      The CL Final goes to penalties - who's your five?
      May 10, 2018 09:56:22 pm
      Not as confident as I'd like to be if it went down to this, but then again I've never been confident going into any penno shootout.

      Bit of fun, who would you have as your five if it went down to pennos?

      Mine:

      Milner
      Trent
      Hendo
      Bobby
      Mo

      For some reason I don't fancy Mane taking one.

      Milner, Trent, Mo, Van Dijk, Robertson.

      Feel like we aren’t really blessed in this department.

      Same, I really don't get why clubs don't do this though. You can guarantee Ronaldo will be down the pecking order, just so he can win the Ballon d'Or if he scores the winning kick.

      We aren't blessed with penalty takers, haven't been for a while, so I really hope we get the business done in 90mins.

      Milner
      VVD
      Robbo
      Bobby
      Gini

      Hendo, Mo and Mane just don't make me feel confident if they are stepping up.

      Only put Mo and Mane down because they have experienced pen taking at the highest pressure. Wijnaldum is a good shout too, forgot about him!

      Don’t think my heart could take it if it goes to penalties. Milner is the best kicker so he should take the first for me. I though of VVD but read on Transfermarkt that he hasn’t taken a penalty in his entire career, same for Roberson and Lovren.

      Milner (22 scored 5 missed)
      Trent (4 scored 0 missed)
      Gini (7 scored 4 missed)
      Bobby (4 scored 4 missed)
      Mo (5 scored 1 missed)


      The other takers I thought: Henderson (1 scored 0 missed) Mané (1 scored 1 missed), Can (2 scored 3 missed) and Lallana (1 scored 0 missed). Added both Can and Lallana because if they’re fit to be at least in the bench and it goes to penalties there is a big chance that they’ll be on the pitch.

      Just to add, looked at Karius and Migs statistics.

      Mignolet: saved 12, not saved 32
      Karius: saved 9, not saved 21

      I'm guessing these are excluding shootouts since I remember Lallana missed his pen v City in the League Cup final?

      Was just coming in here to say, I hope Karius decides just before it goes to pens, to fake an injury so Migs could come on. I don't think I've seen Loris get even close to a penalty and that Migs, in the past has. Then I looked at those records and they are both sh*t!

      Karius 29%
      Migs 27%

      Confirms my instinctive assumption.........if Migs is the answer we’re asking the wrong question....

      If it goes to penalties I'll be extremely nervous of our chances, that is where the experience of Real Madrid would really come into play. Fortunately I don't think it will, if we play as well as we can play then we'll win it in the 90 minutes.

      Yes, you’re right. Just looked at Can’s stats and doesn’t show the penalty he scored in that shootout.

      I just don't get why keepers make their mind up before the kick. Keepers make fantastic instinctive saves all the time from less than 12 yards. They should keep their eye on the ball and react instinctively.

      If the ball is struck cleanly enough they have little chance, but if it's placed or miss hit or to close to the middle they would have a far better chance to save it if they watched the ball rather than dive one way or the other.

      Truth be told I don't get the desire for Van Dijk to take one. I know he's composed on the pitch and everything but he strikes me as the type who'd welly it as hard as he could and tw*t it over the bar. Might just be me though cos I don't trust left footed penalty takers (other than Alan Kennedy). I think nerves might get the better of Trent as well.

      My five (if on the pitch)

      1 - Firmino
      2 - Ings
      3 - Milner
      4 - Henderson
      5 - Salah
