doesn’t drogba have one of the worst penalty conversion rates too? while lampard has only missed like 2 in his whole career while being the main man for chelsea?


#1787

Probably a bonus for reaching a target


#1788

Yeah, Lampard was the designated penalty taker for Chelsea at the time.


#1789

I hear Lampard appealed to the FA to have him take it.


#1790

Wasn’t it Craig Johnstone, a Liverpool player, who rushed to get a toe to Ian Rush’s shot as it rolled across an unguarded line in an FA Cup final in the 80’s? Then carried on like a pork chop…on his own…while all his teammates went to Rush.

But Liverpool players would never stoop to levels like that.


#1791

He actually touched the ball though, so therefore he is entitled to celebrate. Kane didn’t. Quality player but clearly a very selfish one. To actually go down the appeals path to take a goal off his teammate says it all. Class act…


#1792

A selfish striker?

Perish the thought😄


#1793

I’m surprised Harry is going down this path but he is hardly on his lonesome if he has a selfish streak to him.
A truckload of top flight footballers (strikers) would definitely lean on being a little selfish.
To be honest when he plays and I watch them weekly I can’t remember him blazing away at goals instead of passing the ball to a team mate in a better position.
He is good at setting guys up in better positions.
Probably has had a few pot shots from long range at times but no more than anyone else.


#1794

The immediacy of Kane’s reaction convinced me that he felt it touch some part of his body. I suspect it was just his hair.


#1795

Its the foible of being a top striker, you take the good with the bad, the banging in goals with a hell of an ego.

because if you don’t have that ego you’d never walk out on the pitch.


#1796

Chelsea just rattled off 3 in 10 mins!


#1797

WOLVES PROMOTED!

Can’t wait to hang out in this thread :smile:

Thanks to Fosun and Mendes and hoping for big things this time around. A few EPL clubs are already worried about the relationship but it’s been great for us to date!


#1798

Congratulations but who’s left to post in EFL thread now lol.


#1799

Some Ipswich supporter LOL… (Sorry bugman I think)


#1800

HAP - Boro?


#1801

Can we seen the toons back?


#1802

Hope not


#1803

DDG, I don’t watch other any other top leagues besides EPL. Surely he would be in the discussion for best GK in Europe


#1804

Was only a formality but would would have been nice to atleast not give them the title by losing to the bottom side at OT


#1805

Up the toon :heart_eyes: we have been on fire since january
