He’s adapted his technique big time since then hasn’t he, I almost feel sorry for goalkeepersWith Toney so reliable from the spot I was curious as to the only career penalty he failed to put away. It was in a 0-4 defeat in Peterborough v Barnsley..he wins the penalty (while it is still 0-0) at about 1:45...
It seems his technique has changed a bit since then.
Apologies if already posted but I did look.
Absolutely no chance. He won't miss a single penalty for us. We won't be playing Swansea in a PO final this year. And if we're in the PO final, we will win in normal timeYou just know that the first pen he misses will be the fifth, and deciding pen at Wembley, in the play off shoot out versus Swansea.
Didn't notice in the game, but on the highlights, his left leg has a fair bit of strapping on it.
Hopefully he'll get a rest on the international break and be back, fully fit next game.
How good is he and how good will he become. Incredible goal tally, and comparable with Watkins (did he score any penalties last season? Think all by Benrahma). IT doesn't seem to need many chances and has a great thing of being in the right place at the right time. His work bringing others in is also tremendous. I can't wait for him to score a goal from the edge of the box as he seems these are more difficult for him to hit right/get on target. Long may his good habits continue.
I remember. Comparing IT with OW on goal scoring gets a little skewed. I think IT is on 20 goals not including pens. I reckon he can get to 30 without pens for the regular season.
It's a toss up between him and Andrew Ayew I think.
I read it that the 40% sell on relates to Adam ArmstrongIt’s reported in the Shields Gazette that Newcastle have a 40 per cent sell on from when they sold him and this still applies.

This hopefully will make us keener to keep him as cashing in is less attractive.
They might be due a share of what Peterborough get as a sell on, just as Exeter do with Watkins.That 40% sell-on is definitely related to Adam Armstrong and nothing to concern us, as he's only moved once from Newcastle to Blackburn.
Ivan Toney went from Newcastle to Peterborough to us, so they won't have any stake in him whatsoever anymore.
