He had a great game overall and seems to be gaining more and more confidence.

Maybe not quite so great in the penalty shootouts but I can't stand penalty shootouts anyway and I wonder if an alternative way of deciding a tie could be thought of which is less to do with luck of the draw.

You think pens are a bad way of going out of the cup but it's worse in rugby. If a game is a draw it is decided on the team who scored the most tries. If they are level at that it's the away team. Was watching a local game the other day. Side from Division 6 played at home against a side from Div 1. With two minutes to go the underdogs are 3-0 up. Last minute penalty to Div 1 side takes it to 3-3 and they go through. Heart breaking

Let's be fair Robles had a very good game and looked the best he's done in an Everton shirt by a country mile, but during the penalties he looked like a rabbit in the headlights and he should have been the keeper that looked unbeatable.

Theres clearly confidence issues with him but who's the goalkeeping coach who's let him retract back into his shell at the end like that?

But doesn't that tell you that he had better reading for the pens than Joel, or did his homework better?

Don't want to argue over this as I don't think Joel should hang his head in any way, he played a stormer, but he needs to work on that area of his game.
To me it says Adrian can only dive one way, anyways that's that

Yeah that sounds shit and unfair. I wonder if they should have extra time in rugby or something similar.

At the top level they do now - and penalty shoot outs. I have the dubious honour of being present at the only professional penalty shoot out between Cardiff and Leicester in the European Cup Semi Final in 2009. Cardiff sadly lst

I've often wondered about an ice hockey style of penalty where a player has the ball 30 yards out and has 15 seconds or so to put the ball in the net. Would put more emphasis on skill, but might be even more harsh on keepers.

I dunno, it's feels cruel when you lose but pens are simple, and get the job done. I don't mind them really.

We had a good go there. Joel my new mate! did the business. It's a big shame about the result but that's better.

I remember America having "penalties" with the player starting with the ball on the halfway or near to it and the having to run and try and take the keeper on.

Does this still happen?

Yeah that's kinda like the ice hockey system. Be interesting to see a few to see its pro cons.

No idea if it's still being used though, might imply if it works or not.

Am I reading this right - folk are looking at / shifting reason to  Joel in the pens....? Even for their first goal, for sure it could of "hit him" but the three passes from their 18 yard line to the shot that completely took out 2/3 of our team was not his fault, he is just left to pick up the pieces..... come on, yes the guy has given reason to berate him, but now looks pretty good, he's what we have for now, so support him

Lets not forget we should of won this last week at home, blaming anyone is just not on right now, plenty of positives last 3 games.

He played like a top keeper. I wasn't looking for penalties, I'm thinking "oh fuck"! We wouldn't of got that far, but for some of the lads covering and saves. Was I watching a different game?
