    Pointon created 2 good chances for others. Both missed. We should have been 2 up

    Watching a video of their goal, who sets up our set pieces? Smallwood ending up marking a bloke who looks a solid foot taller than him which turns basically into a free header.

    Last season we conceded 50% of our league goals from set pieces, which was the highest in the league. I don't see the point of just lumping all 11 in the box in the hope that we can defend a corner.

    A carry over from last season. Obviously the management do not see that is an area that needs to be addressed - like having an effective player who can take our corners and free kicks add to this season a mobile ball playing cb in the three that we have failed to bring in assuming Odisuna is not going to start.

    It's just that though - put everyone in the box and hope the mass crowd prevents a chance while simultaneously giving us no chance to score on the counter.

    Criminal genius, mastermind stuff.

    He did try to address it with McDonald and Taylor, to be fair.

    It's not like it went unnoticed.

    Yes makes no sense. Put Smith or someone with pace on the half way line and drag 2 of theirs back.

    They have been scoring for fun at home so whatever happens the defence is looking a lot better

    Well I am glad my prediction was rubbish. I thought we'd be stuffed. Give Pointon a start.
