It`s not that hard is it?

Following our third penalty miss on the trot, Nani has stepped forward with some kind of explanation as to how he managed to follow in the footsteps of Van Persie and Hernandez and miss from twelve yards.

Trying to explain away his attempt on Wednesday evening, this is what the Portuguese player had to say,

"I was waiting for the keeper to make a movement but he was very clever and didn`t move until I`d chosen a side."

"He made a great save. Next time it doesn`t matter who`s going to take the penalty - we`ll score."


Hopefully we will but we`re reliably informed that Sir Alex Ferguson has, officially, nominated Robin van Persie as our official penalty taker.

Starting to think we should just leave Rooney to take penalties and RVP as the back-up penalty taker. His record has been good for us and atleast when he picks his spot he sticks to it, nothing fancy about his penalties but they get the job done. Would say RVP for freekicks over Rooney though.

Often baffles me why scholes never takes them. The way he kicks a ball it'd be in the net before the keeper knew what was happening

The keeper wasn't clever you were just an idiot trying to show off, if I was Nani I'd be careful demanding an improved contract with his recent performances

Not wrong there bornared. Would love seeing Scholes take a penalty, bet he would cope with the pressure better than anyone else in the squad, not many are as cool, calm and relaxed with the ball at their feet as him. Heck, if he can hit a tree from 30 yards with ease and consistency I bet he can pick his spot with ease from the penalty spot.
