    The wall was (L-R looking at them) Reid, Mackie, Pep and Lansbury with Cohen behind them...

    I don't think it mattered - the free kick was top-drawer; up there with Beckham in his pomp.
    All credit to McGugan.

    I thought he'd said they lined up the wrong way round so I'd assume Reid should have been at the other end.

    Even though it was a good free kick, I said as it was being lined up that the wall should be another step over as McGugan can get a lot of bend on the ball. I also think if Lansbury had jumped towards the ball he might have blocked it but wouldn't be critical of anyone as such.

    Lansbury didn't exactly break his neck to stop it.

    If you're not prepared to get hurt to stop the ball then don't stand there.

    Must be halford then. Noone at blame. Also they ALL didnt jump so quit blaming lansbury he did as told and he didnt duck or turn sideways

    I wasn't in the wall - I was in the stand behind the goal. Does that count?

    Did you see how bloody quick the free kick was? Only way Lansbury would have stopped it is if he had decided to jump beforehand and even if he had, if he'd jumped straight up, it still probably would have gone around him. If there was another player on the end of the wall, it would have gone over his head too unless again, they'd decided to jump beforehand and only Reid did jump so I'm guessing there was no group decision or tactic to jump.

    Ridiculous criticism anyway, the free kick started well outside the wall and goal as most of McGugan's do, unfortunately this was one of the rare ones that actually came back on target!

    I think the wall did all it could really, stood firm where it was and positionally I wouldn't criticise a lot really. It was just an exceptional free kick that you sometimes just have to say there isn't really much we could have done.

    Only way we would have stopped that free kick is by having Dynamo in the wall.

    In the pre-match interview Zola seemed to criticise McGugan a bit for doing little (although the report I read might have been taken out of context).

    Adolf Hitler, Bilbo Baggins, the cast of 'Glee', Pink Floyd and the People's Front of Judea weren't in the wall - splitters!!

    The missing man from the wall was Abdoun as he was in Greece.

    Some free kicks are just unstoppable.
