Stan Lynn.
Stan the Wham, if he was playing now, there would be no need to have a poll, imho our best penalty taker, over the last 66 years, also the first full back to score a hat trick in top flight football, it included 2 pens.

Shaun Teale (Wimbledon penalty shoot out in 1993), Allan Evans - can't recall him missing one.
The top 5 scorers

Allan Evans and Eric Houghton scored the most penalties for Villa 22
Gareth Barry 18
Gordon Cowans 17
Harry Burrows and Stan Lynn 12

Of the best penalty takers who I expected to score in recent Prem times
 Benteke, AEG and Ings all took great pens.

You read it here:
Today versus Leicester theres a good chance we'll get a penalty.
And score a Penalty. So chance to see who steps up.
Stats indicate that Watkins should be the one.
He's taken 3 penalties for Villa scored 2.

The official is Darren England.
Now, he has only officiated us once this season, when Villa defeated Brentford 4-0 and awarded us a penalty! Ings took that one.

Overall he had awarded us 5 penalties in 9 games, two in the Championship (Grabban and Adomah)  and three in the Premier League. (Watkins x2 and Ings) all scored!

Watkins is 2 from 2 when Darren England awarding Villa pens.
I think it'll be Watkins taking the perhaps inevitable penalty today as hes always scored whenever this official has been in charge.


Up The Villa!!

There's no such thing as an inevitable penalty, Footy. I hope you're right though.

So I'll write here that Luca Digne is in the starting lineup against Leicester and he can take a good penalty!

Really? He has taken 1 (one) penalty in his professional career, in 2013.

I suppose we can assume it was good because he scored it (for Lille in a 5-0 drubbing of Lorient).

My mistake then. He takes a good free kick rather than a pen specialist!

Once again Watkins proves he's hit the grass ceiling.

I thought the way we took that penalty on Saturday was sublime.

Turns out that penalty was evitable then.

Versus Man City the Referee is Robert Jones.
Unfortunately Villa have never won in the Premier league when he has been in charge. All 4 times have lost. This season it was to Chelsea and Arsenal.

However he has awarded us 2 Penalties from 10 matches.  Never given any against us.

Both penalties awarded in championship both scored. (By Tammy Abraham) suggests when he awards us a penalty we'll score!
They have both times been awarded at Villa Park

He was in charge for the epic 4-2 win over Birmingham!
And the epic 5-5 with Forest.

Antony Taylor hadn't given us a penalty for 10 years!
And when he last did, it was against Everton!

Today, I am awarded one! Watkins stepped up and slammed it down the middle.
Buendía had the ball initially, but Watkins is the man for who is our chosen one!
