Yep and this encourages players to go down with the slightest contact in the box. Even more so than before. You cant blame managers for teaching their players to play the dark arts because ultimately it's going to gain you points. It's a fucking hit show. Zero consistency. 

 

You actually can blame them for teaching their players to play the dark arts, depending on how you feel about he ethicality of it.

Buried in the general hoo-ha is how shit Alisson and the goalkeeping analysts are on penalties. Do they ever get one right ?

On the late penno I said to my daughter this guy is not the main taker and the pressure is immense in the 93rd minute so its not going to be a great penalty so wait and see , sure enough right down the fucking middle with Ali managing to get out of the way again.

I'm not a fan of it at all and wouldn't want our player doing it but do you think if you offer Mourinho a cheating 1 nil win with a dodgy var penalty manufactured by Sir Harry King of England and all Nobles Kane than a nil nil he's taking the cheating every single time.

Yeah, Mourinho is.

I've said it before but he'd do better tossing a coin as he might get it right some of the time.

Fake news. Couldn't believe that so I looked.

 

Seems to have faced 7 pelanties in the league during his time here. 3 were scored.

 

His career says 22 faced - 14 scored.

Surprised by that. Maybe my view is coloured by the penalty shoot-outs we've lost with hardly a save made.

A keeper soon is just going to stand there and catch a ball smacked down the middle.

I think a lot of the time a keeper is better waiting to see which way the ball is going as not many tend to go right in the corner and if they do and are hit well enough you ain't saving them anyway.

2 of the last 3 pens Alli's faced were missed by the taker. It is harsh being critical of him on pens. That said, he doesnt look like getting near any of them, that's why I think both he and the coaching staff should work on this. Maybe the info the coaches give him pre game on pen takers isnt up to scratch but every bit helps.

 

He did save one not so long ago, forget who it was against.

Saying that I'd rather have the best keeper in the league than the best penalty saver ...

 

I remember Ipswich's Paul Cooper was fantastic at saving penalties in 1979-80 he saved 8 out of 10 penalties faced....He said he didn't have a technique but once he saved a few he got more confident and then it got in the minds of the player taking them 

 

We had Clemence though and won the league .

I'm always surprised at the success rate of them cocky paneka lobs down the middle. Its always a gobby twat who does it. If I'm a keeper facing one of them arse-holes I can either make a decision to dive left or right or faint to dive then just catch the soft fuckers lob and throw the ball back at him. They do look boss when they come off like.

Alisson has to get credit for the missed penalties I believe. 

Of course - DeBruyne has made one and missed one - players know they need something special to beat him.

    • It was the gimp, I think. 
    • They’re really milking this deal. 
    • I know there’s no time for two club cunts on here but Sporting just need 4 points to clinch the Premeira. Three years ago they were known as the worst run club in world football, when their president paid supporters to attack players at the training ground. Just goes to show anything is possible and you are never as far away as you think. All done on a shoestring budget, with a rookie manager and a bunch of punk kids. Big Seb Coates finally came good.
    • The irony is that almost every other club would kill to be in the position that City and Chelsea are in.
      Everton would be top of that list, yet proudly spout about how they “called out” the breakaway six and spoke for every other club when they called for sanctions against them. The purpose of those sanctions were to allow themselves to be bumped into a position where they could “qualify” for a European place that they hadn’t actually earned as much as anything else and to claim differently is basically a lie.
      West Ham, Brighton and Crystal Palace, with rent-a-quote chairman Steve Parrish, again pontificating about how these teams should be brought to book, yet wanting to null and void last season to protect themselves against possible relegation whilst saying it was morally wrong to play on given lives were being lost. They refuse to see that in applauding City and Chelsea for breaking away, and back into the Premier League, all that is guaranteeing is they strengthen those clubs with Oligarchs or Oil States as owners to continue dominating every competition they are in, effectively taking the competitiveness away from those very same competitions!
      The ESL wasn’t handled very well in its timing or proposed implementation, but the general idea that it would possibly limit the massive money teams and allow others to challenge them was a sound one, but the blinkers were on from the time the announcement was made and the “little 14”, as opposed to the “big 6”, basically decided to hold onto what they had rather than what they might have had. It won’t go away though and they must know that, even if the current voting regulations in the Premier League give them the whip hand, and effectively a veto, for anything the top teams might want to bring in. A quick look at who has won the major prizes in European competition and domestic leagues over the past few seasons will show them why the current system needs changes to be made. They’re all hypocrites though, and will bury their collective heads in the sand while the really big boys dry bum them.
