i notice Macclesfield have appointed Andy Cole as a striker coach (he lives close by) so surely Palace could do similar - we already have Brighty on the payroll for what appears to be a part time position.

Zaha is not a natural goal scorer - his one on ones record isn't great and his positional play when we attack from the opposite flank is poor (rarely makes a run into box - look how often Man City score with Sterling and Sane getting on the end of crosses). This could be worked on.

Similarly Benteke (and Wickham when he plays) seems to hide when the winger has the ball or stays at the far post which makes it difficult to get the ball across to him - if wide player always knew he would make a near post run, for example, that would surely help. Again decent coaching would make a difference.

Agree with point re set pieces - no real method , just put it in box. Surely a couple of routines can be worked on. Dann always got 3 or 4 goals a season making a similar run each game.
