    We are absolutely * at them - particularly when set-piece dumplins like Ntcham are taking them.

    Alan Thompson was the best I've seen - accuracy, power, curve the lot.

    Griffiths is usually spot on with his deliveries. Our best in the current squad by miles. The number of corners we've had in some games this season and been unable to put more away is criminal. We are hopeless with them.

    Can't recall anyone who particularly stood out for them. Think maybe Ki while he was here was quite dependable from corners and Barry Robson was always good with them as well.

    Yip. My three and throw Chuck Mulgrew in there. We have been lucky to have some strikers of the ball. Murdo and John Collins could hit a cracker as well. Thompson and Naka definitely for fitting it through the eye of a needle.:50: Commons on his day. Btw.

    As far as worst goes probaby tosh mckinlay. I remember being at a gane as a kid, not much older than 8 or 9 and being flabberghasted at how he couldnt lift the ball above the first mans knee caps. Truly shocking.

    Aye, I'd add Mulgrew as well.

    I actually think Griffiths puts a lot of good balls in, it's just that we're * at getting on the end of them.

    Aye, imagine him into MON’s team? When we had Henrik, Sutton, Hartson, Bobo, Mjallby, Varga, Valgaeren, Petrov....

    All good to exceptional in the air.

    Wayne Rooney, when he was at Man U, is the only other example of a 9, taking corners, that I can think of.

    Does Messi count? Seen him doing so at Barca when he was the main man in the middle as well.

    I thought of Messi as well, but he's not thought of as an out and out striker, which is what I'm assuming Scotia was asking.

    C.Ronaldo used to take corners too, but that was when he played as a winger.
