Who do you reckon should be the penalty taker?

Post by Myesyats on Fri Feb 19, 2016 12:46 pm

So? All of the holy trident have missed at least one penalty now. Are they not focused enough?

It is pretty clear that Messi won't give away many of his pens anymore, but when he's away or decides to pass it to somebody else, who should it be?

My personal preference is Iniesta, who's the most composed, experienced and calm in my view. I'm not of the opinion that the biggest star of the team should take them. I think the most emotionally stable one should be doing it.

Suarez, Neymar (and Messi too, but he won't give up that privilege) get easily distracted in these situations. Tend to be cocky.

On top of everything, Iniesta also deserves more goals to his name.

Right now Messi lets whoever of MSN hasn't scored take it in the spirit of the MSN circlejerk, but I'm sure come the important matches he's not going to cede the privilege.

Neymar should definitely not take them. I dont like Messi's approach either. tries the Jedi mind tricks on the keeper and it doesnt work. I prefer SUarez. At least he is no frills and just tries to blast the ball.

Suarez missed today after they reportedly tried to get Masche to take it.

Anyone got career numbers for conversion %?

No need to use brain in penalty shot. Someone brainless with high accuracy should take them

Penalty conversion in UCL, league and competitive NT

87% Messi 58+1 from 68 (4/4 SO)
85% Cronaldo 79 from 93 (2/4 SO)

For Suarez and Neymar I've only league and UCL/Europa conversion ratio in Europe.

76% Suarez 22 from 29
67% Neymar 6 from 9

What an awful execution of a penalty kick that was. In the middle, on the keeper's level. Messi shouldn't give away penos anymore if those dumbasses can't finish for shit.

Never seen a front three so bad at pks Laughing

Surely Iniesta could take them? None of MSN should be any where near them.

Nope. Messi should take them, he's the best. But in his absence (or if he decides to pass it to someone else) Iniesta should be the one. Or Rakitic, hell, even Pique. Anybody not named Neymar or Suarez

messi is still one of the best PK takers in the game today as much as people don't wanna believe it.
in big games should still take em.
is he guaranteed 100% rate? no but no one is, mind you if he misses it doesn't seem to affect him as he seems the strongest under pressure

Pique should probably be taking them ahead of those 3; I don't recall him ever missing one whenever Spain goes into a PK shoot out in a highly critical situation. (I'm joking btw)

That's pretty pathetic I had to even say that (suggesting Pique over MSN, lol)

Iniesta is a good option, after Messi.
