Wonder if he really is off.
I really wouldn't look too much into it. Also why let someone with less ability take the free kick, Gardner and Larsson are our two best free kick takers.
I even said to my dad that in that central position Gardner is better suited than Larsson, you could argue the goal against Arsenal but that wasn't dead centre.
Richardson's set pieces into the box are what are most impressive under O'Neill at the moment.
