So, why aren't we scoring enough goals?

A simple fact that I've pointed out to those around me on matchday.

In training videos released by the club, and during the warm ups, our players always hit the corners when shooting (I've coached from 5 up to 9 year olds and this was always the first thing I said, make the keeper work). You watch during a match, it's rare that we make a keeper work. The majority of shots hit the center of the goal or straight at the keeper.

I agree, the quality of the final strike is fairly poor and not composed. That's part of it, perhaps the main part. I'll throw in two more observations: set piece delivery is all about pace rather than placement, we waste 50% of them; we don't commit enough players into the box in general play so rarely get the pinball/ricochet type goals that teams get against us where the ball just breaks right. The number of times I've walked away and said the ball just didn't fall for us. It's not a fluke.
