Pontus was there from 2009–14, so presumably some connection there.

Plus Uwe is manager there now and is I think well trusted by the club.

I've just started following him on Twitter. He's followed by Pontus's brother and by Lars Friis. He could've been recommended by any of them I guess.

Our corner to goal ratio must be pretty abysmal. Set pieces so important in tight games.

If I think of all of the key football roles at the club I make it 3 Danes, 1 Swede, 5 English, 1 Scot, 1 Spaniard.

plus quite a few scandanavian players, just feels a little like we are like we are losing our British identity. I dont care if they are from the moon if we go up but just seems disproprtionately influenced

I'm fine with it, I mean the Danish are probably better and more well rounded individuals than us anyway if we're being honest...

The days of long serving one club players like Peter Gelson and Alan Hawley are practically gone. It doesn’t matter where the players and staff come from as long as they are aware of what Brentford FC stands for and hold good its key values.

So what!! How dangerous have we looked from corners or free kicks so far this year?

I think the general set piece scoring rate is 1 goal per 4 games so I guess you're probably right but we have defended them well. Either way, seems like a good move for a good coach.

And I think by and large they do don't they?

I am glad we continually look to improve on what we have and what we do and that we look far and wide. The only factors that matter relate solely to ones abilities to do the job well :sorted:

ISTR that more goals are scored by the defending team than the attacking one from set pieces. Perhaps that’s where we should focus.

Not entirely sure where I bemoaned the lack of one club players. What a bizarre thing to say.

We went back to the bus stop for corners against Derby. Hadn’t seen that for a few seasons.

What is ‘our British identity’ ?
Eddie Hutchison, Andy Woon, the Scott Fitzgerald’s etc?
Scandinavia has a long tradition of liberalism and inclusiveness which I feel reflects the culture being embraced publicly by the club. I for one love it.
At the moment being British is embarrassing hence my new Irish passport

I think, also, that Scandinavian football takes a more academic approach to the game and the qualifications required, whereas the ‘British’ view is just playing a lot is enough.

(banburybee, I guess you have Irish heritage, French residency is a maze... and they say it’s been simplified!)

Aren't you forgetting our Francophone contingent? Mbeumo, Jeanvier (both France) and Benrahma (Algeria) are pretty key, wouldn't you say?

Why has MB had this history of going down the Scandinavian route other than buying a club there? Never really been explained why not Portugal and Spain?

Set pieces?
From Malmö?
They[Malmö], have missed six pens in a row, during this season, but scored the last one, the other week.

For personnel, it’s more than likely to be plain value, with even the largest clubs not paying Championship salaries. That and everyone speaking English better than most natives.

Not a lot you can do as a set piece coach with penalties though is there?!!

Under Simeone, Atletico Madrid have an absolutely outstanding record of goals from SP's:

"Of the 46 goals scored by Atleti so far in 2014-15, 20 have come from free kicks and corners. And in La Liga, the ratio is higher: 17 out of 27. Or almost 63 per cent."
https://www.goal.com/en/news/1717/editorial/2014/12/09/6892822/twenty-goals-from-set-pieces-why-are-atletico-madrid-so-good

That article is a couple of seasons old, but I'm pretty sure their conversion rate is still well up there.

And I remain genuinely astonished why other clubs don't try harder to replicate this, since season-after-season under Simeone, it has made the difference between challenging Real and Barca, and being also-rans.

Set pieces are also the reason England made it to the World Cup semi's... But I think it would be unfair to say clubs aren't trying to replicate this, you just have to look at the increase in the number of goals from set pieces in Denmark in recent years

It will be interesting to see if the free kick changes affect goal outcomes over the season. My initial reaction is that it’s a lot tidier, now that the walls are not being infiltrated or dismantled by the opposition!
