Set pieces

It's embarrassing at how many goals we conceed from and the fact that we seem like scoring any either.
Help get the club back to Darlo by helping to spread the word about the "Back to Darlo!" fund. The image on the right will be constantly updated with the latest total so please feel free to use the image link below the thermometer on your own signatures, blogs, websites, etc.Image

I'm afraid that set piece goals are not aesthetically pleasing enough for our selection of artistes.

Brilliantly put. National North requires a bit more grunt.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Individually all our players (well, from midfield forward) are very good. But there's little variation between them. We would really benefit from a big ugly b****** in there somewhere.

Hatfield brings something more direct but he's been a shadow of himself this season.

It is the corners that frustrate me most when we consistently fail to beat the first defender.
I thought Sousa would be the answer to this but we seem to persist with Rivers too often. I know we don’t have much time to practice set pieces but surely we can do better.
