You know how you can tell you're not Canadian? You call it Ice Hockey.   :cheers:

But if you just call it Hockey, what do you guys call the 'other' hockey? Ground Hockey?

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.

The major con is what happens if the keeper fouls the player? Penalties are fine as they are IMO. It's fair and decides the match...more skill involved than people say.

It's more what can be taken out of recent performances.

I like penalty shootouts. Despite the result, I loved every second of todays. Can't beat the drama.

I saw the match in bits and pieces as I was at work. Even though we were knocked out on penalties, I don't think they players should feel too despondent. Playing with 10 men for most of the match, and still looking the better side for much of it, even taking the lead, goes a long way to proving to themselves they  can do it, and keep working hard, the victory will come. WBA next up, they should have a great deal of confidence to winning this game.

There's not too many people overly disappointed tonight, "I love the F.A. Cup and we were showing the efc attitude. The players have started to fight. That I think, is why we're not too disappointed getting knocked out. Painful but, at least we're fighting now. Bryan Oviedo will be special as a player for Everton. Tim Cahill will be a bit jealous when Bryan shines. I keep going on about Bryan Oviedo, Pat me on the back if I'm right

Hate penalties but agree with the rest. I reckon Everton are playing some excellent football  8)

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?
to be fair to him its one thing being a keeper for pens in a U-21 game but when has he been the keeper in pens in a game of this level of importance where so much was put on him, including being a penalty taker

I just dont think any set of words can prepare a player for that experience; if in the long run he proves himself to be good enough this experience will do him well in the future

i was happy with the performance when we went down to 10 men, but not so happy upto that point west ham were playing poorly and we were so wasteful in the final 3rd and were not good enough to take advantage of our possesion, barkley was very poor up to when he went off and lukaku pretty much anonymous, it took the sending off to spark us into life and the introduction of mirallas made the difference. we are still giving away poor goals and both were down to very slack play. i really thought we would see the game out at 2-1 and progress but like a lot of games this season we never.
