Most were low across the face of the 6 yard box. Could never work out whether it was his crosses that were too hard or if the strikers weren't gambling. He never played with White

I think that could be said of most of our crosses - even now this season and with different players.

We need to mix it up with some low crosses drilled into the 6 yards box and then others that can go in high but need to beat the first man.

Generally our set pieces, corners and crossing into the box is very poor. I rarely get excited over getting a corner as nothing usually comes from it and we also fail to pick up the 2nd ball.

Something I think needs to be worked on in training.

As for Newton his attacking play was far better than Jennings.

I did watch. I don't remember many assists and a regular complaint among fans was his inability to find one of our players in the box with his crosses.

I was being facetious and not historically accurate about White.
