I just like a goalie that comes and catches the ball . It wasn't even a difficult one to come for and he actually stepps into the player in front of him . He had a clear sight of it . I am 6ft4 and even at 52 I would have caught that one . Granted I would have been too stiff to get my foot on Bolasies effort .

How did we manage to dominate the game, hit the woodwork three times but still end the game with less shots than Palace?
Unbelievable how we can finish the game without a clean sheet when we had so much of the game.
These set pieces are fast becoming a joke and unless he appreciates that sometimes they can be the difference in tight games we're destined for mediocrity under him, regardless of how much young talent we have dotted around the pitch.

This obsession you have with whether we practice set pieces or not is really bizarre. Never seen one poster be so worked up over something so trivial

Attacking set pieces are rarely, if ever, the difference between a mediocre and a good team.

That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying the regularity of goals we concede from set pieces could be the difference between us finishing in a mediocre 8th or a respectable 4th. Plus the amount of goals we score from set plays (or not as the case may be) could also be a significant factor.

People rave about Spurs and their great pressing play and new brand of football but 40% of their goals have come from set plays this season, according to the official Premier League website. Over half of Palace's goals have come from set plays as well. Both teams above us in the league and both teams would kill for the attacking talent we have.

We've scored the most amount of goals in the league from open play which is great, but imagine if we put time, effort and a bit of ingenuity into our set plays as well? At both ends. We'd be higher up the league than we are now with less goals conceded that's for certain.

its not trivial though, is it. We seem to concede by set pieces every game. and if we were better at taking corners, we probably would have won last night due to the number of corners we had.
I have to return some videotapes.

It's not trivial though is it, we concede far too many times from set pieces and Martinez admitted that he doesn't work on them.

It's a worry.
