    Corners

    Glad we got one today but so poor generally this season.
    If wonder if Duffy practices getting them on target. Surely he can be coached to improve?
    Game after game it costs us - Duffy heading them over or wide.
    It can’t be bad luck.

      Because we always aim it at Duffy and he always misses.

      The deliveries have been top notch (which they weren’t in previous years). It does make you wonder if we need an addition to the coaching staff with a bit more set-piece knowledge.

      How are we so ineffective at corners?
      One goal all season.
      We must have had more than 50.

      How many times has Duffy headed it wide or over?
      I scratch my head , game after game and wonder whether we practice them.
      It’s hard to believe we can be that bad at converting them.
      So so poor.
      I know. Every time we get a corner I think 'This is it. This time it will happen' and then Duffy or Dunk heads it high or wide.
      You cannot fault their efforts though and so It will happen, starting Tuesday ....

      Never mind that end. What about the other end? At least 18 set piece goals conceded by my reckoning. Seems a bit weird to pick on our lack of scoring from corners after a game where we scored from a corner.
      It's probably nice to be Olympic champion. Like winning Gent-Wevelgem or something.

      Forgot about arsenal goal, apologies .
      The one from Duffy at the end when it predictably went over pushed me over the edge and into a rant.
      Gutted by the result . Like everyone else, I’m sure

      Duffy should be made to stay back for Corners.

      Dunky has done fine from corners this season, Duffy has had a bit of a mare the last half of this season. I confidently now predict a Duffy goal from a corner will win us a surprise fixture out of the remaining 5. That's football as i've come to view it.

      You will see many a post from me in total agreement with your sentiment. Especially with regards to Duffy, more often than not he is trying to destroy the ball with his head rather than just getting it on target, hence it ballooning over all the time. Drives me nuts as well.

      What are coaches for? It’s baffling that there seems to be no improvement to his technique when there’s the potential to get cheap goals and cheap points.
      If Duffy was even average at heading , we’d be at least 5 points better off.
      As it is, we have to battle to get more difficult goals.
      I’m shaking my head
