    Griff will hopefully be back in form...

    What a Nakamura would be worth to us though the next two seasons!?!?

    Young Henderson is a good set piece taker but i dont expect him to see too much game time next year. I hope he is loaned out because he has shown he has bags of potential.

    Christie can hit a dead ball and is a lefty but wouldnt say he is a specialist.

    Always wanted us to sign Honda after Naka left. Ki was really underrated at dead balls.

    This is definitely something Lenny be doing, we barely ever practiced corners and set-pieces under Rodgers which doesn't help for the lads trying to put corners in the box.

    Turnbull got a good few assists from corners and free kicks.

    Definitely a market with a lot of potential. The standard's pretty decent over there and they produce good technical players.

    Think it’s more drilling the boys getting on the end of corners rather than the taker himself. When griff is back he’ll provide the goods on the free kicks and corners... just need the big centre halves to be training how to get on the end of them better... or even strikers for that matter. When was the last time since larsson and Sutton have we had a striker who scored from headers?

    But aye defo miss a player who shows aggression attacking the ball in the box and actually wants to get there, no matter how many bodies in the way.

    Former player Liam Henderson delivered a couple of great corners in 2016 Cup final. Hope his brother can do something like that.
    Main problem is guys getting in for the headers. Eddy doesn't seem great at headers, Jozo seems to be the only one in the team who can get on the end of them.

    Agree that Griffiths has that to contribute. My main point was that in the past we've had more options at free-kicks and that makes them more valuable.

    Can't believe I left out Moravcick and after him Maloney in my reference to the MON era!!

    Yes.

    Need someone who is a consistent threat from free kicks, and can whip a decent corner in.
