Why so high up... Cross low, cross early 14:58 - Apr 17 with 251 viewswkj

Again, we are far too high up the pitch when we cross. Trying to cross just feet from the line has it so our attackers are well and truly marked.

It isn't pretty, but other teams are consistently crossing low, and early to the edge of the box. At what point do our attackers realise this?

Getting the ball on the edge of the box is more important than getting it in the box in League 1. We fail to do this time and time again. Occasionally we might make a surges in the middle, but that is nonsense about deep crosses and being jammed up on the touch line is just not gonna work for us.

Was saying this just after Charlton had whipped in a dangerous ball from the corner of the box, then we took it up the other end and messed about in increasingly tight space on the touchline insisting on getting to the byline before trying to get it across, and failing.

Town's set pieces seem to consist of two options,

1 - Hit the first defender, the opposition break up the park, give away a cheap foul and / or pick up a booking.
2 - Play it short, make a couple of passes without looking like getting the ball in the box, lose the ball.

Get it in on top of the keeper or around the 6 yard line - might even get an OG out of it.
