What do you do with corners?

With the increased ability of GKs and the amount of blocks defenders make in their own box I am having some games where I get five or six corners minimum. Problem is, I very rarely score from them.

The best success I've had is driving a low pass to the player on the edge of the box and having a pop but after one or two the opponent usually gets wise to that and cuts off the pass. When I launch it straight into the box I find my player is too far from the goal to make a good attempt otherwise it's too close to the 'keeper who punches the ball clear.

What's the best method you've found to increase goals from corners?

    Cross it to near post, or edge of box, and occasionally go for deep cross.
    Probably my most effective method is near post corners. Call your players to near post first.

    Depends where my players choose to stand If I can see a tall player at the front post I'll chip it up for them

    Either short corner or edge of the box for a volley I hate crossing it in I get countered whenever I lob it in the box.

    I do the same but I hate it when people exploit it by crossing to the guy on the edge of the box and shooting from there (across the keeper). Lost a game last week 2-1, and the guy scored both goals from there.

    1) driven passou to the edge of the box
    2) (call player to come close) pass to him, than to someone at the edge of the box
    3) pass to same guy as (2) and rainbow flick towards the area!

    It's not an exploit! It is by no means a guaranteed goal, or even a guarantee to get a shot away every time!
