Penalty Shoot Outs


Recommended Posts

Have we ever won one and does anyone know what the overall record is in them?

 

We have been beaten by Huddersfield, Bradford,  Rotherham and Wolves at least.

 

Why are we so bad at them and is there anything that can be done about it?

Also lost at home to Derby in the FA Cup.

 

Apart from JPT only one I can remember winning at home was v Watford,  Di Canio sent off for getting two yellows disputing one throw in and Pressman nearly broke the net with his winning pen

The Golden Goal worked.

 

Don't know why they scrapped it. 

Wasn't that just in extra time though? What about after that? 

 

And personally I don't see that as a fairer way. If anything I think that's less fair

The aim of football is to score goals and win games. What is unfair about that?  The first person to score wins. No time limit.  

Tennis has a tie breaker that goes on until the best player wins.

I agree with what you're saying it is about scoring goals and winning. 

 

But from a personal point of view if it was 30 minutes of injury time and Wednesday conceded within 30secondss and had no time to rectify it I wouldn't be happy. I'd rather they had a shot at penalties. 

 

And im not sure how practical playing until a team scored. 

 

Could be very interesting if watching in the pub

Didn't Pressman score the winner?

 

A cracker of a penalty if I recall ...

 

I know we won, got out really late, there was a crash on the way down which meant most Wednesday fans arrived close to h/t, a bloke hit his missus in a Chinese in Wednesbury in the early hours on the way back and received instant justice from one of our lot and prior to that a maniac Wolves fan my mate had been winding up at close quarters all game ended up being parked two cars away from us in a car park we were trapped in alone as Wednesday fans for at least an hour.  I can also recall sniffing poppers from a Rasta while playing pool in their pub before the match and everyone was that off their face in there that they thought we were Wolves fans.

 

Returned home happy and very fortunate to be alive at about 4 in the morning.
