    I was totally unconvinced by Ryan at the start of the season but he has really grown on me in terms of his distribution, shot stopping, team spirit and commitment to the cause. He's justifiably picked up a few MoM awards.

    Unfortunately, the one other thing I mentioned, as did many others, was his height and strength. The know-alls on NSC shot it down to the point where it became a running joke but it IS an issue. He simply cannot command his box and we will concede from set pieces all season as a result.
    This is the reason why we concede so much from corners, he hasn't got the presence to bully forwards in the box at corners

      Lol. What the actual **** was today’s defensive game plan from set pieces? We played man to man with Duffy as the spare man to attack the ball, it failed inside 4 minutes but we still continued with. MEGA LOLZ. Utterly shit but not really Ryan’s fault, more a fault of a poor system and even poorer execution. Abysmal.
      What?

      Pinpointed in his line for all 10/11 corners we have conceded.

      He has part to blame. Mignolet is also a good shot stopper.

      Well that’s just not true.
      Nearest player each time was a defender. He doesn't challenge a crowded area.

      It's like watching Eric Steele.

      I'm not saying he's a poor keeper just that we always look under pressure at corners/freekicks. Our opposition appear to have a common game plan. Crowd around our keeper knowing our main defenders will protect him then put the ball towards the penalty spot or slightly deeper, head downwards towards the posts and score.

      I thought the 2nd corner came out too far for the keeper to go for and I’m sure it was bong at fault as it went over his head

      Walton is playing brilliantly for Wigan. No 2 for next year?

      So who was he marking, oh yes the one who headed it.

      Good to see people agreeing. I completely blame Ryan for this dismal part of our game of defendinng corners. WBA should have scored from four.

      we don't have the likes of Murray at the front post as we conceded 2 goals from set pieces with flick on from a stoke player and today was the same and we have knockeart on the post he is smaller than ryan

      Posted by Il Duce - I like Gus Poyet, but I don't think he would be able to deal with things here. We need a lower league expert, someone who knows how to build a side that can progress us out of League One.

      None of the recent set pieces have been anything to do with Ryan as they've been well out of keeper range, he's a strong lad too so not seen him bullied - opposition tactics haven't actually been sticking the ball on him.

      We have multiple threads, Chris's fault, not leaving players up fault, players on posts, now Ryan...
