One of worst of penalty misses

Recommended Posts

Absolute shocking penalty effort from Fletcher. Embarassing I'm afraid and third goal defending  was extremely embarrassing.

I will bite.   It was a poor pen. 

 

On reflection, although I said opposite previously - Fletch deserved to take it as it was earned.

 

We move on, such is life.

 

live and learn.

Keeper dives the other way and we’re all waxing lyrical about fletcher. Fine margins.

yep …..if the keeper guessed the right way every time they'd save more than they let in ……..easy to say that a pro footballer should hit the side of the netting and score everytime but very few do that .

I always say for pens now just put your foot through it and hit it down the middle high. 95% of the time the keeper will dive. Unless your a quality taker or the safest option.

Fletcher bottles the big moments which means we need to do better. A 1 in 10 conversion ratio is not going to get you promoted so as much as I like his all riund play and never say die attitude he has cost us a lot of points. 

 

Ramos has scored 5 panenkas in a row. As someone said earlier if you're going to go down the middle it has to go high. 

 

Just an awful penalty.

Got it on target so not sure it was worst pen I have ever seen.

Think yesterday was just one of those games where these things went against us.

I guess it's one of the drawbacks of getting so few penalties. It is almost written in the script that, after waiting so long for a penalty to come our way, it would be missed (or saved).

It was much nearer to going in than Simonson's penalty in play off final. :tongue:

It was a crap penalty, the run up was a bit short and hesitant, so had that fear he would miss just in those seconds before.

 

With the 3rd goal Palmer does look up to see if there is a pass on as we of course needed to get up the other end at that stage. Just enough distraction to then make a mess of it. If it was all square or better I think he would have kicked it straight out. Fine margins

Always love when people say ‘it was a crap penalty’ you just know those same people would be saying ‘it was a great penalty’ if the keeper moved the other way.

 

Happens every time. Even the pundits do it. I remember Yakubu (I think) rolling a penalty slowly into the goal and getting plaudits, and just a couple of weeks later being slammed for being lazy for missing in that way

It was a crap penalty?

 

If he took a quality penalty and it took a quality save, then we could accept that 

 

But to miss that and fluff that one at the end of the first half in our biggest match, inexcusable

Pretty sure this is not true. Where do you get your figures from?

 

BBC stats show he has scored 10 from 69 efforts.

 

For balance, Forestieri has scored 4 from 31, one of which being a pen.

 

(Hooper - 1 from 1 chance !!!)
