Short Corners

Stop moaning when we go short. It clearly works. Love turning round and giving someone a good stare when one goes in after they’ve moaned.

We don't have anyone who looks remotely like scoring a header from a direct corner so we need a different tactic.

Shame it's taken 40 games to work that out.

Don’t get why you’d moan about it. Thought it looked well rehearsed yesterday and made perfect factual sense give the relative sizes of the teams. We were never going to score lobbing it into the box, far better to catch them out be playing it short and passing around them. Was impressed with them yesterday, clearly been worked on in training which is good to see.

For most of the season our corners have been dreadful. We've had Lawrence over-hitting by miles and then more recently it's been Holmes regularly failing to clear the first defender. Yesterday made a refreshing change although after the first couple you would have thought Bolton would have had the nous to put a second player out wide to try and cut out the cross.

The angle from these corners is so different to a conventional, straight into the box type which the big, bruiser central defenders are used to and gobble up ad infinitum. More please.

Short corners have long been a source of much amusement  in my little group as they are generally dreadful (even more so than our normal corners), but I have to say that they were quite good yesterday.  Seemed to be well worked and actually (miraculously) led to a goal.  Credit where credit is due.

Our corner delivery is properly woeful too. Rarely clears the first man, and if it does it often goes over everyone. Then you have the very rare balls that hit the "danger area" only to be cleared by one of the opposition's many 7 foot defenders.

Short corners make a lot more sense. Especially when Wilson + Mount get the jump on someone, 2v1 they'll get past anyone.

Can we have wanchoppe? Or is that being silly?

Always remember Wachope preferring to jump a bit higher to chest the ball rather than head it.
