Free kick specialist

Recommended Posts

I know chris martin can take a good direct free kick but i was just wondering if anyone knew if any of the new players are handy at it?

Surman, Fox, Wes, Lappin depending where on the pitch. At goal perhaps Pilkington, who has a strong shot, or Johnson?

We now have so many talented players with a dead ball we''re going to be thoroughly spoiled for choice.

 

Whenever we get a free kick within shooting distance I predict a riot!

Lappin scored a few when he first joined, and when he went out on loan. He''s got a really good left boot on him, you can see by the quality of his crosses!

I seem to remember that he hit the post last season with a great freekick! He doesn''t take them very often, as I think they usually give them to Chrissy Martin...

Pilkington has a fantastic left foot, so he would take the right hand side free kicks, Bennett the left hand side free kicks. Really excited about both of these players after seeing clips of them.

Lappin having a really good left foot is a bit of a myth to me.  Yes he has got a good one in the sense he can whip it, curl it, smash etc however he doesn''t really put it to good use IMO.  As far as I''m aware he has only scored one free kick for us against Luton away quite some time ago.  Also his crosses usually are pretty poor.  Next time he plays (if he does again) you watch his crossing, for every one he gets right there are about 10 well over hit.  I''m not even going to mention his shooting because it''s terrible.

 

I''m not trying to criticise him but I don''t think he has a left foot as good as some people make out.  I would say the best part of his game is his determination and winning the ball.

Against MK Dons Lappin scored a goal from 60 yards but the ref disallowed it because Chrissy we adjudged to have fouled the keeper, wrongly in my opinion. Had that have counted it would have been crazy.
