    I would give a try as well. He just has to score, no miss allowed.
    On the other hand Ed wouldn't be the strongest message about our field players and strikers...

    Sadly our penalties say a lot about our overall conversion mentality.
    That has to change.
    Kev won't take them for mental reasons, he hates it.
    Fern the same. Dave as well.
    Great ballers all of them but don't like that pressure.

    Last night I thought Zinchenko would have been my man without Gundy.

    It certainly won't help if Ederson has a penalty saved and then has to immediately sprint 200 yards to get back.

    200 yards? He'd be in the queue at the bar.

    You can't have the keeper take penalties during the game and I'm sure Pep wasn't saying that Ed will take them but he may not have been joking about Ed being the best at it.

    I do remember when Alex Stepney was the Rags penalty taker.

    I'm guessing Pep will appoint Gundo, Zin and Rodri. Leroy might be nominated when he returns.

    Rodri might be a decent shout as an alternative to Gundog when he isn't on the pitch. At least one of them will be present in the starting line-up so makes sense from that score too. Smacks a decent ball on goal so might be worth a look.

    I give you Rogério Mücke Ceni 131 goals from penalties and freekicks :)

    I was looking for José Luis Chilavert but he only scored 67 goals :)

    We’d be better off doing a raffle and the winner gets to come from the crowd and take the next one.

    If Edersen does take the penalties we'll be accused of not showing the opposition enough respect.

    It's the only City raffle I'd ever win - "and now here comes the penalty taker - Fatboy himself"

    I am totally against Eddy taking them in a regular game
