    When was the last time we scored from a corner?

    From a direct cross, short corner or set play where the attack has been unaffected by the defending team (not cleared to edge of box etc).

      Last one I saw was Murray at Brum last season,but I don't get out much.
      If you have mental problems,it might be good manners to tell me before you start the abuse.Thank you.

      Norwich (H) Dunk, Blackburn (A) Duffy and Brum (A) Murray are the last ones I remember.

      Short answer, a while.

      I think you might be right. Albeit the summer in the way, that's nearly a year since our last.

      And making a speculative estimation of 6 corners a game over, lets say 35 games, since then that's a conversion rate of approx 1 goal for every 210 corners.

      Going forward I suspect we should have a look at that, especially since we seem to be very reliant on corners being chances.

      That was the last one l remember seeing too. The short answer though has to be very very few. We won enough corners last night, (don't know the exact number, have'nt seen the stats), but it became quite obvious to me that it just wasn't going to happen. Every corner we took resulted in a long high ball into the box, which the Palace defenders took care of seemingly with relative ease. I think we need to mix it up a bit.

      Dunk scored one for united at the weekend, does that count?

      Considering the aerial prowess of Dunk and Duffy, I find it an eternal source of frustration that we never even seem to come close to scoring from corners.

      I've given up getting excited about them now, quite honestly.

      We've had 64 this season already according to the stats.

      Agreed, although I actually felt we looked more dangerous than usual from corners last night. Dunk's one straight at Hennessey and Glenn's (?, I was in the East Stand by palace fans so couldn't actually see) blocked off the line. With how dominant Dunk and Duffy are aerially though we really should pose more of a threat.

      I think we need a new corner plan! It is 100% certain they will come to nothing. We had endless corners last night and never troubled the keeper
