Absolutely strolled it today, a superb team performance. 

Pre-match I'd have rested Kent but delighted to see him look more like his old self today. Perhaps a player who is better playing himself back into form, as opposed to time on the bench.

Yes it was a superb performance, I thought Tav performance was probably the poorest in the team and that's not me having a go at Tav, he had a decent game just that the standard was that high all over the park

Tav was good minus the missed pen. 
 

Morelos 5/10 for me, didn’t do much up top plus gave the ball away in some seriously dangerous positions.

Kent mentioned the pitch. 

We need to make sure our park is as good as it can be because it looked shite today and as a good footballing team we need it to be smooth.

Keep it like that for me....the way we played today!

I agree with you that Patterson was excellent. Reminds me a lot of Hutton.

Not sure about needing to bulk up. He looks pretty sturdy to me.

What a future he has.

Looks pretty skinny to me mate, feel like once he's asked to actually do some defending he'd get bullied. Attacking he looks decent though

Anybody else think Tav should be permanently taken off penalties? How many is that he has missed. 6 in two seasons? For such a great striker of the ball, I've never felt confident when he takes one.

 

83% career conversion rate.

Harry Kane is 85%

Jamie Vardy is 84%

Ronaldo is 86%

Messi 79%

Even the best miss penalties. His penalty record is excellent.

Maybe I'm just old fashioned and think defenders shouldn't take penalties. I also think if you miss two, you hand it over.

As an amateur player, I took penalties. Once I missed one, I never wanted another. At least Tav shows the bravery.

Thanks for the google stat.

Only pass it over if you think there is someone better. Would doubt we would get someone better than 83% in our current squad. 

 

At amateur level I had a team mate I hadn't seen miss a penalty in the 3 seasons I played with him then in one cup game he missed a penalty with 2 minutes left with the score at 1-1 . Game went straight to penalties and he was first up and missed again. 2 misses within 5 minutes and we lost the shootout. 

He was still brave enough to step up the next time we got a penalty and went back on a scoring run. Admittedly he was our main striker but your position shouldn't matter provided your conversion rate is good. Many years ago the Dundee Utd keeper Hamish McAlpine used to take their penalties and rarely missed.

When they called the League last year we were on 67 points from 29 games. 69 points today from 25.

The more you think about it them getting that title with 9 games still to go was criminal.

Had we won our game in hand they were 10 points ahead with 24 points still to play for including us v them twice.

Roberto Carlos took them as well.

Like I say, I'm a bit old-fashioned that way. 

I would prefer someone like Hagi but then again, he is not guaranteed to always be on the park.

You make a good point about your regular penalty taker being a regular start. With the squad nature of football hese days we do not have that many players who are guaranteed a start. Ironically defences are normally kept more stable than midfield and front lines so this would point to a defender being a good choice.

Thanks for the input.

He’s proven to be one of the best penalty takers around not just in this country and the last time we took him off them we gave it to Morelos and that went horribly 

He was too safe today trying to hit the target after missing the target last week when he usually goes for the corner. Every faith he’ll score the next one and the one after that

The chances of scoring penalties is pretty good no matter who you are so he probably does score the next one but you say he played it safe and I say he lacked confidence in taking it today. It has to be questioned when you miss two in a row and I'm sure it will be discussed in the dressing room.

and btw, as much as I love Morelos, I wouldn't give him penalties.

To be fair to him if the keeper goes the wrong way today then it’s not even a talking point but now that he’s been punished for playing it safe I doubt he will next time 

He’s good enough to wrap them into the corner every time so I’d rather he tried that every time even if one or two hit the post or go wide 

Agreed on Morelos when he took that penalty in the final at the time I thought I’d rather have just about anyone else on it. Think as a penalty taker you want a calmer head who has a bit of finesse
