Lampard 's shoot was not bad. Shay Given's save was awesome

I gotta' say, a good penalty is one that cannot be stopped, no matter how much the goalkeeper flies. Otherwise it's just a bad one unless he just got lucky somehow. Lampard's scoring knack in penalties comes from wrongfooting the goalkeeper or just letting one rip to the corner that just has to go in before the keeper's hands get to it. Had to happen that rainy night, no denying Given is one of the best stoppers on the planet though, even his reputation could have had an effect on Lampard beforehand. Ahh whatever the reason, disappointing result that night

Lampard hasn't missed for so long. It was gonna' happen some time. Now lets slot in another 30 penalties before letting any keepers get to your shots again. I don't get why lamps and cech have been recieving so much critisism. Both have been playing great lately. Cech has had his blunders, but look at some of the saves he's made this season. Some of them have been astonishing. And lampard may not be scoring as much as he has in past seasons, but lets face it, we haven't needed many more goals recently (aside from the last week of course)

Lampard's penalty against Portsmouth made up for the previous shot...
