He is at least worth a place in the Irish squad. Those throw ins are amazing.
He has the best throw in the world imo. They are like corners but better lol.
Great stuff.

Who'll be heading in the throw-ins for Ireland?

Robbie Keane is not that tall. Are you going to send Richard Dunne forward for every throw-in? :D
Cheeky git :rolleyes:
We might just bring Dunne forward, why not? :D
Doyle is great in the air and wicked at flick ons. Folan might get the odd game,
especially if we are losing and he is well tall.
Anyway, its not all about height. These throws cause mayhem in the area and
in the ensuing scramble Robbie or someone will be there to tap it in.;)

^^^S. reid is out for the entire season and Whelan has been good so far
(except for the last game vs Cyprus) but he cant even get in the Stoke team
where as Delap plays every game. Im not saying that Delap should be a regular
for Ireland but at least in the squad. His throw ins are a huge weapon and could
be used as an effective Plan B.

Its very one dimesional using his long throws all the time , all you need is a good keeper who can come off his line and catch the ball and they have nothing else to offer.
But he can vary the throw ins as well. Higher trajectory or more arrow like.
Slower, faster, further etc....he can judge them perfectly, so he can aim so
that 'good' keepers wont get near them.
Only found out yesterday he used to be a javelin thrower :D but he chose football instead.

Motd talkin about his throw vs Everton this season.

You have to love Wenger lol.
He did, after all, say this about Delap's throw-ins before their game against Stoke. Oh the irony.:D


Quote:
Wenger said that his side would not become fixated with dealing with Rory
Delap's famous throw-ins today. "We counter by attacking the ball in the air and
by not making too much of a fuss of it," he said. "They score every one or two
months and it is not like a penalty, it is a throw-in. I think you shouldn't be
obsessed by that and try to dominate the game and score goals."

Bill O'Herlihy asks Dunphy: 'Delap for Ireland?
to which Dunphy replied, 'Of course, stick him on with 20 mins to go against the Italians, they would hate it, Bombs away' lol
