No More Spot Kicks

According to the tabloid press, Wayne Rooney has given up taking penalties.

After one or two mishaps, from the penalty spot Wayne has decreed,

"They weren`t good enough."

"To be honest, it was my choice. I went to speak with the manager and said, 'I spoke with Robin van Persie and said he can take them."

"At a club like this, to miss two penalties the way I have and not hit the target was not good enough."


A frank and honest admission from Rooney there, but I can`t help pondering if he`d step forward in a penalty shoot-out somewhere down the line!

I'LL MISS THOSE COMCAL ROW Z SPOT-KICKS!

Nice to see a player take responsibility and own up to their failings once in a while. More penalty practice as a whole is needed I feel though throughout the team. I can understand when they say you can't replicate the pressure in training but they should be capable of at least getting it on target. Get that right and your in with a shout and it's down to the keeper to look hero or mug rather than the taker looking a bloody donkey by sending the kick into orbit.

Two players admitting to their mistakes in one week?! Maybe they really have learnt their lesson and are being more humble. RVP should be the penalty kick taker full stop, he's the best at them afterall. Have to agree with MotorMad regarding penalty practice for the team, it's not just been RVP and Rooney who have missed them.
