Thread: Van Dijk free kicks v Morrison.

  1. #1

    Van Dijk free kicks v Morrison.

    Van Dijk takes on the responsibility to score.
    Morrison goes to the far post to head back, sometimes scoring.
    Our set pieces are too predictable and not sharp enough.

    TBF Morrison had plenty of chances this year he should probably be on 6 goals.

    For me Morrison is superb attacking the ball in the air, defending on the other hand.

    Also they have much better delivery than us

    To be fair, Morrison was being dragged to the floor most of the time

    Van Dijk is the best defender in the world at this moment ffs

    VVD also runs onto the ball, Morrison is already waiting near the 6 yard box

    Yeah why is Sean Morrison not doing as well as one of the best and most expensive defenders in the game?

    There are a number of reasons but principally the static position that he takes up towards the edge of the box. With a floated delivery the best he can often do is to head it back across goal. Another reason is the quality of the free kick and finally the box is too congested with players hoping for a loose ball rather than making space or diverting defenders.
    It’s more about those issues than the player.

    More goals appear to come from headers in the centre of the goal.
    In the past that is the space that centre forwards would try to own.

    Our set pieces lack variation.

    Van Dijk has scored 4 league goals this season for the second best team in the country, if not the world. He’s hardly banging them in, and Morrison should have had about 5, as well as being hauled down at every opportunity.

    What I have noticed with him is he takes command on who’s taking it and where it should go but let’s be honest this discussion is ridiculous

    In fairness to Morrison, we have about 2 possible corner takers and they’re all aimed at Morrison, so he doesn’t have to worry about that
