Can remember Beckham putting in a few good corners, as well as free kicks and balls crossed from open play!
I suppose its true its not been an OT tradition as such, but I can remember Joe Jordan scoring a few headers direct from corners, but can't remember who it was who took the corner kicks?
Anyway I say we need a specialist coach for corner taking, or Jose needs to get players to practice as long and as hard as Beckham did, since his best two ever corners won us the CL and led to our glorious treble! Cannot be more of an incentive than that surely?

We'll never have a good corner taker at OT due to the steep inclined players have to climb to kick the ball. There should be some sort of trampoline system imo.

Its a valid point, but then oppositions manage to take decent corners and they don't get to train at OT?

I'm struggling to remember last time we scored directly from a corner kick! Come to think of it last time we got a ball into the box from a corner that caused any problems whatsoever?


What is wrong? Hitting first man, over shooting, hanging balls that goalkeepers came and take with ease, whipped in corners that disappear near the opposing corner flag.. what is happening does nobody practice this art anymore at OT?
New to Utd pal?

Hitting the first man is how we do it

I always thought Andy Hinchcliffe took a great corner.
