I read tat Fifa are looking to change the rules for penalties so keepers cannot psych the takers ou.

Fuck me that is the best part of a shootout

Miserable wankers - things they will do to stop our Emi

How on earth could they enforce that, and what would it involve? A mean stare, a few words shouted at the kicker, what?

I'd imagine the keeper will have to go straight to his line and won't be allowed to move off it until the kicker is set. And won't be allowed to give the kicker a Chinese Burn/blow raspberries/slag off his Mom. Or open his gob at all until the kick is taken most probably!

Hope they stop the silly fractured run up as well then.

See?

I'm not a fan of the short run up either. Although Giuseppe Signiori was good at it back in the channel 4 days.

That bastard John Aldridge did it against us in the league cup semi v Oxford in 1986. The ref did nothing.

I have got on this soap box before, but Aldridge really invented that cheating penalty run up. I hate it.

Jorginho can get in the fucking sea as well.

If he is your keeper that is genius

If you are attacking you would want his bollocks cut off

Such a great game is football

That'd ace, both the tackle and the throwing the ball on to the pitch.

It was brilliant.

I remember that match against Hull where Sidwell (warming up, of course, as it wasn't 75 minutes in yet) quickly threw a ball that went into touch to Gabby to take a quick throw for Milner to lob their keeper.

I had my Hull supporting brother in law sat next to me in the UT that day, and he turned to me and had one of those facial expressions you only really see from displeased football supporters.

As much as I love Emi as our and Argentina goalkeeper and leader I think its only a good thing for football that antics at shootouts will be scrutineered and that such non sporting behaviour stopped.

Such behaviour is clearly not in touch with the spirit of the game and thats clear with the reagrd to the IFAB clamping down and BANNING such antics.
The actual rules of the game are being amended to stop it.
So no one can now argue its fine!
