    Not really here
    When we had Yaya, and Balotelli too tbf or even Milner, I got excited when we got a penalty. Now I just feel nervous. We don't have anyone to rely on scoring a pen.
    Jesus is a confidence player. He should NOT be our penalty taker! Definitely not when he's trying that daft fvckin' skip nonsense. Just hit it ffs!

    I'd let Gundhogen take them when he's playing.

    So now that we know Kev doesn't actually mind, we just have him take them from here on out right? Right??

    Agree, he is poor at them. We need another Yaya

    Valid points Marv, but deflecting from the fact it was such a poor effort

    Unless we're already 3-4 up I'd even substitute Gundogan on just to take a penalty - and I'm serious or Bravo to go in goal whilst Eddie takes it and then re-sub him back!

    I don't know if I believe this. He has taken one in his whole professional career. I think he has some responsibility to step up and claim it, he hasn't even taken any in a penalty shoot out which by and large is normally the players picking themselves.

    When Mahrez went down for the pen the first thing he did was look at Jesus and ask who was taking it. It needs to be known from the start who is having it.

    Penalties are all about mentality. You have to find someone who doesn’t care...it’s just nothing...boring.

    Balotelli didn’t even look at the ball. Yaya was the best he thought it’s impossible to miss what’s the fuss.

    I like very much the idea of the penalty try in Rugby. I fancy we should just have a penalty goal in footy.

    Such a poor effort? He struck it cleanly and put it towards a corner. You make it sound like it he blazed it over the bar or dribbled it wide. It was a good save reinforced by cheating.
