it didn`t effect the top 2 teams in the league in where they finished but that is crossing percentage so when they did need to/chose to cross they were the worst 2.so there`s room for improvement there..if it was the fewest crosses attempted then it would be more meaningless as they didn`t need to cross but when it`s a percentage of the crosses they attempted that is a failing of doing what they attempted. it would certainly have helped Tottenham with big kane up front and us now with Morata if we can improve there. though I expect if we had Morata last year our crossing percentage may have atleast been abit better.

Even for David Beckham or Kevin De Bruyne, the truth is that a significant percentage of attempted crosses in open play fail to reach the penalty area. Of those which do make it into the box, a significant number are inaccurate and lead to lost possession. Of those which do reach a player of the same team, most come to nothing anyway because the chance is of low quality or is just missed.

Every set of fans whose opinions I've heard, complain about the poor crossing of their players. This includes Man City who have KDB. Crosses are bad not because players are bad, but because crossing is itself bad. It is a very, very low percentage option. There are a whole host of factors which are much better indicators of how effective a player, or a team, will be than the quality of their crossing. Being good at crossing is better than being bad at it, but it still don't mean much.

This. Crossing is no longer part of main way to attack for big side anymore unless you are talking about cutback,low cross or open cross. Their succes percentage is really low.
