What Player Would You Have, Right Now To Take One Penalty To Rule Them All?
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
I would say Steven Gerrard or Messi, Messi makes the keeper guess wrong every time. What player would you choose, to put an important penalty in the back of the net?
VanPersie (Arsenal) 5 years ago
Berbatov.... Not

Best penalty taker of the lot.... Matt le tissier.... I think he missed one.  Real cool customer from the spot.
Juno (AC Milan) 4 years ago
Same vote for Le God. He aims the higher corners of the goal every time...
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 4 years ago
I agree Le Tissier is probably one of, if not the best penalty taker of all time. But I was trying to see what people think of modern players, who would they have to take the penalty. Le God is incredible though, don't get me wrong, he converted 48 in 49 how can you argue with that. But if you had to choose from somebody playing today who would it be. For me it is Messi

Saw this list of greatest pk takers...Link: www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-1227264...

Well, I'd prefer Del Piero better
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Great list, very cool
Johnbull (Millwall) 4 years ago
Teddy Sheringham every time, never doubted any of his Pens for the Lions
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Teddy Sherinham is class, good one. What about someone who is still playing?
Johnbull (Millwall) 4 years ago
There's a bloke that plays for Burnley, I think his name is Alexander, I hear he has never missed, but I love to watch Gerrard taking pens. The best laugh I've had though was watching the pires and henry disaster a few seasons back, classic
Yamsy (Liverpool) 5 years ago
I know who I wouldnt pick.... Cough.... John Terry.... Cough.... I would trust Del Piero to take the Penalty, he's just soooooo calm.... he rolls it into the net...

Giorgakis (Olympiakos Piraeus) 5 years ago
Ya that's true definetely not JT but Del Piero is a good chioce
Hill (Arsenal) 5 years ago
Hey common now. Ronaldo you can't laugh at that! Your miss in that shootout was even worse! At least Terry slipped, you just stutter stepped and hit a terrible shot. Very cheeky effort for a miss
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Agreed
Yogan (Chelsea) 4 years ago
Yeah, Italy are class at penalties. Grosso scored the 06 WC final winner though! It was a great one. Not JT or Becks, they just aren't cool enough. I think England are crap at penalties but Lampard hasn't missed a penalty in ages and I would say he is one of the best in the world. Then Gerrard, and third Ronaldo!
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Del Piero is definitely clutch, Messi just looks so brilliant right now he waits for the goalie to dive and puts it the other way
ManUK (Manchester United) 5 years ago
Ronnie
[account-removed] 5 years ago
YAY ME!

I think I only bottled a pen 4 times!

Apart from that I scored every time!

I always like Argie Tevez Pens!

I like how he shuffles along!
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Ronaldo is pretty solid from the spot, except in the champions league final
ManUK (Manchester United) 5 years ago
Haha LoL. Yay you
Samdagooner (Arsenal) 5 years ago
Remember that miss against West Ham last year.... You completely missed the net Ronaldo! I almost forgot, you missed that crucial penalty against Barca too!
Momoali (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Also v barcelona that was real bed hahahahahaha
Elninoyash (Liverpool) 5 years ago
GARETH BARRY
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Over Gerrard?
ManUK (Manchester United) 5 years ago
Yeah Gerrard's pretty solid too
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Gerrard is absolute class, I think Rafa should start letting Torres take them when Gerrard is out, he used to take them for Atletico when he was like 19 years old and stick them in haha. He is a great finisher, I am sure he is ruthless from the spot
Samdagooner (Arsenal) 5 years ago
Del Piero, Totti are excellent but I would pick Ballack. Never seen him miss a penalty
SergioRamos (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Del piero.    Seriousley Cool Dude
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
I would have Zidane take it haha
Giorgakis (Olympiakos Piraeus) 5 years ago
Of course I agree Zidade is ze legend lol
Agspiratos (Panathinaikos Athens) 5 years ago
Zizou and del piero
Hill (Arsenal) 5 years ago
Andrew Hill
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Who is that haha
Hill (Arsenal) 5 years ago
Probably the best player to never be discovered. Whose never missed a penalty in a match. On a two goal per match strike rate. Me. LoL
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Ha nice that's tight I would love to take a penalty in the World Cup That would probably be the most thrilling thing in the World haha
Yamsy (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Just hope you don't miss...
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Yep haha that's all you can hope for, you just got to know you'll put it in
Hill (Arsenal) 5 years ago
Oh man yeah it would. Especially if its the one to win it
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
You would probably be shot if you didn't off yourself first haha just kidding I hope not, but I would be sad about life if I missed that sort of penalty haha
Hill (Arsenal) 5 years ago
I would be too. I'd quit football. No, I'd quit life and sit on the coach, get fat, and watch tv....


"f*****g Chuck Norris"

StrikersMT28 (Seattle Sounders) 5 years ago

SergioRamos (Liverpool) 5 years ago
I would say berbetov. He's calm but then again he let manunited down the other day. I will say del piero. He's seriousle calm
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 5 years ago
Ya Del Piero is class, don't know about Berbatov
SergioRamos (Liverpool) 5 years ago
