What an awful penalty shoot out. And how could Newport not spot something with Steele?
He went the right way for EVERY kicker, even standing in the centre for one. Narrowly missed other 2 but saved 4 of the 7. Camera showed him hiding his bottle under his towel. I know they can't see his bottle from half way but after 3 or 4 penalties, even I sussed it. He done what pickford clearly done at the World Cup the other year. He would have had the way they shoot on his well hidden bottle.
So change it.
Why don't players mix their penalties up? If they mix them up, then keepers are always left guessing.

If Steele noted how 5 NEWPORT players took their penalties, then credit to him, If he couldn't trust Maupay et al to beat them in 120 minutes that is....

I agree. Fair play to Steele. He done his homework. But surely Newport should have noticed the same thing I did, and changed the way they take them.
Or practice, and take action whenever it occurs, taking penalties and hitting them all over.

One way of making sure the keeper can't save them, but I'm not sure it's ultimately going to be successful!!! :LOL: :LOL:

I thought the shoot out was the most entertaining part of the game. Some magnificent saves from both keepers and Steele redeemed himself after his error that cost them the normal time win.

Steele went on a mad one a couple of times last night, just lucky it only bit him on the backside once..

Wolves Everton started off with a bang but the second half is dull and bitty.

Do I switch to Utd Burnley? And watch Burnley grimly hang on only to conceed a last minute penalty?

Ahead of them on PPG now then.......but still behind Swansea.......think we might need to keep an eye on this 'table'....
Frustratingly, 3 points against Brizzle City would have put us 2nd on PPG too.

In the absence of our games, I’m keeping an eye on Rochdale for goals. 7 in the last 2 games. Unfortunately they can’t defend, and only have 2 points to show for them! Highly entertaining though...
2 goals, amazing goals from a 17 year old on the left wing last night vs Charlton. He made Charlton’s experienced RB Chris Gunter look pretty silly
They have been raving about him on Sky’s the Transfer Show

Nice touch from Arsenal having the Crystal Palace badge on the wall where visiting fans would have been.
Highlight of the night though! (0-0)
