It's playing the percentages. It causes panic, it did on Friday after we'd scored. We can't take a decent throw in anyway.

I'm all for inventive set-pieces but for me there's nothing that screams shit tactics more than the long throw. I appreciate it can occasionally be a useful weapon.

I might be football snob but it's not something I've ever associated with Aston Villa.

I agree and it's not as if Cash is our Rory Delap. His throws are far too lofted to really pose a threat.

A long throw into the box is similar to having a corner. It gets the ball into a danger area quickly.

There was one that slipped out of his hands, yes, much like a scuffed corner not passing the first man. Annoying but it happens.

Anyway, just because we've lost a couple doesn't mean everything has gone to shit.

A coach is just what it says on the tin, itís down to the players to implement it. In any case itís a bit fanciful to think that even with a specialist in place everything is going to automatically come off. It just means that the players have a plan for each dead ball situation.

With a set-piece coach, you would think we would be better at defending them as well as creating chances. I think i'm right in saying that we've got some of the worst stats for goals conceded from set-pieces so far this season. West Ham have got one of the best records from scoring from set-pieces and are a very physically strong side so it already doesn't look good.

Not sure if this point has been made but are we not accommodating the wrong players but actually playing players/formation to accommodate the set piece coach?

I'm all for adopting different styles at times but our football has gone to absolute shit and for all the good McPhee has done it appears to have been outshone with rubbish in the last few weeks.

Perhaps we are looking at the wrong person on the bench.....

Great point Nev, there is far too much emphasis on this new coach in our play. Weíve suddenly lost the identity we have been trying to bring to the club, up through the ranks.

Whatís happened to the high press and fast flowing attacking football?

Thatís an interesting point, and one I hadnít considered.

Do you think our recent tactics/ formations are heavily influenced by McPhee and what he wants/ needs for set pieces?

I'm looking for the reason Smith has appeared to abandon his ideology that has served him so well for most of his managerial career. The odd game I can understand but to persist with something that clearly isn't working is baffling. We now play alehouse football, reliant on set pieces rather than good football complimented by set pieces.

There has to be some reason...
