View Full Version : A penalty for your life

April 26th, 2013, 12:16 PM
I saw this on F365, thought it could be a decent topic.

Which footballer would you pick to take a penalty with your life on the line? If he scores you live. If he misses you die...

Pick one from your club's history I guess, or anyone you want.

I'd probably go with Cantona from United. Or Dennis Irwin, but that's not very fashionable.

Dwight Yorke.

And I'd tell him to chip it.

1:00 in this video - see you later Seaman.

Me, I've never missed one.

If it had to be a pro it would be Le Tissier. Or Chilavert for the bants

April 26th, 2013, 12:46 PM
Julian Dicks. He didn't give a shit, just fucking belted it.

David Luiz. Because I'm a fucking risk taker.

April 26th, 2013, 12:53 PM
Balotelli, but I wouldn't tell him why

April 26th, 2013, 1:10 PM
Julian Dicks. He didn't give a shit, just fucking belted it.

Great shout to be fair.

Did he ever miss one?

April 26th, 2013, 1:16 PM
Not in this 2 pixel video collection he didn't


That one against Schmeichel at 26 seconds. PICK THE FUCKING BONES OUT OF THAT.

Rickie Lambert

April 26th, 2013, 1:30 PM
RIP Torn.

April 26th, 2013, 1:33 PM
He doesn't miss.

Ian Hendon.

April 26th, 2013, 2:49 PM
David Unsworth. Pretty average player but only missed one penalty in his career where he hit the bar and scored the rebound anyway.

April 26th, 2013, 2:53 PM
Jordan Rhodes. He's been a fantastic penalty taker for Blackburn this season, plus I fucking love him so I could forgive him if he caused me to die.

April 26th, 2013, 4:12 PM
Not Zlatan!?

April 26th, 2013, 4:54 PM
Neil Adams, had only missed once from the spot in his entire career.

Bad Collin

I don't mind who takes it but can I have an English goalkeeper?

April 26th, 2013, 4:58 PM
No idea why but Shearer.

April 26th, 2013, 5:42 PM
Jorg Albertz

April 26th, 2013, 5:44 PM
Peter Devine. That name again - Peter Devine.

April 26th, 2013, 5:58 PM
Anybody who doesn't say Le Tissier is either mental or suicidal.

48 out of 49 he scored, 48 out of bloody 49. Given 1 in 5 penalties are either missed or saved those are fucking ridiculous numbers.

April 26th, 2013, 6:32 PM
Cantona took 20 pens for United.

He sent the keeper the wrong way 18 times.

I'd rather that than Le Tiss squeezing one in (I assume)

April 26th, 2013, 6:36 PM
Danny Higginbotham - don't think I ever saw him take one that wasn't hard, low and into the corner. Even on one particularly windy day against Spurs when the ball blew off the spot about half a dozen times before he finally got to take it.

Peter Devine. That name again - Peter Devine.

That bloke spawned an entire industry in football bloopers videos :)

Yakubu is a good shout as well but the laziness of his run up would probably give you a heart attack anyway.

April 27th, 2013, 8:21 AM
No Chelsea fan, but I'll plop for Lampard.

April 27th, 2013, 8:25 AM
Not Zlatan!?As much as I love him he's missed a few this season, plus he's a bit of a bloody maniac.

April 27th, 2013, 9:24 AM
Yakubu is a good shout as well but the laziness of his run up would probably give you a heart attack anyway.

My god no. Took three for us and missed them all, all of them incredibly shit too.

Mark Noble or Owen Hargreaves (If he could get himself fit enough to take a penalty)

April 28th, 2013, 7:25 AM
Not Marcello Trotta.

I'd get my mum to do it. She's not much of a shot, but at least I know she'd care.

April 29th, 2013, 2:03 AM
Pick your Dad mate, he'd be better.

April 29th, 2013, 4:16 AM
I dunno, I'm pretty rusty.

Is the penalty against Mexico?


April 29th, 2013, 5:10 AM
I am probably the worst penalty taker I know so I'm very glad that I would get to pick someone else.

Romario as I think he'll be a laugh.

Judas Iscariot
April 29th, 2013, 5:25 AM
I value my life so much that I want John Terry to take it when it's moist out.

April 29th, 2013, 7:16 AM
Gaz Baz. The fat wanker.
