These things happen in football

 

I can never understand people targeting scapegoats for their annoyance.

 

Id rather fletch miss than some muppet on owlstalk stepping up to take it.

fletcher aint and never has been a finisher I wouldn't have let him take the pen . I went to villa away where he got the winner but that was after missing 3 very decent chances . its a shame he cant finish because if he could he would be some some player

.

You’ve really got to want to take them, Waddle wasn’t keen, others love them, SB needs to find a couple in the latter category.

This

 

He can’t finish - not natural, but very good at his all round play 

 

Hooper on the other hand is an outright finisher, we need to find another him ASAP

He didn't miss - it was SAVED.

 

Not the best, but if you'd have seen Tynan's at Walsall........ the keeper had time to touch both posts & pick it up.

 

Move on.

Reminded me of FF's vs huddersfield. You just knew.

This.

 

The run up, his body language...

 

Had a hunch it wasnt going in before he struck it. Oh well.

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.

 

Michael Owen and Kevin Pressman knew the score with pens.

Said this the minute I saw the run up. 

 

Guaranteed Hooper would have smashed it in like he did Ipswich away that time. Proper penalty that.

Shame as there was plenty to admire again from his display.

Players far better than Fletch have taken worse penalties. 

 

Even with the miss we should have won, deservedly so.
