Should McGregor have went up for the last corners?

    I expected him to go up for the final 2 corners in Injury time.

    Would you send the keeper up if you were manager?

    We could have sent the bench in for the corners too and still not scored.

    Should see if he’s any good at taking them.

    Have you seen him run? He's not very quick to say the least

    He doesn’t go for corners in his own box :)

    As great as a shot stopper as he is i wish he would come off his line to claim a ball or two, it's causing a lot of problems for our centre halfs staying on his line all the time.

    The players could have gone into Corntonvale tonight with a kilo of cocaine and still not have scored. Never really looked like scoring .
    Yes... most definitely would have had everyone and their granny up for the injury time corner.

    Is McGregor good in the air?
    Better than McAulay and Goldson?
    Better finisher for the second ball?

    Keepers coming up for corners is generally a joke idea. Actually do any damage once in a blue moon, despite the fact it's fairly common for them to do so.

    We could still be playing now and not score! :mad:

    It’s been like that for 180mins against them now, which is concerning.

    Would always send the keeper up in that scenario. Probably wouldn't have worked but nothing else did either.

    For some of the more dubious comments on the thread. We were 1-0 down and got 2 corners in Injury time. I would send my keeper up. I asked if you were manager would you.

    It happens regularly in other games and leagues. It may lead to a goal or could end up them scoring again.

    Some.people should read the original post

    If shagger had left his box it would have been to slap the players who wore the jerseys last night.

    Aye but their presence in the box causes an extra issue for defenders and diverts some of their attention off other players. Found it astonishing he didn't go up for the final corner.

    Why didn't the manager throw on Worrall or Mccrorie for the last 5 mins and put them up front and just lob balls in? All the tippy tappy side and backward passing was a joke and was never gonna work. If ejaria was xlean through and the goalie he would take it by him and then turn back and try and beat him again

    I'm still fucking annoyed, aarrrrggggghhhhhhhh

    He doesn't win anything in his own box when he can use his hands so I'm not sure him stood in the opposing box would have added anything

    He won't come 6 yards off his line for crosses so it seems unlikely.

    What makes you think he could win with his head when he can't with his hands.

    Point out at any point where I have specifically said he could win it.

    I have stated in the situation I would send my keeper up and asked what others would do.

    If he is better at heading the ball than an outfield player we are in troble! I hate keepers going up for corners.

    6 ft keeper who doesn't meet crosses well, would've easily bossed McKenna up there....

    Neither did Goram, or Klos.
    Infact, there was a story around Goram’s time that told us Gough told Goram not to come and to stay out of the way.

    Klos?
    The worst keeper we’ve had with the ball at his feet, went up for a corner?
    Must’ve been a fine header(er):) of the ball.

    Nothing screams desperation/we’ve ran out of ideas more than keeper going up for corner (which we clearly had last night) I’d love to see the stats but how often in the history of football has it worked?!

    Not very often I’d suggest but once the ball breaks the players are so desperate because there’s an empty goal they just bring the opposition down and takes the pressure off them.

    Gough was a better centre half than all the ones we have put together.
