A know this has been mentioned before but when was the last time we scored from a set piece we had over a dozen corners in the first game against aek and a load on Tues but nothing really should be scoring more from these.

Agree0 Disagree0

Usually our set pieces are atrocious mally, but I thought wee Griffiths put in some great balls on Tuesday! Worrying when your striker is the only one who can deliver a set piece but.

Does ma head in mate, the only player that can put a decent ball in fae a corner is Griffiths.

Aindoh we are always going to have a young team. that's the transfer policy. Buy young and sell on. That's where its going wrong. When we buy older players they are over the hill. We need to change that or the young players don't learn.

Corners are shocking. They should be sat down and showed how the lad at zenith was putting them in against us. Best delivery I've seen off someone in years. Every one fired in was a problem to deal with.

This has been a bugbear of mine for far too long.
We have always earned plenty of corners and free kicks with our attacking play, but these past couple of years has seen a drastic fall in the quality and delivery and obviously goals as a result.
I can't believe for a minute that these are not practiced and planned in training and there must be a good few of these International players that can deliver decent balls?
On the other hand we seem to struggle with basic defending, tackling and picking up runners from midfield so maybe our focus is on fitness and not technique, tactics or teamwork?
While I'm nit-picking; we scored a very good goal when KT hit the by-line and crossed for Sinclair and need much more of this from our wide men instead of cutting inside and playing sideways - especially on the right - Forrest and Lustig take note.

It doesn't help when we get a freekick and Ntcham takes it. Outstanding player but he should not be taking freekicks because the delivery is appauling, very rarely gets past the 1st man. As for corners Griffiths is the only player who puts the ball into the right area with pace yet we have no one attacking the ball like an Elliot Stubbs Myallby or Reiper. So if we can't do it when attacking we are not going to do it when defending. Johnny that's the point i made yesterday, projects as we call them are great especially when they come in and make an immediete impact but they also need support and guidance from more experienced players. I'm not buying this they cost £10m+ garbage. Players like Sinclair came in for half that so it can be done. We need the right blend. We have missed out on McGinn so i think we should target a loan deal for James McCarthy with a view to buy. Plenty on here don't rate him but for me he has a wealth of experience and his best days are ahead of him. Broonies long term replacement imo. Anyway hope there is some positive news ahead over the next 2 weeks as we need it. The truth of the matter is when the Board, Manager, Players and Fans are united we are untouchable. Bad decisions, bad results and constant bad press by our haters has worked in dividing us. Maybe its time to unite and get behind the entire club no matter what our views on the last 2 weeks are, we can't change it but we can fix it. If we are united.

LG putting in some great balls is fine but HE is one of our main strikers and should be in there to take advantage of them.
I was told on here before that LG was our best man with a dead ball.
I have to ask? what are the other players doing in training? They should be practising and improving on the basics. Trapping a moving ball/ pass. If right footed, improve the left foot.
Our set-pieces could and should be a lot better. Corners are a waste of time. Everyone clusters in the box and the kicker invariably punts it way over to the other side. Like, the opposition would never expect that.
And as for ball-watching, we all saw the first goal the other night so I don't need to harp on about that.

Maybe they should let KT take the free kick. The guy has a sweet left foot and leave griff who is a serious header of a ball where he should be. And ya definitely some boys need a lesson how to deliver a set piece lik e nitcham. Super players but shocking at crosses and free kicks.

Tim read the rest of my post mate lol. i said it’s worrying when only your striker can deliver a set piece. im in total agreement that it’s not good enough that only our striker can deliver a decent set piece! I honestly can’t remember the last time we scored from a corner by the way! Can anyone remember? To have over 10 corners in a game and not threaten with any is terrible! We all love good build up play and defence splitting passes for goals but set pieces are still a huge part of the game and can dig u out when the other side of your game isn’t on top form!

16 Aug 2018 11:11:44
Our players never seem to attack the ball with any conviction at set pieces. They all seem to be in there standing trying to get little flick headers from a standing start. Whatever happened to the old fashioned stand on the edge of the box and attack the ball like your life depended on it?

Big Jan 😂.

Paddy Roberts is in my opinion the answer to this question and many more.

16 Aug 2018 11:57:45
Well said Tiny Tim and Paddy Roberts is another that didn’t want to be here.

16 Aug 2018 12:29:04
The Paddy Ship has sailed to Catalonia. Like McGinn we have to move on.

Aye Stan your not bloody kidding! 😂😂.
