At attacking the ball when we have a corner, he never gets anywhere near getting his head to it. He attacks the ball as aggressively as a stoned sloth would.
Recently we have had some great defenders that would stick their head in where it hurt.
Obviously one of our better players not knocking the lad as a whole but at least look bloody interested when we have a corner.

We might as well pass the ball back to kiko from a corner and then build from there.

We don't score goals from corners. All of our players are 6'1" (Ayling) or less. Most other sides have 6'10" giants in their box.

We have to devise something more clever so our 5"8' players have a chance.

Lack of height is showing at both ends of the pitch.
Our small and lightweight players are generally brushed aside with ease, even those with pace often struggle to get past their opponent.
Hence why i'm hoping we sign some players with something of a frame.
Last season when watching the Blunts you could see they weren't going be beaten with ease, they we're well organised, solid and strong. Not the greatest footballing team, but last years qualities still shine through in the Premiership. Norwich playing the more intricate stuff, but look where they are in the table.

Sheffield United still look most likely to score from corners this year too. Fizz a good ball in and attack the bloody thing. It works!.
I watched them the other night and their players were busting a gut to get their head on it. I know we have a short team but they don't even seem to bother even trying to get their head on it.

Ben White's been our best player this season.
