It's obvious that we have a problem with penalty shots, since 2004 (after Larrazabal retired) we have failed 41,6% of the penalties

On the other side it seems that the referees used to not give penalties to Athletic (it happened several times this season)



Im looking at what happened in the last 2 matches, Betis and Granada. Where the referees gave penalties and we score them.

Althought it is soon to have conclusions I feel that our problem is beeing solved

Aduriz got to take a penalty because he wanted his hat-trick.
Normally Muniain would have taken it? He was lucky against Betis. Don't think it is resolved yet...

It will be resolved when we find a specialist with a decent % of success. So far we've had 2 games with 2 penalties scored by 2 different players.

That didn't last long. Pitiful effort from Aduriz there.
Hardly pitiful Olano....If the keeper went t'other way it would have looked very nice,but you are correct he should have scored.

He did however redeem himself and score which shouldn't be forgotten...great character shown.

I can't remember the last penalty I saw that the keeper didn't go one way or the other..crack it down the middle!!

Gorka against C.Ronaldo stayed in the middle and saved it last year (or 2 years before).

At Mestalla Diego Alves didn't dive in any direction, so there is no ideal penalty tactics imo.

I say choose your favourite corner down low and go for it, but keep your head up if the keeper makes an early move in that direction and place it in the other.

It takes some skills to do this but it's possible with practice I believe. Gaizka Mendieta was a master in this art if my memory doesn't fail me.
