Penalty Taker?

Not that we ever get any these days but if we were awarded a penalty who would take it? Ameobi seemed to be the one who took them since Shearer retired but he's out for the season now so who's next in line? Solano has been known to take them. Dyer has also taken a couple. We haven't really got anyone who can blast the ball (and keep it on target) anymore apart from maybe N'Zogbia. Who do you think it should be?

We have quite a few free kick 'specialists' in N'Zogbia, Solano, Emre, Milner and (cough) Luque. Being good at free kicks doesn't always seem to translate into taking good penalties though for some reason. I've never seen Martins hit a dead ball so it's hard to say how good he is at it.

for so called free kick specialists their goal records are absolutely abysmal! Emre hasn't scored for a year and his set pieces are woeful IMO, he rarely get the ball past the first man!

Martins should take the penalties I feel, hes our main striker and needs the goals at the moment.

 

I wouldn't even be too bothered if he missed a couple as long as hes got the bottle to take them

 

Good call. Obviously Martins felt the same.

At the moment we're like a High School team, everyone puts their hands up and says "Can I take it? Can I take it?" But I say the best penalty takers we have is probably solano and Luque, yes I know you don't like Luque, but he has a calm experienced head who can slot the ball into the side of the goal. I also think that Martins should take the penalties to build up his goal-scoring confidence.

Got to be nobby or perhaps martins, prefer anyone to shola, i shit myself every time he steps up

It's true the crowd do tend to shit themselves when Shola steps up to take a penalty but I'm pretty sure he's scored all the one's he's taken during the normal 90 minutes (I'm not sure about shoot outs though).

 

Well done Martins. Looks like my thread turned out to be a lucky omen "Not that we ever get any these days but if we were awarded a penalty who would take it"!

I'm always pretty confident when Shola steps up personally. Think he missed one in a friendly a couple of years back, but he's been pretty clinical when it's mattered.

 

Couldn't believe it when Martins was shaping to hit it on his right foot, fair play though, he tucked it away.
