Since the start of this season, Steven Taylor has been positioned on the far side of the box when we take set pieces, obviously because he's the best player in the side for winning headers in the air, and we obviously have a plan for him to head the ball back across goal. However, it doesn't seem to be working. Why don't we just let him do his own thing, and come up with his own tricks from set pieces? We didn't really have a plan for him at the end of last season, and he scored 3 goals. He's a predator in the box, but we seem to be using him in the same position all the time, on the far side to try and head it back across the box. Remember this? - [video=youtube;xk7SSYmyuQs]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xk7SSYmyuQs[/video] And the game before against Brum, came from him running through the center of the box, beating two players in the air and power heading it down into the goal. He's a poacher and is eager to score, why is Pardew using him like this? He's wasted just trying to stand at the far side of the box, attempting to direct the ball back across goal. It's not worked so far, he should just be allowed to do his own thing like last season. I think he started 7 games last season, and in each game got a header or shot on target. He was a proper goal threat from every set piece, now he's just used as a target man to knock things down.
