What ever happened to the big Gomez throw in? If I remember correctly, it was as good as having a corner a while ago. Surely Trent or Robbo or Fabs or Hendo can be last man when Virg goes up?

{Ed001's Note - Gomez is playing centre-back, so it would mean both of them out of position. Though even when he did play right-back he rarely used it. We tend to focus on keeping possession from throw ins, we aren't really a 'launch it into the box and hope for the best' kind of team. It would be a useful weapon at times though.}

OP, why would a CB be taking throw-ins on a regular basis? They only do that as a tactic or when we are desperate, none of which is the case at this time, IMO.

Ed, should we be worried about the length of time it takes us to do throw-ins, as I get worried we'll get done for time wasting?

{Ed001's Note - we have had a number of yellow cards for that, even though we take a similar amount of time over them when losing as we do when winning.}

I never knew we were renowned as slow at throw ins or that we've seen many cards for it. Interesting though, I've seen we have the highest success rate at retaining possesion from throws since that coach came aboard. Think about 70% mark so clearly effective to be patient and look for the right option.
